TISSUE Magazine Mixtape 12 by DAVID RIMOKH
French girls say ‘Oui!’ and TISSUE Magazine says: Electro(nic) Body Music!
Listen to the mixtape of DAVID RIMOKH, born in Vancouver, now living in Paris. DJ, producer, and founder of Zone Records. The label has released some several EPs by The Hacker, Gesaffelstein, David Carretta, Arnaud Rebotini and more. It showcases the darker side of Techno and Electro with references to dark wave and electronic body music. His parties are legendary, and the last one we missed also featured Michael Mayer next to The Hacker. DAVID’s mixtape is a straight forward 30 minutes essence of Electro: music for your body.

TISSUE Magazine Mixtape 11 by CRATO
Dear reader, this is sort of a listening track mixtape. But not in that funky DJ Koze way, more in that shut-up-listen-and-learn way. Learn something about the more specific state of electronic music in 2013 and learn something about the musical mind of CRATO who actually gave this mixtape the title “6.7.1998”.

CRATO is one of the three heads behind MAGAZINE from Cologne. This very demanding and prolific music label run by Jens-Uwe Beyer, Barnt and CRATO is also known for its highly visual approach with special limited editions. Every single release is another piece of art. Their first ten records paid respect to the contemporary electronic music tradition of the German Rhineland. From their 11th release on they will switch their musical as well as their visual concept. Fans, stay keen till MAGAZINE’s next release on JULY 29th by WASSERMANN.
Another fine piece of craftsmanship these renaissance men publish is their mono thematic book project PUBLIC FOLDER. There is a very special edition on the way. We are really looking forward to the publication based on the visual aspect of the Voyager Golden Record. It will be released this Autumn/Winter. Yes, exactly, that fine golden disc they put outside the voyager with all the information imprinted intelligent extraterrestrial life needs to know about human mankind on Earth. Don’t worry if the search takes a bit longer — the durability of the disc in space is at least 1 billion years. magazine.mu

THE GROSSMEISTER IS BACK FOR MORE!
Here’s his complete story as published in TISSUE N°3: WALTER DAHN serves us an enormous second helping of his delightful take on grungy erotica, mixing it up with Cohen’s “Chelsea Girl” and everything. Yum. But save your appetite: this Spring he‘ll probably cook it up even bigger at one of our next TISSUE Ultras*.
(*TISSUE Ultra’s our outdoor event mostly held in Hamburg which we already did two times featuring the works of Martin Eder and Maxime Ballesteros. The last month we had not been able to go on with this tradition, because we are still looking for a suitable sponsor.)

TISSUE Magazine Mixtape 10 by BOBBIE*
Some of you might have noticed that TISSUE Magazine loves a hot (and sweaty) rave from time to time. Mostly we like to throw our hands in the air to Hamburg based BOBBIE*. Anyhow—females are the better DJs and BOBBIE* got it all: the sound, the look and the skills. BOBBIE* is a supporter and member of Team TISSUE since high school and there won’t be any TISSUE Ultra event without her. She’s so fucking nonchalant while spinning those records—that is why we like to call her the face of TISSUE sometimes.

She is a regular host of the event series KNOCK KNOCK in Hamburg as well as a longterm associate with the infamous THIER crew. Currently she is working on her own fashion label Lies In Layers with a friend. We are dying to see it soon.
This mixtape is a journey through the depths of underground machine funk guided by dark soundscapes, dusty chords, chirping 303 modulations, diverse drum programming from our favorite cities and that kind of sweetness which makes that special musical approach of BOBBIE*, our love.
Approved: This mix works for your clubbing warm-up as well as for your afterhour.

TISSUE Magazine Mixtape 9 by SUPERDEFEKT
The most excellent comes at the end (of the week). Superdefekt is a resident of Hamburg’s Golden Pudel Club and one half of the MFOC (Musik Fetischisten Ohren Charakter) collective who are responsible for the most diverse and exquisite club event on Sundays around town. Mind their artwork by C.I.Alex Solman!
This mixtape is like a two hour rollercoaster ride through the history of house music.

Viennese art collective A.ACTIVITIES reclaim the subway in a seriously good-looking act of civil disobedience. Talking about seriousness, it was quite hard to get a hold of them — their security precautions were no joke. As promised in TISSUE N°3 here’s the video to their illegal performance.
And here’s what they wrote in TISSUE N°3:
“The subway is a powerful symbol. In graffiti culture, the subway has a mythological status as a hard to reach target, and a reminder of graffiti’s origins on the New York public transit lines. For everyone else, the subway is something that belongs to the city’s inhabitants, something that we see and touch every day as we take the train. Still, the subway is out of reach. It is hidden away in tunnels under the city and protected by security, cameras and police. All contact with the subway follows an exact and constructed pattern and any movement out of that pattern is prohibited. As a media for painting, the subway is taboo.”
“In that moment, in that situation we were present as naked humans, vulnerable and exposed, among giant steel cars, surveillance systems and electric tracks, equipped with nothing but paint. On the spot, confronted with the untouchable subway, with our fears and the closed doors behind us, we left our traces along with a message that is simple and clear: We were here.“
“The public transport authority treats the immaculacy of the trains as their highest priority. No subway will go into traffic with paint on it. By filming the act and publishing the video, we made sure that our traces will never disappear. It is our hope that anyone who has seen the images will keep them in their mind as they go on the subway. Our paintings may have never travelled the city, but they will travel through the internet and can be seen here in print forever.“
THOMAS BAYRLE, FEUER IM WEIZEN
For last year’s documenta 13, THOMAS BAYRLE installed the remnants of an industrial age in the exhibition’s main hall — very hard, very cold, still pretty sexual. For TISSUE N°3, we chose one of his older, more frivolous works, Feuer im Weizen. Same goes for our home office. Melanie just had to buy one of his cheeky graphics from the Antiquariat around the corner after walking past it for months. Be sure to visit his solo show All-In-One at the Wiels in Brussels these days.
