Minimal techno’s gigantic quartet: live set from Stavroz
Stavroz senses the minute mood changes of the audience to offer unique and exceptionally unrepeatable experiences for the stage, the venue, and their audience, always with live sets. A quartet that not only transcends electronica forward as an exuberant dance music, but also exchange ethnic and acoustic elements with jazz in an unprecedented, organic way. Stavroz was born in Ghent, Belgium, where two DJs and sound engineers, IJsbrand De Wilde and Gert Beazar, initially came together, and were instantly lauded for their sets and exchanged stage antics. A few years later, Maxim Helincks and Pieter De Meester joined them to evolve into one of the most performance-orientated DJ teams of all time. On the shining path that extends from The Ginning, the first evidence of their invincibility in electronic music, to last year's Kick Up The Dust, they won numerous awards, and recorded many chart-topping tracks for Kindisch, Bedrock and their own Moodfamily label. With more than half a million monthly listeners on Spotify and thunderous performances at festivals such as Coachella (USA), Fusion Festival (DE) and Pukkelpop (BE), Stavroz has irrefutably become timeless over the years.
‘Live’liest form of electronic dance music: Parcels
Parcels have been hailing from Berlin for years now, but actually all five members of the band have their roots in Byron Bay, Australia. Parcels released their titular debut album in 2018, which was praised as ‘cheeky, timeless and devilishly catchy’ by pop music authority NME magazine. Their follow-up, Day/Night, was met with thunderous applause in the UK by Rolling Stone. A live stage favourite, the band played to sold-out crowds around the globe last year, including the Hollywood Bowl in LA and SummerStage in Central Park, NYC, their most extensive tour to date, drawing Daft Punk comparisons. Gradually departing from their funk-leaning period, Parcels continued their live disco recordings with Live Vol. 2 recorded at Le Palace in Paris, with tracks climbing up to 130 BPM. Live Vol. 1 was recorded at Hansa Tonstudio – the landmark studio that shaped David Bowie’s Berlin era. The chance to see Daft Punk live may be long gone now, but the opportunity of seeing Parcels live on stage in full spring is certainly not to be missed.
The concealed ‘fatale’ coming to seduce Parkorman: La Femme
The dizzyingly fresh representative of French psychedelia that waved the baton at Salon last year, will travel back to Istanbul to seduce a new batch of audiences. Founded by keyboardist Marlon Magnée and guitarist Sacha Got, La Femme has grown to become one of the coolest, most surprising and most ‘rock and roll’ bands in France, with five albums to their credit released in the last 13 years. Their debut album in 2013, Psycho Tropical Berlin, received a golden disc and the Album Revelation of the Year Award at Victoires de la Musique, aka Grammy equivalent of France. Their 2016 follow up Mystère topped the French album charts and carried them to the headline of the 6,300-capacity Zénith venue. In the past two years, their work has accelerated. Their all-Spanish language album, Teatro Lúcido, which they designed as a diary of their travels to Hispanic countries, was followed by another road album, Paris-Hawaï, released last year. According to Michael Hann from The Guardian, La femme ‘tries on a wardrobe of different clothes – psychedelia, surf rock, electronica, krautrock and more – and ends up looking fantastic in all of them.’
