MERCIMER LIVE (SE // A New Dircetion Music)
Mercimer is the project of the musical wizard Walter Berge, originally from Sweeden, now living in Bergen and releasing music under the label A New Direction Music.
Mercimer released his debut EP «Leagues» in April 2013, - with the singel «Walk At Night» starring Lisa Gagerman on vocals, which got very good critical acclaim on several well-known music blogs. «This is the first I'm hearing of Mercimer, but I was instantly enamored once I pressed play – not to mention completely in love with the track artwork (.....) The vocals are pop at the core, but are surrounded by gritty beats and bass which add a pleasant roughness to the sound. I'm left intrigued, and am looking forward to checking out the rest of the EP, but, for now this track will surely be on repeat.
«Every sound needs a little bit of ugly. Every rhytm need to get knocked about». Mercimer uses a lot of sampling, manipulating tapes, and doing live recordings of instruments to combine with his electronic sound. This is a live act that we think might give you goose bumps and make the hair on your arms stand up!
MADE IN SANE (NO // Eskimo Recordings)
Made In Sane consist of the two members Magnus Lauritzen and Johannes Hallanger. The duo started to make music together in late 2011, but have recently taken up the production to a new level!
Made In Sane made their debut release, Flying Circuit, in October 2013 on the critical acclaimed Belgium record company Eskimo Recordings. It instantly got good feedback from a vide range of musicians, like Tensnake, Moullinex, Kasper Bjørke and Bottin, and they recently followed up with a remix of Lindstrøm's Faar-I-Kaal from his album Smalhans.
They have only played once earlier as Made In Sane in Norway, so this is a great chance to check out two talented young guys, a new and exciting duo that you definitly will hear a lot more from in the near future!
GRAY CHALK (CH // Hot Jam, Maksimal)
Gray Chalk is raised as part of the long time DJ team Radiorifle. Apart from hosting their Radiotime club nights at Berne's repeatedly awarded Club Bonsoir, in the heart of Switzerland, they played several highly respected festivals as the Monteux Jazz or the sunny flavoured Sónar. Gray Chalk evolved as the solo project in 2013, focusing on house music in the good, old, rough and disco-heavy way.
Gray Chalk has played in several acclaimed clubnights the last months and gained a reputation for his DJ-sets, varying from smooth disco to melodic techno. Recently signed to the limited edition and vinyl-only swiss imprint Hot Jam and Bergen's emerging Maksimal, there is definitely more to discover in the near future. He will be our closing DJ act for the night. Be ready to dance into the night in a feverish disco dream, with smooth techno surrounding you.
