‘To acierate’ means to transform iron into steel. Acierate is also an emblematic moniker of a techno specialist hailing from Germany, known for his highly intensive DJ sets with some truly transformative powers.
Drivy, aggressive synth leads, encased by hammering industrial tunes. Acierate’s music is so energetic it almost hurts not to dance to it. His unapologetic DJ practice is built on forming musical narrations, telling stories not with words but with synth lines, high hats, snares and a hell of a lot of bass drum. Converting sonic energy into physical movement.
Born and bred in Berlin, Acierate is a founder of Synoid, regular hard techno event series of the now-defunct Griessmuehle, which will see the light of the day again in the newly formed Revier Südost. Acierate is a member of the club’s resident collective.
