A party that celebrates many forms of eclectic electronic music in a unique space: Barcelona based Curva Imposible tries to create events that explore enigmatic exceptions within subcultural music spheres, all within a singular space, in order to move away from normative dance music. They display sounds that are difficult to find in the global club music circuit to create a circular experience, in which live music, dj art and a concrete visual imagery converge.
At the end of the month the second Curva Imposible edition will take place at the emblematic Sala Upload in Barcelona's Poble Espanyol, where two areas showcase some of the most renowned musicians, DJs and selectors of the European underground scene. The main hall will feature a live performances of the project Don The Tiger, led by Barcelona musician Adrián de Alfonso, as well as the London based duo Tomaga, who will introduce their unique, deeply touching meltdown of jazz, psychedelia and industrial. Either side of their shows a bunch of DJs will play surreal dance floor grooves, like the Viennese DJ and producer Heap, the man behind the famed Neubau label that Carhartt WIP presented in a radio show in October 2018. The biggest star of the night comes in the form of Lebanese-born, Berlin based producer and DJ Rabih Beaini, whose multidimensional DJ skills bring exploratory techno, electronica and improvisational jazz together.
Besides the main floor, there will be a smaller, so-called 'Mystic Room' displaying music that has no aim of making its listeners dance. Instead, it features genres such as ambient, kosmische, folk, jazz, slow motion rock or other kinds of dance-not-dance music all carefully selected by the Dutchman Ron V/D, Zauberstab zine editor Alicia Carrera and local producers Bejota Nova, who will play an exclusive tape machine performance. Come by, bring an open mind, get enlightened.
