Catch his rare talent live tonight with support from Joker Starr, Trademark Blud, Soloman & D7 & Ghost Town Entertainment and an equally impressive rota of accompanying DJs.

Lab 11 is a huge labyrinth full of exciting spaces for TRMNL to take over, and it’s certain to be vibrating with energy and enchanting techno rhythms on Saturday. Davide Squillace has made time in his busy schedule to bring his exciting and energetic sounds to Birmingham, playing alongside the equally impressive deep and tech house expert Matthias Tanzmann.
