H_U_T._ is an experimental music and artist collective based in Tilburg (NL). Inspired by the boundary-pushing spirit of the Fluxus movement, H_U_T._ embraces an open approach to artistic and musical freedom. Their work spans from weird-punk, art-rock, and happenings to noise and improvisation. During the META-META-META tour (July 2024), they will be performing new music largely written to be interpreted live in various ways. Think of bands such as Wire, Pharaoh Overlord, and Alice Coltrane.

The neo-krautrock trio UBU IMPERATOR emerged in early 2022 in the deepest basements of Munich's Alpenstraße.

In numerous jam sessions, a constellation of guitar, drums and synthesizers gradually evolved, navigating diverse realms from dreamy to dramatic, between harmonies and noise, embracing rhythm and chaos.

Ubu Imperator's universe is not limited to music and sound only but also manifests itself in illustrations, animations, graphics or texts

The band's name is a reference to the theater piece ”King Ubu” (1896) by the french writer Alfred Jarry.

CLOUDSURFERS’ mutant strand of garage punk, post-grunge and psychedelic rock rolls with the glee of a bunch of death-defying storm chasers. One moment their songs swarm at the heart of the breakneck G-forces, the next they’re ghostriding the expressway to hook-laden alt-pop nirvana.

Cloudsurfers’ second album Subhuman Essence is a daredevil attempt to match the group’s boisterous stage hijinks on record. Furthermore, it captures a band urgently familiarizing themselves with one another. The band’s debut LP Don’t Know What Hit Me largely accommodated singer/guitarist Thom Liesting’s expressive songwriting; this time around, the group had a larger puzzle to solve. For one, there was the challenge of having the group's two heavy-hitting hombres – Nanne Hatzman and Ramses Hooymeijer – playing off each other’s strengths.

Furthermore, the album perfectly encapsulates Cloudsurfers’ rapidly developing chemistry, especially between guitarist Pieter Sloot’s cerebral composing chops and Liesting’s reality-bending chronicles of misadventure. Bassist Jess van der Zee, meanwhile, is the ultimate tether that keeps all the erratic rhythms and melodies from spiraling into a hodgepodge of noise, discharging guttural heavy-melodic slabs with a perpetually awestruck smile on her face.

To mix Subhuman Essence, Cloudsurfers approached producer Michael Badger, who previously worked with Amyl & The Sniffers and SONS, and twiddled the knobs for King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s totemic Nonagon Infinity. The latter album has been one of the defining records that shaped Cloudsurfers’ own formative years, so as far as full circle moments go, that would be an F5 tornado-sized one. As a band at the glorious up rush of their creative powers, Cloudsurfers are off to chase the next storm up ahead, weathering rain and thunder and hitching rides on top. If they happen to crash through a town near you, best get into the pocket.

Coming from different musical backgrounds, RYL discovered that the new wave Garage Music à la FIDALR, Bass Drum Of Death, Ty Segall, The Orwells, etc. is the perfect mixture for everyone in the band. Still with their evergreen idols in their heads - ranging from old Punk like The Shocks, legends like Ramones to stadium Rock like Foo Fighters - this band distills it down to a catchy melody, energy driven guitars, a crispy bass and drums that pound like a freight train.

After finding together in 2015 they self-recorded and —released their first EP No Milk, No Fun in June 2016. Sold on self painted CD’s it doesn’t promise anything it can’t deliver: raw, energetic and still catchy six songs.

In 2018 they released their four track EP Skeletons (tape, Rood Woof Records) in March and another four tracks on the split LP Cape
 
Carnage (vinyl, Rood Woof Records) with the Berlin Garage/Psych Rock Band Father Midnight in July.

Their energy driven live performance got them to support bands like Oh Sees, White Fang and Frankie and the Witchfingers.

