Human Touch

Human Touch (Ethno Jazz)

Human Touch is an elevatingly innovative instrumental trio based in Athens, Greece. Their sound carries the nuances of their Greek,Irish, American and Cypriot backrounds and is a personal hybrid of universal soul. Between them they have played with Arturo Sandoval, Trilok Gurtu, Billy Cobham, Arild Anderson, Milcho Leviev, Davy Spillane, The Temptations, Barry White, The Camerata String Orchestra and others.

They have played in several international jazz and ethnic festivals in Europe, Turkey and the Balkans and have influenced whole generations of instrumentalists in Greece. Their unique multi– instrumental approach not only makes a visual impression but projects Human Touch’s limitless palette of rhythm, colour and emotional depth. Human Touch’s music is “lived” music. Each concert is its own experience and leaves its audiences uplifted and moved within. It’s no wonder they have been called “The Best Kept Musical Secret in the Balkans”.

Human Touch is:

David Lynch – Sax, Flute, Vocals, Percussion, Spontaneous Combustion
Yiotis Kiourtsoglou – Bass, Percussion, Facial Effects
Stavros Lantsias – Piano, Keyboard, Drums, Percussion, Guitar, Melodica, Curve Balls

Powered by Europe’s premier indie video games festival AMAZE., the market is a place where you can warm your cold hands on hot circuits and blowing GPU fans, where you find mysterious objects from the depth of NET and other fabricated paraphernalia of connected madness: 3d-printed characters, home-brewed experimental videogames, DIY synths, 4 dimensional board games, digital toys, robots, hacked software on worn out USB sticks, collections of love songs for your cyberboyfriend, wearables, implants, postcards from VR, magazines, tiny pieces of paper with unknown URLs, fanzines, comics, illustrations, paintings, books, clothes and food.

Berlin Sessions x Urban Spree

Welcome to our Big Night out at Urban Spree! We are welcoming you for good music, strong drinks and a unique atmosphere!

Specials
*Street Art Garden
*Yummy Foodcourt
*Gallery show
*Techno Basement

With a yet warm applause, we are welcoming the following acts to the outdoor stage.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Mawn
Mawn is the Welsh word for the first breath of the morning. For most people, that first inhalation is spent in a dream state; time spent in anticipation and lost in imagination. The titular Berlin band Mawn inspires a similar effect by blending downtempo melodies with soulful vocals and bold trip hop beats.
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Garbanotas Bosistas
The music of Garbanotas Bosistas makes people happy everywhere it goes – from the courtyards of Lithuania to the forests of Latvia, from the business districts of Estonia to the homeland of The Beatles, passing the mountains of the Balkans and conquering the lands of the vikings. Every show witnesses the miracle of dreamy neo-kraut-psychedelic flowers growing out of the amplifyers, and the bassist is still curly. Yes, Garbanotas Bosistas means just that – a curly bass player.
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Lui Dodds
Lui’s story is a story of perspectives. He moved to the UK from China when he was only nine. The diversity of the places he travelled at a young age helped Lui to grow up a keen observer. His observation and eye for detail eventually found its way into art and music, where Lui wrote about the stories that rose up in the world around him.
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Winter & Winter
Winter & Winter create atmospheric and melodic songs with a drone blues heaviness mingled with cinematic folk noir sensibilities. The band features the voices and musicianship of the half turkish brothers Deniz and Can Winter together with drummer Hotte Schulz and multi-instrumentalist Martha Rose. The guitars, cymbals, strings and beats swallow you up into warm depths filled with delays and effects.
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Pause Applause
New Zealand indie pop brotherhood Pause Applause, made the decision to leave their homeland in pursuit of new adventures 3 years ago and discovered what they were looking for amongst the creative inspirations of Berlin.
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Great Danes
Hailing from New Zealand, Chester Travis (who performs under the moniker Great Danes) has been performing internationally for the past decade. Following tours in New Zealand, Australia, the US and Europe, he released his first EP this year after recording at the famous Funkhaus studios in Berlin. Great Danes’ self titled EP features a full band, vast and lush production and includes a duet with Grammy Award winning musician Kimbra (of Gotye’s ‘Somebody I Used To Know’).
