Tadd Mullinix—AKA JTC or Dabrye—is a man of many aliases, and Charles Manier, exploring old-school EBM sounds, is one of his most intriguing.

When you hear it, you'll know: the rough-hewn body music of CHARLES MANIER has its own unmistakeable snarl. Bold, bizarre, yet shrewdly effective on the dancefloor, his mutated analog excursions have become synonymous with a consistently fresh take on EBM and industrial. As one of the many personas that have sprung forth from the mind of Detroit-based Tadd Mullinix (alongside James T. Cotton, Dabrye, X-Altera, and a host of collaborative projects), he's released on such imprints as Ghostly international, Nation, and his own label, Bopside.
Paris-based DJ, producer and label boss MYN has worked steadily and quietly to establish himself over the past several years, both as an artist and a thoughtful selector possessing an international scope apropos of the digital age. Through his label Public System, he orchestrated 2017's double LP "All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace," which connected young artists from all over the globe working in the obscure realms of industrial, electro, and rhythmic noise. Already in the works is a follow up 3x12" that promises to extend that vision. His DJ sets are filled with slow, sexy New Beat, blown-out electro and wave sounds. As a producer he has released his debut EP, The Violent Poetry, earlier this year on Rotterdam powerhouse Pinkman.
ANDI is, simply put, one of the greatest champions NYC's wave scene has around. She has tirelessly organized her Synthicide monthly for nearly 5 years, while simultaneously growing it into a label, writing innumerable scholarly articles and talks on the history of goth, postpunk, new wave, etc., and rising to become an internationally recognized DJ and producer in her own right. She is now represented by the Berlin-based label/booking agency Veleno Viola.
Lost Soul Enterprises party & label exec R GAMBLE will close out the night in the main room. In 2018, in addition to traveling for his first West Coast and European DJ gigs, he has released a full length album on cassette on Primitive Languages, with a 7" soon to follow, and is included on a brand new V/A 12" just out on Mannequin Records.
As part of the enduring Remedy crew, AMOURETTE has proven herself to be a DJ of impeccable taste and versatile abilities ranging from avant synth pop & slow-mo body music to pumped up acid and electro. She'll be sharing the outer zone with NEUD PHOTO, aka Nico Nightingale, prolific electro and synthwave producer with a discography reaching back to 2010. His recent efforts have been picked up by Helena Hauff for a recent Return to Disorder 12", along with Melodies Souterraines and Pinkman sublabel Charlois.
