Mala Herba

Mala Herba (synth witch craft, minimal dark wave)
is a solo project of a sound artist and queer music activist Zosia Hołubowska. Based on
traditional music, magic and demonology of Eastern Europe, Mala Herba explores
queerness and sex-positivity. Powerful, witchy vocals are weaved into hypnotic beats, cold
base lines and romantic synthesizer melodies. There's something gothic and dramatic to it
but nevertheless 'this' makes you dance. Sometimes the melody cracks, the voice becomes a
magic spell and the song transforms into a noise soundscape. But then the arppegio kicks
back in and your bones resonate with the italo-disco inspired bass and rhythm.


Meta Meat

Both electronic musicians and composers, Somekilos (half of 2kilos &More) and Phil Von (co-leader of Von
Magnet) also share a passion for percussions and rhythms.
Their common project entitled META MEAT associates the source of flesh (MEAT) with its passage beyond (META).

META MEAT is a very physical live act bound to propel our bodies and souls into another state, a state of release
and trance, incarnating a wish to elevate our animality towards a higher conscience of being.

The duo fights together a vibrant duel. Their joined skills and energies combine real drumming & beating
(Somekilos), real stamping & banging (Phil Von) together battling against twisted virtual synths samples &
machines. The electronic sounds being treated as radically as the acoustic percussions played by the two
musicians, the musical result turns out sounding utterly “tribal”.
Enhanced by the magnificent production and mixing of Def, this first album is a Samurai pact, a commitment to raw
musical integrity and an oath to elegant barbaric sonic power.

And if this album was a weapon, the perfect soundtrack for our actual world wars? Cruel, merciless, sad, pandemic
but harshly accurate. When two antagonistic cultures scrape and collide against each other, Occidental versus
Oriental, modern versus archaic… even adding the Eastern Asian third part into the balance, so to stir an even more
complex and brutal electro-ethnic blend.
How can we envision a better world? Let us first try to transcend its poignance.
