TIME WARP Mannheim Saturday December 9th 2011

« As you near the venue, you can hear it. Ever so slightly. There. Yes, It's the bass slowly winding its way out of the venue through the streets and connecting with your heartbeat. You’re about to enter the unknown. About to wake up and reconnect with yourself in a fantastic world of magic, joy and exquisite music. »

Time Warp Holland 2011 - Trailer por Time_Warp_Festival

The who's who of electronic music, the state-of-the-art in video, lighting and laser technology, a magnet for techno fans from all over the world - all of this is Time Warp in Mannheim. But Time Warp is much more than just the pure combination of music and technology. It is also a joyous come-together of the international techno scene and represents a fixed meeting place for the Time Warp community that has been formed across national borders with one thing in common:

an immeasurable great love for electronic music.

Some history…

The Time Warp history began in 1994 when, on the 26th of November, the first Time Warpwas celebrated at the legendary "Walzmühle" in Ludwigshafen. This small but popular venue had a rather compact crowd of 2000 witnessing the dawn of an era. From the beginning, the idea of Timewarp has been to present a high-graded selection of electronic music.

Despite being 17 years old, the Time Warp message has remained the same: To create a unique atmosphere with a state-of-the art line up supported by the finest sound & light equipment in the business.

For this new edition, Time WARP presents a huge line-up, like usual…

In 1995 Time Warp moved to the familiar "Maimarkthalle" in Mannheim and saw the first appearance of Sven Väth. Because of the terrific line up incluiding Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier, Carl Cox, Josh Wink, LFO and more, the numbers of visitors grew to 10,000.
In 2005, The festival starts to travel and took residence in Pragues for the first foreign edition. Following the the "colours of rhythm" concept the festival expanded and from now, three event-zones composed the basis of Time Warp as well as subjects like art and media.

On the live-acts side…

Henrik Schwarz is one of the most versatile artists in electronic music. For years, the Berlin producer has been one of the most innovative house producers worldwide and only recently he broke new ground musically by rewriting a few of his pieces for classical orchestras. At the same time, let’s not forget that it has not even been a year since Henrik celebrated the world premiere of his techno live-act at the Time Warp Mannheim!

Bill Withers - Who Is He (Henrik Schwarz Edit) by future classic

With his new remake of classical Detroit techno he raised a storm of enthusiasm from the audience. The GOA Electronic Parties resident just been voted 4th better 2011 Live-act in the Resident Advisor rating.

Underworld is one of the most legendary duos in history of electronic music celebrates their Time Warp premiere! With Trainspotting and “Born Slippy NUXX” Karl Hyde and Rick Smith attracted the attention of the world’s media in 1996. Typically British drum patterns melt seamlessly into euphoric melody parts accompanied by Karl's characteristic vocal shouts – Underworld are certainly a band that you just MUST have seen live! Even after three decades on stage and nine studio albums they still belong to the top headliners in the genre of electronic music. Every year millions of fans around the globe celebrate their shows enthusiastically.

Paris – the city of love, the birthplace of Haute Cuisine and the home of Paul Ritch! The latter is especially appreciated in France as well as the rest of the world for his excellent productions and remixes. “Samba” was the name of the French man’s debut on Reposal and instantly made its way into the record boxes of renowned DJs like Richie Hawtin or Dubfire. Straight minimal techno with a forward drive – this is Paul Ritch’s secret recipe, which also well-known labels seem to savour – from Adam Beyer’s Drumcode, Mathew Jonson’s Wagon Repair to Dubfire’s SCI+Tec. If your mouth is already watering at the thought of a Paul Ritch live-set, be prepared to satisfy your appetite at the Time Warp Holland 2011.

At least since his massive hit “Coma Cat” Tensnake has become the talk of the town.

Still, Marco Niemerski does not feel like a “Dance Music Poster Boy”, as he told Resident Advisor. And he does not have to – after all, he has been one of the global players in Discohouse for a long time.
This is also his mission for the Time Warp in 's-Hertogenbosch: to be the headliner of the new Disco Floor. His exclusive live-set will surely be a worthy inauguration of the floor. So prepare to hit the dance floor!

Progressive beats complemented by sinister synth arrangements? A crossover between Techno, House and Trance? It might be difficult to describe the sound of Extrawelt but it is surely easy to dance to. The two guys from Hamburg, Wayaan and Arne, have always been known for fat prime time bangers like “Soopertrack” and sinister minimal hymns like “Dark Side of my Room” but they also don’t shy away from adventures in the remote realms of breakbeats. With this rich musical repertoire they carry us of into their own world of sounds, melodies and beats – the Extrawelt.

Let’s Dance !

On the Djs side, like usual some regulars like Sven VATH, who hasn't missed one TIME WARP in 16 years, Loco Dice, Karotte, Marco Carola but also Tommy Four Seven, Michel de Hey and Richie Hawtin talking about some surprise...
