Deetron, aka Sam Geiser, is set to blow the Melbourne tekno community away in a late-night tekno assault for 2 hours across 3 decks, demonstrating the awesome tekno talents that have earned him productions on Carl Cox's label In-Tec, Belgium's Music Man and one of the world's foremost labels for funky tekno, Phont Music.

Deetron is one of the world's most respected DJs and producers, with remixes for the likes of Samuel L Session, Orlando Voorn and Paul Mac, releases alongside DJ Shufflemaster and Box Blaze on Thomas Schumaker's Spiel Zeug label, and tracks that have been licensed to taste-maker DJs Carl Cox and Christian Smith and Melbourne's own Wetmusik, demonstrating the versatility of his sound to cross all musical barriers from funky to slammin'.

With further releases on Dave Angel's label Rotation, Steve Bicknell's Cosmic and Jay Denham's Black Nation, as well as the creation of his own label, Character, and a DJ schedule that includes such infamous tekno clubs as House of God in Birmingham, the Rex in Paris, and Tresor in Berlin and you have one of tekno's most prolific and most talented entertainers.

Don't miss the opportunity to see this man in action across 3 decks in his only Australian performance on July 20 at Fokus. With support from Fokus residents Simon Coyle, Disko Pussy, Ben Cromack and Mike Callander.

This show will sell out - arrive early to avoid disappointment.
