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.

Night Shift 1st Year Anniversary

𝔉𝔬𝔯𝔢𝔫𝔰𝔦𝔠𝔰 presents: Night Shift

The sun comes down and with it the day shift comes to an end. It is time for the night shift to take over.

Creatures of the night, replicants, angelic faces and spectators hungry for strangeness give themselves to the carefreeness of the 80s in a club turned for a night into a house of the underground.

For its 8th edition, Night Shift celebrates its first anniversary! One year of synthetic hits, dark beats, teased wigs and torn tights!

On the program: LIVE concert, Drag Shows, New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco, Retro Wave and Techno!

Roman Klonek: Cut the Crap

Urban Spree Galerie presents « Cut the Crap« , a new series of woodcut printings by Düsseldorf-based visual artist Roman Klonek that will be exhibited in our Galerie Ecke.

The Opening Cererony will take place on Friday, September 7th, from 19:00 and occurs during Berlin’s Urban Art Week (05-12 September 2018).

Roman Klonek, born in Kattowitz/Poland and now based in Dûsseldorf, has a spot for old fashioned cartoons and modern block printing styles. In the 1990s he studied Graphic Arts in Düsseldorf and discovered a passion for woodcut. Since 15 years now, he is doing posters with a wide range of whimsical creatures, mostly half animal/half human, preferential in awkward situations, a bizarre balancing act between propaganda, folklore and pop.

Tutti Frutti Fest #3

Tutti Frutti Fest #3
– präsentiert von taz. die tageszeitung, ByteFM, Nothing But Hope And Passion, hhv Records, ASK HELMUT & MAKAVA delighted ice tea

Ganz und gar und einfach nur noch fantastisch!!

Ich würde sogar sagen das Motto ist «sexyerotisch»

Tutti Frutti, ein sexyerotisches Festival am Busen der Spree.

LineUp
. walter tv (CA)
. Aldous RH (UK)
. Jakob Ogawa (NO)
. Mile me deaf (AT)
. Tatum Rush (CH)
. WORLD BRAIN (DE)

Tutti Frutti Fest is back!

Nach 2 fruchtigen sold out Versionen des hauseigenen pøj pøj Tagesfestivals, , welches den Geburtstag der Booking Agentur aus Berlin markiert, findet auch dieses Jahr das Tutti Frutti Fest wieder statt. Genauer gesagt am 09. Dezember 2017 im Urban Spree.

Nachdem in den letzten beiden Jahren das LineUp verstärkt auf Künstler aus dem eigenen Roster gelegt wurde, haben die Berliner Booking Buben dieses Jahr ein kunterbuntes sexi LineUp aufgestellt welches sich sehen lässt.

Ganz weit vorne mit dabei sind sicherlich Walter TV & Aldous RH.

Walter TV sollte mindestens den Mac DeMarco Fans ein Begriff sein, da 2/3 der kanadischen Dudes bei Mac DeMarco mit auf der Bühne zu finden sind.
„Undeniably bassy, these 3 lewd dudes from Vancouver Canada ruin the stage.“ Passt!

Aldous RH ist der unumstrittene neue Liebling vieler Musiker aus Psych- und Krautrock Szene & war zuletzt mit Drugdealer auf Europatour. Beim Tutti Frutti Fest #3 müsste er sich damit mehr als gut aufgehoben fühlen!

Mit World Brain, dem Solo Projekt von Lucas Ufo (Fenster), kehrt das Tutti Frutti Fest dann sogar ein wenig zu seinen Wurzeln zurück, als Fenster auf dem TFF#1 die Meute verzückten. Ganz sicher wird World Brain das gleiche auf dem TFF#3 mit dem Publikum anstellen.

Ganz ohne pøj pøj Bands geht es dann natürlich nicht, und so tritt neben dem 20 jährigen Newcomer aus Norwegen, Jakob Ogawa, der im Dezember seine erste Europa Tour spielt, bevor es nach Argentinien zum Lollapalooza geht, auch Tatum Rush auf.

Tatum Rush ist ein Weltenbummler. Wohnhaft in Lausanne und Lugano pendelt der in Amerika geborenen Italiener zwischen Milan und Paris. Als Videokünstler und Musiker steht er ungern still. Das merkt man auch seiner Liveperformance an. Mit einer Mischung aus Italo-Pop, Disco und Psychedelic funktioniert das im New Yorker Underground Club genauso wie auf der italienischen Hochzeit am Gardasee.

