UK-based electronic music crew Free From Sleep host Corsica this weekend for a session of live techno and oddball sounds spread across Rooms 1 & 2 ’til late.
Dark Lord of techno SNTS presents a live-hybrid set, alongside Berlin scene regular Inhalt Der Nacht. Ahead of Saturday Night’s Free From Sleep night, we caught up with young Irish upstarts Niamh and Witch Trials. Niamh is a central part of techno collective MOTZ, while Witch Trials came up through the London-based Ceili collective. Both provided playlists which you can listen to below.
Kalli – The Dream & The Outsider
This is a wonky bleepy broken thing by my dear friend Kalli! I love it, it’s dreamy but also has harsh percussion, doesn’t really fit into a category which is typical of Kalli’s chewwwwns. He’ll be in room 2 with Alar, Angel D’Lite and myself this Saturday yeyeeeeee get in the van.
Special Request – VORTEX 150
ELLLL played this in her Dublin Boiler Room, I had never heard it before until she whacked it out. I’m obsessed with it now, thanks ELLLL xxx
DJ Seduction – Sample Mania
A gas jungly spicey chicken nugget.
Mike Parker – Druma
Flying through outer spaceeeeeeeeee.
Cygnus X The Orange Theme
A classic dinger, don’t care if it’s cliche or whatever lol.
Draag – Ballast
Fully charged in your face power techno.
Ontal – PI02.1 (Orphx Remix)
Amazing dance floor tension.
