Three SHAPE artists shared the stage on Saturday (11 June) for MeetFactory’s Museum Night event, alongside rising star of Berlin underground Why Be. The Janus-affiliated KABLAM and M.E.S.H. reinvigorate the dancefloor with their new blend of club sonics. “I like music that is sort of like looking at a painting where you intuitively have a sense that the image continues beyond the frame,” M.E.S.H. told us in an recent interview. Prague-born TOLE oscillates between his music and art practices. “What originally brought me to making music is its ability to be more free from a linear idea, when compared to visual work,” he said in an interview.

Norwegian DJ and producer Charlotte Bendiks was one of the several SHAPE artists performing at The Hague’s TodaysArt festival last weekend (23-25 Sept 2016). Her DJ sets focus on sexy dance and body music. Although her main genre is classic house, her sets are inspired and influenced by music ranging from disco to African groove and Latin beats. She is widely known for creating euphoric, hot and sweaty dance floors. Doing live vocals and percussion as well as integrating other musicians has become somewhat of a trademark for this girl – transforming the whole performance more into a happening instead of just a simple DJ set.
