Café Capital, Antwerpen | Doors open at 11pm


SUB-SCAPE celebrates 3 years and 33 parties on Friday 7th November with a line-up that represents the contemporary techno scene in Belgium.

Charleroi native Fabrice Lig is one of the country’s foremost global ambassadors of electronic dance music who has earned respect and admiration from Detroit to Tokyo. His recent "Evolutionism" album under his Soul Designer moniker is a musical journey from the roots to the future of modern dance music that crosses many boundaries.

Brussels-based Peter Van Hoesen has been active as an electronic musician and audiovisual artist for over 10 years and his label Time to Express was founded this year as an outlet for deep, physical techno that evokes the feeling of a jackin’, bass-heavy warehouse marathon where the strobes flash, your chest rattles, salty sweat burns your eyes and you yearn for more.

Antwerp import and SUB-SCAPE Escalator Will O’Brien will ensure that the crowd are suitably warmed up and cooled down !

A bona fide musical genius and living legend, Carl Craig’s peerless production and remixing accomplishments have gained him universal respect and admiration across many boundaries, even earning him a Grammy nomination ! He began recording at the turn of the 90s, following on from the futuristic lead of originators Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson. He became a key player in Detroit techno’s second wave, using a number of aliases to release innovative ambient, techno, house, breakbeat and future-jazz sounds. One such alias, Innerzone Orchestra, issued "Bug in a Bassbin" in 1992, a track that many regard as being a key influence in the evolving sound of drum & bass at that time. He continues to push boundaries to this day, bringing his Midas touch to an array of cutting edge productions. He also heads Planet E Communications, the definitive Detroit label that employs the same eclectic and futuristic ethos that informs his own music.

On this Sunday evening edition Carl Craig will play a special set encompassing the many styles expressed through his multiple aliases such as 69, Paperclip People, Innerzone Orchestra, Designer Music, Detroit Experiment, Moxie, C2 and Tres Demented.

SUB-SCAPE proudly welcomes back one of our all-time musical heroes, Dan Curtin, a true purveyor of fine electronic funk and hypnotic grooves. Since coming to the world’s attention in the early 90s through a series of releases which re-imagined the techno sound of Detroit with a unique twist of his own, Dan has remained one of the most eagerly observed producers in dance music circles. As well as releasing a series of landmark albums on the UK’s Peacefrog label, Dan has gone on to release for countless top techno, house and minimal labels including Strictly Rhythm, Sublime, Elypsia, Down Low, Rush Hour, Starbaby, Headspace, Tuning Spork, Soma, Dust Science, Mobilee and of course his own Metamorphic imprint. He has forged a particularly distinctive and original musical style, thus managing to avoid being identified with any particular scene. Influenced by hip hop, electro and house as much as by Motor City techno, his productions are raw, funky, unpredictable and never stand still. Deeply rooted yet always futuristic, Dan’s sound is as relevant today as it has ever been and it displays a confidence and maturity few contemporary techno producers can match. There is no doubt that Dan Curtin has defined himself as one of the key players in the development of electronic dance music as we know it today.

Equally adept as a dj, Dan loves nothing more than to rock a great party from behind the decks so there’s no better man to finish the SUB-SCAPE anniversary celebrations in fine style !
