On Friday August 1st, we continue our series of live music shows with a performance from the Berlin based electronic music producer – PANTHA DU PRINCE – at De Burgo’s. Melodic experimental techno meets Detroit house meets melancholic moodiness – this is a very rare opportunity to catch one of the finest electronic producers of recent years in the Galway underground.

Affiliated with Hamburg’s Dial Music label, Pantha Du Prince (aka Hendrik Weber), creates beautiful and blissfully disturbing minimal techno for an audience of soul searching party-goers. Praised by electronic music legends Michael Mayer (Kompakt), Richie Hawtin (Minus), Martin L.Gore (Depeche Mode) and Sascha Funke (BPitch Control), his driving and euphoric live sets wander between the Avant-garde and the rush and excitement of the dance floor.
After a debut album “Diamond Daze” in 2003, remixes for Depeche Mode, Animal Collective and Raz O´Hara (Apparat Band) came his 2007 big release – “This Bliss” – a record that exists at both the heart and at the boundaries of house and techno music. Weber deliberately employs ambiguity to blur the edges of technology and communication, thus keeping the heart of “This Bliss” constantly in motion. Reluctant to fulfill expectations for instant excitement, it is all about this sudden un-programmed bliss, about existing in the musical moment – something Marx would call the “Kingdom of Freedom”. We defy you not to be seduced…

This track (the first on The Bliss) is 6 and a half minutes of electronic music at it’s finest.
