DÆMON uses lyricism as a means to express a full spectrum of emotions, abstract ideas, and social commentary. DÆMON draws from his personal experience for inspiration in a dissociative, non-committal manner, illustrating vivid imagery through story telling and an array of literary devices.
YANTAN MINISTRY live
Yantan Ministry is an experimental composer, live musician and DJ. Recognisable by their mercuriality and eclectic movements, their work permeates a keen interest in ambiguity, obfuscation and the emotional body; an ever present suggestion of their inclinations being motivated by stepping outside the frame to highlight a riddle, to create feelingly and work within mythical space.
Their debut EP, Radio Unnameable, was released in 2020 on Berlin based experimental label Yegorka, followed by Flagrant Hours in 2021 on the same, with duo Kittisol.
Meandering between club spheres, experimental production, and a penchant for toying with song, audio processing and traditional instrumentation, they have broadcast their diverse affinities in meticulous mixes on a number of radio shows and platforms. Notable mentions are Endgame’s NTS Precious Metals show, Kelman Duran’s Edits mix series on NTS, and most recently their Tail On mix for AQNB and Motley Curio mix for YEAR0001’s SOUNDS mix series.
Europa is a moniker of a German-born but World-souled artist and musician Moritz Haas who is melting tender melodies with angry beats and diverse cultural and linguistic references, transporting the listener to surprisingly vivid musical and political landscapes. Echoing our broken cultures torn into sharp yet fragile pieces, his music scatters samples across multiple layers and merges them into new constellations of united yet eclectic harmonies hitting you to the very core.
Hunt is a musician and sound designer based in Vienna. He founded Amen Records in 2016, a label that is exploring the boundaries of electronic music genres, at which he kicked off his own musical career with his debut EP ‘Inalienable Lights of White Tomorrows’. While his first records reflect an experimentation with the energy of heavier percussion and distored guitars, his debut album ‘We Meet In Reverie’, released at Unseelie, is an emotional deep dive through a sea of ethereal synth pads.

DJ HAUSWEIN dj-set
DJ Hauswein is Zahra Khan, an Irish/Pakistani artist and DJ based in Vienna. She’s the promoter of the Common Contact events in Vienna and NYC, Vice-Chairwoman and co-curator at Echo Correspondence in Vienna and founding member of the I’ve Got My Period collective. Musically, her roots are in hip hop culture, but she has become a frontrunner for discovering and supporting current and emerging club genres as the years have gone by. Hauswein avidly follows the evolution of and movements within these forms on virtual platforms as well as at performance locations where the true action happens. When she steps up you can expect chaos – boundary-pushing, hip-thrusting, smut-spitting sounds to no end and plenty of surprises.
A frenzy of subjective impulses for ecstatic means.,.,.,;;.,.:,,,,.. rumbles, distortions, and rhythms created and played out of dark spaces which others would describe as underground,;;,,,,,;;;;;,;#+,,.,.,&;.,.., an appreciation for that which is shunned by many, its expression which can be policed by none and is made for everybody.
Gauna. Halunke. Fiesling. Ganove. Whatever you wanna call them, it’s always gonna be filthy, hard, dark, at times you’re even gonna ask yourself: how can a DJ be so condescending? but be warned: instead of looking down on you, they creep in the underground, rising from below when they get called for action with heavy punches right in the soft spot of your nasty sweaty raver crotch
