Saturday 26th August - “Momentum Presents Andre Bratten [LIVE]”

Andre Bratten was born in Oslo and grew up in a suburb of the Norwegian capital, which borders on the deep, dark Scandinavian forest. Currently dwelling in the heart of the city, he is at the center of a huge boom in Norwegian electronic music which includes artists such as Todd Terje,

  • read more
  • Lindstrom, and Prins Thomas.  Andre’s tracks share the exploratory vibe of the 80's synth

    pop pioneers, and computes almost infinite variations on

    the sounds he could extract from a single modular

    synthesizer. Weird analogue squeegee smears, bright

    drum machine splats and occasional significant pauses.

    The spaces in his music are at least as important as what

    fills it and Like the best electronic dance music, you can

    follow sounds on their individual journeys through each

    track, and nothing ends quite as it started.

    If so much Scandinavian techno has been content to sound

    relaxed, steam-bathed and scrubbed-up, Andre Bratten’s

    music rejects coziness and whimsy, striking the right

    balance between dark and light.

Saturday 9th September - ALEX SMYTH LIVE

Umbra returns to Dublin to launch their Debut album ‘West’. “West” is inspired by Chris Guilfoyle’s solo journey along the entire west coast of the United States and Canada. The compositions try to evoke the various emotions Chris was going through while taking this trip from joy and excitement to loneliness and fear. Each members individual strengths are showcased in the compositions while at the same time blending masterfully into a cohesive and recognisable group sound. Drummer Matt Jacobson and bassist Barry Donohue lay down wonderfully elastic grooves, while the contrasting horns of soprano Chris Engel and tenor Sam Comerford make the most of the explosive front line in the company of Chris Guilfoyle’s intricate guitar playing.
Venue: The Loft: Doors: 8pm - 11pm  Admission: €12
