// Tomoki Tamura (Holic Trax / Doublet) From Osaka //

The rare breed that is Tomoki Tamura started his journey with dance music in Japan and has come a long way since. A move to London in 2004 inaugurated a series of Holic nights that would eventually lead him to rock the floors of top London venues including Fabric, Ministry of Sound, and Plastic People. Meanwhile, he had gained enough experience and respect to earn himself a residency at the legendary club The END / AKA from 2007 until its closure in 2009.

Quickly growing to become a staple night in London’s nightlife, HOLIC continued to flourish as it brought a fresh selection of quality house and techno djs to the capital. While the party bubbled in London, it also earned permanent residency at one of Japan’s most respected clubs, Womb in Tokyo. He began to play an important roll being the main underground music ambassador connecting Tokyo to London. With immediate affect, Tomoki received the much deserved respect and started to play in all corners of the world.

Almost a decade after HOLIC’s establishment, the launch of the label HOLIC TRAX came naturally in 2012 with a release from none other than Mr. G. The label’s unique raw take on house music has earned enormous praise from underground music lovers. With releases from Tuccillo, Rick Wade, Chris Carrier, Ekkohaus & Rufus, Kate Simko, and Robert Dietz, the label has proven to follow its own taste without compromise. Tomoki is one half of Doublet, a project in collaboration with Italian Ibiza resident Tuccillo. HOLIC TRAX has been the main outlet for their unique take on raw and moody house tracks.

Although proving to be a credible producer, label owner, and promoter, he knows his records the most and is a DJ above all. He now resides in Berlin where he calls home.

Andrea Wan interview

We reproduce herebelow parts of the interview made in March 2016 by Urban Spree Resident Artist Andrea Wan to the zuccaBlogZine. After 4 years in Berlin, the talented HK-born, canadian illustrator speaks in-depth about her education, artistic path, move to Berlin, experience and techniques.

AndreaWan-zBZ-1_670

 

Berlin based Visual Artist Andrea Wan, has been an active member of the bustling Berlin art scene for the past four years. She is currently working out of the Urban Spree studios where she commits herself to the wonders of her magical ink techniques, that extend to her dreamlike themes.

zBZ // You were born in Hong Kong, China and grew up in Vancouver, Canada, can you share a bit of your experience coming to setup your new life in Berlin, Germany, for the
first time?

Andrea Wan // It was back in 2012, I decided that I wanted to move to Europe for a change but didn’t know where. After a visit to Berlin I felt that it’s a potential place to live. I told my Vancouver friend all about Berlin after my first visit here, and one month later she told me that she just quit her job and got her visa to move to Berlin. At that time she had never even been to Berlin before. So after that I made up my mind and felt that I also had to come. I initially moved here with my ex-boyfriend Cyril, who is now also my studio mate. We were really excited about moving here, we didn’t know what to expect it was kinda of a spontaneous choice. The first experiences was that it’s a huge city with a lot to offer, and everything was really new and exciting and very different from back home, just like a new playground to explore. After 4 years I still love it here and want to stay longer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

zBZ // How has the German language effected or influenced your daily life here in Berlin? How do you find Berlin as a city to live and work in?

Andrea Wan // I think because I’m a freelancer that makes it easier, to not be able to speak the language, right away and Im still in the process of learning German. It kinda gets in the way, everyday, but it’s not a huge problem for me right now.
Living and working here is very flexible because it’s a very laid back city, filled with a lot of musicians, artists, freelancers and writers. I find that this city pushes you to focus on yourself and really think about what you want, without external influences. And, also there’s a sense of freedom here. I want to be able to speak German though it’s going to take quite a while, because whilst having a job, it’s hard for me to split the time. Ideally, I would want to have proper conversations with people in German.

ogino:knauss | Re>Centering Periphery: Marginal Notes/Randbemerkungen Exhibition

“Randbemerkungen | Marginal Notes” is a photographic exhibition summarizing 8 years of urban explorations by the ogino:knauss collective into the modernist built environment. After their award-winning movies about Cuba and Moscow, the exhibition also becomes the platform to launch the new movie project about Berlin, called “Randbemerkungen”, as well as the release of travelogue books about Berlin and Cuba and the launch of “Reconnoitering Berlin“, a series of urban “dérives” that will investigate the urban identity of the Hauptstadt through multiple perspectives.

