Kapital 5th Birthday with Stephan Bodzin
You only need to look at the sheer pedigree of recent headliners such as Michael Mayer and Mathew Johnson to get some idea of what Kapital is about, and so to celebrate reaching this milestone anniversary they have enlisted the undeniable and influential talents of Stephan Bodzin to blow out the candles on their fifth birthday cake.
Stephan, for the uninitiated, has been around since minimal techno’s inception and has been the production driving force behind major scene protagonists such as Thomas Schumacher, Marc Romboy and long term collaborator Oliver Huntemann. By his own admission he is first and foremost a producer, rather than a DJ. With this in mind, he will be utilising a serious armoury of hardware. Famed for his early endorsement of the Jazzmutant touch-sensitive performance equipment, his live performances are every bit interactive as they are high octane. Support on the night will be provided by none other than Bodzin’s own wife, Luna Semara and the ever present resident duo of Barry O'Connell and Brad Charters, coupled with a rare appearance by original resident Michael Ford to complete the line up. If you like techno, you owe it to yourself to make it down to this sure to be spectacular live show, the likes of which are rarely seen in Scotland. [Stu Todd]
