The Bunker presents DJ Fragment and Galoppierende Zuversicht at subTonic
June 10, 2005
Bruchstuecke is a very weird outsider minimal techno label from Switzerland. We have been huge fans of pretty much every release, starting with the first one in 1999. These guys show very little interest in following trends and have been blazing their own path from the start. Luckily for us, some of the Bruchstuecke posse is on the continent to do a gig at Mutek in Montreal and were very keen to come down to NYC to play with us.
DJ Fragment is Markus Unterfinger, who runs the label. We've never heard him DJ, but have total faith in anyone with good enough taste to put out so many amazing records.
Galoppierende Zuversicht (which means "galloping confidence" in Swiss) is the live project of Bruchstuecke artists Styro2000 and Bang Goes. Their live set incorporates self built samplers and hardware instead of laptops. They recently released their debut 12" on Bruchstuecke. Ricardo Villalobos is calling them the best live techno act in the world right now ... and they pretty much proved it with their unbelievable set at Mutek this Saturday. They had the unenviable task of following up incredible sets by Monolake, Mathew Jonson, Luciano, and Atom Heart. The two Swiss unknowns tore the roof off, despite a major malfunction of a key piece of equipment that they are working to fix by friday. It is unlikely that these guys will be back in the States anytime soon, if ever. This is their only East Coast gig. You'd be a fool to miss this one.
