On Saturday night, The Bunker, who have partnered with Unsound Festival New York since its inception will present an evening including a long overdue live appearance of the phenomenal German dub techno duo Porter Ricks (Thomas Köner / Andy Mellwig). The duo were been brought back into the spotlight following the reissue of their rare but acclaimed 1996 debut album “Biokinetics” (a Techno classic if there ever was one) on the Type label as their 100th release in late 2011 (the record was originally released on Basic Channel’s Chain Reaction imprint). Porter Ricks came out of live gig retirement from Germany especially to perform at Unsound Festival Krakow last October, so it seemed only fitting to bring them to New York this spring. Joining these two titans of European electronic music in delivering stunning live music will be three homegrown Brooklyn / New Jersey based talents - fractured house renegade Ital (known for two acclaimed albums on Planet Mu) will be joined by shadowy producer Aurora Halal for a worldwide live debut performance as Ital & Halal, while Leisure Muffin, fresh off the releasing his first ever 12” on The Bunker’s new record label will perform his hard to pin down modular synth infected take on Kosmische music. Also appearing in place of Vladislav Delay who cancelled his US tour is acclaimed New York based electronic, drone, experimental producer Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (aka Lichens). His unique electronic music can be sampled on albums like "Timon Irnok Manta". Lowe has also been reaching new audiences far and wide via his lead performance in the new film "A Spell To Ward Off The Darkness". Looking back to Europe, Miles one half of Demdike Stare, who also records solo works under the name will take to the decks for a unique DJ set and making his New York debut is another Norwegian addition to the festival, Le Petit Garçon, presenting his take on isolated Ambient Techno using a vast expanse of shoegazing guitars, synth harmonics and churning, ice-breaking bass.
