Acud Macht Neu presents: the sixth edition of the creative development program Amplify Berlin features live sets from mentees Grinderteeth and Max Dahlhaus accompanied by their mentor Born In Flamez on the decks.
Born In Flamez
... is a Berlin-based producer and DJ who subverts gender and genre with a range of influences somewhere between deconstructed club, lofi pop, grime, and classical music. The project has released tracks on Infinite Machine, Monkeytown and UnReal and collaborated with the likes of WWWings, Ziúr and Modeselektor. They have produced with LA based noise trio Health, whom she also supported on tour. They also supported canadian multitalent OPN in Europe and co-curated CTM festival 2018.
… is a Berlin based audio visual artist and producer who while purposely focusing on contrasts like emotional and abstract, repetition and detail, opulence and minimalism, does not know any frontiers between those principles. Max Dahlhaus is not operating in the anonymous semidarkness, but there is always a person with a story emerging from his productions. „Finished“ is a word completely unknown to Max, he wants the audience to be part of the creational process- his visual creations support the music but leave a great room for interpretation and wonder. While his recent sound experiments lean on tech noir, he is not part of a scene or school, but an imperturbable maverick who is always finding the true mixture of his own intellectual world and the everyday life in a sizzling metropolis.
... is the Berlin-based solo project of Veslemøy Rustad Holseter utilizes live improvisation through sequencers, midi-mapping and Max Msp to build cathedral-verb drenched, noise soundscapes blending pounding beats with layered, manipulated vocals. Her no boundaries approach to producing, DJ-sets & sound works build experimental beat textures fused with harmonic live improvisation, exploring socio-political themes of intersectional feminism, gender, and sexuality often drawing in lines from mythology, human relation and current day politics. Grinderteeth is a core member of Berlin-collective 'No Shade', hosting mentoring and training programs for female, non-binary and trans DJs, and has previously presented work in Istanbul, Vienna, Brussels, London and Norway to mention some.

ABOUT AMPLIFY BERLIN
Amplify Berlin is a creative development program at ACUD Kunsthaus. Each month, Berlin-based emerging musicians have the chance to be mentored in composition, production and live performance by established musicians.
During each one-month residency, two emerging artists receive feedback and advice from their mentor, work in a private music studio, develop their live set in the ACUD Clubs concert space, as well as present an online radio show. Each residency will culminate in a live set performed by the mentees at a showcase event, on a lineup alongside their mentor.
Amplify Berlin is co-financed by the Europäischer Fonds für regionale Entwicklung (EFRE) and Musicboard Berlin.
Admission: 10€ presales (plus fees), 10€ door
