Japanese-born, Berlin-based techno DJ HITO is set to curated a new event series at IPSE in Berlin later this month, kicking off on 31st August and cryptically titled OTO.
OTO — which is Japanese for 'sound' — will see HITO joined by a slew of established and up-and-coming guests who hail from Germany, Japan and across the globe, with a focus on pure and organic-sounding techno sonics.
FROM: JAPAN VIA BERLIN
SOUNDS LIKE: RICHIE HAWTIN, MARCO CAROLA, DUBFIRE
If there’s one thing Japanese DJ Hito knows — it’s Sake. It was her love of the traditional rice wine that cemented her relationship with techno don Richie Hawtin, alongside her outstanding DJ skills and formidable record collection, and has seen her spin with Hawtin at his famed ENTER. parties since 2012.
Night Tales has announced full details for its London summer series, which opens every Friday and Saturday from 24th June, with a closing party on Sunday 28th August.
Music takeovers from Dimensions, Electric Miles, Future Disco and Juicebox all head to Night Tales’ new location, which is at an old stone merchant and car scrap yard on Hepscott Street in Hackney Wick.
The 10-week celebration includes Dimensions Soundsystem, Stephane Ghenacia, Eddie Richards, Jef K and Hito all on deck, as well Richie Hawtin’s first ever pop-up sake bar in London, Tales of ENTER.sake.
With a regular spot in our DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs poll, it’s no wonder Brooklyn’s favorite techno outpost, Output, clinched out a Best Of North America win. As one reader commented, “The sound system is hands down one of the best in the five boroughs.” Having spent more than one night immersed inside its Funktion One laden walls, we are hard-pressed to disagree. The 12,000-square-foot venue is a converted warehouse, with unvarnished concrete and exposed steel beams lending a vibe that suits its regular line-ups – think residents like Horse Meat Disco, Bonobo and Seth Troxler.
