Moonlight Breakfast - Affection Tour / 17.05

Friday, 17.05. Open doors: 19:00. Start: 20:00

Moonlight Breakfast goes on tour to promote the release of their brand new album, “Affection”.

The Affection European Tour will start on the 10th of May in London and
we expect to see nothing less than the intoxicating, effervescent performance that we are by now used to. The elaborate visual experience that their show provides and their attention to detail make this a show you simply must see!

“Whether your musical poison is a killer rhythm, a punky attitude, an infectious pop melody, or a smooth and sultry vocal, or maybe even all three at the same time, Moonlight Breakfast offers something for everyone” Mary Chang – music blogger - There Goes The Fear (The SXSW music blogger’s guide)

Some of the first announced cities are London, Bucharest, Munich, Hamburg, Vienna. (for a detailed list of the venues and tour dates check the band’s website and social media pages).

If you want to get a taste of the fresh tracks you can check out the first singles taken from the album:

Look Up - a bold, seductive, dream pop track looking to inspire through the positive message. The song takes you deep in the 80’s, while the skillful production keeps you in the now. "Look Up" balances a feeling of weightlessness, as if you were lost in the vastness of the universe with the vibrant, pulsating pace of the more familiar everyday life.
It’s a trip to the Moon and back.
It already has over 500.000 streams on Spotify

Look Up

Summer - available beginning with April 19th, is the dreamy summer soundtrack for your hot weather adventures. Talks of the sweet sixteen worry free day and night dreaming take us back to when we did not know time pressure.
The hooky synth and vocal line transport you straight to the outdoor music festival you wanted to go to this summer.

Leeroy was one of the founding members and spent 10 years as part of The Prodigy on their worldwide tours, In 2011 Leeroy left the band to concentrate on his DJ career and his own solo productions.
Flightcrank - his band released their first album in March 2001 and his own productions have been mixed by the likes of Maxim, Adamski, Lee Scratch Perry, Mad Professor and Genaside 2.

After joining forces with renowned DJ Hyper to form the band Hyper, the release of the critically acclaimed Hyper album “We Control” was followed by the album “Suicide Monday”, both featuring Leeroy on vocal duty.

Leeroy has teamed up with German DJ / Producer Marten Hörger (a winner of two Breakspoll 2014 awards) to form a new production outfit Smash HiFi. October 2016 saw the release of the first Smash Hi Fi album ”Order More Disorder”, a heavy multi-genre collaboration that features vocals from Kym Mazelle, Lexie Lee, Ka, MC Sirreal and The Legionnaires. Music from this album featured on a KIA car ad. The Band took to the stage in 2017, playing Festivals across Europe, with the highlight being Glastonbury. The bands second album is well underway, with a 2019 release targeted.

His influence of different music styles also reflects in his DJ sets, bringing fresh new sounds mixed with some old school and classic edits.

Michi (Șuie Paparude) - DJ set

Șuie Paparude was born two decades ago, in a 5-man formula, which included a bass player (Mihai Dobre – Dobrică) and a keyboard player (Mihai Câmpineanu – Michi), having a distinct sound and style, inspired from the New Order era.

Starting with 1994 the band stayed in its duo formula – Michi / Dobrică and begun its real ascension. A 20 years long road, that was going to bear fruit to 9 studio albums, endless awards, collaborations with heavy names from the Romanian music scene and loads of live performances in clubs, festivals, stadiums, be it in Romania or abroad.

Freqax

Freqax is the indelible moniker that houses the searing frequencies of Romanian producer Adrian Andrei, a sonic creator enriched with a wide array of inspirations that have emerged in transcendently heavy forms through his many productions. The Freqax entity emerged through its first label platform in 2009, with the release of The Man with no Faith on Sinuous Recordings, during the first phase of the project, during which Freqax consisted of 2 members (the 2nd member, Adrenalina, left the project in 2012). Since that first release, the frequency and quality of the projects has evolved mercilessly, with singles and EPs on some of the decades most revered and hard-hitting drum & bass labels including PRSPCT, Othercide, Algorythm, Yellow Stripe and Forbidden Society Recordings, as well as numerous consistent and rising imprints.

The roots of his musical interests grew from authentic rave foundations through a love of The Prodigy’s music in ’94, exposure to which stimulated an interest in the production process and a fascination with the feelings that electronic music elicited.

Within the last 12 months alone, Freqax has released more than 33 tracks, with collaborations from fellow leading producers in drum & bass, including Counterstrike, Katharsys and Sinister Sounds, as well as remixing Agressor Bunx, Anatomix and Brainpan. The „Meant to Believe” LP saw support on Noisia Radio, and club play from a staller array or artists including The Upbeats, Dieselboy, Misanthrop, Evol Intent, Jade and Mind Vortex.

Concert Caritabil - Coma Light & Marú / 20.04

Lumeee, lume,

Acțiunea Copacul cu fapte bune 14 - ediție de primăvară, se încheie pe 20 aprilie cu un concert caritabil marca Coma Light, iar în deschidere cântă Marú.

Intrarea se face pe bază de donație, donația recomandată fiind de 30 de lei. Toți banii se depun în urnele aflate la intrare și vor fi destinați construirii Centrului social-educativ, pe care Asociația „Ana și Copiii” și-a propus să îl ridice în următorul an, pentru cei peste 100 de copii din București și Ilfov de care are grijă zi de zi: le oferă 2 mese pe zi, îi ajută la teme, îi duce în tabere sau la diverse alte acțiuni culturale, are grijă să nu le lipsească nimic.

Concertul începe la 6 seara fix-fix.

Mulțumim Coma, mulțumim Marú!

