SONIG is the renowned electronic label of the “Kölner ungeraden Schule”. Founded in 1997, this label not just published e.g. MOUSE ON MARS, but also gathered some of the most unique and compelling representatives of new digital music and who are introducing themselves on this first international label tour.
The Belgian Super Rocker SPL aren’t just going beyond the limits of conventional record productions (current albums: “solo soli iiiii” and “fan club orchestra vol.1&2”), but they also are outshining everything by playing live. Stage madness in several speeds, gobbing out of the amplifier uninhibitedly. SPL are the living proof that electronic music is not just a genre but a machine which is nebulizing particles. And even those will smash SPL.
VERT decided to do it on his own. He is familiar with songs, with unique rhythm and body moves, vert’uous keyboarding and awkward posing. In this vein the English gentleman is breaking with conventions, styles and beats. After his long tour supporting TORTOISE and MOUSE ON MARS through Europe, USA and Japan, VERT presents parts of his highly praised album “nine types of ambiguity”.
F.X.RANDOMIZ is the sovereign, silent progenitor of laptop rock, that musical mass movement which is meanwhile called like this by all glossy magazines. RANDOMIZ doe not care about this at all. Quite the contrary, because he is just bored about this. Great music is what drives him. Even if he isn’t moving much behind his monitor, he is moving a huge mass of sounds, arranging poly rhythmic infernos. For each concert he is conducting a new orchestra with new unheard music. A living legend, this time accompanied by the fantastic free-noise guitarist JOSEPH SUCHY.
DJ FRANK DOMMERT plays rarely heard records around the burning concert stage. With MOUSE ON MARS he took over the managing for the label SONIG, is for more than 10 years essential part of Cologne’s experimental scene around A‑MUSIC and sole owner of the fine traditional Cologne Label ENTENPFUHL (also published suchy’s new opus “entskidoo”).
LITHOPS is Jan St. Werner from MOUSE ON MARS and MICROSTORIA. With some acoustic surprises and more dance records in his case than the closing time allows, he completes the blazing evening of the SONIG label. Perhaps he also plays live, you never know what he is going to do.
Thus, you can look forward to cool updowntempo beats, sool, pfunk and reargroove for moving clubber. SONIG will assemble electronic music live new and show that there is so much more than just beats or click forming glitch.
