In February Enchufada returns to the booth of Lisbon’s number one club Lux for yet another episode of the Hard Ass Sessions, our bimonthly residency that has been making a new generation of kuduristas sweat on the dancefloor for the last two years.
This next event brings another debut in Portuguese territory with French Fries, a central figure in the new Parisian electronic music scene who’s been making waves among lovers of bass music hybrids with records such as ‘Arma’, ‘Laquisha’ or ‘Yo Vogue’. In 2010 he was formally introduced to the Enchufada family through our mini-compilation series that gave our residency its name, where we released his fiery Savage Skulls collaboration Marawa. Now we bring you the man himself, for an unmissable opportunity to feel that grade-A Parisian bass on the front row.
Being a night of firsts we’ll have yet another debut with Monki, the first female DJ to rock the Hard Ass Sessions booth, whose mixing prowess earned her a spot among the vanguard of the new generation of British DJs, having been chosen for the new season of the renowned ‘In New DJs We Trust’ program of BBC Radio 1. We invite you to also trust the selections of Monki, who promises to takes on a beat voyage through the best that the UK underground has to offer.
Finally – and because it wouldn’t be a Hard Ass Session without betting on the new wave of Portuguese talent – we’ll also be featuring two of the most recent members of the Enchufada family. We’re talking about Voxels, the up and coming house lovers, and KKing Kong, the young representative of the moombahton style, who round off the most unpredictable night in Lisbon with their global vision of contemporary electronica.
