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.

Tché Ruggi: Deep

Urban Spree and A7MA (Sao Paulo) present an exhibition in Urban Spree Galerie’s Ecke of new works by Sao Paulo based artist Marcelo Ruggi a.k.a. Tché.

Tché created some of the works of his series “Deep” as an Urban Spree Resident Artist in March 2018.

Tché Ruggi and “Submercidade”, his latest series, is the result of a profound dive into “Sea of Perceptions”, his first body of works, when he had the chance to meditate and seek deeper meanings. In the midst of darkness, his forms reflected silvered lights and unveil this submerged city.

Time made the triangular geometries defragment and unraveled what was behind their pyramidal assemblies, finding a new universe of possibilities to explore. “Deep” portrays the current moment of the artist who in his deep immersion, looks at the light and returns towards the surface. Exploring his sensations, senses and memories, he deciphered the “Enigma” and reached the maturity expressed in dynamism and gesture, in his representative aquatic structures.

Text: Enivo
Translation from Portuguese: Marina Zumi

 

About the artist:

In 2004, Tché visited an old house in ruins. The mud and the aggressive action of nature over the construction’s remains seemed like saying , “do not paint in here”.

The space, where in and outside were in harmony as a chess game. The sky was part of the roof and the ground was the soil. The artist waited for an omen.

The sunset arrived touching the destroyed windows, cutting it self through the broken pieces of glass and projecting its own paint of light and shadow over the surfaces as an invisible event, drawing on the walls calling the night.

From this day, the geometry of the shapes projected by the light, small triangles, pointed shapes, hard waves, dry cuts, they all became raw material for the artistic process.

Tche adopted the fragments of this mysterious answer to spread it little by little on his repertory casted in iron, overlaying the layers, pressured on paint, magnetizing fields. It was built the enigma of an impossible pyramid.

Tche Ruggi, graduated at Faculdade Belas Artes de São Paulo, on 2009.

On 2008, he was one of the founders of Atelier 132, that originated the “Coletivo 132”, a collective of graffiti artists. Tche has done exhibitions in Austria, Germany and Brazil. On 2012, he founded with his partners the A7MA Space of Art and Culture, which is growing until today and hopefully for a long time.

Night Shift ft. Zanias

Lenny Cartwright and Forensics Kollektiv present: Night Shift
SATURDAY, MARCH 24TH, 2018
23H30 – 06H00+
URBAN SPREE
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

The sun comes down and with it the day shift comes to an end. It is time for the night shift to take over.

Creatures of the night, replicants, angelic faces and spectators hungry for strangeness give themselves to the carefreeness of the 80s in a club turned for a night into a house of the underground.

On the program: Live Concert, Drag Shows, New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco and Retro Wave over two floors.

For its second edition, Night Shift welcomes a dear friend of Forensics Kollektiv who is no stranger to our stage, having performed at Tech Noire, our sister party in Paris: Zanias.

Zanias was born in Australia, raised in South-East Asia and now resides in Berlin. She was once known as the voice of the bands Linea Aspera and Keluar, and now performs and DJs as a solo artist.
Her debut EP ‘To the Core’ was produced in collaboration with Alex Akers of the band Forces, a process which was completed in a dilapidated beach house on Australia’s desolate and wild southern coast in February 2016, and released in September on Austrian label Noiztank. Tying together industrial rhythms and unearthly vocals, the four tracks explore an intrinsically human journey through loss and upheaval.
In addition to performance and production, Zanias is a member of Berlin’s Fleisch collective, an amalgam of DJs with primary careers as musicians and designers, and a taste for electronic body music, new beat, industrial, acid, and the darker, wavier fringes of techno. In 2016 their parties gave way to the founding of a record label, which made its debut with Schwefelgelb’s body music masterpiece ‘Wie Die Finger Durch Den Nebel’.

At the DJ booth, our resident DJs Al Niklaus, Bunker Bal and Inept Pernicious will be joined by three special guests. A staple of goth nightlife, producer of prominent underground parties such as Ceremonies and Death# Disco: Ian P. Christ; and resident DJs at Tech Noire, Night Shift’s sister party in Paris, and queer duo extraordinaire: Law & Haktion.
They will take you back to the sweet effervescence of the 80s with New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco and Retro Wave beats.

On the drag stage, our hostess Ghōst will be joined by Antina Christ, a figure of the House of Presents and a goth at heart, and Dis Charge, who comes all the way from Bristol to bring you the most outrageous show in town.

Night Shift is a LGBT+, hetero-inclusive bimestrial event.

We pride ourselves on being a safe space for LGBTQIA+ individuals, their allies, and women: our team consists predominantly of female-identified and queer-identified folks.
All of our DJs and our drag performers are individuals who identify as being part of a counter-culture and our drag shows also fall under the umbrella of our music genres for a complete immersive experience.
