After three events that have welcomed Roman Flügel, Floating Points and a special back-to-back sessions from Steffi and Nick Höppner, One Night With is back, once again joining forces with the German techno superlative, Ostgut Ton.
The first name of the Osgut Ton dup that'll be descending upon Wire in Leeds city centre this time will be Dutch tastemaker Martyn. After gaining experience as a drum & bass and dub producer, becoming a revered musician in both scenes, Martyn has turned his head towards techno, now boasting releases on Warp Records, Watergate, Ninja Tune and of course Ostgut Ton, on which he released the single ‘Miniluv’ as well as his remix of Shed’s interestingly named ‘Another Wedged Chicken’. Bringing in elements from all his previous ventures, Martyn has created a sound that is broken, semi-robotic and very powerful.
Also joining Martyn will be the mutli-talented female artist Virginia. Not only as a DJ, but a songwriter, singer and producer, Virginia has been an exceptional core of talent since she began releasing her music just before the onset of this decade. With releases on Ostgut Ton, Poker Flat and Area Remote, whilst collaborating with many other artists including Steffi, on her beautiful, late night, melody ridden ride of stabs and emotion, ‘Yours’.
With the large difference in style and potential for both artists to dip and dive from deep lows and devastating highs, were in for another treat with Ostgut Ton and One Night With on Friday the 28th November.
