SWITCH at berlinClub
Thursdays will be Thursdays. They sit somewhere in the middle of the relief of a Wednesday and the laziness of a Friday. Where do dancers wander to on these forgotten nights in Madrid?
From now on, they will all meet to redefine Thursday nights at berlinClub. Well transform those Thursdays forgotten between Wednesdays and Fridays with guitar riffs and lipstick, House and Italo, Disco and Electronic, microphones and a circular dance floor.
Resident at an endless list of Madrid’s clubs (Mondo Disko, Coppelia, Rubble!, Crash, Wonky, Sport…), owner of Rotten City Records, and part of projects like D.Y.O.R. and Holographic Planes.
Breaking out of any single style limitation, Álvaro combines genres to create his own discourse, as a good follower of the ALFOS school (Sir Andrew Weatherall and Sean Johnston) where eclecticism and slow beats are concerned. His sets drink from fountains like New Wave, Balearic, Post Punk, and EBM, seasoned with the hedonism of House and the abstraction of Techno, and touching on the exotic sounds of the Middle East, the rhythmic inheritance of Africa, or the weirdest side of Italo-disco from the early 80s.
With his record label, Rotten City Records, he’s edited works of newcomers like JackWasFaster, meteoric artists like Red Axes or Marvin & Guy, and living legends like Justin Robertson, transcending once again the limits of genre, origins and speeds.
