Inåt Bakåt: 100% depp

Spring is over, and the depression is total. Spring's disappointment transitioned into determination as plans to bring Anja Huwe or Lebanon Hannover to Oceanen fell through. The team had to pivot, delving deep into Europe's dark underground to secure an equally compelling booking. What emerged is an evening steeped in atmospheric mystery. From Dortmund's misty waves to the haunting nightmare-wave from the forest, anticipation rises for a release party unlike any other.

At the forefront of the night is Slokwill, the latest addition to the Inåt Bakåt family, unveiling their dreamy darkwave/gaze album “All things must end” (IB007) in a premiere performance. Joining them is synth sorcerer Majestoluxe, heralding the release of their forthcoming EP “Stolid State.” Their mastery of synth manipulation promises an electrifying experience, making attendance an absolute must for all seeking sonic exploration and immersive dark atmospheres.

Isla Ola

With cold guitars mixed with muted vocals and catchy rhythms, enveloped in a sea of mist, a booking couldn't get much better than an unknown coldwave duo from Dortmund in terms of pure Inåt Bakåt vibes! They arrive for a weekend in Gothenburg with a fantastic debut steeped in melancholic grooves, and they have so much more to offer in the future. Join in and experience the genre they've coined from Dortmund: Nebelwave. For concert connoisseurs, this act has high "I saw them first" potential!

Slowkill

Unfortunately, as a record label, you no longer find demo tapes in your mailbox when you come home from work, but never have I received a bunch of songs where everything was already so perfectly crafted. Dark suggestive basslines meet dreamy jangle loops and reverb-drenched shoegaze murmurings. Slowkill walks the line between playfulness and death, beauty and disgust. It's a fantastic and timeless world to be in. One and a half years of email conversations later, it's finally time for it to see the light; the debut album "All things must end," which will be performed live, available for purchase, and universally celebrated during the evening.

Sneak peeks (and pre-orders for the extremely well-stocked cassette) will be available on inatbakat.bandcamp.com on Bandcamp Friday, May 3rd.

Majestoluxe

With rusted beats and concrete-dusty basslines, EBM pioneer and modular mogul Conny Fornbäck flexes his muscles tonight as he celebrates the release of his new EP "Stolid State." With a background in projects like Sound Manufacturers, Seaweed, and The Queeweed, Conny is undoubtedly one of the country's most important figures in experimental electronic underground music. Having released three full-length albums and years of extensive touring under the alias Majestoluxe, we expect nothing less than a fierce battle tonight—somewhere between the borders of 80s industrial, body/prototechno, and experimental electro-acoustic minimal synth, all with heart and darkness in the right places.

Bird and beast

After a few legendary performances, this dark duo lurks in the forests outside the city. Tonight, they take the stage with their beautiful and majestic, trip-hop-infused hauntwave. If the stars had aligned differently, Bird and Beast might have been picked up by some '90s-craving major label, been in heavy rotation on the radio, and they would have been somewhere entirely different than at Oceanen tonight. Anyway, I'm glad that's not the case (yet). Don't forget, it's always the opening act that's the best! That's an old saying, after all.

Djs:

From Stockholm, we are pleased to welcome Sam Caval from the DJ collective Other Voices, delivering post-punk, various waves, and other underground materials to the alternative scene in Europe (or at least from Munich and above). Sam is a seasoned personality within the "Munich Schwarze Szene," playing at venues like Katzen Club, HEX:A, and Kafe Kult. You can regularly find her in Berlin at Heiners Bar and in Stockholm at Yttons or Synth After Work. Very exciting!

However, opening the evening is none other than Swiss wave pioneer Christian Mock aka DJ Anarkrist. Christian has been DJing in Switzerland since 1991 and was for a long time the sole provider of dark music in the small country in the middle of nowhere. In 1999, he co-founded the still active and somewhat legendary underground club Electrodark Party in Geneva. In recent years, he walks around like a Mr. Walker, a regular man on the streets of Majorna, when he's not at home concocting his own homemade absinthe. Tonight, he has promised to mix up a very special, ritualistic hell-brew for us. It could get really eerie.

Be the first with the very latest, be the last with the most outdated. See you there.
