What a night Friday was! Innervisions at The Albert Hall, a journey through some of the finest upfront electronic music – it really was an absolute pleasure to hear music I've listened to for the last 15 years in Warehouse's, in a venue as iconic as The Albert Hall. Not to mention the acoustics there, the sound was spot on. Anyway here is the main man dropping his biggest number "Rej". If any of you are in to this sort of stuff, google the link for the full 6 hours of performances. You won't be disappointed. #Àme #Dixon #Innervisions
Innervisions are not new to unusual locations – they have thrown parties in all sorts of unexpected settings, from a castle in Tuscany to a Catalan military prison. But about their London show, label founders Dixon and Âme said:
“The performance will be an unforgettable milestone for both Royal Albert Hall and the label, as modern electronic music is taken out of the clubs and thrust onto the stage of a global icon.” Innervisions
There isn’t a seat in sight in our arena, so our guests had enough space to dance!
It was the largest house music night ever put on within our walls, with around five hours of house and techno played across the course of the evening. The giant screen cube allowed the artists to deliver a full audiovisual experience to the audience.
The evening started with long-time Innervisions signee Marcus Worgull taking to the decks first, then the Croatian visual artist Nina Kurtela performed a contemporary dance piece.
Dixon and Âme were of course booked in for the headline slots. One half of Âme, Frank Wiedemann, performed a live set alongside Gudrun Gut and Matthew Herbert, while the other half, Kristian Beyer, closed the night with a b2b set with Dixon.
Here’s Dixon & Âme closing the monumental Innervisions show

Before that, Howling, Wiedemann’s side project with folk artist Ry X, played their only live set of 2018.

The Royal Albert Hall. It far surpassed my expectations! Awesome warm-ups from Marcus Worgull and Nina Kurtela. Henrik & Bugge brilliantly transitioned us through the night, then on to some amazing performances from Frank & co, followed by Howling (amaziiiing) and ending with Dixon b2b Kristian - the place was BOUNCING by this point!
