D/B Recommended: Prismatic Shadows @ Festsaal Kreuzberg | 03.02.2011

Thursday Night, Club Transmediale will feature shadowy acts of sonic independance. Obscure musical bricolages of Hype Williams and Dorian Concept or the precisely dubbed sounds of Raime.

[audio:Hype Williams – ooovrrr.mp3]The duo Roy Blunt and Inga Copeland aka Hype Williams quickly became “micro-celebrities” of their own genre, somewhere in the digital sprawl between Shoreditch and Neukölln. A play with all kinds of signs and sources that reminds of masterminds as Raymond Scott or Theo Parrish.

With a sampler full of disintegrating loops, mumbled dub poetry and somnambulant karaoke, supplemented by profound basic urban knowledge, a tendency towards weird voice samples and confused identities, the duo constructs tomorrow’s world from yesterday’s leftovers – “Pokémon – gotta catch them all!” Post Post music.

This notion of ecclecticism is shared by Dorian Concept, which is Austrian musician Oliver Thomas Johnson. Sported by Gilles Peterson he released on labels such as Affine, TLM, and Ninja Tune and is associated with producers like Flying Lotus or Hudson Mohawke. His highly improvised live performances have taken him around the globe.

A little easier to grasp, with a sound nonetheless is the duo Raime is the third exciting act of the evening. Drawing on deep-sea percussion, whisps of electro-smog and the sacred acoustics of factory halls, Raime create epic mechanical ballads, inspired by dubstep as well as Pan Sonic.

Also on the shadowy side of the street will be the open minded DJ producers Pariah and Falko Teichmann
