THE UNBELIEVABLE INTENSITY OF TECHNO DJS HYPERACTIVE AND TRENCH
Huntington Beach via Chicago DJ Hyperactive (aka 4 Track Records boss Joe Manumaleuna) earned a sterling rep in the '90s for his remorselessly banging, acidic techno on elite labels like Drop Bass Network, Communiqué, and Planet of Drums. Check out "Venus" for perhaps the zenith of Hyperactive's peak-time heaters. The intensity of the rhythm and the synth stabs is almost off the scales. Trench, who splits his time between Seattle and Detroit, should complement well Hyperactive's set with his own rugged, pressurized, and funky techno. Q, 9 pm, free, 21+.
