STUDIO: Large Marge: Rachel Noon / Mohajer / Nick Bazzano

Madrid’s Regal makes another stop at the club. Whether releasing on top shelf labels like BPitch Control or for his own immaculate Involve Records, Regal has become a favorite for his unstoppable, perfectly tuned techno. No fuss and no filler, Regal’s music gets the job done with a unique touch. His work always hits hard yet is never overbearing, maintaining a lean muscularity that impacts with precise efficiency. Philippa Pacho and Blue Hour meet up for a b2b. It’s an inspired pairing: both draw from different corners of the ‘90s, drawing from that eternal well of inspiration to launch into their own, unique expression. Pacho channels the incendiary spirit of Jeff Mills, with the astringent funk and unflinching energy, tinged with cosmic awe but tempered by concrete. Blue Hour, on the other hand, evokes the dawning rush of hope and impossible beauty captured by early rave tracks. Despite these artistic touchstones, neither artist can be described as a throwback - their work remains utterly fresh. LISAS brings a riotous intensity to the booth. Her sound can land anywhere from severe EBM to fizzy, frenzied high speed techno, with huge bursts of color. She returns to the club following a set at BOUND: Blackout.

Rachel Noon comes home from Berlin to bring Large Marge to STUDIO. With a growing international reputation, the last few years have seen her go from strength to strength: Unter Resident, event organizer, Fast Forward Productions artist, with appearances across Europe and the US. As a DJ, she’s a force to be reckoned with. Her sets are invariably throwdowns, alive with defiant energy and a huge mood. Now she curates a night at STUDIO, appearing alongside Mohajer. A fellow Fast Forward artist, Mohajer has been helping to galvanize Berlin’s with her queer and BIPoC-focused party MP3. Her sets are filled with tightly coiled bangers and pristinely tweaked sonics. Between her and Noon’s sets, the room will be heaving. Pure Immanence’s Nick Bazzano completes the lineup. He’s a longtime compatriot of Noon’s; rooted in the cerebral, austere and psychedelic, his sets are nuanced, beautiful and darkly alluring.
