SOTU Festival presents a night of concerts and dancing featuring:
SOTU presents DJ NIGGA FOX/DJ KOLT/MATAKLAP/GUM TAKES TOOTH/JOHN EWBAND/BORIS SCORPIO
Dj Nigga Fox (Rogério Brandão)
Rogério Brandão aka DJ Nigga Fox is one of the prodigies who has been
causing a stir in and beyond the burgeoning Lisbon scene. Hot on the
heels off prominent festival appearances at this year's Roskilde and
Sónar, Nigga Fox will be making his Amsterdam debut at this SOTU
Festival event. Nigga Fox inimitable sound takes cues from the Príncipe
label roster and collective, as well as fresh sounds from Angola's
capital Luanda. His refined hybrid is informed by kuduro, afro-house,
tarraxinha, batida, and mixed up with house and techno.
DJ Kolt is the spearhead of Blacksea Não Maya, a young DJ crew from the
south side of the Tagus river that splits Lisbon and its periphery.
B.N.M. (Blacksea Não Maya) which also features DJ Noronha and DJ
Perigoso, have been regulars at Príncipe's monthly residency at Musicbox
club in Lisbon. Like Nigga Fox, B.N.M have been garnering much
crititical acclaim; their first EP release was widely applauded and
became 'Album of the month' in SPIN's 'Control Voltage'. DJ Kolt is the
most established one of the group at this point, and is keen to test the
crowds in the north, trailblazing through B.N.M.'s original tracks,
showcasing a vibrant style of progressive Batida yet to be named.
Gum Takes Tooth
Two man everything machine endlessly seeking what-the-fuck aural
mesmerism in a maze like arrangement of physically overwhelming rituals
of dance music, sound system culture, doom and pan-cultural
psychedelics. Each member focusing intently on unmediated rhythmic
interaction between crowd and performer, directing the energy towards
unexplored altered states. Dark primal frequencies are felt and not
heard, unremitting circular drums shatter and rebirth whilst a cast of
vocal characters provide an astral guide through these dizzying
manipulations. - See more at: http://www.gumtakestooth.com/about/#sthash.YTzxSRQS.dpuf
Free music and noise musicians from Amsterdam. The JOHN EWBAND is an

under the name Schelvis en de Pekels. Bandmembers: Hellash, Frank Vis,
H.A. van Hees, Dr Snoodaard and Stephen Doyle.
Mataklap makes and mixes beats and bass from everywhere, blending both
solid and subtle forward-thinking electronica with a heavily
Dancefloor wildlife, hit-and-run
parties, feral electronics, untamed audio, fine-tuned lo-fi, worldwide
wobble, migratory riddims, uprooted bass, nomad soundsystems, concrete
jungles, organic metropoles, hightech squats, lowlife glamour.
Boris Scorpio will take you on a wicked trip through pulsating rhythms and far out sounds, on board of his modular spacecraft.
Also, it's his birthday, so buy him a beer.
