Favourite Gig: Django Django

New album, new tour for Django Django! The British band will be live in Razzmatazz today. After a first eponymous album released in 2012 followed by “Born Under Saturn” out in 2015, British members of Django Django are back with a new and third opus called “Marble skies”,

Django Django  laid the blueprint for a confident, adventurous and psychedelically-bruised strain of art-rock that melds intangible electronic flourishes to the visceral rub of live instrumentation.



The muses of La Musa: Princess Nokia

A woman of many aliases, Destiny Frasqueri first made headlines as “Wavy Spice” in 2013 before diving into Afrofuturist explorations as well as disco, blues and soul vibes under her birth name. Recently, as Princess Nokia, she’s become a local icon, spitting an airy flow over hip-hop beats. Despite all the shifts, one trait remains: a commitment to continually breaking expectations. Her newest release, an emo mixtape titled A Girl Cried Red, is the latest thrilling transformation. Tonight in concert at Razzmatazz.


Shopping es va formar a principis de 2013 abraçant el post punk dels 70 amb una voracitat que poques vegades es veu en aquests dies, evocant l’agressió de Gang of Four, l’udol voraç de The Slits i l’empenta dance de Delta 5 i ESG. El seu primer LP al seu propi segell MILK al Regne Unit, va vendre els seus 1.000 unitats en tan sols uns mesos. El Segon, Why Choice, va ser llançat aFat Cat Records a tot el món a l’octubre de 2015 i també es va esgotar en un mes. Els concerts de Shopping -com a teloners d’ESG i Gang Of Four i a festivals com End of the Road i ATP són increïblement divertits i innegablement emocionants. Pel seu esperat tercer àlbum The Official Body, Shopping s’han associat amb la llegenda de l’indie pop i l’innovador Edwyn Collins. Aquesta nit en concert a Razzmatazz.

Music by Bergman: Kamasi Washington

Cita obligada amb el saxofonista de Los Angeles Kamasi Washington, un dels jazzmen de capçalera per tota una generació, col·laborador clau de Kendrick Lamar al premiat ‘To Pimp a butterfly’ (2015) i que va debutar en solitari amb el mastodòntic ‘The Epic’ (2015). Ara torna a Barcelona per presentar ‘Heaven and earth’ (2018), el seu esperat nou disc, que publicarà al juny; una nova mostra de jazz brillant barrejat amb diferents expressions de la música negra; hip hop, funk, soul i sons africans. Tonight at Razzmatazz.

Favourite Gig: Editors

 Editors will play today at Razzmatazz  their new album, Violence. the British outfit’s sixth album overall.

The record follows 2015’s well-received self-produced effort, In Dream. As signaled by the lead track “Magazine”, Violence finds Editors taking their dark wave rock towards a poppier sound. Some of that is likely the result of working with a producer whom the band had never met — not even during the recording process. After writing the majority of the album in an old cow shed near Oxford, UK, they began collaborating remotely with Benjamin John Power, aka Blanck Mass, leading to some unexpected shifts in style.

Divus Julius presents…Sleaford Mods

The duo from Nottingham of singer and founder Jason Williamson and musician Andrew Fearn (who joined in 2012) excel at expressing the raw emotions of the most jaded working class, thanks to their nihilistic and raging catharsis that comes out of the UK and under the post-punk banner. Their lyrics speak of masculinity and weakness, of professional liars and the great rock and roll swindle. They present their latest album, ‘English Tapas’ (2017) tonight at Razzmatazz.
