KOSO CLUB i samarbeid med Liveurope pres: Merca Bae
KOSO CLUB er kåret av NATT&DAG til årets beste klubb (2017) –
«et beinhardt klubbkonsept hvor du kan danse deg glad og svett samtidig som du tramper på patriarkatet i takt med bassen».
I 2020 tar vi med oss spanske Merca Bae som er kjent for sin mørke klubbtilnærming til dembow, dancheall and reggaeton. 🖤
KOSO CLUB sine egne resident DJs, SVANI, Soldal, Hanneks og Piiksi vil varme opp, rundt og forbi som vanlig! ♥
When his name began to appear on the social media, Merca
Bae’s identity was unknown and mysterious. Now we know
him as Spanish producer Alejandro Silva, a skilled creator of
rhythms for the club and known all over the music scene.
Very influenced by genres such as reggaeton, dembow and
dancehall, his underground approach and dark sound has a
perfect dynamic with the currents of urban music and mainstream sounds.
His productions have stablished Merca as the creator of some of the best club bangers in the underground
scene. After several compilations and mixtapes available for free download on his Bandcamp, Merca Bae published his ‘Místico EP’ last year, which was well received by press and public, and that has led him to travel through different continents because of his ‘Místico World Tour’ and play at festivals like Sónar Festival or CreepyTeepy, without forgetting clubs like Berghain (Berlin), All Club (Shanghai), Cakeshop (Seoul) and Razzmatazz (Barcelona); and selected on platforms like NTS, Radar Radio, Rinse FM and Shanghai Community Radio.
After touring in Europe, Canada, United States and Asia,
he moved back to his country and became one of the most
valued producers and DJs on the Spanish scene; which has
led him to be Akabadgyal’s DJ, have his own radio show ‘Místico
Dubs’ on Radio Primavera Sound and run his own night party
called Nocturna. Being described as one of the most ground breaking artists bringing reggaeton’s future Merca still finds its comfort grounds on dancehall and industrial beats creating a style mix just as daring as familiar.
Hanneks has managed to develop her own sound through both her recorded mixes and standing behind the decks. Originally from Trondheim, the Oslo-based DJ has in a short period of time filled her DJ-resume with both small and big gigs at clubs, underground raves and the 2018`s Pstereo Festival in Trondheim. She likes to play a mix of melodic rhythms, hip hop references and heavier tunes crossing into the techno genre.
Alongside being a part of KOSO CLUB, she is a resident DJ at Lokal Bar in Trondheim. Running her own club concept, klubbanneks, where she gathers forces from Norway`s club scene and gets the people of Trondheim dancing.
SVANI I is one of the most interesting DJ & producer that Norway has to offer. She made her debut at Boiler Room London in 2017 and got praise from The Fader for her fast-pacing set. She’s been playing at clubs all around Europe and of course Norway where she played at Øya, Slottsfjell, Pstereo, Insomnia & Bylarm. SVANI made bubbling mixes for among Truants, RinseFM, TripleJ and Thump and have been praised by Resident Advisor and NestHQ with her eclectic blend of R&B, hip-hop, dancehall, kuduro og dembow. She’s even released songs through LA-based Unspeakable Records, Classical Trax and the label HTS and run a club night in Oslo with the female collective KOSO CLUB. Be ready for what TRUANTS describes as a «special kind of club vibe that makes you smile and nod to your friends before stupidly punching the air in joy».
Soldal weaves rhythmic, bass driven music with laser sharp synths. Soldal is co-founder of the femme focused creative collective KOSO and the club concept KOSO CLUB. Throughout the past few years Soldal has made herself visible in the DJ scene playing across influential venues and festivals in Norway, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Berlin, Lisbon, Barcelona and Paris. She has played alongside artists like Zora Jones, MikeQ, Total Freedom, Kingdom, collaborated with dancers from Kiki House of MERAKI and made clubbing mixes for Rinse France, Cómeme and the renowned American record label Mad Decent / Good Enuff co-founded by Diplo.
Piiksi is not an unknown face on the sweaty and dark dance floors of Oslo – but it’s not often she’s in charge of what’s playing. Quality triumphs quantity, and she bringing it to ya every time.
Expect a great deal of bass, dembow, riddim, hip hip and guilty throwback pleasures in original packaging. Places that has been graced with PIIKSI behind the decks are Oslo Pride, BLÅ, Lokal Bar (Trondheim), Landmark (Bergen), Internasjonalen, HYSJ and Dattera.
KOSO CLUB for the love of club art and people. Part of KOSO family.
