Hallo: Hippocampus – Part 1
Our minds are heavy, but the pumps are still running at full speed, because there is a lot to do and some unanswered questions. The month of August is dedicated to processing and digestion, and therefore plans are being made for festivities: from 25th – 28th August. the Hallo: Festival 2022 will take place on the site of the Bille Rowing Association, which is also threatened with displacement. To this end, we cordially invite everyone to join us in decorating the next abyss. For one weekend the area will be transformed into a park of fun with musical as well as performative performances. Next to the clubhouse comes the radio kiosk “Auf Der Grünen Wiese”. On the water lies a floating stage, where the banks of the Bille become the threshold between Rimini and Ibiza. A rain sculpture twists the flow direction of the Elbe’s arm and the aquatic beings of the area – as well as from far away – are summoned to make an appearance and stand by us.
One thing is certain: we will not let the tap be turned off, the Kraftwerk Bille remain the shared, the community.
We do not say goodbye but shark
Sincerely your sharks from Hallo: e.V.

Longtime Hallo: Radio Friend Semi Nice opens the Hallo: Festival with delicate references and raw fusions to eclectically fill the aural space. What can be felt as temporary textures leave an echo of emotional mindfulness that will provide us with the breeding ground for the following hours.

Nika Son works as a musician, artist, film composer, DJ and curator.
Her compositions consist of modified and fragmented field recordings interwoven with analog synthesis, broken rhythms, rare vocal snippets, and modulated tape. As a DJ, her idiosyncratic sound ranges from musique concrète and early electronics to synth wave, industrial, noise, downtempo and techno.
As F#X, the musician and DJ has been active in the electronic and experimental music scene around Hamburg's Golden Pudel Club for more than a decade, setting his musical core in the correspondence of machines, shaped by tapes and tubes, fed by algorithmic sequences.
Their joint project is Cwelle (formerly C). Spatial textures, granular synthesis, abstract percussion, breakbeat, frozen sound, disjointed voices. The first EP was released on the Hamburg label VIS.
The Bad Boy Jesus City Swimmers Club is the kind of club Jesus would have loved to be a member of. It is a fluid entity. If you can't get into the same river twice, how will you grasp the essence of the BBJCSC, which is constantly changing?
The investor will gently push you into a sea of sounds where words flow like driftwood. You will have to swim for yourself.
Snakedance from the HALLO Radio Team and part of the Zepter Crew from Dresden in united forces with Tussn, Dreiländereck-Import and Perle from the Golden Pudel Club. Together they take a trip underwater and onto the yacht. Experimental swimming and grandeur on a deck chair. Between gray water and blue sky, the two play into the duet of eclectic gradients, shaking the dew from goosebumps and freshly covering the clouds.
plastiq is a trio that has existed since 2016. Improvising with voice, synthesizer, beats and acoustic instruments such as mbira and violin, the group explores the interface between acoustic and synthetic sounds. At a plastiq live happening, music is created that is strongly influenced by the nature of the space and the given setting. It challenges the listening habits and spatial orientation of the audience. The trio often collaborates with other art genres. Video and film, installation, storytelling, performance and theater are part of the platform on which plastiq members develop and articulate their diverse interests. When plastiq allow the improvised, the insofar chaotic, they make utopia possible. plastiq are Raphaela Andrade Cordova, Lena Geue, Luka Lenzin.
With the fall of the apartheid-era in South Africa rose new opportunities for the before oppressed population. This gave space to kwaito, a celebrating music genre mainly cultivated by the black population. Sandy B, who was not more than 17 at the time, had a local hit in 1995 with his ep Amajovi Jovi. During the following decades he would move actively within the local music scene and touch a variety of genres including afro-pop, deep house, R'n'B and Soul.
In the mid 2010's around 20 years since its release crate diggers and DJ's across Europe and North America discovered Amajovi Jovi and started dropping tracks from the album. In late 2017 the album was reissued on Canadian label, Invisible City Editions giving a new lease of life to a forgotten classic and giving this once little known artist an international reputation.
In the light of this new breakthrough Sandy B released the album Qhum Qhaks in 2019 which followed up on the success of Amajovi Jovi. In that context he co-founded the record label Vumbuka Records alongside Simon Lundsgaard, the producer of Qhum Qhaks.

The project Xenofolk is a congenial clash of the two Bucharest artists Suce Fraga & Ion D.

For more than a decade Alexander Dorn has shaken electronic sounds, stirring shapes and forms as credit 00 that adhere to few genre tags. Being sonically socialized through Hip Hop in the 1990s, Graffiti and Breakdance were the first outlets for his creativity, music dominating his daily life since a young age. It was through Hip Hop Culture that he realized that you don't need a degree or know how to play an instrument to create your own music. Inspired by the US Ghetto music of the 80s his journey to explore the endless universe of sound had kicked off. Leading him through many phases of musical preferences: Classic Electro, Reggae Dancehall, Italo Disco, Chicago House, Detroit Techno, New Wave or Ghettotech... After concentrating on numerous styles his mission became to combine different influences in DJing and production. Music without genre and boundaries is also the concept of his label Rat Life Records, since 2014 it has been a platform for his own output and those of like-minded artists. Having released many EPs, Compilations and Collaborations on Labels like Uncanny Valley, Chiwax, June, Nation, Bordello A Parigi or Pinkman and especially his 2017 debut album "Game Over" show the many voices of an open minded artist. Even now Credit 00 is always on the look out for the unknown and seeks to challenge the listener and himself rather than fulfill expectations.
