At Zukunft we have been dreaming for over a year to bring you Kollektiv Turmstrasse live, and it is with our complete delight that we can accomplish this dream as we open 2010!
The German duo, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, are touring Europe bringing heavenly orchestrated and refined music to our souls. We’ll be bringing these grandmasters of contemporary and future electronic music to the 15th Edition of Zukunft along with Lorenzo Ottati for the initial warm up, Denwich (from Autist Records) bringing the sunshine direct from Sao Paulo, and of course our own Fady One & DJoFromBrussels to close out this amazing night.
Kollektiv Turmstrasse is a project by Christian Hilscher and Nico Plagemann from Lübeck/Hamburg. It all started as a typical apartment-sharing community in 1999. Both had been infected early by electronic music. Chris through his passion for collecting records and Nico through the early Tracker- and Demo scene.
True to the slogan "Youth explorers" they brew sounds inside the KTS laboratory, influenced by the Basic Channel at that time. Relatively quickly did they fall in love with the upcoming netaudioscene, that was so idealistic and became quickly a new way of publicity for the duo.
KTS produced in silentio until 2004, when no-response.org, a netlabel for free electronic music, was formed. In the following years, new plans were forged and their own sound has been rasped until 2006, when "Musik Gewinnt Freunde" came into life. Further releases followed on Ostwind Records, Connaisseur Recordings and of course…Musik Gewinnt Freunde.
