For the March meeting of the Berlin Ableton User Group, Distant Sun will demonstrate a dissection of one of the tracks from his forthcoming album ‘I am Distant Sun’.
Distant Sun is a Berlin based dj and electronic music producer from South Wales, Uk. As well as working as a mastering engineer and music production coach, he is also one of the co-organisers of the Berlin Ableton User group.
He has over 15 years music production experience, mostly using Ableton Live and whilst mainly beginning as a self taught producer, extended his academic knowledge of the craft by gaining a Masters degree in Music Production and Engineering. Whilst writing the Master Thesis, Distant Sun explored the connection between classical Minimalism & Techno and was particularly drawn to the political principles of atonality put forward by Arnold Schönberg and Underground Resistance.
Distant Sun was first inspired by the deep tribal Progressive sound. The percussive elements and long mix transitions became a gateway to Techno, inspiring the hypnotic repetition and polyrhythmic sequences that feature heavily in his productions and DJ sets.
Distant Sun has released music on Credo & KarateKlub labels amongst others and DJ’d in various venues in the UK, Ibiza and across Berlin.
The most recent Distant Sun productions can be heard on Spotify by following this link:

Polonius is the moniker and artistic entity channeled by Seifeldin G., musician and performer based in Milan. After dedicating many years to sound collage, soul searching, fictitious documentaries on cassette and free jazz collabos, Polonius has now taken on the task of improvised track mania machine, mixing jungle breaks and techno with his signature mysterious style.
Sofia Borges chose a risky but stimulating path: to explore, to experiment, to enlarge the established languages (be it the improvised ones or the composed by herself, with graphic notations extending the conventional writing) and the results are showing us that the art of sounds is not dead yet; far from it. She does it in two ways. One is the solo format – adding objects, some of them of her own invention, music boxes and toys to the jazz drumkit and the orchestral percussion instruments, and also analogic and digital electronic devices enabling her to process, in real time, her acoustic constructions, including in the mix a good number of field recordings. Another is the association with some of the most remarkable spontaneous noisemakers of our time, like Craig Taborn, Mat Maneri, Axel Dörner, Robyn Schulkowsky, Ignaz Schick, Ryeko Okuda, Sanem Kalfa, Michael Thieke, Cansu Tanrikulu, Chris Pitsiokos, Nick Dunston, Camila Nebbia, Stefanie Egedy just to name a few, and integrating unavoidable bands such as Pink Monads, SORBD and the trio Borges-Rainer-Dunston. The Berlin-based, but Portuguese-born inventive sound creator has the stage as her natural environment, establishing music as another of the performative arts. In this context it’s with no wonder that we find Sofia Borges in dance and theatre projects, collaborating with Alexis Blake or the collective Sounding Situations. There’s no end in sight for the investigative approaches of her playing with time and space, and that’s the key secret for her growing notability in the international scene.

Borja Caro focuses his practice on experimental electronic music. Notable among his musical projects are the Metametal and Soroastra duos and Bruxizme, which encompasses all his ‘solo’ endeavours. Since 2020, he has been working with Portuguese artist Alexandre Estrela in his studio practice, developing programming for random, generative, and automation systems for the artist’s audiovisual pieces. Most recently, he collaborated on the sound matters for Estrela’s Flat Bells, which were on display at the MoMA in New York in the last months of 2023. For this Codex Bruxizme’s performance will showcase a blend of drone and concrete music, on an improvised set that employs Frequency Modulation and Spectral Processing techniques.
eNμ is a dreamer, who’s floating in the sound matter, levitating, and combining particles and liquids. Using endless cassette loops, a multitracker & granular synthesis, eNμ invites for survey into the worlds of tiny sounds, voices and noises found in dreams, memories, affinities, places, fantasies, and imagination.

*** MIKE ***
MIKE is a quintessential old soul. The 24-year-old artist’s wisdom is evident in both his calm delivery and measured questioning, even if he doesn’t always understand the depth of his words until they’re written. “All of these random ideas come to my head, but always end up making sense after it’s done,” the NY-based rapper-producer says about his method. Known for introspective, subtly profound rhymes that explore grief, family, and identity, and melt over muffled, soul-seasoned samples, on his expansive new record Burning Desire MIKE reaches new heights far above the sonic foundation he laid with his previous project.
As MIKE’s career flourishes – already spanning numerous critically celebrated albums and tours with artists like Blood Orange, Earl Sweatshirt, The Alchemist, and Freddie Gibbs – his inner world
demands nurturing. In a noisy metropolis, it can be hard to see beyond what’s right in front you, to find stillness. “So much shit is happening on surface level, it’s hard to have some idea of external
shit outside of that,” MIKE says.
