Week-End Fest XII: Mia Koden & Philo
Week-End Fest never sleeps. Thus, the year 2023 once again stands for change. With an opening concert, the festival starts this year already on Thursday, followed by two intense concert evenings & club nights on Friday and Saturday. Here we put program points for a club set-up again more in the foreground. In 2023, we will play all-areas the Stadtgarten and draw from the full to serve you from the concert hall, to "Vivian's Bedroom" - the space designed by the artist Vivian Suter, which will become the central place of the festival, to the Jaki Club a colorful program. Because that's what the Week-End Fest has stood for since day one: the form follows the program - and not the other way around. The Week-End Fest is and will remain an intimate boutique festival where overlooked gems of music history meet promising newcomers. A unique mix of talented artists from all over the world - from Brazil to Uganda - united with our favorite Cologne residents.
Hopefully the crowns are firmly in place, because the sub-bass breakbeat tracks that South Sudanese-British DJ Mia Koden knows how to inject into her sets will knock the gold out of you. She plows through British music history in current London style, mixing everything from garage to dubstep into a personal dance sound.
Philomène Robinne aka Philo proves you don't need decades of experience to understand and push boundaries of a genre. Her originally vinyl-exclusive selection has evolved over time into a digital hybrid to achieve the best possible sound. A regular on UK lineups, Philo played a slot at Londons legendary Rupture and moved between festivals , such as Fusion or croatian Membrain festival as well as Warning or HÖR in Berlin.
Characteristics of her eclectic selection involve rough UK bass, which is somewhere between breakbeat, 4 to the floor and dubby bassbin jungle but she also doesn’t shy away to do excursions into the realms of progressive house and more techno-inspired gems with a splash of nostalgic 90s sounds according to the maxim " keep moving forward“!
