Taking up residency at Oval Space will be DJ Nobu and Dr Rubinstein, while over at The Pickle Factory, Jane Fitz and Evan Baggs will join current resident Fred P. Each artist will play for Oval Space and The Pickle Factory exclusively in London next year.
DJ Nobu needs little introduction. An esteemed DJ with no fixed style, he has been at the forefront of Japan’s electronic music scene since the early 2000s. His renowned Future Terror parties have become something of a pilgrimage for techno, noise and experimental DJs the world over since they started in 2001. But it is as a DJ and record collector that Nobu is really special: while most DJs lean on old favourites and the tried and trusted, Nobu’s selections speak to the wealth of music that remain undiscovered, making him a true master at the craft.
Marina Rubinstein (a.k.a Dr. Rubinstein) is part of the new contingent of emerging techno DJs whose profile is continues to rise thanks to her intense, hypnotic acid sets at clubs including Berghain, About Blank, The Block and de School, to name a few. Together with DJ Nobu, Dr Rubinstein will play exclusively at Oval Space in London next year.
Jane Fitz is a DJ in the purest sense. She has held down a coveted residency at the legendary Freerotation festival alongside running the much-loved Night Moves party with co-founder Jade Seatle. Unique in having created her strong reputation from DJing alone, Fitz occasionally turns her hand at producing too, under the Invisible Menders alias alongside Dom Ahtuam.
Rounding off the new additions to the Residency Programme will be Evan Baggs. A born and bred New Yorker, Baggs is the latest in a tradition of vinyl-obsessed Berlin-oriented DJs who learned their craft at Club der Visionaire.
