What happend

 

POLYJAM
a pagan techno ritual and interactive experimental electro acoustic jamsession with musicians & audience developed by Gad Baruch Hinkis (Dirty Honkers).digital toys and live physical action. Aftershow with DJ. New performance, dec 14 at "Treptopolis", Berlin-Treptow
 
What if we could go to a party and directly effect the music?
Polyjam event sets itself the challenge to create a space in which audience and performers slowly transform into one organism. With the help of interactive digital toys, neo-traditional crafts, performances and tribal electro music, arises a mixed-media jam. Polyrhythm is the simultaneous use of two or more conflicting rhythms, that are not readily perceived as deriving from one another, or as simple manifestations of the same meter.

New in Berlin: BLACKBOX

 

Basement at SAVVY GALLERY

DOOR OPENS: 11PM, E: 3-5 eur


▼ A direct extension of SAVVY’s global outlook of contemporary art

and culture, BLACKBOX celebrates music of the subaltern, of groups

who are socially, politically, and geographically outside of hegemonic

power structure; focusing on modern electronic bass and club music

and traditional rhythms of Africa, South America, and Asia; fragmenting

and dispersing an outdated Eurocentric “cultural center” of the world

to encompass the entire globe.

Der Titel des neuen Albums «Politico» (übersetzt: «Politisch»), könnte den Nerv der Zeit in Mexiko kaum besser treffen. Seit einigen Jahren wird das 112 Millionen Einwohner zählende Land von einem grenzenlosen Drogenkrieg überschattet. Korruption und Verwicklungen von Seiten des Staates stehen an der Tagesordnung. Die Veröffentlichung des Albums in Mexiko fällt genau in den politisch umstrittenen Wahlkampf inmitten des Drogenkriegs.

*MARK ERNESTUS: JERI-JERI (Senegal)  

*KING AYISOBA & BAND (Ghana) 
*ZEA (The Ex) 

Thursday, 13.06.13, 20:00 @ Festsaal Kreuzberg | Berlin

 

 

Jeri-Jeri is the spectacular collaboration between the renowned Berlin-based producer Mark Ernestus and a griot clan of Sabar drummers from Kaolack in Senegal, led by Bakane Seck, along with guest Mbalax musicians and vocalists - including many mainstays of the bands of Baaba Maal, Youssou N'Dour and other top Senegalese artists.

World music aficionados will have noted Ernestus' remixes of Afrobeat architect Tony Allen and Kinshasa rockers Konono No. 1, and his co-compilation (with Honest Jon's) of the critically acclaimed Shangaan Electro showcase. On the quiet, though, he has become increasingly hooked on Mbalax, with its hyper-vivid Sabar and talking-drum work-outs, and sick, sequencer-like marimba synths. In early 2011 he travelled to Senegal and the Gambia, in search of original recordings. Through an unlikely set of coincidences, he ended up working in the legendary Dakar studio formerly known as Xippi, with more than twenty of the finest musicians in the country. The results will be released in 2012 and 2013 and proliferate in a series of unmissable live performances throughout Europe.

Jeri-Jeri's style of Mbalax is swingingly masterful - heady and hard-grooving, with highly complex, fiercely succinct poly-rhythms - an ancient-futuristic music, mesmeric but sharp as nails, super-charged with drama. Sabar traditions are fused with furious Afro-Cubanismo, hard funk-rock, and shards of high-life. Get ready to be knocked out!

LUSOTRONICS Festival, 18-19 May 2013 @ Club Gretchen | Berlin

Daniel Haaksman presents:

 

LUSOTRONICS FESTIVAL

Saturday (starts 23:00) & Sunday (starts 16:00), 18.05-19.05.13 @ Club Gretchen | Berlin

 

The two day festival “Lusotronics“ at Berlin´s “Gretchen“ club is dedicated to the digital, urban music lifestyles of the four main countries of the Portugese speaking world: Angola, Brasil, Mozambique and Portugal. “Luso“ is the shortening of “lusophonic“, the term for Portugese speaking culture (analogous to “frankophonic“, the term for the French speaking world). The digitally produced music genres that are currently emerging from these countries are part of a positive form of globalization, and represent some of the most promising and future oriented innovations in worldwide pop and dance culture.

The musical program will be complemented by the presentation of various documentary films and lectures which will give a deeper insight in local music styles of the lusophonic world and their hybrid electronic music styles. The festival will thus deal with the main issues, relations and dynamics of colonial history and post-colonialism, regionalism and globalisation, sampling and citation, copyright and creation, internet culture, as well as gender and identity constructions in the digital age.

Pax Nicholas. Representing the younger players, keyboard genius Kwame Yeboah, son of Ghanaian legend S.K. Yeboah, makes full use of Lovelite’s famed collection of Farfisa and Wurlitzer organs.

KONONO Nº1 live, 11 Apr 2013 @ Festsaal Kreuzberg | Berlin

Since The Devil Is Gone I Mostly Feel Lonely presents:

KONONO Nº1  (Congo/Crammed Discs) *
LIVE* 

SINKANE (US/City Slang) 
SPECIAL NO.1 Dj Team: J-Du and Jimmy Trash

Thursday 11.04.13, 20:00 @ Festsaal Kreuzberg | berlin 


Konono N°1's "Congotronics" album introduced the world to the strange and spectacular electro-traditional mixtures which are being concocted in the suburbs of Kinshasa, Congo. World music, electronica and avant-rock aficionados have all been equally amazed by this otherworldly music, which has driven the international press to come up with some surprising comparisons (from Can and Krautrock to Jimi Hendrix, Lee Perry and proto-techno!...).

