What better way to start introducing Kobosil than as resident DJ at the infamous Berghain? A figurehead of a raw and raging techno with deep roots in his native Berlin, his status was built gradually, with a futuristic approach to the genre and seeking inspiration from EBM, acid, rave and industrial, mixing them in a fast and precise way, in a whirlwind of emotions.
As a producer, we find his records on the label associated with Berghain - Ostgut Ton - Marcel Dettmann Records and his R Label Group, a platform where he gives shelter to a series of musicians, designers and multimedia artists who associate themselves with the "R" aesthetic.
Kobosil moves like few others through the shadows of a sound that spreads all over the world, and it is at Pavilhão Carlos Lopes that we find the perfect place to unveil it.
When it comes to electronic music from the land of Gaul in the last decade, it is impossible not to mention the name of Shlømo. We owe a lot to Aphex Twin for the fact that his music has moved the French from the hip-hop scene to the ranks of soulful, dynamic, and effusive techno with which he has made himself known to the world. We speak not only about his productions but also the remixes for established artists within the genre - Ellen Allien, Oscar Mulero, SHDW & Obscure Shape, Marco Bailey among others - or the regular performances at Berghain / Panorama Bar, Concrete, Khidi or Awakenings.
For this Neopop Presents: Shlømo brings his unique approach to techno, with powerful beats, heavy basses and rave spirit, which is so appreciated by us.
In August takes place the biggest electronic music festival in Portugal. Neopop, in Viana do Castelo, receives every year thousands of fans from the most diverse nationalities, bringing together global stars and talented promises.
This edition, to be held between August 10 and 13, will be no different, with the presence of a strong international contingent and many local heroes in its line-up, featuring some of the most important artists of modern electronic music.
