O Berlin Manson
Bratislava-Košice project Berlin Manson connects strict DIY aesthetics and (synth)punk vibe with contemporary trap. The production of Berlin Manson began at the time of an incipient pandemic, on March 13, with a song published by the collective Art Association Košická 37 – Sa Neboy. Its detached autotune recital can only be seen as a very successful recession. It grew into compositionally tighter tracks Why are all Bratislava punks suddenly doing trap and Did someone with the name Walter Disney ever live?
Berlin Manson sing and rap about Depeche Mode, spaceships and soundcloud trends, drowning in waves of melancholic synthesizers, but their sound and attitudes are not only about unlimited fun. They have the ability to update the post-synth punk sound, move on the strange border between analog and digital and comment on the scene with an ironic grin, but at the same time be a fresh part of it in the form of an unexpected system error. Berlin Manson is proof of complete genre, production and attitude freedom, without trying to fit into a pre-given image or fit in somewhere for one hundred percent.
