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

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.

Pankow, Tara in Tibet live // Herzschlag

PANKOW (IT)

Pankow, founded in Florence back in 1981, are one of the very first electronic/industrial acts coming out from Italy. The founding member Maurizio FM Fasolo and his five co-band members at that time created sounds inspired by the likes of Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire and early Kraftwerk.

After various line-up changes and the arrival of charismatic lead-singer and poet Alex Spalck, the project started to become noted also abroad and a first live-appearance in Berlin in 1984 marked the start of a long ongoing and successful career for the band.

Following a few cassette-releases and compilation appearances, Kindergarten Records – in collaboration with Polygram – released a first 4-tracks EP in 1984, that included the first more accessible, EBM-Electro-like tracks (even though the term ‘EBM’ was not ‘invented’ by that time…): songs like ‘God’s Deneuve’ and ‘Wodkachaos’ became major hits in Italy. The first LP came in 1987 on Contempo Records, and was produced by Adrian Sherwood.

Since 2016 Pankow started to collaborate with the Canadian label Artoffact by releasing their first official cassette (“Throw out Rite”, 1984) and a 10 “vinyl (Times) with the first songs released only in some Italian compilations before and a couple unpublished ones.

The band is currently active and based in France/Belgium with the frontman singer Bram Declercq.

TARA IN TIBET (IT)

Berlin-based Tara in Tibet is a project of Alessio de Felice, co-runner of label She Lost Kontrol records and owner of Last Europa Kiss records.

His perfomances are waving between noise and groovy industrial, with a touch of esoterism.

Highly recommended for fans of occult sex parties, Italian police movies and dirty raw esthetics.

TIQ

TIQ is a minimal-synth party loved and supported by different alternative scenes. DJ-sets are rigid, cold, rough-edge, blind-alley and the drum machine beats always like a metronome. No matter if the sound comes from the past, the present or the future, we are more and more devoted to select the best minimal-synth-wave music, so called “quadratic wave”.

Quadratic-wave is a word game and a concept from sound physics too, but the best way to catch it is to dance it, and the best way to dance it is by being concentrated and confined in a quadrangle as Die Tödlich Doris sang in their song Tanz im Quadrat: “Wir tanzen im Viereck, wir tanzen konzentriert”.

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.

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.

Since 2000, founder Sam Hillmer has remained its purveying constant, and with the addition of loose-limbed, meditative percussionist Greg Fox (Liturgy, Guardian Alien, Man Forever), and virtuosic avant-classical guitarist and composer Patrick Higgins, the band has found its epochal lineup.

Herzschlag: Nao Katafuchi, Todesstrahlen

Nao Katafuchi (JP/DE, Coldwave)
Todesstrahlen (DE/IT, Psychwave)

DJs: Jaakko, Hanzel
+ guest DJ Sixbynine (Pánica)

Music: ◆ Cold Wave ◆ Post-Punk ◆ Minimal Synth ◆ EBM ◆ New Beat ◆ Italo ◆

Nao Katafuchi

Nao Katafuchi is a Japanese artist who makes electronic music with a guitar & a synth box, creates his own world of cold romantic wave.

Growing up in the suburb of Tokyo in the 1980’s, Nao spent his teenage years on the streets of Shibuya searching for instruments and records, falling in love with electronic music and inhaling everything that the district had to offer. The urban flair of Tokyo, where the growth of hi-tech industry was years ahead from the rest of the world, influenced what would later become his retro-futuristic trademark sound.

In 1991, he relocated to New York City’s Lower East Side, where he started working as an audio engineer for recording production companies; picking up a guitar to later form his first band, SUPERFORTRESS, with which he released a couple of self-produced EPs and LPs.

After years of experimenting with different sounds and scenes, Nao finally found a niche of musically kindred spirits at the legendary Wierd Record’s parties, where he made his debut as Nao Katafuchi. Deeply involved in the thriving minimal synth scene of the City, together with acts such as Xeno & Oaklander, Martial Canterel, Epee Du Bois and Led Er Est – he eventually met Willie Burns of Brooklyn’s WT Records, who released his first record, Yumegoto, in 2012.

