演出陣容 line up

ʕ •ᴥ•ʔ Room 1:

Total Freedom (Fade to Mind)

Why Be (Halcyon Veil)


ᶘ ᵒᴥᵒᶅ Room 2:

DJ 墮落天使


Boiler room:

又實驗又大膽,甚至帶有點挑性意味的Total Freedom,總能帶給派對多樣層次與質地,善於利用世界各地不同的club音樂,把看似亂無章法、節奏差異極大的音樂拼貼起來。
Total Freedom打破所謂流行音樂和實驗音樂的區別,他將各種聲音拼貼,R&B和Hip Hop的取樣配上機關槍般顫慄的鼓聲,毀滅性的噪音,性感中又帶有令人不寒而慄的氣息。

身為Fade To Mind廠牌的創始者之一,Total Freedom經常在廠牌活動演出,他聲譽也隨著廠牌水漲船高,音樂界對他的才華紛紛做出肯定,甚至加入Bjork專輯混音的行列。近年來他常為Venus X在紐約的派對GHE20 GOTH1K放歌,也在柏林創新廠牌Janus當客座DJ。他在全球許多的場地舉辦活動並結合裝置藝術,從芝加哥昏暗地下室到柏林的Techno殿堂Berghain、倫敦的Tate Modern到紐約MoMA當代美術館。

Why Be
Boiler room:

一位來自柏林、丹麥出生的韓裔男孩,上一張由Halcyon Veil為他所發的EP “Snipestreet” 讓他嶄露頭角,當時不但有DIS Magazine為他做MV首播,在The FADER上也能看見他完整的訪談,其中單曲Heroin Hat更被FACT Magazine譽為年度最佳舞曲之一。

就如同他叛逆問世的名號一般,他的音樂充滿多元性、破壞性並且擁有份懸疑快感,在他的創作和他的DJ set裡面都能感受到他與身俱來、難以定義的個人風格。他所使用的音樂素材廣泛,即便其中不乏大家熟知的流行歌取樣,然而一切在他手中捻來卻組合成專屬Why Be那躁鬱、發洩且難以妥協的獨行風格。

Why Be
Tobias Lee is a Korean-born, Danish-raised, and Berlin and Copenhagen-based producer and DJ. After intentionally spending years on the fringes of experimental dance music, 2015 saw Lee embracing the conventional release format for the very first time, accordingly establishing himself as a formidable emergent voice in dance music's larger conversation.

The resulting Snipestreet EP on Rabit's Halcyon Veil label notably found the artist exercising a newfound mastery over original productions, in lieu of his usual, unruly approach to bootlegs and edits. Upon release it garnered widespread critical acclaim, with tracks and videos from it being premiered on DIS Magazine, a full-length interview appearing on The FADER, and Heroin Hat making it to FACT Magazine's best club tracks of the year list.

Lee's sound both on record and behind the CD-Rs defies easy compartmentalization: if anything, it is defined by its visceral uncategorizability. He's as likely to draw on ballroom and rap as instrumental grime, but it's Lee's radically singular approach to putting it all together that makes him so exciting. Even if the ingredients are familiar, the end product never is: his hectic, cathartic, and uncompromising style of club music ultimately stands completely in its own lane.

Total Freedom
Adventurous, often confrontational but always playful, a DJ set from LA's Ashland Mines, aka Total Freedom, draws dancers into a whirlwind of ever-evolving texture and sensation. Unafraid to assault listeners with jarring shifts in mood and tempo, in his hands, R&B-concrète collides with rap, grime and ballroom house, while sung vocals abruptly dissolve into swamps of syrupy, drugged-out noise. As akin to real-time sonic collage as typical dance music DJing, Mines' free-associative approach places recognizable hip hop and R&B traits within abrasive, rhythmically distorting sonic space, making the familiar thrillingly unfamiliar. Alongside friends and contemporaries like Nguzunguzu, Kingdom and Arca, he's poised among the vanguard of a vibrant, still evolving new aesthetic in club music.

In recent years he's played in a host of venues across the globe, from sweaty basements in Chicago to the techno-cathedral of Berghain - events in spaces such as London's Tate Modern and New York's MoMA, as well as a few acclaimed boilerroomtv sets and guest mixes on London's Rinse FM and BBC Radio1xtra.
