My DJ-Set is dedicated to a party-series i did 20 years ago, which means it contains only songs that i actually used/loved to play there when i did'nt play my own stuff live – the mix could have been played exactly like this 20 years ago.
In 2000 i started „Utterly Wipe Out“ together with some friends (a.o. Kathinka Rouage, called Morpheen those days). We wanted to do a party-series in Berlin with a mix of contemporary very harsh electronic dance music from stuff like Speedcore, Digital Hardcore, Breakcore, Noizecore to Rythmic Industrial and alikes. This kind of genre- & scene-mixture-party did not exist in Berlin those days – the scenes were quite separated but we liked all that stuff and wanted to bring it and the people together for more interesting & wilder partys.
We then did the partys in different Berlin squats, starting at Eimer, then a basement in Rigaer Strasse before we landed early 2001 in Köpi – a place where i was very often those days anyway – kind of a big squat with many good, cool, freaky d.i.y. projects & people existing since more than 30 years now. We were the first to start an electronic party series there i think – the old punk-rockers from the squat's pub were quite shocked about the harshness of the music and noise we made, also about the strobe and fog we unleashed, but they did let us do it altough they could not sleep the nights we made partys with soundsystems that were bigger and louder than their regular punk-concerts upstairs. What i also liked about the partys was that it attracted very different & diverse open freaky people from different musical and other backgrouds. We clearly stated on flyers & announcments that we had a anti-fascist, anti-sexist and anti-racist approach. All money that was generated on the partys was always given to d.i.y. grassroot- or anti-repression projects we thought should be supported. We had great partys there for roughly 3 years until the core of the group changed - for instance i left the group because my (new) job started to occupy me a lot but also i was interested to go explore other music directions & scenes.
Here's a list with a good number of the acts/DJ's that played on our party between 2000 and 2004: Alesh Trash, Amboss, Ashtar DXD, Assassin, Bakalla, Bbllleeaarrgh, Bloody 666, Bowman, BTC 107A, Christoph de Babalon, Christoph Fringeli, DJ Scud, Eiterherd, FFF, Gore, Hecate, Hetzer, H-Kon, I:Gor, Inapt, Istari Lasterfahrer, Jack da Rippa, Kids Return, Kielce Terror Squad, La Peste, LFO Demon, Low Entropy, Maelstrom, M1DY, Morpheen, Nihil Fist, Nishinga, Noize Punishment, Nomix, Poingi, Rokkon, Rotator, Salome, Society Suckers, Steve Riot, Syntax, Trauma XP, Violentus and Zombie Flesheater...
