Win : Mort à la Différence : Light Asylum in Berlin

05:23 PM

Events that are programmatically linked to whole utopias are seldom. Leave out the ones aiming on a society with a 24/7 happy party concept or the fully digitally connected mankind and the picture looks even sadder. The highly recommendable Berlin-based blog Expatriarch is now willing to fill the gap, bringing their own manifesto to life outside the online world with new party Mort À La Différence on this Saturday at Chez Jacki. Here well-selected bands and DJs will pursue your preparation for a post-paternalistic world, which has abandoned the idea of a pre-set gender binary – and surely make you dance.

The night’s main act will be the Brooklyn duo Light Asylum (photo), formed by the breathtaking singer Shannon Funchess and her counterpart Bruno Coviello. The music (a highly concentrated dark synthwave) serves as medium for a suppressed creativity and sexuality. And appropriately intense are their gigs, while in their look SM and neon optics melt with sacral imageries. The debut EP In Your Tension was first self-released by them in 2010 and just recently got reissued by Mexican Summer. International institutions as Cold Wave praise Light Asylum, SALEM made a remix and since 2010 Funchess is a permanent part of !!! (chk-chk-chk), while also working with Teengirl Fantasy, Telepathe and TV on the Radio.

The the line-up continues with the girls of Kool Thing, who just recently amazed us with their minimalistic rock as Austra‘s support act at Berghain. At the DJ decks you’ll find Nikolaj Tange Lange and Jemek Jemowit. Joey Hansom, the night’s host and head of Expatriarch, will make even two appearances: first with his new band G-DMOTHER, then also as a DJ. You can listen to a radio mix he made for the event here.
