Mekanik presents Black Strobe (Arnaud Rebotini DJ Set) at Liquid Lounge in Glasgow 10th Feb 2006
This was Mekanik's first event of 2006, and indeed the first night they'd staged since their move from The Arches to the Liquid Lounge. Special guest was Arnaud Rebotini of Black Strobe. Rebotini's sidekick in Black Strobe is none other than Ivan Smagghe, so there was no doubt in my mind that we were in for a quality night of music.
The night kicked off with Glasgow's very own Rogue Audio, DJ duo Paul Gordon and Russell Ventilla. This was a tight warm-up set of dark tech and minimal house, with a sprinkling of breaks for good measure.
The club was filling up nicely now and next up was Mekanik resident Richie Mobbs, spinning some more up tempo tech house that had the dance floor rocking.
It was a daunting prospect for Richie Mobbs and Rogue Audio to play before the highly musical and technical talent that is Arnaud Rebotini. However they had acquitted themselves well and so Rebotini took to the decks to an already high octane crowd.
As expected, Rebotini delivered a technically flawless set that didn't take too much notice of the genre boundaries within electronic and house music, although it's fair to say that the emphasis was on the darker side :). However the changes between styles were always subtle, resulting in a set that flowed seamlessly. DJpromoter.com would also like to tip the hat in the direction of Rebotini for his previous incarnation within the realms of death metal and grindcore, including the mighty Slayer!
This was a top notch start to the year for Mekanik, and if like me, you enjoy your electronic and house music cutting edge, Mekanik is well worth checking out.
