PANTHA DU PRINCE

Pantha du Prince feat. Bendik AK

Pantha du Prince

Pantha Du Prince is the solo project of Hendrik Weber, fusing house, techno & shoegazey indie on Lawrence’s introvert-techno label Dial Records.

Weber started playing guitar at thirteen, first playing bass guitar in rock outfits. He later moved onto electronic based music, first via a 16-channel studio mixer, combining drones with samples and a computer. These early experiments formed the basis for both his experimental music as Panthel and Glühen 4 as well as his techno as Pantha Du Prince.

Weber has released two albums (‘Diamond Daze’ and ‘This Bliss’) and various 12” singles under the moniker, each a bittersweet take techno that’ll appeal to dancefloors as well as living rooms. The house & techno side of the equation takes its cues from Detroit, Moodymann, minimal and acid, while the indie tendencies are rooted in My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive and psychedelia – he even rejigs The Chills jangle-pop ‘Pink Frost’ for the dancefloor on ‘Diamond Daze’. Weber also plays bass in the Hamburg band Stella, and the instrument is also given prominence on his recordings as Pantha Du Prince.

Pantha Du Prince has remixed Depeche Mode’s ‘Lilian’, Phantom/Ghost’s ‘Relax It’s Only A Ghost’ and performs live sets as well as DJs.

Releases thus far come from a wide array of artists including highly prolific names such as Kevin Saunderson, Dave Clarke, Oliver Lieb and Abe Duque to lesser known but equally talented artists such as Orphx, Realmz, Dasha Rush and Richard Hinge. Adam also has a lengthy discography of solo & collaborative music releases dating back to 1990, appearing on many famous recording labels over the last two decades such as CLR, Prologue, Peacefrog, Magnetic North, Wax Trax, Sativae, Scandinaviav just to name a few.

Alva Noto

Alva Noto, Born 1965 in Karl-Marx-Stadt he is part of an artist generation who works intensively in the transitional area between music, art and science. With a strong adherence to reductionism he leads his sound experiments into the field of electronic music creating his own code of signs, acoustics and visual symbols.

NOTON is a label founded in 1994 by Carsten Nicolai as a small imprint becoming active in 1996 with the release of noto “spin” record. In the same year the collaboration with RasterMusic begun and by 1999 the two labels merged into Raster-Noton.

By 2017 NOTON starts working independently releasing all back catalogue of Alva Noto and currently planning future releases. Diverse musical projects include remarkable collaborations with Ryuichi Sakamoto, Ryoji Ikeda (cyclo), Blixa Bargeld or Mika Vainio. Nicolai toured extensively as Alva Noto through Europe, Asia, South America and the US. Among others, he performed at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Centre Pompidou in Paris and Tate Modern in London. Most recently Nicolai scored the music for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s newest film, ‘The Revenant’ which has been nominated for a Golden Globe, BAFTA, Grammy and Critics Choice Award.

His musical œuvre echoes in his work as a visual artist. Carsten Nicolai seeks to overcome the separation of the sensory perceptions of man by making scientific phenomenons like sound and light frequencies perceivable for both eyes and ears. His installations have a minimalistic aesthetic that by its elegance and consistency is highly intriguing. After his participation in important international exhibitions like documenta X and the 49th and 50th Venice Biennale, Nicolai’s works were shown worldwide in extensive solo and group exhibitions.

ANASTASIA KRISTENSEN

Anastasia Kristensen

Anastasia Kristensen is an uncompromising force of nature that shifts sounds and tempos at a moment’s notice – providing a whirlwind of emboldened intensity that can be felt equally through her productions and DJ sets. Always the adventurer, the Copenhagen-via-Moscow producer has been at it for a while — finding inspirations from the likes of ballet to effusively digging for records to satisfy her curiosity. With her track “Spring Ballade” released on Nous Disques in 2016 and previous work with BLD and Monasterio, she only sought to move forward and carve out a path that would only broaden the scope for her reach as time goes on. It begins with her DJ sets – Kristensen starts with tone as the foundation; she weaves a web that incorporates barreling breaks, blistering techno and buoyant electro in scintillating fashion – inviting listeners to be curious about which strand she’ll weave with each passing track she plays. With featured mixes on Mixmag and Red Bull, as well as releases forthcoming in the year, Anastasia is determined to take even bigger chances and leap farther into the sonic spectrum of underground music – by never staying in one lane.

Apart & Amnesiac

Concept: Parts of Everyday Nature

Life is a perfect imperfection of occasionally composed melodies. Sounds raw, dirty, naturally polished by the current of everyday nature. Noises with meaning, sounds with feelings, natural rhythms, melodies of life. the mission is to find yourself with this expression, to become attached to you and become more sensitive, attentive and become part of your daily nature.

Apart

João Luís Gonçalves Simões, born in Figueira da Foz, Portugal, expresses through the production of electronic music since an early age, collecting references from different areas. Reveal’s an an abstract imagery taken from the techno plot suggested by sounds that intrigue winding paths. At the studio he is dedicated to unite dynamics of black spectra, distant and dense tones. Switches intense melodies broken by powerful forces that develop in enigmatic and seductive environments.
He´s resident at Festival Forte since 2015, played in some of the best clubs in Portugal, for example: Lux Frágil, Gare, Companhia Club.
Debuts on Soniculture in April 2015 with the EP PARADOX and a remix for the Volta Forte (Festival Forte Special Edition), alongside Vatican Shadow and NX1.

ART.ATTACK

ATTENTION EVERYONE THIS IS AN !..!.ART.ATTACK.!..!

