Sven Väth, DkA Live, Joyhauser and Kapibara

  • SVEN VÄTH is quite simply unique. A legend in his own lifetime with a commitment and passion that has influenced the advance and evolution of electronic music. Clubs, record labels and careers have been launched. There are some people that are destined to emerge and change things. Change landscapes. Sven Väth is a risk taking visionary, an instigator, an innovator and very possibly invincible. 1981 and Frankfurt it started. Quickly the figurehead for a techno revolution in Germany that was to spread far and wide. Worldwide. Setting sail alone, this was 1981 and this was new. The Omen Club and so many other adventures punctuated this period, getting the sound out there . Vinyl then, vinyl now. Parties that mattered and changed things. Parties that reinforced a vision and eventually gave birth to Cocoon. An extraordinary residency in one of the best clubs in the world was unleashed in 1999. Cocoon Ibiza, Amnesia on a Monday night. Now 16 years of parties that have set new standards in production and have never compromised on what matters. The music. An incredible risk became, and still is, one of the great successes in modern music and clubbing. A phenomenon now attracting upwards of 80,000 visitors in a 4 month season with Sven Vath front and centre throughout. Along with Cocoon Ibiza Sven created a booking agency (now Flash Artist Booking - targeting the best and the brightest), an event agency (Cocoon Event – spreading the vision across 5 continents and now over 30 countries) and a record label (Cocoon Recordings - with a back catalogue stuffed with quality) that gets ever more important and keeps on growing. www.facebook.com/SvenVaethOfficial Since 2000, starting out of DkA, several side-projects such as 'Brussels Pony Club', 'Comute' or 'Kelket' have already been realized, highly appreciated, signed and finally released by various labels such as Lift Your Head Up, Blank Slate or Paranoid Dancer. Beeing inspired by Hiphop-, 70’s Funk - and Jazz music, DkA tends to merge all this influences whilst maintaining a solid minimal tech and deep house feeling. For serveral years now, the belgian producer DkA is traveling all over Europe in order to perform in clubs such as Watergate, The Zoo Channel, Kater Holzig, Sisyphos, Ritter Butzke, Prince Charles, Badaboum, Machine du Moulin Rouge, Fuse, Labyrinth, Spartacus or Café d’Anvers. Recently, DkA released some several solo EPs on label such as Amselcom, Bruxsel Jardin Records, Play Label Records, Bade Records; several remixes on Sender, URSL, Raw Roots and he also presented a project achieved in collaboration with Igor Vicente on Mobilee Records, Get Physical and Hot Creations. www.facebook.com/DkAprod JOYHAUSER has been destroying dancefloors all over the country for quite some time now. They hold up an impressive arsenal of hard-hitting beats accompanied by captivating and melancholic strings. Submerge yourself in raw techno, epic harmonies and lose yourself in their sonic saga. When Joyhauser displays their extensive armory, you will surely remember. www.facebook.com/joyhau5er Hailing from the Amazone riverbanks in South-America but stationed in the South of the Netherlands: meet KAPIBARA. This semi-aquatic trio is known to infuse their cultural heritage when creating electronic dance music in the studio together. Kapibara’s signature sound floats somewhere in between deephouse and techno. Converging feeling and emotion into a pallet of natural grooves. Whether they deejay or perform live, these chameleons bring great adaptability to their sets and as a resident of the infamous Labyrinth club and hoster of Taka Tuka, they have the perfect homebase to do so. www.facebook.com/Kapibara Table reservations mail to: [email protected]
