/// RADIKAL GURU
[Moonshine Recordings / Dubbed Out // Gdansk, PL]
One of the brightest lights of the roots-influenced underground community for the past half-decade, Poland born Mateusz Miller has pioneered a compelling and unique fusion of sounds that encompass dub, reggae and dubstep under his Radikal Guru moniker. Inspired by an appreciation of soundsystem culture, his music has become synonymous with suffocating degrees of dread bassweight, vibrant and eclectic palettes of tone, and varying energy levels that cater for both dancefloor focussed ruckus and for more meditative listening.
Heavily influenced by the likes of King Tubby and Scientist, Matt first gained worldwide acclaim and recognition through a string of killer vinyl releases on leading reggae/dubstep imprint Dubbed Out, before forming a creative partnership with fellow label Moonshine Recordings where he has gone on to cement his reputation as one of the strongest proponents of the scene. His Moonshine discography boasts highlights that include his debut LP ‘The Rootstepa’ and the mighty ‘Dread Commandments’ 12”, and keep an eye out for some seriously exciting developments in the pipeline including the release of his second album.
Not only a talented producer, Matt is also a fine selector, conveying his passion for music through DJ sets that pay homage to the sound and culture’s rich history as much as they showcase the freshest cuts of sonic innovation from himself and his contemporaries. He has hit spots all around the world to assault soundsystems with bass-fuelled beats and positive vibes, including recent gigs with vocal collaborator Cian Finn at the legendary Subdub and Tokyo Dub events, as well as trips as far afield as Moscow and Johannesburg. Catch Matt bringing heat to a series of festivals this summer including Outlook and Boomtown, and with a landmark tour yet to be announced, there is plenty to look forward to on the horizon.
===== [about Serendubity Festival] =====
July 18th-20th 2014 near Berlin
Serendubity is a non-profit festival organized by a bunch of enthusiasts, who believe in grassroots democracy and in parties as a celebration of ideas and creativity instead of mere consumption.
We want to create a feeling of community in the open space with no need for walls and dissolve the borders between organizers and visitors, artists and non-artists.
We want to create an ecological festival, experimenting with creative solutions for dealing with existing problems and waste products.
We want you to participate with your ideas, skills or whatever comes along:
The word “serendipity” refers to a random encounter with something not sought for that turns out to be a new and surprising experience.
Dub is a kaleidoscope of styles, shades and sounds to us. We would like to invite you to a historic journey exploring its roots, by passing related styles (Reggae, Ska, Rocksteady, Rub A Dub, Digikal) and the sounds of roots, dub and steppas purists, merging into the modern and futurist forms of Dubstep, Jungle, Drum n Bass and Trap. Our journey follows the principle of Serendipity: you will also find balkan sounds, string quartets or samba bands on your way past the different floors. All of our floors and stages will form a platform to young and regional artists and give space for exchange with artists from all over the world.
[workshops & performances]
We want to give you the possibility to get active, create, experiment, speak up, argue, try and take a chance. Our main focus in workshops and performances are the borders between body and environement. Upcycling and Urban Gardening Workshops are asking for your creative activism, while Yoga or Contact Impro challenge your body. Performances such as puppet theater or dance will inspire you and make you move your body and social strucutres in creative ways.
[rise up events & projects]
With Rise-up events all around Berlin, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the UK we are warming up for summer and celebrating that days are getting longer again. Each night offers a different theme and focus and invites you to take part in our way towards Serendubity 2014.
From April to June our deco team is creating the art and installations for our festival, together with a lot of volunteers. Share your ideas and experience as an artist, painter, carpenter, sculpturor or tailor with us in open work sessions.
Or take part in our talks and presentations on recycling, upcycling, environmental consciousness and the ecological challenges produced by festivals.
