SPT (aka Synth Pop Troubadour) will be releasing the first music video from his upcoming album, « People Tonight » at Urban Spree on December 11, 2014 for the song « Graveyard Eyes ».
There will be a screening of the video, followed by a performance by SPT and the FBI (his live band). Special guests and DJs will follow.
SPT is a Berlin musician (from Canada) who has brought his glittery-synthpop-trash to venues all over Berlin, from Kater Holzig to White Trash.
His Eighties-Inspired performances are complete with costume changes (with a costume-change song), elaborate dance moves and Elvis-style crooning with a punk aesthetic.
Synth Pop Troubadour has toured all over Europe, been interviewed on Deutschland Radio Kultur and was featured on German Television.
Curated by Dscreet, the DUBL TRUBL exhibition at Urban Spree gathered 90 street and graffiti artists predominantly from the London scene to work in duos and display artworks made on a collaboration basis.
The outcome is a vivid, free-spirited, and grassroots street art show where most artists have displayed a more graffiti-oriented vision, both on the walls painted outside or in the works shown in the gallery. “Back to the roots of street art” in a way, this spirit being also embodied in the DUBL TRUBL dark humored series of videos.
For the closing evening & party on October 30th, a special DUBL TRUBL zine and a series of fresh videos are currently in the making to document the adventure and spirit of the show. Both will be released during the party.
We will also celebrate the launch of Chrisse Kunst’s Print collaboration with Dave The Chimp, Billy & Alex, Reka, Thierry Noir, Aeon, Christiaan Nagel, Pure Evil, EBOT, 44flavours, Base23 and more. ..

BOBBY RAUSCH Record Release Concert SOAP
Presented by: XJAZZ, MUSSZO, SPRINGSTOFF & 80 DAYS RECORDS
23. January 2020
Urban Spree Berlin
On January 17, 2020 the debut album SOAP of the Berlin band BOBBY RAUSCH will be released on Eighty Days Records. After concerts at the XJazz Festival Bobby Rausch returns to Berlin together with Springstoff, Musszo and XJazz to play the Record Release concert at Urban Spree on January 23rd, 2020.
SOAP sounds determined and clear, but never loses its closeness or dirt. The songs span the spectrum between Berlin club culture, underground and great scenic narration. While the force of the sound overcomes you, you still feel pleasantly secure in the unexpected tonal turns of the band. The Berlin DJ and producer DJ Illvibe (Peter Fox, Marteria, Seeed) is a feature guest on three SOAP tracks. This album lets you sweat only to wash your soul afterwards.
AFAR blurs the horizons between organic and electronic sound worlds. With the fragile sounds of wind chimes and kalimba, mystical voices, analog synthesizers, drum machines and electric guitar, they invite you on a journey that is both intimate and ecstatic.
Close your eyes and find yourself in a hypnotic cinematic world, comparable to the surreal vibe of a Jim Jarmusch film.
