Oscillate Sound System
Oscillate is a Birmingham based electronic music club which began in the ’90s, featuring HIA and the Oscillate Sound System, plus performances by invited guests.
Oscillate provided an exceptional environment for live electronic music and played a pivotal role in supporting this emerging art form in the ’90s.
Acts then little known outside of the global techno underground of the time travelled from around the world to play. Music enthusiasts and party people came from across the UK to participate.
Oscillate highlighted Birmingham as a significant cultural hub during this period by providing “An oasis of experimentation … within a post industrial wasteland.” Oli Warwick / Tim Rockins, Red Bull Music Academy 2017).
Oscillate continues to put on occasional high quality events, for special occasions, in special spaces.
“To those in the know, including the 650 clubbers who frequent the club in Birmingham every other Friday night, Oscillate is the club of the moment, making waves far beyond the Midlands and attracting clubbers from as far afield as Manchester, London and Edinburgh.”
