Alva Noto is the stage name of sound artists Carsten Nicolai, who has established himself as an artist amongst current electronic sound and visual designers who are using art and music as hybrid tools to create microscopic views of creative processes. Together with Byetone they will show to audience how sounds Raster-Noton quality.
Sascha Ring`s fourth album, The Devil`s Walk, live with the whole band… i think its enough, right?
After the falldown of the Berlin wall Olaf Bender aka Byetone was working with a music distributor. The work experiences he collected there led to the idea of publishing own musical production. Together with Frank Bretschneider he founded the recordlabel Rastermusic in 1996. In the year 1999 merged with sublabel Noton (owned by Carsten Nicolai) to Raster-Noton.
Caribou is Canadian Dan Snaith (b. 1978), who formerly recorded under the moniker Manitoba. Known for altering his sound with each subsequent release, he incorporates electronic psychedelia, krautrock rhythms, and breakbeat drums and creates a swirling, lush, musical panorama.
Cooly G (Merrisa Campbell) comes from Brixton. She’s often placed within the growing UK funky movement, and her tracks almost always include a dancefloor-ready bassline. Her dad had his own studio which she used to play about with, so she’d learned to DJ at the age of seven and was teaching music technology to men three times her age two months after she left school. Her great debut was released by Hyperdub records.
Deniz Kurtel developed a deep love and connection to the sentiments of electronic music during her studies in the USA. Discovering the Wolf + Lamb parties at the now famous Marcy Hotel in Williamsburg in 2005, Deniz became an integral part of the duo’s life, parties, label and musical journey. Inspired by the label’s distinctly avant garde take on underground house and techno, she turned her attention to producing electronic music. In little over a year, Deniz has begun to dazzlingly innovate with her own forward-thinking and esoteric take on deep, sultry house and techno, and the results radiate with magnetism.
dOP is a brand new trio from Paris, which is made up of Clement Zemtsov (beat programming), Damien Vandesande (keyboards and horns) and last but not the least Lelli (lyrics and vocals). Having released two very highly rated EPs on Milnormodern and Circus Company in 2007 they became a highly respected artists on the scene.
With critically acclaimed releases already out on Night Slugs and Ramp Recordings, and his forthcoming debut LP slated for an early 2011 release, the future looks bright for Egyptrixx.
Taking the alien kinetics of UK garage, the euphoric highs of vocal house and the slow, sensuality of R&B, Holy Other has created a sound that’s as melancholy as it is beautiful, spectral and yet slightly at unease with itself. Playing the five songs that make up his debut EP ‘With U’ feels like a slow, solitary walk into the city night, lights flashing around you, muted when once they seemed to shine more brightly.
Calling yourself “Jackmaster” is nothing if not audacious, but Jack Revill lives up to the name with a fast, furious style of mixing that sets him apart—and helped him earn DJ Mag‘s Breathrough DJ award in 2010. His DJ talent definitely worth for hearing at Club to Club!
Starting in the early 1980s, Mills, using the name “The Wizard”, was a recurring guest DJ on The Electrifying Mojo radio show on WJLB. He performed DJ tricks like beat juggling and scratching during his sets, some of which were pre-recorded. Mills and former Parliament bass player “Mad” Mike Banks were founding members of Detroit techno collective Underground Resistance (UR), which embraced revolutionary rhetoric and only appeared in public dressed in ski masks and black combat suits. Mills never officially left UR, but did relocate from Detroit, first to New York, then Berlin (as a resident at the Tresor club), and then Chicago. There in 1992, with fellow Detroit native Robert Hood, he set up the record label Axis, and later, sub-labels Purpose Maker, Tomorrow, and 6277, all aiming for a more minimal sound than most of the techno being produced in those years. In his DJ sets, Mills usually uses three decks, a Roland 909 drum-machine, and up to seventy records in one hour. Mills’ Exhibitionist DVD, from 2004, features him mixing live on three decks and CD player in a studio.
Nothing but the Club as a musical and cultural lifeworld forms and defines the life of Marcel Dettmann, who was born in the GDR in 1977 and raised with east-german youth culture. Influenced by EBM and Wave he faces the offspring of virgin Techno in early nineties’s Berlin and gets socialized with this new-born subcultural scene, whose way of life he shall live and develop until today.
With a sound that has become emblematic for all that’s forward thinking in dubstep Martyn pushes a defiant out-of-the-box mentality into his every artistic venture, scorning genre convention and relentlessly embracing the new. Informed by a love for Detroit techno, Chicago house and hip-hop, encountering drum & bass in its mid-90’s golden era was the catalyst for him to develop his musical ideas and begin to lay the foundations of his career as a DJ & Producer.
Modeselektor is an electronic music band formed in Berlin, featuring Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary. The group draws heavily from IDM, glitch, electro and hip hop. Modeselektor produces all its material with self-developed software in Max/MSP and MIDI controllers.
David Kennedy’s work as Ramadanman and Pearson Sound has been a positive scourge on the airwaves this past year. His current deviation from any kind of conventional ‘dubstep’ template hasn’t come as a shock for anyone who’s been following his career from the start – he’s always had a particular slant and a percussively textured style all of his own that’s often layered with thick and potent bass frequencies and synth washes – but it seems like with recent material like ‘Work Them’ (released on Loefah’s Swamp81 imprint) Kennedy is simply toying with the world’s expectations of him.
Deep and minimal techno made by Regis and Function. There is no need to say more…
With only a handful of releases on Hessle Audio, Hotflush and his own Hemlock Recordings, London based Jack Dunning has made serious waves already. An Untold tune is highly distinguishable; all compact bass lines that punish and clean percussion that clicks and drives instinctively; finding a balance between meticulous detail, deepness, and pure dance floor sensibility that is very rare indeed.
Vaghe Stelle is the latest project by musician and producer Daniele Mana (born in Torino). In 2005 he was selected by RedBull Music Academy and flied to Seattle, for what’s the only real academy for upcoming producers. On the break-up of Nice Guys, Daniele Mana started his solo project The Pure: moody atmospheres, sparse IDM-inspired beats and intense melancholic melodies contribute to the identity of his productions. During these years, he also starts djing with the Xplosiva crew, with a residency bringing him to play regularly in Torino’s club nights
Zomby is both a purist and a perfectionist. One of the most talented producers of a generation and someone capable of negotiating skilfully between genres, be it jungle, dubstep, rave, garage or whatever tag you want to put on it.
