Inspired by folk music and rhythmic excesses from all over the world the Center of the Universe made his first recordings in 2000. The group, which admittedly is not a band, but rather Jørgen Skjulstads (Now we’ve got members, Salvatore) solo project, combines heavy bass, odd meters and various exotic elements with a lo-fi approach in his recording methods.
Formed in Berlin in 2016, aJan is a brand new musical experience that creates a unique combination of desert grooves ounds with a rave-like atmosphere on stage. With infectious African and Middle Eastern grooves, blended with driving rock guitar and the Berlin electronic influence ,aJan delivers immensely uplifting live performances.
aJan is a band composed of musicians with musical backgrounds rangingfrom Nigeria, MiddleEast to the UK and Germany. Brought together by a love of music and the shared desire to create a live experience that is so irresistible and accessible that youcan't help but dance your troubles away. aJan aims to bring people together from all walks of life, tap into something inside all of us and share a special moment which will live long in memory.

Founded in the early noughties, X.A.Cute has been active in different shapes, forms, and styles, but the roots always remained the same: dub and hip hop, spiced up with whatever caught the attention of core members, DJs and producers Wuzi Khan and Freak Ass E. Over the years X.A.Cute has recorded and played with artists as (among others) Mike Ladd, Miss Red, Mark Stewart, Infinite Livez, The Shadowhuntaz, Holzkopf, Guillermo E. Brown, and Ari Up, with releases on labels as Echo Beach, Moniker Eggplant, Anorakism and Meerkat Recordings. In Summer 2014 MPC wizard Guvibosch joined the line-up after moving from Jerusalem to Berlin, adding his Russian percussion and a selection of bass heavy beats to the mix. After playing a number of successful club and festival gigs, this combination culminated in the digital release "Shards" (2016), based on their live setsIn 2017 X.A.Cute sets out with “Echoes”, a dubbed out 4-track all instrumental bandcamp EP, and a new 7” single featuring Turkish rapper Ethnique Punch (based on the “deep bass 9” riddim form the “shards” album), as well as a full (yet undisclosed) album, due to release later this year. Moreover, the trio shaped a totally new live-set, this time with no samples from other sources at all: All sounds were generated by the musicians, their musician friends, and their hardware. And still no computers are used on stage to allow the band to go off the beaten track when- or wherever they please. Each member has access to the mixing desk at any moment to dub out the events as they come through the channels As it is their habit, X.A.Cute welcomes guests on stage to raise the energy level. This time it will be MC Santana a/k/a Semtex MC, veteran of the Berlin drum & bass scene, on vocal duty and percussionist and Flying Arab Romeo Natour from the Shangl Hangl tribe.
The DJ persona of producer The Center of the Universe, DJ Sissyfus plays eclectic sets that mirror his production style:
bleepy, scratchy, skeewzy bass bangers, spiced up with gems from eastern Europe and the middle east. Freak Ass E
Co-founder of x.a.cute and host of the FreakOuternational radio show and club nights, the Freak is always searching for outernational dance music from vintage to contemporary
Born in Russia, Guvi came to Berlin via Jerusalem where he settled as a creative beatmaker, solo performer and collaborator, with band projects like Neft (with Rocky B) and releases on Generation Bass.
As a veteran MC of the Berlin drum & bass scene, as well as producer, musician and singer (12dingo, Das Aaron, The Mighty Grin Department), and DJ, Wuzi has left his mark on the Berlin scene. He loves to plays outernational tunes from dub to cumbia, from uptempo African jams to heavy UK grime.
To celebrate the occasion, the FreakOuternational took a step back from its usual colourful signature style and commissioned poster art from Nicola Wright, gifted artist from Haifa / Israel.
