    ELI VAN GOTTY
    Ein Spion ist Beobachter und Akteur, Feind aber ebenso auch Teil des Staates – je nach Standpunkt und Perspektive. Gotty findet heraus, dass seine Rolle in der Welt nur die eines Spions sein kann: beobachtend, teilnehmend und doch einer ganz anderen Sache verschrieben: der Musik. Über Trap-Sounds und Orchesterinstrumenten rappt und singt er gesellschaftskritische Zeilen. FRATZEN berlin veröffentlichen sein erstes Album „SPION“. Die tanzbarsten Songs davon wird er live zum besten geben. // Soundcloud

For this edition, we will explore Maggie Nelson’s genre-bending memoir and work of “auto theory’ The Argonauts.
     
    Written in the spirit of public intellectuals like Susan Sontag and Roland Barthes, Nelson binds her personal experience to a rigorous exploration of what iconic theorists have said about sexuality, gender, and the vexed institutions of marriage and childrearing.

    ABOUT
     
    STABIL ELITE
    Dieses Unbändige, Bodenlose, Bedingungslose im Tastenanschlag der Synthesizer und im Raunen der Bassläufe breitet sich aus wie ein sanfter Rausch: Ein Fließen und Überblenden von Tönen, die fluide Kurven bilden und künstliche Kanten finden. Perlen stoßen an Glas, sind Struktur und irrationales Treiben zugleich. Strenge wird zur Kontur, die das Haltlose rahmt. Inter-instrumentales Gleiten und Hard-Edge, das Echo einer Fantasie verschwimmt im Voranschreiten: Spumante ist ein Manifest gegen den Stillstand. “Was sind schon tausend Tage für einen Vollzug?” lautet eine Textzeile im Song “Alles wird gut”, simultan bitter und süß. Und soviel steht fest: Das zweite Doppel-Album “Spumante” von Stabil Elite klingt positiv, synthetisch, rationalistisch – und sexy. // Website

    RANCUNE
    … treads the line between 80s-inspired electronic sounds and new-wave songwriting. Influenced by garage rock, electronic body music and most things in between, these three French guys living in Berlin can’t choose between singing in their mother tongue, English or German. Playing with an assemblage of analog synthesizers, drum machines, plus an organ and a guitar amp, the three members take turns to sing songs of love, lust, grudge and culinary frustration. After forming in mid-2014, they started playing live in 2015 and have been recording demos to document their new-found sound and becoming imbedded in the Berlin music scene in the process. Rancune will release their first 7” single Freiheit mein Arsch / Putain de Problème on the French label Juvenile Delinquent in June 2016. // Soundcloud

    Taking inspiration from a panel they spoke on in February, THALAMUS will organise a conversation further exploring the pertinent need for more female, trans and non-binary representation in club and festival line ups, record label rosters etc. In the current discourse on the subject the emphasis is often on promoters roles in organising diverse line ups, this panel aims to include this and look further behind the scenes to the integral role agents and labels play to explore what can be done from their position, and what challenges they face.
     
    The conversation will be followed by a live performance, V.03. Artists to be announced.

    ABOUT
     
    BRIAN NOT BRIAN
    London via Belfast, digger and selector at heart, Brian Not Brian is one of those djs whose next record will always jump in as a surprise on the dance floor, may it be an obscure disco tune, an afro-funk jam or some left-field house track. As testified by an impressive selection of radio and online mixes (Boiler Room, NTS, Balamii) as well as an ever rising schedule of gigs, Brian’s dedication to discovering and sharing excellent music is not going unnoticed. As a natural evolution of his eclectic tastes Brian started his label Going Good in 2013, releasing a series of cross-genre records by the likes of Yoshinori Hayashi, Nummer, Moon B, Cloudface and Aquarius Heavens as well as compiling collections of tracks from the archives of Nervous and Bottom Line Records.

    SOLUNE
    Head of Bass Cadet Records, 1/2 of the house duo Arcarsenal, digger and dj, Solune is an absolute expert of soulful music. Having just showcased the depths of his project with a spiritual dance 12 inch followed by a blissful and introspective cassette full-length, Solune is ready to show his new self behind the decks, armed with the collection he has piled up in his years behind the counter at the Bass Cadet record shop in Berlin.
