Long before the likes of hypemachine and bit torrent put every piece of music ever released at the fingertips of the public, good old fashioned radio was the conduit through which most of us received our education from musical mavens like John Peel. Transmitting through the night, specialist shows and pirate radio stations were a lifeline for those growing up in the suburbs and an entire blank cassette industry was kept afloat by teenagers hovering over the record button on their battered tape players.
If you had any interest in techno, ambient or electronica in the early to mid nineties and lived in London the chances are that you would have been setting aside Tuesday and Thursday nights to lock into the sounds coming out of Kiss FM when DJs Colin Faver and Colin Dale took to the airwaves. For two hours each night some of the most futuristic, exciting and out there music being made at the time by producers from all over the world was beamed into the bedrooms of the capital, entertaining and educating in equal measure.
Fast forward over a decade and fashions and music styles may have changed but the sounds that these two legends introduced a generation to still sound as fresh as ever and now for the first time in over five years these two titans of techno are back playing together for one very special night. Brought to you by Uncharted Audio and Don’t Fake The Funk, Future Shock is a celebration of techno and clubbing, held at the wonderful Corsica Studios, one of the few venues left in London with the barely legal vibe that all the best parties had back in the day combined with a cutting edge soundsystem and facilities. With a line-up that matches some of the most important names in British techno history with some of today’s freshest talents, Future Shock is the perfect start to the long bank Easter weekend.
In the main room we have the frankly unassailable combination of Dale and Faver, playing everything from the original Detroit jams of the eighties to the very latest techno cuts, joining them are Uncharted Audio boss Kone-R and producer/promoter DJ SP and EG689. Whilst in the back room, we take our foot off the pedal, take the bpms all the way down and dig out the beanbags and sofas as we create that all too rare thing these days, a proper chill out room. And who better to take control of the decks than possibly the most chilled DJ on the planet, Mixmaster Morris, who will be joined by electronica sensations Digitonal & Posthuman and on vinyl and samplers John Power.
Finally, if you’re in Shepherds Bush this Saturday the 15th, come down to Ginglik:

Fresh from his speaker-bursting appearance on our signals series, we welcome Neilon Pitamber aka Dub Kult, for his second appearance at Ginglik, this time dropping a special audio visual combo set.
