Driftmachine @ Berlin Atonal 2017
Driftmachine will perform during the new edition of Berlin Atonal, which will take place from August 16 to August 20. In a very special session on August 19, inside the hardware based Schaltzentrale room, where the audience stands behind the performers, watching them work. This is a unique opportunity to check their complex dialogue with machines and modular synthesis. Shackleton, Rashad Becker, Abul Mogard, Carla dal Forno, Wolf Eyes, Equiknoxx, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Demdike Stare, LCC, Roland Porter, Puce Mary, Powell + Wolfgang Tillmans, Emptyset, Varg and other artists will also perform at this event.

“The last few releases on Mexican-based label Umor Rex have established the Berlin-based duo Driftmachine as one of the more complex, moody and intelligent acts working in the hardware focused synthesiser landscape. Their music combines kosmische, dub, Industrial and Avant-garde elements. They are natural choices to play the special Schaltzentrale room at Atonal 2017, playing in an intimate setting surrounded by the machines that bring their tense grooves and eerie electronic atmospheres to life.” — Berlin Atonal
