Our (Fiete Rohdes and Michael Kandels) first audio-visual output under our new moniker YONA.
The footage was produced by BLÆNK MINDS as part of a club video workshop and edited by us on a far too tiny notebook.
The video was already screened in OHM and in Hering Gallery Space on Potsdamer Straße thanks to Thea & Kristian.
There are new tracks to come in 2018!
Until then have fun with this first one.
It was THE off location during Web Summit 2017 in Lisboa. Art installations, visuals, rooftop bar and house party. Well selected artists and a group of friends from Berlin & Lisboa coming together to compose 5 nights to remember.
One of our highlight releases on Poker Flat in 2012 truly was the new output from label boss Steve Bug, who teamed up with German producer and long time friend Langenberg for the Chord Cluster EP. Now their track The Tease was expanded to a visual dimension. The Berlin-based collective Blaenk Minds works for a few years now on adding a visual experience to the process of listening to music and dancing in the club. Within the scope of a Workshop in this summer, they crafted the music video for Steve Bug and Langenberg. It's about materiality, the play with forms and movement and the influence of colors. All objects used are hand crafted from designer Stefanie Hering.
Smash TV + Blaenk Minds + Esmod Clubvideo
This is the second collaboration between Blaenk Minds and Smash TV. Only this time we all turned our head towards the creative field of fashion, bringing in the Esmod Fashion Design School Berlin. A selection of students where allowed to wrap their years work around Models and have them perform in front of the camera. A great concept that delivered great Footage. But then we had to admit that the visual focus of this collaboration became very fashion-centered so we had to tone it down a bit again. Addeing a visual and flashy layer brought it back to the club again, where it now works amazingly.
Blaenk Minds is a DJ Duo producing a clubvideo for every track they play: At night they are mixing these Audio-Video Tracks at the club. Its not a music video. Clubvideos are projected in a club through projectors or LED panels while the music shoots through the speakers. They are visually strong, darker, flashy and the picture sits perfectly on the beat. All this is important in order to support and enhance the atmosphere of the club. Another important cornerstone of clubvideos are creative collaborations.
