D/B Recommended: Bass Contortion Pt. IV @ Tacheles Berlin / Friday, 26.03.2010

The first german show of Wisp, Aphex Twin’s favourite artist and Rephlex Records new poster child. Live in Berlin @ Bass Contortion Pt. IV

[audio:02 – Wisp – Trees Like Toys.mp3] His profile exploded last year after his two highly-anticipated albums Rephlex Records emerged, revealing new electro/IDM/breakbeat influences to his sound that is tweaked to move feet, tickle minds and break hearts on the dancefloor.

Making music since 1993, most of Cylob’s records can be called timeless masterpieces. He released on legendary labels, collaborated with legendary artists and he is, without hesitation, a legend himself. Expect nothing less from his sets.


With them on stage will be Hecq, Berlin’s bass boy-wonder. His musical oeuvre makes him one of Germany’s leading electronic artists, with albums discovering the fields of post-rave electronica to contemporary classical music. His upcoming EP on Ad Noiseam will set new standards in what we know today as Dubstep. Furthermore the united force of the Contortion and The Centrifuge crew will entertain you throughout the night, too.

Puzzle is our man from Sweden, bringing psychedelic hip-hop glitch-beats to the masses, Ziggy is as jiggy as usual and will contort your synapses with his bass extravaganza, Jade Monkey will show you that dubstep is an anagram for “freak-out” and Missaw will bring the funk in bottles and pour in everyone who is ready to boogie down.
