KONTRAVOID (ex-crystal castles)

May 4, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 2:00 am


May 4th

Something Cold is very excited to welcome Toronto’s masked EBM producer, Kontravoid back to Detroit alongside Grand Rapid’s Lost System.

KONTRAVOID is the brainchild of Cameron Findlay (Ex-CRYSTAL CASTLES, Ex-PARALLELS). The name belongs on a limited run cassette circa 1980-something, the type of tape buried in lost upstate dustbins of analogue electronics, wedged between CABARET VOLTAIRE and DAS DING. The dark Industrial and New Wave influences are strong on Findlay’s new project: His voice is scary, like an echoing underwater growl – but the underlying pop melodies always afford a degree of breathing room.

LOST SYSTEM was formed in the latter half of 2015 and has been creating new material at a very quick pace since. They demonstrate a mature sound with a focus on songwriting rather than playing shows. Each member brings a unique presence to the band and a wide variety of influences including Factory Records style Post-punk, 80’s Goth, New Wave, and Hardcore Punk. In addition to the cassette release, they will also be releasing a 7” on Neck Chop Records later this year. When the original keyboardist, Matthew Maier, moved to Austin, Nicholas Alock filled the void by taking over on synthesizer

SOMETHING COLD DJs will spin minimal-synth, industrial, wave and ebm records before, between and after the performances.
