Tom-Tom Club meets NICA feat. Sonae, Blint & Nikita von Tiraspol

What is a city, a scene or a club without its local DJs? The Tom-Tom Club series dedicates itself to local heroes, offering them a well-outfitted stage and DJ booth in the shimmering splendor of the new homespot JAKI. Tom-Tom Club is an open space for exchange, discovery, and unlimited genre-free body-music adventures — in short, your new favorite club night.

Every Saturday night, from 23:00 until late— all music lovers, dancers, listeners, freaks, and non-freaks are welcome!

Sonae is an electronic music artist based in Cologne. Her critical concept-work connects the dots between Djing, music production, video, writing, and others, exploring electronic music as an artform that points beyond itself. Since 2012 Sonae has been releasing music with labels like A Strangely Isolated Place, laaps or Gudrun Gut's imprint Monika Enterprise where she is part of the label's collective Monika Werkstatt as much. She received the master degree of Institut für Populäre Musik at Folkwang University of Arts, a Women in Computer Music Scholarship of CCRMA at Stanford University, and an artist residency of NICA artist development program at the European Center for Jazz and Contemporary Music. Sonae played venues such as IfZ /Leipzig, Meakusma Festival /Eupen, Ausland /Berlin, Fusion Festival, Cafe Oto /London and on the same bill with people like Squarepusher, Plaid, Darkstar, Kyoka, Frank Bretschneider, Tim Exile.

Blint is the artistname of Felix Nisblé. He is a DJ and Producer living and working in Berlin. In 2015 he founded Blintmusik a fully DIY Imprint for his musical output, which saw four releases so far. His style is oscillating between various forms of Techno, from Detroit to Berlin, Breakbeat to Electro, with audible roots in 90's Hip Hop Beats. A close friend once described his style as 'Kapuzenpulli-Techno' (Techno wearing a Hoodie). His music gained some first attention and was heavily supported by artists like Umwelt, Norman Nodge, Johannes Volk or Helena Hauff. In 2014 Felix joined the masterclass Populäre Musik at the Folkwang University of Arts under the supervision of Hans Nieswandt. In this course he met three fellow musicians, with whom he formed the Band Tired Eyes Kingdom. The band released their debut record in 2017 and was performing live on Festivals like c/o Pop, Modular Festival and Sacred Ground. In 2019 Felix left the band to focus on his labelwork. He has been djing for over ten years in Clubs all over Germany, from Hamburg to Leipzig and had appearances at Festivals like Fusion, Pollerwiesen and Docklands.

Nikita von Tiraspol is a DJ, producer and label head of Kontrapunkt, closely affiliated to Leipzig, currently based in Cologne. "My musical background is a classical and jazzy one but as soon as I moved to Leipzig and started to experience the first techno parties all the trumpet and piano lessons were forgotten." Working for r.a.n.d. muzik as a vinyl pressing engineer for many years, he was able to listen to new
unreleased music every day. In 2017 von Tiraspol started the label Kontrapunkt releasing music from techno to electronic free-jazz and noise to ambient, tribal, house and breakbeat. Besides he's been releasing his own music and the albums First Draws via Kontrapunkt (2018), Was Lucifer More Beautiful Than Adonis? with Noorden (2019), Entscheidungen on mystictrax (2021). With a selection ranging from techno to house, breakbeat, ambient – sometimes also indie, post rock or hip hop –, Nikita von Tiraspol has been DJing for many years at places like Distillery/Leipzig, Afrikaburn/South Africa and Yaga/Lithuania.
