The punk is glossy like fragile glassy nail polish remover. One evening, two musicians, a lot of pressure. At first Cherry Sunkist with her tricky and queer electronic beats, manifold fragmented, decomposed with the finest guitar noise and a voice which sounds like from another universe. Afterwards Yasmin Gate, former member of the Spanish duo “Dirty Princess” which caused a furor in the mid 2000s with their provoking sexualized performances and musicvideos, now eletroclash queen with a rough mixture of clubbyist beats and a Fuck-You-attitude. She is back with a stunning new album called “Dollhouse” which she will present live on stage. The nine-track output, produced by her fellow partners Dualesque, was recorded in Berlin and shows her pop side in electronic music combined with inky washes of Trap and Hip Hop blips. Her new Single and Video “Push” was out the May 22 2015 through Killerrr Records, followed by the album “Dollhouse” the 29 May 2015.
“Selbstdarstellung und Inszenierung machen Cherry Sunkist zu einem der interessantesten musikalischen Acts Österreichs, der noch dazu mit unverwechselbarem Sound daherkommt – im DIY-Verfahren produziert, erarbeitet im Heimstudio mit Hang zum Zufallsexperiment, besitzen die Songs starken Wiedererkennungswert.” (The Gap 2011)
“Yasmin Gate is a performance artist, dj and vocalist hailing from Buenos Aires, Argentina, now based in Berlin. She first became well known with her Dirty Princess project that was part of the International Deejay Gigolo Records roster […] In 2011 she released her debut album ‘YG The Album’ on Space Factory, featuring artists such as DJ Hell, T.Raumschmiere, Douglas McCarthy (Nitzer Ebb). […] straight forward electro-techno-pop track, that gets stuck in your head.” (Local Suicide 2014)
