Vision Quest @ Rouge - Ryan Crosson and Lee Curtiss
FUTURE VISIONQUEST GIG CHANGE OF VENUE/CITY
Due to circumstances totally out of our control with new promoters in The Den our gig with Visionquest on Saturday 12th November has had to be moved down the road to ROUGE in MIDDLESBROUGH. We tried our best to find a suitable replacement venue in Newcastle but with the time scale and size of the event we have had no other choice but to return it to the venue where Future started in Middlesbrough. We apologise for any inconvenience this will have caused but hope you will join us in what’s set to be one of the biggest nights of the year in the North East (especially after their incredible set at DC10 closing last week!).
Rouge is where we have hosted nights with such acts as Jamie Jones, Claude Vonstroke, Dan Ghenacia and Steve Lawler to name but a few. We will be reopening the venue for a one off party there and will be putting all our effort into production and quirky touches. This is a rare appearance by VISIONQUEST and we have decided to give them free hold of the main room playing from start to finish and surprise guests and residents in the other rooms.
The venue is attached to the train station and is in the centre of town so is incredibly easy to get to.
Tickets will be the same price £10, more on the door but if you have already got yours and do not want to travel to Middlesbrough we will give you a full refund.
Again we apologise at the inconvenience this has caused but this is the only way we could make this event go ahead and after the success of the Rebelrave in July we hope you do.

Visionquest are… Seth Troxler, Ryan Crosson, Shaun Reeves and Lee Curtiss, the most innovative and exciting new breed of DJ/producers to come out of the city of Detroit in a generation. Last year their remix of Kiki’s ‘Good Voodoo’ on BPitch Control was one of the summer’s biggest underground hits and together they have released tracks on leading labels like Crosstown Rebels, Spectral Sound, Get Physical, Circus Company, Supplement Facts, Wolf+Lamb, Wagon Repair and Minus. Both individually and together they play regularly at clubs the world over like Fabric (London), Watergate (Berlin), Cityfox (Zurich), Tenax (Florence), Fiesta Privada (Rome), Cocoon (Frankfurt) and Circoloco@Dc10 (Ibiza) as well as holding their weekly ‘Soulshower’ residency at Club Der Visonaere in Berlin. Their Visionquest party at the Old Miami at this year’s Detroit Electronic Music Festival brought together many of the scene’s freshest talent in a spirit of friendship, fun and radical progression, much needed in a scene so easy to stagnate.
First up a bit of history... for over two decades the city of Detroit, Michigan has been the home and birthplace of techno. In the mid eighties, inspired by German electronic bands like Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream, the ‘Bellville Three’ (named after their high school), Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May started experimenting with synthesisers and drum machines establishing a musical soundscape that was soon hailed as techno. In the early nineties local African-American DJs like Jeff Mills, Rob Hood and Mike Banks were joined by local white kids, Richie Hawtin and Dan Bell, who experimented with stripping the sound back to its bare essentials creating the early template for minimal techno. A decade later, this inspired Ann Arbor college kids Matthew Dear, Ryan Elliott and Hawtin’s friend Magda, to build on this sound, exporting it globally and creating one of dance music’s dominant scenes. While all this was happening house legends like Theo Parrish, Kenny Dixon Jnr and Aaron Carl were defining the Motorcity’s unique and deeply emotive take on house music.
Now comes Visionquest, a new generation of young, talented producers from Detroit who draw influence from all who have come before them, following in their footsteps, while defining a unique sound of their own. Here you have four DJs who have grown up organizing parties and DJing in the city and around the world for the last ten years. Their attention is firmly focused on the deeper soul of quality electronic music, driven by emotion and developed from their very different musical backgrounds. Visionquest have their roots in Motown, draw ambitious spiritual vibes from forerunners like Theo Parrish and Moodyman, deliver the quality of sound and attitude of a best selling Minus record rounded off with the dreamy, otherworldly vibe of the Spectral sound.
