Start: 10 pm
10 at the door, no pre-sale
The soundsystem is custom built, by Gijs Tadda from the city of Eindhoven. The two wood cased stacks (2,6m w x 2,5m h x 0,8m d per stack) have an exceptionally high frequency range with heavy bass and high definition in mid and high segments. Gijs controls the sound throughout the night with a digital 12 channel mixing desk.
Clélia Zida is a French born artist based in Amsterdam since 2001. She graduated Cum Laude from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 2005. In her paintings Clélia Zida revisits the wide and diverse language of abstraction, using the motto “form is content”. This doens’t quite apply to the party artwork here, where she intuitively found her visual translation to the monster and the waves with a nocturnal smile.
Kléo the DJ paints musical landscapes from a broad palette of warm grooves and infectious rhythms.
Years after organizing night as part of the Broke crew in the city of Eindhoven, Margie returns in Amsterdam as the instigator of Loch Ness, gathering a team of extraordinarily talented friends to work together on a monstrous night out driven by indulging sound, set up in unusual spaces. Storytelling is Margie’s forte. Spinning tall musical tales on high key at her shows on Red Light Radio, her wisdom and musical flair speak volumes – unapologetic, raw, surprising.
Roel de Boer
Roel was there to start up Rush Hour on day 1. The Amsterdammer has an extraordinary taste and knowledge in music. His way of mixing.. He has a very original take on combining and contextualizing music. An absolute living ledge and an absolute favorite DJs among meticulous music heads here in Amsterdam.
The history of modern French electronic and dance music would look very different without this man and his label. From his days as a musical programmer and DJ for the legendary Parisian station Radio Nova to his productions, remixes and partnership with I:Cube as Chateau Flight and maybe most important with Versatile Records. To quote the man himself: “We just never stopped being music nerds.” And we should be glad for that.
The Japanese Satoshi Yamamura runs a homonymous blog as one half of the DJ duo Okonkole Y Trompa. Thanks for his exquisite ears he managed to become a influential tastemaker in all sorts of music. Growing from a humble Youtube channel where the boys could upload discoveries otherwise unavailable online, they now curate a website receiving rapid recognition, along with monthly shows on London’s NTS.
Order Mothership is the vehicle of a Amsterdam based collective of artists who travel through different galaxies, collecting dusty- black- electronic- rhythms to dance to. Probably inspired by Detroit’s mothership, they say: “The abduction is near, this might be your last day on earth.” They’re tattoo profs, fashion designers and music heads. But moreover a very entertaining party crew.
A REALLY FAKE FUTURE
Jason Page & Karen Huang
Exhibition Opening: September 19, 19:00
Especially for Unseen Amsterdam, iso presents A Really Fake Future, a collaborative project by textile-based designers Karen Huang (TW) and Jason Page (US), inspired by the tapestries of Dutch artist Elma Beks (1926-2014). The project envisions a future where traditional textile handicrafts such as quilting, embroidery and design are replaced by automated production and digital representation as a result of artificial intelligence. Translating 3D materials to 2D images, the designers question what textile craftsmanship may look like in the future. The exhibition A Really Fake Future is curated by Florence Parot, co-founder of iso, and will feature material research in digital image making and textiles.
