Cafe Music 2: Werewolves of London


“Another Café – the sophomore Café – following last year’s ‘Café Kotti’ tape sees Wilted Woman and Nick Klein back as a live electronics duo. Their second freeform performance took place at London’s Café Oto in September 2019 during an Alien Jams night. With more preparation but the same amount of looseness, the pair steer away from genre definition and self-importance, manipulating recordings from jam sessions, skillfully altering samples from various sources alongside modular synths patterns. The result ‘Cafe Music 2 : Werewolves Of London’ is a spellbinding flow of meditative drones, beatless rhythmic explorations and unsettling melodies.

Central to the duo’s process is carving out space to play and laugh with (and sometimes at) each other. The two friends have developed their own communication tactics for remote idea generation and exchange – Nick Klein is based in the Hague, with Wilted Woman in Berlin. This also allows them to perform live without imposing rigid structures onto the project.

The pair build upon each performance to create a world of their own which, in turn, should lead them to many more Cafés.”

Shakey - S/T


The debut offering from Shakey, a new project from Silvia Kastel and Lizzie Davis (Wilted Woman). A syncretic meshing of both artists sensibilities, Shakey encompasses both’s love of digi-dub, jungle, musique concrete, and the fusing of ambient textures with abstracted rhythms.

Suds - Sick Universe Demands Sharing


“Spun-out but fleet-footed breakbeat-techno/IDM android-amphibians from Wilted Woman and Christoph De Babalon's entirely unexpected collaborative projekt. Particularly diggin the aquatic-ruin-zone dub (dare I say dubstep?!) of 'Mirage March' and 'Trauerweide''s frayed, fidgety shut-in electro.” - Low Company

Café Kotti


“The extensive new record ‘Café Kotti’ by Nick Klein & Wilted Woman arrives on Alien Jams as the first collaborative release from the duo. Recorded in one session, the 50 minute piece is the culmination of a long working relationship between the two artists. Berlin-based Wilted Woman - who previously released her ‘Home Listener’ EP on Alien Jams - collates her signature analogue electronics and glitch-ridden intricacies to the new explorative piece. Pairing up with Brooklyn artist and Primitive Languages co-founder Nick Klein (L.I.E.S., Alter, BANK Records), ‘Café Kotti’ was recorded during the performance ‘Program: Etc.’, an exhibition by Domingo Castillo on November 10, 2018 in Berlin. Broken up into two parts, the haunting A-side skews eerily under-surface melodies that interlace with feedback, winding loops and noise, whilst the B-side teases in dark rhythmic patterns and pulsating synths to create an intriguing atmosphere. As a result of the exhibition, the collaboration explores various themes:


PROGRAM: REALITY, MONKEY, METABOLIC, SCHISM, SURFACE, SCRIPT, EYE, MODEL, DYNAMIC, MANDARIN, IMAGE, DITHER, CIGARETTE, DISPOSSESSION, SCREEN, MALADY, REJECTION, PANDEMONIUM, JUICE, EQUILIBRIUM, ETC.”
