The Field

One of modern electronic music’s most satisfying auteurs.


The sublime, minimal soundscapes of Axel Willner—aka The Field—have been wowing listeners ever since 2007, when the release of his debut album, From Here We Go Sublime, saw him hailed as a new prophet in the techno scene. A dreamy blend of beats, atmospheric electronic and snatches of 60s pop, Willner melds his complex layering of sound to blissful perfection.

Known for his playful, pop-inflected tunes, The Field’s solo show is a journey through the raw electronic side of his sound, encompassing work from From Here We Go Sublime and latest Cupid’s Head, performed live on the original hardware. Whether soaring in euphoria or throbbing with dense driving beats, the polished mastery of this singular talent is indisputable.
