With such a wealth of raw talent on offer at HER DAMIT 2018, we’ve picked out a few select performers to give you a sense of what’s on offer at this unique techno festival held 50km from Berlin at the Bunkeranlage Freudenberg between between 7-10 September.
Appropriation Stories is one of the top Shifted works to date – providing everything fans and new listeners could want out of a techno album, while not trying to vacillate between the dancefloor and a headphone listen. It has terrific balance, exudes confidence and packs a mean punch with silk sheets surrounding it.
Shifted’s commitment to relentless, uncompromising sound is distinct, and as these EPs prove, the results are thrilling. There is a slight sense that they’re serving as a transition to the next Shifted full length, but their clarity and intensity is a reminder of the potential still held in dark, hard, techno.
