:: abstrakt ::

No strangers to the sometimes uncomfortable but ultimately rewarding world of musical experimentation & risk taking, the new experimental offshoot of projekt, abstrakt has emerged, spearheaded by the eclectic purveyor, Screendoor. Having arisen from 1990's party culture, the abstrakt collective appreciate the necessity both of abrasive tastemaking & mass appeal through the mediums of DJ'ing and live performance, and throughout their years have made it their mission to seamlessly combine these two approaches to create unique one-of-a-kind events. With this philosophy, the collective answers the call to ritual gathering once more. Expect a party, a good time, an experience, but most importantly, refuse to expect anything. Spontaneity will be the sole guideline of this event.

ALWAYS FORWARD.

projektmke.com
presents abstrakt 2.0

An evening of eclectic electronic music spanning ambient, psychedelic, minimal, house, techno, dubstep and beyond

featuring:



JEFF PIETRO + KARL MEIER
[Chicago] | [UNLTD] | Vermilion | Borrowed Language | Sandwell District

A serendipitous encounter some years ago brought fellow techno enthusiasts Jeff Pietro and Karl Meier together; as did a shared interest in the avant-garde and all things subversive. Their dj sets (opening for the likes of Jeff Mills, Surgeon, 2562, Kode 9 and Convextion) look to the future while being influenced by the music of the past, focusing on dynamism and recontextualization, while their productions highlight a willingness to eschew genre conventions in favor of stressing arrangements and forward-thinking sound design. Karl has released on the techno connoisseur label Sandwell District while Jeff continues to work on textural music on Vermilion and post-dubstep experiments on the Borrowed Language label.

Jeff and Karl will be performing a special Ableton DJ set together and individual sets.

DJ ANONYMOUS
[Madison] Addict | Anonymous

The Madison underground legend, Josh Anonymous makes his first milwaukee appearance in quite some time. With releases on Addict Records and his own imprint Anonymous, past performances as Have a Few, Get Some, live drumming alongside Doormouse and in various bands such as Poncho Nightmare, Josh is a musician first and foremost, but my god is he one hell of a dj too. He cuts, scratches, blends, fades, mixes and destroys any and all dancefloors in a myriad of styles from funk, house and booty to jungle and hardcore. Welcome back to Milwaukee, Mr. Jenquin.


DESTRO
Zod Records

Sam Derickson is the original zod mastermind and an impeccable dj who incorporates a keen sense of composition along with tight mixing skills to create a seamless sonic tapestry. He started off spinning experimental minded techno and acid, and after working tirelessly, has created a style that blends all types of bass music,regardless of style or genre - a purveyor / preserver of the underground, if you will, a sort of art-historian of the electronic underground music scene.


CHARLIE CHALICE *LIVE*
AKA ELTRONIX | Chalice in the Palace Soundsystem | myspace.com/eltonlawson

Due to an unfortunate scheduling conflict J TODD will be unavailable to play this premiere edition of ABSTRAKT.
