Andreas Maan is a DJ, producer and musician whose work ranges from techno to ambient and post-punk. With friends, he runs Patterns of Perception, a mix series and deep techno club night. As a DJ, his sound is ambient, deep, dark, driving. Berlin-born Ika Duchna is definitely a force to watch and when she is playing it is all about pure ecstasy. She loves dancing and you can hear that in her music. She is telling a story about techno and house and takes you on a trip through acid, classics, deep house and forceful techno beats. All the different influences make Ika Duchna’s sets an exhilarating experience for your body and soul. Ika works at the well known Hard Wax record shop in Berlin Kreuzberg. Both of these talented new faces are hosted by Tresor resident and female:pressure artist Kaltès, a musician, DJ and curator living between Berlin, having been hosting the female:pressure nights in our home for quite some time. She has an extensive background in music and studied jazz and improvisation in Brussels, before giving in Berlin’s darkest shade of techno. Kaltès’ versatility as a DJ and producer has grown over the years to harder-hitting techno, infused with her unique sense. Her skill and depth across all her musical activities prove that “light doesn’t shine without darkness”, as one critic put. Kaltès is equally at ease building romantic, heady soundscapes as well as infamous techno.
