Over the weekend, techno fans experienced a night of uncompromisingly high-quality music, courtesy of Nightowl. Motion’s main room became an intimate space filled with galvanised lasers and futuristic rhythms.
Desolat label boss Loco Dice headlined the night, bringing his unique cinematic flair to his carefully cultivated distinct sound. Cloaking the audience in clouds of smoke and pulsating lights, he blasted his hip-hop influenced sensory tunes ahead of his eagerly anticipated performance at Sonus this summer.
The night was also monumental in the sense that it was Fuse figurehead Enzo Siragusa’s Bristol debut. A long-time coming, the legendary underground DJ showcased some supremely minimal, dynamic sound. Drawing in a new crowd of Fuse fanatics.
They were also joined by the ever-eclectic B.Traits. Stepping away from the Radio 1 booth, she surprised a sceptical audience by playing some highly skilled, authentic techno. Proving that she can seamlessly move between commercial and underground sounds.
All in all, the night was an intimate gathering for Bristol’s die-hard techno fans to experience some cutting-edge music from a carefully chosen handful of artists.
