FTEE manages to maintain a nice balance between positive vibe and more heavyweight sounds.
ŠvenčionisŠvenčionis works hard as the editor of Secret Thirteen, but his skills behind the decks are no worse. He likes playing in a gritty and groovy way and never forgets the punkish attitude and well-informed music-digging habits. Švenčionis usually gives preference to harsher and more intense sounds of industrialised electro or noisier fringes of post punk, but can also detour into weirder pop terrains or even psychotic disco.
ZW_TZW_T is the duo consisting of old member of minimal LT family Samuel Tange and acclaimed lighting technician and dj Eugenijus Sabaliauskas. They both seem to be a perfect match and for quite a while transmit the groovy and warm techno/house cuts for your body.

Balancing between the classic 80’s material from synth/EBM/techno fringes and fresh up-to-date tracks, he smoothly weaves intense rhythmic tapestries to immerse you into movement and sweat.
Patris liveMusic made by Patris Židelevičius has started mutating recently. The organic cello-based acoustic ambient he was playing in the underground scene for the past 10 years has been more and more often replaced with experimental electronic music. He uses analog and digital devices to create rhythms and abstract synth lines that bury music in pulsating chaos. Each performance is a well prepared improvisation in which Patris seeks to explore and find new rhythms and consonances, go quite experimental, but keep you entertained. The warmth of the noisy analog devices will cover the vintage rhythm machine beats, melodies and ambient samples.
PletnevAlex Pletnev (formerly known as Ponty Mython) will drop some proper summer vibes, no matter what weather might surround you.

They will surely resonate well with blue skies and the greenery around.
OBŠRR liveObšrr fuses the monochrome nostalgia with haunted pop tunes echoing like some forgotten and distorted 80’s TV transmission wrapped in melancholic lo-fi. Among poetic references, monolith rhythmics and cold soundscapes dwells a dose of heartfelt emotionalism, which makes this sound so intimate and hypnotic. Even though Obšrr has detoured towards the more industrialized sound recently, these sensibilities are always present albeit not always in explicit forms.
Elektrus Erektus liveFinland brings us a dose of crazy, pig-headed electro-punk. This act will bring some insanity onto the festival grounds with its unpredictable synth sounds. Merging the chaotic punk energy with DIY minimal wave sensibilities they produce the cuts suitable for both dancing and moshing. Be ready for some intensity on and off stage.
Awanto 3Steven de Peven (aka Awanto 3) successfully channels his colorful personality and rich musical upbringing through his eclectic danceable tunes. It is hard to pin down a single genre that dominates his tracks. They might contain the positive groove of boogie or funk, the metropolitan rush of Chicago house, the vitality of afro-beat or sometimes the colder undertones of techno. These diverse elements are also reflected in his DJ sets performed in places ranging from Panorama Bar to the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. It seems like he found the right balance between moving the crowds and staying true to his sophisticated music lover nature.
Patricia Kokett livePatricia Kokett is one of the most active musicians in Lithuanian experimental underground circles. Having been involved in such unique projects as cutthroats, Flesh Flash, Vilkduja he finally reveals himself as a solo artist. An ace debut tape release introduced the possible directions for the things to come. Patricia’s sound combines the gritty tribalism with futurist elegance and is handcrafted by using pure analog means. Modular synth lines here pave way for rhythms, which are intense, dynamic and hypnotic at the same time. This music bursts with intelligent groove and could form a separate space to appreciate and be immersed into.
Arma Agharta liveArma Agharta is a musical nomad, constantly wandering around the globe, performing in the farthest corners of the world, whether it be some isolated village in northern Russia, green landscapes of Indonesia or a London underground club. No doubt these diverse cultural experiences have informed his sound and always-surprising and volatile live performances. The latter usually resemble an imaginable coalescence of DIY object-based sound art, neodadaism elements and some weird sonic playground. Arma always relies on a wide variety of found objects and unusual instrument combinations when he performs, thus every performance is a unique one-off spectacle.
