ART IS HARD 2012(03.02)WAREHOUSE 7 PORT OF THESSALONIKI

3 Φεβρουαρίου 2012 είναι η ημερομηνία που θα πραγματοποιηθεί τo ART IS HARD του 2012 στην αποθήκη 7 στο Λιμάνι Θεσσαλονίκης.

Η μέρα ART IS HARD θα φιλοξενεί 60 καλλιτέχνες από κάθε χώρο τέχνης, ή καλύτερα από τον δικό τους χώρο στον οποίο συναντήθηκαν με την τέχνη. Θα μας επιτρέψουν λίγο να μπούμε στα μονοπάτια της δική τους περιπέτειας, θα μας μιλήσουν σιωπηλά για τις σκέψεις τους και τις δικές τους αξίες, θα μας δείξουν έναν κόσμο διαφορετικό, ίσως λίγο καλύτερο.

Κι εμείς θα κάνουμε ησυχία για να ακούσουμε αυτά που θα μας διηγηθούν, βλέπoντας… μέχρι τις 12 τα μεσάνυχτα γιατί μετά θα ακολουθήσει ένα πάρτυ που δεν θα ξεχάσετε ποτέ.

Όλα αυτά στην Αποθήκη 7 του ΟΛΘ, ένα χώρο που θα λατρέψετε για την αυθεντικότητα και την αρχιτεκτονική του αίγλη. Μια παλιά αποθήκη υποδοχής εμπορευμάτων, για εμάς ένας “σύγχρονος” ναός τέχνης.

3 Φεβρουαρίου 2012, από τις 11 το πρωί οι πόρτες της αποθήκης 7 θα είναι ανοιχτές για περιπλάνηση, συζητήσεις και απίστευτο κέφι!

MUSIC :

NICHOLAS (IT) LIVE

Italian native Nicholas Iammatteo, at his young age of 25, has an impressive and extensive sense for deeper dance music. What’s even more impressive is the consistency of his releases and his range. He has releases on many labels including Undertones, Kolour Limited, Ourvision, House is the Cure, Small World Disco Edits, Dikso, & Kojak. Has done remixes for Andy Ash and also Mario Basonov on the super fun label Needwant. His greater accomplishment, which has gained the respect of many enthusiasts, is his vinyl only label “No More Hits”. His emphasis is on content not technology.
Diva samples, commanding soul and warm inviting synthesizers breath heavily in his tracks. His work gives the basic tools he uses room to move and play. His track construction gives life to the forgotten energy that classic underground dance music utilized. Looking into Nicholas’ inspiration isn’t as easy as explaining the sequence of events of a producer or DJ who has been a pioneer to the core that is Chicago, Detroit, and N.Y. Underground sounds. The departure into music for Nicholas occurred at the Red Zone Club in Perugia, Italy. This is where Nicholas took his lessons. He credits that club as the catalyst for him becoming aware.

His top influence of all time is the Chicago label that Chez and Trent released scores of records on, Prescription, parent label to many influential labels and distributed by the power house Cajual. More influences in the house vein include Romanthony, Moodymann (listen to Nicholas’ “Many Shade of the Blues” released on Undertones and see for yourself), Pal Joey & Kerri Chandler. Soul/funk/disco influences include the likes of Patrick Adams and Leroy Burgess, along with influences from the sounds of Motown Records.

9WEST LIVE :: Dessous, Nite Groove, Liebe*detail

9west production is based on vintage instruments like original drumsets and live played perc, slap basses, organs, strings, blend with electronic cords, leads, sounds and effects and atmospheric pads.
Their music can be described as deep-house and tech-house enriched with the distinctive mood of the analogue warmth.

Their music is free of crippling nostalgia and rather wins you over with consistency, tension, and dynamics and time and time again with a sensibility, one would usually expect from house music. In this vein, 9west pursues an unexacting fusion of quantum jumps and tradition – including effortless melodies or hook lines.

The songs of 9west entered on top charts of deep house music

Overall his Djing career, 9west has made appearances all over Greece, but also abroad such as in
Berlin,
Paris,
Frankfurt,
Budapest,
Rome,
Ohrid ,
Mexico city ,
Guadalajara plus many more.

