// 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.

Dánae Cuesta
Shooting exclusively on film, dánae uses photography as a political weapon and the internet as a platform for deterritorialising the segmentation of the public and private space, portraying her friends, lovers and herself in experimental practices in which new spheres of action and subjectivation are created through an exploration of intimacy and desire as a dynamic power that stimulates processes of transformation and reappropiation of the flows of gender.

Creating burlesque and sideshow spectacle performances that embody a variety of inspirations from many timeless fantasies of dangerously desirable women.

World Music Market

As we see the end of summer coming it’s time to celebrate the diverse nature of Berlin with our first World Music Market! Held at Urban Spree and presented by MILK ME and Berlin Sessions. The first World Music Market will see us feature the best musicians from around the world along with a diverse range of food and artist stalls, each showcasing traditional styles fused with modern flavour.

Catnapp is an electronic Live Act from Buenos Aires, Argentina, based in Berlin that combines breakbeat, drum and bass, alternative electronic, pop, rapping and other genres, resulting in an intense and nostalgic atmosphere with Fat percussion and lots of treble.

With probably most multifarious collection of vinyl in Berlin, the anglo-german duo quickly outgrew the local club scene and went on to conquer festival dance floors and underground parties across Europe.

In every song they try to play all instruments at the same time and call it psychedelic 80’s high tech pop. They can be very loud, often too fast, sometimes slow a.k.a groovy and have a weird concept of fashion but they surely love to boogie.
…This definition might change at any moment.

Hala-B is a local duo that Combines middle-eastern rhythms with an edge of western music dance floor. Led by keyboard player and singer Omar El-Fashi.

An eclectic mix of music oscillating between the spheres of house and techno.

UNDOGMATISCH | Subʞutan + Grün + Drøp + T.C.O. + Nekrobot + Mogano + SECRET SHOW!




Subʞutan |Dj
(IfZ / Vertigo)

No pianos, scarce vocals, no light – nevertheless a tapestry of sound that reaches deep beneath the skin. As co-organizer and resident of Vertigo, Subʞutan has quickly made his mark on Leipzig’s electronic music scene and has expanded upon facets of music that, until now, have been painfully missed. His name stands for the melancholic and dark sounds of techno, going beyond the experimental to where a 4/4 pulse finds its place. In Subʞutan’s sets, hard, dry kickdrums stomp tirelessly through a post-industrial tristesse, behind which you can always clearly hear the beating of a human heart.



Grün | Live

GRÜN is a project entirely dedicated to the biological nature of Green, intended as a frequency of light spectrum as well as archetypal symbol of what we usually name “Nature”.
It is an organic sonic creature taking shape by controlled interactions between purpose-made analogue synthesis modules, field recordings and acoustic piano parts, resulting in a deep-bass sonic form sounding like over-amplified microbiological worlds.
The project takes shape through site specific analogue autogenerative a/v installations or fully improvised sound performances by Daniele De Santis, Berlin based drummer-percussionist and electronic music producer, founder and artistic director of DROMOSCOPE.



Drøp| Live

Drøp is an electronic music project born in Berlin in 2010 by Giuseppe Bifulco, sound designer and engineer. It focuses on sounds investigation and experimentation, not that much in an aesthetic meaning, rather than in a perceptual and sensorial one, considering the sound as a bundle of informations that deal with psycho- acoustic and music therapy.

The sound is generated so far by manipulating electric circuits, lights or everything else is able to turn electric impulses into sound sources describing with thin, rarefied and abstract environments a deep fascination for the mathematical theory of the empty-set (ø). This leads the listener into an dream-like dimension, an empty set, a suspended state of mind reached through a rich narrative flow of micro-sounds, glitches and convulsed rhythm.


T.C.O. | Live
(Suite inc. / Undogmatisch)

T.C.O. aka Mirco Magnani is a Berlin based music composer, producer, video artist and dj, he was co-founder and composer of the music projects Minox, Technophonic Chamber Orchestra, 4Dkiller. Since 1984 he produced music and mixed-media events with Minox; since 1996 he co-founded the independent record label Suite inc./Suiteque. He worked with Steven Brown (he produced Minox “Lazare” – Industrie Discografiche Lacerba – Lacer 9 – 1986) and Blaine L. Reininger of Tuxedomoon, Lydia Lunch, Krisma, Mad Professor, Nobukazu Takemura, The Gentle People, Murcof, Daedelus. In 2004 Mirco started his solo project T.C.O.and going soon to release a new album, a sort of electroacoustic Opera titled “Madame E.”, based on a novel from Georges Bataille with the singer Ernesto Tomasini. T.C.O. will present a preview of the new tracks he’s working on for his next techno releasing, mixing digital with live improvised analog devices.



Mogano| Dj

Founded by Marco Berardi around 2010, this project focus on a combination of club-music elements with iterative ancestral rhythms, drone ambient landscapes, dub foregrounds, noise and rough bass incursions. After playing for some years across the Dub/Dubstep scene and lately in the Techno one, he started to develop a deep interest for sounds experimentation and visual art that led him, together with the visual artist Andrea Familari FAX and the sound designer Drøp, to found Arboretum, a cooperative platform which promotes Audio/Visual experiments and an immersive experience of clubbing. Since 2012 both the projects are rooted and active in Berlin counting on several participations amongst more experimental contests and the club scene.



Nekrobot| Dj

Nekrobot comes originally from Athens where, being a member of Jinx Entertainment collective, was spinning minimal and synth punk in underground clubs around the city for the last seven years. An the same time was editing and experimenting with visual and audio collage, continuously deconstructing and distorting reality on the wrong side of entertainment. Arriving in Berlin, became resident at Sabbat party, doing unusual mixes of harsh electronic sounds. Nekrobot wishes to express disorder in sound and vision.




Italian artist, born in 1987, lives and works in Berlin, Germany. His works encompass from Vjiing, Audio/Visual Interactions, Mapping, Interactive installations to Scenic-design and investigate mostly on the decomposition of micro/macro cosmos. Since 2012 he works also as Workshops Manager for LPM (Live Performers Meeting): an international meeting of live video performers, video artists and vjs, that seeks to study the practices that most have influenced live video performance. In 2013 he also founded, together with Marco Berardi (Mogano) and Giuseppe Bifulco (Drøp) the Records Label Arboretum, a cooperative platform for Audio/Video experiments.



Valentina Bardazzi | Videoinstallation

Valentina is a painter. “True perfection does not exist, the sense of beauty comes from imperfection.” In the attainment of perfection, there is always the need for some elements of ugliness and of madness. When the ugliness is there, it is often overlooked, either intentionally or unintentionally, but perhaps when it is overlooked, true perfection is obtained. In late 2007, Valentina Bardazzi and Mirco Magnani began to work together using the same subjects for the Valentina’s paintings and for Mirco to make videos by their first thematic exhibition project titled “Untitled for Parenthesyne Suite”, in 2010 ” Mio Son Tuo” and in 2012 “Real Dreams”.



Dusan Pejcic | Video
(Gray Sister)

Dušan Pejčić, born in Belgrade, Serbia. With the background in graphic design, fine arts and fashion design he currently lives and works as costume and multimedia designer in Berlin, Germany. Dušans work is constantly moving between costume and set design, video art, graphic design, 3d art, illustration and painting, resulting in a multidisciplinary projects and collaborations with various artists, designers, filmmakers, performers and choreographers.
