04NOV12: BLACK MAGICK vs BLACKBLACKGOLD ∞ DROP DEAD FEST X

BLACK MAGICK ≠ VOL. III
DROP DEAD FEST X

BLACK RAIN (US/JP, Blackest Ever Black)
YOUNG HUNTING (UK, Blackest Ever Black)
BESTIAL MOUTHS (US, DAIS)
RELIQ (DE, BL4CK M4G1CK)

DJs: Bill Kouligas (PAN) & Lower Order Ethics (Technokunst)
Sacred Space: Viviana Druga & xorzyzt

Bringing the dark to light, for it’s third year of Berlin necromancy, Black Magick presents the Berlin premiere of the reformed Black Rain (Ike Yard, Dominatrix) from New York whose soundtracks for ‘Jonny Mnemonic’ and ‘Neuromancer’ were recently re-released on London’s Blackest Ever Black, as well as the live A/V debut of Glasgow duo Young Hunting, whose cinematic industrial psychodrama ‘To Tear Apart Living Structures’ LP will soon be released on BEB. Los Angeles’ Bestial Mouths will no doubt eat you alive with their razor-sharp fangs and reliq’s ectoplasmic howl will deafen you again for the first time with a new line-up since last year’s Black Magick ∞ Drop Dead.

Selecting the most radical in rhythmic aural hypnotics is PAN Records head honcho Bill Kouligas and Budapest promoter Lower Order Ethics, no small names in the shaping of the music’s foreboding future! Psychic headspace redecorated by shamanic couple de rigeur Viviana Druga & xorzyzt.

The aftermath will be in the hands of BLACKBLACKGOLD and his hyper-hyper party crew Pictureplane & Shaun Bass (Destroy Culture)!!!

And on the Drop Dead main stage: Sad Lovers And Giants, Lene Lovich, Mani Deum, Aniaetleprogrammeur, Gemeine Gesteine, and Katz Kab!

And don’t forget PURGE feat. Deathface & CRIM3S on Oct.31!

31OCT12: PURGE @ DDF feat. DEATHFACE + CRIM3S

PURGE VII ‡ DROP DEAD X

ALL-NIGHT HALLOWEEN BLOODRAVE OF RITVAL BEATS + OKKVLT BASS + GHOSTSTEP + WITCH-HOP + DRACULACORE

DEATHFACE (US) live
CRIM3S (UK) live
N.U UNRUH (DE/Einstürzende Neubauten) (Drum Installation)

PURGE DJs: BlackBlackGold  ‡  Xorzyzt  ‡  Tom Ass

After a year of cathartic bass-binging, blast-beat aerobics and aural projections under the name PURGE, we now join forces with the mighty Drop Dead Festival to present a line-up guaranteed to make you sweat blood.DEATHFACE
Johnny Loves alter-ego DEATHFACE is pure assault. Basslines drenched in guts and bile collide with beats that will leave you shell shocked. With his latest EP From Beneath (Trouble & Bass), Love has transcended narrow genre expectations and created a new bloodline of industrial punk that will echo through generations.CRIM3S
When the tower of witch house collapsed and the dust settled there were a few choice acts standing tall. One of them is CRIM3S (formerly Story Of Isaac). And while others made half assed attempts on taking on new genres CRIM3S perfected the formula and kept on making damaged tunes that sounds like you’re just waking up from a bathsalt psychosis at a rave and someones face is in your mouth.N.U UNRUH (Einstürzende Neubauten)
Legend in the house. A ritual drum installation by one of the men who helped lay the foundation for all things industrial.

13OCT12: ITAL + STELLAR OM SOURCE @ Mindpirates

Ital live A/V show w/Aurora Halal

Stellar Om Source

DJs
Daniel Adeyemi (92 Points/Boiler Room)
xorzyzt (PURGE/#gHashtag)

VJ
Aanisa Ru

In support of his fresh Planet Mu release ‘Dream On’, Ital slices Daniel Martin-McCormick’s noisy past in Mi Ami and Black Eyes into a tight House-y 4/4 of mind-bending, body-contorting proportions; the live techno trip-out will be enhanced by the cosmically warped analog hall of mirrors VJing of Innergaze’s Aurora Halal.

Taking you by the hand into her interdimensional lazercave, Stellar Om Source will bring her signature synthesizer synaesthesia.

DJ Daniel Adeyemi of 92 Points and resident Boiler Room DJ, will be spinning the new breed of London’s overground with projections by Aanisa Ru and PURGE’s xorzyzt will summon the beats from deep within his psyche’s dark portals.
