Be there or be very scared!...
Damien Schneider (Apologue | Micropunto Schallplatten) >>
Born in France, Damien has been into electronic music since the tender age of 11. In 2003 Damien moved to UK,
first in Cardiff and then in 2004 to Bristol. He decided to team up with several friends to create an audio visual club night
in Bristol called “Cuisine”. The idea was to present innovative and interactive events which would place equal emphasis on
the audio and the visual. At this time, Damien became known for his late marathon sets, gaining strong exprience
from playing before or after international artists including The Advent, Oxia, Stephan Bodzin, Tony Rohr, Dj 3000, Heiko Laux,
Apparat, Redshape, Arnaud Rebotini, Neil Landstrumm, Bruno Pronsato...
In 2008, Damien started producing music and his search for simplexity through music began. This idea can be described as the
search of the balance between elegant melodies, clinical sounds, dissonant noises and bass-heavy drums. And it’s to support this
exploration that Damien co-founded in 2010 the record label called “Apologue”, with Jamie Curnock, Jobody, and Patrick Bolton

Patrick Bolton (Apologue | Sonntag Morgen | Gynoid Audio) >>
One of the founders of the apologue imprint, Patrick's has had a fascination with electronic music for as long as he can remember,
with the focus being predominately techno. Early influences were Carl Cox, Billy Nasty, Dave Clarke the Detroit contingent, and
more recently the likes of Sandwell District, Ostgut Ton, Ben Klock, Truss, Perc, Monolake, Shed, Perc, , Zander VT ,
Redshape to name a few. Patrick's tracks contain experimental elements, without compromising on dancefloor appeal,
and the same can be said for his Dj sets.
Current projects include a combined set with fellow apologue founder Jamie Curnock, reducing tracks down to their bare elements
and reconstructing them live, to give a unique "on the fly" sound that even they cannot replicate the same each time. Patrick has
remixes, guest mixes and releases on labels such as Apologue, Sonntag Morgen and Gynoid Audio and Metroline.

DANZSHLAG presents FALLING COWS live [Germany] & DAVID LAST live [USA]
SAT 23rd JUNE | 8.30pm - Late @ The Moustache Bar, 58 Stoke Newington Rd, N16 7XB
For our steamy summer installment of DANZSHLAG we are excited to announce two upcoming UK
exclusive live performances by mooing duo from Germany FALLING COWS and our Yankee booty-shakin',
ass-jackin' jack-of-all trades, DAVID LAST.
FALLING COWS is comprised of Romain Favre, aka Moog Conspiracy, Head Cow at Elektrotribe Records
with releases on many labels including Tretmuehle, Doppelganger, Gatspiel, and Wasabi, and Grobi, aka Berger,
involved in the Beatplantation mayhem at Essen. Grobi has released on labels such as Elektrotribe, Eminor Binary,
Tonkind, Leubensfreude, and Ware. Their energetic live sets have earned them gigs in no less than the land of sacred
cows, India. Together the two have trotted the globe milking the dance floors dry!
DAVID LAST's resume is impressive, ranging from his visual arts background, to releasing all over the place on labels
such as Staubgold, The Agriculture, Foundsound/ Unfoundsound, and his own co-run label Konque, and playing all over
the world at festivals such as MUTEK (Montreal), cult-clubs like the Bunker (New York) and er, caves in Japan.
He promises to deliver a tasty mix of Latino-inspired grooves with a techy-twist,
exclusively for the shlag-floor.

Bunni's debut EP on VERYVERYWRONGINDEED!
"As equal opportunity idiots we don't like to make a fuss about the sexes, but we are dead chuffed to have a real
live LAST on board. Bunni Splanchnik runs, along with oppo Shibby Shitegeist, London's red hot Danzshlag parties.
As part of our return to our original mission statement, we are proud to present this first run of new names and faces.
We open this one with "Raw Sangha". No vegan shit here, just beefy murky wrongness that smells well east.
When hearing "Yahourt", the 3 pensioners in the office all as one jumped up and shouted "Day of The Triffids!".
We don't know why, but we love that they did.
We sincerely hope to hear more of Bunni on this and other labels in the future. So we bid her firmly launched,
smash a bottle of bubbly on her hull and say a prayer for all brave sailors. Everywhere.
Dance, you Slaaags!"
Geist a Go-Go - Shitegeist tours N. America
Shitegeist can't help herself... so, when the very last minute opportunity to visit the States presented itself,
she jumped over the pond to play gigs in Denver alongside previous Shlag guest DAEGON, then Tijuana (Mexico)
to share the bill with future Shlag guest DAVID LAST... Fun was most certainly had. Her next stop was Toronto, where
she was invited to play for StudioFeed Radio. You can watch a video of that here. Following this she visited Montreal,
where she had the pleasure of playing for Mini Malice on her birthday with DAOUST and FANCYFHREEK. PROPER!

