Control & Novel present Paula Temple


Saturday February 8th 2020


Oxford Art Factory

Following a year spent showcasing sets at ADE and Nuits Sonores, we welcome the return of Paula Temple for a 3 hr set. For over 15 years Paula Temple has been pursuing her own unique musical path. As a self confessed noisician she specialises in a noisy, phantasmagoric techno sound, keeping her at the forefront of today's techno scene. Her 2015 track ‘Deathvox’ is regarded by her peers as one of the most original contributions to modern techno, whilst her most celebrated track ‘Gegen’ remains an anthem at festivals worldwide and was inspired by the defiantly loving queer community of Berlin. In previous years, Paula co-developed an innovative live performance MIDI controller called the MXF8 in 2001, one of the first of its kind for music technology and ultimately shaped her current style of hybrid LIVE/DJ performances. Blurring the lines between producer, remixer and DJ, Paula layers between her own live pieces, edits and tracks, building powerful, driving sets. Her worldwide touring schedule has included stellar performances at Movement Detroit, Pitch Music & Arts and Mutek Mexico, as well as being a regular contributor to the Berlin techno scene at Tresor, About Blank, Gegen, Berghain and the now defunct Stattbad. Having recently featured at Timewarp, Montreux Jazz, Dimensions and Awakenings festivals, Paula released her debut album ‘Edge Of Everything’ earlier this year, dubbed by Resident Advisor “an evocative techno album which is an impeccable showcase of Temple’s artistic voice”.

Local support from Trinity, Black Dahlia, Hex Yellow DJ's (HappyBoy & Energy Inc.) and Kelp b2b RMR
