Athens – based event series ‘π’, crossed the Greek borders and made its Berlin debut with a night at Arena Club.
π09 was the 9th edition of the series, which came as a collaboration event with ’Samsara Sessions’ , a London founded party which debuted at Corsica Studios, London in 2014.
On the 17th of July, ‘π’ and ’Samsara Session s ’ proudly presented this special line-up of artists, combining influences from Greece, Germany and Hungary: Ancient Methods, Sawf, Lower Order Ethics, Modeo and 3.14 were hosted at one of the most prominent club locations of Berlin; Arena Club.
Ancient Methods is one of Berlin’s long time heroes, a true figure of the industrial sound for almost a decade and a dj to offer the “funk” part of his pitch black techno war funk. With releases on labels such as ‘Sonic Groove’, his own imprint ‘Ancient Methods’ as well as ‘Downwards’ (as ‘Ugandan Methods – alias project alongside Regis), we couldn’t think of a more appropriate man to headline our first Berlin event.
Sawf, coming from Athens, can be considered as the most respected representative away from the Greek boarders. He is also a regular at the ‘π’ events in Athens, as well as an artist of the Greek label, Modal Analysis. His visit to Berlin was additionally connected to his release on Modal Analysis (MA09: Sonic EP) which came out in September 2015.
Lower Order Ethics is Szilvia Lednitzky; an artist hailing from the murky depths of underground Budapest nights. She is also a well known face of the industrial-noise scene of Berlin for some years now and a ‘ReadyMade Distribution’ dj, with appearances at some of the biggest events of the city, such as CTM, ATONAL, Contort, Liber Null and many many more.
Modeo, is another act who reflects the rich Hungarian techno-industrial scene. A very talented producer, with releases on the Spanish imprint Subsist and more music material to be published soon. Modeo presented his latest 1hr live set in between the dj sets of the rest of the π09 guests.
The night was also supported by the ‘π’ resident; 3.14, co-owner of the Modal Analysis label and team founder of the ‘π’ events.
