We're thrilled to have rRoxymore and Violet teaming up for an extra special b2b at No Bounds 2019.
rRoxymore’s music is an intriguing, one-off blend of contrasting textures – organic and synthetic, icy and warm – a fresh step in dance music. The French musician and producer has a long history making music in various ways, with various people, before settling in Berlin and concentrating on the solo project that collects it all. Live, rRoxymore creates rhythms and sounds with energetic rawness merging with an energising sense of psychedelia. As well as being a Hope Works / No Bounds resident for 2019, rRoxymore is also a resident with Berlin-based queer femme / non-binary forward collective Room 4 Resistance, which aims to explore the political dimensions of the dance floor and to create bridges between different communities.
DJ, producer, boss of Naive records, co-founder of Rádio Quântica, and mina resident Violet has been shaking up Lisbon’s nightlife culture. Since moving back to Portugal in 2016, Violet’s talent for elegantly blending techno with breakbeats and acid basslines has been recognised. Her positive energy and openness began to attract the LGBTQ community, and she began working with mina, a collective that aims to bring ravers and DJs together with sexual and gender liberation causes. Mykki Blanco named Violet as one of the most influential DJs in the underground scene: “it became clear to me who was moving and shaking things up in this city…Violet represents to me the change I want to see in this world, which is powerful women running electronic music and beyond.” At Lisbon Pride, as a demonstration against the lack of representation for the trans community, Violet invited various trans artists to gatecrash her DJ set and occupy her platform.
Breaking ground sonically and politically, this set isn't going to be one to miss.
