After a wildly packed rooftop party at seul & SEUL and an unreal evening with John Talabot at Alter. One Year Anniversary, Alter. is back again at 44KW for an eclectic evening featuring one of the key figures in the Parisian scene, Bambounou. Join us for a night of endless dancing to dark alluring beats beckoning at you alongside tantalizing rhythms.
Spending the past few years honing his sound and technique, Bambounou has gained his position from his genre bending and jubilant electronic music productions and laying down solid freight train DJ sets around the globe. Bambounou is the product of vast internal landscape where he roves freely in search of inspiration. Just as his alloyed French-Malian-Polish background has grown him a strong backbone of musical independence, so too has his love for astrophysics and dystopian sci-fi been distilled into futuristic interpretations of UK techno, IDM and tribal sources.
His effortless straddling of experimental eclecticism and 4x4 beat mastery helped Bambounou to early on catch the eye of Modeselektor, whose 50Weapons released two albums and five EPs of his axiom breaking dance incantations. His ever evolving and forward thinking productions have more recently seen a release on the revered WHITIES imprint.
Bambounou’s originality and craftsmanship has earned him some first rate remixes with the likes of Laurent Garnier, Jessy Lanza and Sampha. Collaborations with Margaret Dygas and Simo Cell also demonstrated his ability to innovate both creatively and technically. Add to this his experience ratcheting up the dance floors of some of the world’s best locations like Berghain/Panorama Bar, Concrete, De School, Freerotation, MoMA PS1 and Nuits Sonores and it should come as no surprise that Bambounou’s upcoming releases are being served with a healthy dose of anticipation.
2019 sees Bambounou release a debut EP on the renowned WHITIES label and an already hectic gig-schedule including confirmed sets at Terraforma Festival, The Tate London, Horst Festival, DGTL Festival and plenty, plenty more.
Joining the decks alongside Bambounou in Room 44 is one of the backbone of techno in China – Miiia while Chia Social Club lays down some disco and funk tunes in Room KW. Let’s dance.
