GRAND JETÉ w/ Objekt, Silva Rymd and Annika Henderson (15 June 2017)
GRAND JETÉ is a club music series. Started in 2014, this year’s series again presents extraordinary DJs and live acts on four Thursdays from June to October 2017 in a new venue: The Off. The participating artists come from different musical backgrounds, however all performances at GRAND JETÉ have on thing in common: the exploration of rhythm and sound. A thrilling listening and dance event guaranteed!
Objekt (Hessle Audio/PAN), DJ set
Despite releasing only a small handful of records, Objekt has quickly become one of the most consistently lauded producers of recent years. The Berlin-based artist has garnered an enviable reputation for attention to detail, evocative arrangements and inventive, effervescent sound design, coaxing sonic features from the most unlikely of places. His sets, while broadly focused on techno, frequently duck and dive between the hypnotic and engrossing, incorporating off-kilter broken beats, breakneck electro, acid, noise, house, EBM and anything else necessary to illustrate his version of events, sometimes taking large jumps in tempo and drawing fully from the last 30 years of recorded electronic music.
Silva Rymd (:// about blank), DJ set
It all started in 2007 with her project ‘electricdress,’ which organized workshops at Spartacus—a venue in Potsdam, Germany—where she immersed herself in the world of electronic beats, organizing parties, and representing a small club collective. This launched an intense musical exchange between Leipzig and Berlin. In 2008 she decided to move to Berlin. Since then she has been working for ://about blank—her „living room“ as she calls it—garnering inspiration from labels like Sandwell District or Prologue, and in the dark and echoing Techno-sounds of this period, she started DJing. Currently, she is a resident DJ of ://about blank resident crew and passionately orchestrating the ‚Ghosts*’ and ‚Zeroize’ events in Berlin.
Annika Henderson (Stones Throw), DJ set
The musician and poet Annika Henderson made a name for herself under the name ANIKA with two highly praised eponymous albums (recorded with Geoff Barrow of Portishead and his band „Beak“) which she toured worldwide. She is also a well-known DJ and hosts the programme „Do Not Go Gentle“ on Berlin Community Radio. As she puts it: „For djing i normally play a mix of dub, electronic, house, techno, weird. It’s more like a trip and performance in itself.“
