Paul St-Hilaire / Tikiman mix tribute

Berlin’s deep space dub techno scene has a voice, and Paul St Hilaire is surely the one most entitled to claim its title. The artist that first made his mark as Tikiman. Born in Grandbay on the Caribbean Island of Dominica but a true dub vocalist, Tikiman burst onto the scene during the mid-1990s The understated disco dub of “Never Tell You” was the earliest I can recall hearing of him, a debut 10-inch release on Basic Channel’s Burial Mix subsidiary.

!nertia – CeroCeroCero [Full Album]

!nertia is a sonic artist who pushes the boundaries of sound. His work explores the motion of sound through an instinctive way of working: he makes field recordings and then he extracts movement out of these natural sounds. Afterwards, he combines these sounds into live electronic music through the journey of inertia, creating a smooth and organic blend, fusing two different worlds into one.

This unique approach results into emotional and hypnotic art works, which mutate into performances to experience his narrative sound in diverse multisensorial ways. !nertia‘s live electronic performances have different shapes like art exhibitions and sound installations. Besides that, !nertia often collaborates with artists from different disciplines like graphic designers, fine artists, tattoo artists, musicians and composers.

Enjoy the ride!

Bjika – “Thanks to all my family and friends for supporting me. Big shout out to the secret listening crew: Mark, Rob, Mike, Dylan & Kev”
