Description

Friday, July 19, 2024 Doors 10PM Advance Tickets on sale now. For Afriqua, genre is just a limit to the imagination. With the instincts of a classically trained musician and the hip-hop sensibilities of a turntablist, the Berlin-based creator blends gleaming disco with energetic house and techno for dancefloor excursions that defy classification. Recorded following a breakup, his new EP MAXI SINGLE is embedded with a sense of escape, a feeling he’s been pursuing since he started playing piano as a kid. Afriqua made an impact with Colored (2019), his debut LP on R&S Records, and self-released singles like Always (2022). As unpredictable as they are refined, the projects only reaffirmed his knack for experimentation and led to his latest adventure as the first signing of CORE Records, a new label from Tomorrowland and Live Nation. In addition to his recorded efforts, Afriqua has made an effort at connecting with curious listeners through writing and video as well. He penned and produced the editorial project “Principles of Black Music”—a five-part video and essay series—for the Ableton blog, their first artist-led and -written project. He’s also made an impact on the stage, DJing at hallowed club spaces such as Circoloco at DC-10 in Ibiza and Berghain in Berlin, as well as making his live debut at MUTEK in Montreal. Now, as he prepares to release MAXI SINGLE, it’s clear he’s making even further strides forward, surmounting more obstacles with each passing project. Gustavo known these days as Moreon, started his artist profile by the early 2000 ́s, having a radio show, then creating his own record label, working in a record shop (Subwax BCN), managing club bookings, co-producing events all this since 2004 between Venezuela and Barcelona (Spain) where he relocated in 2011. During all this time has been also devotedly collecting & spinning records for more than two decades. In recent years he grabbed international attention with his duo project along Emidio Falconi known as Moreon & Baffa. Between 2015/2022 they released works in labels like: Visionquest, Berg Audio, Social Experiment, Subwax BCN, Vade Mecum, No.19 and his own label BUDARE among others, In 2023 his first solo release came out “Intercomunal” under the BUDARE label, marking the 10th release of the series. He has been carrying his act and performance around the globe in the last years, expect a new wave of major releases and content for 2024-25. // Club Level // Afriqua soundcloud.com/afriqua // Green Room: Deep Dive Invites // Moreon (BUDARE | Barcelona) soundcloud.com/moreon Ramos soundcloud.com/ramos_dc // Flash Bar // SDOT soundcloud.com/sdotmusik Hunch soundcloud.com/0989 Psy-Fi Yé soundcloud.com/psy-fi_ye _________________________________ ⠶⠶⠶⠶⠶ Flash Safe Space Policy ⠶⠶⠶⠶⠶ Flash stands firmly against non-consensual behavior, discrimination, harassment or harm of any kind.
