The Bunker presents Popnoname and Mike Servito at subTonic 107 Norfolk Street 21+, 10p-4a
Inspired by the Detroit radio of the eighties and local dj heroes of the nineties, Mike Servito came of age in the Detroit electronic music scene, debuting in 1995 and quickly gaining the attention and respect of his peers. After a brief hiatus from djing and through the vigorous encouragement of close friends Magda, Jon Ozias, and Sam Valenti, Servito returned to the DJ realm in 2002, re-defining himself and finding inspiration in the flourishing next generation of electronic music producers and DJs. A lifelong music fanatic, Servito is a DJ's DJ. He is equally adept in any musical setting and fearless in his transition from one style of music to another. He bridges styles seamlessly without an afterthought to their classification. It is this unpredictability and trust in his music knowledge that has garnered Servito a cult following around Detroit and made him an in-demand DJ over the years. Popnoname is the project of 27-year-old Jens-Uwe Beyer from Cologne. Perhaps most well known for his contributions to Kompakt's Pop Ambient compilations in 2005 and 2006, he has also released some more driving material for Cologne labels Italic and Firm. Tonight he plays a live set in his North American debut performance. He has performed all over Cologne, including the C/O Pop Festival, and has played at many clubs around Europe, including the legendary Der Visionaire in Berlin.
