Meet Tusk: Synth-Wave Meets Sci-Fi: Video

Who is TUSK?

Armed with haunting vocals and synth melodies, TUSK is a dance floor renegade with beats fit for the runway and an escapist sci-fi fantasy with no limits. Fusing together a disco rave swagger with the dark arts of a black magician, TUSK inhabits the nexus point between Xiu Xiu, John Foxx and Kate Bush.

Best described as synth-wave meets sci-fi, TUSK is hailed as a visionary by fans. The new LP ‘Sacrifice’ is an epic, bittersweet space opera threaded through the rising drones and beats of 1980s and 90s synthdance. Kaltblut magazine called it “Synthwave meets Sci-fi”, and Time Out Lisbon described TUSK as “Berlin’s ambassador of underground synth-pop esoterica” on his last visit to the city.

The hooks are indelible; the dislocated melodies and beats blast across the spectrum from acid house to future pop, new-wave to rave. TUSK is danceable music for an age staring into the apocalypse, synths married with science fiction; lipstick shine under blacklights.

Toying with the idea of a space-age doomsday cult, TUSK is known for his eclectic, theatrical live performances, backed by a rotating roster of dancers, armed with fierce looks and bubble guns. TUSK has graced the stages of festivals and clubs in London, Melbourne, Zurich, Berlin and Warsaw, among others.

TUSK is a member of MYSTIC KNIGHTS a prog new-wave crossover. He also produced the debut album of dark-pop priestess V and countless remixes for beautiful freaks and weirdos in Berlin and beyond.
