Dimensions Preview Part 2


Daily boat parties on the clear Adriatic Sea help make festivals in Croatia unique experiences, and Dimensions Festival has 21 to choose from. In the second part of our preview of the respected four-day underground electronic music event in Pula, we take a look at the boat parties organised for 2014 day-by-day. Each is hosted by club nights and labels featuring some of the biggest names at the festival on the most intimate setting of a constantly sailing ship in the middle of the sea.

Thursday, August 28th
One of the first boat parties to set sail is at 12.30pm curated by Belgium house night ensemble run by Gratts and Kong. The 22tracks Brussels house curators will get behind the decks supporting headliner and party instigator Space Dimension Controller along with Berlin based house trio Aroma Pitch and the upcoming San Soda. Bass-loving London label Hyperdub sets off at the same time with boss Kode9 joined by ex-Grimey Breakfast man and Hyperdub faithful Scratcha DVA.

Dance music gurus Resident Advisor go for the techno old and new at 16.15. Representing the Detroit sound of yore is Anthony ‘Shake’ Shakir while the new skool comes from Berghain favourite Marcel Dettmann. Later at 20.00 prolific London label Hessle Audio have regulars Ben UFO, Pearson Sound, Pangaea and Marquis Hawkes on board. Glasgow’s Sensu clubnight is 10 years old this year and help the celebrations with a boat party sailing at a time TBC with local selector Jackmaster supported by Barry Price & Junior.

Friday, August 29th
All aboard for 12.30 for Apron Records at 12.30 with label boss FunkinEven joined by Seven Davis Jr. and Greg Beato for raw electronic music on the seas. At 16.15 London label and clubnight organisers Electric Minds have the Move D and Dolan Bergin playing the deep house, or opt for Parisian promoters Release the Groove with Underground Paris, Brawther, J055 and San Soda.

There are two evening boats at 20.00. Ireland-based Bodytronic have come a long way since putting on parties in Meath and then Dublin at the start of the 2000s, and their respected brand brings Vakula, Space Dimension Controller and Conor L to one boat Friday evening. The other is hosted by WTF x Common Sense People who have Roman Flügel, Konstantin Sibold b2b Leif Muller and Candy Pollard lined up.

Saturday, August 30th
Dalston’s Dance Tunnel help get the action underway on Saturday by joining forces with promoters zleep. ItaloJohnson, Damiano Von Erckert, Nick Cobby and Matt Wickings make up their DJ crew at 12.30. Setting off at the same time is London’s Plastic People regulars Nonsense who bring six acts aboard: Onra, Andrew Ashong, Benny Blanco, Josey Rebelle, Judah and Mr Wonderful.

Drum and bass hits the seas with Exit Records at 16.15 thanks to dBridge, Skeptical, Stray and SP:MC or try the inventive beats of Elgo Records hosting Daphni, Floating Points, Alexander Nut and Fatima. The late boats are at 20.00: Flux x Supremebeing with Motor City Drum Ensemble, Dan Shake and Aartekt or L.I.E.S. vs Creme Organization with Ron Morelli, DJ TLR and Svengalisghost.

Sunday, August 31st
If you’ve got the energy for an early trip in the Adriatic, join the three-way combination of Level.01 x Alpha x Sound Architecture at 12.30 with Dan Shake, Jonas Lion, Joachim, Bafana and Bromin helping ease you into the day. If you need something more meaty, try the Metalheadz boat at 16.15 with label boss Goldie joined by Jubei b2b Lenzman, Ulterior Motive and SP:MC. The alternative boat at 16.15 sees The Hydra present White Material with DJ Richard, Galcher Lustwerk and Young Male.

Your last chance to don boat shoes legitimately at Dimensions come at 20.00. VICE’s Thump will get Alix Perez and DJ TLR behind the decks for the sunset trip while Weather Festival in Paris have Karizma, Trus’Me and S3A.
