❭ ❭ ❭ BIOGRAPHY
Having enjoyed a breathlessly successful 2015, there can be no doubting ALAN FITZPATRICK’s position as one of the most influential electronic artists of the moment. Pumped up by yet another series of head-turning productions over the previous twelve months, the Englishman’s profile continues to transition rapidly from the techno underground towards the electronic music main stage , attracting significant attention from BBC Radio 1, Mixmag and Resident Advisor and elevating Fitzpatrick to the position of global headliner. A status supported by the release of Fitzpatrick’s Fabric 87 mix compilation in April 2016 and the accompanying 25-date tour that will roll out across Europe before touching down in North and South America.
SLAM instigated Glasgow’s underground House music scene in the late 1980s, going on to be instrumental in the explosion of the UK Techno scene, and their quarter of a century of exploits have seen them travel far and wide, leaving scorch marks on dance floors everywhere while taking their uncompromising vision of Techno around the world. Over the last 3 years the pair have also developed ‘Slam Radio’, delivering some of the best DJs and music that Techno has to offer to a massive and loyal weekly following, with a truly underground flavour.
Legend says HYMST was born in Decadance. He’s been a resident for years and knows how to translate fresh techno vibes into a steaming warming-up set like no other. Don’t be shy to step forward and let you float into the night.
For all the emphasis on good times and euphoria in clubland there’s always been a dark side to electronic music, a side that 24 year old DJ/producer and one of Belgium’s most exciting export products CHARLOTTE DE WITTE has readily embraced. Founder of the KNTXT concept, she tries to provide high quality line ups time after time, before closing down Fuse herself.
