Taking place on the 7th of September at Prince Charles, the first Luxembourg Sounds Like… in Berlin will be the perfect occasion to (re)discover Luxembourg’s most interesting and promising electronic acts: Cleveland, John Talabot’s new protégé, who’s already delivered intense live house/techno shows and dj sets in Europe’s best clubs, the electronica duo Napoleon Gold, a project in which electronic sounds are mixed with energetic drums, smooth Rhodes and reverberating guitars, and AAMAR, a prolific and skilled producer who’s influences range from jazz to experimental hip-hop.
Cleveland brings a strong element of story-telling to his tracks, often combining long runtimes with a progressive and trippy feel. Andrea Mancini splices together mystical synths, mischievous basslines and drops that roll so effortlessly into one-and-other they’re hypnotic. These qualities are what have caused heavyweights such as John Talabot, Axel Boman, Massiomilano Pagliara (and many more) to regularly drop tracks from his debut on Oskar Offermann’s respected Berlin imprint WHITE.
Bewitching arrangements, warm low-pitched vocal samples and rousing percussions are NAPOLEON GOLD’s favorite tools when producing their ambient electronic tracks. Jerome Klein (Piano/Percussions) joined electronic producer Antoine Honorez (NAPOLEON GOLD) in 2015, adding intensity and character to the live performances. The mix between electronic sounds, guitars, piano, percussions and subtle improvisations make each show a unique experience.
Aamar is an electronic ambient producer with a touch of Soul and Hip Hop roots. He started out more as a record collector in 2006 and then got influenced by J-Dilla and the whole LA beat-scene who pushed him to start producing music. In 2011 he jumped into electronic music after listening artists like Toro y moi, Chromes Sparks,Tycho and many, many more…
