New Codes presented by Berlin Atonal
Fri 17 March 2017 - 23:59

New Codes returns under the Berlin Atonal umbrella, presenting a line-up of diverse electronic artists from avant-garde to experimental and beyond. In Globus: founded in 2012, Central Processing Unit has been more than the buzz all over the international electro scene, probably one of the most innovative to come out of Sheffield since the Cabaret Voltaire/Richard H. Kirk days. Michael Golding & Steve Rutter formed B12, today the latter is the present B12 incarnation. With six EPs released in 2016, cutting edge would be understating the talent expressed in his live act. Mikron are two Australian brothers, Michael & Ciaran Corcoran, living in Ireland. They produce tracks that are almost cinematic in scope, a heady techno indeed. Microlith, a Maltese electro/techno producer named Rhys Celeste very recently suddenly passed away, shortly after the announcement that he would play at tonight’s event. With this in mind, there will be a very special tribute to his talent included in tonight’s program. Chris Smith aka CPSmith is label boss at Central Processing Unit, resident DJ and co-founder at Computer Club, an experimental electronic music record label and club night in Sheffield UK. In Tresor: whether busy giving away vintage modular samples last December, streaming his Atonal Records release “Lines Describing A Circle” or providing outstanding podcasts, the Swedish experimentalist Peder Mannerfelt provides contrastive and extraordinary tones in the basement tonight. Simo Cell is a French rising talent from originary from Nantes. Now Paris-based, this producer differentiates himself by his singular style that melt UK codes to a wider electronic music background. Bulgarian-born Errorbeauty is an electro/electronica producer whose aggressive, tense yet melodically refined music has found it’s way out via labels like Crobot Muzik,Combat recordings, Zvuked, Mirizma, Darkness Falls, BassWarriors, Vision of Art and most recently the excellent Electro Compendium Compilation. A professional flute musician by way of background, she became gradually drawn towards the synthetic, broken, intricately textured sounds that only electronic music could provide.  Wax Treatment’s Tatjana provides some magic to round out this Tresor Floor program. In OHM: Optimo is DJ duo Twitch and Jonnie Wilkes, whose legendary Optimo night in Glasgow (and around the world) mixes up techno, electro, rock and other assorted records out of leftfield. Depending on the duo’s mood, the sound will veer from sleazy funk to post punk, electro, 50’s swing and anything inbetween. Brian Shimkovitz aka Awesome Tapes From Africa was on a Fulbright scholarship in Ghana when he got hooked on the cassette culture of the region. Street vendors hawked West African recordings in myriad genres, from highlife to African disco, old left-field soul to curious local pop. Much of his style is largely unheard outside of West Africa. Behold this ultimate experience in innovation. New Codes by Atonal provides.
