This Thursday will be the fourth HEX event at Razzmatazz, the most historic multi-room and clubbing space in Barcelona.
HEX returns to its most extensive and largest format offered in Barcelona this December 5th. HEX at RZZ offers a different experience to Barcelona’s ravers, always maintaining the essence of the industrial habitat, with corners and spaces offering artistic proposals from various disciplines.
HEX will open the doors of Razzmatazz at 11 pm and the music will keep going in its 3 main rooms until 6 am. From there, the dance revolution will move to a secret location afterparty.
Until now, HEX at RZZ has featured top names such as Ben Klock, Jeff Mills, Oscar Mulero, Dax J, Len Faki, Blawan, I Hate Models or SNTS. Looking ahead to this Thursday, the Main Room, specially equipped by HEX for the occasion with a reinforced L-Acoustics sound system, will host one of the great legends of the Techno scene, the British Ben Sims. With him will be Regal, head of Involve Records and one of the most international Spanish talents. The hard and emotional sounds of PØLI, one of the two co-founders of HEX, complete the line-up on the Main Room. Froch’s lighting installation will round off the room’s refurbishment.
The upper room, The Loft – Monasterio Showcase, again equipped with Funktion One sound from Codigo Sound, will be co-programmed by Monasterio, one of the main agents of the Techno movement in Moscow and responsible for many of the raves in the recent years in the Russian capital. Monasterio will have one of its residents, Stef Mendesidis, also a regular at Klockworks and whose sets are always full of dynamism, and another of its residents, Unbalance, also a member of A R T S, who will play one of the two live shows of the night, always with a scent of classic Techno. The other two stars are France’s Anetha, one of the most interesting emerging talents in European Rave, and Kobosil, a Techno referent who never turns his back on the most industrial proposals with EBM and noise touches. Lorenzo Raganzini, the other half soul of HEX, completes the line-up, with its consistent sound full of strength. In the visual section, local artist Acid Thermal, a regular in the movement, will present his new project Muscle Balance.
The third and last room, Lolita, located in front of The Loft and offering a more intimate and closer to the artist experience, will have 3 prominent names of Barcelona’s scene. Pedro Pina will play the other live act of the night, based on modulars. Mod.1 will delight with its impeccable vinyl mixes and Neiland will distribute its traditional Techno sound loaded with paranoid and astral sounds.
Razzmatazz is still, since it was born, the biggest club in Barcelona. It is an old factory converted into a dance space. Its industrial aesthetics, its iron staircases, its floor, its two terraces, the gallery turned into The Loft… Everything is aligned with HEX. Despite being a Thursday night, the club will open only and exclusively to welcome the movement.
Walking through the corridors and corners of the club, the ravers will come across sculptures, installations, paintings and various artworks. All of them have been curated by the multidisciplinary artist Misspattyangulo in collaboration with other local talents, who will be in charge of the artistic facet, an undeniable part of the HEX movement. Laia Flynn will present her video Bucket Full Of Eels; Oriol Reverter, a selection of pictures from the promotional video HEX at RZZ; Nelson Lubo, his photographic collection Maps; Raquel Orrit, her dark painting; Juan Thielen, his sculpture of iron and concrete; Leonka, her gold paper art together with Oscar Hove and his demonic masks made in Ondo Tattoo’s studio; Maria Barghouti, her minimalist paintings and sculptures; and, finally, the harness brand Bijoux Indiscrets, with a special installation for their products. Misspattyangulo itself will star in a live painting performance as part of its Brujas project.
The revolution of the Rave movement in Barcelona has a new page to write this Thursday, December 5th. Welcome to the complete experience: HEX at RZZ.
