It is with with great joy, honour and anticipation that we announce the 10th Anniversary of Berlin’s weirdest, wildest, and most legendary festival, TRASHFEST.

FULL LINEUP ANNOUNCED:

BANDS:
Freak de l’Afrique (Berlin/ Man Recordings)
Conjunto Papa Upa (Venezuela/Amsterdam, Names You Can Trust)
Scúru Fitchádu (Cabo Verde/Lisbon)
Mfa Kera and Mike Russell’s Black Heritage (Madagascar/USA/Berlin)

Send the Friend (Thessaloniki)
NESTA (PT)

Freak de l’Afrique is a Berlin based collective of Djs, Mcs and dancers who share a passion for modern African Club sounds. They are an energy EXPLOSION and full of legendary creatives and have worked alongside Goethe Institute and Redbull to be able to tour East Africa and Europe and spread their floor burning vibes.

Conjunto Papa Upa is the latest band by “The Hardest Working Man in Tropical Music” Alex Figueira (Fumaça Preta, Music With Soul, VintageVoudou), alongside percussion meister Gerardo Rosales. Papa Upa is a latin rhythm machine, dipping into the grooviest parts of Venezuelan Afro, Salsa and Carribean heritage and then wrung through the psychedelic and dj culture processor you can expect from a Names You Can Trust band.

Scúru Fitchádu
Mixing anti-colonial punk politics, live and programmed drums and exceptional stage shows with the ancient rhythms of funana, the outlawed and ancient music from Cabo Verde, Scuru Fitchadu feels like Death Grips if they grew up inthe island pennisula…..It’s their first gig in Berlin and we are honoured to host them.

Mfa Kera with Mike Russell and Black Heritage
Some years ago I was digging in Amsterdam and found an amazing LP with an astonishing face of the artist on the front cover. It was the amazing Mfa Kera, who I interpreted to be something like a Madagascan answer to Nina Hagen…. and it quickly became my favourite new wave album of all time. A little investigation found she was living in Berlin, and still going very strong with many musical and artistic projects. I’ll post more of this story later but for now, I am BURSTING to present to our Trashfest audience, MFA KERA will be performing with a full afrobeat band!!!

Conjunto Vaya Nacho This Band is based on the affection of Colombian Vallenato Music. Rocking an accordeon, bass, 1973 drum machine and guest singers, we are very happy to have these locals join us.

j.do Rio aka João Xavi
I have a perverse pleasure in the wild in-yo-face electric boogaloo of 80s-90s Baille Funk and Miami Bass, so I personally invited specialist J.do Rio aka João Xavi of Batuque Lowfi. He has made a mix just for us, listen and wig out and understand how fun this will be in the Urban Spree basement on the night of Trashfest !!!

Dj Anacaona is also a Venezuelan émigré to Berlin’s tropical music scene with connections to the La Regla Party here. After being in all of the rebellious music scenes of vibrant Caracas; Hardcore, Reggae, Hip Hop – she brings the same attitude to her heavy bomb salsa mixes which you have to hear to believe.

Dj Andi Stetcher (Schladi Schladez)
Andi Stecher is an austrian born and berlin based drummer and electronic musicia and DJ Andi Stechers music is not drawn to one specific genre. He refers to a variety of styles of music in his pieces and therefore forms a very unique hybrid sound. His music is often interspersed with polyrhythmic elements, field recordings, coupled with drones, subbass, analog electronics and electroacoustic elements.

We are deeply indebted to Musicboard Berlin for helping us to set up this incredible event, as well as our longterm partners Urban Spree.

It goes without saying Trashfest is an open space free of discrimination and any sexist, racist, homophobic or transphobic behaviour will get your ass kicked out.

Opening of Anthony Lister’s exhibition “Sneaky Bit In”

Urban Spree Galerie presents “Sneaky Bit In“, a solo show by the Australian visual & street artist Anthony Lister. The Opening of the show will be on Friday, September 14th, 2018 in the presence of the artist.

Invited by Urban Spree as part of our Artist-in-Residence program, Lister spent 3 weeks at Urban Spree between August and September 2018 to create in situ a whole new body of large scale works, installations, media art, and a large mural.

For this residency project, Lister incorporated a large palette of references stemming from cubism, Picasso’s “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” and “Guernica“, Alejandro Jodorowski’s “The Holy Montain“, African masks, religion, divination and tarot, Aboriginal trans women, and direct references to Damien Hirst.

Lister’s outdoor mural at Urban Spree is a variation and alternate narrative on the theme of the main painting of the exhibition, in a style reminiscent of Egon Schiele and incorporating elements of Picasso’s Guernica. The wall was executed with a 6m long extension pole, and signed with a paint-filled fire extinguisher.