In very short period their sound traveled to record labels around the world such Berlin,New York and Argentina

BORONAS aka SQUARE ROOM HEROES :: Claap (GR)

George Boronas begun his dj career during the mid 90’s in Thessaloniki, Greece. Early influences came from his parents record collection. Bands and artists like the Doors, Pet Shop Boys, Jean Michel Jarre and many many others. According to his parents, since the age of 7 George would spend hours sitting in front of a monitor-speaker and change records so that he could get a taste of as many music styles of those days possible! Some piano and guitar lessons where enough to make him realize his love for music and made him want to be a part of all that. A few years later George started to collect vinyl which ignited his passion to use these records to create a mood in a club. Soon after, at the age of 16, he got the chance to start his dj career as he started playing his first parties. At the time George was mixing break beat, jungle and intelligent drum n’ bass Style, influenced from London’s music culture and artists like Goldie, LTJ Bukem , Suburban Base and the Moving Shadow crew. He also experimented in scratching and learning hip-hop techniques from respected artists like DJ Kid Stretch (national winner of the 1998 DMC competion in Greece), to combine various technques in his dj sets.

Soon he changed his musical taste and moved into deep house, house, tech-house and techno with influences that came from USA’s 90’s house and techno scene, as well as house from the UK. More especially Detroit, Chicago and New York. Artists like Jeff Mills, DJ Sneak, Todd Terry, Terry Francis amongst many others. Then followed the French house explosion which kept clubbers buzzing and, of course, George too! His top mixing skills and unique collection of records gained him a very good reputation in the Greek underground music circuit, and also brought him regular dj appearances in parties and events in various venues within Greece as well as other countries. A short while later George had residencies in various clubs in his hometown of Thessaloniki and was also organising nights with Pale Penguin. Together they planned parties hosting guest DJs, live musicians and local heroes who supported the events with live instruments like sax, guitars, keyboards and percussion. These events gained a cult status in their country and where coverred by very popular publications, as well as radio and TV shows.

More recently, he has compiled and mixed 2 quality tech-house CDs for Freeze Magazine (Greece) and had his first studio sessions for producing dance music. Until now he has played alongside artists like Wareika, Loco Dice, Martin Buttrich, Aril Brikha and has offered some memorable nights in Thessaloniki’s club scene. Since the last few years he also holds a long running residency in his hometown under the “Saturday Night Fever “ events. While visiting Hamburg and Berlin often to dj and develop his sound working with friends who he loves more than dearly. George remains focused in djing and producing more music to make more audiences sweat on the dancefloor!

DIM.AD VS JAYMOD (GR)

Dim.Ad & Jaymod met up in the early 90’s at a university warehouse party somewhere in northern Greece ,where
they realised that they had common inspirations, the same passion, desire, and vision for underground music and
vinyl records.

Like true vinyl junkies they were already buying almost the same stuff and they started spinning together. After some
years of losing touch in the mid 00’s they got back together and it was funny that they would yet again find the
same new and also old and rare records in their bags as in the past. It was obvious that something really serious was
going on.

They soon started a residency at the Hard Rock cafe and they have played together from illegal parties and beach
clubs to festivals. A recent one was at Reworks in Thessaloniki.
Dim.Ad has spinned alongside key figures such asAril Brikha ,Tom Clark, Funk D Void, Frank Nova, Monoroom,Charles Webster, Agent, Rui Da Silva,Kabale und Liebe, Martinez,Woodyjust to name a few.
Some clubs he has performed in are Art House,
Block 33,Decadence, minus,Loop,Buzz ,

Jaymod runs the already successful “The Freaks Radio show” with exclusive presentation from guests like 3 Channels,
Sasse, Jamie Anderson, Dirt Crew, Gorge, Alex Flitch , Afrilounge, Guy Gerber, Chaim, Dusty Kid, Djuma Soundsystem,
Sebastian Roya, Sian, Estroe, Paul Brtschitsch , Franklin De Costa , Dani Casarano
Ptoile , Florian Meindl , Sascha B Wagner, Snax , Pezzner, Geddes, Tom Clark, Todd Bodine, Ekkohaus ..

and kicks off 2012 at Paris playing at “Le Batofar”
Cream,Soho,Sugar, Drazel,Loop,Plasma(BG) Spartacus(BG)

Their music style includes a wide range of underground deep tech house and innovating minimalistic groovy tech
house and techno.

During their gigs, they work together like 2 brains in one in a unique combination;
Using their full creativity and experience to score a powerful interaction with an up-for-it crowd.

They are a unique duet that keep the flow just like as they want into the dance floor and always have aim at taking
the crowd into a journey during the night and give an experience full of movement, joy and emotions …

PI CI (GR)

Djing and organizing parties since 1992, talented producer/dj Christos Demertzis burst into the Greek electronic scene in 2002 with his electro-pop “Decades” project and the highly acclaimed “The First” album for the eclectic Poeta Negra label. With further releases for Relax Records and Klik Records under the PiCi alias, he quickly established himself as one of the most interesting and diverse artists around, with production work spanning several musical styles ranging from deep, soulful house and classic Detroit techno to more experimental and ambient electronics.
With more international appearances on established labels such as Conversation, Kompute, Dogtown and Germany’s fine Elektrolux family plus some inspirational remix work for well-known electronic artists including Popnoname, PiCi promises much more exciting and genre-crossing music in the near future.

