In the techno heads opinion- whats the Techno booking of the year so far? IMO Dave Clarke this Sat. is it. I am obviously ahead of myself but booking-wise think its the biggest. Liebing at Pacha was Epic as well.
Dave Clarke is def up there, but I'm also excited about Shifted next weekend (I highly suggest you to be there, Taurus) and of course the Ostgut Ton night on July 3rd. There are other bookings that I'm excited about, but I can't talk about them yet... Booking of the year for me would be Paul Kalkbrenner in a big open space, festival style. Throw in Egbert and now we're talking. Yeah, I know, I'm spoiled. NY is so behind, I don't see this getting the support needed for it to happen. Plastikman's new show needs to be brought as well, as is Carl Craig's 69 Live. Still rallying for Terence Fixmer and Len Faki, I'd die if I saw them booked here. Or Pfirter. It's always the same names coming around, it's getting boring. If I see DVS1 booked one more time this year it means no one is taking a chance with anything new although Tar and Feathered guys are impressing me and I have hope. So many I'd love to see but nobody is willing to take a risk with bringing different names. And don't even get me started with the pseudo techno.
Also, I hope promoters are reading this: PAN-POT! What are you waiting for, people?! I'm damn sure I'm not the only one who's been asking for them lately.
