After great reviews from our first party of the year, Luna returns for an early summer party at Boutique, showcasing the talents of Irish Techno artist, Psycatron.
Berlin:Detroit - a musical alliance that resonates deeply with electronic music lovers around the world and has done for the past two decades. Add Belfast to this equation and you have Irish duo Psycatron who have dropped releases on both sides of the Atlantic through Carl Craig's Planet E Communications from Detroit, as well as Berlins' Tresor imprint, while also finding time for the odd excursion on the likes of Scuba's Hotflush Recordings, R&S Records, Cocoon and their own Inflyte Records, which alongside being a home for their own output, has featured material from the likes of Francesco Tristano, Dave Clarke, Kirk Degiorgio and Claude Young.
Their touring schedule has followed a similar global trajectory, touching down everywhere from Fabric to Berghain, The Rex Club and Barracca, to Movement Festival in Detroit, I Love Techno in Belgium and many more of the best clubs and festivals worldwide. In between tours they continue their long-standing residency at Ireland's longest-running techno institution, Shine in Belfast as well as regularly appearing at John Digweed's Bedrock parties.
With musical influences ranging from Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk to Underground Resistance and Jean Michel Jarre, it's easy to see where the raw emotion, tension and energy prevalent in their music stems from. Being born less than 12 hours apart and subsequently growing up hitting the same techno parties in Belfast, is another common bond that has helped shape the Psycatron sound, where the past clearly influences the future but has an entirely different slant on it.
Touring with Carl Craig and Planet E, ending up on Fact Magazines Top 50 Tracks of the year and performing on London's infamous Boiler Room TV are some of the recent highlights of this duos career who among their fan count you'll find the likes Depeche Mode's Martin L Gore, Francois K and Dave Clarke.
Joining Psycatron will be local hero and Luna Promoter/Resident DJ, Steve Parry fresh from his debut as artist of the week on Frisky Radio. This successful debut has lead to a regular monthly show in conjunction with his record label, Selador which is making great strides in the electronic music industry. The label was launched by Dave Seaman and Steve in 2013 and has recently celebrated its first birthday.
Warming up proceedings at Luna will be Adele Moss. After winning the mUmU Dj Competition, opportunities haven’t been short for this exciting new talent. Adele has held residencies for mUmU and also Freeze’s Little Sister. She has also played some of the country’s biggest nights including Fabric in London and WHP in Manchester. Adele is one to watch for the future.
Tickets for the night start at a limited early bird price of £6, so grab them whilst you can.
