James Whipple a.k.a. M.E.S.H. is with fellow American expatriace Lotic a co-founder of Berlin club night Janus. His initial releases combined the jagged beats of U.K. grime and garage with dubby textures and a sense of meticulous sound design common to IDM producers such as Autechre, resulting in a sound and aesthetic occasionally referred to as “post-Internet.” His debut full-length,Piteous Gate, is a bold step forward, leaving behind much of the dance-informed elements of his previous work and creating an unpredictable, sometimes frightening album of dark, theatrical soundscapes.
DJ and producer Kajsa Blom a.k.a. KABLAM was born by the Swedish west coast and moved to Berlin in 2012. She started her career as a DJ, as one of the residents of Berlin’s Janus party alongside co-residents Lotic and M.E.S.H. Janus is now a label and has held parties at Berghain and booked producers and DJs Arca, DJ Hvad, Total Freedom, Nigga Fox and more. As a DJ, she manipulates digital tracks, taking advantage of the advanced possibilities offered by CDJs. She likes to play and mix contrasting genres, finding imaginative points of entry and combinations between them, using the parameters of space rather than time to structure the music. The Fader named her one of ”20 musicians you need to know about in 2016”.
Why Be (DK/DE)
Tobias Lee a.k.a. Why Be is a Korean-born and Berlin and Copenhagen-based producer and DJ who swims in the same stream as Total Freedom and the Janus crew. He views electronic music as a potentially destructive force against the status quo, and does almost nothing conventionally, from his DJing to the way he releases music. Snipestreet is an important milestone in his career: it marks both the first time he's tried his hand at original productions and his first official EP, released by label Halcyon Veil.
TOLE aims to create compositions rather than tracks, force rather than melody, and shifting details rather than clear patterns. The music project of Berlin and Prague-based visual artist Martin Kohout, TOLE combines ideas from his artistic practice and research with his own recordings and production.
The shows of M.E.S.H., KABLAM and TOLE are supported by the 2016 SHAPE platform, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
