We are thrilled to announce the release of Aris’ debut EP CAKE. Ever since the last acting in concert events, we were looking for new ways to present our work in a more continuous manner and to tighten the bonds with artists. The idea of founding a label was somehow always present. With Aris’ debut, it all fell into place, and we couldn’t be happier to celebrate the first EP release of acting in concert.

Ari, formerly known as Doll Face, Dorothy Parker, was a resident DJ for the Cry Baby series at the Institut für Zukunft in Leipzig, and began producing music after moving to Berlin in 2018. Two performances resulted from their collaboration with choreographer Francisco Baños Diaz and dancer Luke Fierce. Ari produced the music for both pieces, which were presented at Galerie für zeitgenössische Kunst Leipzig and Balance Club/ Culture Festival 2020.

In the same spirit, CAKE celebrates different artistic positions and genres coming together. For each of the four tracks of their debut EP, Ari invited a guest artist. Among them are old and new friends like rappers Lamb Kebab and baby punk. Their lyrics complete the four different tracks. Acid, ballroom and elements of grime are merged with sounds of thunder and Molotov cocktails to form new narratives. CAKE celebrates our daily uprising – it is a radical and emotional manifesto and furious liberation.

The release of Andras_2020 debut EP Cuerpo Temperamental is the second EP release for the young online label acting in concert from the Ruhr area in Germany. Have a listen if you want! You can stream it on all platforms, but it's best to buy the EP on Bandcamp if you like it, simply because that's where the artists get robbed the least. In any case, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Andras_2020, also known as Igor Meneses, is a Brazilian music producer, vocalist and dancer based in Düsseldorf, Germany. Since its beginning, their creative work has spiraled between performance and music in a broad sense, but it was only in 2018 that they stepped into the world of music production. Since then Andras has composed two soundtracks for dance pieces from the collective Not Fabulous and released their work in three editions of the Mutants Mixtape and on acting in concert`s Fragile Solidarities compilation. Together with Angel Demon and Ygor Bahia, Andras_2020 founded the collective Maze Recordings.

On their debut release, Andras_2020 makes Cuerpo Temperamental their own sound universe. Featuring 7 tracks and explicit lyrics, the EP combines the most diverse of musical influences – from hyperpop and baile funk to neo-perreo. Queer empowerment, sex and healing in apocalyptic times, are themes that create the work's narrative and float over the melodies and extravagant percussion of Andras_2020. The release is a Latin-experimental celebration of transformation and a collection of tracks to dance and sing to.

Fragile Solidarities

With this compilation, our goal is to support locals in the Ruhr area who do anti-racist work and community-building for bpoc and queers. The Ruhr area is one of the poorest areas of Germany and at the same time its biggest metropolitan center. A lot of people in anti-racist and queer-feminist work do this in extremely precarious circumstances and suffer from separation to stable communities, structures, and safer spaces for bpoc and queers, additionally, funds for this have been massively cut in the last couple of years. Like most areas outside major cities, scenes that offer protection from normative and state violence are arising tentatively, the pervasive precariousness of the situation makes it difficult to connect and organize with each other. This is why we would like to donate all the proceeds, not only to organizations that do activist work which has a public impact, but also to groups that create safer spaces for bpoc and queers.

100% of the money made will go to Sunrise Dortmund, Antirassismustelefon Essen, PoC AG TU Dortmund, Migrantifa NRW, atelier automatique and curl collective.

We hope you like the compilation and that there´s something in it for everybody. Much love for all those who made the compilation possible and thanks to everyone for supporting the cause and fighting for what is right in whatever way they can.
