For our 2nd event we are really excited to bring to Manchester for the first time Tinfoil — Sunil Sharpe & DeFeKT!
The duo formed in 2014 and have released four soon to be five EPs on their self-titled label. Their live act brings something entirely original to the table with live vocals and raw analogue sounds.
Sunil Sharpe is a shining light in the resurgence of underground techno. Gaining an enviable reputation for his dj sets in the early '00s, Sunil soon received an invitation to play at Berlin's Tresor Club in 2001, marking the start of an intensive involvement in the techno scene. Whilst being a uniquely talented dj (and longtime dj tutor at a thirdlevel college), Sunil also produces various strains of techno that have appeared on labels symbolic of the genre's rougher edge: Black Sun Records, Komisch, Inner Surface, Trensmat, Violet Poison and most notably Blawan & Pariah's Sheworks.
DeFeKT(aka Matthew Flanagan) has been a tireless advocate of true electro and techno over the last number of years, steadily honing his hardware based sound that has earned him admirers all through the electronic music community. DeFeKT released a 8 track mini album in 2010 which gained great support from Dave Clarke. Since then a slew of 12" Eps and remix's have emerged under the DeFeKT and ESS guise on labels like Combat recordings, Solar One Music, AC Records, Cultivated electronics, shameless toady, Signal Code,Komisch and Electronic Explorations to name a few. His eager abuse of analog drum machines and modular synths is a breath of fresh air in today’s laptop dominated scene.
