Press Info:
Over the past two decades, French producer and live performer, Terence Fixmer, has continued to evolve as an artist while maintaining his influential stance in international techno culture. With his last solo album, Comedy of Menace, already five years behind us, his continuous evolution has led him to produce his most introspective album yet. With this 10-piece composition Fixmer is able to tell a story from start to finish, with powerful, deep, dark, pulsating tones that are essential to his musical approach.

Depth Charged is a complete concept as Fixmer’s track arrangement takes the audience through various emotions illustrating how there is more to darkness than the dance floor. Beginning with a slow but heavy bassline, “Ellipse” acts as a perfect introduction setting the attitude for the album. “Fleeting Beauty” brings us fluttering chords amidst a serpentine drone, while the rolling bass of “Unforeseen” sends you into a trancelike state. “Purity” distracts the listener with its raw analog warmth filled with extraterrestrial energy. “Inside of Me,” exclusively selected by Marcel Dettmann for his Fabric 77 mix, followed by “Outside of Me” are both very dark tracks, filled with atmospheric suspense and quaking rhythms. “Beyond” is a pure exemplary of Fixmer’s signature style with an infectious progression sending anyone to the dance floor as “Pallid Light” follows its footsteps filling a bit more radiance into a modern techno sound. “Thoughts” shows another emotion of the album with deeper dub-like sonorities leading to the final track.

Concluding the odyssey is “Elevation,” the most melodic track of the album, beautifully deep, undulating and atmospheric, it is a breath of fresh air that brings one back to reality. Fixmer’s productions have drawn the attention to stimulate individuals in other artistic mediums, as the track was an exclusive selection of Raf Simons to showcase his works for Dior at the CFDA-Awards. Raf has been a very big supporter of Fixmer’s work since his first album in 2001, Muscle Machine.

Passionate of profound mystifying tones that rise and fall, Depth Charged is the epitome of unique expressiveness for Terence Fixmer. With darkness as a companion, each track has come from deep inside the soul; uncompromised soundscapes that promote taking risks.

Press Info:
Berlin based Mutewax Records strikes again with its eagerly awaited second release, Various Artists 02. Label founder Mutecell´s Cursed casts a long dark shadow over the dance floor with an electrifying and slightly acidic melody. Hector Oaks´ Reductions gets straight to the point with an aggressive and powerful followup to his last release on Key Vinyl. MSDMNR takes a more placid approach with Vortex Vapour, building energy with clear and crisp progressions. Urbano employs soft melodies to counterbalance a chilling Journey into an Unknown World.

[Special]: the29nov films TOP8 selected by Sebastian Kökow & Kevin Paschold

November 26, 2014
 

Notes:
In a few days the guys of the29nov will celebrate the 8th anniversary of their project(s).

Sebastian Kökow and Kevin Paschold, to give them a name :-), grew up both in a small town called Sonneberg which is famous for toy making. The town lies within in one of the most beautiful landscapes of Germany – Thuringia, but not much to do for young guys.

So they started a project called “the29nov” – organising events and playing music. Later the two school mates moved to the creative melting point Berlin to start making videos for techno tracks.

They became the very well-known duo “the29nov films” which is nowadays respected in the techno scene – from fans, artists and label owners. Besides creating videos Sebastian Kökow also tours as DJ spinning fine techno.

To celebrate their birthday we have this small special with their own favourite videos they created – each of them selected 8 tracks/videos.

 

8 Favourites of Sebastian Kökow:
Eomac – Spectre


Oake – Tenoun Rah Zan


Millie & Andrea – Back Down


Wolfgang Voigt – Rückverzauberung 6.3


Blind Observatory – And The Flying Saucer


Prince Of Denmark – (In The End) The Ghost Run Out Of Memory


Burial – Street Halo


DeepChord – Alfama


X 102 – Dione

 

