Find your dancing shoes – Apparat, Discodromo, Jori and Tiga comes to town

Apparat_002

If you are in Helsinki and have hung up your dancing shoes for good, you better take them down and give them a polish! Why? March is going to be sweaty, loads of good dj gigs coming up!

First of all, Im not sponsored by Adams! Its just that they are putting together an impressive program for their first anniversary celebration, which is kicked off by…

Apparat tomorrow (March 1st)! Seen him + band live, listened to some of his dj mixes and really looking forward to the new Moderat album later this year. So this is just a no-brainer, do not miss the chance to experience Sascha Ring spinning records for you!

 

On March 15th Discodromo will probably get most of the city’s bears to come out of their hibernation. Anyhow it should be a good one by a duo that has collaborated with Hard Ton and done a really nice edit of a Ilona Staller (better known as la Cicciolina) song.

 

And finally on Thursday 28th of March Tiga will play along with Jori Hulkkonen. The grapevine is that the gig will also be a release party for their new 12″. Friday is bank holiday so no need to take it easy…

 

Other notable dj gigs and concerts in March:

 

Sin Cos Stan @ Kuudeslinja

Calyx & Teebee @ Venue

Fatboy Slim @ Wonder Festival

 

So give those dancing shoes a shine and enjoy a great month of music!

Apparat

Some artist understands the potential of social media and its power better than others. Sascha Ring is one of them. He has made a new album under his moniker Apparat, and has chosen the fans to be the promo machine for it. Here is part of the statement to the fans:

“I decided to not do a single interview, skip the promo marathon and make it available for you asap. This time YOU are the promo machine. Please share if you want to support what i’m doing.”

I guess it worked! In less than 20 hours “A Violent Sky” has got over 40 000 plays and 4000 downloads on SoundCloud. Apparat also did a hugely successful Q&A just before he revealed the news on Facebook, in less than 5 minutes there was over 200 questions for him to answer.

The new album “Krieg und Frieden – Music for Theatre” will be out via MUTE on the 15th of February. It is originally a soundtrack to a theatre play of Tolstoy’s “War and Peace”, tweaked into an album format. Sounds good!

 

Enjoy!
