Electric Zoo Festival 2013: What You Need To Know – Sunday: Sunday School Grove

Sunday features some of the greatest artists in techno from the Drumcode label, including founder Adam Beyer himself. This is not your typical electro house stage with massive build-ups and drops. The tech house genre may seem subtle at first, but lends itself to longer sets that offer the full impact of this deep, minimal style of electronic music. Once you wrap your head around it, it’s surprisingly addictive. And you can bet on an older crowd, too.

Who You’ll See

Electric Zoo Festival 2013: What You Need To Know - Sunday: Sunday School Grove (Drumcode)

Who You Can’t Miss

Adam Beyer – Closing out the night at Sunday School Grove is the techno legend himself. Founder of Drumcode records and the popular Drumcode Radio show, Adam Beyer has built the scene into what it is today. This genre is poised to have a moment, so if you want to see what all the buzz is about and check it out before this deep sound goes big, Beyer is a thorough introduction.

Ida Engberg – Another Swedish import on the Sunday School Grove line-up, Engberg’s minimal style of techno has evolved over her long career. She’s experienced on the festival circuit and has her share of Ibiza residencies to show for her hard work and talent. Engberg’s collaborations with Adam Beyer never fail to please, but check out some of her solo work for a lighter sound.

Under the Radar Artist

Nicole Moudaber – The rising queen of techno is coming out of Adam Beyer’s mentorship and into her own. Her debut album, ‘Believe,’ was released on Drumcode this year to excellent reviews, including a mention in Rolling Stone. With her signature wild hair and dirty, sexy tech house beats, a live Moudaber set is not to be missed by the true tech head.

Who You Can Pass On

Victor Calderone – This guy plays many New York clubs regularly throughout the year, so it’s likely you can catch him at Pacha or Output in the coming months. His set time also corresponds with Armin van Buuren over at Main Stage West, which is a definite must-see.
