Preview: CTM Musicmakers Showcase with Solar Year

31 Jan 2013 — Tonje Thilesen

So well, we're closing up to the finest line-up of CTM this weekend, except for yesterday's excellent showcase curated by PAN Records, and obviously tonight, with our San Francisco-based crush Holly Herndon, playing Berghain Panorama Bar alongside Kuedo, d'Eon and Forest Swords. Tomorrow stands yet another impeccable line-up before our eyes and ears, and we're personally starting the night over at the Musicmakers Showcase at Berghain Kantine, curated by Berlin locals Peter Kirn of Create Digital Media and Cassette BLN, and led by Travis Stweart, better known as Machinedrum.

We're obviously very excited to have our own Montreal duo Solar Year on the roster too, who recently released a 7" on our new imprint Stratosfear. A handful very exciting names will also join the full line-up, amogst them the genius Tim Exile,  audiovisual composer Tarik Barri and Science Fiction Children, as well as live music sessions with Laurel Halo, Sam Barker, Easton West and more. Machinedrum, XI, Kode9 and Lando Kal will make sure to keep the beat going after 02:30, just in case you feel like having a break from the intense dancefloor at Berghain Panorama Bar nextdoor. 

We're also very excited to announce the first European tour with Solar Year, dates below.
