Losoul (Playhouse / Another Picture)
Losoul, his name instantly brings to mind associations with minimal or microhouse, of reduction and continuity, and consequently the now held legendary label Playhouse. This rings true for the early generation of electronic music lovers in particular but those that followed too, although Losoul is a most discrete legend.
Some still recall that Berlin is deeply rooted in Frankfurt with artists, who would later move on to form labels like Perlon and various more. Founded in 1993, Playhouse pre-dates those and Peter Kremeier alias Losoul would become one of the imprint’s key players alongside Isolée, Villalobos and others.
The sound they pushed was coined microhouse by music journalist Philipp Sherburne first and Playhouse came to define a new music genre for all subsequent labels such as Perlon, Kompakt, Spectral Sound, Force Tracks, and fabric to name a few.
Whether making music between all the zeros and ones, circuitry and cards, with analogue gear or digital possibilities becomes a valuable art or just a service, is defined through distinctive character.
Peter is a member of a unique guild of producers that always has been blessed with its very own sound signature.
One of his first and most famous pieces “Open Door” (regularly dropped by Zip) impressively exercises his practice of marathon jams that never go stale.
And most of all, the producer Losoul consistently pushes these majestically and stoical marching 12-inches as well as delicate album cuts which smuggle themselves equally into one’s musical memory.
Its our pleasure bring him back to Leeds xx
Nicola Kazimir (Les Points)
Nicola Kazimir is a multi-faceted artist that crosses genres as well as art in all forms with most ease. What might appear fragmented at first - is actually a true understanding of complexity, context, and a spirit that refuses restriction. His artistic affinities include fine art, running an off-space, writing, video, painting, sculpting, producing, and of course, DJing. The latter Nicola sees as “sound-curation,” a process he describes as "curating an exhibition but live and thus with a character of performance.”
Musically, Nicola Kazimir is one part of the Les Points collective, a unique group of artists based in Zurich. Together, they run the label of the same name and a party called Punkt. (German for point), which has been running since 2009, occupying different places but mainly the famed Zukunft Club.
Les Points, consider artworks like words and music as self-made by the artists, and Nicola believes, "that is what rave/techno culture was about before promotion processes took the rawness, the punk, away. Everything became too designed for my taste, too polished as people cut the errors away, which in fact represent themselves as artists."
We first seen him play at Toi Toi together with Audino Barbir & Louh as Les Point’s not long after that we started buying there records and fell in love with the sound’s they create.
We are so happy to bring him to Leeds for the first time.
