Is it possible to head to ADE and not either stroll past Dave Clarke, or see him bang out plenty of the good stuff during the weeks visit? No, it’s 100% not possible.
The Baron of techno returns to ADE 2018 with the 14th edition of his legendary Dave Clarke Presents night at Melkweg, and he’s complied a mighty fine line-up for this years edition, see the event page here.
Dave Clarke presents: Sam Paganini / Rebekah / Octave One (live) / Marcel Fengler / Mark Broom / Anetha / B.Traits / Estroe / Mr. Jones
Headlining this edition of Dave Clarke Presents is Sam Paganini, who built his name in the underground circuit and will be bringing his powerful grooves to the Melkweg dancefloor. Then there’s the return of the infamous techno queen Rebekah. Known for her dark and relentless style she brings havoc all around the globe with faster and harder sounds. Fans of the Detroit techno sound will be happy to see the return of Octave One, who will once again bring their amazing set of hardware to the Melkweg for another high energy performance. Also returning artist is crowd favorite and Berlin legend Marcel Fengler. Notorious for his dynamic marathon sets it’s obvious he really knows his craft. Then there’s the British techno veteran Mark Broom. Mark has had a string of high-class releases over the last 12 months and collaborated with artists like Gary Back and James Ruskin.
Anetha (whom Dave was very impressed with at a recent Amsterdam Boiler Room set) and B.Traits (whom Dave considers to be an important techno ambassador on BBC Radio 1) will make their debut at Clarke’s legendary night. Both are inspired by the new wave of electronic music. Anetha is a prominent figure in the Paris underground scene and B.Traits is known for showcasing the best of dark house and techno on her label In Toto and BBC radio show. The line-up is completed by Dutch techno veteran Estroe and Clarke’s studio buddy Mr. Jones.
