The Local Group returns to Mây on Saturday July 28th, almost exactly a year from our first appearance at the venue. This time we are presenting WAVEFORM, a mature night night of techno featuring special guest MARIVS along with Local Group members Mike Soos (as PALINDRUM) and ANOMALY.
WAVEFORM will explore subtle techno soundscapes, mutating over the course of the night, punctuated by projections that fuse the sound with unique visuals for an immersive dancefloor experience.
19+, licensed. $5 before/$10 after midnight.
Cafe, 876 Dundas St W. http://maytoronto.com
*** PALINDRUM (Live)
Local Group member Mike Soos began DJing/producing in a duo called Darkworks. Late nights and early mornings spent with friends in Detroit/Windsor shaped Mike's productions and DJ style. Hypnotic loops and driving, dark rhythms define Mike's latest work to be presented in a new live set format known as Palindrum.
*** MARIVS (Kaleidoscope, Toronto Goes Techno)
Marivs started DJing about 20 years ago in Romania. Now relocated in Toronto, he continues to DJ and also produce his own sound waves. The words to describe his style are intricate and textured rhythms, hard or deep, enveloped in a hypnotic veil.
*** ANOMALY (Totally Spun, IOU Beats)
Local Group member Anomaly (Paul) got started DJing in Kingston during the mid-1990s, first on community radio and then branching out to clubs and underground parties. Having played many disparate genres over the years, he now mainly plays dark, melodic techno with hints of his industrial and psychedelic roots.
