Hypnotic Black Magic はベルリンを拠点とする DJ で、ダーク/ディープ/催眠術的なテクノ、
Hypnotic Black Magic is a Berlin-based DJ inspired by dark/deep/hypnotic techno, atmospheric ambient and ritualistic drums. Always inspired by nostalgic and trippy electronic sounds since her early teenagehood, she has now developed her music taste around the niche subgenre hypnotic techno. Collecting tracks with a preference for powerful rhythmics, deep baselines, loopy atmospheric pads, epic themes or dark atmospheres, HBM’s construct her sets to guide the audience through a particular musical journey – captivating their minds for an introspective travel through human’s deepest obscure thoughts, meditative states and sensual expressions. Beginning to explore outdoor free parties in south of France at the age of 16, before moving to Berlin at 18, Apolline has always been fascinated by this particular subculture. Absorbed by its statement of freedom, its DIY concept and the supportive community around, she decided to start organising her own event series to help the artists she loves find a space to express themselves. Since 2018, Apolline has been organising events through Art Bei Ton and Ambient Sleepers, featuring hypnotic techno/ambient music together with visual arts. Her aims is to promote diverse international artists within gender-balanced line ups, focusing of offering safe space for flinta* and queer artists to perform.
