The 19th edition of Oscillate will take place on August 24th - 25th in our home of ://about blank, featuring a special 90 minute live performance from Karen Gwyer. The innovative artist has a forthcoming EP shared over two sides with our resident Johanna Knutsson on our label Oscillate Tracks. Her pieces for the split EP have been described as luscious, emotive IDM yet her live sets are better known for her shimmering, pummeling techno. Joining her will be Blackest Ever Black’s Pessimist, complementing Karen’s densely textured techno with his Drum & Bass-infused Bristolian take on the genre.
The lobby will feature Man Band label head Toma Kami who released on Bristol’s Livity Sound for a second time. The Parisian DJ spent some time in Bristol and displays a clear affinity for the more sparse, percussion and rhythm focussed style of the scene. Super Hexagon and Oscillate Tracks alumni J. Wiltshire will join him earlier with his warm, crystalline and modern version of electro and dubstep.
For a lighter adventure head to ://about blank’s revamped tent where the Smith and Davis Quintet will explore ambient soundscapes all night long with a couple of surprise guests.
As day breaks DJ Fart in the Club will introduce us to her 90s infused bleepy house tunes before Pure Space label head Andy Garvey and avid-digger Lauren Hansom showcase the best of Sydney. As the day draws to a close, Detroit’s FIT Siegel will drench the garden in his dubby house and techno textures.
As always our beloved residents; Modular Gang’s Rachel Lyn and Oscillate co-curator Kate Miller round out the line up with their intimate knowledge of the club and event series.
Fresh fruit and delicious food will be provided as well as a few copies of our latest records.
See you on the dance floor(s)!
