ALEC EMPIRE
[Berlin, DEU]
Alec Empire, in addition to being an outstanding musician who has made a unique contribution to the evolution of contemporary music, is also an exceptional record producer, remixer, and DJ. In a time when over-hyped bands are dying like flies barely one record into their careers, Alec travels his own path with a determination and a sonic vision rarely seen amongst today's musicians.

He started the band Atari Teenage Riot, the revolutionary outfit like no other, which made charged political statements and even started riots.

Alec has worked with an astonishing variety of musicians. From the likes of Bjork, Einsturzende Neubauten, Rammstein, Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth, Slayer and many more...

He has toured with Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against The Machine, Beck, and the list goes on like a Christmas present list. He's ticked most boxes on the Achievement's List, toured the world, received a Kerrang Award, and has had his music in Blockbuster Hollywood films.

Alec Empire is louder than My Bloody Valentine or Motorhead. When he feels like it.

Current releases:
Atari Teenage Riot - Reset
Alec Empire - Low On Ice (Remastered)

Alec Empire and Nic Endo (ATR, Remixes for Raveonettes, Dillinger Escape Plan and more) have put together a new show for the upcoming tour.

Alec: "This has been a real challenge for me. I am in a position where younger audiences keep discovering my early work. Which is great of course! In the current political climate people seem to demand more from a song than boring entertainment. But this also meant looking back at singles from years ago to then re-invent those songs and breathe fresh life into them. Usually bands deliver the sort of set-list which could be compared to "Best of" albums. I didn't want to do that. We will play classics like ATR's "Revolution Action", but they have to sound as fresh as they did when they were first released. We put the music in the context of today. And trust me...this will be intense. Technology has moved on so much...It is exciting to push the boundaries further!"

Alec Empire is many things to many people:

- The charismatic front man of Atari Teenage Riot (German magazine SPEX even called him "the first true German popstar")

- The innovative and intellectual electronic music producer who, very similar to Brain Eno or Aphex Twin, would perform at classical music halls and score films.

The guitar wizard during his phase for the album "Futurist".

- The digital activist who is probably the closest musician to the hacker scene, who gave last years opening keynote speech at the biggest hacker conference in the world, the 31c3 by the Chaos Computer Club, premiered music videos at Defcon in Las Vegas.

He simply does not fit in. He always manages to keep his integrity. This made him win a massive audience over all the years.

Dave Grohl was quoted in Kerrang Magazine saying that Alec Empire "had done something with this music so radical that nothing afterward will survive."

Indeed a very good reason to go and see him and make up your own mind!

KAZUKI KOGA
[Montreal, CA / Fukuoka, JP]
Kazuki Koga is a Japanese experimental electronic musician born in Fukuoka, Japan who has been based in Montreal since 2015. His music comes from the tradition known as Gorge, best described as an experimental electronic interpretation of Nepalese folk percussion. Born in a mountains of Nepal and India, and developed in Japan, Gorge is only vaguely defined by its own secret codes and legends. Its purpose is to communicate the aesthetic and spiritual sublimity of rock climbing, and to explore the climbing route that leads to the summit of the gods.
