you’ve heard of the term “trifecta,” right? it means a run of three wins. a trio of golden moments that occur together, one after the other. a perfect group of three. in this case, trifecta means rusty faders, ewerx, and diagraf. it means the meeting point between audio, visual, and visceral: orbital mechanics.
it was with much excitement that the music industry welcomed CNTRL: beyond EDM – the first ever DJ tour that fused the performance and party aspects of music culture with the technical side of electronic music. conceived by mastermind and industry legend richie hawtin, the CNTRL tour hit dozens of cities in north america, with two-hour long seminars during the day and an all night long (sort of) party after the fact. CNTRL’s mission is to promote a deeper understanding of electronic music by encouraging discussion about the future of techno and technology, lead by the industry’s leading DJs hawtin, loco dice and ean golden, along with a different guest speaker in each city. true to form, i was unspeakable amounts more excited for the seminar than the party, because i am a huge hopeless nerd and i love learning.
