𝗚𝗼𝗹𝗶𝗻 (JP/US) https://soundcloud.com/5_lin Golin is a Japanese - American artist, singer, producer, classically-trained pianist and performance artist born in Tagawa, Japan. Passionate and oddly baroque in its digital zeitgeist, Golin’s work blurs the lines between mainstream pop and experimental electronic music. Her approach is informed by a unique perspective on the way music can mediate contemporary experience of cultural and physical displacement.
She first appeared in 2016 as Rin, featuring on Ziúr's track "Lilith". Her debut as Golin – the entirely self-produced debut EP Momo (Midlife Music) inspired by a Japanese folktale – came the next year in 2017, followed in 2018 by Fushigi, a collaborative EP with producer Buga, courtesy of Shanghai's Genome 6.66 Mbp label. Following a two-year residency at Brussels' favorite cultural house Beursschouwburg and a year as part of the European SHAPE network's platform, the CalArts-trained dancer released her most recent solo EP Crush via True Panther’s Twin imprint in October 2020.
𝗕𝗼𝗟𝘀/𝘀𝗟𝗼𝗕 (CZ/DE) https://soundcloud.com/bols-slob Talented and venturesome producer affirmed as one of the rising young talents in the European avant pop scene. Inspired by (post)club scene, pop, industrial and PC music and influenced by artists like Iglooghost, SOPHIE, Death grips, Sega Bodega etc. Sonic storytelling of BoLs/sLoB merges intoxicatingly catchy tunes and uncompromising club sound design. He engages the entire sound palette and energetically alternates genres, rhythms while combining rap and vocal effects. Assembling shards of trap, glitch, ambient and harder sounds BoLs/sLob creates a very authentic mosaic of personal statements.
He released his debut album Esoteric Garden (2023) on Berlin's progressive club music label SoulFeeder. In this intimate yet accessible body of work, Bols/Slob turns the very act of writing music and shaping sounds into a safe space for him to reminisce and reflect on his past experiences. Each track of “Esoteric Garden” is in fact connected to a specific memory of Bols/Slob. And while he moves through these different moments of his life, the listener is invited to walk alongside him through this fluid, shapeshifting sonic space, changing track after track.
Event is supported by KSK crew DJs 𝗠𝗮𝗿𝘁𝘆𝘆𝗻𝗮 & 𝗟𝗼𝗿𝗼𝗸 (CZ) Martyyna is a Fuchs2 club resident DJ, KSK co-founder and producer debuting w. EP Awaken (BCAA System, 2020). Together with Igor Lorok - DJ, 3D and visual artist - they have recently come up with an AV LIVE show for her upcoming album 'Written in the Scars' premiered at Prague Lunchmeat Festival 2023.
𝗞𝗦𝗞 Never alone on the dancefloor! KSK is a Prague-based collective of friends organizing audiovisual atmospheric events focused on contemporary experimental club music and related genres. The stable creative core of the KSK crew consists of Martyyna, Igor and Katerina who aim to discover new talents and present already well-known high-quality music projects, light and stage designers. KSK brought e.g. Endgame, Know V.A., Mechatok, 111X, Idklang, In My Talons, Gil, Jackie (YantanMinistry), Dinamarca, Soda Plains, Ytem and others to Prague and also did several collab events with related platforms - e.g. Unizone, BCAA system, Gin&Platonic, Lunchmeat Neone, Whiskas, Glory Affairs, etc.
The name is an acronym of the phrase "každej s každym / everyone with everyone". A spontaneous joke addressing the mood and diverse nature of the parties defines the deeper philosophy of KSK: openness & inclusivity, connecting local and foreign scene, matching musicians with visual artists and erasing the boundaries both between headliners and supporting artists and the performers and audience.
