Polymorphism #11 & … Get Perlonized

  • If we weren't averse to the ›post-dubstep‹ designation, it could be applied to Untold and 2562. In keeping with the spirit of CTM Festival’s Polymorphism series, these two artists go post-genre; no patterns, no predecessors. Polymorphism #11 presents the venomous, buzzing low-end and skewed, broken beats of Untold and 2562, plus the 303 acid and aboriginal machine dreams of Bintus and Zhao’s polyrhythmic dancefloor anthropology. Untold aka Jack Dunning’s releases over the past five years marked a departure from traditional dubstep and shift towards weird, 130 bpm mutations of bass music laced with techno. The UK-based producer has issued 12”s on his own Hemlock as well as the kindred Hessle Audio and Hotflush labels, plus a series of straighter techno via Clone Basement Series and R&S Records. For his appearance at Berghain, Untold presents his debut full-length »Black Light Spiral«, due out at the end of February, accompanied by a debut live A/V show with Stockholm-based collective Current Current. Untold also plays a DJ set later in the night. Likewise premiering a new live AV show is Dave Huismans aka 2562. The Dutch producer roves through sound samples and field recordings in his outback dubstep, released via Clone, 50Weapons, and his own freestyle techno platform by the same name as his alternate alias, A Made Up Sound. 2562 performs alongside renowned visual artist Heleen Blanken, whose surrealist, atmospheric film works have set the scene at Trouw Amsterdam, Ben Klock's Klockwork nights, and in collaborations with artists such as Jeff Mills. On opening and closing duties are Bintus, the acid and electro revivalism project of Milo Smee, playing live, and DJ Zhao’s re-edits and mash-ups of acoustic and electronic, traditional and hyper-modern sound. Meanwhile, in Panorama Bar, Perlon mounts its monthly residency with Zip, Sammy Dee, and guests. Polymorphism Nummer 11 zeigt heute die zwei Deutschland-Premieren von den neuen Audio/Visual-Shows von Untold und 2562. Von den Dubstep beeinflussten Hirnschrauben seiner Hessle Audio Releases zu dem Konsens-Techno seines „Change In A Dynamic Enviroment“ Triumvirat und dem beeindruckend kaputten Sound seines Ende Februar erschienenden Debütalbums Black Light Spiral – Untold entwickelt sich kontinuierlich weiter. Auch ein Meister der musikalischen Morphologie ist der Amsterdamer Dave Huisman alias 2562 oder A Made Up Sound, sein Sound ist geprägt von innovativer Rhythmusforschung, off-time-Percussion und field recordings. Mit brachialem Humor geht es dann bei Bintus zur Sache: der Betreiber des Power Vacuum Labels hat gerade mit Live & Locked ein herrlich übersteuertes Acid-Album veröffentlicht, das auch alten Mike Paradinas und Rephlex Fans gefallen dürfte. Etwas feinstofflicher, wie nicht anders gewohnt, die heutige Perlon Party: Zip und Sammy Dee haben heute den Franzosen Cabanne eingeladen, der neben einem DJ-Set auch sein altes Projekt Ultrakurt wieder reanimiert.
