Ben Klock will return to the London Printworks in March next year for another Photon themed party. Presented by the labels Klockworks and The Hydra, it will be the third edition of an event that is known for its audiovisual ornament, and which will naturally host the owner of Klockworks, Ben Klock. A symbol of Berlin’s techno, Klock needs no introduction: he owns an inexhaustible energy that allows him to marathon sets, he is known for his aggressive and powerful techno that does not let anyone stop for a second on the dancefloor. In addition to Klock, there will be names such as his friend Dax J, Rødhåd, KiNK (in a live set vs. Kirilik, another of his aliases) or FJAAK.
From Dax J is expected a techno at a frenetic pace, dark and sinister melodies, as well as tracks that, according to himself, reflect his past as a raver.
Rødhåd, who will perform at Lux Frágil in Lisbon on December 20th, has as his stylistic mark the ability to combine smooth and agitated rhythms, oscillate between house and dub techno at a supersonic speed, and the deep and melancholic elements of his tracks.
KiNK, Bulgarian producer residing in Sofia, runs on a set also a record between house and techno; he has as distinctive feature his experimental boldness, which allows him, among other things, to reinvent disco and electronic music classics, or occasionally to allow ravers to participate in loco in his live-set. It will be his Photon debut.
From FJAAK – who were at the Industria Club last October -, a trio who started their career at the illegal parties on the outskirts of Berlin, one would expect raw techno, violent and aggressive bass; they are able to articulate in their live-sets an energetic peaktime with sophisticated breakbeats and melodies that resemble ambient and deep house.
The Georgian Newa, who contributed with a track for the “Klockworks 20” compilation, and Adiel, resident DJ at the Goa Club in Rome, complete a line-up of respect.
Since the concept was launched, Kockworks presents Photon has toured numerous nightclubs all over the world, such as Berghain in Berlin, Gashouder in Amsterdam, Bassiani in Tbilisi or Avant Gardner in New York. Now is returning departure home: London. Inspired by the photon concept, the event combines sound, light and architecture, rising stars and established producers.