5 Yrs of DANZSHLAG presents DUALISM live [Switzerland]
SAT 21st APRIL | 10pm - 6am
from bars to clubs to warehouses, we really have an alpine treat in store for you….
In the form of none other than DUALISM (LIVE).
Dualism will be playing LIVE for their first UK exclusive gig. The duo, Kwamina Roberts and Gabriela Bischofberger are based in Zurich,
Switzerland where they run the celebrated record label NUMBOLIC, known for it's strong sonic penchant for complex, glitchy intelligent
techno, as well as it's strong aesthetic vision. Their sound surprises with unconventional rhythm-structures and multi-layered sound-design.
Fresh from Zurich and sharper than a swiss knife, their uncompromising live PA will be carving some seriously wonky minimal beats, working
their metaphysical magic, weaving the dance floor into frenetic binary opposition, dark and sweet, glitchy yet pounding, double trouble,
so good it's evil, so evil it's good...

DUALISM (NUMBOLIC / ARCHIPEL / MASCHINE)
Dualism’s distinctive style and preference for idiosyncratic and broken sounds as well as the clever use of vocal-snippets is always present
in their productions and performances. Their sound is minimal, twisted, queer-melodic, deep and wicked techno with much for detail. Their
sound surprises with unconventional rhythm-structures and multi-layered sound-design.
Their delicate flair for avant-garde sounds earned them their debut release on Pheek’s label Archipel in 2006. They have since released on
Monocline, Spielmann Musik, Revolver, Emote Music, Maschine, and remixed on the likes of Googoo records, Sintegra, Inminimax, Minitiaura,
Autist, Simplex and more..not to mention their releases on Numbolic which has released a spectrum of fresh international talent in the form
of Kane Roth, Display FM, D. Diggler, Pheek, Mandy Jordan, Canary Fontaine, Phillip Wolgast, Sebastian Koch, Suedmilch and Hidenobu Ito
to name a few...
Dualism's uncompromising sound has sent them gigging globally, performing their live PA in Russia (Moscow / Rostov) - Slovakia (Bratislava)
- Germany (Berlin / Stuttgart) - Italy (Milano) - Switzerland (Zurich / Lausanne / Bern / Lucern etc.) and at many other clubs or festivals
and have played with artists like ‘Anja Schneider’ - ‘Exercise One’ - ‘Click Box’ - ‘Steve Lawler’ - ‘Bruno Pronsato’ - ‘Easy Changes’ - ‘Barem’
- ‘Gurtz’ - ‘Treplec’ - ‘Bern’ - ‘Gebrüder Teichmann’ The creative couple have also worked with well established musicians like ‘Franco Cinelli’
- ‘Jacek Sienkiewcz’ - ‘Butane’ - ‘Lineas De Nazca’ - ‘Alejandro Vivanco’ - ‘Cesare vs Disorder’ - ‘Pheek’ - ‘Seph’ - ‘Rudolf’...
So the question remains…
……Do you wanna punk with us..?

DANZSHLAG presents DAEGON live [USA] & MYNUDE
SAT 18TH FEB | 10pm - 6am
DANZSHLAG is back with a very special year planned for 2012: the Mayan year of re-birth, transcendental new beginnings,
and this year DANZSHLAG turns 5 years old!
For our first party of the year we revisit our purist roots: this winter edition of DANZSHLAG will be dark, driving, exquisite and minimal.
To kick off our programme of international guests, provide you with an outer-body experience on the dance-floor, we proudly present
DAEGON (LIVE) from Denver (USA), playing a live exclusive as his first official gig in London and the UK. Daegon has had a string of
releases on a gamut of labels, such as Machine Box, Divided, Frucht, Der Hut, GooGoo, E-minor, Dark and Sonorous, Cirque du
Minimaliste, and EMOTE to name just a few. Hot on the heels of his European tour, which has included gigs at Tresor and Berghain - no less
than sites of techno pilgrimage for any serious aficionado - Daegon's dark and slamming sound invokes the unknown and possesses you with
an irresistible urge to groove.
Next up we have the promising Cypriot duo MYNUDE. This dynamic outfit will get you seriously orbiting with their infectious sounds, building
a cataclysm of deep and twisted tech beats, original thumping grooves and earth shattering low frequencies. With releases on labels such as
Mad Hatter Recordings, Starcake Records, Elektek Recordings, Voodoo Records, Xe:tech:no, Re:Beat Records and Elektrify, they're set
to be around for some time to come.
Predictions suggest some serious shifting on the dance-floor as DANZSHLAG residents SHIBBY SHITEGEIST and BUNNI SPLANCHNIK serve up
a consortium of loony lunar four to the floor pumping quirk, frag beat, and wonky minimal tech beats designed to work your inner and outer cosmos
into an irresistible frenzy!

