Karl Marx Stadt

Karl Marx Stadt is electronic music artist Christian Gierden (b. 1978) working mostly in the field of heavy, fast & complicated but cheesy dance music. Overwhelmingly emotional melodies, radiant spacey atmospheres, intricate but strong rhythmic structures make for a rewarding listener’s experience.

After slowly stepping back from the late 90ies mostly sample based hardcore project Society Suckers, recent years have spawned a love for analogue techniques, dub and stronger emphasis on melodic elements. Live shows can be an amusing blend of hyperen ergetic Rave mixing and carefully paced Dubbing sessions incorporating circuitbending, synthesizers, childrens toys and of course, the universe.
