RADAR x ADE: Mayo, Lenxi, Okitap & Kimmah
Milky Way RADAR goes ADE! On Thursday evening, October 19, the Melkweg will present a special ADE edition, curated by Mayo, one of Amsterdam's finest musical four-legged friends. The artists coming to perform will bring their drum machines and studio equipment and present brand new live sets. Genres such as EBM, techno and downtempo electronics will predominate this evening. Come and be surprised!
With a focus on downtempo electronics, EBM and techno, Amsterdam-based DJ/producer Mayo interweaves a wide range of musical styles. In doing so, she follows the ghosts in her cables and creates compelling tracks driven by sinister drum programming.
Mayo will translate all this into an intriguing live set during Amsterdam Dance Event, including her Melkweg debut!
We also host the talented London-born, Amsterdam-based artist Lenxi. Starting as the lead singer in a punk-electro band, Lenxi ended up in the dance scene. Lenxi's tracks are personal and vulnerable, but can also be rough and are characterized by heavy breakbeats, her childhood Casio, UK-ness and acid. In addition to her debut EP that will be released later this year, we look forward to her hybrid (live) set during Amsterdam Dance Event!
The Dutch-Turkish Okitap came into contact with music at an early age through the collection of Gabber recordings that his father listened to from a pirate radio station. Inspired by, among others, the Thunderdome series and the niche genre Witch House, he developed an affinity for heavier music styles, usually around industrial and techno. Inspired by artists such as Nene H and Parrish Smith, he is working on a personal sound, with the aim of giving his audience a new experience of Turkish music.
Okitap has now further developed his live show, of which he will perform his musical vision during Melkweg RADAR.
KIMMAH (DJ SET)
Kimmah from Utrecht regularly appears on the line-ups of clubs such as BIT, Garage Noord, OOST, Pip and POING. Her energetic sets contain acid, breaks, punk and rap with lots of bump and grind, making Kimmah a workout for the whole body on the dance floor. She also often pays tribute to her origins by using sounds from the emerging scenes in Vietnam. A rising name that should certainly not be missing from our line-up