Novo Line liveNovo Line is the alias of Nat Fowler, who uses vintage gear and re-appropriated software to craft his sharp grooves, at times making him sound like Autechre’s attempt at 80’s EBM. His impressive on-stage equipment includes two desktop computers stacked together with towers of other devices. These machines transmit the edgy rhythms wrapped in rough and futurist soundscapes. Novo Line’s sound never loses the danceable grip, but at the same time it manages to surprise with experimental forms and textures. Be ready for some wild and intelligent body music experience!
OctatanzOctatanz is a meeting of two kindred souls residing in different parts of Europe. It consists of Lithuanian DIY event promoter/DJ Matas Aerobica and Spanish cassette culture enthusiast and Sucked Orange gallery owner Oscar Olias, who is based in Berlin. Together they dive deep into the forgotten treasures of cassette culture to cherry-pick the finest gems for their sets. Be sure to hear the tunes you have never heard from the fringes of synth, punk, kraut, experimental scenes and beyond. With lots of unexpected turns and twists, of course.
BrawtherBrawther infuses the essence of deep house sound with some fresh energy. His tracks are flee floating, lush jewels with pure groove, which is the signifier of the genre. He does not merely repeat what was done, but rather updates it with his own unique sensibilities. Thus, they are not only suitable for subtle dance experiences, but also give sheer listening pleasure with their rich textures, smart mellow lines, and accurate vocal samples. Brawther’s sets have an alike balance between the elegance and the groove, the dense harmonies and smart pulsations.
Black MerlinBlack Merlin is the alias of George Thompson, also famous for being one half of such renown acts as Karamika and Spectral Empire. Under this moniker George transmits the adventurous combination of tribal pulsations, neo-kraut motorik dynamics, elements of Gamelan music and organic ambience. The recent LP “Hipnotik Tradisi” sounds like a possible soundtrack for a trip across the undiscovered lands, where sounds collide into a unified sensory experience with familiar and unfamiliar references. Such eclectic and genre-hopping approach might also be expected from Black Merlin dj sets, which are intense, at times quite harsh, but always inviting and involving.
SMOODSMOOD is a collaboration of DJ Aleksi & Shoulderpipe coming from Finland. Smood's sound is aimed at the dancefloor, but also does not lack depth and organic drifting atmospheres. It is both acidish and uplifting. For Supynės they prepared a set of harsher raw house sometimes even approching the borders of techno.
Oorxax liveVilnius-based project Oorchach wanders across the foggy fields stretching far into horizons. Yet sometimes it mutates and becomes Oorxax. Double X marks an emphasis on rhythmic structures. In terms of sound construction and direction, the project continues the line of Oorchach, but the forms of the game are slightly different here. However, the game is serious, thus a pale smile shines through the transcendental twilight. Black soul champagne, atavism and psychogeography. Tribal/postindustrial/devotional.
Nick Klein liveNick Klein is the true punk of the digital age wrapping the sharp grooves of Detroit techno and acid in bursts of rhythmic noise or synth sounds. The releases on such labels as L.I.E.S. or Alter in a way represents Nick’s sonic identity as he balances between experimental and rough danceable structures. Equipped with tons of gear he does some insane live shows as well. Be sure to expect some explosive body music, which might shred your brain as well.
Split PulseSplit Pulse is one of the most prominent djs in the local scene, quite frequently seen at top-notch parties of the capital. After seeing his name on the bill you can be sure to witness some wild dancing to the freshest techno sounds. But Split also never forgets the playfulness and humour.
PranzouPranzou is a restless mastering engineer, who made a large number of releases sound decently. Thus these skills are also transferred behind the decks. Be it mellow IDM or more dancefloor friendly sounds, Pranza conjoins them precisely and skillfully.
