Überraschungsgast – MORGAN O´KANE (please scroll down)
DJ CLICK: Polymorphic artist DJ Click has long been an accomplice of the most ebullient projects: with the extravert Rona Hartner for tsigane traditions as well as the gnawas of Essaouira, pending his Zuco 103 brasileiro or African mixes with Issa Bagayogo. His field of predilection: moisture-filled dance floors where his mixes ardently pulsate a range of Mediterranean musical styles. Incorporating tsigane, oriental, klezmer, flamenco or gnawi rhythms, DJ Click delivers techno, drum’n’bass on another mode, and in another time zone… Those of the future! A universal, communicative and festive language, with tonic accents and over- energized tempos, making bodies talk…http://www.myspace.com/djclicknofridge
ANDYLOOP: DJ and Producer Andyloop is one of the key figures in the Barcelona music scene and always keeps connected to the new music trends, shall they come from the Balkans, New York, the Maghreb or South America. Andyloop deftly throws together breakbeat, funky, house and a wide range of styles to deliver mixes. Alongside his friend Wagner Pa, he co-founded in 2004 the highly acclaimed club night ‚Brazelona Sessions‘, which hosted the biggest names of ‚Global Beats‘. As a producer he has remixed various tracks. One of them featured on the compilation ‚Turntables on the hudson 10th‘, an album that commemorates the anniversary of this famous party in New York. Both his trajectory and his creative style, uncovering rarities and original remixes, have placed him as one of the most wanted DJ’s in the Spanish panorama.
‚Wir freuen uns Morgan O´Kane , den ‚Reverend‘ , auf seiner Europatornee zu einem kleinen Abstecher auf die ost klub Bühne einladen zu können. Der Banjovirtouse wird uns ein Showcase aus seinem Programm präsentieren, ca um 22h on Stage, dont miss ist!‘
Every so often, just when you think the well is dry and the tradition is dead, you are gratefully reminded that there is still water down there and that the tradition was only sleeping. Morgan O’Kane from Charlottesville, Virginia is one of those reminders. A virtuoso banjo player, shouter and activist now based in New York City, Morgan recalls two other transplanted legendary southern artists; Reverend Gary Davis and Aunt Molly Jackson. Like the reverend, Morgan honed his skills making a living as a busking street artist. Like Aunt Molly, he has kept his connection to his Appalachian home and its issues, taking part in the campaign to ban mountaintop removal mining, which destroys the land and the people who live on it.
