"Rendez-vous (in RotterHague)". Elegant french glossary to call a conventional meeting between humans. Hopes and promises of a first date, somewhere between Paris, Rotterdam & Den Haag, between modernist nostalgia and melancholic future, with for the first time ever in france, a live-act from dutch duet The Hasbeens.
The Hasbeens sets the collaboration of two of the most preeminent artists of the "West Coast of Holland" : Alden Tyrell & DJ Overdose. This peculiar musical scene appeared as the european answer to Underground Resistance in the early 90's through the Unit Moebius combo and then relieved by artists such as I-f, Legowelt, labels as Bunker, Creme, Clone or the incredible Intergalactic FM internet radio. Very keen on analogic synth and fervent supporters of a special electronic culture's memory, his fellow members never stop to appropriate disco, italo, original genuine electro, synth-pop, chicago-house or detroit-techno codes with great panache.
Stakhanovist producer, Alden Tyrell, released more than twenty single or album records and countless remixes under his different monikers and side-projects. His electro-disco, imitating a kind of italo naivety, melodic to the bones and deeply influenced by Moroder or Patrick Cowley, destroys the most uncooperative dancefloors!.
About DJ Overdose, he's the producer of a whole load of timeless records, under his own name or various side-projects such as Model Man, Dream Disco, Get it Boyz and, above all, Novamen (with Mr Pauli). Real turntablist sorcerer, he delightly enjoys to mix early hip-hop with Miami-bass, electro and freestyle to make the crowd go wild! The gathering of those two musical activists provides an explosive killer vocoder-synth cocktail and their already cult three records, released on Clone & Frustrated Funk are making this totally new live-act in Scop'Club an event that cannot be ignored!
As enthusiastic hosts of this first gig, Noctambulo (ex head-honcho of Elektrosonik crew and premium quality-records seller on Discogs) and his teammate Serge Nicolas (founder of Paradise Massage, Black Bone parties & Stereolize festival) will sail on electro, synth-wave, chicago-house, detroit-techno, italo, nu-disco and other synthetico-electronic seas.
