The autumn program of the Fléda music club in Brno contains big names of the music world. The August visit of Jon Hopkins', who will appear at the Brno Marathon of Music festival is already at its imaginary beginning. The autumn season officially opens with a September dance party featuring GusGus from Iceland. This will be followed by concerts of Hooverphonic with a new singer, Jan Blomqvist & Band with their complete Disconnected project or the Berlin legend DJ Hell with his Zukunftmusic composition. Rockers De Staat will bring their novelty titled The Bubble Gum, Movits! their most hip-hop record so far – the double album V, Kadebostany in turn will bring their album Monumental. Last but not least, Vitalic with Rebeka Warrior will also be featured presenting their KCompromat project.
The August event, as part of the Brno Marathon of Music will be launched by a major global IDM representative, recognized producer and long-time collaborator of Brian Eno Jon Hopkins. It will be followed by a concert of GusGus from Iceland. For their current concert tour, they made the material from their new album into an audiovisual show full of techno and pop euphoria explosions. Belgian Hooverphonic will delight fans of trip hop and melodic electronics. Besides the songs from the recently released album Looking For Stars, they will play their well-known hits.
Jan Blomqvist & Band, a charismatic Berliner, will complement the October program with the award-winning Disconnected project, which he has already partially presented to Brno last year at Špilberk courtyard. The diversity of the Berlin sound is reaffirmed by DJ Hell with his Zukunftsmusic composition and a multi-genre set. The Dutch rockers De Staat will crown the October wild ride. They will bring a new show to their current album The Bubble Gum, where they comment on the world of social bubbles, social codes and Trump rhetoric.
November will bring two great culminations of the season. The first will be directed by the indie-pop duo Kadebostany. The live performance for the new album Monumental will bring a unique visual identity and first-league fusion of pop, edm and world music. The second is a dream come true of French Vitalica and fans of Kraftwerk or Einstürzende Neubauten. The European dance music icon, renowned producer and multi-instrumentalist threw away all inhibitions this time and created a raw dance album named Traum und Existenz, in which his dramatic handwriting blends perfectly with Rebeka Warrior's unquieting vocals.
Hard music lovers will appreciate Belgian Amenra, in the company of the Swiss hypnotic duo E-L-R and the Australian sludge quartet YLVA. The band Myslovitz is coming from neighbouring Poland, which is gradually evolving from mass pop to more experimental musical position after the conquest of Czech radio stations and MTV. Movits! will arrive from Sweden with their jazz rap show to the current double album.
A part of the club season are also annual concerts of J.A.R., Monkey Business, Mig 21, Skyline, Visací zámek and the Brno band Poletíme?. The series of autumn concerts will be launched by Insania with its 888th show, with a number of guests supporting the legend of the Czech crossover. The band Jelen & Míša Tučná will present their album Spím v obilí [Sleeping in a Crop Field], a tribute to Michal Tučný, a Nestor of Czech folk and country. One of the most interesting domestic singers, Lenny, came out of the folk environment as well, launching her second album, which in her own words is bolder and more cheerful. One of the most expected autumn concerts will be the launch of the album Les [Forest] of the band -123min.
