NICKY CRANE (TOTAL CONTROL, FUTURE ARCHAIC, RHYTHM WORKS, AU)
Nicky Crane, the solo output of James Vinciguerra of Melbourne post punk band Total Contol, debuts his live show in Berlin on the back of the band’s European tour. James Vinciguerra’s previous works under his Nicky Crane moniker (released on noise label Future Archaic) are droned out and distorted ambient textures. His latest release on Rhythm Works sees his sound shift into the vein of early raw electro and techno.
BASIC MIND (COSI COSI RECORDS, AU)
Tim Loughman’s solo project Basic Mind flourishes in the domain of analog electronica. Echoing early house and acid techno, his raw modular sound is slow brooding with atmospheric textures, rich arpeggiations and resonating bass.
GIRLS OF THE PACIFIC (ALGEBRA OF NEED, DE)
One half of Australian noise duo Girls Of The Pacific from the London based label Algebra Of Need. Expect live brash electronics and subversive rhythmic noise.
CIRCULAR RUINS (PORTALS EDITIONS, DE)
Cold waves and ambient soundscapes from Berlin based artist Marijn Degenaar, who you might recognise as the synth player from post punker’s Ill Winds (NotNotFun). Circular Ruins transports the listener to faraway ancient worlds. Soaring melodies atop marching synthesizer sequences and lush phasing drones meander through the still void.
