Saturday 19th January - Machine & Translate present - KEN ISHII (70 Drums, Exceptional, JP)
Machine enters 2019 with a January show for the first time in 4 years. Continuing the bi-monthly cycle, we’ll be landing events in January, March, May, July, September and November 2019. Saturday, January 21st is a team up with Translate to bring you Japanese techno icon KEN ISHI !!!!
Ken Ishii debuted on the legendary Belgian techno label R&S Records in 1993. Since then he has gone on to incredible feats of worldwide recognition and accomplishment across multiple mediums and media encompassing film, video, gaming, theatre design, multiple awards for magazines including best techno dj for NME and Mixmag, designing sound systems and even producing music for the Winter Olympics at Nagano. His list of accomplishments is exhaustive and, frankly exhausting to read, so we’ve chopped it. The important thing is his rich and enduring influence on electronic music and his place in the interplanetary techno-sphere of everlasting achievements. You’d have to be living under a rock to have avoided the name Ken Ishi and we’re incredibly honoured to be hosting him at this Machine team up with Translate.

MACHINE is a techno club with the vibe of an arts precinct. Run by electronic music veterans Andrew Till and Simon Slieker, the club attracts quality artists from around the country and the world. Spread over two levels each with topflight Function One sound systems and an enormous open garden area, there is always differentiation between cold and hot, hard and soft, dark and light, dry and wet, distinct and indistinct; Machine exists in this duality and celebrates the diversity it affords: old and young, queer and not, gendered and not, clear and murky. We invite you into the mix for the nighttime adventures to come.
