Keep On Dancing: incoming parties after lockdown

By Event Previews and Reviews, News

Many months have passed since the COVID emergency and the music industry remains the most affected. Governments and health organisations, faced with pressure to reopen the world economy, are starting to outline guidelines for the return of clubs, discos and music festivals including The BPM Festival, Epizode, YZY Sound, Kiesgrube, Real Gang x Weetamix, Pikes, Supermarket, The Cause, Number 90 and Distrikt Leeds.

If the culture of clubbing is much more than that, if it is much more than a group of people united in the same club, this feeling will use whatever tools are available to connect the public and support this sector. The modalities, in some cases in the experimental phase, are many, without neglecting an important aspect: the support to the artists in this transitional phase. Helping the electronic music community during the current coronavirus pandemic is the goal of the different online resources and live streaming events that arose as a result of cancellations that are currently decimating the live music industry. Many of the creators and supporters of club culture and events, deejays and producers, are fighting this war against Covid-19 with the entertainment of their audience, with the production of music, with streaming live around the world.

IMAGE A

With over four million cases worldwide, the reopening of nightlife will be gradual, probably the last of the areas that will show new signs of openness. The clubbing sector is not just about social and entertainment, the so-called “club culture” is much more.

Its features refer to the aggregation, relationship, exchange, sense and feeling of belonging that young people of the world feel towards their club, their subculture, their group, their movement. These are chapters in the history of events, artists who have approached the dancefloor to new emotions, clubs that have welcomed behind the console deejays and musicians from all over the world. Everything that the new epidemiological enemy is trying to raise to the ground, paradoxically at the time of a generation that is equipped with all the tools to be united, close, but which is forced to remain momentarily distant.

But now something starts to change. We take a look at festivals, parties and venues which are bringing our scene back to life.

Finally, the music industry is coming back to life. We are running out of live-streamings that in these months of lockdown have kept us company and we are all going back to buy airline tickets to reach our favourite club or festival. It was definitely a very difficult year for the music industry but now everything starts to go back to the way it was before and stronger than ever. The world needs music and fortunately, things seem to be getting back to normal slowly but surely!

26th Sept. | Ampere pres. Amphia night with SIT, Amorf (live), Dan Andrei, Cezar

By Event Previews and Reviews, News, Not So Series

We talked about a long ago. A time that seemed to us interminable. A time of discouragement, uncertainties and fears, that seems to have finally reached the end. The Amphia night was supposed to take place at the Ampere club on Friday 13th March, but we all know what happened then. With great regret of the organizers, artists and all the music lovers, the night has been delayed indefinitely. Now, almost 4 months after, we’re so happy to announce that the event will take place on 26th September, same line-up, same passion, same flavour.

 

107052494_107340477714072_952561177579648395_o_1_copy.jpg

 

Born from the mind of Romanian studio wizards and musical visionaries Cristi Cons and Vlad Caia, this label has rapidly shaped what we usually used to call the rominimal sound, adding to the usual intricated grooves the right dose of fuzzy synths, futuristic basslines and cosmic pads. The label name itself evokes ancient and epic scenarios, leading us to vast and desolate lands, where once performed deeds that are still remembered today.

 

 

The battlefield for the night (if we can say so) will be the magic Ampere club. The titans clashing will include label heads – Vlad and Cristi – under their SIT moniker, going live both as a duo and a trio, because they will be joined by extraordinary pianist Mischa Blanos, with whom they form the Amorf group. The Romanian squad will be completed by Arpiar’s associates Cezar and Dan Andrei whom, through a rich and deep musical selection, will enrich the evening unleashing unforgettable peak times tracks.

Serialism & MEOKO present: Save the Amazon Music Marathon

By Event Previews and Reviews, Uncategorized

The Music industry unites to: ‘Save the Amazon’ on June 26/27/28.