Mantas T.Mantas is the man who needs no introduction. Cologne based DJ imports his fresh wax discoveries to Vilnius on a regular basis and constantly surprises with his ace mixing skills and kicking cherry-picked cuts. The guy is a veteran in the Lithuanian club music circles, but his ears and vinyl bag is always up-to-date. Mantas also runs the Partyzanai net label and helps younger talents to get some additional exposure in the spotlight.
Smala: Manfredas x 12 Inčų po žemeSmala trio is responsible for one of the most vibrant club nights in Vilnius, which knows no genre boundaries, but always reaches the finish line with hundreds of people still dancing in the early morning hours. Manfredas, Billy Kristal and Kill My Disco mix genres as diverse as rough outsider house, weird disco or neokraut and turn them into an unpredictable party machine. Back in 2015 they managed to successfully transfer it to Supynes woodlands. No doubt they will repeat it with full force this year.

Darbo Džiaugsmai liveBustling rhythm box, smart guitar twists, catchy bass hooks and ironic lyrics about our mundane surroundings - what could be more fun! Stavaris, the veteran of Lithuanian indie underground and the founder of VRR outfit, accompanied by Gintas Rožė, Paulius Burakas and Vladas Dieninis weave the kicking combination of working-class pop, melody-fueled post punk with occasional detours to shoegaze or dub.

Artists Behind Machines - Exploring the Relation Between Gear and CreativityThe relation between producer and his tools of operation has always been a complicated issue sometimes working in favour, sometimes against the patterns of one’s creativity. In the age of retro revival, the juxtaposition between analog and digital is especially evident. And this is just one of the issues that bother the current producers and music critics. In order to dive slightly deeper into those matters we invited few notable artists with very diverse creative approaches and methods of operation. Their different attitudes and sensibilities will no doubt raise some interesting ideas, pose some questions or provide food for thought.
Andreas Tilliander aka TM404
Chung Kran liveChung Kran is the heir of Hodayma and Bryanfunkel, ideologically distant from the principles of modern society, living according to “boredofitall” ideology. “I am a nonsense worthy of unique chance. I am not interested in critique, bananas, high-heels and my own mind. I understand music in a meticulous, naive and complex way - in the same way as I do life. I understand it as a fragile process, which slowly, but unavoidably changes its form, sound, genre, methods of performance for the sake of essence and truth.”
Vilniaus Energija liveThe duo of Mc Messiah and Adas Gecevičius are ready to drown you in the eclectic mix of avant-hip hop, improvisation and left-field electronics. By combining their different musical context and finding their common sensibilities, without a doubt they will infuse some heat into the crowd. It is hard to predict these two established music artists, but the results are always worth the anticipation, especially having in mind their cross-genre backgrounds and exciting ongoing sonic endeavors.
NoruišisNoruišis is a dj and promoter responsible for the legendary, but now defunct Satta club. His vinyl-only funk sets are hard to beat for their accurately caught grooves and vibrations. But Noruišis also has his more moody and darker side and for Supynės he likes to pick some mellow IDM cuts. It's exciting to find out, what he has prepared this time.
Linas F Tee and Rob Meyer present ‘FREE-JAM‘.19:20 Linas ftee, a long serving veteran from the electronic music scene in Vilnius and across Europe, combines workforces with Rob Meyer - a pianist, composer and producer of experimental ambient and electronic works, originating from the UK.
The two musicians will bring together a selection of analogue and hardware equipment, including drum machines, samplers, modular synths and a collection of live instruments for a totally organic improvised experience. Influenced by the likes of free-jazz and left-field electronic music, the live show is a unique synergy of styles with unexpected and highly imaginative results.
Augustė Vickunaitė & su~yAugustė Vickunaitė creates sounds by using old reel to reel players. She transmits haunted and hypnotic loops by using the distorted and modified sounds of her friends playing various instruments and field recordings. su~y is the visual artist coming from experimental darker background, working on intersections of different medias be it analog/digital video projections, graphic design or digital/analog photography or any combo of those. Together they will show things from the micro level, magnifying the imperfection of material, the organic nature of the reel sound and its haunting qualities, which constitute the charm of this format.
