Hyte Nye Festival at Uni Arena with Richie Hawtin, Chris Liebing & more

On Tuesday the 31 of December 2013 the Hyte team, the Butan Club crew and several of the currently most respected and in demand protagonists in the international electronic music scene invite you to celebrate a memorable New Year’s night in an impressive location. From 6 pm until 7 am, Monoloc, Tommy Four Seven, Karotte, Monika Kruse, Matador, Chris Liebing and Richie Hawtin will deliver the soundtrack for this highly promising night in the Uni Arena in Wuppertal. Each single one of the invited artists has already left a personal mark on the contemporary Techno sound and it is a big pleasure and honour for us to welcome this truly refreshing mixture of independent and inspiring artists for this very special occasion under the same roof.

Since many years already, Karotte enjoys an undisputed reputation in the scene. His music successfully resists each attempt of narrow­minded pigeon­holing, but if you are looking for an example of a thoroughbred DJ who not only spins his music, but really feels and transmits it with enthusiasm, the passionate DJ/producer and radio host would surely be a good example.

Monika Kruse is so to speak our undisputed German First Lady. She has delivered countless much appreciated sets and productions, and to have her as part of this night ́s lineup is just a great pleasure. Thanks to her ability of creating an infectious party vibe with her unique choice of music, she is definitely one of the guarantees for an unforgettable New Year ́s Eve.

To find the name Chris Liebing in such good company on a special night like this one will save many Techno lovers a lot of thinking about where to go on New Year ́s Eve. Only very few artists in the contemporary world of Techno can transmit the magic of this sound as strikingly and dynamic as this passionate label­head, DJ, producer and all­time Techno ambassador. Partly due to his restless efforts as a performer and the open­minded approach of his label CLR, Techno is nowadays more interesting and unpredictable than ever.

Taking into account that it ́s New Year ́s Eve and that the name Hyte NYE Festival is not exactly a small promise, another far and wide respected artist will join this assemly of highly significant Techno enthusiasts. None other than Richie Hawtin, one of the true Techno pioneers and creators of genre­defining music will add his unique touch to this very special night. No matter if in his early days as a kid on the first Underground Techno parties in Detroit, as a world­famous DJ, as Plastikman or as the promoter of his popular Enter nights at Space Ibiza, Richie Hawtin always manages to surprise and thrill the scene with his latest inventions. To have him on board is a dream­come­true for us and we can ́t wait to celebrate this New Year ́s Eve with such an awe­inspiring lineup.
