Zum Chinesischen Neujahrsfest des Jahres der Ziege kommt DJ Zhao aus Berlin zu Besuch. Geboren in Beijing, heute zuhause in Berlin spielt er eine eklektrische Mischung aus polyrhythmischen Leckerbissen von jedem Kontinent. Time Tarracho sind die Schweizer Leader im frei interpretierten Zouk-Bass.
From Luanda to New Jersey, from Johannesburg to London, from Kingston to Berlin: indigenous drums and high tech sound fuse in the club. Ancestral beats and diasporic voices thrive on inner city streets. Meta-rhythms and mega-bass erasing borders, connecting dots, and making your booty work overtime.

Industrial nightmares and Shamanic visions collide in the club. Ancestral voices bleed through grids of the city. Diasporic sounds and mutant rhythms transformed by migrant movement, shaped by history. Fragmented Psychotropic Bass pulsating through the deepest valleys and highest crests of your mind, in the kaleidoscopic center of the omni-verse. RSVP on fb
Saturday afternoon i will give a small talk and play a set around 18h at this protest festival to change the racist name of this street.
some girl met tonight was rolling her eyes and was like “it’s just a name ffs” and i had to dish out the “WE don’t get to decide what is hurtful, the victims of oppression do” line of reasoning… not sure if it got through at all…
From 4 corners of the world come 4 mutants that have evolved in different ways but on the same path of poly-rhythmic bass, meeting on this night in Berlin to examine various MUTANT sonics, and create oceans deep, tornados strong vibes without borders that will rearrange the DNA of human kind for ever.
