Milk Me presents: Catnapp Break Release Rave

Catnapp released her first LP “BREAK” on Monkeytown Records. The record includes collaborations with Modeselektor “The Mover”, EL PLVYBXY & Doxxed who remixed “Lengua”.

To celebrate, we planed a rave together with Catnapp & friends

CATNAPP (Monkeytown Records)
Catnapp (Amparo Battaglia Lopez) combines R&B, rap, breakbeat, pop, drum and bass and other genres resulting in an intense and nostalgic atmosphere with heavy beats

MAAY (DJ SET) is an Argentinian Dj/producer from Buenos Aires, based in Berlin. Her sets include an hybrid and deconstructed style between dark atmospheres, latin rhythms and emotional trance melodies. She started Djing in Trrueno venues and hosting different rave parties. She debuted in Berlin at Acud and recently joined Catnapp as her official DJ.

Mr. Manic (they/them/she) is a nonbinary identifying rapper, DJ, and performance from Philadelphia based in Berlin. They DJ and perform with the drag collectives House of Presents, House of Living Colors, and Venus Boys and with the spoken word performance project Queerdos. Their latest album, MKULTRAVIOLET was released in the Spring of 2019

BABii produces incredibly forward-thinking electro tinged pop/R&B which features skittering beats and incredibly thick, layered synths with heavy bass with a semi industrial feel to them. The lyrics are dark, yet the vocals are sweet and despite its incredible pop hooks the whole LP drips with a sentiment of loss and abandonment. BABii wowed SXSW this year playing 7 shows in 5 days and being compared to everyone from Grimes to FKA Twigs and while those comparisons give you a jumping off point, they also feel lazy as BABii definitely inhabits her own unique world.

Daisy Mortem (Napp Records) is the soundtrack of an erotic dream which ends in a nightclub massacre.
After they shared the stage with various artists such as The Garden, Infecticide, Jardin or C_C, and after they
opened for the whole french tour of Russian phenomena IC3PEAK, they are now ready to release their first full LP “Faits-Divers” on Napp Records (the label recently created by Catnapp), between gothic atmosphere, noisy experimentations and powerful rave anthems.

Dark Beats ~ Cold Waves

LIVE: Roberto Auser and Romance Disaster
DJ: Enfant Terrible and åtåmåtån

ROBERTO AUSER has built a name of his own with releases on Viewlexx, Pinkman and Enfant Terrible. Still he stays something like a best kept secret of the Dutch electronic music scene… this mainly due to his output which is never to be pinned to one specific genre or style… His live sets and his release have recently moved more and more into the direction of harsh pounding beats with a dark mood and industrial sounds… and even a true rave spirit… see you on the dance floor!

ROMANCE DISASTER is a Berlin based “woman-machine” live-act founded by Aga Wilk (former 77TM). The music is a blend between techno and dark electro. On stage, besides vocals, Romance Disaster uses drum machines and synthesizers, frequently changing them to make each performance special. For åtåmåtån she has released the great EP “Girls-Guns” with remixes by Millimetric and Ethan Fawkes, packed with beats, stabs and attitude.

What happens when you put together two label heads with a dark beat obsession? You get a great night of music and one hell of a party. That is what åtåmåtån and Enfant Terrible aim at with their Dark Beats ~ Cold Waves night.

This night by åtåmåtån and Enfant Terrible is a synth drive dance night, modern minded with a healthy tribute to the past, not too much looking backwards but also not moving into too much clubby techno regions, more an 80’s and 90’s vibe but also updated with nowadays dark beats.

Expect a lot of new and old EBM, elektro-wave and new beat influenced sounds. But as it is an open minded night anything with a dark beat could find its way to the floor from acid, and (early/dark) techno to elektro and industrial, as long as it’s fit for the dance floor.

ENFANT TERRIBLE is a Dutch independent record label for music and was founded in 2004. The focus is on electronic / experimental (pop) music in styles such as elektro-wave, (post-)techno and ambient. The Gooiland Elektro is known for putting out off-radar dance music and is loved by
dj’s around the world.

ÅTÅMÅTÅN is a Berlin based synth label, founded by Swedish Ella Moe. She was also part of the FlexiWave label and synth duo Colouroïd. The focus of åtåmåtån is to release limited vinyl editions made with love and a strong visual focus in tribute to the 80’s DIY scene. Hand folded, golden, risograph printed, numbered sleeve art and hand stamped or lettered labels. Sounds stretch from dark dreams to club rage.

The Black Sorrows (AU)

Einlass: 20h, Beginn: 21h.

 


Roots-Music Fans in Deutschland, heißet die BLACK SORROWS willkommen, besucht eines der anstehenden Konzerte und besorgt euch das neue Album “Citizen John”. Es lohnt sich.

