Kaspars Kalnins is one of the most influential characters in the Latvian electronic noiz movement. His last appearance in Finland was in Lumous 2014, where he performed a highly praised show with his group Autogen. He is also known from Rosewater and is behind most of the live industrial events in Riga. This time he performs solo under the moniker NARKOSE, and we can prepare for a visual show of electroiz with special guest star sharing the stage.
THINNER (LIVE, Latvia, rhythmic noise)
THINNER (Sturm) is a pulsing elektroise charge of grinding beats, caustic tunes and noxious verbal messages. Heeding senseless acquiescing to throes for "greater good" - a job that gets on your nerves and wastes your life, relationships with people you are "forced" to have, reconciliation with removable evils - hazards we all submit to.This is the 2nd time Thinner performs in Finland.
NAV SAULES (LIVE, Latvia, EBM:industrial:HC)
NAV SAULES (Sturm), "No sun" in Latvian, is straight-forward hard techno-industrial project made to make you sweat. 1st time in Finland, he is a rare treat so please do welcome him by dancing your ass off. Here's a live video from 2013 to prove it's worth it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwmIWSIruyg
TANK:JANK (LIVE, Latvia, ritual industrial)
TANK:JANK (Sturm), also known as Veerot, Tankist & Tas Tur Nelabais (Latvian perkele), is known from his extreme performances which often include self-inflicted pain and wounds. One of his performances sparked a national outrage in Latvia, as he was crucified with nails to a wooden cross and the yellow press made the most out of it. Time will tell what happens in Tampere, but this show is not for the children or for the weak of heart. This is his 1st performance in Finland.
MACHINATRIX (LIVE, Tampere, downtempo:triphop)
MACHINATRIX (formerly known as Machine Dominatrix), the solo act of Maria Helena, was born somewhere around 2003. It's about making her feelings and thoughts audible and presentable in a way that others can relate to them. It's her safety valve. She's no genre purist, and only makes music that interprets her emotions best at the moment. Usually it ends up being moody downtempo / triphop / alternative pop.
