Italoconnection

Am 18.04. haben wir ein paar echte Legenden zu Gast in der Krone. Drei Weltstars, die fundamental von der elektronischen Musik der 80er Jahre geprägt wurden und sie sich unverkennbar zu Eigen gemacht haben. Miami Cyber Nights proudly presents Welcome to the Robots und Italoconnection Live!

 

Raphael Krickow ist vielen als Teil des international erfolgreichen DJ-Duos ‘The Disco Boys’ bekannt. Im Gegensatz dazu widmet er sich mit seinem Projekt ‘Welcome To The Robots’ aber der Geschichte der elektronischen Clubmusik Anfang der 80er Jahre.
In den ‘Welcome To The Robots’ DJ-Sets spannt er einen Bogen vom prägenden Electro der frühen 80er über den Frankfurt-Sound bis hin zu den ersten Trance- und Techno Tracks des ausgehenden Jahrzehnts und der frühen 90er.
Seit 1980 ist Krickow leidenschaftlicher Anhänger elektronischer Dance-Music. Durch das Umfeld der damaligen Pionierstadt Frankfurt in Sachen elektronischer Clubmusik entwickelte er früh einen Hang zum Mythos Disc-Jockey und zur Computer-Musik. Ab 1983 erlebte Krickow die beginnende DJ-Kultur und die elektronische Clubmusik als Stammgast im Frankfurter ‘Dorian Gray’. 1986 begann er selbst als DJ im Frankfurter ‘Vogue’, dem späteren ‘Omen’. Das ‘Vogue’ war damals das “Wohnzimmer” von ‘Sven Väth’ und Arbeitsplatz von ‘Markus Löffel’ (alias ‘Marc Spoon’), der als Koch in der Club-Küche tätig war. In den folgenden Jahren schrieb er als Frankfurt-Korrespondent und Musik-Redakteur für die erste deutsche DJ-und Dance Zeitung ‘Network-Press’, dem später u.a. das Techno-Sprachrohr ‘Frontpage’ beigelegt wurde. 1990 ging er als Art Director zu ‘Network-Press’ nach Hamburg und gründete 2 Jahre später die Musik-Marketing-Agentur ‘Die Konkurrenz’, wo er u.a. die Lifestyle- und Musikzeitschrift ‘BOOM’ (bei ‘Gruner&Jahr’) gründete. Parallel gestaltete Krickow in Frankfurt das Techno-Magazin ‘GROOVE‘.
Seit 1994 ist er als Teil des DJ-Duos ‘The Disco Boys’ weltweit unterwegs und produzierte 2005 den globalen Clubhit „For You“.

Darüber hinaus laden wir Fred Ventura und Paolo Gozzetti mit ihrem Live-Set an Pult und Mikrofon. Seit 2010 machen sie gemeinsam als Italoconnection Musik, unter ihren Händen verschmilzt klassischer 80s-Italo-Sound mit kontemporärer Härte und Drive. Fred Ventura mischte auch bei A Visitor From Another Meaning mit, wohinter wiederum der Niederländer Martijn Hoogendijk samt seinen kosmisch geschulten Produktionen steht. Apropos Cosmic: Bis 1969 reicht die DJ-Karriere von Daniele Baldelli zurück, was man sich nach 30 Jahre Techno ruhig mal auf der Zunge zergehen lassen kann – sie nannten ihn la leggenda. In Baldellis Sets mischt sich Italo aber gern mit Funk und Cosmic Disco, keine Gewähr also für Genrepuristen. 2017 veröffentlichten Ventura und Gozzetti ihre neueste LP “Metropoli”.

Timecop1983 on:
Website    Bandcamp    Facebook

Timecop1983’s music is best described as romantic, cinematic and dreamy. There are many names for the genre but he always likes to label it as Synthwave or Dreamwave.

Amongst producers like “Carpenter Brut”, “Perturbator” and other more aggressive ’80s inspired musicians he stands out by creating mainly romantic music that takes you back to the time of Back to the Future, Power Rock Ballads and hanging out at the mall with your friends while looking at girls in hotpants and neon clothes.

He has been making music since he was 12 years old and started making music with Scream Tracker in MS DOS on a 386 computer without any musical background. After a long time of learning how to make music by himself he could finally come up with his own songs and he started making all kinds of music, ranging from hardrock to classical music.

