Camera

A musical drift that sweeps the listener into a trance. Shimmering elegance, forceful bursts of garage rock, a gentle flow, spherical flight. And one can hear it resonate beyond the horizon of this music. Searching, re-searching, yearning. You never know what comes after the unpredictable, brutal, quiet and fragile moments.

Darbo Džiaugsmai

Rhythms kick like a sewing machine, guitar melodies flow in precise locksmith mode, bass lines punch like an assembly line. Everything wrapped in bright and positive lyrics. What could be more fun than such noise coming from this song factory! Stavaris (VRR), Burakas (EOM sound architect), Rožė (cutthroats, VRR) heat some of the most beloved hits in high creative temperature, soak them in sour realism and prepare for timelessness.

Nourished by various movements of musical and poetic avant-garde, Dada and Surrealism, experimental rock, Rock in Opposition, 1970-1980 years, with an unusual musical and textual imagination, the compositions of this society take the form of a dadaist avant-rock, full of smashes and contrasts, of controlled and recurrent eruptions as well as sharp humour.

To reveal unseen vicarious causation, division of time, depth of the non-metric. Explore the limits of appearance and thresholds of revelation. To grasp hidden knowledge of algorithmic verses, to unfold unexplored paths between lands of the virtual and the actual, to unlock eschatological & synthetic prophecies of the club culture: is his amr (أمر).

For a DIY vinyl only label, it has generated international recognition as a trademark of quality.

Kym Wild

The young man stepped into the hall of mirrors
Where he discovered a reflection of himself
Sometimes he saw his real face
And sometimes a stranger at his place
He fell in love with the image of himself
And suddenly the picture was distorted
He made up the person he wanted to be
And changed into a new personality
The artist is living in the mirror
With the echoes of himself.

No expectations, no prejudges.

Ondula

Oscar der Winzige

Oscar Olias is founder of Sucked Orange, a gallery in Berlin, based on rituals and lucid dreams.
Son of a collector of avant-gardedementia artifacts, forgotten universes and hidden histories, "Der Winzige" continues his fathers work in the most private way possible; through re-realising this music with a select audience, keen to discovery new musical territory, hungry to push new boundaries and explore their own limits of fantasy. The experience is not solely musical. This is just one key in gaining a deeper understanding of a world, enriched by friendship, the collective experience and self-discovery.
Within cement caves in the early hours of the Berlin morning, the audience is invited to immerse themselves, to dive, as if under the influence of a slow-acting psychotropic poison, into abstraction, guided by sound into unknown atmospheres.

POL

Kaunas’s techno scene long-timer POL carefully selects the opportunities to showcase his masterful variations of sound. Raw, eclectic but perfectly built musical twists take the listener through a beautifully distorted world of electronic explorations.

S13

In his DJ sets and mixes S13 weaves this diverse palette into a coherent whole, constructing thought-provoking sound narratives with unexpected stylistic twists, radical mood swings, and powerful, sometimes even surreal atmospherics. Strict rhythmic patterns might suddenly give way to abstract drone voyages or disengaged improvisations, dismantling traditional musical structures. Due to this his selections can be perceived as an exercise in eclecticism and a challenge to the musical status quo.
