This summer we celebrate 5 years of ACUD MACHT NEU in the backyard of the cultural center and former milkhouse. Every wednesday evening together with former partners and friends of the house we have prepared an eclectic program throughout the summer with concerts, performances, talks, drinks and aperitivo by Feinkost Minutillo.
For this new Acud Macht Sommer night, enjoy a modern pop DJ Set by Berlin-based Finnish musician Jaakko Eino Kalevi and the pop-trap of French singer, songwriter and electronic musician Sarasara.
Jaakko Eino Kalevi
... Combining synth-pop, folk, funk, and psych-rock into trippy experimental pop, multi-instrumentalist Jaakko Eino Kalevi grew up in Jyväskylä, a city in central Finland. He began making music as a boy after discovering Dream Theater’s prog-metal and hip-hop, teaching himself how to play guitar and use beat-making software before exploring reggae, disco, techno, and more. Kalevi issued a string of releases reflecting his omnivorous musical taste, including 2010’s coldwave-inspired album Modern Life and 2013’s hazy, fittingly named Dreamzone EP. Last year, he released his second album for Weird World, 'Out of Touch', where he explores what he calls this “essential, blissed out” state and advice us to swtich off from hyperconnectivity.
... returns with captivating second album Orgone, out on 5th July via One Little Indian Records, co-produced with Liam Howe of label-mates Sneaker Pimps (who has worked on albums by Nülifer Yanya, FKA Twigs, Tom Vek, Lana Del Rey etc).
Sarasara released her debut album Amor Fati to acclaim from The Fader, The Guardian, The 405 and more – as experimental as it is versatile, taking in elements of industrial electronica, trip-hop, r’n’b and breaks. Her latest body of work sees her explore further her unique breed of leftfield, avant-garde RnB, singing in her mother tongue, French, and dealing with suicidal thoughts, existentialism and meditation. The artist moved across the water from Paris to Margate at the beginning of last year, and the record was written there, featuring collaborative tracks with her neighbour, Peter Doherty of The Libertines.
“Really unnerving in the best way.” The Fader
“sarasra is a captivating creative presence” The 405
