J’ee-haw! vs. Holodeck

06/02/2005    Art, Curating, Design 3D & 2D, DJ, Jee-haw

Extensive Holodeck & J’ee-haw! event at Holodeck in Groningen.

J’ee-haw! presented an expo in gallery Brak with Vrienden van J’ee-haw! Galerie Prints, J’ee-haw! Remixed (with listening cabines), J’ee-haw! Compact Disc (with J’ee-haw! Audioburst and Cowboy Bodybuilder Billboard) and ZZZZ-Monument.

J’ee-haw! and Holodeck programmed performances by several J’ee-haw! remixers for the 3 year anniversary of Holodeck’s Clubplus+, which is Holodeck’s smashing club night. J’ee-haw! fitted Clubplus+ with a striped decor, similar to the J’ee-haw! trademark.

There were performances by Radboud Mens (live), Jos Smolders (live), HuMobisten feat. Der Versucher (live & dj), Toxic Chicken (live), Harco (dj), The Common People (dj), visuals by Zafari and special J’ee-haw! bites & drinks by Café De Plak.

Jos Smolders (live) played ‘From 0-120 bpm: Everything Must Go’, a very abstract and experimental set:

Radboud Mens (live) played an extremely danceable minimal dub techno set. Jos Smolders and Radboud Mens also improvised a live set together, a strong minimal dub techno set on acid.

Harco played a Rather Interesting vs. Nonplace dj-set:

‘Humor’ and ‘mind your own business’, that’s what it’s all about for the HuMobisten (Gyz la Rivière and Rufus.K). The HuMobisten take humor very seriously and use it to subtlely address social problems, important mondial events or remarkable social tendencies. But sometimes they just stop by a club and mix a bunch of records. Der Versucher is MP3J and plays along for this evening. The HuMobisten also made ‘HuMobiza 2005’, a special brand new remix of the original HuMobiza track on J’ee-haw! Remixed, including fab video and absurd but solid stage act.

Toxic Chicken with his sister Serafina Ouistiti (live) came with rough electro, disturbing breakbeats and absurdistic strip act. Dare to be chicken, very pok!

You could listen to a live Clubplus+ stream through www.nauticradio.net and the whole event is very well documented by VPRO 3voor12.
