JAN BLOMQVIST (LIVE) + SATORI (LIVE)
JAN BLOMQVIST and SATORI Live Performance
Join us on April 18th at ALCATRAZ MILANO, on the occasion of Milano Design Week, for an incredible night of music with JAN BLOMQVIST and SATORI in a live performance.
Backstory Jan’s early live concert performances in the 90’s were a fusion of punk, hardcore, britpop and rock and roll. But his music was growing with the times as he was inspired by the increasing and diverse use and experimentation of electronic instruments and noise in the then-modern radio and club music. Still a teenager then he broke up the band and moved to Berlin where he immersed himself in the electro movement, studying every artist, dj, and character he encountered. Jan folded in with inspiring crews like those at the Bar25 who not only exposed him to their forward thinking politic, but were inspired by Jan’s passion and unique worldview and signed him to their booking agency. He reformed his old band and began perfecting a machine-like super tight sound that would bring a rock and roll stage presence to the clubs and resulted in an amazing live show. Key gigs at the Fusion Festival, viral music videos, a very big jet plane cover and a debut EP on Stil vor Talent launched him directly into the center of the game to reinvent deep house music. The following cornerstone performances at Burning Man in 2016 and the legendary Zero Parties (from 2013-2018) in New York catapulted his sound into the North American scene and set a clean and mature example of the second wave of the electronic music movement, as you can hear on his spectacular debut album Remote Control from 2016 and his newest œuvre Disconnected.
What is Satori, you say? Music created by this artist, is exactly what his name represents — Enlightenment and Energy.
We are born in a chaotic age, all looking for our own space. A space that exists beyond ideas of what’s right and what’s wrong. A space where we can surrender, and find ourselves. Satori helps us find our way.
Satori is inspired to capture electronic world music, where he combines endless blends of seductive trance and mind-altering earthy tones. It is not defined by any-one genre. Satori is here to satisfy any meditative music-lover by provoking a spiritual journey through his infinite sound-garden. Listen as you take on new dimensions of his musical world, where movement, dreaming and creativity are endless. Let the sound live in your heart, harvesting every last memory of dance and rhythm. Satori’s sound is more than just a switch on a soundboard; he is the man behind the instrument, creating melodies from the piano, kora, kalimba, and guitar in combination with a deeper form of electronic music.
Whenever you’re ready, Satori will meet you there, to the place one can only dream of.
