Beau Wanzer (Live), Antepop, Usunov

  • On Friday 7 June, Beau Wanzer lands in Berlin, as part of his tour, to play an ultra-freaky live set at Zur Klappe joined by Inverted Audio founder Antepop and Leipzig-based selector Usunov. Having forged a solid reputation as a bold, innovative experimentalist and mischievous knob-twiddler in the club-associated scene – with releases on L.I.E.S., Rush Hour, Jealous God, Dark Entries and more – Chicago’s Beau Wanzer makes for a special case in today’s electronic music game. Molecular biologist by trade, the American producer tinkers with his analogue gear like a mad scientist; slicing, dicing, drilling down and through the superficial dermis of raw machinic spurts and variedly sourced samples to extract a sizzling juice of fractured synthlines, frantic scope distortions and off-kilter rhythms that goes unparalleled these days.
