Paola Verde

Born in Milano in the same year when punk was born, grown up among joy division and bauhaus vinyls records and Dave Mc Kean´s comic books. Then industrial music was for me like the sound of a crashed window in the stillness of an  abandoned factory. The city-borders have always been the center of my personal research, from street art to dismessed industries, from underground culture to the metamorphose of metropolis. Photographer, art curator, urban explorer, architect.
Founder of XLAB Corrosive Art Farm project in Berlin in 2009 and of the illegal underground art event Whereis101 and Whereis107 in Milano in 2006, i collaborated with international artists of every discipline and exhibited in different cities of Europe. I cross urban peripheries looking for details of the past, collecting pictures of marginal spaces and explorating the borders of post human passages.


Alba Loizzo, a.k.a. Madalba, was born in July 1985 in Bari. 
Since she was very young her interest in different musical cultures such as house and dance trends of the moment spread through rock and punk, leading to Techno and club-culture. 
At 22 she approaches the local scene as dj-girl with numerous performances in the club circuit in collaboration with some of the most renowned local promoters. Than she developed a continued and careful research into the musical experience during her participation to projects of the Faculty of Medicine in Rostock and Berlin, where she has been impressed and inspired by the radical Techno sound of Berghain. 
The musical experience gained over the years brought her to start djing only with vinyls building up a strong reputation as underground Techno dj, allowing her to play in clubs such as Tresor,  Abount Blank, SK Robinson, Mikz and Tacheles in Berlin where she basically lives. In July 2011 she created T_MooD, a podcast dedicated to the underground techno culture's diffusion from Berlin to Italy. In September 2011 she moved  to Detroit where she played in the most popular clubs such as The Works, Exodus and other in collaboration with Dj Seoul and Tom Linder - Detroit Techno Militia.This travel has definitely and radically changed is approach to the Techno concept, wich she cosiders more a social phenomenon and a means of complaint then simply a musical genre.
 Her first track will be next released  throw collaboration in Detroit with Joshua Adams - Exchange Bureau Music. In December 2011 she started the collaboration with the female crew Femme Fraktale. Since January 2012 she is resident of the party Homopatik in About Blank, Berlin.
