15 July: Ashida Park w/ccontrary

Ashida Park is a label based in Vienna and is run by Antonia XM & Amblio. Over the last 3 years, the label’s releases have reached an international audience and are firmly rooted within a global and inclusive club music movement. The artists who are collaborating with Ashida Park are not united by one single genre, rather by expressing their different views on current club music and its congeneric equivalents. Ashida Park label nights serve to create a space for intimacy & excess for its attendees as well as performers. A combination of dark rhythms combined with hyperemotional synths and occasional pop culture references shape those nights musically.

The special guest for this year’s cooperation with ImPulsTanz Festival will be the 20-year-old Moscow based producer ccontrary who released her debut EP in March for the renowned TAR records from Los Angeles. In June she contributed to the most recent release on Ashida Park with a remix for Le Makeup, an emerging Japanese musician. On July 15th ccontrary will make a stop in Vienna while on EU-tour and perform a DJ set alongside ANTONIA XM & Amblio.

17 July: Live´n´Local feat. FARCE live // Ana Power

hosted by 

Taking Pop out of the hands of faceless producers in obscure studios around the world and into her bedroom studio, FARCE is playing her way towards becoming one of the most fascinating auteurs in contemporary electronic music. Almost two years after a critically acclaimed EP with an impossible name (Ich sehe im vorbeifahrenden Auto den Unfall mitvorbeifahren in Zeitlupe und rueckwaerts, Meta Matter, 2017) FARCE releases her more aptly titled, much anticipated debut album. HEAVY LISTENING shamelessly requests the listener's full attention as only very few pop records can. Never losing that certain nag for a catchy riff or line, the record finds Veronika J. Koenig (writing and producing in her Viennese bedroom under the moniker FARCE) in much more tangible spheres than on her first EP. Designed as a conceptual journey from start to finish, it declares war on the much discussed death of the album and shows just how far a full, intentional body of work can go. Influenced by and compared to the likes of acts like St. Vincent, Charli XCX or LCD Soundsystem, FARCE continues to produce an intoxicating mixture of off-kilter, experimental ideas and theatrical, highly polished Pop. 

Ana Power's cross genre Djsets do not tell you shit, if it's about danceable music and night entertainment. From chansons to DiscoBoogieWorldBeatFunk, from Rudolfsheim over the 80th floor straightway to Groove Ville. That fits! Ps: Schlager included.

24 July: Live´n´Local feat. Nødstop live // Testa & Worst Messiah

Leading lights of the Austrian hip hop and electronica scenes, The Unused Word (Anna Schauberger) and Testa (Lukas Ljubanovic), have joined forces as Nødstop. The duo are releasing their debut seven track EP “Ø” in April 2019. With nods to Portishead and hints of Laurie Anderson, “Ø” is a moody, electronic journey graced by Schauberger’s distinctive vocals, Testa’s stylish turntablism, hip hop inspired beats and a cool Scandinavian aesthetic. The captivating soundscape lures the listener in before confronting us with hard hitting lyrics that tackle big themes from the environment to domestic violence, echoing the continuous sense of unease that is the backdrop to contemporary life. This interplay between the music and the lyrics is echoed in the name Nødstop, which is Danish for “emergency brakes”. Indulging in some multilingual wordplay, Schauberger explains, “You can nod your heads to our hip hop-influenced beats, but if you start listening to the words, you might stop because I do worry about things like climate change, homelessness or violence against women in my lyrics”.

Worst Messiah (anagram of Thomas Wisser), rapper, DJ and more. Underground rap, beats and obscure finds, lots of vinyl.

28 July: H∆NN∆ & B.Visible

With a sure instinct on the turntables for beats, bass and related genres, the Viennese HΔNNΔ convinces with diverse mixes, contagious energy and euphoria. The style of her sets - whether alone or together with her DJ partner Dizzy Dee - can best be described as Hip Hop paired with futuristic beats, bass and eclecticism.

Viennese producer B.Visible is always pushing his craft forward with each concept being an evolution. His music is mutating organically as each project brings novelty but always while blending sharp electronic components with dusty acoustic layers. That duality exists in every aspect of his creative journey with DJ sets revolving around second-hand records and modern-day productions but also his live project offering a whole new dimension and generosity to the audience. B.Visible melts the barrier between analog and digital in a such distinctive and elegant way that it feels natural.

