Techno fans heading to 5 Days Off this year are in safe hands once again because Electric Deluxe are back on the bill with a patented all star cast in tow. Taking over day two of the much-loved Amsterdam music festival, be prepared for some first class entertainment from talents cherry picked from across Europe.
Berghain resident Marcel Fengler has been turning his skills to all sorts since the release of Fokus back in July, his long-awaited debut album. Known for his slightly skewed but never disappointing selection, Fengler is always a delight behind the decks. He’ll be joined by Truss, AKA MPIA3—or Donor / Truss when in tandem with his transatlantic partner, Greg Schappert. Real name Tom Russell, this hardworking, harder-hitting DJ and producer from London has been rising to the fore with releases on R&S, Perc Trax and Our Circular Sound, with ever fervour intent.
Next: Abdulla Rashim—the person—might be a slight enigma, but his music on Prologue and Semantica (outside his own Abdulla Rashim Records) speaks for itself. The young Swede has already amassed a legion of fans. And his live shows are not to be missed. Will & Ink are another formidable live act. Having debuted on record with their eponymous Delsin sublabel—and one killer EP—the Amsterdam-based duo have been impressing with their keen sound design and custom-made set ups.
Jean Pierre Enfant, resident DJ at TrouwAmsterdam and founder of the infamous Les Enfants Terribles parties, almost concludes the bill. But it wouldn’t be an EDP party without a member from the extended family. And so it’s with great privilege we welcome Chris Liebing to the line up, one of EDLX’s founding collaborators and long time associates.
As ever, host, chief and ELDX mastermind Speedy J will take a turn behind the decks, this time together with Collabs partner and long-time label affiliate Chris Liebing. Their set will be supported by specially commissioned visuals created by artist Florence To. Synched to different frequencies in Speedy J’s set, Florence To’s audio-visual installation promises to be a deep immersive and spatial-altering experience. You’ve been warned..
