A mighty, mighty line-up for Corsica Studios on November 2nd

Some of our favourite promoters in the capital are again teaming up for an absolute scorcher of a night on November 2nd. The line-up for Plex, Colony and Machine's PCM Part II at Corsica Studios pretty much reads like it was scraped out of the inside of the Quietus office's collective skull, with a host of the best, most visceral and most forward thinking techno (and related) artists taking over the venue for the night.

Among them are Ancient Methods and their sister project Ugandan Methods. The latter also feature Downwards boss, Sandwell District member and UK techno legend Regis, who is also playing separately. Senking, who has recently released through Berlin institution Raster Noton, is present, as is Millie, aka Miles Whittaker from Demdike Stare, whose DJ sets are known for their virtuosic blending of genres. Phase, a regular at Colony nights is on the bill, as is long-running British techno producer/DJ Kirk Digiorgio.

A number of former dubstep experimenters are also present on the bill: Untold, who is now making slippery, post-punkish techno, alongside fellow dubstep evacuees Livity Sound - aka Kowton, Peverelist and Asusu - whose live set sinks house and techno structures deep into the recesses of dub's echo chamber. Also on the line-up is Dave Huismans (pictured) as 2562. Also known for his work as A Made Up Sound, his more recent material has seen him develop a distinctive, wired and broken take on techno. We're also promised special guests, alongside Simon Heartfield, Tengui, Luke Handsfree, MB, CB and James Tec.

'But where can I get tickets for such a pleasant-looking evening?', we hear you enquire. After which we direct you here, for tickets and more information.
