HEADZ UP Vol. XXXVIII | THRONELESS & ANDROID EMPIRE

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.

Nadja • Some Became Hollow Tubes • A-Sun Amissa

obnoxious ouroboros & gizeh records
presents

⊙ NADJA ⊙
Nadja (Aidan Baker & Leah Buckareff) create music that has been variously described as drone metal, ambient doom, and shoegaze, combining soundscapes, electronics, & atmospheric vocals, tempering the cacophony with an ethereal melodicism such that the listener is enveloped in a sublimating wall of amorphous sound. Nadja began in 2005 in Toronto, Canada & is currently based in Berlin, Germany.

⊙ SOME BECAME HOLLOW TUBES ⊙
A new project combining the talents of two of the finest producers of noise out there. Eric Quach (THISQUIETARMY, etc)’s looping layers of instrumentation give their music an ominous air but with the drumming of GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR and EXHAUST’s Aidan Girt sitting underneath it, their music has a familiarity that’s hard to shake even when hearing it for the first time. Industrial landscapes flicker before your mind’s eye and crumble again, and tension stretches time to the point where you’re not quite sure how long you’ve been listening.

⊙ A-SUN AMISSA ⊙
A-Sun Amissa is a music collective founded and led by Richard Knox (The Eternal Return Arkestra, The Rustle of the Stars, Shield Patterns, Glissando) that has featured an array of members and collaborators since it’s formation in 2011. Their sound touches on elements of post-rock, doom, dark-jazz and heavy drone. Recorded output has been released on Richard’s own Gizeh label as well as Belgium’s Consouling Sounds.
Live, the set-up can range from a solo performance to a full band show. Dense and heavy atmospheres provide the backdrop to the sound. Layers of mournful, melancholic and ethereal melodies weave amongst the thundering beats, deep drones and intense, heaving guitars.

Trashfest 10th Anniversary

It is with with great joy, honour and anticipation that we announce the 10th Anniversary of Berlin’s weirdest, wildest, and most legendary festival, TRASHFEST.

FULL LINEUP ANNOUNCED:

BANDS:
Freak de l’Afrique (Berlin/ Man Recordings)
Conjunto Papa Upa (Venezuela/Amsterdam, Names You Can Trust)
Scúru Fitchádu (Cabo Verde/Lisbon)
Mfa Kera and Mike Russell’s Black Heritage (Madagascar/USA/Berlin)
Conjunto Vaya Nacho (Berlin)

DJS:
Dj Anacaona (Caracas)
j.do rio aka João Xavi (Rio de Janeiro)
Sigourney Skywalker (Berlin)
Dj Andi Stetcher aka Schladi Schladez (Berlin)
Mohair Sam (Thessaloniki)
Mayo-Ra (Spaghetti Western)
Send the Friend (Thessaloniki)
NESTA (PT)
Jimmy Trash (AUS)

Freak de l’Afrique is a Berlin based collective of Djs, Mcs and dancers who share a passion for modern African Club sounds. They are an energy EXPLOSION and full of legendary creatives and have worked alongside Goethe Institute and Redbull to be able to tour East Africa and Europe and spread their floor burning vibes.

Conjunto Papa Upa is the latest band by “The Hardest Working Man in Tropical Music” Alex Figueira (Fumaça Preta, Music With Soul, VintageVoudou), alongside percussion meister Gerardo Rosales. Papa Upa is a latin rhythm machine, dipping into the grooviest parts of Venezuelan Afro, Salsa and Carribean heritage and then wrung through the psychedelic and dj culture processor you can expect from a Names You Can Trust band.

Scúru Fitchádu
Mixing anti-colonial punk politics, live and programmed drums and exceptional stage shows with the ancient rhythms of funana, the outlawed and ancient music from Cabo Verde, Scuru Fitchadu feels like Death Grips if they grew up inthe island pennisula…..It’s their first gig in Berlin and we are honoured to host them.

Mfa Kera with Mike Russell and Black Heritage
Some years ago I was digging in Amsterdam and found an amazing LP with an astonishing face of the artist on the front cover. It was the amazing Mfa Kera, who I interpreted to be something like a Madagascan answer to Nina Hagen…. and it quickly became my favourite new wave album of all time. A little investigation found she was living in Berlin, and still going very strong with many musical and artistic projects. I’ll post more of this story later but for now, I am BURSTING to present to our Trashfest audience, MFA KERA will be performing with a full afrobeat band!!!

Conjunto Vaya Nacho This Band is based on the affection of Colombian Vallenato Music. Rocking an accordeon, bass, 1973 drum machine and guest singers, we are very happy to have these locals join us.

j.do Rio aka João Xavi
I have a perverse pleasure in the wild in-yo-face electric boogaloo of 80s-90s Baille Funk and Miami Bass, so I personally invited specialist J.do Rio aka João Xavi of Batuque Lowfi. He has made a mix just for us, listen and wig out and understand how fun this will be in the Urban Spree basement on the night of Trashfest !!!

Dj Anacaona is also a Venezuelan émigré to Berlin’s tropical music scene with connections to the La Regla Party here. After being in all of the rebellious music scenes of vibrant Caracas; Hardcore, Reggae, Hip Hop – she brings the same attitude to her heavy bomb salsa mixes which you have to hear to believe.

Dj Andi Stetcher (Schladi Schladez)
Andi Stecher is an austrian born and berlin based drummer and electronic musicia and DJ Andi Stechers music is not drawn to one specific genre. He refers to a variety of styles of music in his pieces and therefore forms a very unique hybrid sound. His music is often interspersed with polyrhythmic elements, field recordings, coupled with drones, subbass, analog electronics and electroacoustic elements.

We are deeply indebted to Musicboard Berlin for helping us to set up this incredible event, as well as our longterm partners Urban Spree.
