Robert Johnson, Nordring 131, 63067 Offenbach
Doors: 00:00h
Concert: 00:30h
Clubnight: 01:30h – open end

Finally we’ve managed to host a show with one of our current favorite acts. Toresch is the latest band project by Düsseldorf based Detlef Weinrich (Tolouse Low Trax, Kreidler, Salon Des Amateurs) and Viktoria Wehrmeister (La! Neu?) plus Jan Wagner (Visuals). With their 2016 debut album “Essen Für Alle”, released on Vladimir Ivkovic’s Offen Music label, they instantly captured our hearts with this unique downtempo-electro-synthwave-tribal-industrial fusion. Toresch will start at 00:30h, so better don’t be late!

After the concert we’ll celebrate Tactile’s 7th anniversary with a clubnight. The DJs are Credit 00 (Rat Life Records, Uncanny Valley, Leipzig) plus Frankfurt residents Orson Wells (Sound Mirror, Live At Robert Johnson, Tactile) and Philip Berg (Blind Bodies). We are looking forward to meet you at another night of carefully selected and mixed wide ranged exceptional clubmusic. You know the score! :)

..the event page got lost during the conversion of the “tactile frankfurt” facebook account from a profile to a page. so what! ;)

As you know tactile is all about the concentrated dedication for versatile music on vinyl and of course we love DJs that feel the same passion too. This saturday three of germany’s most deeply committed DJs will play at tactile’s 4th anniversary party.

About our special guest:

Helena Hauff is a DJ and producer from Hamburg, Germany, where she runs a club night called Birds and Other Instruments at the Golden Pudel Club.
 Helena’s sound as a DJ can’t be nailed down as she cuts between genres with ease. Dirty Acid, Chicago, Electro and Wave mixed in an obsessive way, as you can hear on Blackest Ever Black’s sub label Krokodilo Tapes, where she released a limited edition mix tape, ‘Obscure Object’.
As a producer this obsessive nature comes across in the intensity of her music. This can be seen in her releases that have been on Actress’s Werkdiscs imprint, and Bunker offshoot, Panzerkreuz. In addition, she is half of ‘Black Sites’ along with F#X, who have also seen a release on Panzerkreuz as well as PAN.

Hypnobeat Rooted in the concept of a “neo-tribal” approach; reducing electronics to the emotional, hypnotic rhythm core, James Dean Brown founded Hypnobeat in 1983. Affected by the energy and the emotional impact of polyrhythms, their live sets turned out to become machine improvisations centered around the inimitable sound of the Roland TR-808 plus a wide range of analog gear including up to six synchronized rhythm machines. Active contributors to the tape scene of the 80′s, two retrospective Hypnobeat vinyl albums are planned for release in 2014 on Serendip and Dark Entries.

In 2012 Hypnobeat retransformed from its successor Narcotic Syntax (Perlon) with an exclusive live solo performance of James Dean Brown in Paris. Now 2013 sees the exciting new evolution of Hypnobeat with Helena Hauff joining the project. Available for live shows consisting of 1 x TR-707 + 3 x TR-808 + 1x TB-303 + an array of effects, Hypnobeat (James Dean Brown + Helena Hauff) is resurrected.

Tropic Rhonda & Tactile present TAKO (ESP Institutes, Red Light Records, Amsterdam) at Schwedlersee Frankfurt

Tropic Rhonda & Tactile Record Store join together to celebrate at our favorite Frankfurt outdoor location.
saturday 15.06.2013
doors open: 20:00-06:00
how to get there:
delicious food and drinks served by the Schwedlersee team
musical journey into the light with:
TAKO (ESP Institutes, Red Light Records, Amsterdam)
Having been involved in the dance music scene since the 90′s Tako’s knowledge and taste run wide and deep and as a DJ he can be heard playing everything from leftfield electronic oddities, afro disco, 80′s synth pop and soulful gems.
Always searching for that next amazing record, Tako seems to sidestep the obvious, discovering and championing great music regardless of genres or trends.
After DJing in underground clubs all over the world for many years , Tako has recently become more focused on running Amsterdam’s newest and freshest record store “Red Light Records” along with fellow digger Abel Nagengast (Black Disco). Housed in a former prostitution window the store has quickly become infamous for its amazing and unique selection of records, drawing some of the biggest diggers and underground DJs from across the world.
Tako has also in recent years been making music himself with Jonny Nash (Land Of Light) for the project called Sombrero Galaxy (the first release of Lovefingers label ESP Institute) and following on from last years amazing “Into The Light” compilation of Greek electronic gems he will be releasing the first records on his new label “Music From Memory.

2 Years Tactile Anniversary Party | A Made Up Sound aka 2562 @ Robert Johnson

2nd Annual Report

tactile is proud to present the unique sounds of:

A MADE UP SOUND aka 2562

>>Dutch nonconformist Dave Huismans may be best known for his heartfelt and genre-defying bass music experiments as 2562, but his longest-going project A Made Up Sound has been gaining just as much momentum lately. ”You might as well try and stop a train with wire coathangers” is how one of techno’s most widely recognized journalists quite aptly described the sheer force of A Made Up Sound’s oddball yet funk-fueled take on house/techno.<<
>>Adding the much needed elements of unpredictability and guts to a techno/house scene that by and large plays it safe is what A Made Up Sound is after, reflected in his dj performances too. He effortlessly joins the dots between past & future and straight & offbeat like few others, taking risks and pairing energetic mixing skills with a deep knowledge of and passion for dance music through the years. He’s playing regularly at the world’s finest clubs, such as Berghain/Panoramabar (Berlin), Fabric (London), Trouw (Amsterdam) and The Bunker (New York).<<