DirektoriusDirektorius’ extensive background in music journalism and ska/punk roots inform his eclectic and intelligent selections. Tripping across the fields of post punk, guitar-based kraut or some washed out dubby pulsations, he never loses the sense of taste, innovation, but at the same does not forget to give nods to some classics. His passion for music, open-mindedness and accurate crate-digging habits are felt throughout his sets and mixes.
Dataline liveApart from being a talented producer and performer, Dataline also works for Elektron Music Machines, a world-famous Swedish gear brand. He employs these machines in order to handcraft the world of mellow and sophisticated techno passages. They fully unravel in his live performances, which might develop in a variety of different ways, whether they are floating aquatic pulsations or intense techno jams. With such an expertise in hardware, the sonic highways are wide.
20:50 MyrioramaMyriorama is a sonic journey gradually developing in the form of audio collage. The narrative of the composition is based on the dream logic, coalescence between different soundscapes, slow and murky tempo, organic and synthetic sounds. The piece was first time performed as a soundtrack to Salome Lamas movie “Trial by Fire” in Contemporary Art Centre during Scanorama film festival. Its original duration is 40 minutes. The current version of the track is expanded with new sonic narratives and has become an independent piece, which can be performed live on stage. Authors: Vladas Dieninis (ex-Avaspo, cutthroats) and Gintautas Rožė (Darbo džiaugsmai, Without Letters, cutthroats).
The performance will be accompanied by the visuals made by Tadas Karpavičius and Šarūnas Akelaitis and realised in live form by Šarūnas Akelaitis.
Solo Ansamblis liveIt was an interesting experience to see these guys transforming from lightweight singing poetry to dramatic synth pop, sometimes bringing to mind Lemon Joy, a legendary local band. Their acting background and open-heartedness are nicely transferred live on stage and that is proven by their rapidly increasing fanbase. During a relatively short time, they achieved popularity among the wide range of music lovers ranging from snobby bloggers to more mainstream audiences.
Rachel & MonicaRachel & Monica are two friends (Ulijona Odišarija ir Paulius Kaliačius), who met in Vilnius, then in Myspace and finally in London. Rachel is interested in dreams, amateur self-expression, separating the language from communication, while Monica is immersed in disco music, the analysis of gender roles and attempts at not crossing the limits of masculinity. The duo compiles audiovisual collages from the material found on the web, which includes talks, dances, self-promotion and poetry.
INRA liveINRA is the duo from Berlin consisting of Adam Ben-Nun and Philipp Rhensius, a guitarist and a drummer. By using the intonation guitar, field recordings, poetry and various harmonic substances they create vibrant atmospheres full of slowly unravelling rhythmics, drone walls and otherworldly soundscapes. It seems that INRA distorts your reality sense and immerses into their own small cosmos, where different laws apply. Moreover, their music contains the strong sense of improvisation, which adds up to its vitality and organic feel.
InteriorsHaving established himself as one of the leading figures and innovators of Lithuanian drum’n’bass scene, psych rock enthusiast and the restless promoter Gytis (aka Interiors) always manages to surprise. His Interiors alias is devoted to more psychedelic dance experiences, sometimes detouring to krautish electro, weird house or dynamic synth sounds. The rhythm is always explicit, but sometimes there is also some space left for more abstract voyages.
Fascia Lata x Ang3l_Sp1der and Ombra ElettricaRecently formed duo consisting of Miša Skalskis and Lucie, currently based in the Hague, the Netherlands. Couple of griots, weaving cinema of the ear. Whispering polarities of voice: the lullaby and a stampede. The color of the act - grin. Through heresy, to cure the memory from social fiction. Recovering unvoiced, futures - long forgotten to exist. Think of a dice abolishing the act of chance. The duo will be accompanied by vj Ombra Elettrica, who will enhance the experience with her visual forms.
