OFFBEATCLUB
Wood In Di Fire (Ska, Jazz, Reggae, Rocksteady) und Bonfi (Reggae) & Everything Crash (DJ-Set)
22h Everything Crash DJ-Set (laboratory for Ska, Rock Steady & Early Reggae)

Mit Jamaican Jazz und handfesten Reggae-Grooves bringen  Wood In Di Fire bei ihren Live-Sessions die Dancehall zum Toben. Was  als Jam-Projekt von Musikern aus verschiedenen Berliner Bands begann, hat sich zur festen Formation entwickelt. Doch  der Session-Gedanke ist  immer noch lebendig: Die Bandmitglieder und Gäste bringen die verschiedensten Einflüsse aus Reggae, Jazz, Ska, Latin und Afro-Beat mit und sorgen damit immer wieder für überraschende Kicks. 
Auf zahlreichen Touren durch Deutschland, Österreich, Frankreich, Spanien, Ungarn und der Schweiz begeisterten Wood In Di Fire ihr Publikum mit ihrer außergewöhnlichen, interkontinentalen, musikalischen Fusion auf treibenden Reggae Beats und Jazzy Grooves.
Seit das Projekt im Jahre 2000 startete, spielt Wood In Di Fire traditionell im Berliner „Schokoladen“. Der bis heute monatlich stattfindende Reggae-Jam wurde schnell vom Geheimtipp zum etablierten Termin der Berliner Reggae-Szene.

"BONFI": Das sind Markus an den Drums, Philipp am Bass und Ju am Synth/Keys. Bei uns steht die Musik im Vordergrund und bietet vielen Musiker*innen ein Zuhause. Das wollen wir aus vollem Herzen unterstützen.

ATOMIC LOBSTER  ist eine Band aus der lebendigen Stuttgarter Musikszene, bestehend aus Ella Estrella Tischa (Gitarre/Gesang), Daniel Herrmann (Bass/Gesang) und Armando Bleher (Schlagzeug). Inspiriert von Vorbildern wie PJ Harvey und Radiohead haben sie ihren eigenen Sound entwickelt. Ihre Musik, eine geschickte Fusion aus Grunge mit Nuancen von Soul und Trip-Hop, zollt ihrer Nostalgie für die 90er Jahre Tribut und bringt gleichzeitig neue, unverwechselbare Klänge mit ins Spiel.

CLAWS - das Debütalbum von ATOMIC LOBSTER, ist ab dem 17.05.2024 überall zu hören. Das Album ist das Ergebnis eines dynamischen Schreibprozesses zwischen Stuttgart und Berlin und reflektiert die Spannungen unserer Zeit, ohne dabei in Resignation zu verharren oder zynisch zu werden. Mit seinen verspielten Arrangements und experimentellen Sounds, die eine Atmosphäre von Sensibilität, Wut und Leidenschaft erzeugen, begibt sich das Trio auf die CLAWS TOUR 2024.

Blending art rock, trip-hop, and desert blues, the international, Berlin based ATOMIC FRUIT combines dreamy, psychedelic rock with electronic beats and soundscapes.

Their debut vinyl album Play Dough was released in the fall of 2023 to a sold out crowd at Schokoladen in Berlin and got featured in major editorial playlists as well as airplay on Berlin radio stations.

The attention to sonic nuances and genre-bending character of the songs, along with beautifully structured melodies will definitely appeal to fans of "alt-j" and "Radiohead". However, the band's approach to songwriting itself is unique and escapes easy comparisons. -Loudness Blog

Atomic Fruit formed after a serendipitous meeting at a Suuns show in Berlin. With members from Sweden, France, Pakistan and Italy, their eclectic mix of the electronic soundscapes and mesmerizing rhythms quickly became a popular live act in the independent music scene in Berlin.

“We want to inspire an audience that is interested in innovative music that pushes conventional genre boundaries and song structures and speaks to people of all ages, genders and backgrounds. You can lose yourself in our music, reminisce or listen to on the train while going somewhere you have never been before”

Seth Faergolzia is a prolific North American singer, songwriter, and record producer known for his enigmatic voice which spans five octaves. Seth has recently completed a newest album with his band Multibird called Dragon House on Needlejuice Records. With over 40 albums and tours through more than 20 countries, Faergolzia has gained critical acclaim for his punk-rock gymnastics and Captain Beefheart-esque abrasion. He is the frontman for the avant-freakout band Dufus and the freakish folkrock project Multibird, which ranges from raucous toe-tappers to soft, touching songs. Faergolzia draws inspiration from a wide range of musical traditions but is also a sculptor, painter, tiny house builder, and author. His dreamlike work focuses on positivity, creativity, kind-heartedness, and social/political change..

M:Soundtrack presents:  MAD Kate & TheTIDE  (Queercore trifft Performance-Kunst) +  Spitplay (Alien Goth Pop/ Cuntroaches /Chrome Animals)

Mad Kate | the Tide are a post punk conceptual performance project with the Tide on guitar, loops, electronics and Mad Kate on vocals, poetry, contact mics and performance.

Now joined by Sara Neidorf on drums, Mad Kate | the Tide has just finished an EP This Morning Waking about genderbased violence and is working on an LP sexWORKperformanceART about the relationship between labour, art and the body. Their Discography also includes ALIVE:ness (LP/eBook 2014), Combinatorics (EP/eBook 2013), will be ready – the Teufelsberg session – (LP Freudian Slit Records 2013) and Leather Jacket (Single/remix 2012)

Composed in dialogue with conceptual explorations and texts, Mad Kate | the Tide’s dynamic sonicscapes mix punk, acoustic folk, psychedelic rock and spoken word. They form the backbone for honest, sometimes darkly provocative performance art and movement which provokes and stirs its audiences.

In their multimedia work ALIVE:ness they ask: To what extent are we alive in each other’s lives —physically, emotionally, electronically, living or dead — taking into account our contemporary context of virtual interaction, shape-shifting and polyphysical interpretations of our own identities? What does it mean to be present when the terms of our own existence are relative to how we interact physically and virtually with those most close to us? What does it mean to queer our identity in a global context in order to be more effective activists and global citizens?

 SPITPLAY are a new Berlin post-wave noise duo, Godzilla meets Eurythmics. Their music features: a relentlessly straight 90's drum machine, a distorted mantra-monotone bass, synthwave and noise sprinkles and vocal acrobatics oscillating between dreampop sweetness and Diamanda Galas performance. A flowery neologism for a feuilleton drawer would probably be Alien Goth Pop.

Founding members from the Cuntroaches and Chrome Animals.

As a skilled sonic explorer, DJ Dirty Paw delves into dusty grooves, transitioning effortlessly from mind-bending 70's Psych Rock to Southeast-Asian Pop, Bollywood, Afrobeat, and modern Folktronica.
