Its nearly time for the BIG techno gig of the summer in the South East, as Italian super-star DJ, Mauro Picotto, and fast rising Irish techno act, Psycatron, play for Resistance at The Forum on Saturday 14 July, with support from local lads Alan Harris and Joe Gould . The date is the first in a series of parties to celebrate 10 years of Resistance. During the last decade Resistance has brought Laurent Garnier, Jeff Mills, Timo Maas, Dave Clarke, Carl Craig, Green Velvet, Roger Sanchez, Groove Armada, Mylo, Slam, Felix Da Housecat, Erol Alkan, Steve Lawler, Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Derrick Carter, Joris Voorn, Kerri Chandler, Andrew Weatherall, Stanton Warriors, Christian Smith, James Lavelle, Phil Kieran and many more to Waterford clubs for memorable nights of partying.
Tickets for Picotto (€15) are on sale now at Next Door (Forum), 051 871111 or http://www.forumwaterford.com .Mauro Picotto first began playing records in 1984 at the age of eighteen, at a club in Piedmont. By 1988 he was a finalist in the Italian DMC and devoted much of the following year to the production of his first album as "R.A.F". Over the next few years Mauro's series of massive tracks (Bakerloo Symphony, Iguana, Komodo, Lizard) made him one of the Top 10 most popular DJs in the world. The new millennium saw a change of direction for Mauro with his new label, Alchemy, and his club brand, Meganite. The latter was a huge success in Ibiza introducing new talent like Chris Liebing, Adam Beyer and Marco Carola. More recently, Mauro released an album "2010" in that year, and secured a residency at Space (Ibiza) for their "Come Together" partys. That album and "2011" last year, confirmed that his musical taste and creativity is still spot on. Mauro has played in all the best clubs around the globe as well as prestigious events like Love Parade, Creamfields, Ultra, Time Warp and Awakenings. This will be Mauro's second performance for Resistance.
Berlin: Detroit is a musical alliance that resonates deeply with electronic music lovers around the world. Add Belfast to this equation and you have Irish duo Psycatron, who have dropped releases on both sides of the Atlantic, through Carl Craig's Planet E Communications from Detroit and Berlins' legendary Tresor imprint. Their touring schedule has followed a similar global trajectory, touching down everywhere from Fabric (London) to The Rex Club (Paris), to Movement Festival in Detroit, I Love Techno in Belgium and many more of the best clubs and festivals worldwide. With musical influences ranging from Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk to Underground Resistance and Jean Michel Jarre, it's easy to see where the raw emotion, tension and energy prevalent in their music stems from.

There is little about summit meeting that the …
