𝐑𝐚𝐟𝐚𝐞𝐥 𝐀𝐫𝐚𝐠𝐨𝐧 Rafael Aragon’s music is trance-inducing, powerful yet delicate, constantly changing and continuously breaking borders. Sweaty dancefloor stompers and soulful anthems with a magic touch inspired by forgotten traditions and ancient folklores from all around the world. Mystic chimes, ritual drums and witchcraft music meet raving kicks, deep basslines and electronic polyrythms to provide a rich, dancy and psychedelic experience! Goulash Disko veteran and ambassador, Rafael will bring some Komiza fire to Brasserie Illegaal, freshly landed after his first ever Japan tour. https://soundcloud.com/rafiralfiro https://www.instagram.com/rafaelaragondj/
𝐁𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝐎𝐫𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫 𝐋𝐈𝐕𝐄 Brass band balkan-anachronique, le Bernard Orchestar fait des pompes tous les matins. Sportifs et hors compétition, les champions de l’équipe à Bernard ont traversé l’Europe de l’Est en courant, jusqu’aux portes de l’Orient. Les joggeurs de demain reviennent maintenant avec un répertoire festif et athlétique, dopé(s) à l’électro. Ce que ces spartiates en survêt’ préfèrent, c’est suer sur scène. Ils branchent les synthés, lustrent les cuivres… C’est parti pour la boum du futur, nostalgique mais visionnaire, musclée mais sensible. Il faut s’échauffer avant d’y aller, mais surtout ne pas les rater! https://bernardorchestar.bandcamp.com https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCK-JgHgmqGKsJGVMsHTyqyQ
𝐀𝐥𝐦𝐚 𝐋𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐚 (𝐂𝐋) Based in Berlin, born in Chile and raised all-around western Europe, DJ, producer, journalist and activist Alma Linda is a dancefloor magician, with an open heart and a sharing soul. Her music breaks down borders and is inspired by rhythms from diverse cultural backgrounds, and united through the pulse of electronic beats. She blends these worlds, melodies and musical memories into her most personal stories, delivered right from her bare soul, preaching emancipation and self-love as a political act. https://soundcloud.com/alma_linda https://www.instagram.com/alma_linda_music/
𝐁𝐥𝐞𝐞𝐩𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐫 (𝐂𝐎) Luis Felipe Hernandez aka Bleepolar is a DJ / producer hailing from Colombia, bridging the gap between organic and electronic music. He learned music as a drummer, then took his knowledge into the world of music producing and later DJ’ing. Since his debuts as a techno and house producer, he started integrating the rich folkloric tradition of his homeland, with cumbia or champeta. As he develloped as an artist, he kept widening his inspirations to afro-latin music in general, and lately dived into the new sounds of urban Africa, focusing on genres like Afrohouse and Amapiano, while keeping the deep, minimal and elegant electronic aesthetic that became his signature sound. https://www.bleepolar.com/ https://bleepolar.bandcamp.com/
𝐅𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐦ï 𝐑𝐨𝐮𝐳 (𝐌𝐔) Logeshen Moorgan aka Fourmï Rouz, is a groundbreaking DJ/broadcaster/curator from the multiethnic subtropical island of Mauritius. Now pacing international stages sowing the seeds of musical multiculturalism with panache, Berlin/Zagreb-based jack-of-all-trades Logeshen Moorgan alias Fourmï Rouz has established a name synonymous with panchromatic groove science and genre-unbound open-mindedness, laying the foundation to a body of work marked by an inextinguishable thirst for music in all its forms and manifestations.