 

The band was founded back in the 1960s by Mingiedi, a virtuoso of the likembé (a traditional instrument sometimes called "sanza" or "thumb piano", consisting of metal rods attached to a resonator). The band's line-up includes three electric likembés (bass, medium and treble), equipped with hand-made microphones built from magnets salvaged from old car parts, and plugged into amplifiers. There's also a rhythm section which uses traditional as well as makeshift percussion (pans, pots and car parts), three singers, three dancers and a sound system featuring these famous megaphones.

 

The musicians come from an area which sits right across the border between Congo and Angola. Their repertoire draws largely on Bazombo trance music, but they've had to incorporate the originally-unwanted distorsions of their sound system. This has made them develop a unique style which, from a sonic viewpoint, has accidentally connected them with the aesthetics of the most experimental forms of rock and electronic music, as much through their sounds than through their sheer volume (they play in front of a wall of speakers) and their merciless grooves.

 

Konono N°1's debut album was the inaugural release in Crammed's Congotronics series, which is devoted to the exciting electro/traditional musical hybrids from the Congo.

QUANTIC: 100 Prozent Funk, Soul und Jazz.

Quantic ist der Künstlername des gebürtigen Briten Will Holland, der sich seit gut zehn Jahren mit dem Quantic Soul Orchestra um eine modernisierte Wiederbelebung des Souls der 60er und 70er verdient gemacht hat, aber auch Jazz und Latin in seine musikalischen Exkursionen mit einbezieht. Während er früher noch als Gitarrist in diversen Rockbands spielte, verliebte er sich später insbesondere in Broken Beats und House und wurde im Laufe der Jahre zu einem begehrten Remixer. Im Jahre 2001 entsteht sein Debütalbum „The Fifth Exotic“, das einst auch Richard Dorfmeister als eines der besten Alben betitelte, die er seit langem hören durfte. Nicht einmal ein Jahr später erscheint sein zweites Album „Apricot Morning“, was u.a. erstmals von Alice Russell gesanglich unterstützt wird. 2003 gründet er das sechsköpfige Quantic Soul Orchestra, in dem er selbst Bass, Gitarre und Percussions spielt.

Parallel dazu entwickelt er zusammen mit dem Sänger Russ Porter das Projekt The Limp Twins - mit Sounds zwischen Funk, Soul und Folk. Inzwischen sprechen fünf Soloalben, zwei Alben mit dem Quantic Soul Orchestra, eine Platte mit den Limp Twins, zwei Scheiben mit dem Flowering Inferno, diverse Kollaborationen (u.a. mit Sharon Jones) sowie unzählige Remixe eine deutliche Sprache.

Außerdem hat Quantic mit „Magnetic Fields“ ein eigenes Label gegründet, das sich dem Heavy Soul und Deep Funk verschrieben hat. Seit 2007 lebt er in der Salsa-Hauptstadt Cali in Kolumbien. Nach dem Album „Tradition in Transition” mit seiner Latin-Funk-Band Combo Bárbaro im Jahre 2009 veröffentlichte er im April 2012 mit der britischen Soul-Sängerin Alice Russell, die auch schon zuvor auf seinen Alben zu hören war, die mitreißende Platte „Look Around The Corner“. Zusammen mit Delfonic, der La Chusma Crew und Marc Hype dürfen wir heute Nacht gespannt sein, auf wie viele unterschiedliche Styles man eigentlich tanzen kann.

For its first session in Gretchen, Strut invited Richard Sen (Padded Cell) for the second floor. Strut Records released last year, the highly acclaimed compilation "This is not chicago", that merge songs from the early days of acid house from the UK. The compilation includes British productions of the late 80s and early 90s, the sound of Chicago newly interpreted in their own way. Richard "Bronx Dogs" Sen will present a classic of this influential era of the UK rave scene that evening.

M.path.iq (We are.../De:Bug) will expand the sounds of this night along the rest of the Strut universe from Afro, to Disco and Latin.

Festsaal Kreuzberg, Monarch, Palomabar, West Germany, Blumenbar.

 "With DJ Zhao, Secousse Sound System (aka Etienne Tron of Radioclit) and Jess & Crabbe, the French Festival Les Siestes Electroniques bring to the ICAS SUITE a mixed bag of DJs and producer teams who have devoted many years of their time to fostering club-musical dialogue between Africa and Europa. That Africa is not only an essential source of inspiration for contemporary dance music, but also the cradle of exciting new music like shangaan electro, kuduro, kwaito or african house needs no further explanation"(program)

 

CTM co-founded the network ICAS – International Cities of Advanced Sound. In total, 30 organisations and festivals on 5 continents joined forces to (co-)create projects and foster discourse, and thereby promote artistic development at the interface of music, art, technology and society. Following the small but splendid ICAS KITCHEN, which cooked up the goods during CTM.11 for several days in the Palomabar, CTM is preparing to cater for a wide array of tastes and foreign tongues during the second Berlin Music Week (7. – 10. September)
