The Birkenhead and Liverpool dance music powerhouses have joined forces to bring Belgian tour de force, Amelie Lens, to the North West. The Waveform Transmitter’s Ste Knight waits with bated breath.
If there is any musical form capable of parting water, it is techno. This is evident by the very fact that Birkenhead promoters, Av.Verde, and Liverpool promoters, Freeze, have completely emptied the Mersey estuary and met in the middle, to bring one of the most exciting bookings the north west a has seen for some time.
On 9th September, Birkenhead Priory, or rather the remains of the 10th century building, play host to one of techno’s fastest rising stars; Belgium’s Amelie Lens.
If you’re not familiar with Lens‘ driving form of techno, then you really need to get yourself acquainted. Only once you’ve given yourself a good slap, though. She has aimed herself keenly for the top of her game and it would seem that her aim is pretty true, as she continues to blow minds out of the backs of heads wherever she plays.
Her recent killer set at Tomorrowland, on Adam Beyer‘s Drumcode stage would satisfy even the most demanding of techno fans, as would her recent appearance for France’s underground electronic music radio station, Cercle. One of Lens‘ tracks, Exhale, was featured on Technasia‘s brilliant 2016 Faze mix. Quite the affirmation.
Amelie‘s sudden rise to fame on techno‘s underground may have been meteoric, but it is not unfounded. She knows how to work a set and, more importantly, a crowd. If her DJing doesn’t make you howl like a primate then we’re sorry, but you are already dead inside. Don’t believe us? Then check out a clip of her performance at Tomorrowland, below.
Tickets available from Skiddle on Friday, 28th July. First 100 will be at a reduced price. Get in there quick, this WILL sell out.
