Diarmaid O Meara
Joining us for our third outing at Grießmuehle, we´ve got a host of heavyweight label artists to celebrate the release of Lars Huismann's Resistance EP.
Lars Husimann - Animal Farm / Binary Cells / Gobsmacked
Lars was born in Berlin in 1987. His Career as a musician began very early. At 11 years young he started drumming in different bands. After a few years he founded his own bands, playing different styles from jazz, fusion and all the way to progressive metal. His orientation on complex drum grooves makes up his foundation, while still being able to keep an open mind in regards to different styles and the ability to put them together to create a new form of art. It is an obsession in hard drilling percussion, banging synth-elements, and drums that roll together to create a more complex groove-pattern.
Luke Creed - Variance / Variant Electronic / Gobsmacked
Touring europe since he was 20 years old, while playing support to techno legends such as Dave Clarke, Joseph Capriati, A.Paul, DAVE the Drummer, Gayle San & Monoloc, and also holding his own as a reputable headline Dj.
As a producer, he has tracks out on labels like his own Variant Electronic, Naked Lunch, The Public Stand & more. Luke has remixed for established techno artists the world over, Including a bootleg of the classic Clarke track "Thunder" that received big support from the Baron of Techno. He has featured on EP's alongside tried and tested techno pioneers and has received consistent support from techno heavyweights including the great Dave Clarke, as well as A.Paul, Dubfire, DAVE the Drummer, Detroit Grand Pubahs & many more.
Luke's mentality towards music and djing is the defining factor in the presentation of his art, not exactly a "purist" in the typical sense of the word, he is a devout dissenter and you can hear it in his music. He does not try to keep up with music trends, sub genres or adhere to what people expect of him as an artist. Just listen to his music to feel the vibe he creates.

VIKI raised in Berlin, spent most of her youth in the punk and psychobilly scene.
Coming from the high energy of punk she found her path in club culture and electronic music. Her passion ignited her to mix and quickly landed her gigs next to artists like VSK, Morbeck, Joseph McGeechan, and in clubs such as Tresor, About:Blank and Suicide Circus, as well as residencies at WeCallItTechno and Claires.
She is a big believer that a good set takes you on a journey, just like a good book.
