The minimal techno artist is headlining the house & techno mini-fest
Coming up this month is the third bi-annual instalment of Bigfoot’s Tea Party’s very own warehouse party that isn’t a warehouse party. ‘It’s more like a mini-festival,’ corrects promoter George Russell, who also provides visuals for the event under the name Redux. ‘Most of it is outside in the open air, we’re going to have a barbecue and a gazebo. The warehouse is for later on.’
The venue, mysteriously referred to only by its address, is actually the old Tall Ship Museum, the original having been incorporated into the Riverside Museum along the Clyde. ‘It’s quite secluded,’ says Russell. ‘It’s got a bar which we use, but most of the event is outside in a kind of courtyard, you can see the Science Centre, the Tall Ship, SWG3, it’s right across the motorway from SWG3, so you can get there really easily.’
Performing special guest duties on the night will be Glasgow’s own Esa, who’s been in the public eye of late as percussionist for Glasgow Afro-house duo Auntie Flo, and a very special set from Richie Hawtin’s M_nus signee Ambivalent, aka Washington DC’s Kevin McHugh, for a set of minimal techno meets acid house. There will also be an afterparty in a secret location with transport provided, which will also be a very special launch party for Ambivalent’s new and first ever mix CD on M_nus offshoot M_nus12 alongside another label guest, which Russell rightly describes as ‘a very big deal for us.’
