Preview: Polymorphism #3.

26 Oct 2012 — Henning Lahmann
We do realise this is kinda last minute, but in case you're in Berlin right now and have no better plans for tonight (which is hardly possible, really), prepare to line up in the city's most notorious queue for the third edition of CTM's outstanding Polymorphism series, this time featuring performances by some of this year's truly defining artists. From 11pm, the magic of Berghain's sound system will serve as the appropriate setting for a night of adventurous, obscure electronics, featuring a delightful selection of representatives from Blackest Ever Black, Tri Angle, and Modern Love. Raime, oOoOO (once again featuring the lovely Butterclock), and Evian Christ are listed as headliners, but those who know us will be aware that it's Young Echo disciple Seb Gainsborough aka Vessel whose appearance excites us most, his recent Tri Angle debut Order of Noise very likely being our (read: my) favourite album of 2012 (I should probably add "so far", but really, no). Still, the huge hype around Evian Christ started by our cherished Charlie Jones on the last days of 2011 is largely justified as proven by Joshua Leary's convincing Kings and Them, and it should be interesting to see him showing his skills on stage. oOoOO so far has never disappointed us, especially when appearing in combination with Butterclock, and after seeing Raime managing to scare the crowd even at Incubate's smallest venue with the festival's most questionable sound setup in September, we are convinced that seeing them in Berghain's main room will be nothing short of breathtaking. The lineup is completed by none other than Demdike Stare's Miles Whittaker and Berlin-based DJ A Cell of One. What else can we say. This is surely not to be missed, so see you there.
