Unique electronica phenomenon from the UK

 

A new season means a host of new partnerships. This time, Vooruit is opening its new season of music with an evening of adventurous electronica in partnership with the Brussels-based collective Slagwerk.

 

To start things off with a bang, we’ll welcome UK electronica phenomenon Gazelle Twin for what will be her only show on Belgian soil this year. She’ll present her new record ‘Pastoral’, coming out on 21 September on Anti-Ghost Moon Ray. Gazelle Twin is the name under which performance artist, composer and producer Elizabeth Bernholz unleashes her dark, industrial avant-pop on the world. Her widely acclaimed LP ‘UNFLESH’ (2014) was an intensely personal concept album on gender identity and phobias, while ‘Kingdom Come’ (2016) was a straight-up dystopian nightmare.

 

Gazelle Twin’s latest release, ‘Pastoral’ is again a concept album, a deconstruction of the English identity and the murky relationship between the artist’s present and past.

 

With ‘Pastoral’, Bernholz has created a terrifying soundtrack to a fascistic and troubled future, making use of antiquated instruments such as the harpsichord and leaning into rave-like house. As with her previous, JG-Ballard-inspired AV show for ‘Kingdom Come’, Gazelle Twin’s latest live show promises to be another unique and eccentric performance.

"The first bit of evidence that Elizabeth Bernholz's next album Pastoral - due out in September - could be her best to date". THE QUIETUS


“Will likely be one of the year’s very best records.” CLASH

 

Amnesia Scanner 

Het in Berlijn gestationeerde Finse electronica duo Amnesia Scanner - Ville Haimala & Martti Kalliala - brengt op 7 september hun eerste full album ‘Another Life’ uit op het avontuurlijke label PAN. Verwacht je aan experimentele, psychedelische ambient en een knetterende liveshow. Ontdek nu al het voorsmaakje ‘AS A.W.O.L.’, inclusief hypnotiserende videoclip. Ervaar de gehele trip in Vooruit!  

 

 

ssaliva

ssaliva trekt de avond op gang. Hun melancholische ambient electronica & hypnagogic pop vond alvast een plek op fraaie labels als Vlek, Noto Not Fun en Eskter. Man achter het project is Luiks wonderkind en bezeten werkpaard François Boulanger (ook gekend van o.a. Cupp Cave). Werkpaard is zelfs nog een understatement. Halfweg 2018 bracht hij al drie nieuwe platen uit op labels als Collapsing Market, JJ Funhouse en Slagwerk. Live nooit minder dan verpletterend goed!
