Soft Riot is JJD; a former Vancouverite now residing in the UK who has clocked in around twenty years of musical output in various bands and projects, including half a dozen art-damaged punk and hardcore bands as well as first-wave post-punk revivalists Radio Berlin. Moving from Vancouver to London UK in the late 2000s, Soft Riot came into full being, having released a couple of acclaimed albums and EPs and staging numerous tours around Europe.
Soft Riot’s sound is an amalgamation of JJD’s personal experience with music, containing elements of synthesiser-based film soundtracks, romantic italo-style flourishes, throbbing arpeggiations and angular, psychedelic synth-pop all tied together with an underlying tension. It is a science-fiction heavy soundscape that narrates the listener through today’s fractured, excessive landscape with hints of black humour. When playing live JJD mans no less than three synthesizers, a microphone, an on-stage mixer, and a variety of outboard effects.
The Munich musician GrGr, who has been active since 2012, can still be traded as an insider tip, even though his synth-wave-punk 8bit-explosion impresses and rousing live shows. A man and his synth can be more punk than some guitar/bass/drums band. In May the new album “So Viel Zeit” was released, which GrGr will present this evening.
Angelic Sintesis is a DJ, Composer & Performer. her dedication to Dark and Esoteric is represented in such projects as Leather Ladder and Banehavoc. Angelic Sintesis will bring a delightful mix of Obscure Electronics/Minimal-Synth /Weird Wave/Post-Punk/ to the evening for your listening pleasure.
