IMPOSITION MAN
Oscillating between Berlin and Graz (AT), IMPOSITION MAN fuel their creativity by self-restraint. Their anachronistic approach: „Let’s refrain from the technological achievements of the past 40 years“ fortunately doesn’t become a gone wrong version of Rousseau’s „Retour à la nature!“. In fact, their sound establishes new perspectives on the interdependence of music, time and politics. According to the traditions of DIY, their album was recorded on an – already long in the tooth – 8 track cassette recorder. And after just two bars of machine drumbeat, it’s clear-cut: what we have here is an obvious case of incitement to mental time travel. Eyelids hardly just closed, we witness disoriented millennials turning into (late) baby boomers. May turns into Thatcher, Trump into Reagan and Austria’s Kurz into… well: Kreisky. Along the fault line „man / machine“, new questions and discourses emerge since the 1980s. While back then the world was just on the cusp of digitalization (the CD was launched in 1982), nowadays – almost 40 years later – it ’s coming to an end / climax. Imposition Man endow us with the pertinent soundtrack, by songs such as "Promise of Salvation" or "To fill a Void".

RISS
Our first occasion to enter riss’s enigmatic zone of human-rupture. Eerie and persuasive, this new Vienna-twosome sprawls into brilliantly-tarnished dark wave. With evocative power, designed to bind!

ROSA NEBEL
Opaque narrative machine music, determined to enmesh and interlock our legs with an insubordinate and throbbing proto-techno/ minimal-wave dance floor.
