Tonight sees the premiere for a new club venture. Pure Purpose and friends are behind the Sweat concept. We have secretly listened to his mega mix all week and can promise it will be funkalicious and fantastic.
Don’t Blame The Youth visit the best club for party-goers at H62. Residents Brint and Meekus play between ten and twelve. At midnight Vemdetta, Tinkiet, and Mell-B take over. It will be techno-testosterone, kuduro and the best Baltimores.
Who doesn’t love soft synth pop, hard bass and lyrics in dodgy English? When 80’s dedicates the night to the world’s most encouraging music genre and invites the great Italo disco enthusiast, DJ Galliano, be prepared to go to bed late with major pains in your feet.
We don’t really know how many times we’vegone on about Slick now. But we just have to do it one more time. Pjotr and Patti are two of the best and on Saturday they meet in a colourful DJ-duel. The last time Slick took over Kägelbanan we saw our favorite professor Tiina Rosenberg smile at everyone. Now we’re hoping for a repeat.
Culture clashes are exciting. At least when the best of two world meet in one huge electronic music party. We are obviously talking about Fuse, the club that brought together synth pop enthusiasts and electro-hipsters in one large heap of glow sticks and dyed hair.
Stockholm continues to be spoled with top-notch concerts. Onyx and Saigon are coming here on Friday. Put your fists in the air.
A big thank you to the Swedish Music Club. We love you with all of our heart. We have listened to The Keys continuously for two weeks. Rubies. Debaser Medis. Friday. Heart.
In My Tree is Swedish photographer Jenny Källman’s first individual exhibition in Stockholm since her graduation from Konstfack in 2002. With their subdued shimmer and painting-like expression, Källman’s photographs describe both strange and completely normal parts of daily life. Her work often touches people who find themselves between the ages of youth and adulthood, a time that is willingly portrayed in film and literature. You can now see Källman’s work at Crystal Palace.
Swedish photographer Mats Eriksson presents his third individual exhibition at Mia Sundberg Gallery. In the new photo series, Architecture for the Poor: An Experiment in Rural Egypt, he examines a specific Egyptian city project south of Cairo, designed by the architect Hassan Fathy.
