EU Booking Support: Tara Transitory

Booking support for EU dates in Sept / Oct 2017. Please contact jan@disk-agency.de.

Tara Transitory aka One Man Nation embraces performance as an explicit expression against the prefabrication of culture. Live, she creates a simultaneously body-oriented and, by virtue of an obliteration of gender boundaries, body-transcending aural experience. Her music employs field recordings and sounds from a midi controller and 64-button monomer. She often places self-built piezo contact microphones on the furniture in the performance space as well as on the instruments themselves, so that the system picks up sounds including fader and knob movements, button-pressing, and physical motion from both Tara and the audience.

DISK Welcomes Infinite Machine

Founded in 2011 by former hardcore purveyor Charlie Juárez (aka Wolf), Mexico/Montreal collective Infinite Machine has steadily established itself as a force in the industry. It made both Mixmag’s and XLR8R’s top labels of 2016, and was profiled by Resident Advisor as February 2017’s Label of the Month. Now booking showcases upon request.

EU Booking Support: Violence

VIOLENCE is an LA-based multi-instrumentalist producing angry, restless sounds combining the polarised realms of pop and noise. Back in 2012 the Californian appeared on Blasting Voice, a compilation executive-produced by TOTAL FREEDOM. Last year VIOLENCE released his debut album, Ruse of Power, on pan-African label NON Worldwide and toured Europe with like-minded souls Mykki Blanco and Yves Tumor. In the beginning of June, VIOLENCE will embark on a solo European tour to promote his forthcoming LP set for release on New York’s PTP in autumn 2017. The artists’ live show is a thunderous spectacle with live guitar, vocals and CDJs.

DISK is providing booking support for Violence EU dates in June/July 2017. Please contact mateusz@disk-agency.de.

Following the premiere at Chronus Art Center (Shanghai) Chris Salter's newest multisensory installation, "Haptic Field", travels to Wiener Festwoche (June) and Martin Gropius Bau Berlin (July).

Toxe Morning Story EP on Vinyl Factory

Working with Niclas Hille, the world Toxe creates with her Morning Story EP treads a line between the familiar and the surreal, where uncanny apparitions weave magical narratives. It's now available via Vinyl Factory and is accompanied by a music video published on YouTube.
