13-14 The Oval, E2 9DT London, United Kingdom
On 13th October, Pickle hosts an electro special, headlined by a rare appearance from Drexciya and Dopplereffekt creator Gerald Donald, who will perform live as his legendary project Arpanet; his first show under the Arpanet moniker in London for over five years. He's joined by supreme digger Intergalactic Gary, who prepares a special set of Golden Age electro and breakbeat from Detroit and the UK. Support comes from Freerotation resident Alex Downey.

Drexciya is a name imbued with deep meaning for electro and techno aficionados. Together with his friend James Stinson, Gerald Donald created Drexciya in the early 1990s, releasing a series of seminal electro records that haven't been matched since. To those who know, some of Gerald Donald's finest work was recorded under the pseudonym Arpanet — electro at its deepest and most strange, brimming with early sci-fi references and afrofuturist subtext. Although he regularly performs as Dopplereffekt on festival main stages and cavernous warehouses, Donald hasn't performed as Arpanet in London for half a decade — until now. On 13th October, Arpanet comes to The Pickle Factory for a rare headline show.

He's joined by a welcome return from Intergalactic Gary. The Hague's finest was last spotted in Bethnal Green tearing the roof off Pickle after Convextion in February. This time, IG prepares a special Electronix set that sees him digging deep into his electro, breaks and Detroit techno collection. Support comes from one the UK's finest electro DJs, Alex Downey. The Freerotation resident has been on our radar for a while — he's a simply sublime DJ of dance music in all styles, rhythms and textures. Yet it's Downey's electro collection that has particularly piqued our interest. His 'Drexciya Wavejumper set', recorded in the Stinson-esque surrounds of Bloc Festival's pool stage, is an essential retrospective on the genre. Alex is the perfect man to warm the floor for an evening of Detroit electro on 13th October.
