80’s Immersed is een nieuw concept waarbij je ondergedompeld wordt in de muziek, sfeer en cultuur van de 80’s. Geen herhaling en oppervlakkigheid, maar een ode aan een groot spectrum aan muziekstromingen en subculturen uit de 80’s. Door op onderzoek uit te gaan en liefhebbers, kenners en ervaringsdeskundigen te betrekken bij het concept, kunnen we een boeiend en avondvullend programma opzetten met oog voor details en sfeer. Door liefhebbers, voor liefhebbers.

De derde editie staat geheel in het teken van Hiphop en Electro.

Line up: DJ Sueside + Bart Hard + Nix Master Narc

DJ Sueside is een van de belangrijkste hip hop dj’s in Tilburg en is wereldwijd bekend. Hij heeft opgetreden in meer dan 40 verschillende landen en grote feesten gegeven in Europa, Australië, Azië en Amerika. Nog nooit was er een Europese hiphop DJ met meer internationale optredens en slechts een handjevol Amerikanen deden hetzelfde. En nog steeds is DJ Sueside niet klaar en zijn lijst met clubs en landen groeit nog steeds! In het jaar 2001 werd DJ Sueside gecontracteerd door The RZA nadat hij hem aan het werk had gezien bij een showcase van Killa Beez member Cilvaringz. Sindsdien is DJ Sueside de officiële live DJ van Wu-Tang Clan leden als The RZA, Raekwon, Cilvaringz, Masta Killa en diverse Killa Beez. Voor 80’s Immersed gaat hij terug naar wat hij het liefst doet: oldschool hip hop en electro.

Bart Hard is sinds 2000 actief als dj in diverse break gereleateerde muziek met optredens in o.a. Engeland, Zwitserland, Oostenrijk, Duitsland en België. Hij heeft op het podium gestaan op feesten waar o.a. Mark N. (DMC Champion), Hellfish (Deathchant) en The DJ Producer draaiden, Naast zijn bekendheid in de hardcore is een van zijn andere liefdes oldschool hip hop.. uiteraard met vinyl.

Nix Master Narc aka Kounsokiri is eveneens langere tijd actief in Tilburg en omgeving, naast het initieren van diverse concepten waaronder 80s Immersed is hij actief als producer, vj en dj. Oldschool hip hop en electro is wat vanavond van zijn hand zal komen.

The Art Of Breakcore part 2 will be on january 18th, 2014 in the Hall of Fame, Tilburg.This edition there will be debates about positive changes people can make together to create a better world.

There will be a panel of speakers that will tell why they do what they do and how they think what will be a possible future of life as we know it. Is the book 1984 by George Orwell the definitive future? Will there be one gigacompany that will rule our food supply forever? Or is there a way to a different future?

The music & visual program will give a reflection on the themes of the debate and the deeper view that art can give (as concluded during the the panel discussion of The Art Of Breakcore 1).


line up:

Suburban Trash Industries

Noize Creator is one of the most inspiring breakcore producers by releasing a diversity of music with his own productions and running multiple labels with a cutting edge sound within the electronic underground. His first steps into music production were back in 1991 while he was mixing music with the use of tapedecks. Soon after, he got interested in techno, and started djing at illegal parties. In 1994 he started to make music within the hardcore underground circuit, with releases on Juncalor Records, Rage Records, Blood ‘n’ Guts, Killing Rate, Surgeon16 and his own hardcore label Brutal Chud. One of the most memorable highlights was under the alias Kingz of Noize, of which the record was released on the Drop Bass Network sublabel Six Sixty Six. In 1998 he started his new label Suburban Trash Industries, which held a great diversity of important electronic music releases.


Hypnoskull emerged as a project of Patrick Stevens in 1992, who combines the power of pure analog electronics with harsh rhythm structures to form an anarchic assault of noise and techno-industrial. After years of underground activism in the worldwide electronic underground network of industrial music, Hypnoskull reached a larger audience by putting out the album ‘Rythmusmaschine 1-2’ (1998), followed by ‘Ffwd>Burnout!'(1999) and ‘Electronic Music Means War To Us’ (2001). Before that, Stevens also made a name as one half of the duo Sonar, a hardcore Belgian rhythmical industrial project.

Little Brutal Rave Bastards / Blut

Jean Bach has been active since 1996, with releases on Fischkopf Hamburg, Dhyana Records and Stichting Mixer amongst others.
His style is variating from pop ambient to harsh tekkno and noise oriented breakbeat. Beside his music projects he is a creative person who makes magazines in non existing languages and in search of the unknown territories of art. He released under many different aliasses including Anti-Zen, Leprozid Pfarrhaus, Mortobello Steriland the new project of Raketenbasis Haberlandstrasse. Out of the many different projects one is Leprozid Strick/Pfahl which he released a split release with Ad Absurdum on the Hamburg label Blut, as well as different tracks on the Little Brutal Rave Bastards series.
For The Art Of Breakcore he will prepare a raw set with his obscure sounds as Leprozid Strick/Pfahl.

