Monolake live at Frigid, Sunday Feb 12 – Free


This Sunday we have German techno pioneer Monolake performing live at our Sydney club night Frigid.

Absolutely free.

Robert Henke aka Monolake has been making some of the most immersive and widescreen dub techno for over a decade. From his early releases on the seminal Berlin Chain Reaction label in the mid 90s to his current 8 speaker projects for his own Imbalance label, he has been a pioneer of sound and technology. Henke has also made major contributions to the music community through his equally important work as the creative developer behind the Ableton Live software which has become the default performance tool for electronic musicians.

Monolake’s live set on Sunday will be on a deep, experimental tip, compared to his more dancefloor-oriented performance elsewhere on the weekend.

Ron Schepper from Textura, who also writes for our magazine Cyclic Defrost, has a great interview with Henke.

Supporting Monolake are Prince V and his bottomless crate of dub, and Sub Bass Snarl who promise to do a ‘proper’ set of minimal electronics, drone and deep submarine bass – its been a while.
