D/B Recommended: Human Elephant & Orchestra of Spheres @ Kater Holzig Berlin | Wednesday, 14.12.2011

A special night, that has been coming for a long long time, ten years since THE HUMAN ELEPHANT self-released his luxury cd-r album and he’s going stronger than ever.

[audio:xxx-xxx.mp3]From the humble basement beginnings in pre-gentrified Neukölln to his first vinyl release on mexican download label UMOR REX the long-term chicago exile John Donald presents a collection of beautiful new songs.

These have been inspired by the twilight scene of zero years berlin bohemia, his formative years on the occult illinoise scene as well and his love for the northern futurism of his beloved factory label. Expect epic kitchen sink dramas, gloomy post-punk minimalism, and a voice that would have made Ian Curtis cry.

The Human Elephant | 1726

Second band on the bill and perfect counterpart to the main man’s bleak visions of future past is the New Zealand collective of ORCHESTRA OF SPHERES, whose head-on collision of arkestra antics, krauty motoriks and afro-beat abandon will shake the crowd with one joyful noise aiming right at your dancing soul.

The dj entertainment will be provided by DEEP JACKAL, a superstar of the bass continuum in disguise, who will be playing a wild selection of sources and influences from one of the finest ethnodelic record collections known to man, to eventually lead the congregation into a whirlwind of worship and rhythm.
