    DON’T THINK I’VE FORGOTTEN: CAMBODIA’S LOST ROCK AND ROLL
    … tracks the twists and turns of Cambodian music as it morphs into rock and roll, blossoms, and is nearly destroyed along with the rest of the country. This documentary film provides a new perspective on a country usually associated with only war and genocide. ( Dir. John Pirozzi, 2015)

    ABOUT
     
    DJ KRITON
    … moved to Berlin in 1992 and became a vital member of the famous “Friseur Club”. He refined his DJ sets in numerous underground clubs in Berlin and in various clubs and venues in Europe and New York. In 2011 he became a founding member of Knuggles Recordings and started to produce tracks and remixes as one half of Homeless House. Until today DJ Kriton kept the vibe of house music alive and real. His mix is always inspiring and full of love and respect for the music, that he delivers with dance floor sophistication.

    BASSDEE
    Born in West Berlin BassDee got in touch with dance music in the late 80ies, a few years before the Berlin Wall came down. The G.I. Disco influences on the Kurfürstendamm Diskotheken, the engulfing Hip Hop movement and suddenly the Acid House wave aroused his inspiration to perform as a DJ. So he bought his first records at the PINKY record store, scratched together all his money to buy turntables to win the first merits in the science of mixing. The year 1989 changed his world inconceivably, when Monika Dietl was performing the best Dance Music Show at the West Berlin SFB 2 radio station, DJ Jon Magic Jonzon was spinning eternal house sets at the Berlin UFO Club, and the newly opened Hard Wax record store supplied unknown House Music from Chicago, Detroit and New York.
     
    BassDee´s first DJ club gig was at a Dubmission Party in 1991. In 1992, he started the Bassterror Project focussed on Breakbeat together with his brother DJ Feed and Alec Empire, while at the same time playing House and Techno at legendary clubs like the Berlin ELEKTRO (Resident), Friseur (Resident) or Tresor, and the Potsdam Waschhaus, where the Hard Wax DJs René and Pete shaped the probably most futuristic techno nights of that time. The enormous power of the breakbeat science hidden in the the big 1994 Jungle boom fueled things even further. In 1994 he started the admired Drum&Bass show “Radio Massive” together with Thaddeus Hermann at the Berlin Kiss FM station. His next major project was the Case Invaders record label initiated with DJ Bleed. Beside his residencies at the Berlin WMF, Elektro, Friseur, Toaster and Icon he dejayed at the same time in Berlins Clubs like 103, E-Werk, Maria, Ostgut, Cookies, Suicide, amongst others. As one of the creators of the famous Berlin “hard:edged” nights, he tremendously shaped Berlin’s Drum&Bass scene.
     
    Since Drum&Bass somehow lost its edge, he found his way back to the enthusiastic embrace of House and Techno and returned with full enthusiasm to the Berlin club scene playing at places such as the Panorama Bar, about:blank, Prince Charles, Gretchen, Horst Krzberg, WMF, M12. BassDee recently joined the Hidden Hawaii crew and co-produced the critically acclaimed Veteranenstraße EP together with Felix K.

    BABY VULTURE
    When BABY VULTURE raises her many voices it’s like a call, pure, long and throbbing. She digs, she excavates. In an almost archeological manner, she keeps searching for distinct tones and noises that she turns into transportive collages where fragments of sound, space, and time come together. Like stories sung by sirens. BABY VULTURE was born in Guadalajara, Mexico. She studied fine art in London and is now based in Berlin. Somewhere along the way she almost lost her head over musique concrète, her heart to Cathy Berberian’s voice and to genre-bending DJing. She worked as a multimedia artist and released music under the alias Cornerbred, a collaboration with DJ Magda. Another fruit of their liaison is the Perm event series that blends sonic and visual experiences into an innovative aesthetic experience. Finally, for other plash and silent roar

    ALEXANDRE DUPEYRON
    Since 2006 we have become “homo urbanus”. For the first in history the majority of human beings are now living in vast urban areas, many in megacities and suburban extensions with populations of 10 million and more. In 2010, I moved to Singapore and started working on “Runners of the Future”. This series repeatedly took me to Seoul, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Taipei, Shanghai and Beijing many times. Regardless of the city, it is the same absurd flight, the same noisy silence. I keep only an imprecise trace, a blurry image, like a distorting mirror we are all reflected in. This essay is creating a fictional megalopolis, as visual poetry, a photographic narrative questioning modernity and the position of mankind in concrete jungles. “Runner of the future” draws a unified fictional space in a dystopic metaphor of the generic city.
     
    Alexandre Dupeyron is a Franco-German independent photographer. Graduated from the Emi-CFD, Living and working between Paris, Berlin and Casablanca; after four years spent in Morocco to cover all Africa, two years in Singapore to cover Asia and one year in India. In his fine art photography, Alexandre focuses on the thin line between the visible and invisible, tangible and intangible. Through his discerning use of blur, he strives to extract from reality, a fragile instant of beauty and grace.
