Bar World Series 7: Maboku Nervoso Panda Lassow Afrobot JJAQ

Bar World Series 7: Maboku Nervoso Panda Lassow Afrobot JJAQ

Bar World Series #7

Barplus proudly presents Bar World Series 7. As you might already know, Bar World Series is an event that consists of several nights filled with live music, concerts and DJ sets fueled with sounds from around the globe. The nights are curated by the finest (inter)national selectors, who will take you on a journey through different corners of the world. The purpose is to show you guys the local-gone-global grassroots of modern electronic music and how they have influenced our favorite artists.

For our 7th edition we asked Roeland Otten aka Afrobot to curate the night. He decided he wants to focus on a contemporary (pan-) African music genre, more specifically the techno-ish kind of (originally Angolan) Kuduro sound that is coming from Lisbon these days. Principe Discos is the label that is putting forward the talents from different crews releasing tracks in this new style since 2013.
Afrobot thinks it is important to promote a night with a fresh contemporary (pan-) African sound as these newer genres, like Kuduro, Qgom, Shangaan Electro or Afro Trap are only popping up sporadically in Dutch clubs. Afrobot wonders why Afro music in Holland (or in Europe) still mostly refers to dusty old records by Fela Kuti and Mulatu Astatke, and we hear lots of obscure Nigerian boogie and South-African Bubblegum in our clubs, not that he doesn’t like those records as well, but we shouldn’t miss out on what’s happening now.

DJ Nervoso, born in São Tomé and Príncipe, a Portuguese-speaking island nation in the Gulf of Guinea, off the western equatorial coast of Central Africa, but based in Quinta do Mocho, periphery of Lisbon for more than 2 decades now, is the main reason why DJ Marfox, DJ Firmeza and many others started deejaying and producing, hooked on his fiery DJ sets since they were barely in their teens, around 2001-2002. He is well known for a bare bones approach to rhythm, working the basic hypnotic feel of pounding drums to mesmerizing effect, in his permanent quest to make people move. His sound is meant to unite, not divide, the dancefloor. Even before he started producing, Nervoso was quick to perceive that some people were alienated in parties where Angolan Kuduro got played, for the simple reason they didn’t command the specific moves associated with the style or its variations. So his production focused on adapting the beats of this much-loved dance music, changing the codes for a more inclusive experience. Some call it techno.

DJ Maboku was born in Luanda, Angola, but soon fled with his mother the then civil war plaguing the country seeking exile in Portugal. The mannish boy became stuff of legend still in his teens by making free mixtapes for high school Kuduro dancing squads that pursued him madly for his fresh skills and suave iconoclastic vision.
Dj Maboku has been in the past few years an insuperable regular on Príncipe’s monthly party ‘Noite Príncipe’ at Musicbox club in Lisbon, and has been playing out consistently more around the country and venturing unto the euroland (like last year’s Lowlands festival).

Panda Lassow
If there is one local dj that is already for many years up to date with contemporary world music, with a special love for heavy Bass styles, call it ‘Tropical Bass’, it is Panda Lassow. She runs the label Anus Records, has her residency at Red Light Radio and is heavily involved in the Dutch beats-scene. She played before on nights with Maboku and Nigga Fox from the Principe label.

JJAQ
Johan Jeff Kofi Amenyeku (born May 12, 1995), better known by his stage name JJAQ (stylized as JJΔQ), is a Dutch recording artist and DJ from Rotterdam. He got noticed by Afrobot through his first Operator set, which was characterized by a brought selection of African rhythms from Afro House to Coupé Décalé. Coming from a basic Hip Hop background it’s interesting to see his curiosity lead him to different sorts of African music and his mixing skills show a deep understanding of the poly-rhythmic patterns.

Bar presents Mall Grab & Ben Fresh

More info

Mall Grab is known as one of the scene’s fastest and youngest rising stars. Being only 23 years old he already has quite some hits under his name, and is known for his laid back lo-fi dj sets, throwing in the occasional hip hop beat. Hailing from New South Wales, the young Australian has been impossible to miss, and has relocated to London due to high European demand for his fun-filled, on-point DJ sets.

It was very clear for us we needed Ben Fresh to warm up the night for Mall Grab. The two guys play equally as uplifting, and have the same positive aura. Expect a night of non stop dancing and smiles.

BAR presents Ben UFO & upsammy

We are really excited to finally have Ben UFO over, one of the few dj’s in the UK who hasn’t had a production career to fall back on and so his fame is only to thank to his selections and mixing skills. And boy is he good at this! As a result he remains in a position to fully explore sounds both old and new, across the worlds of house and garage, dubstep and grime, and further into the past. Ben UFO is a dj who is very able to get people interested in music that they would normally maybe never listen to, he presents it in such a different and fascinating way that you can’t not love it.
Newbie upsammy will open this night. We found out about her trough one of our favourite labels Nous’klaer audio where she released some outstanding productions which are just as special as her dj sets. A very young talent to keep an eye on!

Bar presents Lena Willikens, Interstellar Funk & Job Sifre

Bar presents Lena Willikens, Interstellar Funk & Job Sifre

As a DJ, radio broadcaster and producer, Lena Willikens is never committed to one style, all is welcome as long as it is twisted the in a one-of-a-kind way. Lena likes to let her self go in the name of dance and free thought. Her unforeseeable selections are pooling obscure proto-techno, jacking spirits, industrial boogie, synthesized disco, raw house and other outernational rhythms.

Olf van Elden aka Interstellar Funk is a unique artist in today’s world of clean electronic music esthetics. The young Dutch producer is an analogue sound lover with a keen ear for timeless melodies. Both his dj-sets and productions are daring and thought provoking, always keeping an ear for the new, while blending in the roots of house and techno music and dropping the occasional new wave or afrobeat record along the way.

Known for his enthusiastic, happy-go-lucky approach to DJing, Job Sifre has earned a reputation for making parties move to music that borders on the serious and challenging. Sifre made his production debut on Interstellar Funk’s Artificial Dance label in the autumn of 2017 with an impressive EP entitled Worries. It’s nothing less than a six-track distillation of Sifre’s many and varied influences, re-shaped and re-packaged in his own distinctive style.

Bar presents Optimo + Jetti & Post

The DJ duo Optimo (J.D. Twitch and Jonnie Wilkes) has originated from the legendary Optimo night in Glasgow organised by the same two men. The duo mixes up techno, electro, rock and other assorted records out of leftfield. Actually they mix up whatever floats their boat at that moment. The clubnight Started in 1997, after the two had been DJ’ing separately for about ten years. The night was founded as a reaction to DJ’s playing techno all night long.
“I didn’t care whether it would work or not, or whether anyone would go, it was just something I had to do,” says Twitch. “I love DJing with all my heart but at this point I was so bored with seamless mixing – it was all just too obvious, too predictable and too easy – that I had to do something to preserve my (in)sanity.”
This is what you will still hear in their DJ sets, doing this for over 20 years now!

Bar’s very own Jetti & Post will take care of the first hours.
