Sugarfactory | Lijnbaansgracht 238, Amsterdam
During Amsterdam Dance Event, Sugarfactory presents a night full of the most exciting electronic live acts of the moment: the danceable electronic pop of Pablo Nouvelle, OIJ and Superpoze.
Pablo Nouvelle’s music is an exciting combination of processed samples and soulful vocals on a danceable beat. He recorded his debut album in 2013 at home, which was quickly picked up by English music institutions like Mixmag and BBC Radio 6. The album reflects his love for hip-hop and the soul and funk music that inspired the genre, from which Nouvelle makes his own futuristic blend. This year the producer returned with the album ‘All I Need’, released on Armada, the record label of dance music authority Armin van Buuren. The album features less samples but more live instrumentation, and prompts associations with artists like James Blake, Bonobo and the XX. The Swiss has also remixed tracks by the likes of Marina & The Diamonds, Sailor & I, Gorgon City and Aurora. Pablo Nouvelle knows how to translate his studio efforts to live performance, as his impressive shows have proven at talent showcase festivals Great Escape in Brighton and Reeperbahn in Hamburg. Sugarfactory is more than happy to have him on stage during ADE!
The Amsterdam-based singer-songwriter and producer OIJ (Only In Japan) describes his music as ‘cinematic electro-pop’ and is truly a one-man project. With the use of cinematic soundscapes and danceable rhythms he perfectly captures the vibe of the excessive Japanese nightlife. Last year he was nominated as 3FM Serious Talent, and his debut single ‘Blinded’ reached the top 10 of most shared tracks worldwide via Spotify. Thanks to a unique light show, OIJ creates a spectacular live performance that pulls you right into his world.
The producer Superpoze has made a name for himself soon after he started making music. As part of a new generation French beat makers, he is most productive. Early on he played at significant French festivals like Transmusicales and Montreux Jazz Festival. After several EP’s on his own Combien Mille Records and Kitsuné, he released his debut album ‘Opening’ last year. The album departs from the mechanic instrumental hiphop that characterized his sound, and embraces a more eclectic and organic sound. Superpoze developed the album in part while on tour, and the music is more than capable of taking you on that trip.
