KRAKE OPENING
Urban Spree
Revaler Str. 99
doors open: 18:00
entrance fee: on donation

DAT POLITICS (sub rosa, chicks on speed) – live
5XL (magic power) – live
Huron (crazy language) – live
Subkutan (institut für Zukunft)
Axiom (crazy language)

We open our festival with a line up that is as wild and eclectic as the festival itself.
DAT POLITICS is by far one of the most interesting electric bands on the planet. They have given proof of this with their uncountable albums as well as with the remix for David Lynch lately. Most of all they are known for their hot-wired and partly chaotic live shows, which explain the cult-like enthusiasm that surrounds the french combo. 5XL is a collaboration of 5 young musicians, who are all involved in other successful musical projects and use this alias for live jams of unheard raw energy on meters of hardware machines. Expect some techno/electro madness coming from these young folks! HURON’s music is deeply rooted in classic Electronica and IDM. Gllitches, beautiful soundscapes, a strong melancholy feel and a subliminal dark touch are typical for his music. SUBKUTAN, one of the residents of Leipzig’s new techno institution Institut für Zukunft, and Crazy Language-boss AXIOM round the evening off with their dj sets.

Also we will open the art exhibition tonight, which will be open all week long.

LABEL BOUTIQUE

Revaler Str. 99
doors open: 14:00
entrance fee: tba

In order to cre­ate a plat­form for Berlin’s vivid elec­tronic music scene we con­tacted our favourite Berlin labels, record stores and agencies to set up this market, where you can browse their releases and merchandise for rarities and goodies. The mar­ket will be accom­pa­nied by dj sets, a panel on music rights management in modern times and a live performance by JULIA DROUHIN, who cre­ates choco­late records with hits from dead musi­cians, which can be heard and eaten by the audience.

The art exhi­bi­tion will be open all day long.

entrance fee: 15€

killekill takeover:
Alienata (killekill, snuff trax)
DJ Flush (killekill)
FIST VAN ODOR (killekill)

The Wednesday night at Berghain Kantine is a classic. This is where the whole KILLEKILL story started and this night has been part of every edition of the Krake Festival so far.
For this year, we are cooperating with BODIES, a Berlin collective with a strong focus on the physical part of this thing we call techno. They have curated a fine selection of extreme body performances for this night. On the musical side of things we present live sets of INNER8, one half of DADUB, whose solo album earlier this year was a mindblowing trip from dark electronica to techno, and KEN KARTER, who melts down harmonies, numbers and mathematical codes like no other.
Later in the night the Killekill djs will take over: ALIENATA, who has built up a solid reputation with her extraordinary selection of dark styles and her outstanding sensibility for the crowd, Killekill boss hog DJ FLUSH, who is known for his driving sets ranging from abstract to banging techno, from Chicago house to acid, and FIST VAN ODOR. His music is deeply rooted in funk and UK Bass music and his mixes have names like “I smear butter on your belly” or “eating a horse”. He is a freak and he’ll teach you how to be one, too.

EMIKA (emika records)
VINILETTE (the hum)
SÖREN MIEHE (our hobby is different)
BASTUS (our hobby is different)

On Fri­day, we kick off the Krake weekend! For this day we present some of the most chal­leng­ing char­ac­ters in con­tem­po­rary elec­tronic music. First to be men­tioned here are CASSEGRAIN & TIN MAN, a coop­er­a­tion between the Greek/British/Turkish/Asian duo Cassegrain and Tin Man from Vienna, who in their col­labs have com­bined both their dis­tinc­tive sounds — clas­sic con­nois­seur acid and mod­ern techno — to prove how fer­tile this com­bi­na­tion can be. With out­stand­ing releases on Killekill, Ostgut Ton as well as Function’s and Ed Davenport’s Infra­struc­ture lately, the trio has made their way into fame, and we are glad to present one of their rare live shows.
ELECTRIC INDIGO is undoubt­edly one of the most shin­ing peo­ple in techno music for us. Leav­ing the fact, that she is one the first major player in techno for over 20 years aside, she is also an artist search­ing for new chal­lenges and fields con­stantly, with­out ever lean­ing back and get­ting cosy in the com­fort­able couch of suc­cess. We are proud to present her coop­er­a­tion with the Aus­trian visual artist THOMAS WAGENSOMMERER, a sub­tle piece explor­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ties of organic growth and change in elec­tronic music.
MONDKOPF’s coop­er­a­tion with a French visual artist, the video col­lec­tive THE29NOV FILMS and many more will be on duty that night — indoor and outdoor.

Zines of the Zone / Open Call for Submissions

As part of the Zines of the Zone‘s wandering zinothek, Urban Spree is calling for zine submissions for its Berlin event.

For Berlin, we are looking for self-published, self-made photozines whose subject is street art, graffiti, urban subcultures (tattoo, skateboard etc…), street practices, underground…

Upon acceptance, your zine will be displayed at Urban Spree for the 2-day exhibition (17-18 April 2014) and thereafter will become part of the travelling permanent collection across Europe.  

1505431_627733057296433_867809653_nZines of the Zone is a nomadic, not-for-profit library dedicated to self-published photobooks, photozines, and any DIY printed matter related to photography. The project’s aim is to create a European network and generate a public collection out of these alternative practices.

From January 2014 onwards, the mobile zinothek’s will be be travelling throughout Europe to display its collection to the public and collect new zines in each visited city, in order to increase the collection and meet new artists.

The photobook phenomenon is increasing and becoming trendy: more and more photographers and graphic designers explore its possibilities, more and more galleries and collectors are attracted by these objects. As these objects are limited in their edition and as they are sold at a fair price, they appear to be quickly sold out – and for that reason, out of reach, hard to find.

The aim is to create a public collection so that anybody can have a look at this printed matter, whether it is sold out or not. This collection would act like a memory, a permanent place for the these quite-ephemeral objects: a place where the books continue to live, give inspiration, be manipulated and shared.

You can bring your zine directly at the gallery during the week/weekend or send it by post (Urban Spree – Revaler Str. 99 – 10245 Berlin).
