Press Info:
“Transmutations” has been in process since 2 years now. Since 2020, writtings on the concept comes as a way to connect and dive in with what our DNA could reveal to our higher evolution. Slowly, at work to bigger events and dancing raves, I wanted to transmit how strong and perpetually adaptative we get with trust in the whole. Set as to grow symbolically, and built to sober up from violence with trance, acid and techno and raving together in new forms of beauty and ugly transmuted for our versatile dancing scenes. Solidly, Munsinger, resident of @shaktistream operate a next level of core effect, on their remix of “Sobriety” with a lustful taste of tension. PBRM chose the alchemical procession of Dance Divine void invasion for an acid ride.

Rave Hospital EP
For this EP „Rave Hospital“, we invited Noémie as part of Berlin feminist and queer music scene. Noémie is an active member of the female:pressure network and part of sisu crew. „Rave Hospital“ have a massive use of the FUTURE RETRO REVOLUTION synth, an 303 emulation from 2004. The vibe of the EP is settled in the range from fast acid techno to hard trance.

The EP tells the story of a patient getting into the Rave Hospital, fighting for being part of society and in the same time celebrating queer counterculture. It’s a fight for diversity. The doctors (Dr. Beat and Dr. Hofmann) are taking care of the patient. The patient is going through different steps, between surgeries and recovery time. The future of the patient is unwritten …

As usual all the profit is donated to queer causes!

Dr. Beat
„Dr. Beat“ is the intro track, setting up the mood of the EP, fast and trancy with retro vibe. Hypnotic baseline recorded on the FRR synth.

Morphine Dream

Dr. Hofmann
„Dr. Hofmann“ is a hymn to acid techno and Dr. Albert Hofmann the inventor of LSD. Intense and fast path track with a strong acid line, recorded on the FRR Synth.

Recovery
„Recovery“ is the closing track of this Rave Hospital EP. Freshening up the mood with a drum and bass style track. the heavy bass line was recorded with the FRR synth.

Dogged Boldness
We proudly announce the release of our first vinyl record “dogged boldness”. This is a long held dream by the entire crew. With Femanyst, Hybral, Marsch and Fluid we are happy to showcase four artists that are close and dear to DURCH BLN/ TLV. The record is a compilation of four hard-hitting, inciting techno tracks. Rough, bold and aggravating, just the way we like it. We are proud that we are able to continuously work with queer artists and to be a platform to further queer artists visibility.

Disclaimer:
The world needs more queer artist, more queer music, more queer techno, more queer perspectives, more queer love and more queer intimacy. No place for any racist, sexist, trans- or homophobic shit.

Femanyst – “Kraft Durch Schmerz”
Since her debut onto the techno scene with the 2018 release of her EP ‘Post-Traumatic Rave Syndrome’ on Paula Temple’s “Noise Manifesto” and a string of international festival and club appearances, Femanyst has gained a reputation for militant individuality. Akua Grant sets herself apart from the crowd with her aggressive & unrelenting industrial techno sets tinged with elements of Hardcore and Gabber. She has become known for her rebellious and innovative style in her adopted home of Berlin. Her selfassured approach to gripping and brawling techno tension sees her perform a fast paced and fervent flow on the dance floor. Femanyst continues to bring her unapologetically bold signature sound with her own techno imprint “Dark Carousel” as an extension to her much revered DJ sets of twisted and aggressive, high octane electronic music.

Fluid – “Post Industrial Transformation”
Fluid is a queer DJ and producer based in Berlin. Supporting FLINTA* DJs, producers and party events are one of his priorities. His first release begun in January 2021 and he is still modelling his sound. His interest in electronic music goes from industrial techno to ebm to trance to hypnotic techno. Post Industrial Transformation is a track which combines aggressive sounds and a lot of industrial elements. The transformation refers to Fluid’s evolving own path. This evolution is similar to the tension that builds up all through the track. This track evokes change, modification, passage from one form to another.

Hybral – “Unheard Voices”
Hybral is a Berlin-based non-binary DJ and producer drawn to eerie energetic industrial techno. They mix and produce haunting techno, EBM, and noisy-driven experimental sounds. Hybral’s productions are made of dark atmospheric patterns linked with pushing percussions and basslines as well as heavily distorted kicks and harsh industrial noises. Mixing DJ sets the track selection is ranging from contemplative ambient to stern and fast techno – connecting vast influences from Hybral’s personal experiences of spending days and nights on Berlin’s dancefloors. They are founder of the queer label, podcast, and event series ‘Subverted’ which focuses on a distinct program aiming to lead dance music back to its roots of resistance and diversity.

