That’s electriXmas wrapped up for another year!
So good to be back again, and with so many amazing artists and friends.
A huge thank you to all the artists, crew and venue staff for making this years event go without a hitch. And of course, thank you to all the happy synth fans who came and partied with us!! We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you again next year!!
Finally we can announce the last artist to this years lineup. It’s been long overdue considering EMMON has been around since 2002 and the early years of the electroclash sound. But she’s back, stronger and darker than ever with a brand new album RECON, launched to critical acclaim at the beginning of October.
‘RECON’ is a ruthless EBM-album, packed with thundering basslines and gritty synths, all coming together seamlessly under Emma’s characteristically smooth soprano vocals. The industrial-club romanticism and pumping beat takes the listener on a journey through well thought out lyricism that carry a red thread throughout the 10 tracks. Emma goes on to explain: ”The new songs have become harder and got a darker costume. Musically, I went back to my creative roots and to the sound of the 00’s electroclash scene that Emmon was created and descends from. Mixed with progressive old school synth in a postmodern production that is primarily produced to be performed live.”
We’re excited to be able to welcome EMMON to this years electrixmas and look forward to an amazing show!
It’s been quiet here the last month, but that’s because we’ve been busy working out the final two artists for this years event.
We’re excited to invite BOYTRONIC to headline this years electriXmas!
Following glittering appearances at European festivals WGT (Germany) and Sinners Day (Belgium) in 2022, the band are very much back after a break since releasing their 2019 studio album “The Robot Treatment”.
Original vocalist and songwriter Holger Wobker (Kamerata/Beachead), returns with former frontman James Knights (Scarlet Soho/KNIGHT$) and with the addition of Justin Deaktivere on keyboards, the band are looking forward to celebrating 40 years of “The Working Model” album in 2023 and releasing brand new music.
Like everyone else we’ve been on an enforced break due to the pandemic. Now that things have finally settled down we’re able to get back to normality!
This years lineup is still being put together, but we have the first three artists for you already!
CAT RAPES DOG is one of the Swedish pioneers of electropunk, starting out as a duo back in 1986. After adding new members, changing lead singer in 1995 and releasing six albums in the nineties, they ran out of fuel in 1999. After a ten year pause, Cat Rapes Dog returned to the stage in 2019. Older and only little wiser, but stronger live than ever!
CRYO The mechanical and electronic style that Cryo stands for contains heavily processed sounds as well as simplistic textures. Heavy basslines and drums form the backbone of repetitive, aggressive pattern throughout the music.
Cryo is on the leading edge of Swedish electronic music, constantly seeking new paths and exploring new ways to bring you nothing else than pure perfection.
ME THE TIGER was born in Falun, Sweden in 2012 and received international attention after releasing their second album ‘Vitriolic‘. The lyrics and the band’s message is a central part of Me The Tiger. Their skill, however, is the actual craftsmanship. Me The Tiger know how to create pop tunes, balancing the tension between melodic content, hooks and lyrics.
