Can a party be too good? Richie Hawtin’s ENTER. at Space can make you feel restless and agitated at times as there is simply so much going on simultaneously. Treating yourself to the excellent Tale of us? Well, you are missing out on Richie Hawtin in the main room. Dancing to Spain’s shooting star Paco Osuna makes you miss Maceo Plex. And while checking out the new ENTER.Mind, which is absolutely recommended, you can’t shake the thought of Magda and Matador on the other floors. A memorable August 29th!
It is certainly a feat in itself to have all the aforementioned names at one party. Well, THE party on Thursdays, to be clear. Richie Hawtin’s line-ups seem to be getting bigger and bigger as we are approaching the end of the summer. This Thursday startet with Dubfire in the packed Sake Bar. Trying a ‘real’ warm-up with slower house didn’t really work out so it was only 45 minutes into the set that Dubfire finally took off with his original sound. But when he did it was a remarkable presentation of his master class.
The great number of punters then moved on to the main room as it was the host Richie Hawtin himself who started early that night. Starting with moody and dark techno and quickly picking up pace it was one of his best sets of this season. With banging, no-gimmick techno Hawtin kidnapped our minds and let us wander into outer sound space.
Valention Kanzyani had it difficult on the terrace as most people at that time wouldn’t miss Hawtin, but by the end of his set we saw a good number of house-aficionados shaking it to his Cadenza beats. With huge cues at the entrance the terrace filled quickly during Magda’s set, who played her house-infused techno vibes. Tale of us were next and what they create at the Space terrace everytime they’re on can only be described as pure magic. To get a good impression (re)listen to the track of the night, which was the duo’s remix of Mano le Tough ‘Primative People’. With a bizarre bass line and a hypnotic melody it is the perfect epitome of Tale of us’ current sound.
On the main stage the Irish ‘Torero of Techno’ Matador granted the lucky audience one of his live performances before Paco Osuna had this week’s honour of closing out ENTER.Main.
As the terrace goes – we’re still unsure whether it still exists this morning as Maceo Plex set out on what can only be described as the complete destruction of the floor by his bass heavy house sounds. This night is as good as it sounds – and there are only four dates left. Take the next step!
