A release party for the latest album on Berlin indie label monika enterprise: City Splits focuses on 2 of the most exciting up and coming artists from one particular scene.
[audio:JasminaMaschina_LoveYouMoreAndMore.mp3] The 1st installment in this new series, curated by Gudrun Gut, feat. chaotic one-girl band Golden Disko Ship & sonic folk from Jasmina Maschina. Golden Disko Ship & Jasmina Maschina will be performing songs from the album live at the release party in Ausland and a trio of DJs ensure this will be a great way to start the Easter weekend.
City Splits is a new series presented by monika enterprise. Whereas monika’s 4 Women No Cry series, currently on its 3rd acclaimed volume, is designed to unite artists divided geographically, City Splits will instead focus on one city and present two of the most exciting new musicians from that scene. Having recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of reunification and the fall of the Wall, Berlin was a logical choice for the 1st installment of City Splits: 1 presents two interesting female musician-producers who live and work in the German capital.
What Golden Diskó Ship and Jasmina Maschina have in common, other than the fact that they tour as a double-bill each not only supporting but playing on stage with the other, is their standing in the berlin scene. Despite their very different musical styles they both have strong followings certainly in their home towns and, looking at their relentless tour-schedule, presumably from further a field too.
With a trip to LA already planned for 2, City Splits offers a fresh take on the urban musical landscape and the Golden Diskó Ship / Jasmina Maschina record is a beautiful first leap into uncharted waters. In this difficult day and age where music is often taken for granted, monika for one is still not afraid to delve into the unknown and support new talents.
