All you lovers of the deep tech are in for a major treat on Saturday, May 19th because As You Like It and Public Works are getting together again to throw one helluva partay.  This time around the talent is major, major, major and in a big way. None other Deetron and Camea are gracing the turntables at the Works and I know that you are as excited as I am. Deetron hails from Switzerland, where he cut his teeth on the decks at legendary niteries like Zurich’s Trax club way back in ’95.

Known to his mom as Sam Geiser and hailing from the Swiss city of Bern he fell in love with the sounds emanating from the American mid-west. His productions on reputable labels like Music Man and Circus Company reflect this undying passion for the innovative spirit of Chicago and Detroit. His work is a very melodic and house-inflected take on the classic Detroit techno sound and it has ensured that he has been an in-demand dj around the globe for the last decade. We’re delighted to have him on board.

Camea was born and raised in Seattle in the midst of a wide range of music, taking to the piano at a young age. She released her first work in 2006 on her own Clink Music label and followed this with a significant string of strong club tracks and remixes, including a 2007 reworking of Ambivalent’s “R U OK?” on Plus 8 offshoot M_nus. That remix made her the first female artist to be ever featured on any of Richie Hawtin’s labels. Since then she has produced more work for Clink, collaborated on tracks with Tim Xavier and remixed prolific artists like Ellen Allien, Tony Rohr and Pan-Pot. She relocated to Berlin in 2007 and  has been touring the globe, sharing stages with fellow djs such as, Ricardo Villalobos, Magda and Ellen Allien.

Opening up the night will be the fine As You Like It residents MossMoss and Rich Korach. We are super stoked on this one, so please stop by and join us for a stompin’ good time on the main floor at the Works.
