Face to Face Showcase
Berlin Incoming! Rising label, Face To Face, takes the controls at WERD this week, administering a healthy injection of Techno to properly kick off our first party of 2016. Expat artists Lando, along with label-mate Jamaica Suk, return to the city by the Bay to shake the rafters at Monarch. We’re stoked to welcome back Lando, whose homage to classic House and Detroit influences can also be found within the catalogues of Hotflush and Rush Hour. After relocating to Berlin he’s spent half of the past decade practicing magic in the studio and then taking it to the decks.
With a string of hot releases, including Jamaica Suk’s recent ‘Trusst’ EP, Face To Face journeys further, creating unique and precise productions, firmly planting itself in Berlin and gaining nods throughout the wider dance music community.
Label boss, Tim Xavier, has been pushing his own style of Techno and Minimal for over a decade, with releases on the likes of Minus, Wagon Repair and now his own imprint. A collection of sounds resonant of these tastes and reflective of its artist roster is helping shape Face To Face as they evolve. We’re really looking forward to Jamaica and Lando holding it down and hope to see you Werdos out there.
