FOUL-UP LAUNCH PARTY FOR METALIZED MAN’S “LOSING YOUR VIRGINITY: METALIZED BOY’S FIRST ADVENTURES IN MANHOOD”


									Metalized Man, “LOSING YOUR VIRGINITY: METALIZED BOY’S FIRST ADVENTURES IN MANHOOD”. Release Party Mayhem

EGYPTRIXX

Canada

Foul-Up has invited Toronto’s Egyptrixx as a special guest gracing the night with a live set just a few weeks after the release of his fourth album “Pure, Beyond Reproach”. Since the release of his debut album on Night Slugs in 2011, Egyptrixx’s “celestial club music” has gradually moved further towards abstract territories while never departing the pulse of the club. Over the course of three albums, several EPs and multiple other projects, Egyptrixx has perfected his very own unique strain of high-gloss-industrial techno-centric sharp-edged club deconstructions. His fourth album comes after a busy 2016, having launched the experimental solo endeavour Ceramic TL, new duo Limit (together with L-Vis 1990, co-founder of Night Slugs) and his NTS show Halocline Trance (sharing name with the record label he formed in 2015).

ZIÚR

Germany

Also guesting the night is Ziúr, an artist that is - as her biography reads - “dedicated to combining different sonic textures and brainy beats into a functional dancefloor framework”.

Ziúr is a co-founder of BOO HOO, an open-ended Berlin night committed to fighting discrimination. As a DJ her undertaking is equally diverse, with an anarchistic approach she dismantles genre-barriers, something which is perfectly paralleled in her own productions where aggressive brutality is rendered with a strange poise. Since putting out her self-released debut mixtape mid-2015, Ziúr’s schedule has taken off in regards to both touring and studio work. 2016 saw the release of two EPs (on Infinite Machine and Objects Ltd.) and in 2017, Ziúr will release her debut album as a joint effort between Objects Ltd. and Planet Mu.

METALIZED MAN

Denmark

The night in question will be presenting the Berlin live debut by Metalized Man who on the preceding day will be releasing his debut full length on Foul-Up. The album - titled “Losing Your Virginity: Metalized Boy’s First Adventures in Manhood” - finds the artist showcasing his own unique sound - alien yet familiar, fusing elements from industrial, ambient, techno and trance. The record follows two previous cassette EPs on Danish imprint Infinite Waves, and was predominantly conceived in live sessions at the artist’s rehearsal space at Copenhagen's Mayhem. The album’s press release describes the artist’s sound as “rich of a spectrum that extends from the murkiest shades to the brightest hues with a zest of trancey tropes. 'Losing Your Virginity: Metalized Boy's First Adventures in Manhood' reacts and evolves like a steady biotope submitted to diverse levels of pressure, constantly shifting scales and tempo – from a deep green palette of organic drops and crackles to the sleek vibrancy of multi-faceted synthetic layers – punctured by paranoid ostinatos. ‘Losing Your Virginity...' shines for setting up its own deeply evocative cinematic playgrounds. Images rise to the surface in a deftly-manoeuvered chaos of sound.”

BEASTIE RESPOND

Denmark

The urge to fuse elements from different musical periods and styles is the key drive behind the Beastie Respond moniker. Between 2011 and 2013 Danish label Teal Recordings released Beastie Respond’s first three EPs followed by the debut album “Fictitious Nostalgia”. Over the course of his Teal releases, the artist moved from making distinct drum’n’bass tunes to having his own genre-defying sound. While over the following years having contributed tracks to Dylan & Loxy’s Cylon Recordings and dBridge’s Exit Records, the proper follow-up to Beastie Respond’s debut full-length came in 2016 with the EP “Back to the Future” on Copenhagen’s Circle Vision imprint. Now, once again, Beastie Respond has given his own sound a complete makeover ahead of a big new project to come out in 2017. Expect an ADHD-fuelled melting pot of sounds and unreleased productions in Beastie Respond’s ever-eclectic DJ sets!

MISANTROP

Germany/Denmark

Danish-born and Berlin-based Misantrop is the founder of Foul-Up, having released his (and the label’s) debut EP “Limerence” in late 2016. While a first impression of the EP typically would be one of approaching disparate yet classic club-trajectories, a more detailed listen reveals that the EPs coherence is found in more subtle places - in the more introverted and experimental influences. A set by Misantrop aims to keep the listeners alert by drawing sounds from a broad sonic territory and embracing stylistic chaos, as well as the occasional foul-up.

MISANTROP’S “LIMERENCE” IS OUT NOW

FOUL-UP PRESENTS COPENHAGEN RELEASE PARTY FOR “LIMERENCE” BY MISANTROP

Misantrop Limerence, Release Party Mayhem

GALAXIAN

Scotland

Galaxian debut in Copenhagen!

Releases on labels including Last Known Trajectory and more recently with DJ Stingray on Shipwrec are both distinctive and remarkably vital and have further cemented Galaxian’s reputation for pushing boundaries in unexpected and exciting new directions. A provocative visual style, political and philosophical attitude further submerge the listener in Galaxian’s visions and ideas. Kitted out in trademark helmet and mask, as if to foresee a collapse of the current social fabric, his live shows are dripping with raw energy and atmosphere generating an immersive experience which commands attention.

2017 promises a host of 12" releases on the impressive Shipwrec, Helena Hauff’s Return To Disorder, Greece’s Lower Parts and more. Harnessing his appetite for an uncompromising and authentic approach Galaxian proceeds to challenge, defy and redefine the sonic parameters.

LBV/NVK

Denmark/Germany

Official live debut!

LBV/NVK is a collaborative project between Lasse Bjørck Volkmann (Metalized Man) and Nicolai Vesterkær Krog (Misantrop). Semi-spontaneously conceived one hazy night in Nicolai’s adopted home Berlin, the project has since been playing out mainly at Mayhem’s rehearsal spaces. So far having been solely focused on live jam sessions, the project’s operation is best described simply as energy-music.

MISANTROP

Germany/Denmark

Tonight celebrates the release of Misantrop’s debut EP “Limerence” which also doubles as the inaugurating release of his own label Foul-Up.

The music by Misantrop builds upon the past, but mostly sidestepping solid amalgamations. His sounds have an obvious kinship with club and dance music, but listen closely... something is turning. This is music rooting in rough social contexts, nurtured on those awkward moments of misapprehension where you half-hear something, make wrong assumptions that still feel so right in the moment – sticking with you although you've been put straight.

So what’s happening on “Limerence”? There are elements of an industrial mindset, but the title piece reverses out of garage/classic house that nods to 90s r’n’b. On “Nocturnal Emission” a guitar solo is vogueing out on the floor, psychedelic rock meets psychotic blues by way of sheer UK sound. Misantrop describes the track as the sonic equivalent to “flirting all night, but going home alone.” Add to that a wobbling bass on the techno-leaning “No. 3”, adorned with a reference to classical composition in the cluster strings whilst “They Don’t Know” puts on a bit of electro, noise and some giallo synth arpeggiation... There’s shine, atmosphere and a rather fascinating depth of field there, even though your usual reference points won't be of much help on this occasion.

“Limerence” draws its inspiration from all over contemporary music and noise grounds – not wearing its “influences” in the most opulent manner but well declaring its material with confidence.

Misantrop is out to change the way you listen to music, no matter how chaotic the journey is, showing off a vision that’s both deeply human and richly transcendent.

For this particular occasion, Misantrop will be playing an open-ended experimental set.
