Proud Magazine Cover & Feature





"Amrei Hofstätter lives in Berlin,  works as a freelance graphic designer, illustrates and writes for the spanish art and design magazine Belio. Her last exhibition held place at Gallery Box32 this Oktober, which has also included a clothing collection with her designs. Her digitally created works are abstract and geometric hallucinations of a world in which mostly female characters merge with shapes and objects inspired by classic origami. This results in the creation of surreal hybrids, who’s existential sense seems to consist of nothing other than their entire and absolute unfolding and abstraction. Far Eastern aesthetics, ritual, magic and quasi esoteric-religious symbolism and iconography confront the viewer with a complex and not always easily decipherable theme. At first glance one enters an idyllic, almost childlike scenario, only to encounter topics such as pain, trauma and self-mutilation, which ultimately always converge into a unique existential problem: the desire for transformation in comparison with the fear of failure, the total disappearance and extinction. Thereby Amrei sees herself heavily influenced by the Freudian psychoanalysis and the existence of the "uncanny", a concept that nowadays finds its use in Cybernetics as the "Uncanny Valley Effect". This condition describes the extremely rejecting reaction of a human towards an artificial creature, exactly the moment when the line between artificial and human has been crossed. "I want to deliver my audience to a similar feeling," she says, “when my works stop just being “me” and starts being “them”, when suddenly a very interesting moment begins in which they find something hitherto suppressed in themselves. This may be a memory, the hint of a feeling, an instinctive desire. In any case, viewers should not think about me, but about themselves. Roles of gender should become blurred, the stereotypical use of "feminine" colors is nothing other than a red herring. I do not like cliches. I like to surprise the viewer, to show him that things are not always what they seem to be at first glance. "

Young Smoke: Space Zone

"After releasing the debut of one of Footwork’s most esteemed veterans earlier this year with Traxman's LP, now we’ve decided to highlight the work of one of Footwork’s youngest and most promising producers.

At just 18, Young Smoke a.k.a. Chicago’s David Davis has carved out an idiosyncratic and very listenable niche within footwork. Producing from a young age and coming with an intentional conceptual angle, the music on 'Space Zone' carries all the hallmarks and framework of classic footwork -heavy bass and 160bpm rhythms- but with a lightness of touch and the conceptual abstraction of space themes. Where older producers reference space through typically sampling the spacey funk of the 70’s era to repetitive and aggressive effect, Young Smoke's music uses self-made samples from his arsenal of software synthesisers. The result has an aquatic atmosphere that engages the listener's imagination and hints at narratives behind the music. Also, rarely for footwork, he’s not afraid to inject his tracks with overt melodies.
Space Zone’s techno-like atmosphere of bleeps, effects and swirling chords and his melodic freshness is almost completely Davis' own creation. Whilst the sci-fi narratives strongly remind one of Drexciya’s pulse patterns and messages from the deep, the way tracks build rhythmically and melodically resonate strongly with early drum'n'bass."

Julien-K SDS Sessions V.1 Vinyl


"While we were in the EU on tour this summer, we started playing the remixed versions of some of our favorite songs LIVE. After about 15 shows, the song began to change and become something entirely different - almost a "Night Version" - or a completely new song based on the original. After many requests, we decided to record these new versions in Hamburg, at Clouds Hill Studios (thanks to our good friend Johann).
To give it a really live feel – to really capture what we were doing onstage – we decided to offer a very limited amount of tickets to our core group of fans. We thought this would give us a bit of the "nervousness" that comes with playing live, and would be a cool way to include and thank our SDS members.
We recorded the songs in a few takes, playing all the way through, with our SDS members in the room. Really fun. Recorded on vintage gear, straight to tape. Old school recording for a modern electro band. We really wanted to see if we could pull it off. Mistakes and all – we left everything in.

We decided to make this release a special VERY limited edition EP on vinyl, intended mainly for our core fans. The EP will of course come with a digital download code w purchase. We are mixing the record as I type, and we are looking forward to more experiments like this one – record and release within a matter of months, direct to our fans.

To make the EP extra special, we decided to record and include our fan favorite new song Dregs of the World, which has only been heard live thus far."
