KOSO CLUB pres MECHATOK
med residents Soldal, SVANI, hanneks og piiksigram
KOSO CLUB er tidligere kåret til årets beste klubb av NATT&DAG
“et beinhardt klubbkonsept hvor du kan danse deg glad og svett samtidig som du tramper på patriarkatet i takt med bassen”.
Den 26. november tar vi med oss Berlin-baserte Mechatok som er kjent for sin abstrakte og euforiske tolkning av popmusikk. I sine DJ-sets sjonglerer han klubbmusikk, melodiske rytmer og rap, hvor følelser fra sårbarhet til lykke formidles.
KOSO CLUB sine egne resident DJs, SVANI, Soldal, hanneks og Piiksi vil varme opp, rundt og forbi som vanlig!
As a teenager living on the outskirts of Munich studying classical guitar, Timur Tokdemir began to explore club culture on his trips to Berlin, which ultimately led him down to a different path. Rather than pursuing a career in classical music, Tokdemir relocated to Berlin and released his first EP “See Thru” that put him on the radar of the international electronic music scene. Starting out with collaborations with Yung Lean and Palmistry he soon had amassed a catalogue of euphoric, minimal pop nuggets. After touring the States, Asia, South America and Europe even before he hit the age 21, Tokdemir materialized his unique style in earnest on 2018’s stark All My Time, released on Lorenzo Senni’s Presto!? imprint to wide acclaim. With brightly colored synths and only a whisper of percussion, it advanced Senni’s template and pushed it into further corners of the globe, touching on dancehall and other global pop sounds. The following years he continued his exploration of new angles on pop and electronica by putting out undeniably catchy collaborations with Bladee and Ecco2K, video-game soundtracks such as 2020”s “Defective Holiday” and mixes that all make use of his unmistakable handwriting. In the end of 2021 Mechatok released a collaborative album with Bladee, followed by a remix album that featured Charli XCX, Evian Christ and more.
hanneks has managed to develop her own sound through both her recorded mixes and standing behind the decks. 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 waves rhythmic, bass driven music with laser sharp synths in her own genre bending way. Throughout the past few years Soldal has made herself visible in the DJ scene playing across influential venues and festivals in her own country Norway and in Europe.
She has released music through Soul Feeder, Ashida Park, Classical Trax and HTS. In 2020 / 2021 Soldal released a collaborative EP with Danish Circuit 900, followed up by a remix EP with remixes from Slick Shoota, Miss Jay, Ballo, CXLI and Miracles.
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.
