■ CANDIE HANK AKA PATRIC CATANI (de)
After a passionate time of ripping his favourite music out of games, he moved on with using the old homecomputers for programming and sequencing his own sounds. Always being fascinated by unusual sounds, melodies and scratching, his way went straight to the early Techno, Breakbeat and Acid Hardcore Music which got played on certain Rave Parties like e.g. Cosmic Orgasm at that time.

Candie Hank
With Candie Hank he could create his own musical isle and even started to play shows secretly in the beginning not telling people that it´s him. Playing the first Concert in Berlin with Daelek and Angie Reed at their regularily self promoted Audio Chocolate nights, people were wondering where Patric went.. This way he could manage to get a new open minded circle of listeners and it turned out to be the ace up his sleeve.

A cinematic, confronting journey through the eras of forgotten futurist lounge and Beat – He´s using the symbols of our darwinist pop society and the typical male stereotype character role model to appreciatively take it apart and dismantle the dictated, risk free attitude of the “New APP Order”. Hanks anarchistic approach taking and modifying statements in a plunderphonic way but giving it the spice and soul of Moog synths, 8Bit Roughness and the surreal twist of a Daniil Charms worshipping sample eating Bassmonster. Of course always in honour of Morricone, Rock Hunter, Hazil Adkins and the Euromasters.

■ KARL MARX STADT (de)
After slowly stepping back from late nineties hardcore with Society Suckers, Christian Gierden's alter ego Karl Marx Stadt spawned a love for analogue techniques, dub and a stronger emphasis on upbeat melodies. Karl Marx Stadt's Live shows are an amusing blend of energetic Rave style mixing and carefully paced dubbing sessions incorporating circuitbending, synthesizers, children's toys and of course, the universe. This evening Karl Marx Stadt will present new compositions from his label Karl Marx Land; somewhere between “cartoon-reggae, breakdance-Romantik and Eastern European synthesizer pop gymnastics-funk”.

■ DION AND THE MAGIC CHORDS
Dion & The Magic Chords make electronic music with drums, casio chords and trippy visuals. They recently released there first record is called curiously enough 'Curiosa'. Curiosa is a true curiosity in pop music. This is no jazz, no wave and no electro, but once it is all together and much more.

■ ROSS PARFITT (UK)
Drums hung, piled and smacked. Gongs bent and heaved. Stetched out beaten rhythm on rusted tubes and snapped strings. He's played with Roman Nose, Blue Yodel, John Clyde-Evans, Names of Things, Jon Collin and others, and pieces by Peter Ablinger, Alvin Lucier, Seth Kim-Cohen and Stephen Chase.
"A musician dedicated to exploring minimal compositional devices to maximal conclusions" (Jon Marshall, Singing Knives)

■ DJ GINGERMOON
This Scottish mermaid swam all the way to The Netherlands, where she grew up in the small coastal town of Zandvoort. Unable to talk she decided to let the music speak for her, spinning records and mp3's with a dark, romantic and sometimes humorous twist.
