Sicoer: “Explorations” Solo Show Opening

Urban Spree Galerie presents “Explorations“, the first solo show of the Krakow-based calligraffiti painter SICOER in Berlin.

“Explorations” – initially due to open in March 2020 – is the outcome of several one-week working sessions at Urban Spree in Berlin during the months of January and February 2020, interspersed with intense studio time in Krakow during the lockdown.

The Covid-19 closed the borders and the artist found himself in an unexpected form of retreat and focused entirely on his art, endlessly experimenting, finding new tools, new ways of expression and ultimately discovering a more abstract part of his work which is giving a new direction to the show.

Sicoer is a calligraffiti painter based in Krakow well known for his vandal graffiti as well as his handstyle studio works. Having started graffiti in 1998 and still active nowadays, Sicoer created in parallel a studio practice based on the combination of letters, geometric compositions, flow and a limited use of color range. Relentlessly exploring, Sicoer turned recently his graphic experiments towards calligraffiti abstraction.

In un’atmosfera di totale inadeguatezza, potrai fare da tappezzeria (come del resto hai sempre fatto fino ad oggi) oppure scatenarti rendendoti ridicolo al centro della pista, o ancora farti leggere i tarocchi da una strega in un angolo buio del locale.
Per gli amanti dei trasformismi, angolo travestimenti e make-up pazzerelli e poi via a postare selfie imbarazzanti con hashtag inutili.

By popular demand (????) after more than two years comes the first Disagio Party.

For lovers of transforming, corner disguises and make-up, and then off to post embarrassing selfies with useless hashtags.

Dress-code: difficulty (s.m.), embarrassment (s.m.), malaise (s.m.), discomfort (s.m.), entanglement (s.m.), annoyance (s.m.), uncomfortable (s.), inconvenience (s.m.), lack of comfort (s.m.), discomfort (s.m.), need (s.m.), poverty (s.m.), misery (s.m.), deprivation (s.m.)

\\El Rass\\
In Arabic means (The head), also known as Mazen El Sayed, he is a rapper and a music producer from Tripoli Lebanon. He already has in his discography 5 albums, the newest being “Baad Al Hazimeh” (After defeat), in addition to more than 200 singles in collaboration with many other music-makers and rappers from the region. He is a member of the “MSKH” collective and co-founder of the label “Hamim”.

El Rass’s work has gained fame during the last 7 years around the Arab world, especially for his dense lyrical content and the rejection of being confined to a limited set of topics or approaches. But also for an uncompromising spirit of expression, intertwined with a vision of rap as a free space for nuance and detail. He interacts with heritage as a source of inspiration, from within it, in continuity. While in form, El Rass makes his musical choices with a drive to push out of conventional formats, on the levels of arrangement and diversity in performance between singing and rapping.

GOLD „Why Aren’t You Laughing?“ Tour

GOLD ( + special guest: Nordra )
25.04.2019 Berlin – Urban Spree
Einlass: 20:00 Uhr, Beginn: 21:00 Uhr
Tickets: https://bit.ly/2V2rWEn

GOLD sind zurück! Pünktlich zum Release von „Why Aren’t You Laughing?“ gehen die Niederländer um den ehemaligen The Devil´s Blood Gitarristen Thomas Sciarone auf Tour!

Auf ihrem neuen Album lässt die Band Wärme und Kälte, Liebe und Tod, Hoffnung und Verzweiflung, den Niedergang der Zivilisation und persönlichen Traumata miteinander verschmelzen. Der kantigen Drive von GOLD wird gepaart mit düsteren Gitarrenwände und den gefühlvollen, verletzlichen Gesangsbögen von Frontfrau Milena Eva. Das Album bewegt sich irgendwo zwischen Dark Pop, Post-Punk und Black Metal. Nach den gefeierten Vorgängerwerken „No Image“ und “Optimist” steckt das neue Album voller Hooks, die vom Produzenten Jaime Gomez Arellano brillant eingefangen werden. Sehr persönlichen Texte thematisieren die Absurdität des Lebens.

Die Band kann es kaum erwarten, mit “Why Are You You Laughing?” auf Tour zu gehen und noch mehr Leute mit ihrer beeindruckenden Liveshow zu überzeugen.



Poolside

Poolside began as a recording project in a converted Los Angeles backyard pool house in early 2011, producing sunny tracks of subaquatic indie dance music in this makeshift recording studio. Surfacing first in the form of a YouTube video for the catchy track “Do You Believe?” Poolside were soon gaining local and national attention, with DJs like James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, techno legend Derrick May, and disco don Todd Terje spinning these tracks at events and a growing online following. Throughout 2011 Poolside continued making waves with a sound called “daytime disco” through tracks like their cover of Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” and original tunes. In 2012 Poolside worked on a remix for longtime disco punks The Rapture and held fans over with a new single and video for a song called “Slow Down” as they prepared to release their debut album. That album, Pacific Standard Time, was self-released in July of 2012.

After the album’s release, remixes for artists like Matthew Dear, Little Dragon and Fool’s Gold soon followed, as well as rehearsing and touring with a live band and doing DJ sets around the world. As thoughts turned to a second album, Poolside went on ice for a year to regroup, beginning to work in earnest on another album in the Fall of 2016. While still revolving around the sunny, laid-back disco sound of PST, these sessions yielded the additions of up-tempo dance songs and more guitars, and generally more fleshed-out arrangements. Poolside surprise released their second album Heat in 2017.
