Insect like Cristian Vogel, one of the heavyweights of the UK Bleep and Bass dance scene is visiting New Zealand, Australia and Japan February '98... The first major dance event of '98, The Visit will be starting the year with a Bang!
We're flying Cristian Vogel through NZ and Australia, Then He's off to Japan for more gigs and some recording (he's producing a japanese indie band of all things!)
The Wellington gig will be a bit of an epic... a sense a hybrid between sweaty clubland and one of the larger warehouse style's...
The music will be spread across 3 rooms, one with the new traditionalism of Cristians techno, the live works of LRS and Polarity, and the best of the upcoming tech djs in welly... upstairs will be a cross section of welly's future steppers (including a live set by 50Hz), While the very refined Matterhorn will be providing shooters and a bit of a beautific chill space...
In Auckland, LRS and Agent99 are making their way up to support Cristian alongside locals Mechanism, Clone and Matrix at Herzog...SciFi house comes to Auckland...
Over an extended three hour set Cristian Vogel will pull you through his blender of wild vinyl cuts and mix desk slices... A perfect combination of fun and intensity... a madcap whirlwind of booming bouncing sonics and exhilarating looped rhythms...
The Visit will be the biggest headrush you ever experience!
Forget you preconceptions of what you think techno is...The Visit will take your definition of dance music and turn it on it's head!
