Marina Zumi: Techno Poetry

Urban Spree Galerie is proud to invite the Argentinian street, light and visual artist Marina Zumi for her first solo show with Urban Spree Galerie. The exhibition’s Opening on September 12th coincides with the closing ceremony of the Berlin UrbanArtWeek.

On this occasion, the Berlin-based artist will create an ambitious presentation of new works on canvas in the gallery space as well as a special immersive light installation in our newly created dark room. Last but not the least, Marina will paint the Urban Spree Artist Wall.

 

There´s no light without shadows – always in pairs, always in conflict and often deceptive.
In her work Zumi lives the apparent polarity of the two worlds. The refraction of her crystals, the world of the Shadowen just before the sunrise and her technocratic light installations, address the duel between progress and poetry.

“Techno Poetry” is a snapshot of this artistic balancing act. Marina Zumi can not be an artist without becoming a mathematician. In her creation, technology is much more of a continuation than an exclusion of the poetic.
Thus works have been created that are hermaphrodites between the two poles, seemingly from another lifetime.

// Tomoki Tamura (Holic Trax / Doublet) From Osaka //

The rare breed that is Tomoki Tamura started his journey with dance music in Japan and has come a long way since. A move to London in 2004 inaugurated a series of Holic nights that would eventually lead him to rock the floors of top London venues including Fabric, Ministry of Sound, and Plastic People. Meanwhile, he had gained enough experience and respect to earn himself a residency at the legendary club The END / AKA from 2007 until its closure in 2009.

Quickly growing to become a staple night in London’s nightlife, HOLIC continued to flourish as it brought a fresh selection of quality house and techno djs to the capital. While the party bubbled in London, it also earned permanent residency at one of Japan’s most respected clubs, Womb in Tokyo. He began to play an important roll being the main underground music ambassador connecting Tokyo to London. With immediate affect, Tomoki received the much deserved respect and started to play in all corners of the world.

Almost a decade after HOLIC’s establishment, the launch of the label HOLIC TRAX came naturally in 2012 with a release from none other than Mr. G. The label’s unique raw take on house music has earned enormous praise from underground music lovers. With releases from Tuccillo, Rick Wade, Chris Carrier, Ekkohaus & Rufus, Kate Simko, and Robert Dietz, the label has proven to follow its own taste without compromise. Tomoki is one half of Doublet, a project in collaboration with Italian Ibiza resident Tuccillo. HOLIC TRAX has been the main outlet for their unique take on raw and moody house tracks.

Although proving to be a credible producer, label owner, and promoter, he knows his records the most and is a DJ above all. He now resides in Berlin where he calls home.

Büaladh | Techno. Noise. Kitchen Sync

bualadh

Büaladh returns with an absolute whopper line up and brand new venue. More of those underground vibes emanating deep within the bowels of Urban Spree’s basement.

Kicking off the evening will be a screening Amplitude & Artifacts a video piece which supported Ben Frost during his recent 2014 irish tour.

Amplitude & Artifacts is the result of a long distance audio-visual collaboration between synth-drone duo Hooker No.1 (Rory O’Brien / Graham Lynch) and artist Kate-Bowe O’Brien. This experimental video piece had its Irish premier in the Triskel Arts Centre Cork in May 2014, opening for internationally renowned composer Ben Frost.
Have an lamp off the trailer here –

Tarseer
Accompanying screening this will be Ten Past Seven and Hooker No. 1 audio fiend Tarseer – bringing a plethora of big boy audio toys for our listening pleasure. As Super Hans would say “What we really need to do is create a powerful sense of dread” – expect an extremely strong cocktail of ambient and electronic experimentation.

Raumagent Alpha
Ron Schneider aka ‘Raumagent Alpha’ started banging it out in 1996 combining some lounge electronic sounds with Nasa samples from ‘Man on Moon’ from the good man Neil Armstrong and his pals. Later on he got more into club style and apparently reached a level of future funk techno setting the dancefloor on fire. Bring a fire extinguisher!

You may also know him as part of the absolutely glorious Transistors of Mercy – the synthesiser dominator crew. Look out for Ron assaulting a blow up item in this 6 hour Boiler Room bonanza! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZadlH_oR1i4)
Check out over a decade of Ron’s production –

Rory St-John
Headlining the evening’s festivities is Dublin heavyweight and Berlin resident Rory St John. Frankly if you know your techno the guy needs no introduction. Smashing the place apart with his debut 12″ on the seminal Mantrap records Rory has gone from strength to strength. Continuing that upward trajectory with releases on Limetree, Singularity, Acre and Belfast’s wicked Acroplane Records his production is frankly lethal.

Rorys gonna smash out a DJ set for us on the night but have no fear that he’ll be leaving the hardware at home, along with Swarm Intelligence he has been heavily involved in Stalker Radio, their properly ace monthly show on Future Music featuring a pandoras box of killer rhythms.

Büaladh Residents will supply the garnish with the usual assortment of crisp quality vinyl cuts. Acres of electro silk, techno blasters and break beat heavies.

Game on!

Dark Beats ~ Cold Waves

LIVE
TWINS (That Which Is Not Said), Atlanta -> listen
Leroy Se Meurt, Paris -> listen
Zagrebleu, Leipzig -> listen
DJ:s Enfant Terrible, Neugeborene Nachtmusik and åtåmåtån

TWINS/That Which Is Not Said is Matt Weiner who is also known for his Featureless Ghost project and of course as the head of the DKA Records label. His project TWINS is not limited to one specific style but the dominant characteristic is the synth driven sound. Other influences are various styles of dance music and a healthy dose of arty post-punk.

Leroy Se Meurt from France is a duo with a background in electronics and in punk music and this is very evident in their sound. Old school EBM is fused with fierce elektro. A true punk attitude and energy is always there, sort of in the tradition of Ich Bin. They stay away from the contemporary EBM sound with techno influences. Leroy Se Meurt choose their own stylistic path but with the same impact for the dance floor, or maybe even more impact.

Zagrebleu is a synthpunk duo from Leipzig throwing Wave, EBM, Acid, New Beat in a blender and spice it up with a pinch of Industrial and Hi-NRG.