Shibby Shitegeist reps DANZSHLAG in Denver and Detroit | November 2011
DANZSHLAG co-founder and resident Shibby Shitegeist is set to rep JAMTHECHANNEL and DANZSHLAG next month in America.
On Friday 18th November she’ll be headlining the infamous Beatport Lounge (Beta Nightclub) with a 3 hour twisted techno, dub-techno, and bass set.
This is part of Denver’s eclectic minimal label EMOTE’s showcase night. Shibby will be sharing the bill with ‘techno ambassador’ John Templeton (Oban),
who co-runs EMOTE and is the brainchild behind Denver’s GATF (Great American Techno Festival). The club has been voted no.15 in the world,
and no.1 in the USA by DJ Mag 2011, and has been likened to Berlin’s Watergate with its beautiful LED lighting and Funktion-One sound.
The following Friday (25th Nov) Shibby will be winging over to the ‘homeland of techno’, Detroit, to play alongside nospectacle & Matthew Hawtin. Catch them play to live
visuals at 2739 Edwin, a gallery space in Hamtramck. Wish her some extra rave-expert luck! In the meantime, she’s recorded this set for y’all to download (follow the link).
DANZSHLAG presents DoubtingThomas | SAT 17th SEP | 10pm - 6am
After the roaring success of the last DANZSHLAG at Performance Space in Hackney Wick,the two collectives come together again to put on another mean warehouse party!
aka THE Dutty D.T DANZSHLAG!
We are excited to welcome acclaimed producer and established fixture of the London underground scene,
French born producer DoubtingThomas who has released on the likes of 31337, Igloo Rec, Safari Electronique,
Mean Records and Serialism.
- " His down tempo, minimal house and quirky techno always look for the patterns and structure of the inner sound.
Sequences within the sound, reaction of the mind and body as well as the interaction of images across the music
....these are the ideas behind DoubtingThomas's music"
We also welcome back South African London based producer Nokken fresh off the back of a gig in Hamburg with
Camea and Tim Xavier, with releases on E-Minor, Retro Metro, UNT! and an EP on WunderKammer in the pipeline...
French born, London based Aurelien aka DoubtingThomas first started his musical journey in 1998 after a childhood
obsession with drums and their rythmatic allure. Producing down tempo and electronic sounds led to a rapid progression
into live recordings and soundscaping which lured him away from France and into London in 2000. Here he studied
Sound Engineering at the acclaimed SAE and continued his ever growing passion for freedom of expression.
London and its underground electronic music scene rapidly became Aurelien’s main focus and he began composing
for independent films and collaborating on projects with London's up and coming underground artists whilst defining his
concept as DoubtingThomas and his sound on the scene. Regular nights at TBar, The End, Unit 7 and numerous renowned
venues led to meeting and working alongside Doudou Malicious's 'Multivitamins Records', Buenos Aire's Dilo's infamous
'Igloo Records' as well as Cesare vs Disorder's brainchild 'Serialism' and San Francisco based 'Two Circles' . DoubtingThomas’
upcoming releases on 31337 and Release Sustain later this year look set to project his unique sound further into his creative
element, alongside the numerous releases we have seen and heard from DoubtingThomas to date.
Hailing from South Africa, Nokken began DJing at the tender age of 12. He played at many warehouse parties and club nights in
South Africa and moved to London to pursue music. Nokken has played at Turnmills, 1001, Gramaphone, The Rhythm Factory,
Public Life, 512, The Russian Bar, Departure Lounge, The Jamm, The Light Bar, to name afew and alongside DJs such as Pure Science,
Sweet n Candy, Saytek, Massimo Licari, Alex Capelli, Lump, Ladida and Tadeo. Nokken began producing and managed a record label
Minimal Force for a few years but left the company in search of a more creative environment to focus on his production. This year
Nokken has released on E-minor Binary and his first E.P is out now on Metroline/Retroline. The second E.P on Unt Records is out now.
In 2010 he formed incube8 with fellow DJ and promoter Bunni Splanchnik (Danzshlag), which has been hosting regular nights such as
Man V Machine, Machine Love and Salon of Nonesuch with many more to follow later in the year.

FILASTINE [Jarring Effects, Soot, Shockout, ROMZ, Uber Lingua, Post World Industries]
Grey Filastine is an audio-visual artist born in Los Angeles, based in Barcelona, and often nomadic.
He composes a dense transnational bass music that collides the lowest frequencies of dubstep with the highest-level
beat science, acoustic strings, voices, and lofi street noises. The results are “awesome and delicate…
hybrids so fluent they defy classification.” - Pitchfork
Performing up to a hundred concerts per year, Filastine triggers live riddims and synchronized video from a heap of
electronics wired to an amplified shopping cart. You may have seen him at a sweaty Tokyo nightclub, a football stadium in
Casablanca, a respected euro-fest like Sónar, in a parking lot in Borneo, during a Christiana riot, or touring the US with Bassnectar.
Before making electronic music Filastine played with the Infernal Noise Brigade, a marching band he founded for the Battle of Seattle.
He continues to use audio as a tool of intervention with the Sound Swarm, an orchestra of bike-mounted megaphones conducted by
pirate radios transmitters. Do not miss this rare opportunity to see him play in the UK.
Check out this video of his live audio-visual show
