SUBTLE 44 - JOURNEY TO PLUTO
let's rave again to experimental, psychedelic sounds and crazy lights... what started in 2019 with a more than 50 hours non stop festival.... is now running hot again. the rocket starts on saturday october 28th at the legendary irish fire ship "gannet" in basel, there we will dance to techno, house, minimal & disco punk!
a festival for all senses, a festival that crosses borders, breaks through invisible walls, because who wants them, the borders... we want free living spaces, as free as the sound, as free as the light, that is the subtle 44.
DIRTY SLIPS // LIVE BAND
dirty slips ignite the volcano, the festival can begin, danceable melodies glitter in disco dress, multilingual lyrics, invented languages. against the norm à la nina hagen, dirty slips break gen-der and genre boundaries with socially critical lyrics. this is intergalactic disco punk par excellence!
PLAYMOB.IL // LIVE ACT
the spaceship floats on an eccentric track, rudi tobler aka. playmob.il our cosmonaut, he controls his nostalgic equipment with joystick, throttle and all kinds of flashing buttons. he discards his voice in the digital shredder and blows it into the universe. a sound tinkerer, a genius, he will make us dance noisily until our ears wobble... playmob.il also tinkers for big zis, ikan hyu and others and we can't wait until we go through the ceiling with him at subtle 44.
KATHARINA KABEL // LIVE ACT
was born in vienna, was one of the founders of the austrian lesbian liberation front (allf) in the 80s and spent 12 years in prison for assault. she studied electroacoustics by correspondence and then moved to zurich, released her first album "still films" on the label lalamusik. the magazine sups wrote "oscillating between madness, insanity, consequence and nonsense, analog, musical gobbledygook for crazy people." several (record)-cooperations with hans blings, stephanie simsle, manfred stecker and pilocka krach followed.
JOGHURT BAMBAATA // DJ SET
writes stories under enormous sacrifices, plays sitting without headphones and blasts us a soulful repertoire around the ears, it makes even beach-fast after hour raver/inside dizzy.
BAMBI DE LUXE // DJ SET
bambi de luxe from geneva has been moving in the underground scene of electronic music for several decades. from zurich to dresden to "la habana " she blasts us a mélange of electro and techno on the dancefloor, this with a lot of rock n' roll attitude. at the beginning of the 2000s she livened up the squatted club rüdigerstrasse with her parties and dj sets, later she was part of les belles de nuit. for us love at first sight, that is certainly not innocent.... for it real and free.
VAN NUTT // LIGHT ART
psychedelic illuminations create breathtakingly insane light art. light art installation with vintage slide projectors, our spaceship, the Gannet will shine in insane colors.
Stay live! We keep you posted!
