Multi-instrumentalist Tom Relleen and drummer Valentina Magaletti (Raime, UUUU, Vanishing Twin) comrpise one of the most hyped bands in experimental circles at the moment. Their percussion-driven music draws on everything from industrial, psychedelia and Steve Reich's minimalism to jazz and techno. It is characterized first and foremost by an unbridled curiosity and an equally tight and driving as well as open and investigative live show.
Tomaga breaks repetivie patterns and foreboding synths with dubbed effects and improvised rhythms to a kind of psychotropic dance music, constantly stretched between abstraction and structure. A phenomenal band, which should be experienced live. Or as the BBC wrote; "the best band in the UK right now."
The concert is a part of an exclusive four-day tour organised by Alice, Tape, Studenterhuset Aalborg/Danish Vaishias and Teater Momentum.
Iris Gold invites you into her world of "hippie hop" - a colourful and infectious fusion of retro hiphop, soul and power pop, with a generous dose of flower power. After sharing the stage with some of the greatest artists in the world, as well as working with some of the most influential producers, Iris has proved that she is now ready to conquer the world.
Live, Iris Gold is a huge infusion of energy, which can best be described as Janelle Monae meets Erykah Badu. She is looking forward to going on her first tour of Denmark, and says "I will be coming with my sexy band and together we will hold a huge party, in the best block-party style."
With West Coast melodies as her background, Iris Gold has continued to expand her musical horizon after falling in love with classic hip hop acts like Pete Rock, Beastie Boys and De La Soul. And she has managed to fuse all these influences into her own music, a mixture, which according to the British newspaper The Guardian can best be described as “Deliciously summery and laid-back at a time when most pop seems to want to make you have a heart attack”.
In November the single, "All I Really Know" was released and there is much more music on the way from Iris Gold.
