#AF19 Artefact Night (concerts + clubSTUK): Charlotte Adigéry, Alabaster dePlume & more
Into the night with concerts and DJ-sets on the edge of jazz, beats and global grooves.
Unfortunately, Moses Boyd has to cancel his show for family reasons.
He will be replaced by drummer/producer Michul Kuun (fka NAH), who presents his new album GREAT.
The rest of the programma, with 6 acts in total, stays as it was.
Artefact Night offers the best from London’s electronica-jazz scene in STUK Labozaal, followed by a seething clubSTUK in STUKcafé.
The concerts focus on London as a musical breeding ground for hybrid acts fed by migration, mobility and exchange. Sax player Ben Vince’s music is hard to pigeonhole. Using only his saxophone, he builds up melodies, textures and rhythms that hover between ambient and dancefloor. In the midst of the Brexit bonanza, word artist, sax player and full-time dreamer Alabaster dePlume brings an ode to positivism and diversity with his unforgettable live shows filled with humour, absurdism and delightful melodies.
Michul Kuun (aka NAH) is producer, percussionist and visual artist. A staple of Philly’s rich avant-garde scene, Michul Kuun is a prolific sound sculptor who’s developed a dynamic synthesis of textured noise and confronting percussive rhythms. Performing live with little more than a drum kit, various samplers and triggers, he channels a frenetic energy that teeters on the edge of violent hostility and playful chaos.
clubSTUK opens with a live AV show by WWWater’s Charlotte Adigéry, whose new album Zandoli is released by Soulwax’ DEEWEE label on February 8. On first single Paténipat, she declaims Creole lyrics on a repetitive train of Caribbean percussion and futuristic accents. The inimitable DJ Marcelle is known for her DIY-approach and eclectic three-deck DJ sets, melting together the most diverse styles and sounds from her collection of over 20.000 tracks. Closing act will be local hero Bjeor.
"An audacious solo album that ventures to the furthest reaches of experimental song, free jazz, uneasy ambience, and bristling techno"
- Pitchfork about Ben Vince
“One of the most thrilling performances I’ve seen this year; a reminder of how vital and adventurous music can be”
- The Guardian about Alabaster dePlume
“The guy absolutely blew my mind.”
- Gilles Peterson about Alabaster dePlume
