Here are some of our favorite techno warriors to keep an eye out for this weekend:
Pan-Pot’s uncompromising Berlin-style opens awe-inspiring acoustic spaces, fueled by rocking sequences, darkly euphoric synths, and cascades of white noise. Since their Time Warp debut in 2012, they have been family members and companions, ready to twist our festival crowd into rapturous fits with their colossal, haunting techno. Each year we have experienced Pan-Pot touching the writhing, euphoric, dancing seas of bodies at Time Warp – if you have not had the pleasure of experiencing them yet, put them on the top of your to-see list.
She might be techno’s most divisive figure. A truly independent and musically fearless artist, her sets stand out from other DJs’ slickly synchronized, clinically pristine beats. Nina’s style is unkempt, hard to define, yet never dull. Her sets are played fast and loose with the “ghetto house”, old-school hardcore, footwork, trance, drum’n’bass and her favorite genre, acid.
