On the tipping edge between mainstream & underground, Eastern Europe suburb embossed artist FVLCRVM is a celebration of unpredictability. ADHD distorted production of niche club genres meets mellow pop musicality with reinvented 90s vibe. Borrowing a name from a mad Russian jet fighter FVLCRVM found a form in inconsistency. Picked by Spotify as #1 for their renowned Fresh Finds Playlist, the first track featuring FVLCRVM’s own vocal Hi! went viral and was soon featured by BBC Radio 6 Music. This gained the Bratislava based artist immediate attention by tastemakers like Mary Anne Hobbs or Machinedrum. With his even more successful follow up Words, which also made it to Song Of The Day selection on KEXP, FVLCRVM offered a crisp and eloquent take on pop music and provided the viewer with a peek into a mind-blowing version of a dystopian future. On the most recent Attentioncore EP released in summer of 2020 FVLCRVM proves himself once more as an exceptionally talented artist and sheds light on the creative buzz within the Eastern Europe. When it comes to production the multi-instrumentalist skillfully combines the modern club and electronic music with catchy pop hooks and sociocritical lyrics all put together in a clever and refreshing soundscape. FVLCRVM's live shows erase the bridge between a DJ set and live performance and caught the attention of the directors of Reeperbahn and ESNS already last year. After the pandemic year of 2020 he is now more than ready to get back on stage as soon as possible.

DJ support by Kristian Davidek and Moska

Kristian Davidek is a tastemaker and artist who regards the performing bit of his DJ sets as an integral part of the experience. “Make You Feel” is both slogan of his show on national radio FM4 and the guiding line of his music sets. Appearances change from a mirror-ball-helmet wearable on one day to playing back to back with a drummer the next. Expect edgy Disco and House music as well as a good portion of Techno and Breakbeat, mean synth basslines, melodic hooks, dark vibes and percussion. And a little Italo in between never hurt no one. Kristian has a played a number of clubs and performed on relevant festivals including the infamous Fusion in Germany, Lighthouse in Croatia and Frequency as well as ImPulsTanz in Austria. When asked about his favorite gig of all times the answer always is: “The next one”.

Moska is a vinyl only DJ and multimedia artist from Ljubljana (SI) currently residing in Graz. Collecting and exploring all facets of music since she was little, she plays a wide spectrum of genres from hiphop, afrobeat, funk to breaks, footwork, juke and so on. She is a selector and founder of a weekly radio show on online Radio Nula called Mishmash Mo'!, part of a DJ duo DJ Saraieva, occasionally collaborates with Radio Helsinki (Radio LoPass show) and organizes events on her own.

Admission from 16 years, doors open 10:00 pm.
Tickets in the advance sale: €12,- / €8,- for Workshop- & Research participants (available only at our day box offices)
Tickets at the evening box office: €15,-
