DIE GOLDENEN ZITRONEN

 

 

For the past 30 years the legendary Hamburg band is an institution of musical counter-enlightenment, traveling through a reference system from punk to techno with Krautrock awareness in order to formulate political standpoints at the height of the time. Their extensive network of theatre, music and film projects has also left traces in their music, as have the real battles of cities and people.

MAP.ACHE

 

 

Jan Barich aka Map.ache, long-time resident DJ of Leipzig’s Conne Island, part of the reliably great KANN label and the Manamana DJ duo. After his lauded 2015 Giegling debut, being remixed by Dixon and contributing to the Permanent Vacation compilation series, joining the AVM roster is only a seemingly surprising move for Map.ache, considering the label’s long-standing relationship with (electronic) dance music and previous remixes done by Map. ache for the label’s The Robocop Kraus and PTTRNS.

URBAN HOMES

 

 

Shaped and influenced by ever-changing musical predilections, the group developed a style that drew influence from house music, dub, kraut rock, balearic, and disco—a sound that is complex and structured, but powerful when performed live. This brings together all of the group’s influences, marking the boundary for a house-music sound that can actually be played as a band.

 

Urban Homes fully abandon classic song structures and embrace the dynamics of electronic music, a sound that is clever, ingrained in a tradition, and imperative in its consequence.

VON SPAR

 

 

Precarious bon vivants, gifted musicians, radical guys—Von Spar are many things, but above all, they are one of the most amazing bands in the realms that the British music press once baptized as Krautrock.

 

Their recent output has emerged as a heterogeneous sound ranging from melodic piano disco, to tripped out soundscapes, to grandiose soft rock. One might call it music for a better world, if that didn't sound so lofty. Yet, Von Spar are not at all lofty, they are wide awake. This is not escapism, but life in the streets. And that's how they live it.
