After a mindblowing festival with great bands and music, Mannequin and Grauzone decided to give you a second chanche to dance at the GRAUZONE AFTERPARTY. With acts as Das Ding, Martial Canterel and Ron Morelli (L.I.E.S), all from different worlds, but with the same mindset and passion for the electronic synthesizer sounds. Planned also a special B2B dj set between the 2 organizers Alessandro Adriani (Mannequin) and Trish Trish (Grauzone). This all will take place at the Doka, one of the best underground clubs from Amsterdam.
DAS DING (NL)
In the early 80’s, Danny Bosten a.k.a. Das Ding released dark and danceable electro through his cassette label Tear Apart Tapes. His music was all but impossible to perform live in those days, but after he was rediscovered in 2007 by the New York-based label Minimal Wave, this ‘Dutch electro-pioneer’ is using modern technology to revive his classic vibes.
MARTIAL CANTEREL (NYC, US)
Sean McBride aka Martial Canterel is definitely one of the most talented artist in electronic underground music of our time. Each and every single song of him is just gripping. The music stands in the tradition of the cold -minimal and synth wave, but is characterized by a super-intense signature sound which is full of melancholy. The mysterious lyrics and the brilliant voice that seems to be absent and emotional at the same time add to the sinister mood of the tracks.
If you are only a little bit into Minimal Wave or Synthpop, you can't ignore Martial Canterel. And if you don't, this could be your entrance ticket into this musical territory!
RON MORELLI (NYC, US)
Raised on punk and hardcore music in the ’90s, he quickly grasped the allure of stripped-down house and techno, and soon enough discovered that New York boasts a strong DIY electronic scene despite the disappearance of its once robust dance music culture.
ALESSANDRO ADRIANI VS TRISH TRASH B2B DJ SET
Mannequin Records boss vs Grauzone princess at the turntables for a special cold wave and minimal electronic dj set!
GRAUZONE is a one-of-a-kind festival that unites the best of past and present, of fame and obscurity; where classic influential bands perform side by side with young upcoming acts.
The festival will be located at The Melkweg; this venue, which features several stages, exhibition spaces and a cinema, is the perfect place for the audience to immerse themselves in a rich world of distinctive music and contemporary art. All of this, right in the centre of Amsterdam.
Mannequin Records, now rebased in Berlin – Germany, is one of the most interesting labels devoted to synth wave and dark sounds. The label’s main purpose is to bring back to life and propose bands from this mostly undiscovered world. Faithful to the spirit of DIY, Mannequin releases are published in ultra limited artful packaged and hand numbered editions. Some of Mannequin Records productions include the legendary double compilation of Danza Meccanica plus all the Italian new wave artists related, like Monuments, Musumeci, Chromagain, Tommy De Chirico, Intelligence Dept and many more. The attention of Mannequin is also concentrated on new names, the label in fact released records from some of the most importart contemporary international acts like Tropic of Cancer, Mushy, Phantom Love, Survive, Deathday DUST, Sixth June, Void Vision, Police Des Moeurs.
