LIVE: Roberto Auser and Romance Disaster
DJ: Enfant Terrible and åtåmåtån
ROBERTO AUSER has built a name of his own with releases on Viewlexx, Pinkman and Enfant Terrible. Still he stays something like a best kept secret of the Dutch electronic music scene… this mainly due to his output which is never to be pinned to one specific genre or style… His live sets and his release have recently moved more and more into the direction of harsh pounding beats with a dark mood and industrial sounds… and even a true rave spirit… see you on the dance floor!
ROMANCE DISASTER is a Berlin based “woman-machine” live-act founded by Aga Wilk (former 77TM). The music is a blend between techno and dark electro. On stage, besides vocals, Romance Disaster uses drum machines and synthesizers, frequently changing them to make each performance special. For åtåmåtån she has released the great EP “Girls-Guns” with remixes by Millimetric and Ethan Fawkes, packed with beats, stabs and attitude.
What happens when you put together two label heads with a dark beat obsession? You get a great night of music and one hell of a party. That is what åtåmåtån and Enfant Terrible aim at with their Dark Beats ~ Cold Waves night.
This night by åtåmåtån and Enfant Terrible is a synth drive dance night, modern minded with a healthy tribute to the past, not too much looking backwards but also not moving into too much clubby techno regions, more an 80’s and 90’s vibe but also updated with nowadays dark beats.
Expect a lot of new and old EBM, elektro-wave and new beat influenced sounds. But as it is an open minded night anything with a dark beat could find its way to the floor from acid, and (early/dark) techno to elektro and industrial, as long as it’s fit for the dance floor.
ENFANT TERRIBLE is a Dutch independent record label for music and was founded in 2004. The focus is on electronic / experimental (pop) music in styles such as elektro-wave, (post-)techno and ambient. The Gooiland Elektro is known for putting out off-radar dance music and is loved by
dj’s around the world.
ÅTÅMÅTÅN is a Berlin based synth label, founded by Swedish Ella Moe. She was also part of the FlexiWave label and synth duo Colouroïd. The focus of åtåmåtån is to release limited vinyl editions made with love and a strong visual focus in tribute to the 80’s DIY scene. Hand folded, golden, risograph printed, numbered sleeve art and hand stamped or lettered labels. Sounds stretch from dark dreams to club rage.
