*SUNDAY, OCT. 13th Doors 20h    Concerts 21h*
*at Urban Spree*, Revaler Str. 99 12045 Berlin


One of the most captivating and individual characters on the electronic
scene today, *Nate Young* is best known for his work in the group *Wolf Eyes
*. As a solo artist, Young has refined his musical approach: bass,
synthesizers, organic electronics and raw unfeigned vocals to compose an
intense, slow-burning darkness at all the right moments. Deep, percussive
brutality and pulsing neurosis mesh with somber burial hymns, held together
by Young's technical prowess and mastery of his chosen gear. Each frequency
is given its own unique role and characteristic voice, deeply chilled by
the arid space of decay via tape manipulation/disintegration. Atonal,
morphing, and modulating bass lines pulse and plod their way through, like
the unseen presence of the undead ascending a creaking stairway, leading
upwards toward a nebulous void. This establishes a truly horrific
atmosphere while honoring primitive technology, refined with a thick dose
of originality.

*Keith Fullerton Whitman* is an american experimental electronic musician
and composer whose prolific work is bending genres from ambient music,
drone, electronic, drill and bass, musique concrète to krautrock. Recording
under his name since 2001 - active in the field of electronic music from
the early 90's under different monikers - his adventurous sounds has been
documented on labels such as PAN Records, Editions Mego, Kranky, NNA tapes,
Planet Mu or No Fun Production to quote a few. Mastering and pushing his
modular gear at the extreme, building up the intensity through complex
structures, sharp beats and far deep frequencies, his live shows are
recognize to drive the audience in to a complete experience, equally
physical and mind blowing.

*Chris Douglas* hiding behind *Dalglish*, O.S.T., Scald Rougish and several
other aliases is an unsung hero of electronic/IDM/experimental scene, for
about 20 years creating complex mathematical sound constructions charged
with emotion and full of wide sonic spaces. Having released albums OtJohr
and Benacah Drann Deachd on Highpoint Lowlife and Record Label Records, he
puts you in an entirely separate world full of unpredictable algorithms,
twists, mood swings and, of course, subtle beauty. Having a rich back
catalogue, Dalglish explored various corners and spaces of electronic
music, thus experimenting with different combinations of sound.

Produced in collaboration with UnReal
