Founded at the end of 2016 by three DJ*s, the band combines 80s ecstasy with the atmosphere of fog shrouded, strobe-lit dance temples of the techno era. The combination of urban electronic music’s gritty drive with Julia’s French-German vocals reminds some critics of a more forceful version of Anne Clark. Rue Oberkampf forges a bridge between cold wave, synthpunk, EBM and techno. Their live shows pull audiences into a maelstrom of sound, neon and storms of light. After early crowd pleasers “Caméra” and “Congélation” in 2017, Rue Oberkampf released their debut EP“Waveclash” on No Emb Blanc / Genetic Records in 2018. After scene hit “Kalt”, they released “Sans Toi” as limited 7” on Circonstances Aggravantes / Berlin. In October 2019 „Christophe-Philippe“, the first long player, was released on Young and Cold Records / Augsburg with great fanfare within and beyond the scene. Listen!
Ani Kcam is a DJ and producer based in Brighton, UK, who attempts to solicit movement and rapture whilst refusing to conform to strict genre-centric constraints. Eclectic and unpredictable DJ sets rest on twenty years of crate digging, net searching and party-making, resulting in dynamic, increasingly intense and euphoric performances. Although keen to fully explore contemporary global club sounds, there are clear referential links to the rich history and development of dance and rave music over the last three decades. Listen!
Passionate about electronic music for many years, Oscar C started sharing his music in a bar in Funchal in 2007. The quality of his sets stood out right away. Over the years, he received several invitations to perform at private parties, after parties, and various staple venues in the Madeiran nightlife, such as Mini Eco Bar, Barreirinha Bar Café, Garden, Living Room, DTox, among others. His eclectic selection, his presence, performance and DJ style always pleasantly surprise the audience as he has truly refined his technique within the Chill out, Deep House, Melodic House, Organic House and Progressive house vibe.