8 Favourites of Kevin Paschold:
Proxy – Nanomed

Info (English):
It’s time to kill your boredom. Whether or not this is your target or not, tonight’s influx of Killekill will determine the intent and its implementation. With an artistic edge tonight bespeckled and illuminated by The29nov Films [forever], it’s a true happening. The29nov Films founders Kevin Paschold and Sebastian Kökow have paired their video editing skills with the work of hundreds of electronic music producers over the past few years, usually piecing together cuts from classic films and advertising and applying them to techno (or sometimes house) tracks. DJ Flush is the main man behind Killekill and has been a DJ for 15 years now playing more or less all Berlin clubs as well as internationally. Pushing the borders of electronic music, his mixes cross over from chicago jack and booty tracks to electro, from distorted no future techno sounds to rather minimal funk – dirty, freaky and often with a big drop of acid. The Snuff Crew has a house groove today that echoes perfectly the jacking source of the genre. When these guys with their black hoodies stand on the stage and deliver their all-but-authentic sound from their PA to the dancefloor, you can’t help but think that you’ve been transported to the house catacombes of Chicago! Yet these frontrunners are very much from Germany and proved their worth with their own Snuff Trax label. Producing music for more than a decade, Vienna’s Tin Man is the named master of the neo acid scene and continues to evolve and invigorate with each and every release. The California-born artist has six albums already released and is also part of The Acid Symphony Orchestra (a live super group that features artists playing on ten 303, 707 and 808), turning out a standalone neo-classical and ambient work, Vienna Blue, which proves he does so much more than pure dancing music. The mysterious ladylike lifeform known as Alienata has dedicated herself to learning & analyzing sound in all of its forms as well as joining forces on Traxx’s label Nation. Moving through Spain, Italy and Montreal, Alienata makes her home in Berlin for now. In the basement Tresor Floor two mighty heroes of modern techno await you: American artist Bill Youngman‘s “Electrostep” 1996 release on Serotonin Records stands as a testament to one man’s love of electro beats. Cutting, splicing and rearranging beats, he crafted an idealized rendition of electronica, much as Drum and Bass producers did with funk breaks. “Electrostep II” followed a year later, further developing the idea. After moving to Berlin in 20011, today Youngman presents his high-energy act worldwide, performing in front of audiences ready for an artist who will truly engage them. Dropping beats like bombs and weaving tsunamis of synth lines, he tops off his abstract and off-kilter techno sounds with authentic NYC hip hop elements: beat-boxing, freestyling and hyping up the crowd on the mic – thrilling! Neil Landstrumm is one of our club’s most loved artists: the Scotland-born DJ and producer is the epitomy of the adjective chameleon, creating a spectrum of electronic from bleepy, wonky techno to hip-hop, bassy dupstep and even reggae-influenced sounds. Irish import and Killekill artist Ian McDonnell aka Eomac also provides a live set of exciting and diverse sounds designs for the 22nd century; The 29Nov Films‘ co-founder Sebastian Kökow shares the basement decks as well as Irakli Kiziria Yacoub Chakarji aka I/Y‘s “machine sounds for sensible minds”. A KILLER NIGHT!!

Info (German):
Vor genau acht Jahren begab es sich, dass sich zwei Jungdesigner aka “the29nov films” der Videoflaute im Techno entgegenstemmten. Kurze Zeit später bemerkte die zeigeistverfolgende Szene-Internationale, wie das mysteriöse Grüppchen in unglaublichem Tempo DIY-Videos zu ihren Lieblingstracks schraubte und sie ins Netz lud. Die mit einfachsten Mitteln geschnittenen Kurzfilme bedienten sich dabei komplett aus dem unendlichen Fundus urheberrechtsbefreiten Materials. Die zwischen Träumchen und Horror pendelnde Trippyness der loop-lastigen Kollagen, die Geschmackssicherheit der Trackauswahl und die sympathische Straightness in Sachen Produktionstechnik ließen the29nov films schnell zu Szenefavoriten werden. Ein the29nov-Video wurde zum global wahrgenommenen Kudo. Das Berliner Label Killekill, mit seinem Faible für breit grinsende, garstig industrielle Acidelektro-Monstrositäten ebenfalls stark dem Punkethos verbunden, erkannte in den beiden den perfekten visuellen Gegenpart zum Labelentwurf und lässt seither regelmäßig zu ihren neuen Releases the29nov Filme produzieren. Die beiden tun sich an diesem 29. November, dem achten Geburtstag des Projektes, in unseren Hallen zusammen, um gemeinsam 4.000(!) Videos und acht Jahre bedingungslose Liebe zur Musik zu feiern – mit einem Line-Up, das keine Fragen offen lässt. Herzlichen Glückwunsch!