Marú este o compozitoare/interpreta multi-instrumentista din Romania, a carei ton cristalin de voce va face pe orice ascultator sa o asculte incontinuu. Dupa 6 ani de studiat la conservator in Viena, Austria, Marú a reusit sa isi dezvolte propriul stil de soulful pop, stil ce aminteste de Katie Melua, Angus & Julia Stone, Norah Jones sau Kate Bush, influente presarate in abundenta cu autenticitate, si acel "ceva" pe care numai ea il detine. Inca de la inceputul recent al carierei sale solo, marcat prin lansarea EP-ului de debut "The Richest Girl in Town", muzica sa a rezonat cu promoteri, directori de programe ale posturilor majore de radio, si cu fani din toate ariile muzicii. De la recitalurile si interviurile la posturi precum Radio Guerrilla, Rock FM, TanaNana, Radio Romania, la recitalul din 2018 la Electric Castle sau in 2019 la Hard Rock Cafe, Maru deja a ajuns sa confirme impartirea scenei cu Nouvelle Vague si Morcheeba in vara lui 2019, an in care va iesi si albumul de debut al artistei. Pentru cei carora le place sa asculte cu mintea, inima, corpul, Marú are un dar: muzica sa. Music by Marú.

Coma este una dintre cele mai iubite trupe de rock alternativ din Romania si s-a infiintat la inceputul anilor 2000, din fosti membri ai trupelor Daft Allison si Ska Burger.

Dupa ce incheie o intelegere cu cei de al A&A Records, in 2001, apare si primul album Coma "Somn", sustinut de cateva piese care au placut publicului foarte mult („Nu Vreau Fetito Casa”, “In Mine in Soapta”, “Stai”, “Bruce Lee vs. Vandam”), trupa fiind, totodata, nominalizata la Best Alternative Band @ Gala Premiilor Industriei Muzicale Romanesti, in anul 2002.

In noiembrie 2006, apare al doilea album al trupei: “Nerostitele”, produs 100% independent, videoclipul ce sustine albumul fiind “Coboara-ma-n Rai”, regizat de Marian Crisan, castigatorul premiului Palme d'Or pentru scurtmetrajul Megatron la Cannes.

Pe una dintre piesele acestui material (“Mai Presus de Cuvinte"), invitat special a fost basistul trupei Faith No More - Bill Gould, devenind astfel prima colaborare dintre un artist din Romania si un nume mare al scenei rock alternative americane.

Pe alta piesa (“Urmarirea"), alaturi de cei de la Coma se afla bunul lor prieten din scena hip-hop, Brugner.

Albumul ocupa locul 2 in Topul celor mai bune albume alternative ale anului pe site-ul Metalhead.

De-a lungul timpului, sustine zeci de concerte in toata tara, prezente la toate festivalurile importante de la noi, precum Electric Castle, Bestfest, Peninsula, Coke Live, Stufstock, Rosia Montana, StudentFest Timisoara, Artmania, Festivalul Snowboard Balea Lac, Mountain Bike la Poiana Brasov; Motociclism - MotoRock la Ploiesti.

Single-ul “Semn” apare in luna noiembrie 2011 cu o lansare de videoclip in Fire club. Piesa se bucura de un deosebit succes, fiind clasata timp de 2 saptamani consecutiv pe primul loc in top Radio Guerrilla.

The Mono Jacks - second show / 19.04

Vineri, 19.04. Open doors: 19:00. Live: 20:00 fix
Evenimentul este SOLD OUT, iar de la intrare nu se mai pot achiziționa alte bilete.
Afterparty: More Or Mess / Expirat / 19-20.04 de la ora 22:00.

----------

Mulțumim mult pentru aseară, București, a fost magic! Iar pentru că cererea de bilete a depășit cu mult capacitatea clubului, i-am convins pe cei de la The Mono Jacks să mai facem unul. Așa că vă așteptăm cu drag vineri, 19 aprilie, de la 20:00 fix (open doors: 19:00)! Dați vestea mai departe și ne vedem la concert – ultimul înainte de turneul din Germania!

----------

The Mono Jacks sunt o colecție de gânduri și emoții puse pe note. Vei simți asta cu ușurință dacă ajungi la un concert al lor și probabil vei remarca și că în spatele unei melancolii aproape permanente e o energie care te frământă invariabil.

Trupa fondată de Doru Trăscău în 2008 a lansat până acum un album și două EP-uri, primite cu entuziasm de public, și a adunat o bogată experiență de live atât în cluburi cât și la mari festivaluri: Sziget, Exit Festival, Eurosonic Noorderslag, ARTMania. Cele mai noi single-uri, „Un Sfert de Secundă” și „1000 de DA”, se regăsesc pe noul album de studio „Ușor Distorsionat” lansat de trupă în toamna anului 2017.

The Mono Jacks înseamnă:
Doru Trăscău (voce, chitară)
Andrei Zamfir (chitară)
Cristian Chiru (bass)
John Ciurea (tobe)

Unflicted - lansare album Naiade / Breathelast / 08.05

Miercuri, 08.05. Open doors: 21:00

Povestea Unflicted a început în 2015 și se scrie încet dar sigur așa cum apa sapă văile din munți lăsând în urma timpului, adâncime. Am ajuns și în acest punct de cotitură în care apa s-a învolburat și se lovește de stânci, cum face Dunărea la Cazane. Asta pentru că ne lansăm primul nostru album. După 3 ani în care am lăsat apă limpede de izvor să curgă în versuri și muzică, pe 8 mai construim primul baraj cu lac de acumulare. Primul pe un curs ce își propune să genereze multă energie de-acum încolo!

Invitați speciali: Breathelast.
