Having explored the vast lands of the Hardcore Continuum since the late 90ies, Ink! is interested in the connections between signal and noise, and the nuances in-between. Feeding into Techno, Rave, Bass and Dub, and often using more than just two turntables and a mixer, Ink! stirs up sets that are invitations to lose yourself in a sea of sound.
From 2007 – 2015, he ran the DIY-label “Hula Honeys”, documenting (parts of) the Swiss Electronica scene during those years. In 2015, he launched the label -OUS together with long-time affiliates Feldermelder and IOKOI, releasing electronic and experimental music by Senking, Simon Grab, Legowelt, Bit-Tuner, http://SPIME.IM, NHK yx Koyxen, Sara Oswald, Tresque, Furtherset, Hirsch&Eigner and Jan Nemecek.
Ink! is also active in various cultural projects like the mini-club Umbo and Zurich’s annual Rhizom Festival.
Ink! has shared the stages of clubs and festivals in Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Japan, China, Italy, Hungary and Latvia with acts like Mouse on Mars, Laurel Halo, Ben Frost, A Made Up Sound, Shed, Andy Stott, S S S S, The Gaslamp Killer, DJ Krush, DMX Krew, Tomaga, Dimlite, Cylob, Ceephax Acid Crew, Wisp, and Otto von Schirach.
