Venue: The Garage
Time: 10pm – 6am
The next installment in the ever developing chapter of Liverpool venue The Garage will see them welcome in two titans of the mix compilation come together, as Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren go head to head in aid of the former’s Balance 026 mix compilation, released in the UK on Monday 13th October.
As two of the most reverential selectors on the planet, both Cattaneo and Warren can justify their status as true masters of the art form of playing music. Both of them can boast of a cavernous huge musical arsenal that makes them both capable of delivering wide ranging musical journeys over prolonged periods of time – perfect for this special event where they’ll be playing back to back for a whopping five hours.
Cattaneo’s Balance 026 sees him take the helm of the hugely respected Australian mix series, following on from the likes of James Holden, Radio Slave and the man who most recently missed it, Danny Tengalia. It’s one of only a handful of regular compilations in the modern era that live up to the huge legacy the format has produced over the years, feted amongst the music press around the globe.
The release is classic Cattaneo, deep melodic music which is heavy on groove. It’s evident of the sound with which he has characterised over his career and guaranteed to be emblematic of his set at the Garage, with the likes of Guy J, Moderat and Mano Le Tough all appearing, alongside several of his own productions and remixes.
Warren also has plenty of pedigree on the mix cd circuit too, having been synonymous with classic compilations from the likes of Cream, Global Underground and Renaissance over the years, as well as being behind the 18th installment of Balance’s compilation in 2011.
The two can equally count on a rich heritage playing Liverpool’s best events, with frequent appearances at the likes of Cream, Circus and Freeze, making their back to back coming together a truly momentous occasion for the city, and another coup for the Garage.
