BOZAR NIGHT weaves mixed media into a challenging whole. Exhibitions meet clubbing in a landmark of Brussels architecture. Slo-moed beats, fired-up electronics, audio-visual dialogues with the paintings of Watteau, Neo Rauch's contemporary German dream-art and Francis Bacon’s ghosts. Led by the sounds of now with the likes of JETS (Machinedrum + Jimmy Edgar), Holy Other, D/R/U/G/S, Letherette, Lapalux (in replacement of James Ferraro who had to cancel his tour), Old Apparatus, Cupp Cave, Squeaky Lobster and DJs Sofa and Aguila. Victor Horta would approve!

21:00 DJ SOFA (BE - Lmalc) @Horta Hall
DJ Sofa
is not just a DJ. He is a true music lover, with a large interest and knowledge of everything electronic and beyond. Sofa has gradually become a resident for the BOZAR electronic events, and is also the man behind the exciting label La Madame avec le Chien.

21:00 OLD APPARATUS + visuels (UK - live - Sullen Tone / Deep Medi) @Studio
Old Apparatus
is a collective hailing from London. Take a seat in the dark, look and listen. Their sound takes as much from post-dubstep as from modern industrial and nightmarish ambient. Deconstructed beats, or a beatless hiss, sound trailers from obscure films, samples of traditional folklore, a foggy siren and a cut-throat bass. Inhale, exhale, an audio-visual Sabbath to start the night!

22:00 HOLY OTHER (UK - live - Tri Angle Records) @Horta Hall
Holy Other
is a phenomenon. Each of his appearances is a true immersive performance, drained in beauty and mystery. His reverb-fuelled sound integrates ghostly echoes of dubstep, hip hop, and R&B, craftily arranged into heavy emotive songs. Tri-Angle was the label that first launched his sound into the world, and this has deeply touched anyone who came in contact with it. He recently toured with Amon Tobin and has remixed artists such as How To Dress Well and Asobi Seksu. Bring on the night!

22:00 AGUILA (BE - Vicuna) @Fumoir
Aguila is mad about vinyl and knows how to set up an adventurous mix. His love for italo, disco and wave has sent him on a divine mission to light the fire on the most sensual dancefloors.

23:00 SQUEAKY LOBSTER (BE - live - Vlek) @Horta Hall
Squeaky Lobster
, also on Vlek records, plays bass in the free outfit South of No North and makes crunchy and refined ambient / bass / beat electronics with a highly cinematographic approach. His deconstructed beauty led him to collaborate with Romain Tardy from Anti VJ. Together, they make stunning audio-visual installations and performances that travel around the globe.

23:30 D/R/U/G/S + visuels (UK - live - Different Recordings) @Horta Hall
makes beats for everyone enjoying an open-minded dancefloor. Just like other DIY upcoming artists such as Gold Panda, Teengirl Fantasy or Blondes, the young producer takes as much from grime and techno as from rave to create his own personal style. His take on Lana Del Rey’s Blue Jeans has excited audiences from all over the world. Expect an uncompromising set from this young man with a bright future.

24:30 LAPALUX Supported by Art'n BLOOM! (UK - Live - Brainfeeder / Pictures Music) @Fumoir
is the new whizzkid on Flying Lotus' imprint Brainfeeder. Having made fans out of Diplo and SBTRKT, remixed everyone from Lianne La Havas via Crystal Fighters to Bonobo, Tawiah, AlunaGeorge and Speech Debelle, as well as supporting FlyLo and playing the main stage at Sonar and in Japan with Clark, his debut full length album "Nostalchic", freshly dropped, has been designed for making love.

01:00 LETHERETTE (UK - live - Ninja Tune) @Horta Hall
Exclusive first show in Belgium !
Letherette is one of the latest signings on the mythical Ninja Tune label. With 3 EPs, remixes for the likes of Bibio and Machinedrum, playing gigs and festivals on the best locations of the moment, they are ready to rule the world. Their filtered house, a beat-driven music with infectious bass-lines, is seducing dancefloors from all over, and Belgium is next.

02:00 JETS (Jimmy Edgar + Machinedrum) (USA - live - Leisure System) @Horta Hall
was born out of the friendship and the long collaborative effort between two exciting and extravagant electronic music producers, Jimmy Edgar and Machinedrum. After a residency in Berlin’s Berghain club, their new sound imprint saw its first release on the German label Leisure System. Weaving its way intricately into the multi-textured fabric of sounds is the undeniable presence of Edgar’s electro-funk soul whilst Machinedrum’s idiosyncratic syncopated rhythms and stuttered drum clacks jack and roughen the edges. Tailor-made for BOZAR’s dancefloor extravaganza.

02:00 CUPP CAVE (BE - Live - Ramp / Vlek / Thin Consolation) @Fumoir
For a long time Cupp Cave was Belgium’s best kept secret. But not anymore. Having digested most of the electronic spectrum of sound and all possible forms of approaches, his compositions are dense, rich, surprising, complex yet simple. His home is on Belgian quality purveyor Vlek. He recently played London’s Fabric and still endorses vegetarian Texan zombies on Mexican mushrooms.
