We are sorry to annonce that Sascha Dive had to cancel his presence to Piknic this Sunday due to family-related reasons. He will be replaced by Kevin Saunderson, another Detroit techno legend (and our saviour!) who also played at Piknic in 2008. Do you remember? Quite a performance!
So, we’re back from our own mini-summer vacation, and we’re ready to get back to the business of making good times for your summer vacation. After a week off and a week at the Jardin des Floralies, our return to The Calder officially marks the beginning of the second half of Piknic’s tenth season. And if you like your house music a little sophisticated, a bit eccentric, shall we say a touch classy, then this is the Sunday you’ve been waiting for!
Montreal producer and Grrreat Recordings founder Van Did gets the day rolling at 2pm with a pitched alliance of IDM, breakbeat, and electro-acoustics. Over three hours, he’ll take us from all the way from Philip Glass to Extrawelt and back. Listen here!
Come 5pm, local veteran micro-house talent Stephen Beaupré brings his sample-happy angular funkiness to the mix, showcasing the styles that make his releases on labels such as Musique Risquée, Wagon Repair, and others. As mentionned previously, it's Kevin Saunderson who will take over the main stage at 18:30 pm.
Over at the GURU stage, CIBL 101.5 FM hosts David Froment and Olivier Dessureault, of the always interesting weekly program BOUM! TCHAK!, will be cooking up an extra-special afternoon set of dub-techno. The bass bins start rattling at 3pm.
See you Sunday!
