After a meeting on a shiny surface located in a gloomy part of Neukoln, OKO DJ and Low Bat decided to team up under the alias of Gavel Samt (a gavel is a small ceremonial mallet, 'samt' means velvet in German language).
The association of the dark, deep and fine tastes and skills of OKO to the musical nonsense of Low Bat provides a particular musical experiment - lying on a few wooden tables and tripping out on L** at Camp Cosmic, violently shaking shoulders to slow post punk or doom sounds in a few squats or silly basements in Switzerland, the meditation and the brutality - these are the states of mind that Gavel Samt try to reach when people are deaf enough to book them.
OKO DJ is one of the dark stars rising up within the underground DJ scene - shocking every kind of dancefloor and crossing genres, with a certain indulgence to music that puts you into trance with loud bass. She is also head of the Paris department of LYL Radio - where she hosts her own monthly radio show Pu$$y Nightmare, Shape artist 2018, core member of the Parisian collective Bruits de la Passion and signed to Lyon based infamous label Brothers From Different Mothers.
Low Bat, on his side, is an almost discrete digger, organising various event series in Berlin (Night Travel on a Blanket Show - see radio show on LYL under the same name, La WIE est belle and T R A N C E). He is also starting to develop various different musical projects with different people (such as D.R.U.S.H.).