TM404 liveAndreas Tilliander is the man of many guises - he produces lush and intense electronica under his own name, weaves glitchy ambient soundscapes under Mokira alias, while TM404 project is devoted to organic dub/techno/acid waves. By employing a solid bunch of gear including four legendary Roland drum machines tweaked in his own ways he manages to create an immersive live experience, balancing between dubby depths and sharp acid-flavored techno. Undoubtedly, he's a master of hardware, but at the same time he uses it with soulful accuracy and attention. No wonder all this impressed Richie Hawtin, who invited him to play in a variety of his events. A performance surely not to be missed!
TAGTAG is famous for his razorsharp electro sets, but now he will play deeper and slower techno just before the main Saturday headliners. No doubt that it will be a big and massive support consisting of finest tracks.
23:20 kdrk x justas bøThe two established artists coming from different backgrounds, working with different media join their forces for a collaboration of processed voice and responsive lights. Psycho-active readings by Žygimantas Kudirka (aka Mc Messiah) will be enhanced by light-system installed by Justas Bø, a mixed media artist integrating light installations into surrounding environments, creating the effect of harmonic chaos and loud silence.
IliusApart from being a long-time contributor to the Secret Thirteen journal, Ilius also spins some emotionally intense and atmospheric sounds. Whether it be noirish experimental synthwave, elegant krautish ambient or more subtle forms of industrial music, there are always some narrative twists, which connect those sounds. Preferring vinyl over digital, he tries to merge eclecticism with consistency for listening and dancing at the same time.
Untitled Tricks: Lyra live, Lukas Danys, Marius Onofrei, Noia, Bell Riots, LockroixThis name unites six Lithuanian DJs, producers and promoters currently based in Copenhagen and infusing the local nightlife waters with some rugged and edgy dance experiences. Lukas Danys, Bell Riots, Marius Onofrei, Konsistent, Noia and Lockroix all have their diverse modi operandi, but manage to combine their preferred genres under one roof. Detroit techno, obscure disco cuts, exotic synth discoveries, outsider house and other sounds create moving and surprising patterns to dance to. A good example of community, which never loses the sense of quality, excitement and natural flow.
ShedSūpynės is proud to present you Ostgut Ton and Monkeytown Records associate Shed, the gem of German techno scene. In his few critically acclaimed albums he leaps across various forms of techno heritage flirting with German sound as well as playing with extensive allusions to Detroit and UK rave sound palettes. Thus Shed’s music has really diverse sensibilities. It fuses playful dynamics with lush melodies, intense energy with sonic depth. Having grown up in East Germany, he got immersed in Berlin rave culture later on and we might trace this experience in the sounds he transmits in his excellent releases as well as his DJ sets. The latest “Final Experiment” is a brilliant collection encompassing his best qualities and we have no doubt that he will convey this energy in his Sūpynės set.
Dalhous liveNo wonder that Edinburgh is the native city of this duo: their sound resonates so well with the city’s vast landscapes and sprawling suburbs, merging into the hills and woodlands. Crystalline ambient pads, baroque harmonies and noirish melodies form a soundworld that is tranquilizing, romantic and strangely psychoactive at the same time. Constant references to anti-psychiatry legend R.D. Laing adds an additional layer of meaning to these oneiric compositions. It is difficult to pin down a single mood that dominates the Dalhous tracks. In this respect they remind an emotional kaleidoscopic vision, where dramatic tensions suddenly evolve into lush serenity.
KYO liveKYO is one of the most intriguing names on stunning Denmark’s Posh Isolation label. The members of the duo are already well established - Hannes Norrvide is known as the founder of Lust for Youth, while Frederik Valentin is involved in such acts as Complicated Universal Cum and Rock Hard Power Spray. However diverse their background might be, KYO is an entirely new world, a certain boundary where their mutual sensibilities collide. Balancing between glossy abstract electronics, melancholic elements of chamber music and synthetic transparency they invite you to observe the world behind a glass as well as to be seduced by touching and bright harmonies. This music is as distant as it is personal and in a way it reminds the haziness of neon-lit colorful cityscapes.
