Dance the night away listening to quality electronic music acts, while visiting top notch exhibitions: this is BOZAR NIGHT !
This edition is one you can’t afford to miss. Fernand Léger’s work is the perfect backdrop to electronic music. His representation of a fragmented and syncopated fast-moving society effortlessly blends in with the repetitive electro beats. Alongside Kehinde Wiley’s monumental stained glass pieces you also get to take in a unique collection of classic Spanish still lives and a multidisciplinary exhibition on Hugo Claus, one of Belgium’s most famous authors.
The minimal house and techno of Detroit-born Magda, the subtle and elegant electronic music of veteran Frenchwoman Chloé, the raw, danceable beats of Kyoka, Haring’s playful experiments, the dark abstract textures of Monolithe Noir and the narrative sounds of Liyo will lift your spirits into this unique BOZAR Night

Magda's realm as an artist spans far beyond the typical role played by DJs and producers. With an open mind, Magda will try her hand at whatever feels right - from tech collaborations to fashion and art, creating a truly unique, multifaceted expression of herself. Born in Poland and raised in Detroit, where she partied as a teenager, it wasn't long until Magda was fully immersed in the city's underground scene. In 1998, she joined Minus and began touring the world as Richie Hawtin's opening DJ. In her selections, she combines her love for Italian horror composition, Detroit techno futurism, modular acid and straight-forward dancefloor functionality. She has also remixed the likes of Plastikman and Depeche Mode. Magda continues to explore new creative avenues, each of them executed with the stamp of quality she has come to represent.
Chloé is the perfect example of a polyvalent artist. She is a composer, working mainly with electronic music tools. She has released music on labels such as BPitch Control, Live at Robert Johnson, Kill the DJ, My Favorite Robot, and Throne of Blood. She is constantly seeking for new ventures, and collaborates with cinema, the contemporary art world and with institutions such as IRCAM. She also has her own label, Lumière Noire, on which she releases her own work. Her versatilty is perfectly reflected in her dj sets. She assembles and blends together unlikely tracks, creating subtle contrasts that come together into singular mixes with a rare elegance.
Kyoka is a Japanese composer and musician living between Berlin and Tokyo. In her childhood she learned to play piano, flute and shamisen, later on she started exploring the possibilities of field recordings and tape manipulations. She then began to examine the limits of synthesizer and computer generated sounds. She has released music on Raster-Media (ex Raster-Noton) highlighting her adventurous artistic approach. She plays inventive electronic music. Her lightly chaotic, sometimes frisky, but at the same time rich and wide atmospheric sound mixed with rough and experimental yet danceable beats creates an extraordinary listening experience.
Haring is a young Belgian musician and producer of electronic music based in Brussels. His music is a combination of house, electronica and downtempo. His sounds are inspired by his travels and encounters, which he translates into music during long evenings and nights searching for the perfect sounds. Influenced by artists such as Gold Panda, Rone, Fatima Yamaha and Vessels , Haring has recently released his debut album ‘In Spaces’on his own label City Tracks.
Monolithe Noir is the solo project of Antoine Pasqualini. After having played mostly in pop bands, he wanted to make a drastic change and to make music for himself. He started exploring new tools like modular synthesizers and computers. He quickly found his own sound, combining dark abstract textures with surprising melodic and melancholic hooks. His rythmic approach is rich and varied, allowing the listener to get lost in his propositions. Among his influences, you’ll find Laurie Spiegel, Daphne Oram, James Holden, Luke Abott, Bebe and Louis Barron, with hints of pop and post-rock.
HE4RTBROKEN is a Belgian collective promoting forward-thinking and genre-blending club music. It aims at offering performances challenging expectations from the club, and focuses on emotion and reinvention rather than on a certain musical genre. Co-founder Liyo has been selected as one of the «8 female djs and producers who made 2017» by i-D magazine. Her style could be qualified as «storytelling», and is kindred to the philosophy of her nights : emotions come first, as she's looking for interesting collages, abrupt downfalls and emotional climaxes in her mixes regardless of genres and regular dance music conventions.