& zu allerletzt wird dann auch noch Mile Me Deaf in Solo Form auftreten, eine Seltenheit die man sich nicht entgehen lassen darf!

Mit Alien Age hat Wolfgang Möstl Anfang des Jahres wohl eines der vielschichtigsten MMD Alben veröffentlicht. Das Geschrammel der Vorgängeralben wurde mit Alien Age vorerst begraben. Sample-basierte Beats und Loops geben nun den Ton an.

Sexi Erotisch ist das Motto des Tutti Frutti Festes #3, und spätestens mit diesem LineUp macht das ganze dann auch Sinn!



Kazumoto Endo \ Facialmess \ MAAAA \ Purgist \ Krube.

Kazumoto Endo (Tokyo, Japan)

Since the mid-’90s, japanese noise artist Kazumoto Endo has released albums and eps under his own name and under the alias KILLER BUG. growing up in the ’80s, endo listened to british bands like THE CURE and THE SMITHS, then got turned on to groups such as PUSSY GALORE and BIG BLACK, and began attending live performances by influential noise bands including HANATARASH and HIJOKAIDAN. Endo was, however, unimpressed with how noise music came across on recordings. He wanted to learn to play something different and so took traditional bolivian music classes. It was during this time that Endo purchased the first noise record he was impressed by: MERZBOW’s Cloud cock 00 ground. Endo began buying equipment and making noise around 1990, in addition to continuing his bolivian music classes. Endo began recording in 1994 under the name KILLER BUG, with his first 7″ released on sweden’s releasing Eskimo label. He performed and recorded as KILLER BUG for a couple of years, but eventually dropped the alias. although he most often performs in Tokyo, Endo has also performed in the U.S., in 1995, 1997 and 2016. KAZUMOTO ENDO/ KILLER BUG has releases on labels from around the world, including releasing eskimo (sweden), self abuse, rrr, pinch- a-loaf (u.s.), alien8 recordings (canada), and freak animal (finland).

FACIALMESS (Tokyo, Japan)
Harsh noise project of british ex-pat Kenny Sanderson. Since 1997, Sanderson has been creating cut up harsh noise consisting of found sounds, industrial loops and stabs of percussion. FACIALMESS has released an impressive array of solo and collaborative efforts including work withwith SICKNESS, BASTARD NOISE, GUILTY CONNECTOR and SUPPRESSION. More recent work can be found on labels such as Opal tapes, Kitty play and No rent records. Effortlessly handling knife edge blasts of noise in between pounding sonic loops, sanderson is a master in the shredding and reassembly of his exclusive brand of cut-up harsh noise.
Expect an unmistakable and unforgettable style, blown-out distorted textures, over-the-top volume, sick high-energy passages, frantic cuts, drills, loops, subtle hints of heavy atmospherics…

MAAAA (Warsaw, Poland)
Russian expat Sergei Hanolainen is the conduit for the well oiled machine that is MAAAA; a critically acclaimed Warsaw based noise project that has undergone years of refinement and as a result, has become to play a pivotal role in the concurrent noise climate. MAAAA’s well rehearsed live shows exhibit merciless deliveries of heavy electronics and dizzying drones that induce a physical response not so dissimilar to G forces. As MAAAA continues to mature, his albums strike a blend of classic, neo and underground styles, of the industrial and of the musique concrète, that are progressive, inspired and precise. It is not often that you see an artist so in touch with their machine.

PURGIST (Kielce, Poland)
Dawid Kowalski is a sound artist, improviser, music publisher, culture animator, live event organizer and art activist specializing in radical avant-garde electronic music. an active member of the polish and international underground music community since the early 2000s. Founder of harshnoise.org (“we fight off tyranny of hate which decimates stupid people!”). PURGIST combines a variety of classic experimental music tropes such as object/tape manipulation, electroacoustic improvisation, industrial noise and combines them with extensive digital post-processing placing the end result in a musical context. PURGIST is an outlet for focused exploration of urban field recordings, digital artifacts, aural atmospherics and disjointed noise dynamics. His vivid, cinematic post- industrial harsh noise works have a prominent conceptual background based on a reflection upon personal vices and self-abusive obsessions.
