Grand Jeté is an electronic music series at OHM Berlin club, located in the industrial complex of Kraftwerk Berlin (in the immediate vicinity of TRESOR club). Started in 2014, this year’s Grand Jeté series will again present electronic live acts sharing the stage with several DJs on five Thursdays from July to November 2015. The participating artists come from different musical backgrounds, however all performances at Grand Jeté will have one thing in common: the exploration of rhythm and sound. A thrilling listening and dance event guaranteed.
Iron Curtisʼ pieces originate in a place simultaneously tuned to the sounds of Detroit, Chicago and Hamburg. Intertwining Deep-House with soulful Techno in a disturbingly enchanting manner, his sound moves in the equilibrium of reduced, but never minimal. Profound music for the dance floor! He is currently living in Berlin and releasing for Mirau, Morris Audio, JackOff, Retreat, and Mule Electronic.
Berlin based André Lodemann has been a DJ for more than 20 years. In 2001 he started to produce music releasing 12-inches and remixes on Moods n Grooves, Simple Records, G-Stone, Room with a View, Z Records, Freerange, Buzzinfly amongst others. Other highlights include remixes for Tracey Thorn, Omar, Akabu, Phonique and Vakula to name but a few. His DJ sets are deep and funky discovering the emotional and spiritual depth of Deep House.
Berlin based Chilean DJ and producer Chica Paula is known as a part of the Ruta5 collective along with artists such as Dandy Jack and Sonja Moonear. As a DJ, Paula started out as part of the Oceanclub collective and has since rocked essential Berlin clubs such as Maria am Ostbahnhof, WMF and Tresor while she has also played throughout Europe and South America.
The VSQ (I´m so blasé, Kalk Pets) aka Hanno Leichtmann is a producer and curator based in Berlin. When playing records in public he makes a selection from his small but well sorted collection. His sets are mostly electronic, between house, techno and related. And always some very obscure records find their way into his sets.
Grand Jeté is a project by Hanno Leichtmann, kindly supported by Musicboard Berlin. Check out our Facebook page to win tickets.
