Tickets via Tikkio
Shook is an independent producer, composer and musician based in The Netherlands. After graduating at the University of the Arts in Rotterdam he released his first electronic solo work. In his own words his work is inspired by “timeless forces such as love, change and art and originates from the 70’s, early 80’s synth-pop, disco, funk to anime and futuristic soundtracks”.
Listening to the latest productions of Shook is like watching a Ghibli movie with compositions by Joe Hisaishi. While balancing in the twilight zone between awareness and epiphany you can feel the influences by many artistic and obscure composers and musicians, Shook creates a personal form of electronic music. Creating its own melodies on vintage synths, acoustic pianos and recording drum shots to build his rhythm patterns.
With absolute devotion Shook has created an exceptional listening experience in which timeless influences of Hiroshi Yoshimura, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Steve Reich and Erik Satie are honored and thoughtfully integrated in his modern, energetic sound. Shook merges Japanese ambient and Indonesian gamelan with an uplifting mixture of electronic pop, jazz and funk. Inspired by city pop, techno pop and ambient Music for City and Nature spreads a new light on the contrasting balance between what we make and what we are.
Get ready for a dancy highlight of the summer on july 15th!

DJ ルレフィン (read: Rulefinn)
Since being sparked by Akira, Ninja Scroll and Fist of the North star at a very young age, Rulefinn has had a strong love for Japan. 15 years ago he finished a two-year study in japanse after a half year stay in Sapporo, where he kept digging into otaku-culture, mainly computer games but also City Pop – which pretty much translates to an epic disco like genre wave from 70s Japan. Since then, he’s built Norways biggest vinyl collection of japanese Disco, City Pop, ambient, funk and soul. This weeknd you’ll have the whole specter served on a silver plate (or record) divided into both yoga classes, lounge and the good ol’ dancefloor!
