Label and monthly event team Machine reach their fifth milestone this Friday!
If you don’t already know, Machine is the brainchild of veteran DJ Simon Slieker and Psy-Harmonics label co-owner Andrew Till. Together, they’ve carefully forged a niche in no-bullshit techno that operates on stripped-back and minimal aspects of beats, and a strong minimal visual aesthetic on their flyers and merchandise.
Machine have also have released sixteen albums at this time of publication from artists like Enclave, Linus and Vincenn.
Many proponents of Machine often cite the hypnotic depth of their beats that one can aesthetically connect with science, trance-like states, space and the often anxiety-provoking and mechanical nature of our urban climate.
To celebrate this occasion, Machine have invited America’s Truncate back their event. California is more known for superficial and showy beats, but also has a small cult following of deep techno in producer/DJs like Truncate and Drumcell that has developed into something bigger.
Truncate has been played by such luminaries as Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Chris Liebing and Speedy J, and has released tracks on 40 labels including CLR, Droid and Electric Deluxe.
He had a massive showing in January 2012 last time at Machine, and this one looks to be a similar story with over 200 people recorded as attending on their Facebook event page, with many excited comments in abundance.
Simon Slieker and Andrew Till will be play as support DJs in support of Truncate, and I’m sure are very proud for holding strong and true to their brand and vision for electronic music in Melbourne.
This event is at My Aeon, as have all their events for the last five years.