 

As the destruction of Brazil’s Amazon accelerates due to illegal deforestation and forest fires, the 3 days live stream marathon ‘Save the Amazon’ aims to connect and inform international audiences about the current situation of the natural landmark through music and art.

 

Facebook-banner-save-the-amazon-FRONT-2

 

Meoko and Serialism Records will come together in the weekend 26-27-28 of June along with a team of worldwide celebrated artists and media partners, for the first edition of a unique and heart-felt musical marathon to raise awareness for the future of one of the world’s most vital ecosystems.

During these troubling times, the pandemic has made it difficult for people around the globe to be aware of the latest development in the Amazon forest.

Home to some of the last Indigenous Tribes and traditional communities, the world’s largest rain forest is vital for keeping our climate stable. But with industrial exploitation and forest fires ravaging the region, the Amazon forest is facing unprecedented threats by a greedy industry backed by the present government. Now, with the double threat of fires and Covid-19, indigenous communities and many unique species of animals are in even more danger.

Currently, the Brazilian Congress is close to voting a law derivative from the decree MP910, which allows people that illegally logged or squatted on protected federal lands before December 2018, to purchase such lands at reduced prices.
This law directly relates to and fosters the practice of `land-grabbing´, which could lead to more massive deforestation. Imazon, (a non-profit environmentalist group) found that the measure could lead to a loss of an additional 16,000 square kilometers of the rainforest by 2027.

 

Facebook-banner-save-the-amazon-BACK_copy.jpg

 

Deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest rose more than 88% in June 2019 compared with the same month in 2018, and more than doubled in January 2020 compared with the same month in 2019.

 

Indigenous tribes are in great danger, firstly because of the pandemic and secondly, with the political agenda that revolves around their habitat and land. It is time to connect despite our confinement and express our concern for the Amazon as one, the world may not recover from this catastrophic situation. We must act, now.

Toi.Toi. Musik celebrates its 10 years with a massive tour

By Event Previews and Reviews, Reviews

Toi.Toi. celebrates 10 years of passion and community for music announcing the first wave of artists and dates for 2020

 

toitoi 10 years tourposter1

 

London’s incredible music scene has given birth to many clubs, promoter brands and deejays. Among these, the Toi.Toi. Musik family (agency, event promoter, and label) has been a staple in the British capital, standing out for its passion and love for music which reflects a particular signature style.

 

The first Toi. Toi. events could be dated back in 2010 and took place at warehouse locations, eventually leading to nights at Fabric London and other clubs and venues within the city and abroad. Since its inception, the Toi.Toi. Musik crew has ¨focused on quality over quantity, with lineups, sound, and venues that create a unique atmosphere for like-minded people to come together¨. In its agency’s roster, Toi.Toi. can boast artists like Daniel Bell, Sammy Dee, Vincent Lemieux, Ion Ludwig, Topper, Dubtil, Junki Inoue and Doris Nicholas among other respected acts. For many years now, Toi.Toi. has worked on showcasing events with top tier artists like Zip, Margaret Dygas, Craig Richards, Matthew Jonson and Move D to name a few, as regular guests to their stellar line ups.

 

To celebrate the impressive landmark achievement of ten years running events, Toi.Toi. Musik has announced the first wave of their anticipated 10-year tour for 2020, which started February 21st at Club Guesthouse (Romania) up to June 19th at OFF Week Barcelona, where they’re gonna celebrate its founding anniversary.

 

toitoi 10 years logo

 

Brasilian on birth but with evident Italian origins, Toi.Toi.’s founder Isis Salvaterra has lived for two decades now in London. Consequently, Salvaterra founded the Toi.Toi. brand as a natural process that came to fruition with time as she discovered and networked in London’s underground scene due to her deeply rooted passion for music and creative endeavours. Over the years, Isis has networked with artists and creatives from different fields to create Toi.Toi.’s unique team, one that is well-rounded and rich due to its vast cultural diversity. This passion for music eventually established her as a cultural figure in the underground scene in London and abroad. In 2019, she eventually moved to Romania and this led her to take over media, communications and public relations for Club Guesthouse in Bucharest, the heart of Romania’s underground scene. This year she decided to focus only on Toi.Toi. setting the new office in the Sunrise Hub, the newest artist hub in Bucharest designed by Herodot and by Sunrise.

