Since its beginnings in fall 2012 Struma+Iodine is dedicated to present the various facets of contemporary electronic music, of club culture and advanced sound. In live concerts, DJ-sets and podcasts we have featured almost 400 international and local artists. To reflect this diversity, the celebration turns into a mini-festival featuring 15 international and local acts. On two floors, eight live acts meet seven DJs bringing together stubborn Noise, Dark Ambient, digital Avantgarde, trippy Techno, Post-Hyper-Pop, anthemic Trance, apocalyptic Hardcore, droney trombone and electrified viola. The aim of the curation was not only to represent the multi-layered spectrum of adventurous electronic music, but also to invite some of the protagonists of Vienna’s forward thinking electronic music scene on stage.
The line-up features:
㋛ BUTTECHNO live
The Berlin-based musician, DJ, artist and label-head Pavel Milyakov aka Buttechno has been considered one of the leading figures of Moscow’s underground music scene. Opposed to the aggressive imperial politics of his homeland, Pavel uses his work to acknowledge the historical and cultural context, delving into sociopsychological issues that haunt the society, and addressing memory — both collective and individual — and its potential to change our visions of the future. Chameleon-like and unbiased, Milyakov takes up the most diverse genres. He serves Finnish-influenced minimal as well as euphoric trance, relentless hardcore as well as uplifting acid house or broken beats.
㋛ SPEKKI WEBU dj
Dutch DJ, producer and label owner Spekki Webu acts as a mind expander among his colleagues. With a hypnotizing psychedelic mixture of tripped-out trance, extraterrestrial tribal techno, jungle, breaks and ambient, shifting gears between hypnotic slowmotion and breakneck 90’s rave, he catapults us into other dimensions, inducing a cerebral high.
㋛ ELVIN BRANDHI live
Elvin Brandhi is the pseudonym of musician and vocalist Freya Edmondes, originally from Wales. Her music is kaleidoscopic, idiosyncratic and fragmentary, as if made up of thousands of impressions. Her voice is actually at the heart of the tracks, ranging from aggressive to pensive, forming an orchestra of affective vocal noises.
㋛ BATTLE-AX live
Her performances are as much disruptive as they are refined and can easily stand next to the most heavily produced club sounds- Armed with a viola, Beatrix Curran aka Battle-ax, envelops a space with relentless chains of reverb and distortion building up cohesive, strong and highly emotive soundscapes.
㋛ JUNG AN TAGEN live
The musician and artist Stefan Juster has been successfully carrying out psychoacoustic experiments as Jung An Tagen for years. Juster demands aesthetic openness with his sounds. He develops self-sufficient compositional systems and refuses typical musical syntax.
㋛ IN MY TALONS live
The producer, multi-instrumentalist and artist Florian Pfaffenberger aka In My Talons is channeling musical styles from past and present to form irritatingly emotive, hybrid tracks that are successfully overcoming high/low binaries and seemingly opposing aesthetics.
㋛ ALPHA TRACKS dj
Felix Benedikt aka Alpha Tracks is one of Austria’s most successful techno exports. When Trance was rediscovered by the techno underground a few years ago, he was right at the forefront. Since then, he has been considered one of the figureheads of the genre.
㋛ SCHIRIN dj
The DJ, producer and artist Schirin was considered one of the hottest underground DJs in the city before she moved to Berlin a few years ago. Her hardcore techno-oriented mixes feature hardstyle, trance and gabber and are always on the edge.
㋛ KARO PREUSCHL live
The musician, performance artist and lyricist Karo Preuschl is an active figure in the Viennese art and culture scene. She presents abysmal modular synth vocal noise improvisations, testing out the full frequency spectrum.
㋛ GISCHT dj
Ursula Winterauer lives and works as a musician, producer and curator in Vienna. She is co-founder of Ventil Records and active as a musician under the pseudonym Gischt. Similar to her live sets, she also brings together sounds from industrial, techno, post-club and dark ambient in her DJ sets.
㋛ TINTIN PATRONE live
Tintin Patrone is a German-Filipino sound artist based in Hamburg. She produces sustained, distorted, or eerie sound by directing her single instrument output through a number of low-latency, modified, and/or minimally oscillating digital filters.
㋛ NACHTBOTE live
Musician and artist Hanno Schnegg aka Nachtbote filters sparkling bleeps and hypnotic rhythms from his modular synth. His trance-inducing techno is oriented towards minimal as well as the mystical synaesthesia experiments of an Aleksi Perälä.
㋛ DJ JACKHAMMER dj
DJ Jackhammer is one of Vienna’s finest gabber and hardcore DJs. Her sets are energetic, euphoric and sexy and combine current anthems with oldschool tracks. She is a founding member of the early hardcore/millenium/terror collective Busyaction, which hosts parties and hosts a radio show on the res.radio station.
㋛ DJ WARZONE dj
DJ Warzone has been considered one of the heads of Vienna’s techno underground for a good decade. The producer and DJ with Kurdish roots is as clandestine as he is active. With his harsh lo-fi sound, he serves the entire spectrum of the hardcore continuum. His sets feature dirty drum machines as well as caustic synths.
㋛ FLOWER CRIME dj
The musician, DJ and artist Hannah Hansel represents a similarly hard, but in contrast more minimalist and hypnotic approach in her DJ sets as Flower Crime.
