Grand Jeté is an electronic music series at OHM Berlin club, located in the industrial complex of Kraftwerk Berlin (in the immediate vicinity of TRESOR club). Started in 2014, this year's Grand Jeté series will again present electronic live acts sharing the stage with several DJs on five Thursdays from July to November 2015. The participating artists come from different musical backgrounds, however all performances at Grand Jeté will have one thing in common: the exploration of rhythm and sound. A thrilling listening and dance event guaranteed.
KASSEM MOSSE (Workshop, Honest Jon's, Laid) – DJ set
"Kassem Mosse produces electronic music and thinks too much. He lives and works in Leipzig, Germany." No more words needed for Kassem Mosse. The house wizard always surprises with stunning releases.
KYOKA (raster-noton) - LIVE
Kyoka works as a musician/composer in Berlin and Tokyo and is known for her chaotic and direct musical approach and a heavy-rough sound, resulting in a broken pop-beat with experimental yet danceable rhythms. A quote by Ryuichi Sakamoto may underline the exceptional talent of Kyoka: "Panic! It sounds like a toy box turned up side down. How can she make such pretty and chaotic sounds!? I love it!"
ULTRAVIOLETT (The Hum) - DJ set
Ultraviolett is attracted to deep atmospheres, bass and dry rhythms - she loves the warm honesty of reduction. 1993-98 bassmusic was her first love. Today styles vary from glitch, detroit beatdown, raw house to bouncy acidish brighton techno and bass music. Ultraviolett's club sets kick ass in an erratically understanding way: rhythm, womby bass and clicks go abstract micro rave galore!
THE VSQ (I'm so blasé, Kalk Pets) - DJ set
aka Hanno Leichtmann is a producer and curator based in Berlin. His sets are mostly electronic, between house, techno and related. Some very obscure records always find their way into his sets.
