–––––

KRAKE FESTIVAL is a festival for challenging electronic music organized by the Berlin based Killekill crew. As the name implies, the festival spreads its tentacles out over multiple days and venues across the city, presenting different styles of music. KRAKE is not about hype, it’s about music, that dares to step off the beaten track, about surprising performances and a down-to-earth attitude, far off the mainstream.

A festival for music lovers.

–––––

The Krake weekend begins on FRIDAY daytime with the legendary Label & Synth Market, a record fair bringing together almost 100 of Berlin’s underground record labels and a small selection of synth brands to present their products in the lively garden area of Urban Spree. Next to DJ sets and surprise performances rounding off the day, the raffle is a chance to win electronic music production equipment and other cool stuff once again. All profit of the raffle will go to Ickmachwelle, a project which aims to empower and teach people with cognitive disabilities to learn how to make electronic music. Ickmachwelle will also perform live directly after the raffle!
FRIDAY night sets the stage for a series of concerts and performances in pure punk attitude! Dig through wild West-Berlin’s archives of the ‘80s with scene expert Mark Reeder and ‘B- Movie’, followed by a Q&A and dj set with and by the protagonist himself. Synth-punk Petra Flurr & 89st is opening for Schwefelgelb, Berlin’s most prolific duo in classic body music tradition, while The Horrorist is gearing up for one of his raging and devastating live performances.
On top of this we are delving deeper into DIY synth art and Circuit Bending throughout the day and night with Lithuanian Moon Armada being one of the most impressive artists in the field. He builds experimental musical devices using doll heads and other objects to create an unreal and spooky atmosphere and has prepared an installation and a performance for our festival.

Basement Bash Vol. XIX & TDWF- Headliner: The Molochs

 

Basement Bash and The David Watts Foundation are proud to announce that they will be joining forces for this special edition of your favorite Berlin concert series, with a kick-ass line-up!

THE MOLOCHS (USA)

It’s not a surprise to see that the Molochs are on the same label that brought the world the Allah-Las. Like their fellow Los Angelenos, the Molochs are in thrall to that point in the mid-60s where beat groups, garage bands and psychedelic outfits began to merge into each other. There’s a drowsiness about their music – they tend towards the mid-tempo, Lucas Fitzsimons drawls his vocals, and the guitars jangle more than growl – that means they don’t quite tip over into Pebbles/Nuggets territory. Which means they can’t just get by on sneers and snarls; they need melodies, too. And when they hit the sweet spot, they’re a treat: Charlie’s Lips, powered by none-more-Shindig! organ, is terrific; The One I Love sounds like a lost demo from the Leaves; No More Cryin’ ups the energy, crossing over into early Stones-styled R&B. Genre fans will love it – it’s the perfect soundtrack to pulling on your Chelsea boots and black crew-neck sweater.

THREE MARIAS (DE)

Previously and briefly known as Thee Dropp, Three Marias is a trio (you guessed right) of expats based in Berlin. Stranded on the Spree shores while sailing from their homelands with the winds of change at their backs, the three boys – yes, boys – bonded through their common inspiration from the sound of 60s garage and surf rock, as well as the fuzzy growls of today’s wave of neo-psychedelic rock. Through reverb-drenched chords and dissonant, roaring riffs, Three Marias will take you on board in their cruise amongst punchy irony and dreamy melancholia.

PALM SQUIRREL (DE)

Palm Squirrel are a Berlin-based noise rock trio formed by Mathew Johnson, Paul Laburre and Jason Gold. Their debut EP is coming out on Baby Satan Records.

Lars Wunderlich: What Are We Looking For?

Urban Spree Galerie presents « What Are We Looking For?« , a solo show of new works by Berlin-based visual artist Lars Wunderlich.

« What Are We Looking For? » is a vertiginous exploration of our tech-dominated and image-centric world. Our global course to an endless progress, always more distant from the natural order, over-leveraging our resources, using ever-expanding technology to achieve a deeper exploration and understanding. But what are we really looking for? And do we understand better?

In this conceptual journey which is an acute exploration of modernity, Lars Wunderlich crafts and paints visual collages, replicates portraits generated by algorithms, integrates economic cycles, and juxtaposes different time elements which generate collisions, distortions and glitches, to better highlight the unreal nature of those representations and the danger thereof.

His paintings bear some similarities with the « New Leipzig School », albeit with technology at the core, and aesthetics boosted by Artificial Intelligence and modern faux-semblants. They are representations of non-existing representations, real but fake, distorted, whether by time, space, speed, or truth. A perpetual collision of images.

« It Is And It Isn’t » – Acrylic on Canvas – 172 cm x 137 cm – 2019

Biography:

Lars Wunderlich (b. 1981 in Neubrandenburg, GDR) is a German post-graffiti artist, member of the 9-member street art crew « The Weird » (Nychos, Low Bros, DXTR, Vidam…) under the moniker « Look the Weird ».

Besides spraypainting/wallpainting and graphic design, Lars is an accomplished painter. « What are we looking for? » is his first solo exhibition with Urban Spree Galerie.

Art Bei Ton x Le Pas-Sage is a collaborative event between the Berlin-based event series, Art Bei Ton, mixing electronic music with visual arts, and Le Pas-Sage, a party crew from Paris.

This event is the occasion for us to gather together and create a unique vibe, listing to some great Techno, Ambient and Experimental lives and DJ sets, as well as enjoying visuals with VJing, video exhibition, and visual installation.

For this special occasion, we’ll project the Berlin premiere of the documentary « Sleep Comes Tomorrow » by Jérôme Clément-Wilz, who followed Le Pas-Sage for several months while they were looking for hidden places to organize rave parties.
We’ll also talk about « Rave party: how is the situation today in Paris, Berlin or Japan? » through a 30min panel.

Still focusing on curating an ethic and international line up, we mixed our Le Pas-Sage raver folks from Paris with our Art Bei Ton residents, as well as some great new faces.
On the main floor, we’ll have the pleasure to welcome two live performances from Jessica Kert (zv_k) and Adc-303, as well as Techno sets from Justine Perry, Otoko – 音庫, Mokavenko – MOKKA and Léa Occhi for her premiere in Berlin.
On the 2nd floor, we’ll start with an Ambient set from Vincenzo Albano, followed by Shintaro Yamaguchi, Ones. and Rorschach.

Not only sharing music, but visuals are also playing a big part in this night concept. A VJing performance from Sasha Smirnova will take over the main floor all night long. You’ll also find our unmissable video exhibition on 2000s TV, featuring the work of Lucy Williams, Sig Valax and Melle Skärfstad
Last but not least, a visual installation from ElCid VS will take place in the downstairs room.
