Year 2017 – ‘Superlative Fatigue’ by Errorsmith is on most credible album-of-the-year lists and winning some. Its details penetrate ears as if soaked in an ocean of Vaseline. Its well-stretched fit af rhythms land on planet Earth as a surprise maybe because last time Errorsmith released an album, the year was 2004.
Year 2018 – Drugstore, once again in unity with Dis-patch/ plusplusplusinitiative and Goethe-Institut Belgrad, brings you another exciting rendition of the current German electronic realm. DEviate event will present one of the rare Berlin “heads” who is walking the cutting-egde and pushing the limits of the dance floor and sonic landscapes for almost two decades.
errorsmith (PAN, MMM, Smith N Hack / Berlin)
Berlin’s Errorsmith has been a respected figure in Germany’s club scene since the mid ‘90s. Through his own releases and his collaborations as part of MMM (with Berghain resident Fiedel) and Smith N Hack (with Soundstream/Soundhack), Errorsmith plays with the boundaries of dance music genres for an openness leading to new rhythmic and sonic shapes.
Rooted in the club, his music is crafted with an ear for experimentalism, making for some deliciously intriguing physicality. Renowned for his popular synthesizer plug-in Razor, developed for Native Instruments, his self-built software instruments form the basis of both his productions and live sets. His collaborative 12” with Mark Fell on the PAN label was a popular release in 2015, listed in many end of year charts, e.g. in the Wire magazine and FACT mag. A new live set deputed at Unsound festival 2016, which was one of the „Five key performances“ for Resident Advisor. Some 20 years into his career, 2017 saw the release of the long awaited ‘Superlative Fatigue’ album on PAN. The result were raving reviews and a fresh take on his recognizably sharp sound design, that transcends dancehall rhythms and some much needed cynicism in the nerdy and competitive world of our electronic music planet.
Local support will be provided by a weird combination of supreme local live and DJ acts, featuring the premiere live show in relation to the brand new Jan Nemeček album:
