HOLY B is an experimental musician, progressive electric bass player, producer and performer, whose sound ranges from lo-fi ambient soundscapes to noisy rhythms and progressive beats. He is currently releasing a series of EPs "Adventures in Lo-Fi", as well as doing live-shows, that are accompanied by his DIY light bulbs installation or analog video visuals. He recently joined Munich based producer Brnjsmin for a track on his freshly released EP "Skin" on LA-based label Katuktu Collective.
"Adventures in Lo-Fi - Vol. 1 is a brilliant display of bringing the electric bass to unfamiliar settings. HOLY B's uninhibited use of analog noise and distorted samples shifts the perspective on the lo-fi umbrella and helps us glance into the genre's diversity." - thebopbscollective
HOLLINGER X MOONO
The interdisciplinary duo has just released their first debut album "Reflections", an adventurous ambient record, which combines the use of algorithms and synthesizers, as well as sampling of acoustic instruments, creating a journey through organic waves of sound and space.
Its approach is highly inspired by acclaimed artists in the scene, such as Tim Hecker and Loscil.
The music of the duo's first release is constantly exploring a non-binary world of emotions, trying to simultaneously excite and relax, depending on the listeners involvement.
MUSIC FOR LIGHT BULBS
An audio-visual performance act that aims to explore the relation between sound, light and improvisation through electronics. Bernhard has spent the last years exploring contemporary techniques of improvisation through electronic music devices and building his unique controller that enables him to transfer musical data into light. The sound is a mix of ambient, drone and contrasting down to up-tempo grooves; adapting to the performance environment.
Hollinger has shared light-design and installative works at Mahalla Berlin, Schmiede 19 in Hallein and Earsessions Amsterdam, Lo-Fi Playground, OT301 and OCCII Amsterdam.
RUTGER MULLER & BERNHARD HOLLINGER

"Rutger Muller and Bernhard Hollinger have done a masterful job pioneering their innovative sound. The classical samples, contemporary instrumentation, and futuristic processing all come together to bring this faceted atmosphere to life." - thebopscollective
