Four noisebands from berlin – friendly with each other and well known at the basement-club/antifa-
scene – come together at urban spree at oct 2th to celebrate a concert in a special manner.
Simultaneously there will be founded a label called “cold noise phonia” where in near future all 4
four bands will release a 10” in diy style soon. Kettenkasten, Amigo Tropical, Balg and Antihairball
are united because of their love to a strange, atonal, dodgy, deconstructed, screaming noiserock,
mathmetal, freestyle something else…because of long training, experimentations and a lot of live
performances all bands have found their own very special style, all are merciless and
uncompromising in their diction and all enjoy insider’s tip status..
Experimental like the music will also be the live setting. The audience will be encircled by the four
bands who stay simultaneous on four different stages around and play in a kind of ping pong
principle. After one song from Amigo follows a track from Balg or Antihairball plays after
Kettenkasten or another configuration happens. The audience will be part of the circuit action and
nobody knows at the beginning exactly what will happen. So enjoy the suspense! As warm-up
Teresa Riemann makes the opener with her poetic drumming.
Antihairball is an instrumental hypertropic weird gender noiserock band from berlin.
From Luanda to New Jersey, from Johannesburg to London, from Kingston to Berlin: indigenous drums and high tech sound fuse in the club. Ancestral beats and diasporic voices thrive on inner city streets. Meta-rhythms and mega-bass erasing borders, connecting dots, and making your booty work overtime — FUCK THE FUTURE, THIS SHIT IS NOW.
NGOMA SOUND SYSTEM (Ngoma Sound // Berlin)
A hybrid musical entity made of dj and live instrumentation consisting of 2, 3, 4, or 5 members, fusing ancestral rhythms, acoustic textures, and urban bass pressure. Drawing from both the wealth of African sonic traditions as well as up-to-the-minute street sounds worldwide, NGOMA Soundsystem exists in the tension between electronic composition and live improvisation.
INFINITE LIVEZ (Ninja Tune / Exotic Pylon // London / Berlin)
Is a former FKO Raw freestyle battle champ. Released his first album (Bushmeat) in 2004 on Big Dada records, second album in 2007 as a collaborative project with the Swiss electro jazz outfit Stade (Art Brut Fe De Yoot). Has worked with producers such as Blufoot, M3 and Part 2. Puts out his own improvised noise CDs. Has reoccurring dreams of the end of the world.
DJ ZHAO (Ngoma // Beijing / Los Angeles)
An amateur musicologist and professional booty shaker, Dj Zhao brings a poly-cultural understanding of rhythm to his deeply percussive sets. Wildly disparate timess, place, and styles are often connected by an artful sense of composition and mixing technique. Revealing the ancient rhythm roots of the latest and sickest electronic and bass sounds, as well as showcasing the sweetest and heaviest dance music from all over the globe, Dj Zhao creates unique and exhilarating dance floor experiences at once mind expanding and dance-floor exploding.
FUTURISMO (Futurisms / Cheap Acid // Berlin)
A dimension-hopping traveler, circumventing cosmic turbunlances, collecting audio frequencies and rhythms funky on an intergalactic scale. Futurismo is a DJ, in every sense of the word, bringing things along the mutant techno, juke-jungle, UK Bass and acid lines, scornfully jumping across genre borders.
