ormai conoscete l'entusiasmo con il quale siamo soliti annunciare i nostri ospiti. Non fa certo eccezione il prossimo con il quale chiuderemo la nostra stagione inverno/primavera per aprire quella primavera/estate.
Oltretutto stiamo parlando di SILENT SERVANT.
Era infatti diverso tempo che speravamo di poterlo vedere in azione a Codalunga.
Il momento è arrivato ed abbiamo tutta la notte a disposizione per lasciarci in balia del suo suono.
Che la Liberazione totale cominci già dal 24 notte dunque.
SILENT SERVANT is a producer responsible for some of the most eclectic and innovative techno to have emerged in recent years. Part of an exhilarant creative resurgence in the genre, he is also the newest talent in the Sandwell District line-up.
Along with Regis and Female, of the legendary English Downwards imprint, and NYC underground legend Function, Silent Servant has not only founded a new, contemporary sound, but also the support needed for the basis of a highly conceptual and uncompromising new label rooted in experimentalism and a semi-industrial aesthetic.Without doubt the most eminent underground techno label of the moment, Sandwell District has, since 2002, established itself as a flag bearer for experimental techno, a raw and enigmatic collective putting forward the most consistent of musical outputs, and refusing to fit into the normal parameters of what an electronic label is perceived to be.With support from all quarters (they count Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock, Len Faki and the Berghain crew, Laurent Garnier, Jeff Mills, Sleeparchive, Speedy J and Troy Pierce among their many devotees) they have not just blurred the boundaries of techno, but have dissolved them and re-built it in their own unique image. Stripping away some of the brutality and incorporating a stiff dose of broken beats as well as embracing a certain noise-drenched minimalism into their productions, Silent Servant soon became one of the core artists of this label.His own productions are often deep, dubby, dense, off-kilter and melancholy; in their very essence beautiful, forward thinking and timeless. An ardent lover of vinyl, his sets are a reinterpretation of early '80s post-punk electronics paired with the deep, metallic sounds of Basic Channel and Downwards, delivering modern and unexpected classics from each and every performance. Having already entertained crowds at staple nights such as Droid (LA), Rockets (Osaka), Bunker and Octave (NYC), Smart Bar (Chicago), and regularly at Berlin’s notorious Berghain, a venue that has benefited more than once from a special 5 hour set.Early 2011 will bring imminent remixes for Ibadan and Kontra, as well as a much anticipated LP for Sandwell District that will no doubt continue to plough the deepest reaches of his talent, and strive to meet the standard of quality that the name Silent Servant has come to represent.
