// 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.

// Hideto Omura (Robsoul Recordings) From Nagoya //

Having been inspired by the skills and sounds of Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, Cajmere et al, Omura took to the decks himself back in the early naughties. His natural beat running, mixing swing and selection always guarantee an enviable energy and electricity on dance floor.

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 –
http://www.amplitudeandartefacts.com/

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!

Mueran Humanos + Tildaflipers + Eyes Gone

Mueran Humanos (Berlin)

Presenting for the first time all the songs of their upcoming album “Hospital Lullabies”

Tildaflipers (Argentina)

Berlin debut as part of their first European tour
“Tildaflipers was formed by veterans of several hardcore and post rock bands and lead by Tomas Spicolli, an artist who remains crucial in the development of DIY culture and street art in Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo. Its main influence is dub, but instead of sticking to the genre, the band took its premises and techniques and ran away with them to make a sound of their own. They can end up sounding like pop sometimes, although they’re coming from the opposite end of the spectrum.”

Eyes Gone (Berlin)

Live debut of this evil industrial techno.

Blind Delon, H ø R D, Leere live + after party Herzschlag

BLIND DELON

Founded in 2016 by Mathis Kolkoz and after releasing several works on Oráculo Records / Bordello A Parigi and some DJ sets around Europe, Blind Delon raised to a multi-art project (3 musicians and a visual composition by the french artist AFB).

With their heads and bags filled with synthesizers from a time they weren’t even born, the band can be found today between a record shop and a cave rave, looking for an aesthetic that is nowhere near dying. Post-Synthwave might be the best words to qualify the project, as the music is a sort of breed between outrageous Pop and cold basslines.

Building a bridge between Pop and Rave music, Blind Delon is making a NOT conventional yet romantic Post-Punk sound.

https://soundcloud.com/blind-delon
https://oraculorecords.bandcamp.com/album/blind-delon-edouard-12-ltd-edition-ep-vinyl

H ø R D

H ø r d creates electronic music inspired by coldwave, soundtracks, fantasy movies, oscillating between epic compositions, EBM and techno pulse, and also more contemplative tracks.

After performances on his own musical territory, he gradually came to the European synth wave scene, signing a remix for Winter Severity Index (Rome) and performing live in Germany (Wave Gotik Treffen), Belgium, Czech Republic, Swiss, Malta, Italia, Austria, Spain.

His first album “Focus on light” was released 2016 on Anton Maiiovi’s label Giallo Disco Records, and sold out 6 weeks later.
In 2017, his third EP «Futures» is out on Sacred Court, label of electronic artist SNTS.

His upcoming second LP will be out in Avant! Records in September, 2018.

«The label Giallo Disco Records have described the music as “Reverb-Soaked Urban-Gothic Melancholic songs, between synth-shoegaze and violent EBM,” and believe the album will “will resonate strongly with fans of Pornography-era The Cure, Joy Division and classic Nine Inch Nails.” To our ears we hear strains of early Tropic of Cancer and dare we say Pet Shop Boys, and overall, as you’ll be able to tell from the album preview below, it’s a well informed reincarnation of what makes the synth, minimal and no wave genres so appealing today.» JUNO DOWNLOAD (2016)

LEERE

We come from nowhere and move towards emptiness.
Leere is an introvert musical project, trying to express and fill the emptiness inside us. The use of analog and digital sounds of the 80s and the integration of sounds from Berlin, the city that influences her and her music strongly, helps her with that hard task.
