We're back at The White Hotel on 21st March for an all night event until 8am exploring techno, Industrial, EBM and noise.
Cut Hands is the electronic music project of William Bennett, previously of power electronics act Whitehouse. Cut Hands began in 2008, releasing on both Regis-Karl O'Connor's Downwards Records label and Blackest Ever Black.
Bennett founded Whitehouse in 1980, with a mind to creating 'the most extreme music ever recorded'. They succeeded. They remained at the forefront of the experimental and noise scenes over the next 27 years, creating controversy and stimulating debate with their choice of subject matter, before eventually disbanding in 2007. For Cut Hands, rhythmic percussion is the chosen weapon; utilising this with live disturbing visuals, generating a sound charged with the ferocity of the original Whitehouse project. He offers a ritualistic experimentation with brute percussiveness, physical intensity and darkly designed sound.
March 21st brings the UK live debut of Lapse of Reason. The solo project of one half of EBM outfit Imperial Black Unit - Berlin based Pablo Bozzi. Recently releasing his full debut 'Sorrows' EP on [aufnahme + wiedergabe] (mastered by Thomas P. Heckmann (OFFICIAL), this was preceded by 'Go Away' for Khemia. Lapse of Reason drives you into his universe with a range of different influences, from EBM to Techno, through New Wave, New Beat and Industrial, to define a modern, powerful, mutant body techno sound.
A prolific, classically trained musician, he has also collaborated with Kris Baha & I Hate Models on the Blind Delon 'Rule III' release and is a member and resident of the collective and label Area Z alongside a new monthly residence on Berlin's HÖR Radio.
Velvet May is an italian, Berlin-based artist focusing on Electronic Body Music, Techno, Industrial and post-punk textures. Bringing a live set to his Manchester debut on March 21st.
Behind the Tears On Waves imprint, his debut EP “Vast As Black Night” quickly received support from Ancient Methods, Phase Fatale, Paula Temple, Violet Poison, The Hacker, Philipp Strobel, The Brvtalist, Mannequin’s Alessandro Adriani, NX1, UMWELT amongst others. His 'Unknown Bodies' release also came with outstanding remixes by Years of Denial and Autumns. His latest EP 'Phoebe's White Skin' has recently been released to the same acclaim.
We're thrilled to welcome faux naïf to The White Hotel on 21st March.
Recent gigs have seen her playing clubs such as Tresor.Berlin (OFFICIAL), Gegen - KitKatClub Berlin, fabriclondon, Jaded, KAOS London & UNMASKED alongside artists such as Silent Servant (Official), Ancient Methods, Adam X, Broken English Club, Death In Vegas, I Hate Models, Violet Poison, Years of Denial, Ugandan Methods, VTSS & JK Flesh/ Justin K Broadrick.
Faux naïf has a particular view on club music. Under her moniker she champions Body Music, EBM, Tropical Goth & Synth. Always dark in sound. She supports these sounds through her own parties - M II M (mouthiimouth) where she has hosted artists such as SARIN, parrish smith, Volition Immanent, DVA Damas, Human Performance Lab, The Brvtalist, Velvet May, Zanias, Phase Fatale and the Fleisch Collective as well as her Threads Radio show located at London venue the Cause.
We're really happy to be bringing the Manchester debut of London's Øliver. Born from within the capitals neglected walls and spaces, emerging as a self-titled solo artist in 2016, The Grey Area Agency artist has performed alongside artists such as SHARPLINES, I Hate Models, Imperial Black Unit, Codex Empire, Zanias, Phase Fatale, SNTS, SHXCXCHCXSH and more, exhibiting unwavering industrial techno sounds. Øliver’s interests lie at an intersection between raw Post-Punk, sharp EBM and machine-cut Techno with a DIY aesthetic, and a non-purist approach. A resistance against convention.
Iit's always a pleasure when Kenny Campbell plays for us. The Pitch Dark Records chief has recently released on Industrial Strength Records, Clan Destine Records and returned from gigs in Hungary and France where he played for the Askorn Records crew. This time round on the 21st, he goes head to head with Edinburgh's Duellist for what can only be a very special heavyweight session of industrial, EBM, techno and noise.
