Keeping true to form, the latest edition of Ganban Night sees the event bring across an overseas DJ who is both genre defying and currently favored by the hipster crowd. London-based Graeme Sinden is a DJ known for sets that fly through genres ranging from house to techno to hip-hop to dubstep and beyond, and for mixing an enormous number of tracks in a short space of time (often he fits 25 or so tracks into an hour — compare that to the usual 12 for most house DJs.)

The sound that Sinden ends up with, often called “fidget house,” has deep — if unintentional — connections to the big beat genre, and in particular Fatboy Slim. A set will often include a large number of anthems from a number of genres, tied together by techno made by fidget house’s main producers — Switch, Crookers and Sinden, as part of the duos Herve and Sinden, and The Count and Sinden — to name a few. The music is certain to attract a large number of people to the dance floor, but moving from techno to dubstep in a matter of minutes may lead some to leave just as quickly.
