For the third year in a row, the last Brunch of the year will be on October 31st, Halloween Day. The Pavilhão Rio at the Centro de Congressos de Lisboa will host the indoor event, which starts at 10 pm and ends at 8 am the next morning. The organization has already announced two names: Russia’s most famous dentist Nina Kraviz and London-based Portuguese Francisco Ferreira aka The Advent.
The Advent thus returns to Portugal after the last Neopop Festival. Francisco will seek to recreate the most melodic techno of the 1990s in a live format, also featuring the “Camargue” track, reissued and remixed last month and remixed by artists such as Adam Beyer, Enrico Sangiuliano or Maceo Plex. He knows about the art of translating feelings to frequencies, while at the same time recording various high-profile artists from the world of Rock, Pop, Dance, or even Reggae. The Advent is a solo project, bombarding crowds around the world with its trademark raw and energetic sound. A sound that grants him yearly slots at festivals such as Nature One, Awakenings and Bonusz, as well as regular club shows at Berghain and Tresor in Berlin, and Madrid’s Fabrik.
About Nina Kraviz (in the picture) there is little information that is not known. Although young, the Siberia-born DJ already has a long studio repertoire of almost 10 years, which began with EP Moses in 2010 and exploded with the single “Guetto Kraviz” in 2012. This year, with her label Trip (Трип in Russian) she released the EP Stranno Neobjatno, as well as the “Feel My Butterfly” theme on Snatch Records. With Stranno Neobjatno, which means sublime in Russian, Kraviz is back in her wheelhouse, revisiting the stripped-back style that has been a staple of her work since early tracks like “Ghetto Kraviz“: hypnotic and slow-burning, it plays pumping synthesizer chords off a restrained drum-machine groove and fills in the empty spaces with Kraviz’ distant whispers and an occasional flash of dissonance reminiscent of a freight train’s mournful whistle. The smoothness of the groove belies its breakneck tempo. Previously she had released works by artists such as Bjarki, Aleksi Perälä or Aphex Twin.
Tickets are available from tomorrow 3rd October on the Made Of You Tickets website for 15 euros.
