Svreca
August 4
Anti stage
Svreca is Spanish techno's most recent celebrated son. As a DJ, producer and label boss he constantly updates his vision for the genre, and it is one where no compromises are made and the focus is firmly on getting into your mind rather than your body. Both his own techno and the stuff he releases on his own Semantica label from the likes of Surgeon, Silent Servant and Abdulla Rashim is truly textured and experimental, abstract but inviting stuff that makes for a cerebral listening experiences. His DJ sets, too, are brave and forward looking things that pay little heed to current trends, and instead remain resolutely inventive from start to finish.
