Grand Jeté with Objekt, Silva Rymd and Annika Henderson

  • Objekt (Hessle Audio/PAN), DJ set Despite releasing only a small handful of records, Objekt has quickly become one of the most consistently lauded producers of recent years. The Berlin-based artist has garnered an enviable reputation for attention to detail, evocative arrangements and inventive, effervescent sound design, coaxing sonic features from the most unlikely of places.His sets, while broadly focused on techno, frequently duck and dive between the hypnotic and engrossing, incorporating off-kilter broken beats, breakneck electro, acid, noise, house, EBM and anything else necessary to illustrate his version of events, sometimes taking large jumps in tempo and drawing fully from the last 30 years of recorded electronic music. Silva Rymd (:// about blank), DJ set It all started in 2007 with her project ‘electricdress,’ which organized workshops at Spartacus—a venue in Potsdam, Germany—where she immersed herself in the world of electronic beats, organizing parties, and representing a small club collective. This launched an intense musical exchange between Leipzig and Berlin. In 2008 she decided to move to Berlin. Since then she has been working for ://about blank—her "living room" as she calls it—garnering inspiration from labels like Sandwell District or Prologue, and in the dark and echoing Techno-sounds of this period, she started DJing. Currently, she is a resident DJ of ://about blank resident crew and passionately orchestrating the ‚Ghosts*’ and ‚Zeroize’ events in Berlin. Annika Henderson (Stones Throw), DJ set The musician and poet Annika Henderson made a name for herself under the name ANIKA with two highly praised eponymous albums (recorded with Geoff Barrow of Portishead and his band "Beak") which she toured worldwide. She is also a well-known DJ and hosts the programme "Do Not Go Gentle" on Berlin Community Radio. As she puts it: "For djing i normally play a mix of dub, electronic, house, techno, weird. It's more like a trip and performance in itself.“ GRAND JETÉ is a project by Hanno Leichtmann, kindly supported by Musicboard Berlin and Carhartt, presented by Digital in Berlin and Groove-Magazin.