In the late 2015 Nao moved his home base to Germany, and released his first full length album Émergence from Nadanna, a sister label of Germany’s Anna Logue Records. The album is featuring contributions from Kevin Komoda of Rational Youth, Miss Liz Wendelbo from Xeno & Oaklander, Tomo Akikawabaya and Tona Ohama. Borrowing Liz Wendelbo’s words, it is easy to imagine oneself lost in Nao’s music “while driving through Tokyo at night: neon lights, mannequins in shopwindows, and empty streets”, enthralled within his sonic creation of a future past.

Todesstrahlen

Todesstrahlen is a brand new band based in Berlin which mixes industrial, wave and psychedelic sounds. The organic and natural mixture comes from the former experiences of the three members who have been active in several bands of different musical scenes. Born at the beginning of the 2016, they recorded a first DIY album after some improvisation sessions where self-made instruments (made with construction site materials) and hypnotic shoegaze guitar and bass sound were setted up.

Opale (FR)
———————-

In opal fields, you have to pierce through layers of rock to discover a gem. Opale’s first album, L’incandescent, holds a single direction throughout the 35 minute duration and is graciously supported with a band of cold and melancholic analog keyboards and soft, haunting voices. Nowhere to go and nothing to feel is the single story sung in English, French, and Spanish. Through cities of light and the waking of lost spirits, Opale will take you on a trip that may be your last.

Paris based Opale released their first EP under the name Playground on Stellar Kinematics in 2012. The album included a collaboration with Ensemble Economique’s Brian Pyle. Since then, Sophia Hamadi and Rocio Ortiz have recorded beautiful sounds within L’Incandescent and have toured throughout Europe, Canada and the USA.

Kælan Mikla (IS)
———————-
https://kaelanmikla.bandcamp.com/music

Kælan Mikla is a three-piece punk/no-wave band from Reykjavík slowly getting darker and deeper with new waves and more instruments. The band consists of three girls who perform their own poetry and have been described as an avant-garde, fresh breeze into the Icelandic music scene in the past two years. The band was formed after winning first place in a poetry slam held by the city library in January 2013. They have since then played multiple festivals as well as touring
Europe. Kælan Mikla are known for their dark melancholic sound, most of the songs consisting only of heavy bass, drums and screams with some softer, melodic synth parts in-between. The band lyrics focus on inner confusion and their intimidating stage performance, often including performance art of some sort, is bound to leave the crowd in a melancholic trance.

“This trio has moved from being a post-punk outfit of bass, drums and vocals into bold new territory. Chilling, neurotic synth loops paired with ass-end bass and some positively haunting vocals, their sound has evolved into something darker, stronger, capable of taking us from the everyday world into the gauzy barrier between us and our nightmares. Like watching a forgotten reel of film shot at a haunted house, you come away from seeing them live wondering if it’s really over, as you can still feel icy fingers reaching towards you.”

Princess Century (CA)

http://princesscentury.com/

Maya Postepski never stops. An active member of the Toronto music scene, she has been making music for over 10 years, currently as part of electronic group Austra (Paper Bag Records / Domino). She is a prolific remix artist, DJ and she co-wrote and produced TRST with Robert Alfons as Trust (Arts & Crafts).
This project is the outlet for her genre-crossing experiments that take us on a journey through minimalist cosmic disco psychedelia, crossing through glacial poly-rhythmic territories soaked in dark dripping goo.

Shooting stars and icicles glimmering weave a reflective thread through each track while mechanical pulses ground soaring delicious keyboards that could melt the heart of a cobra.

Do not be afraid! Close your eyes and allow the warm synthesizer liquid to seep through your veins and take you into a far away galaxy of love, lust and passion.
