Currently on a European tour with several festival dates, NYC “sleep-house” duo Teengirl Fantasy will make a Berlin stop at Naherholung Sternchen on July 20 with a live set, previewing material from their upcoming third album Tracer (their first for veteran electronic label R&S, featuring guest spots from Panda Bear of Animal Collective, Romanthony and Laurel Halo).
Support comes from fellow Brooklynite Fatima Al Qadiri, playing an exclusive German date and one of only two European shows scheduled. Recording under her birth name as well as Ayshay (for witchy label Tri Angle), Al Qadiri takes the Islamic influences of her early life in Senegal and Iraq and combines it with a fascination of Western pop culture for an alienated, often haunting effect. Since Al Qadiri also keeps busy as a visual artist and contributor to DIS Magazine, it’s a rare opportunity to see her perform live.
DJ support comes from Joey Hansom (who produced the recent Alexander Geist single and has remixed Light Asylum and SSION), Clay Hooves (a recent Berlin transplant from Edinburgh via Brooklyn) and of course, the evening’s mastermind Shameless/Limitless.
