Various Vegetables Radio #63 | 303 Clone Wars

Once upon a time in a distant galaxy called the 90s, a group of young rebels fought against the reign of Stanza-Refrain-Bridge to practice the forbidden practices of Acid. Nearly thirty light years later, methods long believed to blossom flourish again on planets such as Acid Waxa, Midievil, Mechatronica, Central.Processing.Unit. and Vortex Traks. We have set out on a Journey to give these Brotherhoods a voice. May the Acid be with you!

Various Vegetables presents: STROMTRÆGER¹

Brought to you by Vetomat and Various Vegetables we proudly present our first edition of STROMTRÆGER. A regular event in which we stimulate the neural electronics between the auditory nerve and the brain with ambient and experimental sounds. In a cozy atmosphere you can either ground yourself after a long week or warm up the batteries before the weekly club marathon.

Saturday, May 12 | 20.00 Uhr at Vetomat | Wühlischstr. 42 | Berlin Friedrichshain

rui
rui carries a soft-fragile guitar, a lightly distorted mic, sensible sound sculptures and a hard working looper that dance in a repetitive ritual to the rhythm of rare beats forming a sonic wake-coma landscape where time slows down and your own stories unfold.

FlussPluss
FlussPluss is an Italian-born multi-instrumentalist. Whether on drums, string instruments or synthesizers, he always pays off with his very organic playing style, which is deeply rooted in the experimental and “krauty” sounds of the 70s. In his Ambient Setup he creates organic soundscapes with the help of strings, synths, loopers and various effects.

Vertical67 | Friction EP

Veglord Vertical pleases us with yet another Funky Acid Gem on Mechatronica!

"Vertical67 presents a set of funky, acidic electro grinders on the Friction EP. A longtime figure in the Berlin underground and frequent live act at Mechatronica's club nights over the past 5 years, Vertical67 fuses inspiration from IDM, electro, acid, breaks and jungle into a pressure cooker of an EP, with enough friction to move the mind and the floor."
