Subverted Entertainment and Sounds of Bass are proud to present…
A Punks Music Showcase with Left/Right, MARTEN HØRGER, and Zander.
With a special opening set from Ishe/Tnure.
— Punks Music, headed up by label bosses Stanton Warriors, has been on a mission to bring the absolute best in Broken Beat and Heavy Bass music from around the world. With numerous top charting hits covering the whole spectrum of underground dance music, to say that Punks Music has been a game changer is an understatement.
Chris Lund aka Left/Right has spent over 15 years working from Dallas as a dj, producer, promoter, and professor. His music has
been featured in Rolling Stone, DJ Mag, Mixmag, Insomniac and garnered support from Oliver Heldens, The Crystal Method, Massive Attack, Mr Carmack, Zeds Dead, Wuki, BBC Radio 1, Rinse FM and more. L/R works as an artist and A&R for Stanton Warrior's label PUNKS as well his own imprint/brand, BRØKEN.
With degrees in both music composition and audio engineering, Chris love to create. His tunes and dj mixes feature a diverse bass sound that drive his energetic performances and introspective mixes. L/R is regularly booked coast to coast and internationally to move dance floors — including sets at Fabric (London), Burning Man, SXSW, WMC, LightsAllNight, Euphoria festivals, and his resident BRØKEN events.
— Marten Horger:
Imagine Bassmusic, with an analogue soul, coming straight from the motherland of Electro. Sounds good? Well, that’s Marten. From Australia to North America and Europe to Asia, Marten Hørger has amassed a following of devoted fans and made a lot of ‘Bleeps & Bass’ loving friends along the way.
He started his career at the age of 15 and although he wasn’t allowed to be in the club legally, he still managed to secure a residency at ‘Douala’, one of South Germany’s most famous underground techno club. Marten first gained international attention when German Elektro originator Westbam labeled him ‘the new wonder kid of bass music’.
Since then, he’s donned the hat of both DJ and producer, releasing a crate-load of music to critical acclaim. His first ever solo release ‘LGFU’ earned him two international Breakspoll Awards for Best Single and Producer of the year. Never one to stop, after ‘LGFU’, Marten continued to drop singles and remixes on labels like ‘Instant Vibes’, his new Home ‘Punks Music’, and ‘Central Sation Records’ in Australia (the latter being nominated for ‘Video of the Year’ at the international Bassmusic awards). Being a analog synth collector helped him create an inimitable sound, which gained huge support from fans, A-list DJs and radio stations worldwide.
Not bad for a small town boy who grew up in the countryside, pounding Schnitzels and eating Spätzle in the kitchen of his mom’s restaurant in Ravensburg, Germany.
Marten has taken his personal idea of multi tempo – multi genre ‘Bleeps & Bass’ all over the world. He’s played DJ gigs everywhere from Beirut to Brooklyn and Ibiza to Siberia. It’s easy to see why he’s beloved by DJ’s and fans everywhere. With over a dozen North American and Australian tours, playing festivals like Shambhala, Kazantip, Mayday, Breakfest, Snowbombing, and Love Parade (R.I.P.), as well as residencies all over the world, it’s hard to see how Marten finds time to mentor and provide a springboard for new talent.
Stamina Agency, founded by Marten & his childhood buddy Norb, is a boutique management and booking agency dedicated to helping quality music get the exposure it deserves. It’s home to both, established stars as well as a small group of up-and- coming DJs and producers.
In addition to his solo projects and running the agency, Marten is also one half of the duo SMASH HIFI, along with ex-Prodigy member Leeroy Thornhill. In march this year they released their first EP which led them to inking a deal with BMG. SMASH HIFI’s full length album is currently in the making.
As a DJ and producer, Marten has achieved what seems to be so elusive in today’s music landscape: He’s carved out a lane of his own and he’s driving in it without limits.
The main boss man of Prime and one of the managers of US broken beat label BROKEN w/ Left/Right, Zander also boasts wicked releases on Punks Music. Bringing a dark bass heavy vibe that grips you deep within the cockles of your heart. Zander is carving out his sound in a world dominated by air horns and super saw leads. Usually orchestrating his own massive events via PRIME in Texas, Zander is supporter of heavy bass music from his production to his promotion.