WE ARE WHO WE ARE AND WE OPERATE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE THEORY AND ART OF ABUSE
WE RECYCLE PLACES, MATERIALS AND FUNCTIONS.
LEARN TO LIVE THROUGH THE ORGANIZATION OF SPACE IN A CITY IN A DIFFERENT WAY
WE INTRODUCE HETEROGENEOUS AND IMAGINARY ASPECTS INTO EVERYDAY LIFE
WE CONQUER SOCIAL SPACES, TRANSFORM COLD INSTITUTIONAL TERRITORY INTO WARM SENSORY PLACES.
WE CONSTRUCT THE VOID, CONSIDER THE BEAUTY OF “USELESS” ITEMS AND THE AESTHETIC OUTLOOK OF “OUT OF FASHION” ITEMS IN A CONTEMPORARY CONTEXT.
WE TEAR DOWN WHAT IS EXTERNAL, REACH THE INNER BEING, DREAM ABOUT A PLENITUDE WHICH IS CRE-ACTION, TRANSFORM-ACTION, TRANSLOC-ACTION.
WE PERFORM A DEFICIT IN TIME, FREE A SPACE WHICH IS PURELY IMAGINARY AND PURE IMAGINATION.
WE PRACTICE ACTIVE HALLUCINATORY PERCEPTION AND SOCIAL COLLAGE.
WE TAKE “OUT OF PLACE” AND “OUT OF USE” OBJECTS AS RAW MATERIAL AND OBJECTS OF ART. AND WHAT THIS OBJECT OF ART WILL BE GOES BEYOND THE COMMODITY. IT IS NOT AN INSTRUMENT OF INVESTIGATION BUT A METHOD OF MEDITATION.
WE TOUCH THE “MENTAL THING”.
WE SCULPT A METAPHOR OF THE PLENITUDE.

………AND WE STEAL FROM JEAN JAQUES-LEBEL…………

Festival Forte desvela más artistas

El portugués Forte Festival ha dado a conocer hoy nuevos artistas de su próxima edición y además ha desvelado su cartel por días a la vez que se ponen a la venta las entradas de día.


Babüshcka

Ron Guetta aka Babüshcka is a young Dj from tel aviv based in Leipzig Germany. His connection to music started while he was playing drums as a child in some jazz ensembles and bands. He always had some connection to electronic music, but his first introduction to dance music happened while he visited his big brother in Berlin, by the time he had shown him the basic principles of dance music and dj’ing.
Since than he found himself spending some time in Lisbon Portugal which became to be his second home, there he had the chance to play in parties and raves.
His sets are eclectic and versatile , floating around threw different genres like as disco to techno, trying to connect it threw the “same line” of structure, played by the energy on the dance floor.


BLUSH RESPONSE INTERVIEW

Blush Response

Blush Response is Joey Blush, a Cuban-American artist and sound designer hailing from NYC who now resides in Berlin. Blush cut his teeth doing programming work for artists such as Fear Factory, Rhys Fulber, Cristian Castro, and as a touring member of Joey Jordison (Slipknot)’s alternative rock project Scar the Martyr. A fascinating, vibrant new artist, frequenting the outer realms of post punk, industrial, techno, you-name-it and has a plethora of releases on cd, vinyl, digital and even cassette tape format to date on labels like Sonic Groove, Aufnahme + Wiedergabe, Ant-zen, and Total Black

The intention behind blush response is to always push the limits of sound, structure, and perception, creating a modern version of what he perceives industrial music to be: brutal, inventive, uncompromising and always innovative. Throbbing Gristle, Surgeon or Front 242 have left audible traces in his sound, and his goal is to recapture the core spirit of these originators, and then to evolve it even further. Performing on hardware synthesizers is a big part of the essence of Blush Response. His approach is very ‘hands on’ and thus 90% of the changes you hear on his sounds are done by hand without any automation. Blush believes in performative gestures over cut and paste editing, and strives to explore the limits of human-machine interactions. His live performances are 100% improvised and mostly unplanned which includes mistakes and happy accidents, and this philosophy is also reflected in his studio work.

Blush Response’s music is characterized by a heavy approach to sound design, combining rough, glitch-heavy beats with thick, distorted synths. Pounding, head-tripping kick drums intermix with abrasive, dark sequences generating huge walls of cavernous sonics. A pulsating slice of straightforward noise-filtered techno with a good dose of industrial and EBM influences while blush’s improvising skills enable a sound that blurs the lines between these genres. A barely tamed beast, biting and piercing holes in eardrums and somehow magically managing to make your feet tap along or, at considerable volume, rave.

IN CONVERSATION: BLUSH RESPONSE [SONIC GROOVE]

When you think of techno, your interpretation could range anywhere from the Resistance stage at Ultra, to the ”adult techno” of Kompakt, to weekend marathons in places like Berghain. For Joey Blush, aka Blush Response, his vision of techno is one of mangled industrial sounds, modular synths, and dystopian soundscapes.

When beholding the fierce and manic force of Blush Response within the walls of a pitch-black room full of other same-kind mortals, one cannot resist the sensation of absolute catharsis – it’s a space of an eternal now, where even the slightest thought is simply non-existent.

Une forteresse majestuese accueille les barons de la techno au Festival Forte

Quelque part entre Lisbonne et Porto, le festival Forte pose chaque année ses kilos de sons dans la cour d’un château, juché sur les hauteurs de Monte-o-Velho, un village médiéval. Le cadre pourrait se suffire à lui-même mais le Forte (30 août - 2 septembre) propose aussi une programmation pointue, ostensiblement techno.
