台湾を拠点にテクノの未踏領域を探求するパーティとして国際的な評価を獲得するまでに成長したSmoke Machineが、台北で始動してから10年の節目を祝うべく、アジアとアメリカでアニバーサリーイベントを決行! ここ東京ではContactを舞台に見逃せない一夜を作り上げる。
Studio Xフロアで魅惑の空間を作り上げるスペシャルゲストは、Joel MullとWata Igarashiだ。90年代中盤に〈Primevel〉や〈H. Productions〉といった重要レーベルから登場し、〈Drumcode〉や〈Cocoon〉などの名門レーベルからも頻繁にリリースを重ねるなど、テクノシーンで唯一無二の存在感を放ってきたJoel Mull。対するWata IgarashiのキャリアはJoel Mullよりも短いものの、その勢いは一切劣ることなく〈The Bunker New York〉〈Bitta〉〈Midgar〉などからハイペースで作品を世に送り出している。この両DJがレジデントのDiskonnectedとともに、Smoke Machineの深層に向かって意識をねじまげるサウンドジャーニーを繰り広げる予定だ。
さらにContactフロアでは、台北のもうひとつの名パーティBass Kitchenが同じく10周年を記念して祝砲を打ち上げる。レジデントのYoshi Noriを筆頭に斬新で発展的な4つ打ちのダンスミュージックに注力してきたBass Kitchenでは、よりハウスにフォーカスしたサウンドに期待したい。〈Lobster Theremin〉のManuel Fisherと、〈Ostgut-Ton〉や〈Endless Flight〉のリリースで躍進中のGonnoをゲストに迎え、お祝いムードに沸く一夜をさらに盛り上げる。

「Toasting a decade of immersive techno exploration」

From its roots in Taiwan, Smoke Machine has grown to become a truly international force exploring the outer limits of techno music. Celebrating 10 years since they first launched in Taipei, the Smoke Machine team are throwing celebratory events across Asia and the US, including an unmissable date at Contact.
The Studio X floor will be falling under the spell of special guests Joel Mull and Wata Igarashi. Mull has been a singular protagonist in the techno world since starting out in the mid 90s, initially appearing on seminal labels like Primevil and H. Productions and going on to appear frequently on such high profile institutions as Drumcode and Cocoon. Igarashi’s own path has been more recent but no less prolific – over the past decade he’s notched up countless releases on The Bunker New York, Bitta and Midgar. Both DJs will be joined by core resident Diskonnected for a head-twisting journey into the heart of the Smoke Machine sound.
To add to the festive atmosphere, the Contact floor will be reverberating to the 10th anniversary celebrations of another Taipei institution, Bass Kitchen. Equally committed to fresh and meaningful sounds within the 4/4 sphere, you can expect to hear a more house-oriented slant when resident DJ Yoshi Nori is joined by Manuel Fischer (Lobster Theremin) and Gonno (Ostgut-Ton, Endless Flight).
