Rave techno was turned on its head when Cisco Ferreira’s tunes as The Advent hit the scene in 1993. Formerly a team affair, Ferreira took the helm in 1999 from Colin McBean, continuing to tour and release under the moniker. Fast-forward to 2009 and Ferreira still works the masses with high-octane, cut-and-paste techno, now with a new partner in tow. Portugal’s Industrialyzer met Ferreira in 2007 and the pair have since recorded several tracks for the Kombination Research and Codeworks imprints. Their live set rocks the party with speedy, chest-pounding beats, swinging percussion and frenzied acid-techno loops. If your plan was to check out some minimal techno, look elsewhere.