Neel hybrid live/djApart from being one half of Voices From The Lake (a duo with Donato Dozzy), Neel is also a prominent solo producer as well as skilled mastering engineer. His soundworld takes you on an otherworldly journey, which is organic and alien at the same time. The aquatic soundscapes give way to tribal elements, occasionally surfacing slow rhythms and light ambience. Neel’s music is atmospheric and dynamic and the latter element is more evident in his live sets. In Supynes Festival 2017 he will perform a hybrid live/DJ set encompassing his signature elements. No doubt it will wonderfully resonate with natural surroundings!
S13Apart from being the the founder of Secret Thirteen, a well-established web platform of experimental music, Justinas aka S13 is also a prolific DJ and an active music digger, always impressing with his intense and heavyweight sets full of suspense, tension and raw uncontrolled energy. Even though he prioritizes mixing monolith industrial soundscapes with rough-edged and noisy post punk or synthwave, there is always a place for unexpected encounters. But the latter are always to the point and in the right place.
Kameu × JON × JogailaHere comes the first b2b2b from one of the best rising technoheads coming from the younger generation of the scene. All of these guys have already cemented their reputation due to ace juggling with heavyweight techno, which might be both densely atmospheric and danceable. Kameu is the member of minimal.lt family and already showcased his skills in an excellent Boiler Room session, while Jon and Jogaila actively maintain their Black Wave and Hooked:on series focusing on darker techno sounds.
CarolCarol has two major musical passions - EBM and kosmische musik. At Sūpynės, he usually prefers the latter - and hands down, he really is an expert in these elegant starry synthscapes. Collecting vintage synthesizers helped him empathize with these sounds even further, thus his sonic stories always convince.
Auren liveAuren is a Lithuanian producer sculpting the jewels of atmospheric electronic music, which incorporates the elements of ambient, IDM or beats. The harmonies float with gentle easiness and convincing depth. These tracks could be just the perfect companions for early morning hours or cozy and slow sunsets.

He is always trying to deliver groovy and eclectic house music to his audience. Be prepared for floating easy-listening, yet danceable cuts.
RugilėRugile is one of the most promising up-and-coming DJs, who breaks the boundaries between the old and the new. In her sets she likes to combine happy dreamy synths, hypnotic guitars and foli rhythmics. Most often she builds things up from scratch, starting the journey with almost mesmeric fusion of industrial, experimental electronica & weirdo internacionales.
THP: Trippsy, Haathi, PuoroTHP is a Kiev-based DJ trio of Trippsy, Haathi and Puoro. They surf on the light waves of breezy techno and spacious house. These sounds are perfect for careless midnight dances or night-drive across the city. No doubt they will reverberate equally well with bustling Lithuanian woodlands.
RankingRanking is the dj alias of sound engineer Vilius Smalinskas, who plays deep and dynamic techno sounds for mind and body. Ranking sets are calm, but at any time things might get intense, yet in a subtle way.
grad_u livegrad_u moniker has been circulating within the circles of deep dub techno fans for more than ten years. There's more to him than just restlessly producing his music: he also runs Redscale and Greyscale vinyl labels. Initially triggered by hearing a track by Fluxion, he developed his sound over the years into the purified experience, where breezy atmospheres of lakes and woodlands merge with aquatic grooves and more futurist techno sensibilities. No wonder grad_u has been a long time active participant of Supynes Festival as his music resonates so well with the idea and surroundings of the festival. These sounds act as a welcoming journey during which you can dance and contemplate your inner thoughts at the same time.
SHNShn is one of the main people behind this festival and minimal.lt crew. An experienced technohead with good and diverse taste knows how to both convince crowds with fresh sounds of intelligent techno and to showcase the adventurous nature of the genre.
