Heartbroken x Kfda w/Negroma & Alx9696 & nevrland & Liyo & Steff
So very happy to collaborate for the first time with the Kunstenfestivaldesarts, a festival we've always loved for its forward thinking program, artistic transversality, and commitment to work within all communities.
We've invited for this occasion two multi-talented artists who fiercely push further all kind of boundaries in their unique, personal but revolutionary way. The party will be taking place at the stunning Dynastie Palace, no cover, only mindblowing music
A Brazilian performance artist currently based in Berlin, Negroma creates hybridized dance and experimental music works for both stage and club environments. Since relocating to the German capital in 2015, the choreographer and budding composer's work has focused on exploring musicand the performative act itselfas an extension of their own body and needs. They have also been vocal about the need for legal protection of trans individuals in Brazil, describing Berlin as a kind of refuge. In late 2016, Negroma partnered with fellow Berlin-based producer Soda Plains for a performance project at the 3hd Festival, giving birth to a collaborative ep called "In Tongues".
Alx9696 (STAYCORE, Swe)
Alx9696 is the brightest of Staycore's label alongside fellow companions Toxe, mobilegirl or Mechatok, but he's also an ever evolving visual artist and inspirator for the free-minded. His mixes are probably the most heartfelt and beautiful that we've ever heard, plunging from Yiruma's piano lullaby to Dinamarca's rave anthems in the most organic, exhilarating way. Currently based in Stockholm, you may have heard him play his energy loaded sets at Berghain or on Boiler Room, and he regularly delivers shows for Nts Radio or Rinse Fm.
Emo adventurer and forever cult producer ssaliva (Ekster, Ptp fka Purple Tape Pedigree, Leaving Records and so many more) teams up with heavy drop lover and emotive selector Munix (Folie Douce) to produce some magical and truly heartbreaking melodies we can't live without. Heartbroken fam since day one.
Liyo & Steff
Liyo and Steff founded H E 4 R T B R O K E N nearly 2 years ago, bringing to Brussels a new generation of globally conscious and genre blending electronic music artists. With their night as well as their dj sets, they aim at offering performances challenging expectations from the club, and focus on emotion and reinvention rather than on a certain music genre.
