ARTIST BIO (INFO)

MARCEL FENGLER (Berlin – Ostgut Ton – DJ set)

Techno according to Marcel Fengler has nothing to do with being a go-getter or having an alternative career, it is way more than means to an end: it is his definitive and concentrated passion.

In Marcel Fengler´s world, opposites attract. Ambient and electronica are equal parts in his sets that owe as much to the UK´s progressive school of relentless techno as they do to that special `Berghain sound´. A dictum created by music journalists and a description that is a diverging as Berghain´s resident DJs. Being one of them since day one, Fengler made his very own and self-confident contribution to that sound. He really knows his craft. Fengler´s DJ sets are characteristically offensive and dynamic, hard and consistent, but also surprising and emotional. In a realm that is dominated by technology and machines, his bright personality and the human aspect stay visible. You can feel his personal touch.

A similar versatility can also be found in his studio work. Marcel´s fondness for synth pads goes along with gloomy electro, hard and steady-paced techno doesn´t compete with his sense for moods and deepness. His search for different parts that work as a whole is as visible here as it is in his DJ style. Marcel Fengler looks for quality over quantity. Nothing leaves his studio that hasn´t passed this test. Neither artificial shortage of releases nor coyness, this behaviour is essentially Marcel Fengler: passion before purpose.

*

HENNING BAER (Berlin – Grounded Theory / K209 – DJ set)

Berlin has no shortage of producers, DJs, and party promoters, but few match the quality, consistency, and enviable range of Henning Baer. As founder and resident of the esteemed Grounded Theory party and booking agency, Baer has been at the forefront of presenting innovative electronic music in Berlin while boasting vivid DJing and production skills that have made him an in-demand artist in his own right. Recently celebrating Grounded Theory’s 25th party, Baer has a reputation as a thoughtful curator that is reflected in in the thunderous techno he’s released on his own K209 imprint, as well as on Adam X’s Sonic Groove and Psyk’s Non Series.

K209 was set up in 2011 in collaboration with Milton Bradley, with the first releases receiving rave reviews on Resident Advisor and leading to Baer being named one of Tea And Techno’s “Ones To Watch for 2012.” Baer’s techno is raw, dirty, and uncompromising, with an immersive energy that has made him one of Berlin’s most sought-after DJs. In addition to his own Grounded Theory parties, Baer makes frequent appearances at Tresor, Arenaclub, and Stattbad, as well as becoming a recent favorite at the renowned Berghain, where his sets explode with ballistic energy well into Monday morning.

Baer is moving onward and upward in 2014, with high-profile records such as his just-released Seltene Erden on Sonic Groove and more coming on K209 to add to an already significant discography. K209 releases continue to fly off the shelves at Hard Wax, with key selectors recognizing their quality and effectiveness as dancefloor weapons. As a DJ, producer, and promoter, Henning Baer is sure to be shaping the face of techno for years to come.

*

SIGHA (Berlin / UK – Our Circula Sound / Avian – DJ set)

Sigha is one of the Key figures to emerge from the newly resurgent UK Techno scene. Releases on James Ruskin’s Blueprint Label, Hotflush Recordings and Remixes for CLR, Perc Trax, Mikrowave, Echocord, Shifted’s Avian Label, and Token to name a few have blurred the lines between the abstract and the dance floor. A huge supporter of Vinyl, he set up his Our Circula Sound stable in 2010 to create a home for his specific vision of Techno. Sigha’s sound blends traditionalism with a deep take on sound design and atmosphere, and his ability to translate this into uniquely balanced DJ sets has seen him play regularly at the world’s most prestigious venues.

*

ALIEN RAIN (Berlin – Don’t Resist The Beat – Live PA)

Alien Rain is the result of Berlin techno producer Milton Bradley’s acid endeavours. Milton Bradley debuted in 2009 with his own imprint Don’t Resist The Beat!. Since then there have also been releases on Perc Trax, Prologue, Zooloft and others with music ranging from subtle beat experiments to industrial four-to-the-floor power tracks.The Alien Rain project has derived in a series of 12″ records, leading to conceptual live performances.

*

ORPHX (Ontario CA – Sonic Groove – Rich Oddie as Orphx Live PA)

One of the most highly respected acts in both techno and industrial circles, Orphx have been developing their signature fusion of hypnotic rhythms and experimental noise for the past twenty years. Using modular and analog synthesizers, software, location recordings and feedback circuits, Rich Oddie and Christina Sealey draw upon the darker, psychedelic fringes of electronic dance music and combine these elements with the experimental aesthetics and themes of early industrial music.

Orphx have gained an international following as one of the pioneering acts within the European ‘rhythmic noise’ scene and more recently came to the attention of techno fans through a series of acclaimed 12″s on Adam X’s Sonic Groove label along with remix work for artists like Perc, Oscar Mulero, Traversable Wormhole and Svreca.

Oddie and Sealey have performed around the world and are renowned for improvised live sets that combine software with modular synth hardware. Appearing at venues and festivals like Berghain, Tresor and Mutek, they have shared the stage with artists such as Alva Noto, Laurie Anderson, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Monolake, and Pan Sonic.

Orphx has released nine albums and numerous singles on vinyl, CD and cassette that have had a significant influence on many of the artists in the present wave of industrial techno. Building on a sprawling back catalogue that stretches across the divisions between industrial, ambient and techno, their recent output has demonstrated that they are both pioneers and innovators in the fusion of rhythm and noise.