M:Soundtrack Special: Talk & Concert w/ Etuk Ubong & Band (Lagos, Nigeria)

Looking forward to introduce Etuk Ubong to the Schokoladen Stage, I have had the honor to work Etuk now for a few shows and have invited him before our next festival gig to discuss his work and philopsophy and of course hear a live set ! In Lagos he is running his own club TRUTH so this is also very interesting to learn about the ecosystem and scene in Lagos opposed to Berlin. Similarities and differences.

Hailed by none other than Seun Kuti as “one of the best things to come out of Lagos”, Nigerian trumpeter, composer and bandleader Etuk Ubong has developed an original style he calls “Earth Music”. Weaving together a unique combination of not only afrobeat, highlife and jazz, but also the ritualistic drumming of Ekombi, the result is urgent and highly energetic, yet spiritual; his compositions reflecting his heritage and life philosophy of goodwill, peace and love for humanity.

--------

Etuk Ubong uniquely combines Afrobeat, Highlife and Jazz with the ritual drumming of the Ekombi. The result is haunting, high-energy, spiritual and driving.

Inspired by jazz greats and the sounds of the elements water, wind and fire, trumpeter and composer Etuk Ubong calls his music “Earth Music”. Born in Lagos in 1992, he joins the tradition of fiery, Afrobeat-rooted, hard-bop influenced trumpeters that goes back to Tunde Williams, who in turn was a founding member of Fela Kuti’s seminal band Africa 70 in the 1960s. In the bands of famous musicians such as Victor Olaiya, Femi Kuti and Buchi, the Lagos-based artist was able to live and develop his passion for music. Etuk Ubong’s style captivates with urgent tempos, powerful horn charts and highly explosive socio-political lyrics. In short: rousing, overwhelming!

Etuk Ubong is also the owner of TRUTH nightclub, currently one of the hottest clubs in the heart of Lagos since the demise of the legendary Fela Kuti’s Shrine.

A beautiful intimate evening with two latinx artists, Berlin- NYC

The Vignettes series is offering space to artists on the margins, women, trans and non binary creatives that are often not given the space to shine or be heard. Inside of my work as a curator and promoter I look always to support artists that I love and I believe that  they deserve opportunities to tell their stories, show their talent and be introduced to each other in a connection which maybe grows fruit..  My wish is to be build communities and leave this as a legacy. Tonight we will feature two Latinx artists who bring with them poetric truths, and emotional journeys of themselves and their ancestors .

Looking forward to this intimate evening!

FEATURING:

iiisa a.k.a Iisabel crespo pardo (they/them) is a NYC-based latinx vocalist, improviser-composer, and interdisciplinary artist. Their work actively entangles music, visual art, text and performance, always evolving to reflect the intra/interpersonal spaces they inhabit. Reveling in soft chaos, they embrace openness and specificity to create poetic work(s).
🍃
For crespo, art is a place to gather, to exercise intuition, rigor and delight. They are deeply invested in building generative structures and intentionally inviting others into focused explorations

-----------

“Isabel Crespo Pardo is an electrifying figure [...] with practices that collide and meld a variety of approaces, whether rooted in tradition or radical, through the lens of improvisation”
— Peter Margasak for The Wire

ágata - will be sharing a selection of pieces from her debut album 'primeros pasos' released in april of this year as well as unpublished poetic soundscapes and songs created with a loop station with a warm invitation to go on a journey inwards. 

starting off with a friend’s guitar in 2020 ágata has found new ways to explore creativity beyond her photographic practice and visual art. 

since allowing her poetry and writing to grow into lyrics and form melodies, producing music has become essential to expressing emotions and has become a form to process life in a new playful creative sphere.

RODNEY BRANIGAN

Rodney Branigan has become known worldwide for his unique ability to play two guitars at once. While quite a spectacle in itself, the meat and potatoes of Rodney's music is his ability to pen emotive lyrics and deliver them with a voice that is honest and passionate. One Seed is the first song of the upcoming album, The Clever Kid Cartel, and is a fair
representation of his passionate, sincere and emotive style.
