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.

Press Info:
Bryan Black is back on CLR with a new BLACK ASTEROID EP, this time in close collaboration with vocalist Wesley Eisold of the band COLD CAVE on the featured songs entitled “Black Moon” and “Here Comes Fear”. Both of them are excellent examples for a successful and tasteful crossing of genre-borders, a rare mixture of timeless song writing and cutting edge Techno. The haunting voice of COLD CAVE adds a warm and soulful feeling to the carefully crafted beats and atmospheres of studio wizard Bryan Black aka BLACK ASTEROID and it all results in highly entertaining electronic music with seriousness and depth. The third track on the EP is for all those who have learned to appreciate BLACK ASTEROID´s flawless blend of uncompromising Techno. “Freeze” is another milestone production, a manifestation of the outstanding skills of this experienced sound designer who started his career as the engineer of Prince and who later formed the critically acclaimed duo MOTOR. The final mix-downs were done together with Chris Liebing at his state of the art studio in Frankfurt, guaranteeing the same sonic brilliance we are used to from all recent CLR releases.

With the present EP, Bryan Black, the man who toured and recorded with bands like Depeche Mode and Nitzer Ebb sums up his personal history by bringing a feeling from the past back into contemporary music. Always paying respect to his Industrial and Rock roots, BLACK ASTEROID keeps sticking out in the current Techno scene and has once more proved his mastery as an electronic musician and innovative producer.

Press Info (English):
Schlammpeitziger’s album yields even more fruit. Six weeks after the release of his longplayer “What’s Fruit” Pingipung releases this 12inch EP with remixes. The motley set of six electronic musicians and bands dice Schlammpeitziger’s countless melodies into a delicious fruit salad!

Candie Hank (Patric Catani) deals with the title track “What’s Fruit” and beams the mantra-like vocals of the original unerringly to the dancefloor.

Andreas Dorau, the infamous hero of German New Wave music form the 80s, is a year long companion of Schlammpeitziger. He sings about autumn leaves, on top of the instrumental hit “Balcony Sofaune”, which is transformed into a disco piece by Dorau’s producer sdfkt. (Golden Pudel Club, Hamburg).

Springintgut dedicates himself to the complex melodic layers of “Pipe Claphorse”, waves a giddy tambourine and tops it off with a three voiced cello chorus.

The B side is opened by Mouse On Mars who turn “Balcony Sofaune” into an ever growing and collapsing bass monster, while focusing on the bold brass theme of the original.

Thomas Mahmoud Zahl slows it down with a headnodder. He thwarts the melancholy of “Schneid ein Stück aus der Zeit“ with a stoically bouncing beat, which dubs and grooves like it wants to go on forever.

Dub-Master hey (one half of Pingipung’s Hey-Ø-Hansen) sends the same track through his studio, offers new harmonies with his quiet acoustic guitar and sugars it all with a galactic vocoder.

 

Press Info (German):
Schlammpeitzigers Album trägt neue Früchte! Sechs Wochen nach der Veröffentlichung seines Langspielers „What’s Fruit“ erscheinen nun sechs Remixes.

Es ist ein feiner Obstsalat, denn Schlammpeitzigers Melodienreichtum wird aus unterschiedlichsten Perspektiven zerhackt und neu zusammengewürfelt.

Candie Hank nimmt sich des Titeltracks „What’s Fruit“ an und katapultiert die mantrahaften Vocals des Originals zielsicher auf den Tanzflur.

Andreas Dorau, langjähriger Weggefährte des Schlammpeitzigers, singt vom Herbst über den Instrumental-Hit des Albums „Balcony Sofaune“, der von Doraus Produzenten sdfkt. in eine Diskonummer verwandelt wird.

Springintgut nimmt sich die 1001 Melodien des „Pipe Claphorse“ vor, schwingt ein euphorisches Tambourin dazu und setzt einen dreistimmigen Cellosatz darüber. Die B Seite läuten Mouse on Mars ein, die aus „Balcony Sofaune“ ein immer wieder in sich kollabierendes Bassmonster bauen, bevor Thomas Mahmoud Zahl den Wahnsinn mit einem Kopfnicker wieder auffängt. Die Melancholie aus „Schneid ein Stück aus der Zeit“ konterkariert er mit einem stoisch bouncenden Beat, von dem man gar nicht genug kriegen kann.

Dasselbe Stück schickt schließlich auch Dub-Master hey (eine Hälfte von Hey-Ø-Hansen) durch sein Studio, schenkt ihm mit der Akustikgitarre neue Harmonien und zuckert das Ganze mit einem galaktischen Vocoder.

Press Info:
T C F is the moniker of Norwegian contemporary artist and experimental computer musician Lars Holdhus. His work explores themes of code, cryptography and privacy through the use of visual, sonic, built and written concepts.

Often the titles and descriptions of his work are written in cyphertext, the key to which is hidden within the piece itself. His forthcoming release on Liberation Technologies will further this cryptographic theme, consisting of digital and physical content containing the necessary keys to unlock the full meaning of the work.
