PR’s Machine Life series, is a run of shows exploring the intersection of humans, machines and movement with both live electronic and dj sets. For this edition, we welcome Cape Town-born Berlin-based artist Alan Abrahams aka Portable. Drawing inspiration from the indigenous African sounds of his youth, Chicago house records, and the myriad of styles heard during his time in London, Lisbon and now Berlin, Abrahams music crosses genres and times. The past, present and future coalesce in an atmospheric swirl of undulating rhythms and warm electronic tones. On the decks is savile – a PR resident – who has been an integral player in the American dance music underground for over a decade. With a distinctly midwestern flare, savile’s music is a body in flux, resisting commodification while grooving to the inimitable beat of change.
