Byrke Lou

Berlin

Byrke Lou produces electronic music, which is set in virtual, mathematical spaces. Her sound is fragmented, arrhythmical, raw and abstract, but also dreamy, driven dark and clean.She describes her genre as minimalistic arrhythmical electronic music, which is performed as a live coding session.Byrke Lou has performed in Lineups with Lady Starlight and DJ Koze and presented her work at the major European art + music festivals such as CTM Berlin and Ars Electronica. Byrke Lou was born and raised in Berlin and grew up studying art and physics, while immersed in Berlin’s clubbing scene of the early 2000s. She started making music by applying the knowledge she had from physics to sound synthesis and electronic components. She built virtual synths and microphones and used them to digitize the sounds of found materials or alien environments. Her performances recreate the virtual worlds she captured from digitizing environments. Between 2016 and 2019 she spent time in the dance and art scenes of NYC and L.A.Byrke Lou released a vinyl last year, as her first release, a very conceptual work, which features sounds generated from some of her black glass sculptures which she sonified by rotating them on a turntable. She is currently in her Berlin studio working towards upcoming releases, a VHS and an EP or album on a physical medium and has some collaborations lined up she is very excited about.

Catnapp

Berlin

Catnapp is the guise of Argentinian artist Amparo Battaglia. Doing her very own thing since many years, the Berlin based producer, singer/rapper and striking performer has already (self-)released a couple of records full of boundless creativity and originality before joining Monkeytown Records. She's taking whatever she needs from every electronic genre as well as pop and rap music. Amparo cites classic influences like The Prodigy, Aphex Twin, OutKast or Beyoncé, while her productions also draw from today’s post-internet and post-rap sounds. In a recent interview she said about her music: „On the one hand I just want people to enjoy a nice fat beat. On the other I also want them to receive the sensations I’m trying to transmit. Love, sadness, anger. I want them to get inside my story and make it theirs.“Catnapp’s musical vision is fresh and freewheeling, open-hearted yet confrontational. If she’s too strong, you’re too weak.

Daniel Brandt

Wiesbaden

Daniel Brandt, co-founder of acclaimed German ensemble Brandt Brauer Frick, released his second solo album Channels with Erased Tapes on October 12th.The seven-track LP is Brandt’s biggest statement yet, with the album’s thrilling avant-garde framework interweaving chord-driven techno, orchestral flourishes, rich electronic textures and hints of dark cinematic pop. Following on from 2017's Eternal Something, which captured a contemplative kind of isolationism, with Channels Brandt set out to create an album that captures the essence of minimalism whilst lending it to a more playful context. After performing and recording Steve Reich’s Six Pianos in a group of six, Brandt began regularly composing long meditations on the piano, something that permeates the sound of the new record. Its frenetic energy and shape-shifting identity was also born out of touring with his new band Eternal Something — comprised of Brandt on piano, drums and synthesisers, Pascal Bideau on guitar and bass, plus Florian Juncker on trombone — and a desire to translate both the sound and spiritual unity of their live shows in which musicians locked together to create an intriguing meld of expansive works.

DSTR

Leipzig

East-German electronic project DSTR will be releasing their highly anticipated new E.P. “RE-START” early 2019. Introducing an all new line up with three veterans of the electronic music scene – with members from Haujobb, Slave Republic and Audiotherapie – DSTR is back to infuse a fresh new sound to the German club and festival scene. Daniel Myer (Vocals), Alec Fu (Guitar, Keyboard, Vocals) and Niko “Molle” Kötzsch (Keyboard) played several shows in 2018 (Wave Gothic Treffen, Athens, Berlin and Leipzig) as a newly formed trio with great success, leading to the idea of writing a successor to the 2007 album “Loudspeaker” and “Silent World” (2010). With the new material, DSTR will push into a new direction but keep the driving vocals and beats, which have become their signature elements. The first reactions of the bands´ international fanbase to the new material was extremely positive, which proved that it was the right move to combine their individual songwriting skills. DSTR will be playing selected shows in the U.S. in March 2019, with a highlight appearance at SXSW in Austin, Texas.

Emma Elisabeth

Berlin

Gritty, naked and vulnerable - Sweden raised and Berlin based artist/songwriter/producer Emma Elisabeth makes guitar driven jangle pop filled with contrast. It's wild yet controlled, contemplative yet loud and elegantly messed up. A soothing and piercing vocal floats above a sound inspired by country and rock, fuzzy desert sounds and analog synthesizers with a minimalistic touch. A classic approach to songwriting manifests itself through heartfelt pop melodies matched with unapologetically personal lyrics. In 2018 she released the singles ”Soul Traveller”, ”Into the Blue” and supported bands like Sunflower Bean and L.A. Witch on stage. Her 6 track EP ”We Gotta Talk” was released in spring 2017, produced by Victor Van Vugt (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave). 'Unfurling with a gentle jangle, the crisp, spring-fresh songwriting can't fail to get under your skin” wrote Clash Magazine.'Somewhere between The Bangles, Patti Smith and Nots” - according to Cute and Dangerous Magazine.Emma Elisabeth originally comes from Höllviken, a small town by the Swedish sea side. After living in various places like Malmö and Stockholm she headed to Berlin where music turned into a full time career. Her nomadic lifestyle sparked different kinds of inspiration and collaborations along the way. This resulted in a variety of projects and bands throughout the years - a road of self-discovery culminating in her project Emma Elisabeth.

