Stakladen Live and Studenterhus Aarhus have been cooking up a new initiative for electro lovers during winter, when the rest of us have been in hibernation.
The concept is called Electric Waves and the 18th of February will be the first of many arrangements, where bands will meet their electronic music fans in a fusion of hard beats, cold beers and a lot of bass.
Electric Waves is an initiative to enhance the electronic music scene in Aarhus, and with Kenton Slash Demon and the Gang OK as the first bands to kick off the party, we can only expect this concept to get big!
Stakladen and Studenterhus Aarhus have managed to book some pretty skilled and acknowledged musicians for the first gig.
Kenton Slash Demon might seem unknown to ears new to the electronic scene, but Jonas Kenton and Silas Modelhawer are actually the artists behind this name, and both being members of When Saints Go Machine their sound may seem familiar to many anyway.
With the Copenhagen-based duo’s new release ‘Harpe og Syko’ they are mixing house and techno while adding their own personal touch to move across these different music genres. And with their prior experience in the electronic genre they have set their name in stone on national as well as international grounds.
Another must have experience for this event is The Gang OK. As partly local, they know exactly what to bring to the electronic audience in Aarhus to make them break out in crazy dance offs. With their wild, up beat tunes and soft vocals, Martin Bejder, Kristian Kamp and Mikkel Stokholm will show a competent mix up of Electro, Acid, House and Pop at Stakladen Live.
The first Electric Waves will actually be a release party for their EP ‘NOEMA’ released on the 13th of February. It consists of 4 danceable and nicely mixed tracks perfect as party starters. Listen to it already now or be sure to be presented to it at the event at Stakladen Live.
So join in for the first, but not the last Electric Waves concert, surely not to be missed. Keep your eyes and ears open for more electronic and pumping live events in Aarhus. There IS more to come during spring!
