The Field
The Field (Axel Willner) creates a loop-based, cottony techno sound that's both minimalist and spacious—and gorgeous to boot, as witnessed most recently on the hot-off-the-presses Cupid's Head, released on Berlin's mighty Kompakt label. The album's as hypnotic as his previous work, but perhaps a bit meaner and leaner—which bodes well for this Fixed birthday bash, where Willner will perform live with his band. Fixed's own JDH and Dave P supply the pre- and postset deck sessions.
