RAWS: #Neograffism

Urban Spree Galerie presents „#Neograffism„, the first solo show of the Berlin-based post-graffiti artist Kai „RAWS“ Imhof with Urban Spree.

In „#Neograffism“, a term coined by the artist as being representative of his studio philosophy, RAWS strips down his years of graffiti practice and complexity build-up to lay bare the basic essence of graffiti through color and shape in a visually stunning arrangement of colors, contrasts, and gradients.

RAWS explores the tipping point where the core aesthetics of graffiti, after being deconstructed and re-arranged, becomes acceptable as a form of art while retaining its purity. The artist uses a mixed technique in his studio works, using both the spray can and the acrylic brush, as a hybridation of both worlds, the studio and the outdoor.

When it comes to design, I try to combine my preferences for letters, graphics and minimalism in my work. Many of the works were done using acrylic paints and spray cans. The use of these media also emphasizes the duality of graphics and graffiti. In my canvases I have mostly worked with gradients. These are created exclusively with aerosol and can be a symbol of the movement and transience of graffiti.

In his „Black Series“, writing his name becomes a subdued background while the colorful gradients are windows to his artistic world.

In 2011 the band from Detroit (around Joe Casey (vocals) / Greg Ahle (guitar) / Scott Davidson (bass) and drummer Alex Leonard) stood in the recording studio together for the first time. The result was „No Passion All Technique“ and cost only four hours and a case of beer.

„No Passion All Technique“ is sold out and sold out shortly after its original release on Urinal Cake Records in October 2012. Intellectual, heartbreaking, funny – a random tour de force that has also become an unlikely collector’s item. „My Memory is shot,“ says Casey, „but looking back now, I appreciate how raw and spontaneous it was. There are tons of flaws in it, and it wasn’t because we planned it. The first album is never really the best but I’m glad the album didn’t suck in the end. It opened the door to what we wanted to do later. ”

Their current EP „Consolation“ was released in 2018.

Redscale – South Grove – Heavy Heavy | Urban Spree

Church of Moon – Swamp Conspiracy – DUSTOWN presents
„A Danger Can Of Thounderous Sludgy Headbangs“
FFO: Stoner, Blues, Sludge, Doom, Punk, Psych & Heavy RAWK!

„REDSCALE deliver large in tone and tonnage, bearing enough resonant mass to sate beast king and listener alike. Colosseum-sized chordage, hippodrome-heavin‘ hooks and ziggurat-rockin‘ rhythms are hammered and tempered in the grand sonic forge, until a set of eight amplified artifacts emerge. High-octane riffage and groovin‘ emissions host a vocal conquest that is potent and total, bringing hard rain to a cold dawn and warm song to all there beyond.“
New album FEED THEM TO THE LIONS available on all digital streaming services, limited edition black vinyl in sleeve case with handmade printed labels now available on Bandcamp:
https://redscale-berlin.bandcamp.com

South Grove are four friends that grew up in Athens, who came together in Berlin to share something they love.
The fundament of their live performances is the energy, on which a mixture of stoner rock riffs and blues rhythms breathe through melodic breakdowns that end up tasting soulfully intense.
2ND ALBUM IN THE MAKING FOR RELEASE LATER IN 2020!
http://southgrove.bandcamp.com

Berlin’s HEAVY HEAVY formed in early 2019 by members from the Ukraine, Finland and the US. Inspired by bands like Royal Blood, All Them Witches, Highly Suspect, Death From Above, they set out to rediscover dirty rock music, armed with gritty riffs and thunderous rhythms. DEBUT SINGLE OUT NOW!

Dune Messiah live in Berlin

[aufnahme + wiedergabe] presents:

Dune Messiah (DK) live
[aufnahme + wiedergabe] / Third Coming Records

Copenhagen folk-noir artist Dune Messiah unfolds a universe of dark romance. Through emotional lyrics, songwriter Magnus Westergaard examines the shadows of existence, while a boundary-seeking instrumentation oscillates between the violent and the fragile.

Dark and mature Dune Messiah zones in on the sound of naked sincerity. Honest musical tales of love, loss and mysticism, drawing on sources of inspiration such as Leonard Cohen, Death in June and Nick Cave. On stage, Dune Messiah is an intense experience provided by drummer Lee Thomas, guitarist Andreas Bengtsen and keyboardist Lisa Jespersen, while Magnus Westergaard presents the catchy tunes on acoustic guitar and vocals.

In 2019 Dune Messiah released his second studio album ‚Moments of Bliss‘ on French Third Coming Records and German aufnhame + wiedergabe. In this regard he has been on a long tour through Europ and the first single ‚Silence and Surrender‘ was played extensively on national radio, where Magnus Westergaard was also interviewed. At the start of 2020, Dune Messiah will take on another tour leading them through England, France, Spain, Italy, Germany and Denmark.

„The devout singer-songwriter could very well be Leonard Cohen’s Nordic heiress.“ – Danish newspaper Politiken
