Event on Facebook

???? consigns the meaning of collaboration and acceptance between contemporary artists, by the means of various audio-visual, even performative planes that are based on decadence, the power of music, darkness and concrete. The collective is opening a circle to our very own, self-accepted world that, thanks to diverse international influence, is transmitting to our authorial Events.

We are pleased to present our next ???? circle together with ???? ???????

???? ????? [BITE Records]

The collaborative project of two Italo Body Music trailblazers: BITE founder – ????? ??????, and one of the label’s protagonists – ????? ?????. United by a mutual passion for a particular melancholic yet sensual approach, and a sound that combines influences of synthwave, EBM, Italo and techno, the two have proved themselves to be a perfect match with ‘Spritzkrieg’ (2020) – their first EP on BITE.

Both based in Berlin, have been at the top of the industrial techno and ebm circuit through the last several years and have shared the stage on numerous occasions in their respective projects. Their mutual love for music outside of that sphere is what brought them together to form this alliance. Attempting to throw off the dark and authoritative stereotypes of the current music scene they helped foster, Phase Fatale and Pablo Bozzi look to their core influences of synthwave, disco, and early techno to carve a new path as Italo body music pioneers.

This time, Soft Crash present their first long player ‘Your Last Everything’. The album further expands the Italo Body Music palette into electro, acid house, bleep, hi-nrg, and IDM. Each of the eight tracks on the LP sounds layered and intricate, with a variety of interactions between different technical elements and intertwining melodies that reference high production methods from the 80s and 90s turned contemporary. The album centers itself around themes of dystopian cyberpunk and surreal cinematics. It looks to invoke emotion in cold and mechanical elements, making it feel like an organic new chapter in the duo’s ongoing exploration of the relationship between technology and the body. ‘Your Last Everything’ comes together in a sci-fi-like dramatic journey into another universe, juxtaposing internal conflicts of good and evil, creation and destruction, victory and defeat.

??????? [Liber Null Berlin/BITE records]

He is also the founder of Liber Null Berlin, which has played a critical role of unifying the freedom of arts in a conceptual event in the scene and also operates as a record label.

He enjoys both the ecstasy of the night and the morning tenderness. Audiences in most of the domestic clubs have been entertained to the fullest, but Vesnu has performed at festivals such as Grape in Slovakia, Sziget in Hungary, and Rote Dichte in Germany too.
