Octobird: Baikonur EP | out on Pr0gramma Records

Vegboy Octobird's latest EP just got released on Pr0gramma Records.

"With a progressive blend of uncanny melodies and warping harmonics, the Baikonur EP feels almost like a computer data process that somehow got itself locked into techno rhythms. The organic timbre even lies oddly between raw synthesis and heavily processed acoustics. These binaries ultimately balance but provide a mysticism that uniquely destabilizes the listen. Particularly Baikonur and The Gate exemplify this eccentric mix of evolving musicality and an odd sense that it’s all just data being filtered through melodious substructures."

This is Octobird's second EP release after last year's 1st of Octobird.

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.