Anthony Lister (b. 1979 in Brisbane) is a contemporary Australian-born painter and installation artist, best known for his merging of “high” and “low” cultural imagery. Particularly well known as a street artist, Lister is considered amongst the best in the field with graffiti art legend Banksy even commenting that Lister appears to piss great art in his sleep.

He studied at the Griffith Queensland College of Art and was further educated under mentor Max Gimblett in New York City. Lister helped pioneer the street art movement in his home city as a teenager and is considered Australia’s premier street artist.

Lister employs multiple media including charcoal, acrylic, spray paint, oil pastels to create his scrawling, figurative style.

Lister has exhibited nationally and internationally including at the Lazarides Gallery in London, Underdogs Gallery in Lisbon, New Image Art Gallery in Los Angeles, Robert Fontaine Gallery in Miami, Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York, Olsen Gallery in Sydney, Black Art Projects in Melbourne, Fireworks Gallery in Brisbane, and Allouche Gallery in New York City.

Lister currently lives and works between Sydney and New York City.

Middlemist Red & Desert Mountain Tribe

Middlemist Red (HU) is a psychedelic-rock band from Budapest, Hungary, formed in late 2012. They released their first EP, ‚As If You Could Mess This Up,‘ in November 2013.
In June 2014, the band received international attention after winning Deezer’s ‘Young Guns’ international music competition out of 182 bands from 182 different countries. Since then, Middlemist Red has played at major Central European Festivals, such as Sziget Festival (HU), Exit Festival (SRB), Rock for People (CZ), and VOLT Festival (HU) and has also shared the stage with bands like Wooden Shjips and The Black Lips. Middlemist Red’s debut album, ‚Supersonic Overdrive,‘ was released in November 2014.
The band had its first European tour in March, 2015 which took place in cities such as Berlin, Prague, Warsaw and Vilnius. Soon after the tour, they were chosen to participate in Midem Festival’s Artist Accelerator program. Later that year the band attended Hungary’s biggest music award ceremony, the ‚Fonogram,‘ where the jury selected them as the ‚Best New Act‘.
They started 2016 with various concerts at Europe’s biggest showcase festival ‚Eurosonic Noorderslag‘ in Groningen, sponsored by Rockpalast, and later that year they played at the UK’s major showcase festival ‚The Great Escape‘ and at ‚Tallinn Music Week‘.
After a busy summer they released their second album ‚Ripple Soul‘ and toured in Europe (Paradiso Amsterdam, FZW Dortmund, 8MM & Badehaus Berlin, Roxy Prague etc.)

Desert Mountain Tribe (UK) got off to a flying start with early standout track ‘Coming Down’, which was featured on Reverb Conspiracy Volume 2, a release double-headed by the equally legendary imprints Fuzz Club Records and Austin Psych Fest.

Following a debut tour of Northern Europe in the winter of 2014/15, the band quickly progressed to perform at leading festivals within the psych community like Eindhoven Psych Lab ’15 and Lisbon Psych Fest ’15.

“an astonishingly excellent debut” Big Takeover Mag, NYC “Sheer space rock bedlam.” Clash Music, UK

In 2015, Desert Mountain Tribe was invited to participate with the Converse Rubber Tracks recording project in London, where they produced a handful of cool and well-received demos that would ultimately assist in finding an album deal with Membran Entertainment Group in Europe/UK, and Metropolis Records in North America.

Debut album Either That Or The Moon was released in the spring of 2016 to a wealth of positive notices including respected platforms Drowned In Sound, Louder Than War and Classic Rock. The album picked up heavy rotation across U.S college radio and also the legendary KEXP where the band was invited to perform a live session. Recently the band has found support from BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne and Chris Hawkins.

The band have recently completed their second European tour in support of debut album Either That Or The Moon, and is looking forward to the continued release of new material in early Spring, and will again tour Europe and the U.S in the spring of 2017.

Germes Gang über alles!

The notorious Germes Gang is landing at Urban Spree for an exhibition of drawings, live tattooing and a new book release.

scan033 - copie

After 10 years of nerdy graffiti and drawings. the Lisbon-based cult Germes Gang comes to Berlin with 30 new exclusive drawings of what have made them infectious in the underworld: a porn-indulged & narcissic remix of icons of the anime, comics, marvel, the simpsons and some personal oddities such as boxing champs, obese people in wheelchairs wearing sports outfit, football players, interracial gang bangs, and low cost food empire Lidl (a longstanding obsession) to name a few.

Germes Gang gives steroids to those icons and let them live the unrestricted life they always wanted.

Urban Spree will release a limited edition book with the new series.

On the Opening Night, Diogo Rodrigues (@xyz_xyz) comes to Berlin and will tattoo out of the Urban Spree based Amor de Madre Berlin tattoo studio. Bookings => galerie@urbanspree.com
