dART+ Machine Vibes Presents | Fjaak [GER]
“Bassy, UK-referencing rhythms rumble over clanging chords and domineering 909 percussion. The combination is exhilarating.”
– Resident Advisor review of Fjaak’s release Gewerbe 15 / Rush.
dART+ kicks starting 2016 with the thriving energy of FJAAK, a talented triplet from Berlin. These three boys are blessed with loads of talent, which shines through in everything they touch.
Fjaak sets are full of Machine-like Vibes; normally thought of as two opposite concepts, they engineer a combination of both vinyl and live, creating an energy filled performance.
Since their establishment in 2009, Fjaak attracted worldwide attention with an alternative and boundary pushing take on classic techno, house and breakbeat. The young Berlin residents are constantly searching for new ways of expressing their unique musical identity. Their music is mostly based on hardware jams capturing both the soul of a one-take recording and the energetic fusion of three individuals.
After early releases “Remember Me” and “Mind Games” became underground-hits and were played by heavyweight DJs to big crowds, their bulging schedule turned them into full-time musicians, focusing on music production and international touring. Half a year after their first EP on 50 Weapons label, they debuted with their live set at the notorious Berghain as the youngest hardware only act to date. Now they are based in Prenzlauer Berg, living centrally and close to airports for frequent out-of-country bookings and are regular DJs at Berghain.
We’re excited to celebrate with you and Fjaak, the first of many dART+ parties in 2016!
