Huge thx to all the dancers and crew for another killer session @salasonorabilbao on Sat 🙏🏻🙏🏻 Great to bring @machineparties to the new look club! Much love to @essanmusic and @cadans_music for joining us and smashing up the dance 🙌🏻 Here’s a lil clip of me going for gold with a VIP version of a 2012 remix from the man like @ritzi.lee, might have to play this more often 😉 More clips from the night to follow on the @machineparties account
I’m heading to the West Coast tomorrow for a run of four USA shows during Thanksgiving week. On Tuesday I’ll be taking control at @technotacotuesdays207 for my debut Las Vegas show and then on Wednesday, I’m heading back to @kremwerk in Seattle for Haused x Depth. On Friday I’m in Phoenix for the first time for the @techno_snobs crew where I’ll be doing a solo set as well as some ASSAILANTS action with @truncate_la (@dasha_rush_official is also on the bill) and, finally, on Saturday I’m back in LA for more ASSAILANTS action at @observe_la. Ahead of the run, I had a chat with @6amgroup in LA which is now online if you fancy a read.

On Friday we’re at @muziekgieterij_maastricht in Maastricht with @derrickmay , and residents while on Saturday @cadans_music (live) and @essanmusic will be joining me at @salasonorabilbao in Bilbao. I’ll post more on Machine 2020 in the next few weeks so stay tuned for news.
Labels Update! Aiken’s ’Stratum’ EP is out now on Symbolism Ltd vinyl (as usual, the vinyl is super-limited so don’t sleep on that), Mark Broom’s ‘Five/Four EP’ is available on Hardgroove vinyl (some stores have digital pre-order available too) and Julien H Mulder’s ’The Sequence’ is available digitally as of tomorrow. Big ups to the likes of Luke Slater (check out his recent Essential Mix), Oscar Mulero, James Ruskin, Ben UFO, Efdemin, DVS1, Dave Clarke and more for the club support on these releases.
