Info (German only):
Nach zwei Parties in der Loftus Hall und dem erfolgreichen Einstand in der Grießmühle im November letzten Jahres, ist Escapism am 13. Februar erneut mit einem qualitätsbewussten Line-Up in der Grießmühle am Start.

Die bisherigen Veranstaltungen haben bereits die Richtung vorgegeben und so wird auch diesmal tiefgreifender, deeper Techno den Abend bestimmen. Escapism will den eingeladenen DJs dabei als Plattform dienen, ihr musikalisches Spektrum durch Spielzeiten von je mindestens 3 Stunden in einer Tiefe auszuloten, die ihnen in anderen Clubs mit ihren meist kürzeren Spielzeiten so nicht ermöglicht wird.

Leiras kann derzeit gestrost als Mann der Stunde bezeichnet werden. Mit klassischem Techno als Fundament seiner Anstrengungen, hob er letztes Jahr sein Label Ownlife aus der Taufe. Nicht nur besticht das Label mit seinen aufwendigen Artworks, sondern auch musikalisch ist es über jeden Zweifel erhaben. Das dachten sich wohl auch Sleeparchive und Peter van Hoesen als sie sich als Remix-Produzenten verpflichten ließen. Anfang Februar steht nun Release Nummer 3 in den Startlöchern, so dass 2015 schonmal vielversprechend anfängt.

Jay Quentin dürfte vielen als Mitorganisator und Resident-DJ der Abyss-Parties im ://about blank ein Begriff sein. Musikalisch bewegt er sich meist in der industrielleren Sparte von Techno und nimmt dabei auch gerne mal abseitigere Elemente mit ins Boot und schafft sich so seinen ganz speziellen, eigenen Sound.

Wie immer wird Escapism-Resident Manuel Münster den Abend musikalisch abrunden. Seit 2009 in der Berliner Technoszene unterwegs, konnte er sich vor allem dank seiner regelmäßigen Sets im Tresor einen Namen machen. 2013 hat er sich dann mit Escapism eine eigene musikalische Plattform geschaffen. Seine Sets sind zwingend tanzflächentauglich, aber immer mit einem Anteil Melancholie und Deepness garniert. Genau richtig also, um auf der Tanzfläche dem Eskapismus zu frönen.

Antime

 
 

Event:
Antime Labelnight | Berlin | 13.02.2015

 

Date & Time:
13th February 2015 at 10am

 

Line-up:
Spur live
Lola’s Bad live
Midimúm live
Abigail live
Konkrit DJ

 

Location:
Urban Spree, Berlin (Germany)

 

Admission fee:

Info:
It’s time to let that raging cat out of its bag and sink its paws in your faces: ANTIME is proud to announce the release of Spur’s debut album »Nowhereland«, set for a physical and digital release in February. Spur himself will stir up an ecstatic »dance of cultures« on Urban Spree’s floor to celebrate the occasion.

Spur will be joined by our favourite rioting grrrrl Lola’s Bad who comes all the way from Greece for one of her much talked about live shows. Or from L.A. Or London. Or from around the corner. We have no clue, really. We’re just glad she’ll be there!

ANTIME’s own Martin Steer (aka Midimúm) and label affiliated weirdo ABIGAIL will round off the evening with their highly energetic live performances which take cues from droning, polyrhythmic Techno (Steer) and jacking Acid sounds (ABIGAIL). Before, inbetween and after sets ANTIME’s communications officer konkrit will alternate between 35 and 45rpm, 70 and 14 bpm and -8 to +8%.

Spur
When young Spur first opened his mouth to emit something that would finally make sense to the world, it wasn’t a single word but a whole sentence. However, some twenty-something years later he prefers expressing himself through music. »Sometimes I really hate myself when I am talking – I’d rather say it with a chord or a progression of notes”, he says. Does he consider music to be an ersatz or maybe even a universal language? Not quite. »I see it as an extension of language.«

Lola’s Bad
Lola’s Bad is a Greek-born producer, songwriter, director, actress, filmmaker and former dancer/choreographer; a modern day auteur now based in L.A. via London. Her sound is a complex amalgam of Electro-Pop, R&B and Bass music, sometimes introvert and sometimes built for the dancefloor.

Martin Steer (aka Midimúm)
Martin Steer is the founder of the Berlin-based Electronica label ANTIME, guitarist in Frittenbude and sings in pandoras.box. His solo project (formerly called Midimúm) blends abstract, droning Techno with experimental guitar sounds in order to explore new utopias at the interface of analogue and digital means of production. Steer’s music is an ever evolving meeting place of futuristic sounds, dronescapes and sampled bits from the depths of the dark web surfing on noisy beats which occasionally give way to disembodied voices.

ABIGAIL
It’s time to finally fuck up the obsolete balls out discourse that’s been ruling the dancefloors once and for all, create an environment engendering horizontal and vertical individual experiences. ABIGAIL’s game for this kind of game as it’s ABIGAIL’s game. Sample aesthetics meet Acidic Techno. Come prepared.

Admission fee:

Info (German only):
Mit der 31. Ausgabe startet Grounded Theory am 16. Januar ins neue Jahr. Angeführt wird diese von dem Schweden Joel Mull, der sich mit Veröffentlichungen auf Drumcode, Truesoul, Audiomatique und seinem eigenen Label Inside einen Namen gemacht hat. Zusammen mit Künstlern wie Adam Beyer und Cari Lekebusch steht der in Stockholm lebende DJ und Produzent für den unverkennbaren Sound seines Heimatlandes. Seine Sets kombinieren treibende Basslines, harmonische Synths und energische Percussions zu einem mitreißenden und atmosphärischen Sound.

Ed Russell aka Tessela gehört zu den gefragtesten Newcomern der UK Bass Szene. Broken Beats und asymmetrische Grooves verraten den Einfluss von Jungle und Drum & Bass auf seine Produktionen. Neben einer Reihe 12-Inches auf Peverelists Punch Drunk, Perc Trax, All City Records und dem legendären belgischen Label R&S Records, rief Tessela letztes Jahr zudem sein eigenes Poly Kicks Imprint ins Leben und veröffentlichte die hoch gelobte „Hackney Parrot“ EP.

Seit 2010 produzieren Polar Inertia hypnotisierenden Techno, inspiriert durch eine imaginäre post-apokalyptische Zukunft. Das in Paris lebende Duo hält seine Identität unter Verschluss und steigert damit umso mehr das Mysterium ihres düsteren und einzigartigen Sounds. Für Grounded Theory spielen sie eines ihrer elektrisierenden Live Sets.

Lockertmatik stammt aus Dresden und veröffentlicht mit seinem gleichnamigen, 2011 gegründeten Label soliden Techno, der aus den klassischen Entwürfen der Achtziger und Neunziger schöpft. Aktuell ist er mit einem seiner Tracks auf Marcel Dettmanns Fabric Mix CD und der auf MDR erschienenen Various Artists Auskopplung vertreten. Zusammen mit GT Resident Milton Bradley vervollständigt er das Line-Up der ersten Ausgabe 2015. Bradley ist gebürtiger Berliner und seit nun mehr als zwanzig Jahren in der Musikszene unterwegs. Seine DJ-Sets sind dynamisch, innovativ und ebenso vielschichtig wie seine Veröffentlichungen, sei es unter seinem Milton Bradley Alias auf Do Not Resist The Beat!, dem Acid inspirierten Alien Rain oder als Hälfte des Produzenten Duos K209.