Press Info:
We‘ve all experienced a sudden, overpowering adrenaline rush before. Whether its petting a live lion, making intimate eye contact with someone or listening to one‘s dearest piece of music. In any case, it‘s generally a crystal clear, precipitating and addictive surge of emotion. Much like Josia‘s track Adrenalin, it leaves us begging for another high, and wanting more.

And more there is. For some, an adrenaline rush tends to be followed by a deep dive into intoxication. This state of altered consciousness is expertly recreated in Josia‘s track Tiefenrausch, where he develops an atmosphere leaving the listener in a dazed thrill, with complete loss of orientation.

Static Plate‘s take on Adrenalin is a call to all adrenaline freaks left unsatiated by Josia‘s rather short rush. This remix doesn‘t just add almost two full minutes to the show, it doubles the pace, taking the listener through a dark and industrial gallop.

Once again outdoing himself, Hey Joe‘s introductory bassline shakes all remaining foundations, leading into a frantic and raging beat. This version of Tiefenrausch is none other than an intoxicating adrenaline rush.

28th November 2014: Escapism 03 @ Griessmühle, Berlin (Germany)

November 20, 2014

Escapism

 

Event:
Escapism 03

 

Dates & Time:
28th November 2014 at 11:59pm

 

Line-up:
Fabrizio Lapiana
Caleb ESC
Manuel Münster

 

Location:
Griessmühle, Berlin (Germany)

 

Entrance fee:
10 EUR

 

Info (German only):
Nach zwei erfolgreichen Parties in der Loftus Hall kehrt die Berliner Partyreihe Escapism zurück und übernimmt am 28. November 2014 einen Floor in der Neuköllner Grießmühle.

Wie bereits bei den zwei vergangenen Veranstaltungen liegt der Fokus wieder auf tiefgreifenden, deepen Techno, der dabei aber auch immer die Tanzfläche im Blick hat. Escapism soll als Plattform dienen um Grenzen auszuloten und den spielenden DJs musikalische Experimente zu ermöglichen, die in größeren Clubs so nicht immer möglich sind. Dazu trägt die ausgedehnte Spielzeit von mindestens je 3 ½ Stunden pro DJ bei.

Fabrizio Lapiana fing bereits 1994 mit dem auflegen an. Genug Zeit also, um seinen ganz eigenen Sound zu kreieren und zu verfeinern. Sein Können stellt er mittlerweile nicht nur als DJ, sondern auch als Produzent und Labelinhaber unter Beweis. 2008 gründete er Attic Music, auf dem zunächst nur gelegentlich Platten veröffentlicht wurden, bis 2014 dann gleich 5 Releases den Weg in die Plattenläden und DJ-Sets fanden. Neben seiner Solo-EP „Antimatter 3“, die einen grandiosen Voices From The Lake-Remix beinhaltet, macht derzeit vor allem die D.A.N.C.E.-Serie von sich reden. Genug Grund um ihn aus Rom einzufliegen und die Gelegenheit zu geben, seine Version von Techno bei der Escapism vorzustellen.

Caleb Esc passt ja allein schon auf Grund seines Künstlernamens perfekt zur Escapism. Aber auch die Platten die er spielt, machen ihn zum perfekten Kandidaten für das Warm-Up vor Fabrizio. Er spielt gerne dunkel, deep und trippig aber dabei immer mit Bewusstsein für die Leute auf der Tanzfläche. So kam er nicht nur zu einer Residency bei der Staub im ://about blank, sondern ist auch auf Parties wie Abyss oder Apathy ein gern gesehener Gast. Wir meinen: Sollte man sich anhören.

Wie immer findet der Abend seinen musikalischen Ausklang mit Escapism-Resident Manuel Münster. Nach regelmäßigen Bookings im Tresor seit 2011, rief er 2013 Escapism ins Leben. Hier präsentiert er eine Idee von Techno, die düster und melancholisch daherkommt, aber genau die richtige Menge an Funktionalität beherbergt um auf der Tanzfläche die zeitweise Flucht aus dem Alltag zu ermöglichen.
