MIKE TEXTBEAK HAS A POSSE
† DARK WAVE † INDUSTRIAL † WITCH HAUS † ELECTRO †
† BL▲CK M▲SS † is an avant-garde dance party featuring classic
and newbreed artists from the dark spectrum of music. We invite you
to enjoy a refreshing glass of absinthe and an evening of cold, dark,
haunting and abrasive music.
∆ 1am † MIKE TEXTBEAK
Textbeak has always straddled the line between experimental industrial and dance with his releases on labels such as TVNDA DVBS (San Francisco), Lasergun (Berlin), Bleak (Vienna), Vaatican Records (France), Xynthetic (Canada), Time Theory, 21/22 Corp, Swishcotheque (UK), Colin Johnco (France), Amduscias, Audiotie (Germany), Politicide (Germany), and co-owns the Philtre Com imprint with co-conspirator Claus Muzak. His band Bath was featured on the “Why Be Blake When You Can Be Bleak?” compilation on the Bleak label with experimental industrial veterans Coil, Attrition, SLEEPCHAMBER, Nocturnal Emissions, and Portion Control. He also is in the projects WEEP THE PEOPLE (with Claus Muzak and Ben Jones Like Whoa) and 1954 (with poet and stencil artist Eric Alleman, Robert Nagy aka Voctave, and deceased artist Jason Adams aka AGATE). His artwork was featured in the Necessary Discomforts tribute to Rozz Williams (Christian Death, Shadow Project, Premature Ejaculation) at the Hyaena Gallery in LA. From the early ‘90s Columbus, Ohio rave scene, when he was a member of Body Release with Titonton Duvante (Residual Records), Todd Sines (Frankie, Planet E, Peacefrog, YORE), and Charles Noel (aka ARCHETYPE, ARCH_TYP…21/22 Corp, Bag Pak), through the mid ’90s early 2000’s with his band Bath, to his current endeavors, he has always pushed the envelope with his compositions, artwork, text collages, and genre-blasting DJ sets.
∆ 12a † EIN SOF GOYLE
Ein Sof Goyle has been operating clandestinely in Lansing for over 10 years. Founder of Owlcave Records and † BL▲CK M▲SS † events, Ein Sof Goyle has also performed live and recorded with Lansing industrial legends Tetanus, Rue d’Auseil, and Le Chemin Noir. Ein Sof Goyle is always at the razor’s edge of dark electronic, bringing the newest and most underground dark spectrum music to the dance floor. Blending electro-industrial, darkwave, EBM, techno, and witch house into an energetic, hard hitting, and sinister sound.
∆ 11p † ☥CRACKULA☥
Perhaps Lansing’s most active producer, ☥CRACKULA☥ has ventured into nearly every genre of electronic music. Known to us best at † BL▲CK M▲SS † for his chopped & screwed remixes. ☥CRACKULA☥ has performed under a number of aliases including KESSENCHU, PEGACHU, RAVEAGEDDON, I DOWNLOADED A CARD, and O.D.C. performing and producing genres ranging from digital hardcore, 8bit, gabberpunk, breakcore, EBM, skramz, noise, witch house, drumstep, fidget, dubstep, hip-hop, garage, drum and bass, ghettotech. cybergrind, juke, acoustic folk punk, and seapunk. He has played along side hordes of prominent electronic musicians, most recently opening for JOHN HOLLAND of SALEM at † BL▲CK M▲SS † SUND▲Y!
∆ 10p † JAYSEN CRAVES
Jaysen Craves has been bringing the ultra-heavy beat to † BL▲CK M▲SS † since it’s inception. Co-conspirator of † BL▲CK M▲SS † and Owlcave Records, Jaysen Craves has established a reputation for heart pounding aggrotech and industrial sets. Jaysen Craves is also one half of the Detroit-based industrial powerhouse Terror Network, who has recently been blowing minds and speakers all over mid-Michigan and Detroit.
∆ 9pm † SKELLIE LEFLEUR
Skelllie Bat is perhaps one of Detroit’s best kept secrets. Her nostalgic sets strongly appeal to the vintage connoisseur with a library that extends from old school goth, post-punk and death rock to 80s darkwave and industrial. Skellie Bat is one half of Detroit’s elusive industrial juggernaut Terror Network and a † BL▲CK M▲SS † veteran, so get ready for an unforgettable dark retrospective.
