Started in 2006, WASTED has been ripping up many of the biggest cities in Europe with their unique approach to Breakcore parties. Always hard and always fun, WASTED is a sort of celebration of hard styles of music, lead by legendary producers and Dj's Pure and Dj Donna Summer (AKA Jason Forrest). Together with DISK/CTM, they form a rare team of open minded, fun, and hard-hitting individuals who's interests go beyond merely having a "good party".
For WASTED OVER TOULOUSE, they have invited two artists to join them, Legendary Horror-Booty-Rave-madman Otto Von Schirach
from Miami, USA, and Bristol Uk's Binray
. Binray has been pushing the very boundaries between beats and noise, "intelligence" and brutality for years, releasing two incredibly dense and brilliant records for Zod records. His unique sound is difficult to label, bearing elements of Opera, Grindcore, IDM, and Ambient. While Otto von Schirach has been a mainstay of the international Noise/Breakcore/IDM/Goth scene since 2000, releasing a bunch of awesomely insane records on labels such as Mike Patton's Ipecac records and IDM founder's Schematic. WASTED OVER TOULOUSE will be his debut European show for 2008, where he'll be revealing new material from a new album out June 08. Both performers are known for wild performances pushing the audience into different states of rapture.
Of course, they play in combination with the WASTED founders, Pure
and Dj Donna Summer
, both of who will be packing enough records to play crazy shit for 3 days strong! Peter Votava aka Pure started DJ'ing and producing in 1991 releasing more than 20 vinyls with solo works on many labels. During this time, he became one of the main developing influences in hardcore techno and helped invent what was to be known as Breakcore. But he is perhaps best known for his early 90's group with Christopher Just, the famed Ilsa Gold, whose innovative pranks and heavy rave sound literally paved the way for subsequent generations of Mash-up and Breakcore producers. DJ Donna Summer is the "new" moniker of Jason Forrest, who has been constantly on tour since 2000, runs a label called Cock Rock Disco, has been promoting parties in Berlin, and even hosted a radio show. He's been involved with so many killer parties that he's become a sort of brand of entertainment all his own.
Put that all together and you have one fantastic night! Let's get WASTED!!
