, Sunday Matinee
The Sunday Matinee is a concept started way back in 2006 by Red D, with the simple aim to bring good house music to the people of Ghent and beyond on a Sunday afternoon and early night. A little something different from the decadent late night clubbing hours, leaving more room for musicality and experiment.
The question pops up every other week or so: â€œWhen can we expect another Sunday Matinee?â€ The answer usually is: â€œWhenever I have a chance to bring you somebody unexpected that I like to hear play for us.â€ Pretty simple and not a single strategy behind it, just good music whenever we get the chance to bring it.
That philosophy sums up perfectly what Kai â€˜Kaizerâ€™ AlcÃ© is all about: good music. Haitian roots, growing up in New York, working at the legendary Music Institute in Detroit and spending some time in Chicago, now thereâ€™s an upbringing that shouldnâ€™t need that much explanation. It is however in the not so predictable surroundings of Atlanta that Kai really started to make a mark. Throwing parties, spinning at various clubs and bars, and finally starting his revered label NDATL - New York Detroit Atlanta â€“ featuring music by people like Larry Heard, AndrÃ¨s, Theo Parrish and of course Kai himself.
And so here we are, looking forward to a new Sunday Matinee - for the first time in collaboration with Feiern - and Kai AlcÃ©â€™s first ever set in Belgium. As a little bonus we are also offering you the sounds of San Soda, the Belgian We Play House Recordings luminary, and Eklektiker, one of the men behind Feiern and a killer DJ in his own right. And as usual Red D won't be able to resist playing some vinyls himself. Itâ€™s houseâ€¦and much more than that!
Just like the last edition with Dixon the Sunday Matinee with Kai Alce will start at 17h on the terrace of Charlatan, and then move indoors as the evening progresses. We will provide you some much-needed finger food to wash away that hangover or battle that first dinner craving, while you enjoy the music and start getting in the mood for some good old knees-up back room action.
Tickets are limited to 200 pieces, and they can be bought in two ways:
1) Through Charlatan: http://www.charlatan.be/tickets
2) Wire the money to 448-4688841-56, mentioning both your name and the number of tickets you want. They will be waiting for you at the entrance.
As always: don't sleep!
