The collective minds of three of Berlins' finest join forces for a new night of power and bass, heat and audio rage. PURGE was conceived when Daniel Dodecahedron, Brandon Rosenbluth and Tom Ass worked together during the Drop Dead Festival in September of 2011. The ritual of DJing together was the synthesis of a shared longing: fog, heavy vibes, aural evil. Collaboration was inevitable. Combining the best of early industrial dance, post-hardcore influenced dubstep, black metal rave, and witched-out hip-hop, PURGE seeks to encourage spasms, violent dancing and the end of party apathy; when you enter our space, you are part of the cabal. Existence is Void: there is only the gift of fury.
::: PURGE drops down on Thursday November 10th at Chez Jacki with two singular prophets of doom :::
HTRK (Ghostly Internation - AU) use syrupy, trance-inducing beats and ice-cold electronics to slow the pulse to the point of death. Jonnine Standish's vocals sweep across the floor in sultry waves of sable sound, forming a vortex that leaves the mind and body trapped in the most beautiful of torture gardens.
BRUISES (DE) Somewhere between an acid-addled PJ Harvey and Jarboe at her strangest, BRUISES are a young Berlin-based duo formed of members from the universe-destroying Reliq. It's the binge beforehand; gorge yourself on melodies that both entrance and puncture.
Be told: while there is still darkness, there will be sound to make you sweat. The PURGE DJ Trio of xorzyzt (BL4CK M4G1CK), Tom Ass (Gegen Berlin) and BlackBlackGold (Gucci Goth) will be playing sounds to wreak havoc on the body. Joined by apocalyptic prophet Easton West (Son of Cataclysm), they'll be unleashing classics like Thrill Kill Kult and NIN, the doom-laden shrieks of Bone Awl and Gnaw Their Tongues, the full-frontal bass aggression of Deathface and Shizuo, and the drugged-out madness of SALEM and Death Grips.
These men want one thing: to see you lost in the music, the power, the ritual.
Release yourself. PURGE