Gurr

Berlin

After releasing their award-winning album 'In my Head' in 2016, Berlin 20-somethings Laura Lee and Andreya Casablanca have taken over the world by storm. With their jingly Rock’n’Roll and kick-in-the-face-live-shows, the band has performed at Eurosonic, SXSW, The Great Escape, sold out shows in the UK and Germany and played a multitude of festivals including Dot2Dot, Latitude Festival, Dockville and many others. With 2018 came a busy year as well: Aside from beating off stiff opposition (The XX, Laura Marling & King Krule) to win the much coveted IMPALA European Album of the Year Award, the German duo have toured relentlessly - a sold-out headline tour and support tours with Kraftklub and Wanda in Germany and Shame and The Go Team in the UK - and still found time to work on new music. After releasing the no-nonsense anti-summer anthem 'Hot Summer', produced by Richard X (Roisin Murphy, Goldfrapp, Kelis), the duo has worked on a hand full of songs with producer Matthew Molnar, former keyboard- and bass player of the New Yorker Indie-Pop band Friends, who was also responsible for the critically acclaimed debut album of the New York band Sunflower Bean and its follow up. Starting the new year, Gurr will release an EP called 'She Says' that holds 6 songs. Its title track, 'She Says', will be released in January 2019.

JOSIN

Hamburg

Josin was born to make music, but it took her a while to find that path. Born in Cologne to opera singer parents, she initially opted for studies in medicine, before dropping out. “I always wanted to make music,” she insists. “But I never did dare to do it”.Moving to Hamburg, she immersed herself in the city’s vibrant, anarchic music scene, but found collaboration intimidating. “It made me feel very insecure, and I think after that experience I didn’t want to depend on other people,” she continues. “So I began to do it all by myself, even though I had no clue how to use a laptop, how to use Logic, how to play guitar. I just stuck with it.”“I think everyone is striving for an album,” she admits. “I’ve basically been writing towards ‘In The Blank Space’ for the last eight years. One thread that consistently moved through her work are those gorgeous classical elements whether that’s her treatment of melody on the supple, piano-driven ‘Once Apart’, her exploration of tone on ‘Feral Thing’, or simply incorporating a string quartet on the title track, ‘In The Blank Space’ points to the future while looking back to her past.Debut album ‘In The Blank Space’ owes a debt to her travels around Europe Josin and her partner load up their camper-van and drive across the continent, with the composer using these moments of remote solitude to prompt new ideas.

KOMFORTRAUSCHEN

Berlin

Step into the darkness. Can you taste the sweat-filled air? Can you stand the pressing heat? The driving energy grips you in a deadly embrace. Let the rhythm absorb you, your blood turn to oil. You become part of the machine, the machine that is driven by the motor of Komfortrauschen. Three precision-obsessed control freaks that have honed their craft to a German industrial perfection. An uncompromised sound welded together from propelling drums, deep unrepentant bass lines and a searing guitar that bites through like acid. They convert their mechanical energy into hedonistic live techno that is impossible to resist. Only thing is, there is no emergency stop!Komfortrauschen is a live band from Berlin that creates the powerful sound of a techno DJ set in their very own analogue fashion with traditional instruments, filtered through an impressive array of pedals and effects. Imagine a punk band trapped inside a drum computer, the Prodigy being a Berghain resident, Richie Hawtin meets Rammstein. The pure ecstasy and machine accuracy of techno enriched with the fresh energy and playfulness of a live band.Since the band was formed in 2014, Komfortrauschen have played regularly in famous German clubs like Sisyphos, Kantine am Berghain and Kater Blau as well as all over Europe and beyond. Now they're about to hit the stages worldwide!

Laura Carbone

Berlin

Berlin-based LAURA CARBONE’s latest single, “The Flowers Beneath Your Feet”, saw her joining forces to duet with Kip Berman of NY’s The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart on this sparkling, noisy dream pop diamond-in-the-rough.“The Flowers Beneath Your Feet” came closely in the wake of Laura Carbone’s critically acclaimed 2nd album 'Empty Sea', released this past June. Bolstered by recent tours with The Jesus And Mary Chain, INVSN and The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, on “Empty Sea” Laura Carbone delves deeper into the intoxicating mix of dark reverb-laden pop melodies, searing rock riffs and noisy feedback chaos hinted at on her debut album “Sirens”. Think Mazzy Star, Sonic Youth and The Doors sharing an endless elevator ride from the depths of the abyss to ethereal stratospheric heights and back again. Written partly in the gray claustrophobia of the German winter and finished in the vast golden expanse of the California desert and the gritty glare of L.A., “Empty Sea” boldly oozes the confidence and swagger of a survivor. Laura Carbone moves effortlessly here from sexy tribal stomp to delicate beauty, Brecht-ian mystique and beyond. Prepare to be charmed and disarmed, battered and bruised, to ultimately emerge from the depths of the “Empty Sea” grasping desperately for the “REPEAT” button.

