ABOUT
 
ACUD STUDIO
 
Arabstazy, an artist collective founded in Tunis, will be celbrating the release of "Under Frustration“, a compilation which showcases their perspective on contemporary electronic music in the Arab world. Dance towards infinity to a new wave of North African and Middle Eastern futurist sounds!
 
As Arabstazy state, the compilation "…stands for the diversity of this scene, and deconstructs the occidental perceptions that sees the Arab World as a culturally united and homogeneous entity. It is a manifesto for the burgeoning wave of post-revolution futurism.“
 
"Under Frustration“ proposes an independent Arabic underground music scene that does not identify by a common aesthetic, genre, or musical style, but that rather searches for belonging and community in a joint struggle, in the frame of political, social and religious dictatorships, in a creative process that is born under frustration.
 
Arabstazy's floor will feature:
 
NURI - SHOUKA
A Copenhagen based producer and percussionist from Tunisia, Nuri is a rising star in the world of African futurism, mixing deep bass and organic percussion with polyrhythmic grooves.

METTANI & TROPIKAL CAMEL
mettani is the solo project of Amine Metani, a French Tunisian electronic musician who is also the founder of the Arabstazy collective, as well as the artistic director of the Shouka label. In his music, mettani takes inspiration from North-African healing rituals, blending the dark and spiritual, the brutal and poetic, uneven polyrhythms and soulful melodies. Berlin based Tropikal Camel blends percussive electronic elements with a psychedelic edge – a sound connected to both the past and the future.

DEENA ABDELWAHED [DJ, Infiné // think: North African Ghetto Bass]
Deena Abdelwahed’s approach to production starts with the question: "If the people who invented house and techno were Arab, and if they had grown up with Arab rhythms and instruments, what would it sound like? And how could Arabic culture sound in the future?" If you're wondering the same, come find out!

ACUD CLUB
 
"You know I also live on Torstraße?“ is how producer and label owner Daniel Haaksman applied to co-curate and host a stage at this year's Torstraßenfestival - a true indicator of the global and hyperlocal nature of our happening.
 
Since 2005 his label, Man Recordings, has brought dance sounds that emerged in the southern hemisphere, including Baile Funk, Kuduro and Reggaeton, to the global North. He isn’t currently searching for those sounds in Brazil or Angola, though. Instead, he’s working on a new album with international musicians in Berlin who operate on a similar sound spectrum.
 
We are thrilled to have him present the following line-up in the ACUD Club:
 
The artistic work of interdisciplinary, non-binary identifying, Sao Paolo/London/Berlin residing artist Cibelle spans a wide field, from melodic songs and conceptual works on identity to compositions exploring the deprogrammation of the self.
 
JOWAA
Minimal electronic sounds combined with afro rhythms. Detroit meets Kpanlogo. Or, simply, Jo Waa – which means „dance hard“ in the language of the Ga people of Accra.

GHETTO VANESSA
We were slightly surprised to discover that Ghetto Vanessa is actually a young man named Sönke Oberschmidt who used to play the marimbaphone and lived in the Dominican Republic. He released his first EP on the label run by Jamaican dancehall crew Equiknoxx, and combines Carribbean inspired beats with experimental club music.

DANIEL HAAKSMAN
In 2004, Daniel Haaksman began releasing the Brazilian „Funk Carioca“ in Europe and called the new sound that was exciting dancefloors worldwide „Baile Funk“. Since then, he has put out many different varieties of tropical bass on his label Man recordings, and combines those sounds from all over world in his DJ sets.