MarginalNotes_OginoKnauss_web2

For 3 weeks, Urban Spree will host an installation of printed works and videos, completed by a series of events including live concerts, talks, workshops, book presentations, screenings and performances.

About OGINO:KNAUSS
ogino:knauss is a Berlin-based, independent research group dealing with audiovisual language, urban cultures and human environment’s transformations.

R>CP PROJECT
Re:centering Periphery originated in 2006 with a live-media work commissioned by the Biennial del Arte de la Havana. Starting from Alamar, a new city built in the 70s in Cuba, the group investigated everyday life practices that inhabit, question and reinvent urban peripheries produced as a result of modernist ideology. The main outcome of the project was a film-series produced through a participative methodology. Until now the group has worked extensively in La Habana and Moscow, with the production of two films, set preparatory works and surveys in Kiev, Belgrade and Berlin; and opened up research files on such cities as Mexico City, Casablanca, Marseille, Tel Aviv, Detroit and Hong Kong. The project advancements are regularly published on the R>CP blog.

R>CP FILMS

The first film in the series “Doble Forza” (2008, 30’) tells the story of a self-constructed new city built with Soviet-style prefabricated panels in the 70’s in the outskirt of La Habana. It has been awarded with the Best International Documentary at the Istanbul Architecture Film Festival in 2008 and at Sezze Videofest.

The second episode “Dom Novogo Byta“, explores the imagined and built landscape of Moscow, confronting utopian visions which emerged in the light of the October revolution with the reality of contemporary post-communist Russia. The film takes the cue from the dilapidated Narkomfin building, a prototype for revolutionary communes designed in 1927 by Moisei Ginzburg, today facing hard survival in a central plot of land highly attractive to real-estate speculators.

During the exhibition the two films will be screened at Il Kino in Neukölln.

R>CP EXHIBITION
The exhibition displays a selection of photographs of La Habana, Moscow, Kiev, Belgrade and Berlin, capturing the urban and social landscape of modernist peripheries and the inner margins of the metropolis. The textures, geometries and patterns designed by the brutal architectural practices of the 20th century are shown alongside cracks, eruptions, signs of colonization and the re-appropriation by the everyday life.
Two video installations complete the set up, representing opposite directions of research. The first, focusing on the abstract substance of the architectural modernist vision, shows geometrical patterns and symmetries being digitally explored and transformed into a hypnotic graphic landscape. In the second work, conceived as a study for the forthcoming full-feature film, the attention is conversely shifted towards the human body- “Der Mensch, das Maß aller Dinge”, following through a longer sequence an elderly hindered man slowly crossing the streets of Berlin, Mitte. A live audiovisual performance will be presented at the opening night.

R>CP OPEN WORKSHOP
More than a showcase of past productions, the event at Urban Spree is primarily intended as a discursive platform for realising the new film project Randbemerkungen.

During these 3 weeks, a series of events will involve known as well as new collaborators of the group presenting and performing theme-related works in progress. According to the participative methodology of the group, interdisciplinary conversations, live audio video performances, live sonorisation of films, workshops of spatial assessment and dérives, will act as resource-material for the upcoming film. During the last days of the exhibition, the launch of Reconnoitering Berlin will take place, a series of urban dérives that in the following months will investigate the urban identity of Berlin according to multiple perspectives.

R>CP BOOKS
The Re:centering Periphery Travelogues is a new series of photographic essays documenting the survey into global urban peripheries done by the collective:

-La Habana InT/Ext (2006) is a 5-week diary shot in Cuba, focusing on the strong dichotomies affecting the Cuban social landscape.

The basic cinematographic dialectics interior / exterior is variously reinterpreted as centre and periphery, legal and illegal, private and public…

-Exposing Berlin, is the result of a long-term observation of the transformations of the city since 2007, when the collective moved its base. The photographic essay dedicated to Mitte and Friedrichshain points at the conflation of image and spatial production in a neo-liberal urban development. The camera investigates the attempt to reinvent a unified central identity of Berlin in the place of the fragmented urban reality which carries scars and memories of a divided past.

