Stray Landings \ Π3.5 Premiere

The latest to merge from the nascent π Electronics roster is Damcase (real name Dimitris Damaskos). 2016 saw a bumper year for Damaskos, with three vinyl releases including one on Bas Mooy’s prolific Mord imprint and the legendary Bunker Records. Much of Damaskos’ brand of techno brings to mind the heydey of DIY bedroom electronics. Listen, for example, to the full-throttle pelt of his Bunker release. There is a clear slapdash approach to these productions. They feel as though they have been made on-the-spot and in-the-moment. Everything is simply pushed to the max: subtlety is auxiliary. This gives them an immense projection velocity; one that cannot be matched by over-considered productions.

This latest release on π is particularly nasty. Each basslines is a little snot-nosed bastard. Like some pissed-off pitbull, they snarl and bare their teeth. The release is also electrified by sharp static that snaps out in random bursts like a live wire. By the end, everything is caked in a blanket of noise, almost too harsh for the human ear. Totally anti-social, totally obnoxious and totally gripping. This is a release strongly recommended to annoy neighbours, parents and, well… basically everyone.

Listen below for an exclusive stream of ‘PI03.5’, the closing track of the EP, and the nastiest of the lot.

RA Event

On Friday April 7th the 23rd Π party sees another collaboration with Samsara Sessions & also plays host to the pre-event of the Athenian, FASMA Festival. Fasma 2017 will take place between May 4 – 7.

After a successful debut at Berlin’s ://about blank in February, Pi Electronics and Samsara Sessions come back with a 2 room takeover and a wide range of techno, electro, jungle and everything in between.
The Berlin edition of FASMA festival’s pre-event is the final of three parties, the other two took place in January in Athens and February in Milan.

The MDF Floor hosts DJ sets from:
FASMA Festival & Modal Analysis co-founder Kondaktor, techno heavyweights, AnD, gaining much attention over the last 5 years for their brutal DJ sets that are made for closing down the night! Joining us also, the highly acclaimed British producers, Raime, who along with their releases on Blackest Ever Black have received much deserved respect from all corners of the music spectrum and no doubt take influence from the punk, grime, psych, and of course drum n’ bass. Last but certainly not least, we are delighted to welcome resident DJs from Hamburg’s Golden Pudel club, Nina and Good News (Tobias Duffner) who will no doubt play a very eclectic and careful crafted set.
:-AND a one-hour LIVE set from one of Berlin’s favourites, Sleeparchive.

The Lobby Floor will see sets from friends and fellow Pi Electronics label artists. Firstly a debut b2b DJ set from two of Rotterdam’s finest producers Charlton & Damcase aka Chronicles of the West. Damcase returns to Berlin to play again for the Pi Electronics label, this time promoting his forthcoming solo release on the label. Next up fellow Modal Analysis artist and co-founder ANFS performs an alternative set for this occasion. Finally and as well expected, 3.14 also does some digging through his collection for a special set featuring lots of influential music.
