Ben UFO and Helena Hauff to play Crack Magazine party at Motion


Crack Magazine return to Motion on 9 December with a line-up featuring some of the most exciting DJs on the planet

For over a decade now, former Crack Magazine cover star Ben UFO has consistently proved himself as one of dance music’s most important figures. Melding old school UK underground sounds with more experimental shapes from contemporary electronic music, Ben’s sets serve as expertly mixed tours through his ever-growing crates.

Kenny Dixon Jr. aka Moodymann is without question one of the most iconic DJs to ever do it. His nonchalant approach and unpredictable selections make his appearances even more essential now than they were when he first sauntered on to the scene 25 years ago.

There will also be appearances from two of the most thrilling DJs to emerge over the past five years. The bright, esoteric house and techno selections of Rush Hour Records’ Hunee have delighted audiences across the world, regularly igniting pure joy on the dancefloor. Then there’s former Crack Magazine cover star Helena Hauff, whose blend of caustic pitch-black techno and nocturnal electro have intoxicated crowds at every turn – bringing a fierce punk spirit to the dancefloor.

These heavyweights will be joined by esteemed Panorama Bar resident Tama Sumo, ascendant Berlin selector Palms Trax and a DJ set from Overmono – the collaborative project shared by brothers Truss and Tessela.

Support comes from a handful of names from the local scene who have cropped up on Crack Magazine’s radar numerous times over the years – Gramrcy, Daisy Moon and Mr Price.

Head to Motion’s site for more info. Tickets will be available to purchase from 28 September.
