City Splits is a new series presented by Monika Enterprise. Whereas Monika's 4 Women No Cry series is designed to unite artists divided geographically, City Splits will instead focus on one city and present two of the most exciting new musicians from that scene. Berlin was a logical choice for the 1st installment, hand-picked by Gudrun Gut: two interesting female musicians/producers who live and work in the German capital. Golden Diskó Ship aka Theresa Stroetges started playing songs live on her laptop since the moment she first arrived in Berlin in 2007. The sound sculptress has quickly become renowned for her imaginative blend of fragile balladry, novel use of found objects, crunchy distortion, quirky visuals and squealing bits that suggest horrific drum machine abuse. Her uniquely chaotic and original music with magnificently swirling sounds has fast made Golden Diskó Ship a favorite of the Berlin underground-indie scene. Jasmine Guffond aka Jasmina Maschina is a celebrated Australian electronic musician who relocated to Berlin from Sydney in 2003 with her band MINIT. Over the last 10 years Jasmine has been recording and performing with MINIT, exhibiting sound installations, and developing works of varied scope based on the use of processed acoustic, electronic, and found sound sources. Equally interested in song, composition and free, improvised music, as Jasmina Maschina has further developed her studio recordings with musicians Theresa Stroetges (guitar, viola, glockenspiel, high hat, zither) and Steve Heather (drums on "City Fever"). The song "Ausland" originates from a live solo electronic performance at Ausland Club in Berlin, then developed into a variation of "Slow Walker," a song from her album Demolition Series. With a trip to L.A. already planned for #2, City Splits offers a fresh take on the urban musical landscape.
