On saturday the 8th of September we where back down under in the Brunnen70 basement. This time with a different lineup, different musical direction and in a bigger room. We prepared well for our showcase at the monthly “Wedding Present” underground festival, bringing 2 DJs, 3 Live-Acts, 2 VJs and a light installation.

The night started with a journey through uk bass, hip hop and house by James A. Shaw as playing under his moniker Borth Sea Defence (stay tuned for more, James OneBeat artist profile is coming up). He played a live dj set with “two turntables, a laptop running Traktor and Ableton, a Korg nanopad triggering hits and samples which are running from Ableton and a Korg Monotron Delay for a few oscillations”. Enough said, listen to the recording of the Borth Sea Defence set below.

After James we had One Dub Connection finally performing again on a OneBeat showcase since Karneval der Kulturen in 2011. A blend of dub and drum’n’bass, followed by the electronica live-act Kyson, who brought plenty of gear and even had a drummer for percussion lined up, but who sadly got ill before the event. Lush, deep, and more upbeat then ever before he pleased us with a brilliant live performance.
Third live-act in a row was Wermonster, beatmaker deluxe who came straight from recording sessions in Wiesbaden. Nico has been a busy man lately. Last but not least, Alex from One Dub Connection performed a banging drum’n’bass set under his alias Trilingo… we must agree that drum’n’bass isn’t something you hear often enough in Berlin these days, that was great for a change. For visuals we invited Robert Heel for a light installation (check out his work at www.robertheel.com) and RTZ23 and E (E-Gruppe Berlin) for vjing (E introduced us to some pretty straightforward projection mapping, thanks again for the help with the setup).

Thanks go out to all the helping hands and of course our artists for playing for OneBeat for free, thus helping us grow our project and network. We hope to see you next time!

arrowRTZ23 – n-time habitat audiovisual album

05.07.12 by Lukas

Some weeks back, OneBeat artist RTZ23 published a 44 minute audiovisual compilation with original music and graphics. The visuals where partly produced for the experimental session we did in December. Great atmosphere, makes you think of lit up Tokyo at night or a machine world. You can grab all the tunes for free on his soundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/rtz23/sets/n-time_habitat.
Get ready for a ride..

Last friday, the 16th of December, our second “Experimental Session” took place in João Cocteau in Neukölln. With the sessions we start our approach to small events based on experimental music and music performance.

This time we invited our newest member Kyson, to perform live (supported by Geordie Little) and RTZ23 to create visuals to his music. The weather was terrible as a low pressure zone was just passing over Berlin, icy rain was pouring down, so first of all we owe everyone that made to our event in these conditions a big thanks. Despite the bad conditions i think Kyson’s downtempo music kind of fitted perfectly into this ambience, personally sometimes i like to define it as “winter music”. For all those who haven’t heard his work yet, have a listen:

Inside it was warm and cosy, and after starting with a slight delay (typical for Berlin i guess) everything worked the way we thought it would.  The idea behind these experimental sessions is to bring artists together in new ways and to present something different every time. RTZ23 and Kyson collaborated for the very first time and they had only been in touch online, trying to put together a show with one visual theme per song. We wanted to create an audiovisual experience outside of the club context, and to create a stronger focus on the artist performance by presenting this in a space which is not a club nor a bar. We think that this worked really well, people sat down, watched and listened and as far as we know really enjoyed the performance. Big thanks go out to Geordie Little for supported Kyson on the guitar, to Kyson and RTZ23 for the hard work they put into it and of course to Joao Cocteau for the great venue. The date for the next session is not final yet, but expect it to be in early 2012. Hope to see you there next time!
