Progress Bar on 1 April

Thursday 2 March 15:31

The only political party you can dance to. Progress Bar is a regular night for cutting-edge thinking and dancing, showcasing urgent sounds and voices while offering insight into the artistic practice of the most exciting contemporary artists, with interviews and lectures as well as a club programme. The next edition of Progress Bar takes place on Saturday 1 April at Paradiso Noord, Tolhuistuin, and features An Ni, Cakes Da Killa, DJ Firmeza, Juha, Kablam and Wail Qasim. AN NI (DJ) is an Estonian DJ, currently based in Netherlands. She describes her sonic palette as genre fluid, embracing raw and hard hitting percussions. Her sets blend a mix of industrial grime and floating melodies with glimpses of noise and sound design. An Ni is affiliated to the SISTER platform. CAKES DA KILLA (live) is one of hip-hop’s most exciting voices and a ferocious rapper. His unique sound is a mix of various musical influences, cinema and underground experiences. Cakes is praised for both his lyrical content and flow, which has earned him comparisons to Lil Kim and Foxy Brown.

DJ FIRMEZA (DJ) hails proudly from the Quinta do Mocho neighbourhood, where originators Nervoso and Marfox also reside. Firmeza is a revered and unmatchable DJ; his unique trance-inducing style has made him an acclaimed regular on Lisbon label Príncipe's monthly club residency.
JUHA (DJ), founder of Progress Bar, plays new internet dance music. As of 2016, Juha presents Viral Radio on ResonanceEXTRA, a monthly two-hour programme following new developments deep down the rabbit hole of internet music culture. KABLAM (DJ) started her DJ career as one of the residents of Berlin’s Janus party alongside co-residents Lotic and M.E.S.H. Blom’s style, in keeping with her Janus peers, experiments with the radical possibilities of club environments, finding imaginative points of entry and combinations between genres. WAIL QASIM (talk) is a writer, activist and campaigner. Their writing has covered philosophy and politics, specifically dealing with racism, issues of (gender)queer and black social movements, and their (social) media strategies. Qasim currently works as a freelance writer for The Guardian, The Independent, UK VICE Media and Novara. More artists and speakers to be announced soon.
