DANZSHLAG turns 5 this year and to celebrate 5 years of mayhem, techno, cakes and jelly shots, from bars to clubs to warehouses, We really have an alpine treat in store for you….In the form of none other than DUALISM (LIVE)
Dualism will be playing LIVE for their first UK exclusive gig. The duo, Kwamina Roberts and Gabriela Bischofberger are based in Zurich, Switzerland where they run the celebrated record label NUMBOLIC, known for it's strong sonic penchant for complex, glitchy intelligent techno, as well as it's strong aesthetic vision. Their sound surprises with unconventional rhythm-structures and multi-layered sound-design.
Fresh from Zurich and sharper than a swiss knife, their uncompromising live PA will be carving some seriously wonky minimal beats, working their metaphysical magic, weaving the dance floor into frenetic binary opposition, dark and sweet, glitchy yet pounding, double trouble, so good it's evil, so evil it's good..
DUALISM (NUMBOLIC / ARCHIPEL / MASCHINE)
Dualism’s distinctive style and preference for idiosyncratic and broken sounds as well as the clever use of vocal-snippets is always present in their productions and performances. Their sound is minimal, twisted, queer-melodic, deep and wicked techno with much for detail. Their sound surprises with unconventional rhythm-structures and multi-layered sound-design.
Their delicate flair for avant-garde sounds earned them their debut release on Pheek’s label Archipel in 2006. They have since released on Monocline, Spielmann Musik, Revolver, Emote Music, Maschine, and remixed on the likes of Googoo records, Sintegra, Inminimax, Minitiaura, Autist, Simplex and more..not to mention their releases on Numbolic which has released a spectrum of fresh international talent in the form of Kane Roth, Display FM, D. Diggler, Pheek, Mandy Jordan, Canary Fontaine, Phillip Wolgast, Sebastian Koch, Suedmilch and Hidenobu Ito to name a few...
Dualism's uncompromising sound has sent them gigging globally, performing their live PA in Russia (Moscow / Rostov) - Slovakia (Bratislava) - Germany (Berlin / Stuttgart) - Italy (Milano) - Switzerland (Zurich / Lausanne / Bern / Lucern etc.) and at many other clubs or festivals and have played with artists like ‘Anja Schneider’ - ‘Exercise One’ - ‘Click Box’ - ‘Steve Lawler’ - ‘Bruno Pronsato’ - ‘Easy Changes’ - ‘Barem’ - ‘Gurtz’ - ‘Treplec’ - ‘Bern’ - ‘Gebrüder Teichmann’ The creative couple have also worked with well established musicians like ‘Franco Cinelli’ - ‘Jacek Sienkiewcz’ - ‘Butane’ - ‘Lineas De Nazca’ - ‘Alejandro Vivanco’ - ‘Cesare vs Disorder’ - ‘Pheek’ - ‘Seph’ - ‘Rudolf’...
So the question remains…
……Do you wanna punk with us..?

CHARLOTTE MICHELLE 11TH
The first time Charlotte stepped up to a set of decks she picked up the skill of beat matching instantly. She hasn’t stopped DJing since. Charlotte’s natural ability on the decks helped quickly secure her a series of bookings on London’s underground scene. She wisely invested her DJ fees further into her education, taking a DJ course at Point Blank, and then studying Sound Design and Music Technology at University of Arts London. This dedication has paid off as her career has continued to grow. She won 2010’s Techscover DJ competition; her DJ bookings have gone international with sets at festivals and clubs from Slovakia to New York; whilst she has also impressively played alongside established artists like Tiefschwarz, Claude Von Stroke, Oliver Huntemann, and Marc Romboy. In her adopted home of London she has secured two residencies in recent years, at the respected underground parties Tape and Jaded, which have not only helped develop her sound but also steadily grow her reputation as a DJ to watch out for.
Charlotte has a deep, warm, dark tech house sound, which she likes with added vocals or keys, and a deep kick. She is now working on a number of productions to follow up her first two releases ‘Afterworks’ and ‘Inspired’. Always looking to learn and grow she is focussed on working towards an album project and developing ideas to enhance her sets by playing live. With her talent and ambition, and as part of the increasingly respected Ifidota label, there is clearly much to look forward to from Charlotte Michelle 11th.
