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

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.

BOBBY WOULD (Low Company, UK) & Regret

BOBBY WOULD + Family (de, cz, isr, at)

“”IT’S HAPPENING TO YOU, AGAIN…” Lovelorn, tranq’d-out, majestically understated rok y roll lullabies and dub-pocked, acid-damaged, pain’-it-dark drone-punk from Robert P. of Heavy Metal and Muscle Barbie++, coming over like some celestial 4AM face-off between George Harrassment, The Great Unwashed and Can. Gulp. Yeah this is a record so patently, self-evidently brilliant that we have to stop ourselves from calling it an instant classic (oops). There are some affinities with the homesick jangle of Itchy Bugger’s Done One, an album which R. played on (and painted the cover for), and the songs sure are pretty (find me a more romantic refrain in 2019 than ‘Luna”s “You and me / shivering in the street”), but Baby feels like more of a TRIP, as if some 23rd century Martian moptop-pop combo crash-landed at a dosed up Kensington houseparty circa ’66, plugged in their gear and got stuck right in: hypnotic space-guitar ultra-reverberant and in a permanent state of comedown/dissolve, choppy death-surf riffs and gently weeping leads ringing into infinity, squeezed and smeared for every last trace of scorch and sting…wooiii!

There are some echoes too of banner UK DIY/squat-wave and the mildewed NZ psych of the Spies and the Renderers, but all shot through with a kinda Teutonic sensibility/rigour, loopy and ultra-repetitive – equal debts to the full-throttle drainpiped psycho-beat of 39 Clocks’ ‘Dom’ and the glacial ambient-glam sampledelia of Love Inc.’s ‘Life’s A Gas’ (!). Rare to encounter a record as simultaneously heart-rending, sonically intrepid and effortlessly SWINGING as this. Couldn’t be more in love.”

⊙ BIG ‡ BRAVE ⊙
Southern Lord Records
In existence since 2012 with members Robin Wattie, Mathieu Ball and Louis-Alexandre Beauregard spread across two guitars and drums respectively, BIG|BRAVE sound many magnitudes bigger than one would suspect a trio is capable of. Anticipation gracefully helps to build up every salvo launched by the band, assaulting the eardrum with incredible precision. Their compositions increasingly more refined, juxtaposing sparse minimalism with thunderous feedback, BIG|BRAVE strives to continue pushing the limits of what heavy experimental rock can sound like while maintaining a strong interest in reaching bliss.
Somewhere between the margins of a minimal rock band, experimental outfit and drone aficionados, BIG|BRAVE strives to never belong to anyone given classification. Utilising standard “band” tools such vocals, electric guitars, drums, feedback and amplifiers, B|B explores the possibilities of what a band can sound like while constantly resisting and deconstructing the archetypal characterisations of song structure and form.
Building spectacular, inverted rock constructions that sound many magnitudes bigger than one would suspect a trio was capable of, Montreal’s BIG|BRAVE has been in existence since 2012, with members spread across two guitars and drums respectively. Unhurried and untouchable, BIG|BRAVEpossess that same valued independent spirit which pervades their local contemporaries, and is at the root of their intense and exploratory musical offerings. Their sound lulls and lurches between passages of rhythmic noise pollution and vocal led awe, using considered juxtapositions of force and restraint to warp the senses. Remarkably quiet at times, their ambiance is not one of minimalism, but of dawning, foreboding power with the need to be vented, and when the hot flushes of blighted percussion and monochromatic guitar scrapes arrive, they arrive with triumphant force.

