  • DJのYUI が主催する、仙台発 “ALL ELECTRONIC MUSIC”パーティー『DREAMESCAPE』。これまで仙台のSHAFTやHI-HATに国内外の尖鋭達を迎えてきた同パーティーは、2021年より東京・下北沢のSPREADを新たな拠点として開催を続けている。 東京編・第3回目は、テクノ、エレクトロ、コールドウェーブ、インダストリアル、EBM、ミニマル・シンセなどの魅力的なリイシューやアーカイブコレクション、そして昨今の気鋭アーティストの作品をもカバーするレーベル〈Mannequin〉を主宰するAlessandro Adrianiをベルリンより迎える。ダークで重く、そして先鋭的でオブスキュアなサウンドを好むAdrianiは、プロデューサーとして〈Stroboscopic Artefacts〉や〈Pinkman〉などから自身の作品をリリースするほか、DJとしては2016年初頭からはBerghain/Panorama Barにて隔月で行われてるレジデンシーにも出演を続けている。 国内からは、〈Mannequin〉からLPのリリースもあるデュオ・group AのSayaka Botanicと共にSPREADにてイベント 『Fruitfulness』を主宰する、要注目の電子音楽奏者・FATHERが幽玄なLIVE SETを披露。 そして現行EBM・インダストリアル・エレクトロを知る上でも重要なJASSS、Marsman、Identified Patient等のアーティストと共演を経て独自に感性を磨き上げてきたRomy Matsと、過去から現行のエレクトロニクスに敬意を払いながら独自の文脈と自身の音楽体験をフロアに落とし込むimusの2人をDJに迎え、新しい電子音楽の奔流を展開する。 Alessandro Adriani is a lot of things – producer, DJ, live performer and label owner – but above all he is a tireless music researcher. The Berlin-based Italian goes further than your average “crate digger” in pursuit of information about sounds, styles, artists and record labels, devoting countless hours to unearthing the untold stories behind the music he loves, regardless of when it was made. Adriani’s obsession has naturally shaped his other musical endeavors, not least Mannequin Records, the label he established over than a decade ago, voted label of the month by Resident Advisor in 2017. Over the years, the imprint has won praise from buyers and critics alike for its open-minded blend of on-point reissues, archival collections and fresh productions. The intriguing, leftfield mixture of material on offer – think techno, electro, cold wave, industrial, EBM, minimal synth, and more – is naturally a reflection of Adriani’s wide-ranging and off-kilter tastes (as you’d discover if you had a quick flick through his vast and growing record collection). Adriani is distinctively drawn towards the dark and obscure, and you can hear this approach amongst the long, drawn-out mixes of his similarly eclectic DJ sets. Alessandro has contributed outstanding mixes for Resident Advisor, FACT, Crack Magazine, Bleep, Cxema and Dekmantel. On the festival circuit he’s made appearances at Dekmantel, ADE, Dimensions, Neopop, Positive Education, Signal and more, together with his bi-monthly dates at Berghain and Panorama Bar, a residency he’s held since early 2016. As a producer, Adriani’s output naturally draws on these inspirations, but also reflects his obsession with electronic hardware. Under his own name Adriani has built a reputation for delivering heavy, angular and forthright club cuts for such celebrated labels as Stroboscopic Artefacts, Jealous God, Pinkman and - of course - Mannequin Records.
