We open the festival at Urban Spree, an amazing venue which combines industrial aesthetics with a sweet, personal DIY flair. We are exceptionally proud that we could allure the UK based X-RAY AUDIO project with the presentation of their research about what arguably was the world’s first existing bootleg culture. It developed in Russia in the 1940s, where music was illegally copied on used x-rays stolen from hospitals. Apart from their presentation, some rare pieces will be exhibited and a cut on an x-ray will be produced live. Besides we present the world debut of TRANSFORMA & ANNO STAMM (alias Anstam), a performance of broken vinyl and record players by VINYL TERROR & HORROR, raw junk analog digital techno garage bass by excellent live performer Thomas Mahmoud Zahl alias M-F-X plus a whole bunch of other DJs and live acts, who we find outstanding.

fri, 29. 7. 2016 KRAKE CLUB NIGHT @ SUICIDE CIRCUS

::::::: mainfloor ALEC EMPIRE (atari teenage riot, digital hardcore) SAMUEL KERRIDGE (downwards, contort) CODEX EMPIRE (aufnahme + wiedergabe) – live FALLBEIL (hafenschlamm, contort yourself) – live KUNO & SPACEINVASION (terminal operations) :: visuals: THE29NOV FILMS ::::::: open air floor DJ GLOW (trust)

After opening the festival at Urban Spree on Wednesday, Krake Festival will kick off the weekend on the two floors of Suicide Circus with a programming that is as much punk as it is techno: ALEC EMPIRE’s band Atari Teenage Riot fused anarchist, anti-fascist and anti-Nazi vocals with techno and created a style which they called digital hardcore. We are excited to have him play tonight! SAMUEL KERRIDGE is the man behind Contort, a high profile label whose aesthetics can most easily be described as post-punk, offering dark and blurred perspectives on today’s society, visually as well as musically. His extended DJ sets are known for the variety of dark styles which he includes into his sets, whether it’s punk, wave, drone and sheer noise. FALLBEIL is a duo from Hamburg, which is known for their extremely distorted slow and heavy electro. They usually bring a whole bunch of instruments including tape delays and other outdated stuff to create their hard-hitting slo-mo grooves. British producer CODEX EMPIRE comes from the renowned Aufnahme + Wiedergabe stall and presents his mix between industrial and straight techno. Berlin’s newcomers KUNO & SPACEINVASION round the whole thing off – they all have found their place on the wide scale between punk and techno. Visionary THE29NOV FILMS will accompany this soundtrack with matching motion pictures. As a contrast to this dark show-off indoors, on the open air-floor we have VERTICAL 67 with his melodic electro and CURSOR MINER with his humorous fun mix of bass-heavy techno and electro as live acts, being interrupted by Neukölln’s DJ WORDS. The night will be closed by DJ GLOW, a DJ legend from Vienna’s scene of the 90s, who is still hot on the wheels of steel, also releasing interesting records on his outcast label Trust.

At night you will find the labels’ artists playing on one of the many floors indoors and outdoors. From weirdo electro to dark industrial techno, from new wave to house and IDM, everything will be there.

Come on down with us!
