Taste the House set of Heartthrob this Saturday at Golosa

His sexy set will make you freaky at Golosa, Taste the sensational Heartthrob ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤

Under the guise Heartthrob, Jesse Siminski has been defining a unique corner of underground house and techno for over a decade.

He has released thirteen EPs and twenty remixes on many of the scene’s most respected labels including M_nus, Ghostly, Cocoon, BPitch, Mute, in addition to his own imprint ISNISNT.

Honed over twenty years of record collecting and studio experimentation, Jesse has a knack for capturing peak emotion and energetic grooves with the flair of an experimentalist. The hit track ‘Baby Kate’ and the full-length album ‘Dear Painter Paint Me’ stand out as two out of a number of important releases. He has remixed for the likes of Depeche Mode, The Knife, Plastikman and Fischerspooner. Most recently, Jesse released the EP Nairobi Candles on Seth Troxler’s label Play It Say It, to great acclaim. He has spent the last 12 years DJing and playing hardware-driven live shows in many of the top clubs around the world: a former resident of Paris’ storied Rex Club and a frequent guest at London’s Fabric, Berlin’s Berghain, Tokyo’s Womb and New York’s Output. 

While living in New York, an encounter with Magda would lead to friendships with Troy Pierce, Richie Hawtin, and Kevin McHugh. In 2005, they came together on Hawtin’s label Minus, marking the emergence of minimal techno, first in New York and then around the world. Through his work with the label, Jesse took part in genre-defining projects in collaboration with technology giants Native Instruments, Ableton, and Allen & Heath.

Born in Northern Michigan, Jesse’s father introduced him to dance music and he tuned his ear at a relative’s record shop near Detroit. Prince, Kraftwerk, and Laid Back were early touchstones of a beat that would become so important to his music. Label’s like Relief, Plus 8 and Communique formed the backbone of Jesse’s record collection and informed his sensibilities early on. 

After stints in New York and Paris, Jesse currently calls Berlin home.

Golosa: Hi Heartthrob, how can you describe your sounds?
Heartthrob: My Sound is broad and embraces a variety of moods and feelings,  but can be defined as forward thinking and above all else funky and rooted in sex. 

Could you talk about the mix that you share today with us?
The “Is Burning” mix Is one I recorded last year for my friends in Amsterdam.  It is a collection of tracks from different times and places that all resonate moods I like on the dance floor… Mystery and playfuness come to mind. Together its sexy and interesting. Which is always the point for me when I wanna dance.

What is your freakiest experiences?
My freakiest experience is still on the horizon. Berlin has been the perfect place to be surprised on a regular basis…

A bite of Marum: from the insane Queer Lisbon party Mina to Golosa

Marum-Dj guest

The 18th of May will be his premiere at Golosa, we talked with Marum about his music and his freaky experiences 💎💦

Risen to prominence from Lisbon’s underground scene as a resident of mina‘s infamous raves, Marum has crafted a unique and hybrid artistic practice: relentless rave DJ and community utopian-researcher.

One of the instigators of the queer rave mina (Lisbon), co-founder of the label and artist agency suspension (Lisbon/Berlin), and member of the community radio Quântica (Lisbon), Marum holds a refined and thoughtful sonic and political signature that moves entire communities and dance floors.

Their sets are unashamed worship sessions of hypnotic, acidic techno, cavernous industrial beats with elements of EBM, trance and aerial drones, taking influence from film scores, minimalist composers and musique concrète. Oscillating between meditative soundscapes and fast-paced high-energy music, the dance floor is taken to a contagious physical and mental catharsis, manipulating the realms between anxiety, peace, and ecstasy.

In a constant exchange with new scenes, Marum has played in parties, clubs and festivals across Europe. Recent highlights include sharing bills with SPFDJ and VTSS at Berghain’s Säule (Berlin), headlining at the castle of Forte Festival along with Alva Noto and Surgeon, an extended closing at Room 4 Resistance, playing Red Light Radio and De School (Amsterdam), regular visits to Lux (Lisbon).

At the end of 2018 Marum played at the mina curated Lisbon Boiler Room, part of Hard Dance: a series of shows revolving around the most vital contemporary crews pushing boundaries in the rave scene.

2019 will bring Marum’s first Asian tour, a b2b with Violet at Impulso Festival, an artist residency at Q21 in Vienna curated by Bogomir Doringer, and the participation at WHOLE Festival (Germany).

Parallel to DJing, Marum is also a visual and performance artist, curator, and writer, working with the experimental platform XenoEntities Network and Rabbit Hole, focusing on gender, queer and feminist theory, technology and digital culture, electronic music and club politics.

Golosa: Hi Marum, how can you describe your sounds?
Marum: At the moment I’ve been playing both faster and slower: navigating through ambient and downtempo dreamscapes and speeding up on the techno and acid with dashes of EBM and trance (reviving some old tastes).

Could you talk about the mix that you share today with us?
This set reflects exactly that rave-forward beats I’ve been playing while evoking slower and trippy harmonies of some composers I love.

What is your freakiest experiences?
From playing on the top of a hill in castle-festival to holding the hand of a frontliner while he got ass-fucked, it’s difficult to pick one out of so many.

A slice of Overland: she makes her Berlin's debut at Golosa

Overland Pic

The 18th of May will be her big premiere in Berlin at Golosa. Her new acid EPs Colossal Book Of Mathematics releases on Helpful Music and Forever in Transit releases on Violet’s label Naive are a delicious appetizer to taste her acid style 🍋😋

From her base of operations in Vancouver, Canada, she’s gradually attracting the attention of international labels with original productions rooted in the sonic cultures of places like Detroit, New York, and The United Kingdom. Her DJ sets are mesmerizing, ranging from banging warehouse techno, to fast-cut acid breaks, and bass-driven industrial music.

She was invited on the Swamp81 Rinse FM show with Loefah in August 2017 and Rinse France in April 2018 debuting some of her original tracks. Shortly thereafter her tracks appeared on two notable compilations, Sweat Equity Vol. 3: Extreme Hits, presented by New York label Sweat Equity, and Never A Land Without People, a charity compilation benefiting Palestinian human rights activists.

Her track “Steam Bun Acid” was selected as a feature out of the New York compilation on Resident Advisor.

She was soon contacted by labels based in New York and Lisbon with the prospect of releasing two full-length vinyl EPs, both due for release in the fall. In addition, her remix of Tin Man’s “Drenched Acid” was chosen to be apart of his Acid Friend compilation, which is being released mid September.

She has gradually honed in on her distinct, driving sound that is heavily influenced by the piercing acid techno soundscape of the classic rave era, and shows no sign of slowing down. Overland is a force to be reckoned with!

Golosa: Hi Overland, how can you describe your sounds?
Overland: I play a mixture of acid, techno and breaks.

Could you talk about the mix that you share today with us?
It starts slower (123 BPM) and ends fast (140 BPM). It has a lot of my favourite music right now, lots of cuts from ‘92 as well as newer, harder acid.

What is your freakiest experiences?
Playing for freaks all the time 😋
