October 19 - In the Jungle

Join us on Thursday, October 19th for Basic Electricity #23 with Rastko and Plastiq Phantom at the König Otto in Berlin, Neukölln.



Rastko makes ‘Free Electronics’ - music that ranges from minimal to noisy chaotic analogue feedback. In concert, he fearlessly explores the wilder side of his synths. Click here for videos and here for an interview with Rastko.



Plastiq Phantom play their “Concerts for 2 to 6 Instruments in Love Major” at Basic Electricity #23 to reveal the softer side Goldwiener, normally known for acid house workouts. Prepare to be seduced!

König Otto is housed in the former Kindl brewery. It’s an amazing space with a great ambient sound.

We’re looking forward to seeing you on October 19th at the slightly earlier time of 19:30 for Basic Electricity #23!

September 28 - Switched On

Join us on Thursday, September 28th for Basic Electricity #22 with Michael Vorfeld and Wouter Jaspers at the König Otto in Berlin, Neukölln.



Michael Vorfeld treats us to his Glühlampenmusik, an audio-visual performance using sounds that are generated by different light bulbs and electric switches, made audible by microphones and pick-ups. His buzzing, flickering, rhythmic music could be the definition of basic electricity.



We’re very happy to welcome Wouter Jaspers back for his second appearance at Basic Electricity. The Koma Elektronik head-honcho and Vatican Analog artist uses field recordings and synth textures to make music that is at times delicate and brutal.

König Otto is housed in the former Kindl brewery. It’s a unique space with a great ambient sound. Sunset is at 18:50 on September 28th - we’re looking forward to seeing you when the lights go on for Basic Electricity #22!

May 19 - Something New

Join us on Friday, May 19th for Basic Electricity #21 with Lindred and Melfi at the König Otto in Berlin, Neukölln.



Lindred creates hyper-emotional music. Heavily processed textures meet saturnine melodies and elastic vocals. For Basic Electricity, she will be performing a hybrid set with a modular system, laptop and voice, exploring playful chaos and distorted softness.



"Comfort-zone abandonment" is how The Wire described Melfi’s latest tape on Mexico City based label Umor Rex. Melfi uses modular synths to build twisted pop-songs that occasionally slip into tender noise territories.

König Otto is housed in the former Kindl brewery. It’s a unique space with a great ambient sound, perfectly suited to the music of our new guests. You can get an idea of the venue from these videos from our re-opening gig: Trio, Hainbach.

We look forward to seeing you at the next Basic Electricity on Friday, May 19th!
