In 2010 he had his first release on Vault Series with influences by this experience of the early techno culture. Later he also released on Speedy J’s Electric Deluxe or Prosthetic Pressings & Warm Up Recording.

He often works together with Sawlin so they already have 5 releases with tracks of their collaboration.

Acierate is also a DJ from Germany. He is founder of the event series Synoid – he and his mate Tham are the residents of the series.

Synoid already had such amazing artists like Teste, Stanislav Tolkachev, Escape to Mars. For the next instalment Acierate invited Takaaki Itoh.

Press Info:
Stützpunkt is again taking over Humboldthain Club, this time with multiple gems waiting for you on this heated july night.

We are most happy to have Boston 168 for their Berlin debut at Stützpunkt. Shaking up the techno scene for a while now, their last couple of EPs, released on labels such as Attic Music or Odd Even, have brought up a new dawn of Acid Techno. Originally from the former Italian working class town Torino, their origins to this day are heavily influencing their sound and perspective on music. Sergio and Vincenzo perform analogue live sets, which unite powerful, raw percussion and playful, ravy, acid synths, while always revolutionizing their previous production. Their approach on music is unique as they research it in a very precise way, always looking for new ways to create sound itself. It was only a matter of time until they play here in Berlin for the first time and we are excited that it is with us.

After performing at various Stützpunkt parties and also being part of our podcast series, Chami has definitely become on of the cornerstones of our collective. Born and raised in Morocco, he has been djing in front of huge crowds before moving to Lyon, France and truly discovering his passion for techno there. Now based in Berlin, he is able to showcase his talent on the decks through his highly energetic mixes, a term which is often used to describe DJ-sets but couldn’t fit anyone better than Chami.

Also our residents Background Radiation will be playing another DJ-set after already performing two live sets at previous Stützpunkt parties. They are part of our main core and are surely always one of the highlights at our parties. They have just self-released their first EP after receiving great feedback for their first track which they also self-released almost a year ago.

Counter Movement are a young duo from Berlin who will be starting of this Stützpunkt with their broad gathering of techno vinyl. They have recently started the new project ‚Mandatory‘ with two close friends. Their style range is big, so you can be excited for what they will have in store for you.

Closing out the night will be ReVenant with a very special 90s techno set. His fast and electric style is described best in his own words – straight Detroit. We are very excited for his closing, as it is definitely going to still make you dance in the early hours.

For the OBEN-floor we invited friends from the city of Lyon for a smooth night of house music. The city is special to us as two of our residents are from this southeastern French town.

Byche is hard to characterize, his style reaches from experimental housy tunes, over cheesy disco all the way to acid house, but it always hot and spicy stuff. His mixes consisting of his huge vinyl collection are always able to surprise us. After playing at clubs all over Lyon and France we are very happy that he is finally playing at one of our parties.

Bringing to you the beauty of disco are Minijob. The french duo is also coming over to celebrate with us. They take the era of disco and put it together with house to create music which when it is playing is hard not to dance to. They have also played all over Lyon and showcased their groove there before now coming to play for us. We are sure that they will make your booties shake.

Our very own resident OP/H completes the Lyon-lineup with a special house-vinyl set. Usually he plays techno and makes you rave UNTEN but this time he will admit his love for house music by mixing his favorite tunes for you. As the French always like to put a bit of cheese on everything, OP/H is doing no different with his music. We are excited that this time he is showing his other site for you.

Join us for this edition of Stützpunkt as we are super excited for this one. Bring it on!

Press Info (German):
Nach Jahren im Standard House-Techno-Normalvollzug ergreift heute Nacht Subspace die Ruder im Blank und setzt an zum Anflug auf neue und unterschätzte Spielarten elektronischer Musikkultur, mitten rein zwischen New-Wave, Synthwave, Electro und Acid.

Um nicht die Orientierung zwischen cosmic Synthie-Trips, melancholischen 80s-Wave und Elektro-Acid-Abfahrt zu verlieren, kommt 90er-Jahre Techno-Legende Kim Rapatti aka Mono Junk aus Finnland eingeflogen, um mit einem exklusiven Wave-Techno Set ein Zeichen zu setzten. Dazu feiert heute die Dresdner Newwave-Disco Geheimwaffe DJ Sneaker aus dem Hause Uncanny Valley sein Debut im Blank. Bekannt ist er auch für seine ‘Dunkeltier’-Edits klassischer Minimial-Wave Schlager, mit denen er gern und reichlich seine damit fast schon hybriden Sets spickt. Richtig live wird’s dann auch noch mit Jennifer Touch, die nach einem Opening der Berliner ed:son und yemed29 ihr neues Synth-Wave-Italo Album live performt.

Volle Kraft voraus!

Press Info (English):
Departing from the contemporary no-thrills-house-techno hegemony, Subspace takes control of About Blank tonight and heads off towards new and underrated styles in electronic music, straight into the middle of new-wave, synthwave, electro and acid.

In order to not get lost between cosmic synthie trips, melancholic 80s wave and electro-acid madness, we invited 90s-techno-legend Kim Rapatti aka Mono Junk to perform a very special wave-techno set. Having once been one next to Basic Channel and Robert Hood who paved the way for raw acid-electro-techno in the 90s, his recent releases on Forbidden Planet and Ratlife increasingly cross the boundaries of techno, wave and italo noir and make us very excited of his performance. Additionally we invited new-wave-disco maniac DJ Sneaker from Uncanny Valley, who is also known for his “Dunkeltier” interpretations of classic new-wave hits, which he often integrates in his thereby almost hybrid DJ sets. Truly live will be the show of Jennifer Touch, who will, after an opening set of the two Berliner ed:son and yemed29, perform her new synthwave-italo album.

15th July 2016: Escapism 09 @ Arena Club, Berlin (Germany)

June 15, 2016

Escapism

 

Event:
Escapism 09

 

Dates & Time:
15th July 2016 at 11:59pm

 

Line-up:
Eduardo de la Calle
Głós live
THNTS
Manuel Münster

 

Location:
Arena Club, Berlin (Germany)

 

Admission fee:
tba EUR

 

Press Info:
Since its inception in November 2013 Escapism is dedicated to promoting uncompromising high quality techno. As an addition to the regular club nights, it is now time for Escapism to turn into a record label with the first EP by our close friend Głós being scheduled for release on July 8th (see “Related Release”). To celebrate the release Głós will perform an exclusive live-set.

Eduardo de la Calle is one of those people who have never strayed off the path they have set for themselves. His devotion to underground electronic music has earned him massive respect amongst his peers as well as regular clubgoers, while his releases are flawless masterpieces full of subtle details and emotions. We are very much looking forward to his DJ-Set and are convinced that it will be as diverse and enchanting as are his productions.

One could argue that without Joy Division Techno would not be the same that it is today. This is most certainly the case with Głós. His music shares with Joy Division all those melancholic elements and latent aggression that made their legacy last. While he found early success with “Cut Throats”, 2016 will see him reach new heights. His beautifully fragile Ambient-EP “Filling The Scars With Light” already made heads turn and his upcoming EPs for Escapism and Ravage will surely end up in a lot of “Best of 2016”-charts.

THNTS may have only appeared on the Berlin scene two years ago, but he sure made his impact since then. Having been jointly responsible for the now defunct Apathy-series, he currently focusses on establishing the event series ESCH in Berlin while still being committed to bringing quality techno to Braunschweig with the Styx-Series.

As always, Escapism resident Manuel Münster will close the night with a driving, deep and emotional take on techno. With 6 years of experience and countless DJ gigs in the city’s various clubs he also holds down a coveted residency at Berlin’s home of techno, Tresor.
