Asterisk is proud to bring MELANIA . for her SF Debut!
MELANIA . [aufnahme + wiedergabe] is a Berlin based artist who’s eclectic sets are mostly based on energetic industrial, techno, EBM, rhythmic noise, rave, wave and heavy sounds. She blends harsh textures with spacious melodic elements and sharp percussion to create otherworldly atmospheres. She is a member of Philipp Strobel's infamous [aufnahme + wiedergabe] and has played Berlin's biggest techno clubs Tresor.Berlin (OFFICIAL) and Griessmuehle.
Michael Claus (LIVE) [Silva Electronics] runs local techno imprint Silva Electronics and manages Bay Area station Sutrofm.net. He is coming off an audiovisual performance at MUTEK San Francisco and he has run the club circuit several times over. His productions range from sunny, stoned dub techno to fried electrical bangers. Michael has been known to melt drum machines and synthesizers with his hyperactive live hardware sets. Do not sleep on this one.
Alta Mar [Asterisk] leads the Asterisk crew. He has a penchant for layering brutal industrial sounds on three decks at a breakneck pace. He has shared the booth with 999999999 and other rising techno acts. And he is very excited to set the tone for the night.
Loose Conditions own marr0w and Gadder will be taking over the backroom for an unexpected journey through sound and time. Their unconventional approach to club music is a breath of fresh air. Head back and get loose.
