YPY (JP, Em Records) Live Fyoelk (DE, No 'Label') Live Weird Dust (BE, Kerm) Live
Live electronics from this international trio of acts.
YPY is a solo project by an Osaka-based multi-instrumentalist and composer Koshiro Hino. Hino plays a central role in the four-piece minimalist instrumental band Goat, and hardcore induced percussive outfit Bonanzas. He also operates his own cassette tape label birdFriend. He manages to maintain his own universe as YPY to express himself in extremely unique and highly improvisational live sets using cassette tapes.
Fyoelk is a legend around these parts, and we are very happy to have him back. Fyoelk's sound could be described trip to early 90s chicago via a fuzzyfelt wormhole Johann also designed the dank flyer for the event, for which we are very grateful.
Weird Dust is the fizzing solo project of Mike Crabbé from Tav Exotic (with Bear Bones, Lay Low). Not his first time playing the BT backroom, last time he truly turned the place inside out with a psychedelic session that had us all tripping.
MANISDRON (JP, Goat/The Noup) + OPTICAL MACHINES + DJ Crew: Misses BGM (CN, JP) + MORE TBC
MANISDRON (GOAT, The NOUP, JP) Takafumi Okada has played Occii twice over the past years as drummer
for Goat & his own band The Noup. Now back and playing solo as
Manisdron – a blast of rhythms, electronics and charged vocals. He uses voice, drums, synthesizers and composed electronic layers to
create a solid hypnotic groove. Sometimes it feels poly-rhythmic,
sometimes it feels like hammered beat flowing from him freely during his
energetic live performance. As with his band activities (in Noup & Goat since 2017
respectively) there is a strong influence of Post Punk, EBM and
Krautrock. In the past, he self-released 2 EPs as CD and a cassette.
Takafumi also books experimental shows in his hometown of Okayama. Links: https://soundcloud.com/manisdron/ https://youtu.be/hi2Xgfadt_c OPTICAL MACHINES Optical Machines make a pure, authentic impression by combining their
creations of sound (scapes) and visuals. Rather than (taking) a static
position with flashy laptops they choose an open set-up which invites
the audience to their laboratory-like playground. Their set-up contains
an obscure variety of modified record players, pattern models, lamps,
lenses, cameras and analogue synthesizers to make a both trippy and
fascinating show. Optical Machines is a real live show with visuals and
sound created on the spot…. + MORE TBC DJ crew: Misses BGM (CN, JP) Newly formed BGM selection outift. Building up the excitement while breaking down borders. 7 euros + 1 euro donation asked for Occii Fundraising

Their sound mainly comprises of nerve edge guitar pulses backed with a solid and reptitive rhythm section into which they weave voices to create a unique driving groove. Recently they have adopted analog synthesizers and play more polyrhythmic minimal songs unlike dance music.

Following on from last months show with Antwerp's Dolphins Into The Future + Monopoly Child Star Searchers - it's the turn of another couple of madly talented Belge dwellers to descend into the back room. This time we have solo electronic performances from the members of Brussels based Tav Exotic. Both maintain high levels of psychedelic channeling, concentrated into minimal yet expressive equipment setups. Another good one.
