Another highlight in the Palais Wittgenstein programme at the Roter Salon this February is local stalwart and D/B favorite Candie Hank whose very particular blend of electro samples and wonk-step always ensure a humorous, uninhibited and energetic performance par excellence.
Candie Hank (the mischievous alter ego of Patric Catani) has been messing up the musical landscape from Tokyo to Sao Paolo for some time now. It all started with a cover of France Gall’s ‘Les Sucettes’ in collaboration with Hanayo, followed by the albums Kimouchi on Gagarin Records, Brandy Cramps on the French label Wwilko, a CD release on Solzne Records in Russia (Messer Chups) and the Groucho Running Album on Sonig. Despite multiple other releases with A*Class, Very Impossible Person, Puppetmastaz, among others, as well as various theatre and film soundtracks.
As mentioned earlier, Candie’s life hasn’t always been all jet set and pure luxury, and of course, there have been one or two confrontations with colleagues. But even in difficult situations he always made the right decision in affect and managed to smash his extreme and grotesquely beautiful music smoothly and funky into the ballroom like a good bottle of wine.
Born in a Fun Park close to the Belgium Border and spending his youth among the Bayer Chemical Factories he had to learn about synthesizers very early in his youth to illustrate the palm reading sessions of his mother with dark soundtracks and scapes. Suspension – a burned stigma in the Candie Hank brain – the Enigma of conscious dead end roads jammed with junk and coarse gravel of the future. Salon music for Vampires a happy jellyfish tango of Laura Palmer´s secret step brother.
