Say Yes and Ghost in the Machine are teamning up once again after collaboration for DJ Rolando China tour last year, this time bringing you a big surprise: BLAWAN, one of the leading lights of the current industrial techno revival, well known for splicing post-dubstep with raw and uncompromising techno, also for his track "Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage"and his remix of the Radiohead track "Bloom". He broke into the Post-dubstep scene back in 2010, dropping numerous hits that would go on to exemplify an era, and earlier this year Blawan finally brought us his much-anticipated new album "Wet Will Always Dry".
BLAWAN has come a long way. He cut his teeth back around 2009 with some releases on on Ben UFO and Peason Sound's Hessle Audio caused a major commotion on bass music dance floors. As well as on prestigious Techno label R&S, making his name known within the Post-dubstep scene, and then went on to surpass the genre and gain the love and support from big time Techno artists like Surgeon and The Black Dog.
His output has become more techno-infused with each new release. And even though he had already locked into a techno groove by 2012, his music kept shape-shifting, exploring both experimental and straight-up pummeling tropes. It was at this time that he increasingly began to collaborate with Surgeon, and separately, with Pariah—with whom he performs under the live improv moniker Karenn. A move to hardware in the studio has led to frequent collaborations with The Analogue Cops and Pariah.
Over the past few years few producers have caused as much commotion as Blawan. His label associations—Hessle Audio, R&S, Clone Basement Series, Hinge Finger—speaks volumes. But it's his percussion that speaks loudest. He's a former drummer, and his intricately programmed tunes seem to bear out this history. Quite simply, he hears things a tad differently than the rest of us.
A world where he's had perhaps his three biggest underground club hits by sampling R&B star Brandy on one cut, "Getting Me Down", also sampling the voice of Moodymann on "What You Do with What You Have", and the unlikely sing-along "Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage." However, his major worldwide breakthrough came when he was the main remixer for Radiohead's remix album! Depeche Mode, Erol Alkan, Simian Mobile Disco and Tiga have also recently fit tunes of his on mix.
According to Philip Sherburne of Pitchfork, his music is "full of jackhammering kicks, splintered wooden percussion, and short-fuse breakdowns." Now he's making his first visit fresh from the release of his first album, Wet Will Always Dry, on his own Ternesc label. See you on November 3rd!
