WHO?:

PALMBOMEN II

Kai Hugo is a real artist, someone who makes music to dance to, but music that is constructed like a proper song with a real narrative. Whether making it for the club, at home or a film, it is his quest for unusual harmonies and absorbing grooves that stands him apart, as well as his complimentary work in video clips and 3D animation.

He works with a minimal toolset, often on tape, so he can focus on structure and emotion rather than production. As a live artist he is the same: someone who puts his collection of old synths into storytelling mode and sets off into a surrealist yet welcoming unknown.

He does this as group orientated collaboration Palmbomen, or on his own as Palmbomen II, which was also the name of his 2015 album on Beats In Space. It found him “program the rhythms, arrange the harmonies, play these together, and record to tape,” in a simple yet effective process that conjured up an album of perfect imperfections. On it, you can hear him ride Oberheim DX faders in real time, improvise Arp 2600 patches at the turn of a track and drip sweat across Roland TR-909 keys. Imbued with a sense of the sci-fi atmospheres he loves in shows like X-Files, the extra-terrestrial mood takes you from this reality to the next with a sense of intrigue and inquisition.

After that came a conceptual four-part 12" project built around eulogised muse Cindy. Typically melodic and rather insular, it gave rise to music doused in otherworldly nostalgia and grainy atmospheres that was all cooked up intuitively and instinctively. The morose melodies and haunting atmospheres of the album came even more to life with Palmbomen’s self-scripted and directed videos and films. Hugo’s visual practice provides a separate view of the Palmbomen II venture: a surreal, neo noir-ish California dislocated by the no-frills aesthetic of its music, and the tragicomedy of its imagined characters. Sombre, surreal and absorbingly melancholic, the album was a complete realisation of a unique and imagined musical universe that seemed devastatingly real.

Of course, he also works as Betonkust & Palmbomen ll with Betonkust, and together the pair crated the beautifully nostalgic, hardware only album Center Parcs for Dekmantel in 2018. It was an esoteric electronic pop record with hazy melodies and roughhewn edges, fuzzy house and dusty grooves that followed EPs on 1080p and Pinkman. The pair also play live together and take you into a similarly dreamy, heartwarming musical world something akin to an imagined retro paradise.

The future will see Palmbomen’s Cindy presented as a pop singer, “somewhere between Britney Spears and Julee Cruise” as well as many more albums and projects. All of these are ways for this multi-instrumentalist and esteemed composer to get lost in a world that is part imagined future and part reimagined past.

STELLAR OM SOURCE

Stellar OM Source is the music project of Christelle Gualdi, a French-Italian producer, DJ and architect born in Paris and based in Belgium. Active for more than a decade, Christelle’s acclaimed 2013 album Joy One Mile and Nite Glo (2015), both on the boundary-pushing New-York label RVNG Intl., firmly established her as an artist to watch out for. Both releases settled her musical direction. She creates enveloping environments, given shape by the rush of live performance. She brings elements of techno, house and new-wave into a unique musical palette, marking out her signature of emotive uplifting melodies and contagious, bassline-centered grooves. Returning to music production after a 3 year break she released the EP I See Through You on Dekmantel and was profiled on Resident Advisor.

Christelle’s renowned all-analog live sets create electrifying and energizing experiences.. Her DJ sets also have a distinct style: genre-melting, rich in rhythms, stories and references, they can bring dark heaviness in late night settings as well as sensual vibes for soundtracks. Not surprisingly, she has toured and performed in most of Europe’s forward-thinking clubs and music festivals and appeared on dance-floors across the world from Rio to Bangalore. Christelle is also a passionate practicing architect and artist with different creative outlets. She has been selected for the 2020 edition of the European SHAPE platform.

DJ MESSIAS

DJ Messias, founder of clubs like "Flying Saucers Are Real" and more recently B a g g e r h a r t, turning the Antwerp nightlife upside down for over two decades now. Deejaying with unparalleled nonchalance which makes his sets utterly eclectic. BLESS THE MES(S). Amen.

AWSTEN

Techno veteran Awsten, with numerous appearances in the Belgian techno nightlife (1998-2008) from Fuse Club Brussels and Silo Leuven to Kozzmozz Ghent to I Love Techno, shared line-ups with Robert Hood, Jeff Mills, Dave Clarke, Kevin Saunderson, Newworldaquarium, Aardvark, Black Dog, B12, Ra.H, Kirk Degiorgio,... and is now popping back up on the radar after a +10 year hiatus. His eclectic and dynamic sets span several decades of high energy dancefloor waves.
