Charlotte Bendiks | Ana Helder
Serious music for playful pleasure, a beat almost sustained beyond polyrhythms and an arctic soul playing for warmer temperatures. This is IRONI, a concept from Charlotte Bendiks. Where the Tundra meets with the equator and primordial pulses find new forms of sensual physicality IRONI exists on its own terms. IRONI is earnest about music, but focussed on the floor and every session sees Bendiks invite a DJ from her expanding consortium to Jæger’s basement. Calling on friends from Tromsø, Berlin and Cómeme, DJs and producers that embody the spirit of IRONI, this residency is not what it appears to be." Charlotte invites Ana Helder to her residency this week.
Living between two continents, Ana Helder prefers to perch on the fence. Between the her place of origin Argentina and her second home Cómeme she has seduced with four EPs full of subversive, tricky and deeply moving tracks and garnered a reputation as a DJ.
Her DJ sets are dedicated to the rough riding way of dance music, where a loco kind of Jack is king and wily rhythms thrill your senses. When she is not touring around the globe, she dances with her South American peers in cities like her hometown Rosario, Buenos Aires or Santiago de Chile. During long and sweaty nights of liberal party madness they groove to her track called “Gasoline” – a possible future classic that is part of the latest heavy hitting Cómeme compilation. Currently she has released the funky piece ‘Fiebre De Marte’ EP on Cómeme: a post – punk voyage.
