Subversive Presents: Mike Parker!

On Saturday May 26, 2012
Subversive is proud to bring Mike Parker to Vancouver!

Do. Not. Miss!
deep in the underground… in the cavernous basement of the old Woodward’s department store…the sounds of dark, groovy, ethereal techno will boom, rattle, and pulse as Subversive and W2 bring you a night of incomparable music, and vibes.

MIKE PARKER (Geophone, Dozzy Records, Labyrinth)

Self proclaimed noise maker, artist, fine arts university prof, and first and foremost electronic music producer, Mike Parker has cultivated one of the most distinguishable sounds in techno to date.

Parker combines his quiet obsession with analogue experimentation, fascination of ring modulators and love of the atonal and dissonant, to create a signature and patented sound often recognisable from the first bar. Over the years, his education in the visual arts has had a profound impact on the music he produces. His production style is as uncompromising as his dj sets are powerful: a track is rehearsed many times, then recorded live on mostly analogue gear with no edits or overdubbing later. His dj sets have the same spontaneous bite. Recent releases include a remix of classic Aubrey for MOWAR and a track on SPECTRAL SOUND, also included on Ryan Elliot’s recent “Document’ compilation.

Working from the relative obscurity of his Buffalo, New York Studio… Mike Parker’s incredible skills and unique take on the techno genre have NOT gone unnoticed… from Japan to Europe… techno afficianado’s ears have been perking up at his distinctive sound. This spring alone has seen him grace the decks of such legendary clubs as Le Batofar (Paris) Moog (Barcelona) and Berghain (Berlin)

The Subversive Crew is STOKED for this event and KNOW you will love the sounds of Mike Parker!

LYNDSY BROW (A.K.A. Miss Myte) (Subversive, Aspect Media)

Miss Myte has become a name synonymous with quality underground house and techno. Playing in clubs, outdoor festivals, and intimate after-hour parties over the last 7 years, she has had the honour of sharing the stage with the likes of M.A.N.D.Y., Miss Kittin & the Hacker, Alex Smoke, John Tejada, Tyler Stadius, Jay Tripwire, Adam Marshall, J. Hunsberger and DVS1. We love what (and how) Lyndsy plays music… we bet your feet and booty will too!

AUSTIN PHILLIPS (Subversive, Deep UnderG)

The audible emotion that Austin creates behind the decks and the clever creations he devises in his studio reflect his inner musical guru. Setting the soundscape of many of Subversive’s events…playing alongside such greats as DVS1, Peter Van Hoesen, and Eddie Richards… Vancouver’s underground has come to love Austin… because… well… Austin knows his shit! If you do too… and love to dance.. you must check! ; )

CALEB FOX (Subversive, Black Knights)

Caleb Fox plays dope music. You may have been lucky enough to catch him behind the decks deep in the Vancouver underground. If so, you will have heard his mad skillz and exquisite selections. If not… this is your chance! Come early. Have a beverage, and dance like you own the floor!

Darby’s turbo-charged sound system will be in full effect and Miles will be at the controls of his crazy laser…projection art by Sebnem Ozpeta will light up the room in mind bending ways, and with this amazing DJ line-up… the music will blow your mind and move your body!
