Pandora's Jukebox + Asmara + Sydfalls + Amalcrossing
HE4RTBROKEN is een Belgisch collectief dat zich focust op gevoelens en transformatie in plaats van op bepaalde muziekgenres. Onvervalst emotionele clubmuziek, een veilige haven voor eenzame zielen die verlangen naar een dansvloer om uit te huilen binnen een gedeelde cathartische ervaring. Hun resident dj-team bestaat uit oprichters Liyo en Steff, evenals nevrland, het vierhandige project van producers Munix en ssaliva. Ze organiseren sinds 2015 feesten in onze stad, telkens voorzien van een rake line-up, waaronder vanavond:
Spanning from east London's late 90's rave scene, Pandora's Jukebox is an institution among the most seminal underground clubs in Europe and North America, and her monthly show 'Renegade Soundwaves' for NTS radio which she runs since 2016 is an absolute life changer and a first class demonstration of how to push textures, story telling and composition in "dj mixes", making them rather low pitch/high IQ sonic rituals, with generous weight of abstractions, 3d field recordings, elastic beats, brutalist basslines and techno with a capital NO. The body of artists she shared stages with is a further proof of her uninhibited and disparate approach to music, spanning from Arca, Ryoji Ikeda, Sunn O))), Einstürzende Neubauten, HTRK, Total freedom, and dj Hell. We're so honored to bring this absolute icon to Brussels for the first time (!!!!!)
Do we still need to introduce Asmara aka Asma Maroof??? Half of the Nguzunguzu duo, and an essential part of the genre defining collectives that were the Fade to Mind label, GHE20G0TH1K parties in New York, Wildness and Mustache Mondays in LA, her outputs, djing style and personality have been highly influential to the club scene as we know it today. Her sensual yet somber debut EP Let Ting Go embodies her adventurous relationship with sound, bridging elegant Indian strings and R&B sparkles with raw underworld drum patterns. Working with many vocalists, she’s especially worked closely with Kelela, producing tracks on all her releases. With filmmaker and frequent collaborator Wu Tsang, she’s scored Into a Space of Love, a piece on house music in NYC, and her short film One Emerging From a Point of View. Mesmerized by the connections sound makes internally, externally, and socially, she continues to explore its powerful storytelling capabilities, both behind the decks and on screen. Asmara played a memorable B2B dj set together with Manara at our 3 years anniversary party, and we couldnt be more happy to welcome her again, this time for a solo dj set <333
Growing up in Chicago’s South Side surrounded by music and constantly inspired by house music, footwork and drill music, SydFalls have started to dj a couple years ago amongst the pandemic, and have since been steadily rising and making waves with their blazing dj sets that can span from 160bpm techno to gospel songs at 5am for extra emotional communion at sunrise... Super excited to welcome their first show in Belgium :')
Amalcrossing is mostly known for her visual works, for which she utilizes the residual emotions of her childhood spent in both France and Morocco to create imagery reminiscent of her youth. Her sonic works prove to be equally full of sentiments and nostalgia, and have touched a special string in our hearts. The mix she recorded for our NTS show is an ultra melodic, climatic and beautiful journey, one of the brightest mixes we've been blessed to host. Having recorded mixes before with dida, Eterna and Malibu, this will be her first time playing a live dj set!
Our faithful team of resident djs will always be there for you :')
