Batiar Gang + Mount Nakara + DJ Offbeatterrorist
February 6, 2016 @ 9:00 pm
Here it is: the pure, bare bones of our Balkan-Blatnik-trash-mashup-Project with that highly tragic name Batiar Gang. We are nine young people from Leipzig, Saxony, Germany that decided to dedicate our live and liver to sex, Balkan music and vodka in November 2014. We, that is namely, Melanka (vocals/violin), Alex (guitar/vocals), Sebbel (drums), Josie (trumpet), Hannes (bass), Stefan (accordion/trombone), Frank (trumpet), Tony (horn/trumpet) and Matze (baritone sax) and all we do is music!
Modernising traditional dub influences, Mount Nakara bring soundsystem culture to the stage with an upbeat, bass heavy live performance. The result is a fresh take on UK roots music.
Over the last 3 years they’ve toured as ‘Komodo’, headlining a number of local festivals and sharing the stage with the likes of Dizraeli, Dub Pistols, The Resonators and Yes Sir Boss.
Janeck Altshuler AKA Offbeatterrorist arrived in Germany in 2001 from southeast Ukraine. In this time dancing to Eastern European rhythms was not a fully established trend, but the crowd in Germany was receptive to his new sound from “the other side of the Iron Curtain”. Janeck’s uptempo beats or deep grooves have inspired devoted club-goers of his “La Bolschevita” nights and other parties in Germany, as well as in Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Slovakia and even Kosovo for years with wild dance orgies. His unique mix of balkan tuba bass and klezmer melodies from Ukraine with cumbia and other tropical music, swing or electro-swing is THE way to energize the dance floor.
