#TECHYES – Announcing TECH(NO.10)
Those of you who read my articles with any regularity know that I’m a man of simple and predictable tastes. When I like an act or event, it’s pretty damn hard to get me to shut up about it. Fortunately for me, my opinions tend to be right.
When it comes to Chicago’s TECH(NO) loft series, I certainly am! The 2nd annual Chicago Nightlife Awards has nominated Chicago-based independent Electronic music event promoter/organizer, Reverse Events, for “best monthly party.”
They’re especially eager to show the world why TECH(NO) deserves the award. For this reason, I’m not even a little sorry to announce that Reverse Events’ TECH(NO) loft series, plans to host to yet another of Toronto, Canada’s most talented and prolific underground DJ/producers, D-Unity, in their upcoming event, TECH(NO.10). His résumé includes global support by Armin Van Buuren, Eric Prydz, Carl Cox, Mark Knight, Pete Tong, and Richie Hawtin, Toolroom, Yoshitoshi, Great Stuff, Stereo Productions, Ultra, Armada – and even his own Unity Records.
“We’re very excited to have D-Unity play the 10th edition of TECH(NO). He’s a hard working artist that brings the heat 100% of the time. We don’t know if Chicago is ready for this – but we’re doing it anyway!” says Andrew D. of Reverse Events.
Joining D-Unity is a heavy array of local support including Steve Gerard, Mark Angel, and Afterdark recordings owner Twitchin Skratch. They won’t say who it is, but they’ve apparently booked a special guest duo who will debut together for the first time at TECH(NO.10)! Miester returns to the Sunrise slot to end the night on a hard note.
I’ve personally been to most of their events. In fact, the TECH(NO) loft series is enough to convince me to get on a plane and leave San Francisco for my hometown of Chicago. While technically not an afterhours, these events run “late,” and tend to cater to the same audience of dedicated clubgoers. I’ll never pay for tickets because I fucking rule, but I’ve had enough of my friends not get in after they hit capacity so I’ll usually load up on a few presale tickets for my friends. You should too.
The last TECH(NO) event featured Sydney Blu and I can say from personal experience that it was an unreal show.
