Karl P. Meier is from Chicago, a a techno artist who looks to the future while being influenced by the music of the past, exploring the grey area between the physical and the cerebral and focusing on dynamism, subversion, and recontextualization. His current current project is a collaboration with Jonathan “Stave” Krohn under the name Talker, appearing on the esteemed Downwards imprint. Krohn’s highest solo profile release to date is the After The Social EP for Shapednoise’s Repitch Recordings. Together they join a roster of the Downwards label’s artists, defining a sound of assaults that unleash a torrent of minimal and repetitive grooves perfectly reflecting their harsh and bleak industrial location in the midlands. In addition Talker also has releases and remixes that have appeared on labels such as Eye Teeth, Horizontal Ground, and Kathexis. Positive Centre is the dark ambient project of Berlin-based Artist, Mike Jefford, last appearing at August 2016’s Atonal Festival. Using a collection of analog synthesizers, effects processors and tape machines, Positive Centre is an exploration into the possibilities of depth, width and texture reproduction through loud speakers. Being influenced by the infamous French pioneers Groupe de Recherches Musicales, Positive Centre takes the exploration of sound reproduction and audio collage into rhythmic and hypnotic spirals of reverberated walls of sound, with an emphasis on subtle changes in repetition and low frequency sound. This cutting edge basement program is branded with the appearance of OAKE, the emerging Berlin duo Eric Goldstein and Bathseba Zippora, another Downwards outfit who together alchemize their own variant of dark, atmospheric techno inspired by British post-Industrial acts and the occult. DE vs. Troit is a B2B project founded in 2014 in Berlin. These two guys were born in Italy, they started the beginning of their adventure in the capital of Germany, producing their first tracks, with their own musical concept, true Detroit-Berlin Techno, releasing EPs on various labels Lost Demo, Dunsciat, Vizion Division and Serial Number 849 Records. On the Globus Floor: Boris Bunnik is Conforce, a restless producer from Terschelling, Holland, who is forever keen to search out new techniques, tools and sounds for the various musical projects in which he is involved. One of these is Versalife, his moniker for advanced and futuristic electro. Under his many aliases he continually flirting with a range of genres like dub, techno and house on numerous EP’s and LP’s, Conforce also operates in sonic territory that has no easily identifiable name on labels like Rush Hour, Clone, Frustrated Funk or Delsin (where he released his June 2015 deep & dubby “Presentism” full-length), and his own experimental electronic label Transcendent. UK artist Ben Thomas is BNJMN, a relatively new Sweat Lodge family member who has taken his creative sets to some of the top clubs internationally, released on labels such as Delsin Brack, Rush Hour and more, and we welcome him in our home tonight. Dave Huismans is A Made Up Sound, an artist from the Netherlands , whose 2016 compilation made it to the #1 spot in Resident Advisor’s year poll, and who is also slated to appear at Austria’s Elevate Festival in March 2017