 

 

The parties of the first half of the year include six dates in different countries including Romania, Portugal, England, and Spain. The first two events were held in Romania in February and received massive support from the local audience, a natural connection that was meant to happen. The high quality of Toi.Toi.’s event productions and avant-garde ethos are always present at their events and continue to captivate audiences across the globe. Next up in the calendar, Lisbon, (Dan Andrei, Alex Troubetzkoy) with a joint event with the Anexo promoter brand and their residents Elles and Benn. Following their event in Lisbon, London will witness another all-star lineup at the Fold warehouse (Rhadoo, Vlada, Edward, Dubtil and Junki Inoue) and an intimate and perfect after-party at the Lion and Lamb for Easter Bank Holiday to close a memorable weekend in the British capital.

 

London and Barcelona will be undoubtedly highlights of the tour as these cities are cultural hubs to the international music scene, and as the summer approaches beautiful music and nice weather are the perfect combination to end the tour with a proper smile and endless dancing! Toi.Toi.’s 10-year anniversary tour has started in full swing, and the following dates will be a series of exceptional parties, that will continue to create a beautiful experience that revolves around the passion for music and community.

 

The remaining TBA lineups are set to be revealed soon, followed by the second series of events to take place in the latter half of 2020. Tickets are available on Resident Advisor. More info at Toi.Toi. Musik’s social media accounts.

Amp Amphia Event v1

Amphia label brings to the stage the elite of the Romanian sound w/ SIT (live), Cezar, Dan Andrei, Amorf

By Event Previews and Reviews, Reviews

Antwerp’s renowned Ampere is ready to host one of the most anticipated nights of this season, welcoming one of the hottest labels of the moment: Amphia. Born from the mind of Romanian studio wizards and musical visionaries Cristi Cons and Vlad Caia, this label has rapidly shaped what we usually used to call the “rominimal” sound, adding to the usual intricated grooves the right dose of fuzzy synths, futuristic basslines and cosmic pads. The label name itself evokes ancient and epic scenarios, leading us to vast and desolate lands, where once performed deeds that are still remembered today.

 

Amp Amphia Event v1

 

The battlefield for the night (if we can say so) will be the magic Ampere club. The titans clashing will include label heads – Vlad and Cristi – under their SIT moniker, going live both as a duo and a trio, because they will be joined by extraordinary pianist Mischa Blanos, with whom they form the Amorf group. The Romanian squad will be completed by Arpiar’s associates Cezar and Dan Andrei whom, through a rich and deep musical selection, will enrich the evening unleashing unforgettable peak times tracks.

 

 

The Amphia’s sound could be described as an avant-garde blend of endless rolling grooves, deep intense atmospheres, delicate classic orchestra interludes and progressive-ish synths, that can often be found, even together, during the long and epic breathtaking breaks.

 

Amorf 2

 

 

Since its foundation, which goes back over 6 years, the label has given the chance to studio wizards such as Kamran Sadeghi, De Walta, Wareika and Dubtil – up to the latest EP by Rome’s talent Christopher Ledger with AMP021 – to express a truly no-boundaries idea of sound. Obviously, in addition to the names we’ve just mentioned, also appear those of Cezar (AMP010 and AMP015) and Dan Andrei (AMP018).

 

 

So get ready to welcome a series of artists, real music surgeons, who in recent years has enchanted people from all over the world including incredible venues like Sunwaves Festival (where they will perform again during the next SW27), Club Guesthouse (Bucharest), Hoppetosse (Berlin), Goa Club (Rome) and The Block (Tel Aviv) to name a few, demonstrating once again how their sound managed to make its way through the maze of the ever-growing “rominimal” movement.
