Capacity 999 feat Dave Clarke [Unsubscribe, United Kingdom] Fri 1st of Nov
Thick as Thieves, Stable Music & Fünf Touring present,
DAVE CLARKE [Unsubscribe, United Kingdom]
With the techno sound back on the rise in Australia, it gives us great pleasure to announce the return of the Baron of Techno, Mr. Dave Clarke. For this special occasion we have chosen to awaken a forgotten space of our city, the infamous Roxanne. With a monster Nexo Rig installed especially for the show you know Clarke will unleash the hell in one of the few venues that has no sound restrictions at all.
After many years of working together, Funf Touring, Thick As Thieves & Stable Music will team up to bring you an experience like no other with one of the worlds premier techno icons, Dave Clarke.
He may be known as The Baron Of Techno, a moniker given to him by renowned BBC Radio DJ / journalist John Peel, but Dave Clarke has an anarchist streak a mile wide and punk in his soul, having no truck with establishment figures or authoritarianism. A hard working purist, forward thinking futurist, technology geek, part Gothic and gadget lover who embraced the digital revolution in an early stage while his peers where still sniffing the smell of vinyl, a format he hasn’t used professionally in eleven years. It’s unsurprising he revels in the libertarianism of the World Wide Web. It gives symmetry to his savvy techno vision.
Clarke’s vast determination to stubbornly follow his own path in the music industry, along with his outspoken opinion on many a subject, was not hailed by his peers with enthusiasm on many occasions. Criticized for being a futurist in the early zeros – he was the first techno artist to release an internet only single in 2000 – his main motive was, and still is, to deliver music to the ears of his global audience oblivious to pigeonholes, politics, prejudice or other people’s opinions. As Clarke explains: “This is techno, it’s supposed to be forward-looking”.