*

DRUMCELL (Droid Behavior / CLR)

Drumcell is the founder of Droid Recordings and co-founder of Droid Behavior along with Vangelis and Vidal Vargas of Raíz. Since the mid Nineties Drumcell has been a firm believer in the power of techno and over the past decade become one of the America’s greatest champions of Techno and electronic music.

Haxan Cloak & Pharmakon – 5.15.14

Mount Analog & The Church On York Present: Haxan Cloak & Pharmakon – 5.15.14

HAXAN(1000px)

TICKETS: http://ticketf.ly/1prCCe0

The Haxan Cloak
In 2011 with the release of his debut, self titled album, The Haxan Cloak, solo project of multi instrumentalist, Bobby Krlic, appeared seemingly out of nowhere with an impressively fully formed sound that blew away most anyone who heard it. Recorded over the space of 3 years The Haxan Cloak was a wildly ambitious fusion of malevolent strings, junkyard found-sounds and primitive percussion, Krlic’s grand ambitions transcending the fact that it was all recorded in a shed at the bottom of Krlic’s parent’s home in Wakefield, Yorkshire. In the two years since the release of his debut, Krlic relocated to London and began working on it’s epic follow up, and Tri Angle Records debut; Excavation.

Pharmakon
Margaret Chardiet was born and raised in New York City. She has been making power electronics/death industrial music under the name Pharmakon for five years. As a founding member of the Red Light District collective in Far Rockaway, NY she has been a figurehead in the underground experimental scene since the age of seventeen. She points out that the environment there amongst so many other experimental artists (amongst them Yellow Tears & Haflings) inspired her to keep making increasingly challenging work. She describes her drive to make noise music as something akin to an exorcism where she is able to express, her “deep-seated need/drive/urge/possession to reach other people and make them FEEL something [specifically] in uncomfortable/confrontational ways.”

All ages

Timothy J Fairplay & Scott Fraser BIO

Crimes of the Future is a new label from Timothy J Fairplay & Scott Fraser, and follows on from their night of the same name at the Berkeley Suite, Glasgow and in Plastic People, London. Timothy and Scott both work out of Andrew Weatherall’s ‘Basement Bunker’ studio on Scrutton Street and are part of a group of dh’s becoming known as ‘The Scrutton Street Axis’. Timothy is also one half of The Asphodells with Andrew Weatherall who released their first album ‘Ruled by Passion, Destroyed by Lust’ this year on Rotters Golf Club. Over the last few years between them Scott & Timothy have released music on BIrd Scarer, World Unknown, Astro Lab, Emotional Response/Relish, Magic Feet among others. Crimes of the Future’s output is going to be harder edged and more up tempo than many of the labels both have generally been associated with, they want to express their love for leftfield house & techno.

Raudive (Oliver Ho) BIO

From the beginning on Blueprint records Oliver Ho has explored techno and house in its many different styles, ranging from the deep tribal sounds of the “Universal” album, to the dark abstract noises of his Veil album, to the funkier house sounds of his Birdland project.

All these ideas and sounds have been distilled down into the current project, Raudive. The sound of raudive takes the percussion of his earlier releases over the last 15 years and mutates it into a slower deeper sound, fusing the funk of house and the electronics of techno. The debut record on Klang Elektronik, “Audio ep” was closely followed by many releases featuring the Raudive sound evolving on record labels such as Klang, Music Man, Pokerflat, Cocoon, We Are and Macro.

Oliver’s unique sound has gained praise from many djs such as Trevor Jackson, Chloe, Laurent Garnier, Ricardo Villalobos and Sven Vath. In 2010 Oliver launched Wires, his new label which explores the areas in-between techno, experimental, post-punk and industrial new wave. The label continues to develop and embrace new style ideas and diversity, which is also reflected in the band, The Eyes In The Heat, signed to Ivan Smagghe’s Kill The Dj, a new project where Zizi Kanaan joins Oliver to create punk/disco/electro songs featuring guitar, synth, and vocals.

This attitude for bringing together the different dynamics of various genres is reflected in the deep and funky DJ sets Oliver plays at clubs around the world from New York to Tokyo to Paris and back to London.

Dreamweapon (review for recent release, Living Hell On Earth)

Although the newly announced batch of Opal Tapes cassettes includes expansively abstract techno from heavy hitters like Personable and Lumisokea, the assemblage also includes a slew of new names, including the likes of Manse, COIN and Body Boys. But one of these newcomers immediately caught my eye, with a name referencing an early spaced-out Spacemen 3 live jam and the Angus MacLise drone pieces that inspired the session. Dreamweapon’s experimental techno may not resemble the dreamlike runs of celestially sustained tones of MacLise or Sonic Boom & J. Spaceman, but the propulsive tones certainly do play up the “weapon” half of the phrase. With its debut offering, the project deploys obliterated runs of bleak techno and severely maimed electronics. Tracks like “When Blood Runs Thin” and “Living In Hell On Earth” plod through serrated plains of 4-4 rhythms while “A Sequence to Death” and “777″ splatter gray-scale canvases with muted, barely-present color and melody. It may not be what you came for, but the crushed sonics within leave nothing for want. It’s a buzzed spasm of callous grooves.
