Marie Davidson has spoken of her plans to retire from live club music after one final show in that vein in Montreal next month.
Taking to Instagram, she said, "I’ve been talking about it for a while and the day has come for me to depart from the club scene to explore new horizons. It’s with a lot of emotions that I present to you my last party playing live hardware club music which will take place in my home town, Montreal."
The gig, which takes place on September 20th at Studio Notre-Dame in the city under the banner of 'Save the Last Dance for Me', will see Davidson play live with support from Afrodeutsche, Kara-Lis Coverdale, Underground Resistance's Depth Charge project and more.
Davidson's work over the last few years has seen her present club culture through a critical lens, specifically across her 2018 album, 'Working Class Woman', which was released by Ninja Tune, and 2016 album 'Adieux au Dancefloor', which came out through Cititrax.
She released some of her most club-ready work yet through Ninja Tune earlier this month in the form of 'Chasing The Light', which she described as her take on trance music. That EP came backed with remixes of tracks from 'Working Class Woman' by Daniel Avery and Soulwax.
Nina Kraviz also turned in a speedy techno remix of her 'Working Class Woman' track 'Workaholic Paranoid Bitch' late last year.

I’ve been talking about it for a while and the day has come for me to depart from the club scene to explore new horizons. It’s with a lot of emotions that I present to you my last party playing live hardware club music which will take place in my home town, Montreal. I’m thrilled and honoured to share the stage with inspiring artists that I’ve had the chance to meet, share ideas and convictions through out the last few years. Everyone on the bill are outstanding musicians and human beings and I hope that you will be able to make it. . Sincerely. - Marie
