Kollektiv presents....Fabrizio Maurizi: Preview
We often wonder whether the recent surge of new tech nights in Glasgow feel somewhat overshadowed by the city's impressive heritage. You could most definitely argue that the likes of Pressure, Subculture, Sensu & Monox have had the market cornered for most of the last 15 years. Glasgow is a city that was built on techno and the promoters that built it did a damn good job. But recently there has been a new wave of young, enthusiastic party-starters who are looking to make their own contribution to city's deep and driving culture. Nomad Nights, Tic Tac Toe and Sunday Circus have all really excelled over the last few years, while Glasgow's newest tech night, Kollektiv have been making quality bookings which are perhaps overlooked by the larger clubs.
And it's Kollektiv who bring Fabrizio Maurizi to Glasgow this weekend. The Italian stallion who comfortably resides as part of Richie Hawtin's Minus family is someone who has a deep, almost spiritual relationship with his dancefloor and likes to explore every direction of this sometimes quite uncompromising genre. Growing up with a keen eye on Detroit Techno and ever present on his native Bologna's illegal rave scene, Fabrizio was finally convinced of his path after seeing Hawtin play for the first time.
Fabrizio Maurizi: Deep
Inspired by Hawtin's masterful techniques Fabrizio quickly began producing his own music, obsessed with low frequencies and deepening basslines. Breakout single 'Hasta La Baldoria Siempre', released on his own Memento label is a hypnotic and unilaterally dark example of his feverishly addictive sound. Burrowing deep into the brain, it's a rhythm which simply can't be ignored and what you can expect from his finely crafted DJ sets.
With the Art School's vast assembly hall playing host to his exceptionally unique brand of minimal madness we suspect there will be more than a few freak-out's on the floor - whether these will be self-induced or all part of Fabrizio's plan remains to be seen.
