On the 16th of December club Drugstore will host Aisha Devi live and she will be supported by Kristallblume, WC7, Saud and Stevie Whisper.
Aisha Devi LIVE- For the first time the audience from Belgrade and the region will have the opportunity to experience Aisha Devi’s live performance in Drugstore on 16th of December! If anyone could infuse synths, drum machines and software with ritual chants and riveting vocals – creating ceremonial digital liturgies – it’s Aisha Devi.
Swiss-born Aïsha Devi emerged in 2013 with the EP Aura 4 Everyone on her own sanctuary-label Danse Noire followed by the 12″ Hakken Dub/Throat Dub in Summer 2014. Danse Noire is dedicated to exploring abstracted techno/club structures, and Devi’s own music treasures of her Nepalese-Tibetan heritage, using her machines to transmute deep meditation. Whether they are guttural or soprano, Devi’s warped pop mantras instruct us to uncover the unseen through a tense, visceral musical landscape that is often gnarled and industrial as it is danceable.
Alongside Aisha, supporting local DJs will make sure they shake up your senses as well: Kristallblume are bound to enchant you with a special intro sedation through muffled words and crinkled electronic; WC7, known for his themed mix tapes of Yugoslavian obscurities, invites you for a roller-coaster of a ride as a result of his frenetic imagination, Stevie Whisper the man behind infamous Techno Yes Techno boat parties and long serving member of Mystic Stylez collective, is gonna be topless and punk as fuck and Saud awaits to intensely overwhelm you and move you with hectic rhythms, ambiguity and polymorphous layers that will bring out your restrained zeal.