⊙ MY DISCO ⊙
Temporary Residence / Downwards Records
MY DISCO is an Australian music group that was formed between long term 2018 collaborators, Rohan Rebeiro, Benjamin Andrews, and Liam Andrews in 2003.
In 2003, MY DISCO performed their first shows in unconventional all-ages venues in Melbourne.
Late 2003 saw the release of their debut 7″ and marked their first Australian tour. The band soon became renowned for their arduous tour ethic, demonstrated in extensive tours to often far to reach destinations that included remote areas of Australia, Southeast Asia and Mexico.
The release of their debut album ‘Cancer’ in late 2006 marked a new level of emphasis on minimalism. More international and national tours were undertaken, including additional tours to the United States, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
Their second album ‘Paradise’ was recorded in Chicago, Illinois in 2007 with Steve Albini at his studio Electrical Audio. The album is noted as the band’s most refined and minimalist release, capturing their stentorian live sound, with several songs consisting of one note, repetitive single-sentence vocals and long- sustained guitar chords. Drum patterns, although minimal, still offer dance-like, disjointed beats.
2010 saw the release of a new single called “Young”, a limited edition 12″ released through Mistletone Records and re-issue through Blast First Petite, as a lead up to their third and forthcoming album.
2010 Saw the release of the band’s third and most diverse album, ‘Little Joy.’ Their first signing to NYC acclaimed label, Temporary Residence Limited.
2012 MY DISCO released another limited 12″, this time World Wide through Temporary Residence Ltd, entitled “Wrapped Coast.” The record features two extensive racks, with remixes by London’s Factory Floor, and Birmingham based noise-maker Justin Broadrick.
On International Record Store Day in 2013, the band put out a single on one of the World’s most acclaimed independent labels, Sub Pop records. It featured as the label’s 1000th release.
2014/15 saw the band put the finishing touches on their fourth studio album, entitled “Severe” and once again working with Producer and friend Cornel Wilzcek at Electric Dreams Studios in South Melbourne.

⊙ NONN ⊙
Fuzz Club Records
The debut from NONN was a stark collection of minimalistic post-punk that marked him as one of the most exciting outputs in the dark Scandinavian scene. After touring the record across Europe and recruiting a full band, the project is back with its second album, XVII, due for release December 7th on Fuzz Club.
Now more of a collaborative effort, with Hannes Nyling and Christian’s brother Alexander joining the fold, the new record deals in a fuller more refined sound and packs a far heftier punch. Where the self-titled debut was a restrained, minimalist affair, XVII opts for slabs of industrial electronics and hard-hitting percussion. The gloomy 80s sensibilities are still there – see the occasional Cure-esque guitars and morose gothic vocals – but on XVII, NONN turn their eyes more towards the electronic affliction of EBM and synth-punk than the polished, more-digestible post-punk that came reverberating out of the decade.
This shift in the band’s sound all boils down to having to reinvent the songs when taking them on the road following the release of their debut, which saw them tour the UK and mainland Europe and play at a number of festivals; from Liverpool Psych Fest and Fuzz Club Eindhoven to, more recently, Endless Daze in South Africa. “Since the last record we’ve been doing a lot of shows which gave us a lot of inspiration. We reworked the old songs to sound a bit fuller and more fun to play live. Having to reinvent all the sounds and instruments from the first album really inspired the direction on XVII,” Christian remarks.
It’s clear that taking the project on the road with a full-band has had a notable effect. Tracks like ‘Clear’, ‘Home’ and ‘Beyond’ see NONN shift their bleak, darkwave-inflected post-punk into something far richer. It’s still got that minimalistic feel and the ear-worm melodies are still there, but it’s more sinister and fleshed out. Though, what truly sets this album apart from the debut is where the band have delved deeper into their electronic side. The industrial stomp of album-opener ‘Pray’ declares the LP’s merciless intent without a guitar in sight; it’s a destructive cut of throbbing synths and desolate drum machine, underpinned by Christian’s monotonous vocals. Partner that with the sparse, haunting electronics of ‘Believe’ and the mechanical synth-punk of ‘Hide’ and it’s clear that NONN are at their best when truly embracing their deeply-cherished Moog Sub Phatty, using it to exorcise the many demons lurking beneath the noise.
