This event is all ages
Veronica Vasicka is a photographer, musician, DJ and founder of the epic record label and on-line music resource Minimal Wave. As one of the founding members of East Village Radio, she managed the station during its pirate days and began collecting obscure and long forgotten gems that fell somewhere between the Cold Wave, Post Punk and Minimal Synth genres. Not knowing what to classify these bands as, she coined the genre Minimal Wave and set up the website Minimalwave.org as an online resource to share her finds with the rest of the world.
The response to the website was huge and shortly after its launch, Veronica began tracking these artists down and re-issuing their work on the Minimal Wave label. Most of these bands recorded extremely limited copies of their work in their basements and shared their work with the world via John Peel's radio show and a handful of underground music mailings. The music released on the label is a stripped down, DIY and purer approach to mainstream synth pop. Never-the-less, fans of New Wave acts, and bands like Kraftwerk, New Order, and Joy Division who are seeking something a bit different or looking to expand upon the familiar genre, will not be disappointed.
In addition to running Minimal Wave, Veronica launched the Cititrax label as way to expose newer synth-based act as well as obscure House and Italo classics. She DJs bi-monthly around New York City and every Sunday night on her East Village Radio show, Minimal Wave.
Uptempo building rhythms and heavy analog synth textures from one of Brooklyns best DJ's. Second live set at 538. Half of Appetite.
Moon Wheel is a Swedish artist and musician. Increasingly prolific and active on the Berlin scene, he has started turning heads locally and abroad through his finely-crafted and constantly evolving productions.
Cerebral, shape-shifting compositions that are inspired by nature, history, and wandering, synthesizing electronic and organic sounds through dubby groove deconstructions, uncanny ghost-in-the-machine moods, and grey psychedelic hazes. Moon Wheel releases have been steadily shifting towards experimental tones and music for late-night listening.
With a self-titled solo album debut on L.A. label Not Not Fun in March 2013, a follow-up 7” on eclectic Parisian label Wool Recordings and a debut appearance in Berghain alongside Oneohtrix Point Never later in the year, and with a strong 2014 start alongside Marcel Fengler and Peter Van Hoesen at Boiler Room Berlin in early 2014, as well as supporting Bee Mask in London, Moon Wheel has been garnering praise as a producer with a "subtle knack for building a mood" (Resident Advisor), that is "at his best when dissolving the boundaries in weird dub scapes" (Boomkat).
2015 saw him perform in Panorama Bar for the CTM Festival in Berlin and was also a composer in residency at EMS in Stockholm. A second full length album was also released on Where To Now? this year.
