Hide + Lovataraxx - Hamburg - Hafenklang
HIDE are an electronic duo based in Chicago. The pair create dark and heavy sample-based compositions using a combination of self-sourced field recordings and various pop culture and media references. Their music is textured, minimal, and powerful, giving raw vulnerability an opportunity to unfurl. Their work is honest, confrontational, powerful and thought-provoking.
Lovataraxx was formed out of the blue in 2013, while crossing the Williamsburg bridge during a Spring break. Staring at the grey and pink stripes of the bridge’s structure, the nascent duet decided to deal with a rollercoaster of emotions in his music and lyrics.Lovataraxx explores the depths of minimal wave, dark electronic and post-punk music. On stage, the two musicians are surrounded by corrosive synthesizers, sharp drum machines and a bass drowned in chorus effects.
Straddling both eighties and nineties influences, Lovataraxx’s aesthetic is nurtured by greek mythology, sci-fi- K.Dick - like novels, and romantic poetry. Enchanting voices, Carpenter’s like synth melodies : it all sounds simultaneously strange and familiar, it all fluctuates between the delusive feelings of the blind hunky-dory days and the long despairs of a lost generation. The audience dances, galvanized by the stage presence of a front woman with her boxer’s braids, switching from english to german language on high speed beats. The duet plays often live with a Vjay sending loop figures in his old TV screens. Lovataraxx's second LP named Sophomore will be out on the German label Cold Transmission Music in April 2024.
