South London Ordnance is best known for delivering his own signature brand of upfront techno business behind the decks. All killer, no filler. Now, as luck would have it, you can hear him for yourself straight from week eight at Richie Hawtin’s summer-long ENTER.Ibiza residency at Space. Last week Thursday, August 21st, the UK-based DJ producer manhandled the Terrace stage with a tight two-hour mix alongside night headliners Dubfire, Maceo Plex, Claude vonStroke, and more.
Turtle from Entourage would definitely be feeling this guy and UK-based tastemaker Gilles Peterson is a fan. Californian rapper and producer, Stones Throw signee artist Jonwayne (born Jon Wayne) will be laying down his razor-sharp wordsmith skills and tight beats at LA’s bastion of soulful, experimental music Low End Theory located in Lincoln Heights alongside Elusive and Lana Shea. As always, LET residents will also be on-hand in support including event founder and Alpha Pup boss Daddy Kev, Nobody, D-Styles, and Nocando.
Skrillex knows how to bang out a great live show and deliver the goods for his global legions of fans. Case in point, is his latest Mothership tour that landed back in June at Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Definitely an insane spectacle and you can catch the second night’s show in its entirety.
Claude vonStroke. Dixon. And Richie Hawtin. All on the same bill. Even for ENTER.Ibiza, week nine at Space promises to be an embarrassment of musical riches. On Thursday, August 28th, the Minus man will be joined by Berlin-based Innervisions boss Dixon on the Terrace all night long. Elsewhere that night, Dirtybird honcho Claude vonStroke brings the tech bootie grooves to the Sake bar, as well as special guests Paco Osuna, Jon Gaiser, and resident Bella Sarris throughout the night.