After years of exploring his taste Timecop1983 decided to fully focus on 80’s inspired music. Especially the kind that creates a nostalgic/romantic feeling. His style is dreamy and emotional with modern/ambient/soundtrack influences and he is often praised for his uniqueness within the, still growing, “New Retro Wave” culture.

Since the release of his debut album “Childhood Memories” in February 2014 he has been anything but unproductive with 4 albums and 6 EP’s to his name.

His music has been featured in various (short) films (including Netflix productions Coin Heist and You Get Me), he is part of the soundtrack for the videogame “Crossing Souls” by Fourattic (published by Devolver Digital (Hotline Miami)), he has done soundtracking for various other films and he started a side-project called Division.

In 2016 he started doing live shows and he has done many (international) performances since. In his live performances he likes to combine his more upbeat/danceable tracks with his dreamy works.

Nina is a Synthpop / Synthwave singer-songwriter based in London, UK. Born and raised in Berlin, she began singing at the age of six and moved on to classical training during her teens. She cites Depeche Mode as one of her early musical influences and currently counts Kavinsky as one of her fans

Her original music has been featured on The Voice (US) and her collaboration with Dutch dreamwave artist Timecop1983 ‘Dreams (Feat. Dana Jean Phoenix)’, was featured in the Netflix original films ‘You Get Me’ and ‘Coin Heist’ and the PS4/PC game ‘Crossing Souls’.

Our sincerest thanks, from the bottom of our hearts go out to everyone that made this event possible: From everyone that came out, to our amazing helpers, Mizucat with her beautiful art, Digital Retro Park and their games, and obviously our incredible artists and new friends MightyGlenMorgan WillisFuturecop! and VHS Dreams – you all make these events so very special.
While we are back to normal life, we will think back to this day for a looong time to come. 💕
For the rest of the year we will be recharging and prepping for the new year and might not be as active. We are looking forward to kickstart 2019 with you!

Letzten Samstag, kurz bevor sich die Türen für unsere große Nacht geöffnet haben. Und was für eine Nacht es war!
Ein riesig großes Dankeschön, aus tiefstem Herzen, an alle die dieses Event möglich gemacht haben: Begonnen bei allen, die gekommen sind, hin zu unseren fantastischen Helfern, Mizucat mit ihrer Kunst, Digital Retro Park und ihren coolen Retrospielen, und natürlich unseren unglaublichen Künstlern und neuen Freunden Mighty Glen, Morgan Willis, Futurecop und VHS Dreams – ir alle macht unsere Events zu etwas so besonderem!
Obwohl wir so langsam wieder im Alltag angekommen sind, werden wir noch lange an diesen Abend zurück denken. 
Für den Rest des Jares werden wir die Akkus wieder aufladen und für nächstes Jahr vorbereiten, und deshalb wahrscheinlich nicht ganz so aktiv sein. Wir freien uns schon auf ein tolles 2019 mit euch!

Danger: http://www.2emedanger.com/

As a child, I grew up sitting in front of a computer by myself.
That is where I learnt about music; playing video games and watching endless reruns of cartoons and American TV shows.
Television gave me shelter when I was alone, nursed me with Hollywood’s mythologies.
It guided me through nameless countries; with it I brought down colossuses and climbed mountains.
I preached its beliefs. But when I grew up, all my heroes died.

Today, I still come to mourn in deserted movie theatres.
There, lights flash before my eyes.
But I don’t feel anything in face of the latest blockbusters and their visual explosions,
these chaotic clusters where Mechas and Kaijus pile up in between fights under the rain,
tsunamis and apocalyptic scenes… Yet I feel numb, except for the roaring sub-basses that fill the void of cinemas.
My music is for those who, like me, have grown up amongst the ruins of blockbusters. For them my bass trembles and my synths screech.

But I know that beyond this digital coldness lie other horizons, other possibilities.

Sung: https://sung-music.bandcamp.com/

Sung is a French Korean electronic music artist from Paris.
Since 2013 he has produced electronic music inspired by 80’s pop culture, cyberpunk imagery and space conquest.
Most of his songs are instrumentals, as a soundtrack for a night cruise in a futuristic city.
His style is described as “urban, electric and heavy”.
He has played among prominent artists such as Perturbator or Carpenter Brut.

Sung became interested in music at a young age.
He started the piano at the age of 6 and soon extended to guitar.
In the late 1990’s his father bought an imac computer and it was the beginning of his electronic music productions.
