Independent Label Market values the experience of the consumer and the music fan above all.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Come down and freak out with us!

On this floor we are going to present a line up of inter­na­tional artists, who know how to com­bine old school with new school, acid and elec­tro with mod­ern techno and prove that what used to be good, still is.

For this night, we will have our art exhi­bi­tion fea­tur­ing Robert Henke’s laser instal­la­tion “Destruc­tive Obser­va­tion Field” and Sonic Robots’ “MR-808 Inter­ac­tive” open all night long.

The Krake weekend kicks off on FRIDAY daytime at Urban Spree with the legendary Krake Label Boutique, a small record fair bringing together Berlin’s underground music labels with around 50 imprints displaying and offering their work in the beautiful outside area. Next to DJ sets and surprise performances rounding off the day, the raffle, which has taken place for the last two years, is a chance to win electronic music production equipment and cool stuff once again!

The night opens with « The Quest for a Real Hardhob« . Originally shown at this year’s Berlinale, the silent animated movie on the dystopian sci-fi tip is completed by a live score from Andrew Millington on drums and cello, and Dave Senan on electronics. During the night expect extraordinary performances in the vast warehouse-like gallery space of Urban Spree, including a rare live performance from extreme vocalist Tim Exile, a multi-hour ambient jam by Transistors of Mercy, and a sound installation titled ‘Sonic Robots‘ by Moritz Simon Geist, whose robotic sculptures produce noises in combination with live techno. While the basement is taken over by DJs showcasing the labels involved in the market, the Concert Room focuses on bands, live acts and DJs experimenting with the darker side of techno. Constantly reinventing himself as a musician, T.Raumschmiere joins forces with 21 Downbeat – an electronic band including several artists with disabilities determined to ignore genre boundaries to arrive at their own explorative take on electronic music. Thomas P. Heckmann (OFFICIAL)plays one of his EBM-fueled techno sets in between AJA‘s psychosexual rhythmic noise and the incredible punk-techno duo COAL.
