Klein & Lolina W/ HEARTBROKEN X LISTEN
The Brussels Future Music Festival is back with a special early evening edition to present you the live shows of Klein and Lolina.
► LOLINA - Live
(ex-Inga Copeland / Hyperdub, Hippos in Tank... UK/EST) Alina Astrova is now settled on the alias Lolina after being known as Hype Williams (with Dean Blunt), Inga Copeland, and more recently just as Copeland. Her productions have developed a distinct aesthetic: difficult, discordant, melodic and sultry. Her latest self-released album Live In Paris runs parallel to Blunt even though they’ve worked independently for over 4 years; tackling issues such as hostility, immigration and social inequality in London. That might sound hard to digest but her hazy vocals consume her words into her plodding melodies to create something uniquely beautiful. (words. by Subbacultcha)
► KLEIN - Live
(Howling Owls Records, NON... UK/NGA) Situated somewhere within the realms of electronic music, Klein's take on pop is seriously mysterious - and increasingly admired. Her disordered, dystopian offerings with their scattered statements on identify include the EP Lagata and the album Only, which have won fans in the form of Arca and Dev Hynes. Raised between London, LA and Ibador and citing Andrew Lloyd Webber as a key influence, one thing you can be sure of is there's nothing quite like Klein. (words. by ID)
► LIYO & STEFF - Dj set
Liyo and Steff founded HE4RTBROKEN nearly 2 years ago, bringing to Brussels a new generation of globally conscious and genre blending electronic music artists. With their night as well as with their dj sets, they aim at offering performances challenging expectations from the club, and focus on emotion and reinvention rather than on a certain music genre.
