Line-up /Vlad Caia (Amphia, Ro), Ken & Davy (Down Under), Dezz Terquez (Down Under), Koen & Pjay (Kontrast), Wolters, Bart and Bruni (Kontrast)
We coudn't have been more exited to announce, that two long running and well supported party-concepts are collaborating for an enhanced and refreshed outdoor event. DOWN UNDER and KONTRAST are joining forces this summer for an exclusive musical gathering on a unique location right next to Leuven.
For those who weren't there last year, the garden from â€œMolotovâ€ has proven itself to be a great surrounding for this type of event and we honestly can not wait to invite you there again. As you know there will be a great sound system so you can enjoy the beats in their full spectrum, lots of smiling faces and a carefully selected balance of the best underground house and techno music will be the ingredients of the day.
As guest we have invited VLAD CAIA (Amphia, Romania) to showcase his take on the exciting sounds hitting dancefloors each and every week. Of course he will be accompagnied by all the artists from both Down Under & Kontrast, so do we really need to say more? Be sure to join us on this laid-back affair, with a unique atmospheric vibe created by great artists and a unpretentious crowd, only caring about fun and good music.
Vlad began his music experimentation in his early teens. Equipped with only the bare essentials, a midi sequencer and a keyboard and the support of passionate musicians around him, ideas and soundscapes started to take shape and form.
Always keen on trying new things, together with fellow Cristi Cons, laid the foundation for the SIT project experiment, a platform where they can try new musical things. This collaboration fortified their first release, 'Year 3000' on Valentino Kanzyani's Jesus Loved You label. Sunwaves 8 festival held in Romania has been the host for this project's premiere.
In 2011 he started to shift his focus into more sound experimentation in order to break free from the already â€˜standardizedâ€™ rules of electronic music, a move that opened new ways and approaches to sound synthesis and arrangement, clearly visible in the labelâ€™s core concept and sound signature founded together with Cristi, Amphia. The first release was the beautiful Traversa ep by Cristi Cons. The second installment of Amphia is the Projections Ep. Projections is a clap driven tunnel track that will certainly make you think and dance in the same time. On the other hand Venera is a more housier toolish approach. Japanese artist and Berlin resident, Fumiya Tanaka, delivers a stunning Projections remix.
His musical influences spans from highly jazz infused rhythms to permutated experimental intricacies, from classical and orchestral arrangements to deep almost meditational dubbed sonic grooves, while still maintaining the variations and versatility throughout his works. Make sure to check him out at this special event!
Apart from Down Under residents Ken & Davy and Dezz Terquez, Vlad Caia will also be accompanied by the great dj team from Kontrast: Koen, Pjay, Wolters, Bart & Bruni. Mark this date!
