Subbacultcha at S.M.A.K.: Croatian Amor + BEA1991 + Crystallmess | 24 October - 8 pm
Subba’s back with another episode of this smacking series of trailblazing gigs in Ghent’s Citadelpark. This month, we’re proud to be featuring probably one of the best rosters we’ve ever had.
So buckle up, sharpen that hearing and sight, and get ready to gasp for air, ‘cause there won’t be time for chilling. Here’s what we’ve got cooking for you:
We’re in the last months of the year, so we can hear you coming: talking best albums of the year? Here you have one serious contender: Croatian Amor’s Isa. The specs: vocal contributions by Yves Tumor, Puce Mary and Soho Rezanejad, a fascinating mix between ambient, industrial textures and pop touches, some unpredictable, wild song structures and rhythm patterns and a masterfully balanced play between darkness and light that wanders through the whole album. Classic!
Multidisciplinary artist BEA1991 just keeps on getting better. This Summer she released her highly-anticipated first full length Brand New Adult. an intriguing record full of arty r&b and trip hop, co-produced with Benny Sings and Sneaker Pimp’s Liam Howe. The single My Own Heaven comes with a must-watch “art-documentary film”, featuring BEA1991 on the world’s largest cruise ship. Oh and yep, it’s her singing on Blood Orange’s E.V.P..
Parisian DJ, producer, writer and mixed media artist Crystallmess will present her Collective Amnesia: In Memory Of Logobi performance, a pluridisciplinary project tackling the process of the loss of facts, post-colonial alienation and club culture.
