Here at smartbar, we’re big believers in supporting the dance community through thick and thin. As many of you already know, Oktave Recordsfounder Jeff Derringer has been busy beating cancer for the second time, so in anticipation of that victory we’re going to be donating a portion of the night’s proceeds to Imerman Angels, an organization that provides one-on-one support among cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers. We’re happy to welcome two titans of techno—Ben Sims and Savile—to champion the cause alongside us.
With over two decades of experience behind the decks, Ben Sims’ reputation as one of the world’s leading techno DJs is anything if not well-earned. Known for weaving together sharp-edged funk and hard grooves into wall shaking mixes, Sims’ illustrious reputation precedes him. As for Savile, the smartbar resident and Argot/Tasteful Nudes label partner not only wants you to move—he wants you to ponder. Leaning on hard electronic and metallic beats of midwestern techno, Savile beckons listeners to contemplate creation, connection, and conglomeration one track at a time.
We’ll see you on the dance floor Saturday night…
