Two synthesisers, one microphone. Pounding disco beats under rattling bass sequences. A sound with roots in Italo disco, new wave and punk, combined with the electroclash of the noughties: Dina Summer breaks with sluggish conventions and catapults us directly into a new era of dark disco. Behind Dina Summer are Kalipo, who as a member and producer of the electro-punk band Frittenbude has been working the big and small stages of Germany for more than a decade, and DJ duo Local Suicide, who have been touring clubs worldwide for years, consisting of Munich’s Max Brudi aka Brax Moody and the Greek Dina aka Vamparela, who gives the trio a voice with an unmistakable accent in spoken word – sometimes in English, sometimes Greek, sometimes German. Together, they create a beguiling stage presence whether in the club or at a festival.
