Pyrit (SG) – Band
After two years of hard work in his Parisian studio the second album of PYRIT, the project of the Swiss multi-instrumentalist Thomas Kuratli, is ready. Building from his first album “UFO” (2015), which tells of the transformation of a man into a machine, we are now locked inside this machine, whose infinite warrens are constantly changing shape.
Like a floating spirit, recollecting his experience as a human being, we end up roaming in this sonic maze, both prison and new world to be reclaimed. It is within this context that our sensations collide in a coldly organised magma of sound. There, we meet the wounded ghosts of David Lynch, Portishead or Haxan Cloak, but the final result is deeply personal and innovative. This wonderful album is ultimately a journey, without beginning nor end, where flesh and digital, concrete and abstract, anxiety and hope confront one another. It shakes our very foundations, consumes our emotions however leaves us with a longing for more.
Joey Sasa (BE) – DJ
Joey Sasa is going strong in Drum and Bass and House. The versatility within and beyond these genres is one of the main factors which makes him a proper and solid performer. The style is mostly melodic with a beautiful flavour of funk or disco but never too shy of deep basslines. The perfect balance between the mighty underground and more commercial sounds will make any proper crowd go wild! The love and passion for music can clearly be heard and felt in his sets. Occasionally Joey can be seen doing downtempo and lounge sets. Quality sounds brought to you with love, that’s what you can expect!
