Daniel Avery Boiler Room x Dekmantel Festival DJ Set

Headway and Reading Rooms Productions are excited to welcome back Daniel Avery! It will be nearly 2 years since he blew us away with what we can only describe as a masterclass, when Daniel played all night long at his last trip to the Reading Rooms. We're especially buzzing then that Daniel Avery has agreed once again to play all night long for your listening pleasure, and if you were lucky enough to get a ticket last time before it sold out, you'll know how good this is going to be so don't miss it!

"Electronic music is unique in that, whilst it has an immediate effect on the body, the culture surrounding it has the ability to run deep into your life. Whenever I’m in a club, I want to give myself up to music. This is the very thing that excites me the most. Witnessing a DJ create an atmosphere in a room from the ground up takes patience and effort from everyone present but when the pivotal moments hit, your watch stops ticking.” It is this thinking which motivated and inspired the making of Daniel Avery’s entry into the treasured DJ-Kicks series. Across its 78 minutes the mix creates a hypnotic space focusing on “music by some like-minded souls” from the outer reaches of techno. It is a mix concerned with the idea of taking a collective breath and allowing records their own space.

“The music that always hits hardest is what I’d consider to be unreal, something that sounds like it comes from another place entirely and moves at its own pace. I want to create those moments where opening your eyes on a dance floor becomes difficult. When the outside world is nothing more than a distant thought.” The mix also features three new original Avery productions including a track from Rote, a project with BleeD boss Volte-Face. It follows three years’ worth of studio experimentation in-between a life spent on the road touring the enormous success of debut record, Drone Logic. Released on Erol Alkan's wildly psychedelic Phantasy label, reviews were unanimous in praise: "A mesmerising debut" (Mixmag); "In a league of its own" (NME); "Exceptional" (The Times); "One of the finest techno albums of the year" (The Quietus); "Underground dance music with this much ambition hasn't been heard in quite a while" (Resident Advisor); "Avery owns this space" (Pitchfork); "A benchmark for so many other dance albums to aspire to" (Dummy).
