After roaming around the capital hosting some of the most exciting parties in London over recent months, We Concur will be debuting at Shapes Warehouse with a techno extravaganza on Friday 15th July.
We Concur will be utilizing Hackney Wick’s Shapes for its first ever knees up of this kind, which comes as a surprise as its raw aesthetic and booming sound system lend perfectly to the techno sound. Bringing the noise to this audacious occasion will be four of the most in demand selectors in the genre, namely the Spanish titan Oscar Mulero, British stalwart Perc, the ever on point Ø [Phase] and Jonas Kopp, not to mention one of We Concur’s favourite guests. Jamie Haus.
Oscar Mulero is nothing short of techno royalty. Whether it’s through his own record labels Warm Up Recordings and Pole Recordings or other highly sought after imprints including Surface and Token, he has mounted an extensive and impressive back catalogue comprising some of the most brutal and trippy sounds there are. If Mulero doesn’t sate your appetite for intensity then the London based Perc will. Playing live, Perc is not just one of techno’s fondest figures, he is a reference point for dance music as a whole. Known for his unrelentingly hard performances, Perc can be seen as a live artists or a DJ, however this will see him unveiling his brand new updated live show for the first time ever.
Token mainstay and perhaps an artist who has only just come into his own over the past couple of years, Ø [Phase] is one of the freshest and most exciting artists to fall under the techno banner. With several highly acclaimed releases having dropped over the past year including his LP on his home of Token Records and EP’s on both Dystopian and CLR, this cements him as a worthy producer, with his skills as DJ complementing this even more. Ostgut Ton’s Jonas Kopp is next, who has ten years of practice under his belt and finally we have Jamie Haus, who, like the others, has stretched his number of impressive releases out failing to disappoint.
