Competition: Subculture Presents Henrik Schwarz (Live)
COMPETITION: Subculture Presents Henrik Schwarz (Live)
2012 could well be the Sub Club’s biggest year to date. Celebrating its 25th anniversary with a month of special parties back in April was seemingly just the beginning, as promoters from across the board continue to showcase some of the most essential bookings the club has ever seen. This can be no truer than with long-running Saturday night residency Subculture. Following on from massive events with Todd Terje, Jeff Mills and Carl Craig, Harri & Domenic’s long-running weekly is now preparing for one of their biggest months to date, with Lil Louis, Kink and this weekend’s must see, Henrik Schwarz.
Perhaps one of Germany’s most prolific exports, it would be entirely appropriate to describe Henrik as an unsung hero in dance music’s ever developing relationship with technology. After taking up DJ’ing in the early 90s and mastering an enviable talent of cross-genre mixing, he soon became fascinated with computer production, using drum machines and synths before buying his first laptop in 1998. Taking bold steps to integrate it with his DJ’ing, he was quick to realise the possibilities that would become available through advancing software and set about establishing his now extraordinary live show.
With his first foray into production as early as 1992, it’s perhaps no surprise that he’s remixed everyone from Michael Jackson to Stevie Wonder, providing a club-worthy edge for some of the world’s biggest stars, but it’s of course his releases such as the incredible ‘Where We At’ on Innervisions and an utterly mesmerising DJ-Kicks mix which have made him one of electronic music’s leading lights. Bringing his live show to Subculture this Saturday, you can expect to be fully blown away as he creates a spontaneous dancefloor experience which is truly unique.