RIOTEER (Tilburg)
Crack Beats

Rioteer is the brainchild of Bas Welling and hails from Tilburg Crackcity. Blending styles like Breakcore, Chiptune, 8 bit, Noise, Industrial, and Deviant Hardcore, he has been responsible for promoting the ruff uncompromising edge of sound in Holland and abroad and he is one of the most booked artist in this area of sound.
Rioteer played around the globe at festivals like Breakcore gives me WOOD, Jason Forrests Wasted festival, Q-Base 2010, Todays Art, Gogbot Festival, Bloodnok Festival Tour Russia, The ZXZW Festival, Mayhem Outdoors Hardcore Festival.

BART HARD (Tilburg)
Not Your Monkey Not Your Robot

Bart Hard is specialised in underground music.
With his dj sets he made a international reputation with bookings in Berlin, Dresden, Zürich, Kloten, Graz, Gent, Nijmegen, Arnhem, Nottingham and more.
His style is known as pushing the limites of a genre, with extreme electronix, but also playing different styles under the aliasses of Bart Acid, DJ Hartpumper and DJ Of The Second Moon to name a few alter egos.
After organising many different events in the range of breakcore, noise, speedcore, industrial and many more since 2001, he’s now focussed on the new event series The Art Of Breakcore, in the hope to make a positive change to the world, and look for what’s beyond art/music itself, when activism and underground culture meet to reach a higher level.

Pétrifié (Fr)
Micro Death Metal
>>> à écouter

Micro Death – Petrified was first formed in 2000 as a death metal band…
in 2001 the band ceased to exist as such and Julien (guitars) carried on as a solo project.
Petrified delivers an intense and murderous metal riffing propelled by high speed drum machine sequences.
Using industrial techno sounds and classical death grind patterns, pétrifié offers either nice melodic and
emotional songs or blistering technical brutal death tracks…the result is a tiny but devastating metal machinery
that brings death metal and grind core on an experimental field!
He is also a resident of the Pavillon Sauvage, well-know active and underground place in Toulouse city.

Mental D-struction (Fr/Be)
Deviant Electronic
>>> à écouter

Deviant Electronic – Alloy polymorphic of atmospheres and ultrabeats, dense textures that flirt with the classic,
noisy rythms coming from speed-break, as well as industrial and cyber music.
A fusion of the extremes taken in a gradual pace. Here we dive or we finally lost his bearings!
Active since 2006, the project has quickly made a place within the microcosm of radical electronic music. Label-owner of the
Wildness netlabel, she is present in many projects, and not only electronics.
For this 2013 tour, expect injection of some news in the program, resampling of the past to win some potential for a true live-act,
and everything ‘ll be diffused with the support of pictures and movies, enought to be sure to vary the fun.


wolf eyes

Salon Brut is a new program-initiative from  Willemeen (Arnhem, east Netherlands) to dig up and show the more obscure spectrum of music. Sounds that doesn’t fit in a particular genre or  are too foggy to describe properly. In any case acts that operate in a remote area of the music scene; the extreme other end of R&B. Appropriate words to describe Salon Brut are: Absurdity, hard to handle, funny, weird, noisy, challenging.

Wednesday the 17th of April marks the first edition of Salon Brut with amazing headliner Wolf Eyes!

Wolf Eyes
Some say Rock N Roll will never reach the same primitive raw vein hit of Bo Diddley at his more subhuman lurch or no unit can ever scramble the marbles left of what brain boiling suburban electronic punk outsiders did in the mid 70′s: Whatever you think, there is no denying the homemade nuclear war Wolf Eyes has left on music. Wolf Eyes was birthed in the shadows by a few liked minded individuals: Nate Young, Aaron Dilloway and John Olson in the late 90′s in Michigan. However, Wolf Eyes has become more than band, but a collective mutant ensemble, an art abstraction unit: musicians, print makers, photographers and more, all who share a primal shadowy vision of decoding the wilderness into the soul of humanoid from the deep audio arsenals.

You can listen to Wolf Eyes’ new album ”No Answer: Lower Floors” on Pitchfork Advance.

Support act will be Vrienden van de Duitse KeukenBelchsingersonggrinderSurd ZillahBart Hard, NeurobitSvartvit and everything will be complimented with visuals from Erik Maes.

The Art Of Breakcore is a wake up call for the rawer, experimental side of ‘breakcore’ that is not just about dance music, but more focussed on experiment, breaking borders and reaching (political) consciousness.

There will be a debate about how art & politix influence each other. Main theme of the debate will be about music/art and politix/activism, but will also be about themes connected to this. For the ones that are interested in more background information, there will be info stands of activist groups, but also record stands for those who want to know more about the music that’s represented during the night.

From 21.00h the second part of the night will start when international artists, invited by Bart Hard, will show their vision on breakcore. There will also be visuals that will reach back to the themes of the debate and beyond.