29 July: Affine im Sommer feat. Wandl & The Clonious

hosted by 

22-year-old Vienna-resident Wandl developed into one of the most progressive and interesting european producers in recent years. His longplay-debut „It's All Good Tho“ brings his take on melodic vocals and experimental, bass driven instrumentals to the fore. His EPs "Milk", "Soon" and his Affine-debut „Far Way Home“ stretch out his personal vision of brainfeeder-nerdism and state of the art bedroom-soul. On "It's All Good Tho" he plays almost all the instruments, channels his vocals through machines, alienates and exposes them – and he's not shy of monumental hooks.

Imagine running into The Clonious, that dude equipped with hundred headphones which directly interact with his musical epicentre. He elegantly puts together the apparent inconsiderable and the clearly essential elements, subsequently he breaks –music- into rhythm + harmonies to reach a point at which it is incontrovertible to discuss the perception that jazz is the mother of it all.

31 July: Live´n´Local feat. Synesthetic 4 live // The ZEES

The band Synesthetic 4 developed out of the the Austrian Ensemble Synesthetic Octet founded and lead by Vincnet Pongrácz. In 2016 Peter Rom, the Octet's guitar player and Pongrácz decided to work on a quartet version of 8 piece band. After a few concerts in Austria and Germany it was clear though that it would not be lastingly satisfying to just adapt the Octet's music for the smaller band, so Pongrácz and Rom started an intensiv collaboration out of wich the current programme grew and wich allowed them to play at some renowed venues and festivals like the Jazzwerkstatt Bern and the Saalfelden Jazz Festival after just a year of the bands existence. In the fall of 2018 they started a residency at the Club Rhiz in Vienna with the title Synesthetic Wednesday where the band presents a new programme every month with various local and international guests. The First CD of the Quartet will be released in the fall of 2019.

The legendary DJ ZUZEE (Waxolutionists) welcomes his wife, originally a dancer, behind the turntables. DJing together as the „THE ZEES“, they prove with their unique sound that the combination of music and dance is not only the secret ingredient of a happy marriage, but also for party nights to remember. They play everything that falls under the category “funky” and varies, depending on the ingredients (Hip Hop, Soul, Funk, Disco, House, etc.) – in any case, it tastes delicious!

03 August: Affine im Sommer feat. Zanshin & Sam Irl (Freerange / Jazz & Milk) hosted by Metropole

hosted by  

Zanshin is a musician, sound artist and producer of electronic music from Vienna, Austria.
The name "Zanshin" is a concept from Japanese martial arts and translates roughly as "omnidirectional attention", reflecting his many inspirations and interests - correspondingly he tries to channel his ideas mostly into three creative outlets: As Zanshin he releases music on Affine Records and disko404 and his tracks and remixes are covering a broad range from driving, polyrhythmic dancefloor affairs to experimental beatless sonic structures, sometimes massive, sometimes fragile. Zanshin appears on stage either as a live act, arranging his tracks live and providing an inspiring, challenging and powerful experience. Or as a DJ, where he simply likes to provide great music to dance to, playing modern techno/bass music and/or house music with a funk and jazz vibe. Together with his friend Daniel Kohlmeigner he releases music under the name "Ogris Debris". Their trademark sound is a mixture of vocal hooklines and inventive and vigorous house music with which they are aiming to entertain audiences with their energetic live shows.

Growing up in a small village in rural Lower Bavaria, Sam Irl learned to play the piano at an early age, later moving on to jazz, first attempts at music production and DJ-ing. The lack of an existing underground music scene in his home town provided him and his friends with a healthy need and rooted foundation to organize their own regular parties, playing eclectic music ranging from roots reggae, hip hop, broken beat to house. Since moving to Vienna over a decade ago and completing his degree at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Sam has been working as producer, DJ and sound engineer in the vibrant Viennese music scene. This diverse musical background and lots of record digging is a strong influence on his productions, blending sample-based MPC grooves, jazz harmonies, analogue synthesizers and dub elements.
