From bollywood music to reggaeton, get ready for the sound of global club music in your local club. Sixth edition from the Šelest club night series will bring together the Miami-based producer and Tra Tra Trax affiliatte Nick Léon (his long-awaited Czech debut), Vienna based and Bangladesh-rooted artist মm, Slovak experimentator DJ GÄP and Radio Punctum resident Seafur. On 28th of October, the dance floor of Prague club Bike Jesus will tremble with rhythms of afrohouse, techno, breakbeat, jungle or baile funk. Pilsen-based group 𝗧𝗿𝗶𝗽𝗽𝗹 𝗞𝗿𝗶𝗽𝗽𝗹 𝗩𝗝𝘀 will take care of the visual elements.
𝗡𝗶𝗰𝗸 𝗟𝗲ó𝗻 creates a dystopian tapestry of club music, drawing inspiration from Florida’s diverse ecosystem, where he started as a self-taught producer for local rap scene. His recent EP Xtasis (released on label TraTraTrax), along with collaborations with artists such as Rosalía’s, Iceboy Violet or Denzel Curry, show how versatile (and insanely fun!) his work can be. Constant evolution is present also in his DJ sets, which can go from dub or UK bass via breakbeat to reggaeton or cumbia.
ম𝗺 is a boundary-breaking DJ and curator, seamlessly blending global South rhythms and styles. Their repertoire ranges from popular bollywood music, dancehall, baile funk and afrobeats to jungle, hard percussions or techno. They champion inclusive and decolonial dance spaces, while also pursuing academic research in gender, sexuality, art, and politics.
𝗗𝗝 𝗚Ä𝗣, based in Bratislava, crafts a unique sonic landscape blending club deconstructions, industrial, dembow rhythms, and 00’s R’n’B vibes. His releases on labels like Ashida Park and JEROME have garnered acclaim from the SoundCloud scene as well as NTS Radio, and more. His newest recording – Burning Brakes has been featured in Bandcamp’s best club music of 2022. DJ GÄP’s sets blur lines between pop and experimental club music.
𝘀𝗲𝗮𝗳𝘂𝗿’s sets seamlessly blend genres such as hyperpop, afrobeats, dembow & r’n’b, kuduro or footwork, but sometimes she also dives into experimental pop. Beyond music, she’s interested in various forms of storytelling through minimalist songs and abstract drawings, all while exploring the challenges of modern millennial life. Additionally, Seafur’s therapeutic outlet lies in her textile and screen printing work under the brand Potvora.
The event is supported by the Ministry of Culture Czech Republic and by the Prague City Hall.
