Heavy Rotation presents Ruff Karnage!
A night of relentless breakcore, jungle, and techno overload. A live event with a performance by Rotterdamn’s ruffest dreadlocked subsonic slayer : Bong-Ra. With a brand skanking new album out called Monolith expect his hybrid sound of breakcore, jungle, dubstep and metal to punish our soundsystem and lay waste to your perception of music.
Furthermore representing Overboard : DJ Camouflage & DJ Raptor bringing the junglinst vibes and in Heavy Rotation’s corner : Nick F. & IXXXI letting techno rip up the place.
So get ready for our season finale, an epic meltdown of breaks, beats and bass! This is the last edition of Heavy Rotation for this season – but rest assured, when you’re all tanned and rested from your holidays, Heavy Rotation will be back!
The end of the season is upon us again, time for summer holidays, warm weather (we keep our hopes up!), sleeping in, relaxing… But not before finishing the musical season with a bang, with an old familiar friend: The Serious Beans Project!
Where rap meets salsa, where reggae meets jazz,where the living room meets the stage, where gypsy is played by classical hands and where nothing seems in place but sounds like many places. The Serious Beans Project is a two-year old music project. Musicians from seven corners of the globe, whose influence add to the taste of a music that sounds genuine, organic, delicious…like beans! A World Music mix, salad of global vibration to dance, jump, scream, sing, forget troubles.
Support for this evening is Trikosis. Trikosis stands for multicultural, gypsy, folk, incomparable energy and an exciting sound. You can try, but we’re sure you won’t be able to stand still on this. And the good thing is, you don’t have to!
Reason enough to come and celebrate the start of the summer with us, we’d think!
Exclusive warm up show for the new festival season!
You thought the music season was coming to an end? No way! We’ve got another awesome surprise for you: Milow is coming to the Muziekgieterij! Milow, also known as Jonathan Vandenbroeck, reached world game in 2008 with his beautiful cover of 50 Cent’s Ayo Technology and has released three studio albums since, the last one in 2011, with singles such as You And Me (In My Pocket) and You Don’t Know. He played shows in over forty countries and has his North-American debute this year.
Milow makes lovely, sometimes a little melancholic pop songs that clearly shows his heroes’ influences (Ryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen, Jack Johnson), but with a true Milow flavour that indicates his own ideas and tastes. It seems obvious to us: you can’t miss this, so be sure to make it to his show!
