VF#5 Dame Area // Jean-Luc // Andrew Claristidge (dj set)

++++ SOUND OF MACHINES, VOCAL CHORDS AND INSTRUMENTS PLAYED BY HUMANS •̀.̫•́✧ ++++

Dame Area (Barcelona, Spain)
Listen 🔪https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tD9KRnOXfMM
Dame Area mixes synths and live percussion, industrialism and tribalism. Their music works as a musical Rorscharch test: some people call them Tribal Wave, others Latin EBM, some say they do pure Krautrock some say that they do Industrial Postpunk.
Their music has been played in the sets of some of the bravest DJs out there including The Hacker, Identified Patient, Vladimir Ivkovic, Yamatsuka Eye (Boredoms) or Tommy Tokyo (Group A) among others.

Jean-Luc (France, Suisse)
Listen 🔪 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPRFiS65Nmo
– Jean-Luc is a Berlin-Fribourg-Vienna based band, even though Jean-Luc might be french.
– Jean-Luc doesn’t like clichés, that’s why it’s impossible to find one of him on the web.
– Jean-Luc’s big toenail dug a hole through the fabrik of his right espadrille while dancing drunk in the Spartacus in 1994 to a song from Beate Bartel and Chrislo Haas. Instead of sewing it up, Jean-Luc hang the espadrille to his wall as a reminder to do a hommage to that song one day.

Andrew Claristidge (Berlin)
Listen 🔪 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d14O1-MWFR4
French Dj Andrew Claristidge (Acid Washed) oscillates without any frontiers, from Techno to Pop, Ambient to Electro and Psychedelic experiments to New Wave. A Member of Mount Kismet, his new band, the trio just released on Moscoman’s imprint: Disco Halal. Andrew has also an upcoming track in collaboration with Cosmo Vitelli on I’m a Cliché Compilation “Bongo Beats & Bankruptcy: The Sound of I’m a Cliché”

Blind Delon, H ø R D, Leere live + after party Herzschlag

BLIND DELON

Founded in 2016 by Mathis Kolkoz and after releasing several works on Oráculo Records / Bordello A Parigi and some DJ sets around Europe, Blind Delon raised to a multi-art project (3 musicians and a visual composition by the french artist AFB).

With their heads and bags filled with synthesizers from a time they weren’t even born, the band can be found today between a record shop and a cave rave, looking for an aesthetic that is nowhere near dying. Post-Synthwave might be the best words to qualify the project, as the music is a sort of breed between outrageous Pop and cold basslines.

Building a bridge between Pop and Rave music, Blind Delon is making a NOT conventional yet romantic Post-Punk sound.

H ø R D

H ø r d creates electronic music inspired by coldwave, soundtracks, fantasy movies, oscillating between epic compositions, EBM and techno pulse, and also more contemplative tracks.

After performances on his own musical territory, he gradually came to the European synth wave scene, signing a remix for Winter Severity Index (Rome) and performing live in Germany (Wave Gotik Treffen), Belgium, Czech Republic, Swiss, Malta, Italia, Austria, Spain.

His first album “Focus on light” was released 2016 on Anton Maiiovi’s label Giallo Disco Records, and sold out 6 weeks later.
In 2017, his third EP «Futures» is out on Sacred Court, label of electronic artist SNTS.

His upcoming second LP will be out in Avant! Records in September, 2018.

«The label Giallo Disco Records have described the music as “Reverb-Soaked Urban-Gothic Melancholic songs, between synth-shoegaze and violent EBM,” and believe the album will “will resonate strongly with fans of Pornography-era The Cure, Joy Division and classic Nine Inch Nails.” To our ears we hear strains of early Tropic of Cancer and dare we say Pet Shop Boys, and overall, as you’ll be able to tell from the album preview below, it’s a well informed reincarnation of what makes the synth, minimal and no wave genres so appealing today.» JUNO DOWNLOAD (2016)

LEERE

We come from nowhere and move towards emptiness.
Leere is an introvert musical project, trying to express and fill the emptiness inside us. The use of analog and digital sounds of the 80s and the integration of sounds from Berlin, the city that influences her and her music strongly, helps her with that hard task.

“Berlin Calling” Book Launch Party and Discussion

The American, Berlin-based author Paul Hockenos will present his latest book Berlin Calling: A Story of Anarchy, Music, the Wall and the Birth of the New Berlin (The New Press) at Urban Spree Galerie on June 17, 2017.

An exhilarating journey through the subcultures, occupied squats, and late-night scenes in the anarchic first few years of Berlin after the fall of the wall Berlin Calling is a gripping account of the 1989 “peaceful revolution” in East Germany that upended communism and the tumultuous years of artistic ferment, political improvisation, and pirate utopias that followed. It’s the story of a newly undivided Berlin when protest and punk rock, bohemia and direct democracy, techno and free theater were the order of the day.

In a story stocked with fascinating characters from Berlin’s highly politicized undergrounds—including playwright Heiner Müller, cult figure Blixa Bargeld of the industrial band Einstürzende Neubauten, the internationally known French Wall artist Thierry Noir, the American multimedia artist Danielle de Picciotto (founder of Love Parade), and David Bowie during his Ziggy Stardust incarnation—Hockenos argues that the DIY energy and raw urban vibe of the early 1990s shaped the new Berlin and still pulses through the city today.

Just as Mike Davis captured Los Angeles in his City of Quartz, Berlin Calling is a unique account of how Berlin became hip, and of why it continues to attract creative types from the world over.

Paul Hockenos is an American journalist and author who writes for The Nation, the Chronicle of Higher Education, Foreign Policy, the New York Times, and many other media outlets. He has held prize fellowships with the American Academy in Berlin, the European Journalism College, the German Marshall Fund of the United States, and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. He is the author of three books, including Joschka Fischer and the Making of the Berlin Republic, and lives in Berlin.

“Can unruly artists change the world? Or do they just provide the soundtrack to history? The Berlin of the 1980s is famous for two things: a wild counterculture and the surprising end of the Cold War. Paul Hockenos, who knows the city inside out, brings them together in a fast-paced, sometimes astonishing story of underground clubs, squatters, and dissidents.” Brian Ladd, author of The Ghosts of Berlin.
