The In:Motion series is back.
This 5 month run of events delivers a constant string of sublime line-ups, which run every weekend from September through to January. Bristol's biggest nightclub Motion, of course being the home on In:Motion, possesses a strength in providing for all genres, though predominantly Drum & Bass, Tech House & Techno.
The opening party always produces huge names to kick off the music scene in Bristol.
This year is no different.
Commencing on the Friday, The Martinez Brothers will headline this tech inducing night.
The two brothers from the Bronx are definite leaders within the global house and tech-house scene, constantly delivering fresh tracks to entertain their huge following around the world.
A huge buzz.
Jackmaster is also a large name who has risen to the top and is potentially one of the most exciting and enticing selectors.
His popularity has risen tremendously over the past couple of years.
He certainly could be controlling the main room with style.
That being said, he is far from being a personal favourite for me.
I’ve seen Jackmaster not once but twice in the past few months and neither set was fantastic.
In fact, he was rather boring.
I hope my opinion is proved wrong at the In:Motion Opening Party.
Andrea Oliva will complement The Martinez Brothers quirky eclecticism with some more savoury tech-house.
Oliva has had a busy couple of years, releasing music all over the place including on Relief, Kaluki and Snatch record labels.
Being involved with the hugely popular Elrow event set up as well, he will bring Motion to life.
I will certainly be heading over to the Warehouse at points, where two young dynamic names stand out on the line up.
Kim Ann Foxman possesses an effortlessly edgy style, which is reflected, in her music.
Sets often include extremely rare records, manifesting a mellifluous journey for both the audience and herself.
Make sure to see Kim bring a taste of her NY underground house.
The other name is the Berlin based Korean artist, Peggy Gou.
With sets of dark house and techno being brandished around the globe, her set at The Island a few months ago in Bristol was massive.
Please take some time to see her work her magic in the Warehouse.
For your sake.
All in all a huge opening night to be had for In:Motion.
Bring on September.