THE BLACK SORROWS – CITIZEN JOHN – CD-Review:
Wenn ein ausgewiesenes Musikfachmagazin wie der “Rolling Stone” (in diesem Falle die australische Variante) einen verdienten Musiker aus ‘down under’ zur sogenannten “living legend” ausruft und kürt, steckt nicht bloße journalistische Effekthascherei dahinter, sondern eine eine jahrzehntelange, wertvolle musikalische Arbeit, die danach schreit gehört zu werden.

Insofern darf man Mr. Joe Camilleri, dem Mastermind und einzigen Urmitglied der schon seit 1984 existierenden Roots-Music-Truppe THE BLACK SORROWS zu dieser Ehrung gratulieren und sich aufrichtig darüber freuen, dass ein in Deutschland sträflich unterbewerteter und letztendlich meist nur von echten Musik-Freaks zur Kenntnis genommener Songwriter, Gitarrist, Saxofonist und vor allen Dingen famoser Sänger sich nun anschickt endlich einmal – und das nach über zwanzig Alben – unsere deutschen Bühnen zu beehren. Diese gute Gelegenheit wird sich wahrscheinlich nicht mehr allzu häufig ergeben, denn immerhin zählt Joe Camilleri inzwischen auch schon 70 Lenze.

Das engagierte schwäbische Plattenlabel Blue Rose Records veröffentlicht dieser Tage das – man höre und staune – einundzwanzigste Album der THE BLACK SORROWS und schickt die musikalischen Helden von der anderen Hälfte der Erde auf eine ausgedehnte Deutschland-Tour durch ausgesuchte, ja, meist kleinere Clubs, die es dem geneigten Fan ermöglichen wird, die bekanntermaßen heiße und vibrierende Live-Show der Aussie-Jungs hautnah zu erleben. Alles andere als eines der Konzerte zu besuchen, käme einer Schande gleich.

Das brandneue Album, das Camilleri mit im Gepäck haben wird, titelt relativ unspektakulär “Citizen John” und bietet die seit Jahrzehnten bewährte und beliebte Mischung aus roots-getränktem Rhythm & Blues, Southern Soul, Folk, Gospel und Blues mit einer gelegentlichen Prise unaufdringlicher Pop-Leichtigkeit.

Das von Joe Camilleri und seinem Keyboarder John McAll gemeinsam produzierte “Citizen John” präsentiert uns dreizehn frische, ohne Firlefanz und “down to earth” in Szene gesetzte Eigenkompositionen, die mit zwei ausgesuchten Covernummern von Bob Dylan (>Silvio<) und Nina Simone (>Do I Move You<) stilvoll ergänzt werden.

Camilleri und sein langjähriger Songwriting-Partner Nick Smith genießen es einmal mehr, dem Hörer eine musikalische Welt zu offenbaren, die von großartigen Künstlern wie J.J. Cale, Van Morrison, Dr. John, Leon Russel, Allen Toussaint, Delbert McClinton, Mink DeVille und Muddy Waters inspiriert wird und uns eine wunderbare und im höchsten Maße unterhaltsame Roots-Music Rundreise bietet, die an Stil und Niveau ihresgleichen sucht.

Rood Woof Records presents: All The Ghosts and special guests

ROOD WOOF RECORDS PRESENTS

ALL THE GHOSTS

All The Ghosts is a Berlin based Dark-rock/ Post-punk band formed in 2014 by Janiko Stolar and Deni Pavicic. Stolar’s profound Nico-esque vocals combined with Pavicic’s dark melancholy rapid guitar riffing revealed a perfect match. After performing an exclusive show for the couture clothing label ‘Kaviar Gauche’ and presenting their debut single ‘Watch Me Dance’, the band played at sold out venues as Urban Spree, Magnet Club and Berghain Kantine (w/ White Hills/ Sunflower Bean). Now being in the studio recording their first album, the bands haunting melodies and sonic assault of the senses will be sure to reach you at thier upcoming live shows.

THE SPINNING LAMPS

The Spinning Lamps recorded their debut LP with Gordon Raphael, producer of The Strokes first two albums ‘This Is It’ and ‘Room On Fire’. After supporting bands such as Carl Barat and the Jackals, Tomorrow Tulips, Quilt and The Shivas the bands new EP is being released on Rood Woof Records in the summer of ‘17. Drawing influence from groups such as The Velvet Underground and The Doors The Spinning Lamps re-create that organ driven melodic sound of the sixties.

THE VICTORIOUS SECRETS
A Berlin based monsters! Bashing tunes and upfront adittude!
Join and break the stage with them!

JAMES MICHAEL RODGERS

Scottish singer/songwriter James Michael Rodgers has recently released his debut record “Shame to be alive” with a voice compared to Van Morrison and the songwriting of an old soul steeped in the blues and folk of the 60’s. He has been slowly making his way around Europe and now residing in Berlin.
