    To conclude their SANCTA production series in Vienna, Florentina Holzinger and her team are issuing an invitation to the confessional with spectacular MCs: inspired by the power of female, artistic prowess and unique experimental vibes, Heike Suerman as DJ Femalemacho has been blending bass, house, dark amapiano and reggaeton since 1998. Producer, sound designer and DJ Neven provides a roller-coaster ride of bass, hip hop, RnB and hybrid-experimental electronic sounds. Live piano will feature in the set by Otay:onii, a multi-faceted artist from Haining (China) who believes in echoes and in ‘solving one riddle with another riddle that cannot be seen, cannot be touched, but can be felt.’ Born in Flamez subverts gender and genre with a multitude of influences that are situated somewhere between deconstructed pop, club sounds, lo-fi, grime and classical music. The performances by Cuban-American artist Lamb fluctuate between elements of bass, noise and grime. And Vienna-based DJ Terror takes us through a wide array of sounds from techno via jungle to pop, full of references from various eras of electronic music.

  • 25 May, from 10pm MERGING TECHNO AND HERITAGE | HOSTED BY SEBA KAYAN Seba Kayan, Sakina Teyna, DJ Diamond, DJ Malenciaga

    Viennese artist and DJ Seba Kayan has invited singer Sakina Teyna, DJ Diamond and DJ Malenciaga to dedicate an evening at the Club entirely to merging Western and ‘Oriental’ sounds. Influenced by her own Kurdish musical heritage, she questions the Eurocentric parameters of electronic music and sketches out an oriental-futurist version of techno and acid. Sakina Teyna’s voice will accompany her on the night. Born into a Kurdish Alevi family in the Turkish town of Varto, Sakina Teyna did not encounter Kurdish music until she was a student. She has been making music in various constellations in Vienna since 2006, mixing traditional music with modern formats. The evening will be opened by dancer, poet and DJ Malika Fankha. As DJ Malenciaga, she develops an apocalyptic giddiness of live vocals over crisp beats and glitchy soundscapes, protest songs and rave feasts. DJ Diamond pledges hardtrance to nightcore, hardcore to gabber and will bring us to the end of this party night propelled by the pace and brimming with energy and fun.
