It’s Not Only Techno, Baby! – Opus 2.
It’s Not Only Techno, Baby!’s second edition, Opus 2, “Initiation”, will take place on January 19 at Wake Up Call Club, Istanbul.
We’re proud and happy to announce the participation of great artists and performers such as Denise Ion, Erdi Irmak and Laurence Skivée.
“It’s Not Only Techno, Baby!” is a bi-monthly event which aims to promote the culture of Techno Music (minimal, detroit, tech house, …), and ONLY Techno Music.
The “Not Only” part stands as an opposition to techno’s detractors, who are blind and deaf to the richness and complexity of this musical genre which oftenly and wrongly see it as ‘simple’, due to its repetitive aspect.
But don’t get us wrong, Baby!, we don’t do prom balls.

Introducing: Laurence Skivée
