Last weekend at London's mega-venue Printworks, legendary DJ and producer Maceo Plex returned to the reincarnated factory to deliver an all consuming follow up to his 2017 Printworks Mosaic party.
With his ability to curate line ups like no other, Maceo Plex (real name Eric Estornel) invited down a string of electro and techno heavyweights to provide 11 hours of pumping music through the Press Halls and in the smaller but no less impressive Dark Room. Boasting space for 4000 ravers with stunning new lights and visuals, the entire sound system has also seen an upgraded for the autumn winter series with a new Audiotechnik J and V series PA.
From the moment the press halls opened their doors, the main room was taken over by rising Irish duo Brame & Hamo. Followed by stellar sets from Steve Rachmad, the energetic american Silent Servant, techno queen Ellen Allien and a standout performance from german techno mainstay Len Faki, the main room saw perhaps one of the best techno takeovers since it's beginnings. Maceo Plex's closing set saw expertly teamed visuals and track selection for a finish to remember.
In the smaller Dark Room, D-Knox warmed up the party with his signature funk-laden techno setting the precedent for the acts to follow. French Berghain regular Jennifer Cardini stepped up to the decks for the penultimate performance of the evening, showcasing disco and house infused techno to a packed out dance floor. The most highly anticipated event of the night though, which saw a b2b between Americans Danny Daze and Anthony Parasole, did not disappoint. Highly charged and performed truly with the crowd in mind the two DJs expertly controlled the Dark Room, keeping the dance floor stomping to what was one of the best back to back sets I've seen perhaps this year.