Marsch – “Mrs. Jones”
Marsch is a Berlin-based Dj and producer from France, who initially began 8 years ago as a music curator and selector. She started to produce when she moved to Berlin, and has mostly been focusing on this for the past few years. She would define her music as a balance between melody, energy and texture, with a blend of minimalistic elements, rhythmic and percussions, and voices and futuristic synths.

Gossip
DURCHs upcoming LP showcases emerging talents of the international underground techno scene. The LP features 14 tracks on the harder side of the electronic music spectrum, exploring a fast, forward-thinking take on industrial and hard trance inspired techno. United by the over boarding desire for genuine human contact, all the tracks have a necessitating and almost raging quality to them.

Gossip – the echoing of a queer overturn.

GIA – “Smeared Dreamsz”
GIA is a dreamer. She dreams of living a different life, not as a human but as something else. She longs for a new world, wishes she would wake up one day and everything would be different. A fantasy universe. Throughout the chaos of the past year and a half, she feels as though her dreams have been smeared, her desires have been dampened. These frustrating emotions are what inspired her to create this track. Rough, spectral, almost celestial. Close your eyes, sprout your wings, and fly away, darling, fly away…

Ayako Mori – “Charlie We Move Time”
Ayako Mori is a Japanese DJ and producer based in Aachen, Germany. Apart from being a GEGEN Berlin resident DJ, she is the owner of the labels PTR, Kalmary Rec and Unbekannt/Label. She is also active as an artist with the collective WE ARE RAVE (FR). „Charlie We Move Time“ Voice sampled from classic rave track Charlie, with rumble kicks, lead & pads.

Floor Force One – “Hainweh”
Floor Force One (ff1) is a young producer rooted in the world’s capital of techno. Starting from a young age he has made his way through many different genres and influences. His DJ sets are uncompromising and relentlessly energetic. FF1 is trying to establish his vision of a multi-faceted and crisp sound by producing tracks that reflect a wide range of feelings and emotions. „Hainweh“ is a bouncy techno anthem. A heavy kick over some crispy acid lines. The track is a love letter to clubs, never-ending nights and all the memories and emotions which have been painfully missing during the corona pandemic. „Hainweh“ is a hard hitting, 90is inspired banger about interpersonal and seemingly endless freedom, with lovely alien vocals and just the right amount of humor.

Lucas Campagna- “Watcha Gonna Do”
Lucas Campagna was born in Naples in 2001. From a young age, he has a passion for electronic music, in particular for House and Dance Music. Despite little experience, he’s shown great technical virtue, producing and djing with both digital and analog machinery. Lucas is a very promising artist and definitely one to watch. „Watcha Gonna Do“ is a hard trance inspired banger that grooves over sexy vocals.

Karl Schwarz- “Unknown Secrets”
Karl Schwarz has been gaining recognition as a producer and DJ in the Berlin underground over the last three year. Born and raised in Berlin, Schwarz makes techno that is rough and hard. He focuses on distorted sounds and dramatic melodies. „Unknown Secrets“ is a hard, industrial techno track, carried on the one hand by a hard distorted kick and on the other by beautifully trance infused leads and a powerful bitter-sweet melody.

MERVH- “NYKS”
MERVH is a Techno DJ and producer from Turkey and currently based in Warsaw, Poland. In 2018 she became resident in ‘Luzztro’, one of Warsaws underground clubs. Since then she has been invited to gigs in and around Poland and the Ukraine.

In March 2021 she released her debut EP “SELEM” on polish label Behind the Stage. „NYKS“ combines atmospheric sounds with a powerful drum and kick. After a long intro, the track kicks off with unexpected drum. The name of the track can be translated to night.

Substencia- “Esto Memor”
Substencia is a techno Dj and producer living in Paris. She is heavily influenced by Industrial Techno. Working with heavy basslines, psychotic distorsions and a pitch black atmosphere. “Esto Memor” a tribute to Baudelaire’s poem “L’horloge” (The Clock). It means “remember” in latin, the poem is meant to be universal, with the personal pronoun “we” in verse two which shows a common experience: “we” designates all people, but also individual experience: „remember”. The use of the imperative “remember” shows that it is not a choice, but an obligation : one can not escape time.

P RISCO- “Dirty Sucking Lips”
P RISCO is a South London based artist, DJ and producer. He’s appeared at Jaded’s after hours raves, Орфей, Fold’s unstream session in London and other venues across Europe. P RISCO’s dangerously fast style has proliferated online with mixes for Voight Kampff, Pure Hate, Falsive Records, Somnus. In August 2020 P RISCO launched his own label Chronicles Records to provide a truly sensational visual and sound sensory experience.Currently taking up a monthly residency at AAJA Deptford Radio in South East London. „Dirty Sucking Lips“ is a hypnotic acid trip of drones, heavy machines and distorted sounds.

