The aim of the project is to  champion local independent music scenes and  to forge a world sound map of avant garde and  new pop. The next STONE ISLAND PRESENTS event took place at Wilhelm Hallen, the  former Winkelhof iron foundry, now a vast  post-industrial space for Berlin’s creative community. It was settled for six unique performances by Beatrice Dillon, Bill Kouligas, KMRU, Lorenzo Senni, Pelada and Skee Mask. 

Berlin based artist, designer and musician Bill Kouligas, the founder and artistic director of the celebrated multidisciplinary platform and record label PAN. He joined by PAN label mates, the London based artist and music producer Beatrice Dillon who was declared “the most thrilling  new voice in British electronic music” by The  Guardian at the end of 2019 and the Canadian group, Pelada. The duo, composed of vocalist  Chris Vargas and instrumentalist Tobias  Rochman will bring their unique brand of punk and politics to the dancefloor. They are joined by Lorenzo Senni, the Warp Records Italian  experimental musician and visual artist best  known for his “pointillistic trance”, a signature  sound involving the deconstruction of epic  build-ups and synthesizer arpeggios of ‘90s  trance and hard techno. Skee Mask AKA Bryan  Müller and Kenian artist KMRU complete the line up. Born in Nairobi and currently based in  Berlin, KMRU is a sound artist and producer  whose methods include field recording,  improvisation, noise, machine learning, radio  art and drones. Skee Maskthe genre-melding  Munich producer brings his “thrillingly physical”  music that merges the “disparate continents  of drum’n’bass, footwork, techno, electro, and  downbeat” (Pitchfork).
