2) Dancing on the boundaries of sonic perception, while trying to visit as much as possible facets of- and the duality of life (fruitful & decaying) at once. This as the avatar “Newk” (a combination of the words new and nuke). Started out as one of those kids trying to get the most out of his Amiga computer and the Korg MS-20 he took over from his mom. Then moved on to virtual studio stuff with the same approach. Beorn Lebenstedt, born in Wuppertal, Germany, moved to The Netherlands at
the age of 2 and grew up in Arnhem. Moved to Rotterdam in 2000 to meet the Wreck Havoc crew and Dstruct collective. began dj’ing at freehouseparties and squat-restaurants… Always been obsessed with electronic and digital sound… especially weird sounds, that is possible this way, and there seems no end to it what makes it so exiting to him. Often plays immersive atmospheric that is combined with raw sounds because they are so contradicting. manages to find new ways to convince the listener that what he plays is all danceable music too.
