Snuggle + Elvin Brandhi + HVAD

An evening permeated by sensuous sound collages and sonic experiments.

Elvin Brandhi
Elvin Brandhi is an improvising lyricist, producer and sound artist from Bridgend, Wales, who builds aberrant beats from field recordings, tape, vinyl, instrument and voice. Using sound and voice as an expansive language transgressing intrinsic systemics and inherited syntactical etiquettes, her live shows are unyielding bursts of erupting animation where her caustic stream of consciousness cavorts with restless, glitched out heaviness. Her creative momentum comprises a range of collaborations and an endless nomadism.

Her first E.P ‘Shelf life’ was released on ‘C.A.N.V.A.S’ in 2018. She one half of father / daughter noise-improv berserkers Yeah You who released on Alter, Slip, Opal, Psychik Dancehall and Good Food. She also performs in collaborations such as the Avril Spleen project with Joseph Jadame (maltash), Bahk with Daniel Blumberg (MUTE), as well as contributions to Drew Mcdowall’s agalma, just to name a few.

HVAD is a Copenhagen-based producer, who’s released a variety of different releases both as Dj Hvad as well as Kid Kishore. Since the mid-’00s, he has been working under a number of guises, creating and performing electronic music, and developing a signature sound unlike any other in Denmark. Musically, he incorporates elements of breakcore, techno and lately also ambient into many of his unconventional productions. Apart from being the owner of the notorious Danish label Syg Nok records, he’s also been involved in variety of other projects, such as owning the Kommunal Dubplate Service.

HVAD’s music is innovative, wild and direct, with an abstract and violent energy that makes the ground tremble. And underpinning it all – an unsettling but oddly beautiful paranoia. He employs sound sources such as his own scratched acetates, temple bells, taxi doors, dogs barking, church choirs, street slang and his voice to express a contemporary cultural awareness that is beyond multicultural and blurs the line between art and everyday life.

Snuggle is a newly-formed duo uniting two dearly beloved musicians out of Copenhagen’s alternative music scene. Forming a symbiosis of different musical eras, Snuggle weave together etheral guitar melodies and breathy vocals into a fuzzy sonic blanket which carefully and empathetically envelops the listener. Their simple live-setups create lo-fi collages evoking the wall-of-sound of 90s grunge and shoegaze as well as charmingly eclectic 00s pop productions.
