EXIT proudly announces performances from three techno visionaries - Jeff Mills, Mathew Jonson and Gregor Tresher who will be rocking the medieval walls of Dance Arena. Combined with Pan-Pot and Matador live, this will be a clash between the old and new school of techno.
Jeff Mills, godfather of Detroit techno, founder of legendary Underground Resistance and barer of French title Knight of Arts will be demonstrating his flawless mixing technique in front of 20,000 passengers aboard his techno time machine. Being one of the most productive techno producers, Mills made more than 20 albums and 100 EPs and has taken techno into new dimensions, combining it with philharmonic orchestras and using it as a soundtrack for Fritz Lang's silent movie "Metropolis". He is one of the first DJ's to use three turntable mixing technique, which he has perfected beyond reason, often playing more than 70 records during one hour. His biggest achievement though is constant evolution: "It's not really my nature to look back. Somewhere along my career, I became convinced that there is more value in thinking forward than reminiscing about the past. In this way, I don't expect it to ever truly end. Ever."
Mills will be joined by Mathew Jonson and Gregor Tresher who will be playing their Live shows in front of Dance Arena techno heads. Masters of mood and atmosphere will not settle with anything less than going all out with their firepower. Hard pumping beats will be pulverizing everything that doesn?t move so be prepared to dance your shoes off!
This show wouldn't be complete without rising stars of techno scene, Pan-Pot and Matador, who will also be performing live, making this spectacle a true arena-style battle of old and new school techno wizards. Make sure to be there to find out who the winner is!
