As noites GREEN RAY já nos habituaram a noites ambiciosas e fora do comum nas quais o Lux e a Heineken juntam, no mesmo espaço e na mesma data, um cartaz de mérito.
E o próximo dia 20 de Janeiro não é excepção. Dan Snaith dos Caribou foi o escolhido para ser o curador desta noite (pela sua relevância na música contemporânea mas também pela sua experiência como curador do famoso ATP – All Tomorrow’s Parties). As suas escolhas para esta noite são revelações da melhor música que existe no nosso tempo.
Caribou apresenta as suas escolhas :
“Sometimes everything just works out perfectly. Right after I was asked to curate a night at Lux, I heard that legendary Afro-psychedelic legends the Pyramids were playing shows together again after, as far as I was aware, a hiatus of over 30 years. Having always been one of my favourite bands based on their 3 brilliant independently released albums in the 1970s I never dreamt that I would get to see them live – let alone be able to ask them to join a night like this.
Next, always on speed dial for an event like this, I called Kieran “Four Tet” Hebden. Little did I know that he hasn’t played live in Portugal for almost a decade!
Finally, Floating Points, has been making sizable waves around him of late and deservedly so – carving out a musical space all of his own in the overcrowded world of contemporary music. Becoming friends with him over the last year has been inspiring and edifying. Hes not only a brilliant producer, composer, arranger (and neuroscientist) but also one of my favourite DJs.
Sometimes things work out so perfectly it’s hard to believe. But not very often. See you on Jan 20th.” Dan Snaith
