★ Off Week ★ Barcelona ★16.06.17
Clocking just over 6 years of hosting global dignitaries across Sydney’s cityscape, dipping our toes into Melbourne, throwing a 3 day festival, countless warehouse parties, a boat party, ViViD spectacular and birthing a world tour; S*A*S*H packs its suitcases once again to gallop across the globe..
The opening page of this chapter takes us to Spain – Barcelona, during their infamous Off Week. In cooperation with 510k Creatives we’ve enlisted a motley crew of live acts including some of our nearest and dearest to fly the yellow and black flag.
This only being the first stop – we think it’s a half decent way to kick off S*A*S*H’s 2017 World Tour.
★ andhim ★
It was spring 2010 when the Cologne natives decided to kick their ass into gear and get out of their Studio to bring their beats to the world. Less than 12 months later Andhim were voted in the top-ten German newcomers of Groove and Raveline Magazine and their records were found in the cases and remix-wishes of many unknown and famous DJ’s alike. Sadly, not ones we’ve had the pleasure of crossing paths with… yet, we’re confident they’re in good hands for a wonderful intro.
★ SESSION VICTIM(live) ★
Dons of classic house grooves, warmth and soulful synths, Hauke and Matthias bring a show few can shadow. Their live set pitches the energy levels up even further, the frenzied head banging of two friends jamming like their lives depend on it, now a signature scene. Expanding the tightly knit crew by another duo – we’ve spent a heap of hours rinsing their music and had a sneaky boogie or two on their recent tours Down Under.
★ dOP (Live) ★
A special preference of the three guys is their love for collecting instruments such as flutes, horns, percussions, glockenspiels, saxophones and many more. This is also a very big tick for the amenity between them, because most of the time they do all things together. Illness is also no reason for staying not together! Meeting in The Terrace of the humble Abercrombie and more recently at The Greenwood – there’s an outstanding reason they’ve been voted the best live act in the world.
★ Lake People (Live) ★
Creating the right atmosphere is essential for Martin Enke’s alias Lake People, so it doesn’t surprise that he prefers to play on his strength to create an arc of suspense with melancholic melodies that drive the audience relentlessly to his gently deep interpretation of house. After his release debut on KOLLEKTIV TURMSTRASSE’s MUSIK GEWINNT FREUNDE imprint in 2011, it was his Point EP in particular that fortified the typical Lake People sound.
★ Alexkid (Live) ★
Finding a place in our hearts, homes, ears and record bags many moons ago, our good mate Alex joins us with a rare live set. His past sets have gone down in S*A*S*H history as some of the best. One of the driving forces in the 510k brand, we’re humbled to be joining forces with him once more for our maiden event in the ’17 tour.
★ Julia Govor b2b Olga Korol ★
Russian born Julia Govor will be playing back to back with ODY arts’ Olga Korol, rounding off our special guest lineup for SASH’s first OFF Sonar party. Two acts whose talents speak louder than their promo, there is no doubt that this will be the beginning of many more global rendezvous into the future.
★ S*A*S*H DJ’s ★
Now it wouldn’t be a S*A*S*H without our residents behind the decks would it? GABBY, Jake Hough, Matt Weir and Kerry Wallace bring those signature S*A*S*H spices to Barcelona’s Off Week. Each accomplished musicians in their own right and sonically striking different chords, Gabby, Jake Hough, Matt Weir and Kerry Wallace all form the cornerstone and collectively influence the soundtrack that has become S*A*S*H.
