RF13: ELOQ (Review)

eloq

At 17:30 yesterday the time was set for bass, when the danish producer and dj Eloq went on stage. There is no doubt that people want electronic music, because there was a lot of people despite of Vinnie Who’s opening of Orange 30 minutes later.

With a mix of trap, reggae, soft bass and hardstyle it was more or less all about bass. Eloq started out with some trap to start the party but already after 10 minutes into the set he had to grabe the mic and tell the audience to take care of each other (a way too common thing on Apollo) I don’t know if the two reggae numbers was planned or it was like he said: “Haha – i tricked the moshpit”, but it seemed strange in relation to the rest of his set. It worked much better when he choosed to turn the bpm up to 140 and some sort of hardstyle for a short while blasted out of the speakers – it was a nice wakeup call in a set with mostly trap. It also shows the diversity that Eloq posseses, which often lacks at other producers.

The highlight of the concert was without a doubt the guest performances by MØ and Linkoban and from my point of view shows where Eloq is best: as a beatmaker. He is a great producer and DJ, but his music are just better as beats with vocals on. With his talent and diversity he could be the danish Timbaland/Neptunes, which are also shown with his work with CHEFF.

A lot of bass and a great party was not enough this time and sorry but “We’re The Champions” does not belong at Apollo even though it was a great attempt to get people to sing along.

RF13: Baauer (Review)

It’s easy to see that EDM really is spreading and so it shined through Baauer’s DJ set at Apollo. A lot of recognizable vocals and tracks was essential through out the gig. With this said, it was an amazing concert that was off the grid! With ofc consisting of trap primary and touches of electro and hardstyle on the side. Crowd wise it was strongly represented – this is definitely because of the trap genre spreading so fast at it does. Visuals was nothing serious. We had a fucking blast and jumped throughout the hole concert. Concert wise – because we have to – it lacked some visuals, energy and the real Baauer.

4/6 Wicked trees.

SUNDAY 30.06.13 – 22:30 – APOLLO COUNTDOWN

Yesterday we came back from 3 days at the sunny island Bornholm. We went with these three guys who’s from there. We have been writing tons of posts about them and you should definitely know them by now. They are Denmarks finest when it comes to moombahton and trap. They’re playing at Apollo 22.30! We have heard some of the tracks from their playlist, so we know its gonna be huge. People will be jumping their shit in to pieces. Go to Apollo tonight and you will NOT regret it – this is going to be one of the best concerts at this years Roskilde Festival.

DJ and producer trio Nonsens has put the sunny, Danish island of Bornholm on the neon-blinking map. The guys get the party going and set your adrenaline ablaze with a poisonous green mix of rave, electro, hip hop and trap.With bad-ass beats, freaky remixes, and pitched, brash synths, Nonsens have true sound anarchy and pure party vibes written in their agenda.  

RF13 – SEKUOIA (DK)

He is danish, young and talented like few else in our little country. Patrick or Sekuoia’s (so hard to spell to!) career  have the last to years only went one way and thats up! On top of that he is a really nice guy, so we suggest that you swing by to experience him. There is a great possibility  that we under RF gonna have a little talk with this guy about his debut on the big stage.

RF describes:

Sekuoia’s crackling and lingering electronica has already had him signed with acclaimed Berlin label Project: Mooncircle. Sekuoia combines the organic with the electronic in a dreamy meltdown. Dry beats, synth washes and copy/pasted vocals conjure echoes of both dubstep and atmospheric ambient. The painterly soundscapes of the young Dane are equal parts night club after midnight and stalactite cave at dawn.

RF13 – Disclosure (Live)

disclosure

The closer we get the more enthusiastic I become towards this booking – Disclosure! Their huge hit “Need U (100%)” is all over the radios at the moment. The guys definitely have something extra and you don’t wanna miss out on the opportunity to hear’em before they rise to top – cause they will. They are capable of performing live (as you can see in the video below) and are also up for a serious DJ-set as you can see in their performance at the notorious Boiler Room with Skream. Video also featured below.

RF describes:

Two young brothers are climbing towards the top of the British electronic scene right now. They operate under the name Disclosure, and on their first single release they have paved the way for the future of pop, house and dubstep.

It’s chic, urban and touches upon several hot spots on the electronic genre map. If you want to see what tomorrow brings you should definitely check out Disclosure.

Guy and Howard Lawrence’s debut album doesn’t come out until the spring of 2013. Nevertheless, they have already been close to the UK top 10 with the pop song “Latch”.
