Flieder (ZH) – Band
Over the past ten years, FLIEDER has assembled their own musical world, building on a solid trip-hop and post-rock foundation. As did their heroes of the 90s, FLIEDER has dedicated itself to the instrumental genre and stuck with their devotion through two studio records in 2010 and 2014, respectively, as well as a live EP recorded with the FLIEDER ENSEMBLE. Their newest releases PARIA & NOW mark FLIEDER’s coming of age. Not only Thomas and Thomas did take their time to develop and unfold the new tracks for years; but also because the two musicians expanded their agency to taking over the engineering and production on top of performing on all their various instruments, all the while striving for an ever deeper connection as musical partners and long-time friends. As followers of this somewhat peculiar band will have experienced before, FLIEDER’s music is as organic as the lilac tree the band name translates to.
Manuel Fischer (ZH) – DJ
Manuel is melodious and colorful. His subtle (often whimsical) take on House music explores the boundaries of the genre - from the dreamy and atmospheric to the playful and jazzy, the uplifting and anthemic to the dark and paranoiac. A classically trained musician, illustrator, and taste-maker, Manuel also curates the Miteinander Musik record label together with his childhood friends from Zurich.
