C12 – Friday
23:00 – 02:00 Emily Jeanne (Semantica Records I Belgium)
Drawing on a rich palette of techno derivatives, Emily Jeanne is crafting a unique space for herself amongst an expressive new wave of djs and producers. Effortlessly stitching together sets and productions that meld skeletal broken beats and propulsive 4x4 with moments of weightless ambient and heady drone music, the Belgian-Vietnamese artist is an agile operator in full control of her art.
02:00 – 03:00 Answer Code Request (live) (Ostgut Ton & Delsin I Berlin, Germany)
Patrick Gräser aka Answer Code Request was 9 years old where the Berlin wall fell. From his native town of Fürstenwalde, where Marcel Dettmann and Marcel Fengler also hail from, he tuned into DT64 radio and developed a fascination for English hip-hop, acid and early hardcore that eventually took him to Berlin's post-unification club landscape.
As he arrived in the Ostgut Ton cosmos and started his Berghain residency, he developed an hybrid techno, bass- and breaks-heavy, that meld ethereal harmonies, melodies and industrial sound palettes. His latest EP, Shattering, released in 2022 on Delsin, reflects (but does not sum up) his many influences, from drum’n’bass and emotional breakbeat to straightforward, linear techno and club.
03:00 – 06:00 Brodinski b2b Slikback (France & Kenya)
Slikback is a prolific electronic producer from Nairobi, Kenya mainly focusing on noise, bass and high intensity rhythms. Taking elements from different genres like trap, techno, gqom, trance and more to create his own unique blend. His wide range of sound can be found in his multiple releases that aim to be an expression of his emotions at the time of creation.
Louis Brodinski is a DJ, producer and key figure of the Parisian electronic scene. In 2012, he co-founded the Bromance label, which quickly became one of the most creative imprints in Paris. In 2015 he released his debut album, Brava, which brought together techno productions and American rap : a plunge into his desegregated musical world. Now aged 30, he splits his time between Paris and Atlanta, exploring the deep seas of electronic experimentation and trap music.
Together the two frontrunners released an EP called “LOSSLESS” in 2022. The result is menacing, energetic, noisy and danceable bass music that makes your chest rumble.
23:00 – 01:00 iced lattina (Kiosk Radio I Brussels, Belgium)
iced lattina, the musical alias of Brussels-based BIA, embodies the true meaning of unpredictability. Quick energy check: ambient to plugg music, muffled trap to severe drill. Distorted bass, always! iced lattina ends up weaving together auditive pleasures into one mystical soundscape that reflects the sweet chaos of her life.
01:00 – 03:00 ojoo (Brussels, Belgium)
Known for her eclectic combinations of styles and rhythms, Moroccan -born and Brussels-based ojoo (fka OJOO GYAL) has a knack for combining diverse elements into an engaging and infectious experience. A swirling cauldron of rhythms offering a spectrum of genres, from old-school dancehall to its most futuristic and distorted mutations, twisting through dub, reggaeton, dembow, grime, breaks, occasional excursions into noise, and more. It's controlled chaos that manages to be heavy, bouncy and sleazy all at once, with an enthusiasm that's highly infectious.
03:00 – 06:00 Skee Mask (Ilian Tape I Munich, Germany)
With 15 releases on Ilian Tape and a mix technique as impeccable as it is sharp, Bryan Müller aka Skee Mask has become in a few years a reference in adventurous music, constantly widening the spectrum of his work. Inspired by the sounds of the 90/2000s and labels such as Chain Reaction, Warp and Counterbalance, he oscillates between ambient, techno and experimental, and crafts releases that are true masterclasses: the brilliant Compro, released in 2018, immediately became a classic. Behind the decks, his incredible versatility and relentless mastery of organic grooves have cemented his reputation as one of the most exciting artists of the last decade.
