It has been just over 6 months since the inauguration of the Pi Electronics vinyl series and here comes the label's launch party, at Berlin's OHM. This night will showcase artists involved in the label, such as Vofa's ANFS, Ontal - responsible for the forthcoming second EP (PI02) - and Damcase who is also soon to release the third record. Label father '3.14', along with Ontal and ANFS are on the dj duties, while Damcase performs live.
Doors of the event are open at midnight; Thursday, October 20
Ontal is a collaborative project which consists of Boris Brenecki and Darko Kolar, both hailing from Serbia. They focus on the bleakest, blackest apocalyptic techno and grinding mechanoid rhythms. Formed in November 2011 and influenced by numerous music genres, their sound can be described as an uncompromising, hard and intense assault. Breathing new life in the industrial strains of techno and the darker realms of the dancefloor and mind.
Dronelock and Ontal’s joint label venture Shadow Story is a base for the dark, industrial exploration of sound that all four corners of the British/Serbian double duo employ as their modus operandi.
DAMCASE, OR SUPER UNKNOWN IS A SOLO HARDWARE LIVE PERFORMER, WHOSE SOUND RANGES FROM OLD SCHOOL ACID CUTS TO AGGRESSIVE TECHNO TO EXPERIMENTAL NOISE. HE STARTED HIS JOURNEY BACK IN HIS HOMETOWN, THESSALONIKI, GREECE, WHERE HE BEGAN PRODUCING LIVE ELECTRONIC MUSIC, AND RELEASING HIS PRODUCTIONS INDEPENDENTLY.
ANFS somehow, somewhere along the way got sucked into the techno scene. He is involved in the co-ownership of Modal Analysis Label and participates in the Reform Party Series and Vanila.
His production isa sound collage of distorted textures, ambient drones and industrial drums hitting in tribal rhythmic sequences. In his set, layered tracks and various styles insert the audience in a hypnotised dance dominated by hard grooves, looped melodies and abstract techno sounds.
His second imprint will be soon released on Modal Analysis and his new EP on Inner Surface.