In the early ’90’s breakcore developed out of the 80’s & 90’s industrial, punk, hardcore breakbeats and noise. Some called the phenomenon ‘digital hardcore’, others preferred the term ‘breakcore’, or named it ‘electronix’.
In all different developements influenced by things happening in the world as well as developements within the music itself, breakcore changed through the years into a broad spectrum of diversity. Some of the developements continued and others almost ceased to exist.
Within the breakcore there are many obscure subgenres that always found just small attention, but were actually revolutionary.
Labels like Widerstand Records, Trash Tapes and later also Phantomnoise, Seven Samuari Records and Formosan gave interesting views with combining industrial, political / society consciousness and riot sounds on their releases.
Event series like Utterly Wipe Out broke the barriers between noise, speedcore and breakcore, while other crews focussed more on jungle, rave and later dubstep.
Through the years the first catagory seems to became obscure, so we decided to bring back a bit of the ideals that lived back then.

During this night we have a special line up of artists that show their vision on the art of breakcore each in their unique way.

Alexander Dreyhaupt aka Worlds Ab-Art, mainly known under his breakcore moniker aleXdee (but worked also as Hagbard Celine or Amiga Squawk Tones) is the founder of Trash Tapes & Phantomnoise Records. Besides he is Co-Founder of the “100% Fakecore Networt” and the “Strukturbruch Events” in Leipzig, Germany along with LXC of Alphacut Records.
He released his first tapes back in 1994, inspired by digital hardcore, gabba and punk music from that time.
Through the years he developed his sound and finally had chance to release his first vinyl “Wer Sich Wehrt Ist Lebendig” in 1998 on the Austrian label Widerstand Records. Right after that he founded his own vinyl label Phantomnoise Records, which was, the very last “Label of the Month” on John Peel Show in Oktober 2004, only two weeks before Peel died.
After that, Phantomnoise stopped releasing on a regular basis and Alexdee spend five years mostly with his radio show “The Fakecore Show” and various other projects.
On this event he will give a special dj performance. Don’t expect some catchy danceable set or a faked live act with some ready to play mp3 file on a sexy laptop, but a kind of real stinky vinyl set turntablism without any turntablism (he’s just too lazy and inapt for that). A small, condensed noisy history of phantomnoise and all related fakecore.
Bon appétit & Bon voyage!

Le Rouage Lytique, formerly known as Cocktail Lytique, is the mastermind behind the Geräuschinfusion, Utterly Wipe Out and Lacerated Fragments event series in Berlin.
As Orange he’s been active as a (web)designer, and photographer for a long time within the left wing Berlin scene, one of his main projects is
He’s been active as a dj since the 90’s, under names as Sahid Rouage, Jimmi Rocket and Kathinka Rouage, developing from industrial music to noise and breakcore but also queerbeat, and as producer / live act Cocktail Lytique / Le Rouage Lytique with extreme breakcore sounds without compromise.

Unfortunately dj Fobia had to cancel her booking, but we will definately book her in the future again.
As replacement for Fobia we have one of most forward thinking breakcore artists: Nano.strike (Ketacore / Not Your Monkey Not Your Robot, Netherlands).

Nano.strike is a project started up in 2004. The primarily styles are Breakcore, Industrial and Tekno, but also stuff like Noise, Ambient, Fieldrecording, Acid, Gabber, Elektro and Synthesizer Music finds it’s way into the work. Through the years he performed live at many partys amongst others: Lacerated Fragments (Berlin), Ketacore (Amsterdam), Q-Base (Weeze), Crack Beats (Tilburg), Not Your Monkey Not Your Robot (Arnhem) and Kabaal Digitaal (Wageningen). On 22 december he will play a rough breakcore set.

An other special announcement is the art performance of Levi van Huygevoort (Garden of Eyes).
Multi-talented artist Levi van Huygevoort invented his own “Live Art Performance”, a new one-man wave of crazy live art shows in which Levi creates a piece of live art within any amount of time. Often creatively intense but always an entertaining, mind-bending or eye-opening experience, this is a happening you should see. For this special occasion, Levi van Huygevoort will co-operate with dj Bart Hard, as they will synchronise each other’s performance/set in music and art.
As closing set of the night, this performance/dj set co-operation will symbolise a glimpse of a possible future society.

Bart Hard is active since 12 years within the underground circuit, as dj as well as organisator. He is co-founder of event series such as Not Your Monkey Not Your Robot, but also likes to work on various other projects. His current project is ‘The Art Of Breakcore’. For this event he decided to bring artists, individuals and local organizations together that inspired him through the years. Bart Hard will play the closing set of the night when breakcore reaches it’s climax until it breaks down into a field of experimental soundscapes and unheard melodies, together with the live art performance of Levi van Huygevoort.

Before the event itself, people have chance to debate about politix, noise, breakcore and the way these things work out together.

The theme of the debate will be about art/music & politix/activism, individualism vs group movements in political activism as well as music scenes, how movements move to the ‘middle’ and losing ideals (left wing politix turn middle politix to get more votes, underground scenes go popular to get more audience) ad the being against somethig while not showing what you do stand for

There will be info stands of activist groups Weldaad, AFA Nederland, Anarchistische Groep Nijmegen and info/bookstore Opstand.

From 21.00h and on there will be music played by the artists who will lead us through the different fields of electronic music, that together can be defined as ‘breakcore’. There will be visuals chosen by the artists and the vj’s and selected the conceptual idea behind the event.
