ONE NIGHT STAND returns in 2014 and we've gone 15 levels above to concoct one of our most mind-melting shows ever.
FEBRUARY 1st - OXFORD ART FACTORY
ANDREW WEATHERALL - ALL NIGHT LONG
Yup, from open to close it'll be the bearded maestro taking us on a monumental journey like nobody else can. As far as innovators of electronic music go, they don't come much more legendary than Andrew Weatherall.
In terms of length, diversity, impact and sheer quality, his résumé is quite simply extraordinary. He was one of the guys behind the seminal Boy's Own record label throughout the '90s. He's an unparalleled tastemaker who compiled some of the most iconic releases of the past 20 years (9 O'Clock Drop on Nuphonic, anyone?). He personally remoulded Primal Scream's sound and changed London clubbing forever. He's been one of the most prolific, original and in-demand remixers in dance history, servicing artists like My Bloody Valentine, Bjork, New Order, The Chemical Brothers and Ricardo Villalobos. His releases under various monikers and collaborations, particularly Two Lone Swordsmen and The Sabres of Paradise on Warp Records, are revered as cult classics spanning experimental electronica, IDM, new wave, techno and downtempo. And his reputation in the studio is matched by his reputation behind the decks, from the days of playing Danny Rampling's pioneering 'Shoom' nights around the birth of acid house through to headlining some of the world's current top festivals and clubs.
Nothing has slowed down in recent years either. His own Rotters Golf Club imprint, now 12 years deep, has been a driving force for UK electro music and, this past February, was resurrected with an album by Weatherall's latest project with Tim Fairplay, called The Asphodells, which explores his passion for lower tempo dubby house and disco. He's been constantly globetrotting: last year he headlined the Electric Elephant Festival in Croatia, topped the bill of Bugged Out Weekender with regular partner behind the decks Ivan Smagghe, and was invited to team up with cult disco hero and fellow Brit DJ Harvey for a once in a lifetime RA Versus set during the Amsterdam Dance Event. He also released his three disc Masterpiece compilation on Ministry of Sound, which Resident Advisor described as "the most coherent commercial mix of his long, sometimes puzzling but always fascinating, career."
For a man who's been at the top of the underground for more than two decades, Andrew Weatherall is still making it known that he's one of the most crucial musical talents we've got.
We'll have the whole OAF to ourselves, with the side room being soundtracked by a quartet of Sydney greats:
