No thrones. No empires. Just Dooom. Waking up two monolithic beasts in the catacombs of Urban Spree. Reaching for the dead:

FFO: Sleep, Yob, Acid King, Suma, Ufomammut, Conan, Pyramido

There are new. And they are monster. Majestic and meditative the four heavy downtuned monolithic songs on their brand new self-titled debut LP gonna rip your beautiful mind – waking you up from mass hypnosis we call society. Or how the band says: “We adapt our minds to someone elses vision of a life, that clearly doesn’t benefit anyone but the ones on top of the pyramid. And since we’re taught that this is the only way of living, kicking downwards and licking upwards, we waste our golden years at some worthless job, to save up some worthless money and buy amplifiers so that we can express how much we fucking hate everything”. We are psyched to present their first live appearance in Germany!

Huge and evil. Having played quiet some gigs in Berlin and (i.a. with Black Pyramid, Pelican & Torche, Karma to Burn, at Swamp Fest, at several Dustown events, at Rotormania) this heavy force of four androids is pretty well-know in the local Doom (and) Metal scene.

DIONYSIAN DRONE FESTIVAL

DIONYSIAN DRONE FESTIVAL

You can buy tickets on koka36!

For the first time in Berlin
A celebration of drone music and one of its ancient origins

The ecstatic and transcendental nature of drone melodies and repetitive rhythmic structures in music have always been considered a compelling means of mesmerizing and elevating the human spirit and have been present from ancient times to our days in various psychedelic and ethnic musical trends.

Tracing the origins of such traditions, the Dionysian Drone Festival offers its visitors the rare opportunity to experience music from the remote Greek islands of Crete and Karpathos, as well as music from the Black Sea. Leaving laptops and electronic instruments behind, the featured musicians will make use of the tsambouna (a kind of greek bagpipe), the lyra (a bowed three-string instrument), the laouto (a long-neck fretted instrument of the lute family) and large frame drums, to recreate this music as it is still practiced in those distant territories.

Inspired by the god of wine and ritual madness, the Dionysian Music Festival will present in the garden setting of Urban Spree music without boundaries or time limits.

Crete
DAULUTE
Daulute is a world music trio that presents a unique and dynamic interpretation of Cretan traditional music. It combines traditional instruments from the Eastern Mediterranean with Western whistles and the flute. Improvising on Greek traditional material the trio endeavours to develop an alternative sound style.
IOANNIS PAPATZANIS
DIMITRIOS SIDERIS
GEORGIOS ZACHARIOUDAKIS

 

Karpathos
THE MESOCHORIANS
The Mesochorians is a band performing for the first time in Germany, the traditional tunes (skopous) from the remote island of Karpathos, where music is an everyday life necessity. One of the few performed without percussion instruments, the style involves a continuous improvisation, by shifting within hundreds of drone melodies and creating new ones of changing rhythmic frequencies , of improvised rimes and real dialogues between the musicians and the singers. The sessions are very long middling on 10 hours and are always accompanied by dancers.
GIANNIS SARRIS (lyra)
NIKOS LYKOS (tsambouna)
FOTIS LYKOS (laouto)
LYTOS GIANNIS (laouto)
+special guest star**

 

Black Sea
PAVLOS TSAVDARIDIS & FRIENDS
This is a local Berlin band playing traditional music that comes from the Greek inhabitants of the Black sea, now Georgia. Another remote area with a different type of lyra instrument, bagpipes and flutes whose music style is rooted both in the ancient Greek and Byzantine heritage. A very strong style with characteristic percussion rhythms and immense melodic speed but also of dramatic tale singing. The dances of this area are some of the most complicated in Greek culture and are exciting to experience.
PAVLOS TSAVDARIDIS (lyra)
XRISTOS SAVIDIS (ageio/gaida – gavali)
CHARITON TRIANTAFYLIDIS (dauli)

Berlin
FLOWERKRAUT
A travelling musician currently based in Berlin, focusing on traditional European dance and folk music. His main instrument is hurdy-gurdy, a rarely-heard instrument nowadays with multiple drone strings which give a constant pitch accompaniment to the melody, resulting in a sound similar to that of bagpipes. He also plays the fiddle and the flute.

 

Istanbul
ERMAN BÖLÜKCÜ
We met this young fellow in Neukölln, playing a kanun (zither) on the street just one week after he arrived in Berlin. He performed with virtuosity and passion, so we are very excited to have him onboard and jamming with other artists.

Music: // Cold Wave // Minimal Synth // EBM // Industrial

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

Vomito Negro

The band already took off way back in 1982, and over the past years established a name for themselves as uncompromising aural architects, combining power with emotion, electro with vision.
From the start on, flexibility is one of their major qualities.
Vomito Negro is never content with a certain formula: their musical approach, essentially based on the European “Industrialist” tradition of the early eighties, takes a different angle with every record.
Tracing back their history through albums as diverse as “Vomito Negro” (their haunting debut from 1985) to “Wake Up” (1992) one hears growth and evolution in Vomito Negro”s varied soundscapes.
Vomito Negro’s synthesized psychodramas range from danceable to contemplative, from instrumental and ambient to voice-ridden and brutal. Live Vomito Negro stands for a never seen punch of electro power, hammering sequences, pumping live percussion, harsh synths, and vocals that will blow your brain out.

Kris Baha

Much time has passed since Kris Baha swapped the parched red earth and searing midday sun of the Australian outback for the brutalist buildings, communist-era apartment blocks and slate-grey skies of East Berlin.
Now firmly embedded in his adopted city, Baha bas become known for a trademark DJ and production style inspired by sun-baked hallucinatory visions and the clandestine, concrete-clad industrial hum of the metropolis after dark.
Just before the end of 2018, Kris Baha released his EP – “In Your Arms”, a record filled with restless melancholy, chopped beats, sinister frequencies and dramatic twists.

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

She Lost Kontrol
She Lost Kontrol (SLK) is an independent record label founded in August 2016 somewhere between Naples and Berlin.
The label is focused on Electronic Body Music // New wave // Synth Wave // Dark wave // Neo Folk // Industrial // Experimental // Drone // Noise // Avantgarde.

Herzschlag
Herzschlag is a Berlin based event / party organization born in 2014, bringing the finest selections of Cold Wave, Post-Punk, Minimal Synth and EBM.
Herzschlag greets every sound emerging out of the dark, industrial, future-noir, technical dystopia.

Kælan Mikla + Some Ember live

[aufnahme + wiedergabe] presents:

Kælan Mikla live
[ISL, Artoffact Records / Fabrika Rec]
www.kaelanmikla.bandcamp.com 

Icelandic post-punk meets death-synth trio Kælan Mikla returns for the group’s third album, Nótt Eftir Nótt.

Topping a year that catapulted the band onto stages shared with the likes of The Cure and Placebo, Nótt Eftir Nótt is Kælan Mikla at their most confident, and their most deadly. It’s been five years since Margrét Rósa Dóru-Harrysdóttir, Laufey Soffia, and Sólveig Matthildur Kristjánsdóttir formed the band in Reykjavik, but after several tours and high-profiles stages, as well as two critically-acclaimed albums, Kælan Mikla has brought their A-game in a big way.

Starting off quietly with a creepy, gothed-out ethereal intro, Nótt Eftir Nótt erupts with post-punk brilliance and synthlines that harken back to the bad old days of the Batcave, big hair, and Egyptian-inspired eye-liner. Tracks like the melancholy “Hvernig kemst ég upp?” are wonderfully delightful, while the band goes for the big goth dance number on “Skuggadans,” succeeding with glorious ease. Near the end of Nótt Eftir Nótt, when you’ve already ingested a healthy dose of Diamanda Galas meets The Birthday Party, the title track, produced by popular Icelandic electronic wizard Bang Gang, is basically perfect.

Hot on the heels of shows at Roadburn, Meltdown, and The Cure’s 40th Anniversary, as well as a Fall tour supporting King Dude, Kælan Mikla are set to take their place as one of darkest aural poets on the world stage.

Some Ember live
[US, Third Coming Records]
www.someember.bandcamp.com 

SUBMERGING THE SUN, the second LP by Some Ember, is a journal of climatological grief, intimate vulnerability, and transcendental sadness. Self-produced by songwriter Dylan Travis, the record’s sparse arrangements are weighted by bleak ambience and dramatic vocal turns. Icy synthesizers pierce veils of fog-like drones, delivering sorrow and catharsis. Tides of dissonance ebb to reveal glittering mirages of hope, which are just as soon swept away.

Long a fixture of the Oakland, CA musical underground, Some Ember has seen many forms – a solo dream pop bedroom project, a four-piece goth rock outfit, then a hardware-based synth duo, and now a solo performance project once more. Following cassettes on Crash Symbols, Night-People and Ascetic House, the band released their first LP on Dream in 2014. In 2015, Travis and longtime collaborator Nina Chase made the move to Berlin. After a tumultuous two years (which saw a further cassette released on Dream, “DEBTS OF LOVE”), the band will release SUBMERGING THE SUN, as well as a companion cassette EP, SUBMERGED, on Third Coming Records in November 2018.
