FESTIVAL FOR CLUB CULTURE – VIENNA 20. – 21. MAY 2022
FLOOR 2/ CLUB
The fact that Lan Rex is released on the Tender Matter label, Vienna’s one-stop shop for gender-nonconforming DIY music, comes as little surprise. Run by Tony Wagner and Melissa Antunes de Menezes, the label reconciles the futuristic, genre-pulverizing pop music of acts like Hyeji Nam and co-founder Tony Renaissance with the fearless vocal improvisations of Karo Preuschl and the chaotic breakbeat patterns of Lamb Kebab. A label as a safe space and dreamreality between experimentation and accessibility.
Afterwards the manic turntablist Sam Rolfes alias DJ Fuck mixes breakcore, hardstyle, hyperp*p and assorted meme music into a breakneck amalgam.
In addition, Meuko! Meuko! returns to Hyperreality. In 2018, the Taiwanese producer and singer made her first major AV appearance in Europe as part of the festival; a memorable evening that the artist herself to this day describes as a key moment in her career. The musician is currently working on a new album for the British cult label Planet Mu, first samples from which should be a certainty during her live set at Hyperreality. This is a set that is emblematic of a networked dance underground that knows no boundaries between continents and genres.
On the “Club” floor, French DJ Aamourocean combines Gabber, Hardstyle and Hardcore under the keyword “New Dream” into romantic, demanding beat thunderstorms, before Viennese local hero DJ Jackhammer fka Frau Chef from the “Hardcore/Millenium/Terror collective” Busy Action hands out a very last lesson in speed and uncompromisingness. “Music with more muscle” is the motto on their Soundcloud page. What this translates into in practice is already apparent within the first couple of minutes of their daredevil gabber sets.
