[Electronic/Hip-Hop]
THU 16 Jan
Simplon, Main
23:45 – 00:30

Immersed in electronic fields, Glauque wanders between anger and love, quiet and loud, between questions and certitudes. Here, where filth is beautiful, words and sounds collide while feelings keep coming. Unleashed as raw hip hop meets crafty electro in the dazzling world of the talented Belgian. Then silence… a fragile intimacy plunges us back into reassuring tenderness.

THE BRUMS

[Jazz/Soul]
FRI 17 Jan
Der AA-Theater
00:20 – 01:05

With a mix of brass, synths and some intense beats, the Liège quartet known as The Brums want their public to dance. Completely eschewing loops, everything is performed live with each musician tackling multiple instruments to deliver an expansive and dynamic sound world. The result? A techno-infused, beat-driven, rollicking good time, playing out very well on their debut EP as well.