Moritz Simon Geist

Dresden

Bass, Techno, and Robots! Moritz Simon Geist is a media artist, engineer and musician. Each sound in his mind-blowing performances is create by robots. Small motors beat on metal, 3D-printed robo-kalimbas vibrate with deep bass sounds, salvaged parts from old hard drives click and cut. Over several years Moritz Simon Geist committed to build, tweak, test and play all of his DIY robotic instruments.Geist’s ‘Sonic Robots’ push the boundaries of the imaginable and invent a new plurality in music creation. In 2012, Geist ventured into this exploration with the invention of his well-known oversized 808 robot. The MR-808 robot is an iconic drum machine gone physical, no longer dwelling in the confines of circuitry alone. A new idea in electro and human-machine interaction was born. Now, he goes even further to pioneer the unknown and futuristic sound world of ‘Robotic Electronic Music’.What Moritz Simon Geist came up with is a stunning performance of what is possible today – to explore the sound of mechanics that continually describe our world. Geist creates a smashing soundtrack for both the precise automation and physical fragility that shapes today‘s society.

Berlin

Berlin's new duchess of alternative pop Sofia Portanet brings Post Punk and Neue Deutsche Welle (German New Wave) into 2019 in her very own contemporary style.Signing to Berlin label Duchess Box Records (Gurr, Laura Carbone), Sofia Portanet made a big impact with her first two singles 'Freier Geist' and 'Wanderratte' with Germany's very own John Peel 'Klaus Fiehe' at WDR 1 Live announcing himself as a fan and being taken on by German booking agency Melt.Born in Northern Germany on the very day the Berlin Wall fell, 09.11.1989, Sofia was raised in France and Spain before relocating to Berlin. Bringing together her four languages into the music and lyrics she states the impact of German music on her own sound: 'I like the repetitive and minimalistic side of German Krautrock bands such as Neu! and the musical arrangements, lyrics and sounds from German new wave bands such as Ideal, DAF. I'm also truly inspired by the musical and visual craziness of French avant-garde pop bands such as Les Rita Mitsouko.'Sofia has a special vocal style mixing classical and opera elements with influences from Lene Lovich, Kate Bush and Edith Piaf.The end of 2018 saw Sofia Portanet performing with the likes of Gurr, Eddie Argos, The Aces and Teleman. 2019 is set to be a huge year for the starlight.

Suzan Köcher

Solingen

While the Moon Bordeaux is still shining bright there is already a new morning on the rise. Suzan Köcher's Suprafon are here to start the second chapter of their psychedelic journey that began with a magical debut album which was rightly praised as one of a kind. For the second record the band is now even more focussed on their true strengths. Inspired by a trip to Prague they wrote a song cycle that eventually gave name to the band itself: Suprafon. To maintain their focus on record they flew all the way to Austin, Texas to record their new album that is both - a natural evolution and a brand new start. While the energy of the band lingered around the corner on „Moon Bordeaux“ it is now in full flight on these new songs. The band's mystical Psychedelia is infused with beautiful melodies, biting guitars and reverberated analogue synths. Shades of Krautrock, Psych-Folk and French Pop float through their new songs that are at once enthralling and loose. Through their many live shows they have developed a unique sound fueled by Suzan Köchers magical voice, haunting melodies, fearless experimentation and an impressive arsenal of old rusty instruments that colour their sound in all shades of withered glory. Suzan Köcher's Suprafon invites you into a world that still has time for unforgettable experiences. Take your time and step out of the rush of daily life. Let them take you on a trip to the nearest far away place.

They will be touring Australia and Europe in support of the album and to collect and share new stories with local audiences. W&M’s music lives of the dichotomy of their voices and marries dreamy indie folk with electronic elements. The album was recorded when they packed their whole life into one car and went off for a long Swedish Summer. In Stockholm they met multi platinum, Grammy nominated John Andersson who became an instant friend and the producer of the album. They draw musical influences from artists such as Feist, Bon Iver and the XX. The LP includes the song ‘Static Pair’ which was chosen as the title track for the Game of Thrones exhibition Unseen Westeros in Berlin. The duo came to life after Stefany and Dennis met once upon a time in the Netherlands. She thought it might be fun to take him with her on a trip to the US, and that it might be a great adventure to explore the country through playing music together. She started booking gigs in the legendary Rockwood Music Hall and The Bitter End in New York, in San Francisco and L.A… and ended up playing in front of Harry Belafonte, who gave Dennis the compliment of his life: “Great tune you got there, son!”
