    MENTAL OVERDRIVE
    … has been one of the most prominent voices of underground dance music coming out of Norway ever since his first outings of industrial rave on now legendary R&S Records in the early 90s. A restless experimenter, and once described by Juno as a “Weekend Situationist”, his latest full-length Hardware is a back to basics album with live techno jams recorded straight onto tape, which is reflected in his modular heavy improvised live set.

    //

    CHARLOTTE BENDIKS
    … focuses her sets on sexy dance and body music, drawing from a wide range of influences through classic house, disco, african house and latin beats. Her two solo EPs on Love OD Communications have outlined a vision of dance music minimalism, which she further deepens with her upcoming release on global groove provider Cómeme.

    JARNO VARSTED AND THE BACK SLIDERS
    For over a decade Danish native Jarno Varsted has been pushing his blues to people around the world in various outfits such as Straight From The Harp, Rumspringa. In recent years he has been working mainly as a solo artist offering stripped down performances accompanying himself on harmonica and guitar only, proving himself one of Europe’s most interesting renewers of the tradition. This time he has teamed up with legendary Berlin axe slinger Rico Lee, known from bands The Still and as a solo pefromer fronting his own trio. Rico and Jarno back each other on new arrangements of their songs along with new compositions. Together the form a powerful and charismatic package, leaving audiences in awe wherever they go.

    ELECTRIC ANTHILLMAN
    … spielen schnelle, kompakte quirlige New Wave Songs mit Elementen aus Disco, Funk und einer Portion Merkwürdigkeit. Kurioserweise spielten oder tanzten einzelne Mitglieder bereits Ende der 70er Jahre für Jane Fondas Gymnastikvideos und -Schallplatten. Sei dies auch nur ein Gerücht – wenn man die Band live sieht, mag man es nicht anders glauben!

    KILLING POPES
    … sind die Masterminds Oliver Steidle an den Drums und der Bassist Petter Eldh aus Schweden. Beide sind seit Jahren international hoch profilierte und angesagte Musiker. Petter Eldh spielt u.a.mit Django Bates, dem Trondheim Jazz Orchestra sowie Marius Neset und der Neue deutsche Jazzpreisgewinner von 2008 und 2010 Oliver Steidle ist vor allem durch seine Zusammenarbeit mit Der Rote Bereich, Peter Brötzmann, Philm, SoKo Steidle oder Klima Kalima bekannt. Beide verbindet eine Leidenschaft für rhythmisch orientierte Musik: Petter kommt sozusagen vom HipHop und Oliver hörte in seiner Jungend Grindcore und Punk. Musikstile, die zudem einen stark gesellschaftskritischen Charakter besitzen, wie der Jazz in seinen besten Jahren. Dies als stilistische Grundlage bieten die Kompositionen der beiden Alles, was den Jazz heute ausmacht: Rhythmisch komplex, catchy Melodien und Platz für Improvisationen. Der Wahl-Berliner Frank Möbus ist seit Jahren eine Instanz der internationalen Jazz-Szene. Seine Zusammenarbeit mit Carlos Bica und Jim Black, Daniel Erdmann und vor allem sein eigenes Projekt Der Rote Bereich, weisen ihn als uniquen, eigenständigen Künstler aus. Als Sideman bei den Killing Popes trifft er auf seinen langjährigen Wegbegleiter und drummer des Roten Bereichs, Oli Steidle. Kit Downes aus England erhielt 2008 den BBC Jazz Award als Rising Star. Er ist Leader des viel beachteten Trios Troyka und The Enemy (mit Petter Eldh und James Maddren) spielt mit Julian Arguelles, Benny Greb und Squarepusher. Dan Peter Sundland ist einer der vielversprechendsten Musiker der jungen norwegischen Musikszene. Sein eigenes Projekt mit Steve Heather, Philipp Gropper und Antonis Anessegos hat durchwegs sehr gute Kritiken bekommen.

    AMIGO TROPICAL
    Ich habe Amigo Tropical am Hochzeitsfest von Dina und Martin (=Kunstlerfreunde in Berlin) im Frühsommer gesehen, es war ein warmer, früher Abend, die ersten Biere waren gerade getrunken, als ohne Vorwarnung ein wunderbares, reinigendes Gewitter aus Krach, Breakbeats und Bass uber uns herfiel. Die beiden Musiker machten noch beim Soundcheck einen eher verspielten Eindruck, leicht verkleidet kamen sie daher, mit Stahlhelm und Schnurrbart, im Unterhemd und auch durchaus fröhlich. Aber mit dem ersten Ton setzte ein verzuckendes Lärmen ein, welches erst durch den Schluss der Darbietung ein Ende fand – zwischendurch gab es am laufenden Band neue musikalische Ideen in einem derartigen Stakkato, zerhackt und wieder auf den Punkt gebracht, dass euerm Autor dieser Zeilen der Mund offenblieb und er nicht umhin konnte die Burschen vom Fleck weg zu engagieren. Diese Musik einzuordnen oder zu kategorisieren ist in naheligender Weise schwierig. Anders als die zahlreichen Duos mit Metal-Hintergrund wurde ich die Basis eher auf Punk und Noise im besten Sinne sehen, industrial-brachialer Krach auf hohem intelektuellen Niveau – experimentelle Avantgarde mit Humor und Wissen. Mir kommen MERZBOW oder HELMET in den Sinn, der erste wegen seiner musikalischen Offenheit, die zweitgenannten wegen der rollenden und trotzdem hackenden Welle, die nicht aufhört. Oder VIOLENT ONSEN GEISHA mit ihrer totalen Abgedrehtheit. – SCHLOCKMASTER // Homepage

    MILE ME DEAF [AT/Siluh]
    Their new album is a swan song for the human race. In his previous albums, mastermind Wolfgang Möstl has hinted at his penchant for dystopic fictions that he links to the fragile status-quo of the current state of affairs. With Alien Age, however, he has abondoned the fuzz-and-thrash sound of his previous albums. Sampled beats and loops set the stage for his new album, reducing the 90s indie rock sound of past records to homeopathic doses. This time, dub, vaporwave, jazz and ambient come in the foreground. // Homepage

    JOLLY GOODS

    … has one of the most enduring and distinctive voices in modern rock music a voice like no other that can be heard in her work with some of the most groundbreaking underground bands, from Uzi and Live Skull to Come. Since 2001, Zedek has been making music under her own name, releasing a string of critically acclaimed albums. Her latest, Eve, is her most accomplished album to date, building upon the foundations of her previous releases. Again the album features her bluesy, gritty guitar work and her distinctive vocals that, when juxtaposed with graceful viola and piano, give the songs on Eve a compelling tension. Her lyrics remain deeply personal and her emotional fire is palpable, but she has developed a control in her delivery that brings new dynamics to the music and gives room for the emotions to breathe.

    UNHAPPYBIRTHDAY [Night People, DE]
    Falling a bit into an early Factory records mode, unhappybirthday use punchy drum machines to lock down the mechanical foundation of a sound that uses bright crystalline guitar lines to create contrast with somber submerged bass and synth fuzz. They have that upbeat sad song thing going that always feels so good. We can’t help but think if Jürgen Gleue and the 39 Clocks had made soundtracks for those early John Hughes films this is what it might sound like.
