KRAKE OPENING @ Passionskirche
MURCOF — live
THOMAS KÖNER — live
BERSARIN QUARTETT — live
FLOEX — live
We start off the festival with a massive line up of the finest in ambient and electronica, presented in one of the most beautiful locations in Berlin, the Passionskirche, an old church in the center of the city.
MURCOF is a very modern composer, who utilizes technology to make epic, moving suites of music with a spiritual undertow. He draws on minimalism, post modernism and baroque music to create music that moves the mind and heart. The shows of this south american artist are rare, and we are particularly proud to have him on board this year. Pioneering multi media artist THOMAS KÖNER is the second headliner of this evening, another special feature we are proud to present.
open doors: 19:00

At the Berghain Kantine, the origianl home to all Killekill events we collaborate with STROBOSCOPIC ARTEFACTS, one of the most prolific contemporary techno labels, to present STELLATE, a series of 10“es, they release, with a strong focus on the dark and experimental side of electronic music.
Packed with a line up of highest quality, this night will be the way you know this almost legendary label: explorative, forward-looking, mind-blowing.
Additional a lecture (in german only) is going to take place before:
Im Rahmen des 3. Krake-Festivals melden sich nun auch die Berliner Autoren zu Wort. Schonungslos widmen sie sich dem Phänomen Feiern, beleuchten die Sehnsüchte des viel zu oft missverstandenen Berliner Druffis und loten die Untiefen der menschlichen Psyche in Folge von Rauschmittelmissbrauch aus. Das selbsternannte Expertengremium wird angeführt von dem Neuköllner Hobbybotaniker Uli Hannemann. Unterstützt wird der Bestsellerautor von der Clubexpertin Anne Hahn und dem Friedrichshainer Chillmeister André Bergelt.

Also playing are SHRUBBN!! a collaboration of T.raumschmiere and Schieres focussing on dark drones, who present their latest cooperation with the visual trio TRANSFORMA, known for his work with Apparat and others. With POLE and others following on the main floor, this night will cover anything from ambient to techno crossing over dub techno, electro and whatever.
On the outside floor ALEX SMOKE is keen to present an extended daring dj set far away from how you may know him. And we are happy to have him do exactly that.
This is what we want, and this is what this festival is about!

The saturday night focusses on rougher sounds on the main floor. Vocalist TIM EXILE will leave you standing with your mouth open, when he builds weird electronica tracks from sounds he makes with his mouth only. Rephlex-artist CEEPHAX ACID CREW, brother to the infamous Squarepusher, will kick the audience’s bottom with his very own definition of an acid inferno. Another highlight is the newcomer scottish duo LAKKER, who fascinated with their recent releases on KILLEKILL and blueprint and the unique mixture of techno, IDM and dubstep, they work on. No wonder their tracks get played a lot by people like Aphex Twin or Surgeon.
Start time: 23:00
