KOSO CLUB pres: Juliana Huxtable
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».
Denne gangen har de med seg artisten, djen, forfatteren og kunstneren Juliana Huxtable!
Artist, DJ, writer, and performer Juliana Huxtable is one of the most singular voices in the contemporary art world, drawing inspiration from the white cube as much as the dancefloor to explore complex socio-political issues, and using her body to pose questions to historical structures.
Originally from Texas, Huxtable moved to New York to study at Bard College, where she graduated in 2010. She began participating in the New York queer scene by hosting transgender inclusive parties known as SHOCK VALUE, with recent parties featuring queer DJs such as Shyboi, False Witness, and Joey Labeija. She shot to fame in 2015 after exhibiting new work for the New Museum’s Triennial, and modeling for a 3D sculpture created by Frank Benson.
As a DJ, Juliana Huxtable offers dynamic DJ sets inspired by emerging forms of techno, hip hop, and experimental music, co-influencing artists and DJs like Total Freedom, Venus X, and the Janus crew. While being regularly booked at music festivals and club nights as a DJ, she has most recently begun touring a live performance entitled Triptych, an ensemble piece with musicians Joe Heffernan and Ahya Simone. Presented in three parts, Triptych explores the desired subject dissolving into their flesh through fear, joy, and excitation. Huxtable is also the author of Mucus in my Pineal Gland, a collection of her poems, performance scripts, and essays, which succinctly maps her critiques of gender, sexuality, whiteness through a historical scope.

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.
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 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.
SVANI 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».
piiksi isnít unknown on the dance floors of Oslo –
but itís not often sheís in charge of whatís playing
(whatís popiní!?). Quality triumphs quantity and she deliveryís bangers every time. Expects a great deal of bass, dewbow, riddim, hip hop and of course guilty pleasures in original packaging
