This Friday Berghain hosts an outstanding line-up of artists from Aphex Twin’s Rephlex label to celebrate the it’s 19th anniversary and 2 years of Leisure System. Topping the bill will be Luke Vibert aka Wagon Christ and a special live show by electro scientists Dopplereffekt.
[audio:dopplereffekt – cellular phone.mp3]Additional live sets by Wisp and Monolith as well as Rephlex DJs round off this first class programme.
Dopplereffekt is an electronic music act which has been active since at least 1995 (year of first release). It is named after the German word for the Doppler effect. While the musical style and the act’s image changed radically during a non-release period from 1999 to 2003, two steady characteristics are the display of a thematic affiliation with science and the obvious use of pseudonyms and the hence rumoured but unconfirmed identities of the members.
The main member during all periods has probably been producer/ artist Gerald Donald alias “Rudolf Klorzeiger”. Donald is generally accepted to be also the author of the acts Heinrich Müller/ Der Zyklus, Japanese Telecom and Arpanet as well as one half of the band Drexciya (with James Stinson.

Luke Vibert is a British recording artist and producer known for his work in many subgenres of electronic music. He began his musical career as a member of the Hate Brothers, only later branching out into his own compositions. Vibert has recorded under several different aliases, most notably Plug and Wagon Christ.
Vibert’s first musical output was in a variety of bands, including a punk act called Five Minute Fashion and later a Beastie Boys-esque group called the Hate Brothers, but he quickly moved into the low-cost environment of solo electronic composition. Although Vibert originally had no intention of ever releasing any of the work, his reputation as a creative young voice in his field has created a demand for his work.
