Subterranea is a music from under the ground: haunting, possessing, earthly, with the sound that has a body and a voice of its own.Darkness and primordial, underground spaces like caves, underground lakes and stone-laden paths is where Subteranea project finds its roots and inspiration.

Cold, wet reverberated vocals, damp and throbbing drum beats, reflective, aerial and hollow synths and distorted, earthly bass lay the foundation of the sound that you hear in your strangest dreams.

Qvveen VVitch is a project stemming from the heart of dark forests, shamanic visions, nightmares and cautionary tales.

ABOUT ATTRITION

 

ATTRITION are pioneers in a darker electronica. Formed in 1980 in Coventry, England, influenced by a mix of punk ideology and experimental art aesthetics, they emerged as part of the early ’80’s UK Industrial scene alongside contemporaries Coil, Test Department, Legendary Pink Dots, In The Nursery, Portion Control et al, Chris & Cosey, Cabaret Voltaire and more.

Attrition through a 35 year career, fuelled by a succession of critically acclaimed albums…a selling over 100,000 to date. The band has regularly toured Europe, North America and South America, Russia and Asia, appeared at major festivals and had their music included on a number of TV and film soundtracks….

Through their career Attrition have worked with musicians as diverse as psychedelic veterans The Legendary Pink Dot’s to punk legend TV Smith to Franck Dematteis of the Paris Opera.

Attrition’s music has featured on countless releases – from 1984’s “Bullshit detector 3” on Crass records to the hugely successful “Animal liberation” album alongside Siouxsie & the Banshees, The Smiths, Nina Hagen & Lene Lovich etc…

Their song “Acid Tongue” featured on KTEL’s Industrial story CD – a who’s who of industrial music with Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, Ministry, Nitzer Ebb, Neubauten et al…

In Germany Orkus magazine’s Best of the 90’s collection featured their darkwave classic “A girl called harmony”…

Martin’s increasing studio production work at his studio, The Cage, has included mixes for The Damage Manual (Martin Atkins, Jah Wobble, Geordie Walker, Chris Connelly et al…), Die Form, In the Nursery, Black tape for a Blue girl, Mona Mur/En Esch and mastering for countless bands and labels…

He contributes synths and vocals on a song on the last Pigface album, is the narrators voice on US horror series, “C for Chaos”, has written the score to US horror film G.H.O.S.T from Mutantville productions …

Their most recent album, Millions of the Mouthless Dead (inspired by Martin’s grandfathers experiences on the Western Front in 1917) includes collaborations with Anni Hogan (known for her work with Marc Almond through the 80’s) and the legendary Wolfgang Flur (ex-Kraftwerk)…

ATTRITION are currently working on an all new album for release later in 2017

“Attrition have always been a nexus of industrial fury, gothic drama, ambient structural finesse and classical chamber orchestrations. Stunning in scope, character and intellect, Martin Bowes has been a paragon of true creative prowess, holding in two hands the past and future of music, and smashing them together with a calculated and charismatic menace. Bowes builds his dark industrial music with all the compassion and attention to detail of a classical musician…”

ABOUT QUADRAPHONIX

Quadraphonix believe that music from all around the world is inter-related as people and cultures are. A band that specializes in improvisational music that takes form as they play it live, their music is based on the theory of free form jazz, which is freedom of

musical expression. Within this expression, they showcase cultural music from their live experiences and their ancestry. Fusing Indian, Malaysian, Middle Eastern and Latin music with Western styles of Jazz, Blues and Funk is what they do best.

Quadraphonix has opened up for Grammy winners and nominees such as Black Eyed Peas and the Salsa Funksters, Ozomatli and Japanese Punk Ska group Kemuri at Club Chitta in Japan.

They have shared the stage with virtuosos such as Ukulele sensations Jake Shimabukuro and Taimane Gardner. In 2014, Quadraphonix joined forces with singer/song writer and poet, Iyeoka. This collaboration has taken them all over Europe and Asia. In the summer of 2014, Quadraphonix opened shows in Europe for artist such as Robert Plant and Blues Brothers for audiences up 20 thousand. They just returned from their Europe tour.

Inspired by the mid-90’s Bay Area hip hop sounds which often featured live instrumentation; he began to teach himself to play bass, guitar and keyboard. The bass quickly became his main instrument due to a natural affinity for creating baselines.

This lead to him becoming engrossed in funk and reggae, and he began playing shows around the San Francisco Bay Area.

It was a time when dress codes were strictly enforced.  It was Studio 54, Andy Warhol, Copacabana.. It was evolutionary, it was revolutionary ! It was the age of disco and this time period that made night clubs a venue and a place to be seen on the dance floor, when couples actually matched their outfits, where slow dancing was possible and appreciated. The music and the lyrics reflected the passion on the dance floor and the people who engaged in such an artistic time of dance culture.

Do It Till You’re Satisfied is back starting Wednesday, April 15, 2015 beginning at 6pm at Jazz Minds featuring the best in DANCE PARTY MUSIC, DISCO, 80s, DEEP FUNK, FUNKY GROOVES, VINTAGE SOUL, R&B AND VINYL SELECTIONS TAKING YOU BACK….

There will be drinks specials and Pupus all night long and some of the best DJs sure to shake your booty !