Upon her graduation she relocated to Berlin and began DJing in venues across Berlin and Germany including about:blank, Grießmühle and Arena Club.

More recently she and her collective have formed Cadillac Escalate. She has released on Alan Fitzpatrick’s „We are the Brave“. Better than Sugar“ is not sweet but opens ur eyes for a new world full of dark and bright cornes to explore something unexpected.

OZUM – “Cerebral Discord”
OZUM is a turkish-born DJ and producer based in Nijmegen, Netherlands. Her selections and productions vary around techno and electro, although she aims to keep experimenting with different genres and challenge all imaginable combinations. „Cerebral Discord“ is mainly inspired by dark ambient tones, creating the impression of being an everlasting cave where different energies flow.

Lady Maru- “Virtual Acidizer”
Lady Maru started producing music in 1994 with an electric guitar, some toy percussions and a Tascam 4 track recorder. She became quickly active as a noise guitarist and casio player for post punk and no wave bands. She started djing in 2003 at Metaverso, a small roman “cult” club and at other underground raves and parties, always trying to combine her post punk influences with techno. Her sound as a producer is mostly inspired by acid techno with industrial and ebm influences. She owns the label acid boiler coalition and works for artistic projects ranging from theater to dance performances and live bands. She has released music on GEGEN, Hydraulix, Obscuur Records, Fallen Angel Techno and many many more. „Virtual Acidizer“ is a dirty acid track over 150 bpm where Maru’s cyclone bass bot meets some dirty synths and noise samples.

ottoman.grüw – “Cometa // Crash”
ottoman.grüw is a multi-faceted live-performer and producer. Floating at the crossroad of punk, techno, ebm, electronica and rave, the sound of ottoman.grüw contains a disorienting vitality, blurring the lines between underground dance and experimental.

On stage, ottoman.grüw creates an immersive experience using hardware drum machines, mystical voice samples and synthesizers. They has released material on various record labels around Europe and North America, oscillating between harsh and more polished electronic sounds. His releases have been supported by the likes of Thomas P.Heckmann, D.Carbone, Hadone and many more. Ottoman.grüw’s also initiated the Montreal Dances Against Borders, a compilation against borders and state and policy brutality and aims to raise funds for the human rights organization “Solidarity Across Borders”.

„Cometa // Crash“ – Most comets are small Solar System bodies with elongated elliptical orbits that take them close to the Sun for a part of their orbit and then out into the further reaches of the Solar System for the remainder. Comets usually have a wide range of orbital periods, ranging from several years to potentially several millions of years. The speed at which the comets entered the atmosphere, combined with the magnitude of energy created after initial contact, allowed smaller molecules to condense into the larger macro-molecules that served as the foundation for life. Many comets collided with Earth in its early stages, and fear of comets is often considered as signs of impending doom.

Bløødshed – “Anxiety Type”
BLØØDSHED is a talented DJ and sound producer from Ukraine, working in such genres as industrial techno, hardcore, schrantz, rhythmic noise. She loves heavy sounds, as heavy as her soul. She believes that there is “technotherapy”, as she has been doing it for more than one year. Since childhood, she studied various genres, even those that few people have heard of. Unusual, cold – this is BLØØDSHED. Expect some heavy stompers and broken dance floors.

Vendex – “Malebolge”
Vendex has found his way, the path of Techno, with a philosophy that envelops him in a cloak of darkness. Influenced by the literature of Dante Alighieri in his work the Divine Comedy, as well as everything related to history, Vendex comes with the intention of creating a path to an inner journey wrapped in dark melodies, blunt and sharp bass that defy the natural , reaching supernatural sounds that touch or even reach what would be the sound of the underworld. Generating sounds that guide the Dantesque idea of a trip in the underworld with the aim of reaching paradise. All this through a forceful and enveloping sound, this creating a path to the nine levels of hell, purgatory and finally reaching paradise.

In Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy, Malebolge (/mæl ˈboʊldʒ/) is the eighth circle of Hell. Roughly translated from Italian, Malebolge means “evil ditches”. Malebolge is a large, funnel-shaped cavern, itself divided into ten concentric circular trenches or ditches. Each trench is called a bolgia (Italian for “pouch” or “ditch”). Long causeway bridges run from the outer circumference of Malebolge to its center, pictured as spokes on a wheel. At the center of Malebolge is the ninth and final circle of hell.