The R>CP Travelogues are printed in a limited edition of 200 copies, available at Urban Spree’s Bookshop.

R>CP Crowdfunding
One of the exhibition’s main purposes is to sustain the future development of the project and support the realisation of the film Berlin Randbemerkungen. In the occasion of the exhibition a crowdfunding campaign will be launched to support the pre-production work for the film. Photographic prints, silkscreen prints, books and other limited-edition products will be on sale during the events at Urban Spree.

FULL PROGRAM: The full program of events accompanying the exhibition is available here.

R>CP RANDBEMERKUNGEN is a production of Ogino Knauss and Tesserae Urban Social Research in association with Urban Spree.

Concert: Girls in Airport

 

GiA_ press photo3

 

“The result is a magical plate that oozes creativie energy.“ – GAFFA, D(…) the group’s music (…) manages to be at once urban and ancient, national and transnational, modern and traditional. (…) it is also a work that introduces a whole new sound.“ – allaboutjazz.com review of Girls in Airports (2010)

Hinter dem Namen Girls in Airports verbergen sich fünf talentierte Musiker aus Dänemark. Dort ist die junge Band bereits bestens bekannt und wurde 2010 für ihre Werke mit dem Danish Music Award in der Kategorie best cross over jazz ausgezeichnet. Im Juli 2013 erschien ihr drittes Album Kaikoura (Mawimusic).

Den Erfahrungen nach werden Girls in Airports auch diesmal mit ihrem ganz eigenen Sound glänzen. 2010 veröffentlichten Girls in Airports ihr gleichnamiges Debütalbum. Migration folgte bereits ein Jahr später.

Aus aller Welt inspiriert und gekonnt miteinander verbunden, entwickeln Girls in Airports einen ganz besonderen Sound. Eine vielfältige Mischung aus Indie, Jazz und Folk aus Skandinavien, Afrika und Asien. Im Wohnzimmer der WG von Martin Stender und Mathias Holm 2009 gegründet und mit den besten Underground Musikern Kopenhagens besetzt, blicken Girls in Airports bereits weit über den Tellerrand Dänemarks hinaus: Allein im letzten Jahr haben sie in Brasilien, den USA, Großbritannien und Portugal gespielt und gerade kamen sie von ihrer zweiten Tour durch China zurück. Die Offenheit und Neugier der Band zeigt sich in vielerlei Facetten. Sie spielten mit einheimischen Folk- Musikern in China, nehmen mit der Percussion-Legende Nereu Mocoto in Brasilien auf, spielen in Moskau im Radio und in Hong Kong ist ihre Musik Soundtrack einer TV- Wettervorhersage.

Das neue Album Kaikoura trägt den Namen einer Stadt an der felsigen Küste Neuseelands. Ein Ort, an dem sich Wale, Korallen, Fische und Seelöwen tummeln. Inspiriert von dieser beeindruckenden Umgebung versuchen Girls in Airports die persönlichen Eindrücke und Wahrnehmungen in ihrer Musik zu vereinen. Im Titelsongs verschmilzt die Rhythmsection mit einem abstrakten Beat, der von Keys und Saxofon zum Leben erweckt wird. Das Album ist der Sound einer Band, die auf einer höheren Ebene kommuniziert – eine musikalische Suite, die wortlos Leben zum Ausdruck bringt.

The photocopy club in Berlin

tumblr_n1iitfT9GK1r5o8i8o1_r1_1280

Urban Spree Gallery is thrilled to announce that The photocopy club, a London based monthly DIY exhibition created and curated by Matt Martin and featuring only photocopied/xerox photography will have a 1 night exhibition at Urban Spree on April 12th, 2014.

What The photocopy club is aiming at is to get photography off the Internet and get printed matter back into the hands of the public. Photocopying is one of the cheapest ways to get photography printed. The photocopy club exhibitions are like a giant zine that everyone can take a page from. Shows are always on one day/night only and exhibited works are sold for £5 to keep the project afloat.

After successful installations in London, Brighton, Bristol and Hong Kong, The photocopy club casts its lo-fi DIY spirit in  Berlin.

To embrace the city’s chaotic and vibrant DNA, The photocopy club is curating a no-theme open call.  Shoot, copy, send.

Details about the submission guidelines can be found on the blog here.
