His sets include everything from uplifting pop classics and 90’s rave anthems to the filthiest house, garage, grime and dubstep tracks, creating huge dance floor reactions that earned him a residency at Hold Tight in London.

Artist Exposed: Deutsch Nepal

Deutsch Nepal will play Sunday 20 September.

Being the boss of your own label must be great. You get to release only the stuff you like. Just as we program the bands we like. This is your chance to see if the founder of the famous Cold Meat Industry label can create some good music himself. We can tell you right now: Deutsch Nepal makes ambient industrial of the highest quality, like Raison D’Etre and In Slaughter Natives. Deep, disturbing and dark.

You can throw your sunglasses away, after this performance you will see the world a couple of shades darker.

Deutsch Nepal is on tour with Der Blutharsch and Bain Wolfkind. ZXZW 2009 artists Aluk Todolo help organize the show for this tour in Paris.

Meeting contemporary composed music in a place that is nothing like the average high-brow concert hall. That is what Kraaklink is about. Having a beer in a relaxing atmosphere while listening to interesting music made by musicians under 35y whose innovative music is constructed by young composers (below 40 years of age). This makes it one of the most interesting programs of ZXZW, aiming to bring contemporary composed music to those who would want to see it: a relaxed and interested audience.

Aluk Todolo will play Sunday 20 September.

Experimental black metal influenced by people such as Hermann Nitsch and Albin Julius (Der Blutharsch). With the goal to create a timeless, organic mix of krautrock’s strangeness and black metal’s coldness, Aluk Todolo conjures rabid obsessive rhythms and abyssal disharmonic guitars. Subliminal spiritualist vibrations and bizarre, magick summonings. Very dark. Very scary. Very nice.

We saw them last weekend at the amazing Worm venue in Rotterdam. We got a lot of blackdronenoise and were very happy they handed out earplugs.

Manatees will play Sunday 20 September.

Darkness. Thick layers of filthy blackness. Escape is not an option. Covered by the slime that is actually dripping from the sound. It’s filling the room that seems to get smaller and smaller. The speakers cry by the sheer volume. Hypnotizing rhythms providing the groundwork for the dissonant screeching guitars and the vocals that come from deep within. Those places would be better left covered. Nothing left to do but to stand, watch and be carried away by the waves of these Manatees.

An Emerald City will play Sunday 20 September.

Emerald is a green and not very hard stone. Not the preferred material when you want to build a city, you would think. Nevertheless are there at least ten cities on the globe that have Emerald City as a nickname. Maybe it has something to do with other qualities this gem possesses: it is beautiful and mysterious.
