In the darkness there is a space with the potential to restore what once was and bring about something new. All that’s needed is a Black Start.
Finn Johannsen is a Berlin based DJ and writer that works at Hard Wax, the famed Berlin record store, and writes for Resident Advisor, de:Bug, Groove as well as numerous other publications. DJing since the 80s, Finn’s vinyl collection is about as deep as they come and spans everything from rare soul, dub, post-punk to the bleeding edge of house, techno, bass, and dance music genres yet to be defined. This depth allows him to play genre defying sets as well as razor focused, extended sets that see him digging into the depths of a genre to reveal its very nuances.
Alienata, who is making waves in and beyond Berlin, will be playing a set of dark, analog driven techno, electro, and experimental electronix. She has performed at notable festivals such as Fusion, Mutek, and Krake, and is one half of the production duo, Kat Channel, who has released on ://about blank’s in house label.
Residents Benjamin Shreves and Thomas Schreiber complete the lineup.