MARICHA (GR)

Η Maricha ξεκίνησε σαν dj πριν απο 8 περίπου χρόνια. Mε ιδιαίτερη αγάπη για τα βινύλια, κινείται μουσικά κυρίως σε disco, space, soul και house ήχους, προσπαθώντας πάντα να διευρύνει τα μουσικά ερεθίσματα. Το 2007 βρέθηκε στο Τορόντο, στο RedBull Music Academy και έκτοτε ξεκίνησε τα πάρτυ με το όνομα Higher Love.

ΕΛΕΝΑ ΑΓΓΕΛΙΔΟΥ (GR)

Αν ζούσε στο Μεξικό θα ήταν η Φρίντα Κάλο. Αν ζούσε στην Ινδία θα ήταν η Ίντιρα Γκάντι (λόγω physique και στάσης ζωής). Δυστυχώς για όλους τους άλλους, ευτυχώς για εμάς ζει στη Θεσσαλονίκη και έτσι ένα ανήσυχο, δημιουργικό και καλλιτεχνικό πνεύμα κινείται ανάμεσά μας και δε σταματά στιγμή να μας εμπνέει!
Αξιόπιστες πηγές από το παρελθόν της αναφέρουν ότι ποτέ δε καθόταν στα αυγά της και πάντα καταπιανόταν με ετερόκλητα αντικείμενα- χαρακτηριστικό στοιχείο του χαρακτήρα της (δίδυμος γαρ).
Τη θυμούνται, λοιπόν, από πιτσιρίκι να χορεύει μπαλέτο αλλά και να παίζει ποδόσφαιρο. Να σπουδάζει διοίκηση επιχειρήσεων και management και παράλληλα να ζωγραφίζει μοναδικά και να φωτογραφίζει στιγμές, τοπία, πρόσωπα. Να ξημεροβραδιάζεται σε όλα τα στέκια της πόλης, αλλά και να μη χάνει έκθεση, παράσταση και κάθε είδους καλλιτεχνικό δρώμενο. Να έχει γυρίσει όλο μα όλο τον κόσμο, αλλά να υποστηρίζει σθεναρά ότι η Θεσσαλονίκη είναι η πιο όμορφη πόλη του πλανήτη.
Η αστείρευτα θετική της ενέργεια είναι κάτι που τη χαρακτηρίζει σε κάθε στιγμή της ζωής της. Αυτός είναι και ένας από τους βασικούς λόγους που το φανατικό της κοινό συντονίζεται καθημερινά από τις οκτώ έως τις έντεκα το πρωί στη συχνότητα του Republic 100.3! Άλλωστε, η ατάκα «Η ζωή είναι ωραία» αποτελεί μότο της εντός και εκτός στούντιο!
Έλενα Αγγελίδου σημαίνει «μία βαλίτσα στο χέρι». Κοινώς: Ή θα ταξιδεύει και θα μας αιφνιδιάζει (μα καλά πώς πρόλαβε να «πεταχτεί» για τρεις ημέρες στην Αφρική;) ή θα μας ταξιδεύει -ούσα πίσω από τα decks- με τις μουσικές που κουβαλά στις άπειρες βαλίτσες της!
Bossa nova, latin groove, retro κοσμοπολίτικες μελωδίες αποτελούν το καλύτερο εισιτήριο για έναν μουσικό διακτινισμό! Η κυβερνήτης του σκάφους, Έλενα Αγγελίδου σας εύχεται ένα καλό και χωρίς κενά αέρος ταξίδι!

Το πλαίσιο της φιλοσοφίας που ακολουθεί το ART IS HARD είναι ως γνωστόν η ελευθερη διακίνηση κάθε μορφής τέχνης. Έτσι δεν θα μπορούσαμε να αγνοήσουμε την οικονομική δυσκολία πολλών συνανθρώπων μας να παρεβρεθούν όσο και αν θα το ήθελαν σε δράσης όπως το ART IS HARD.
Γι΄αυτό τον λόγο οι τιμές των εισιτηρίων διαμορφώθηκαν ως εξής:

Γενική είσοδος: 5 ευρώ

Φοιτητές και άνεργοι: 3 ευρώ

Φοιτητές Σχολής Καλών Τεχνών:ΔΩΡΕΑΝ

Συμμετοχή καλλιτεχνών ΔΩΡΕΑΝ

Στην είσοδο απαραίτητη η επίδειξη πάσου και κάρτα ανεργίας.
