Leeds will welcome Perc Trax production outfit Forward Strategy Group on Saturday 26th August, with E/L\M, Mal_Hombre and Martin Precious b2b Darren Broomhead also booked in for Wire thanks to Dubtek. Offering captivating techno with brutalist rhythms and dark excursions through IDM and synth-led weirdness, the night ought to be memorable for presenting a side of the techno scene that is rarely exhibited in Leeds.
With releases under their belt for multiple labels and in multiple countries, the FSG duo have compounded the success brought by their enigmatic “buy on site” label to reach broader appeal, and with a bunch of releases on Perc Trax now under their belts they know plenty about making dancefloor sledgehammers. That’s something that Spanish DJ of nearly a decade E/L\M is similarly skilled in, though his gothic palette stretches all the way into noise and industrial as well as haunting ambient.
