AN ON BAST

AN ON BAST

The unique combination of her rich imagination and excellent technical skills allows her to serve up a unique musical experience. During concerts, he moves from sampler to drum machine, from modular synthesizer to effects, showing a natural and confident bond with his machines. The result is a high-quality performance and total immersion in the created flow of musical energy. She has delighted audiences at many clubs and festivals around the world with her concerts, including Sonar (Barcelona), Fusion (Germany), Piknic Électronik Melbourne (Australia), Nachtdigital (Germany), 3000° Festival (Germany), and not so long ago at the famous and legendary Wembley in London alongside Carl Cox himself, who, together with Christopher Coe, offered to release her album “I Create As and Speak” on the label of the legendary Carl Cox. The album consists of eighteen tracks – deep and insightful musical experiments, forming a coherent whole. It is a peculiar compilation of future-oriented sounds, pushing the boundaries of contemporary dance music. Techno, acid – whatever they sound like – when performed by An On Bast, this is thinking about music absolutely off the charts. This album is a personal and evocative collection of songs in which the Anna explores her own evolution as an artist in these turbulent times finding new kinds of inspiration, and which she will present in the form of an unpredictable live act at SnowFest Festival 2023!

BASS_ASTRAL

BASS ASTRAL

Bass Astral is an artist who has redefined Polish electronic music, elevating it to the status of poetry. He is a visionary-alchemist who has found the recipe for synthetic gold and encodes this energy into sounds. Conducting human emotions with lightness, he has an incredible ability to combine subtle instrumental music with danceable electronica. He cites artists such as Nicolas Jaar, Flume, Nils Frahm and John Frusciante among his biggest inspirations. At the beginning of his musical career, he performed in the rock band Clock Machine, and later, together with Igo, created a novelty project on the domestic scene: Bass Astral x Igo. Not having dealt with electronic music before, he brings completely new solutions, far from the fashions and trends of the style. Today, his solo concerts are full of dance and improvisation live acts that stun audiences in Poland and abroad, and at SnowFest Festival 2023 it will surely be the same!

FISZ_EMADE_square

FISZ EMADE TWORZYWO

Polish group, performing hip-hop music in the broadest sense, including. with influences from such genres as jazz, downtempo and funk. It was founded in 2002 in Warsaw, on the initiative of brothers: music producer and instrumentalist Piotr “Emade” Waglewski and rapper and singer Bartosz “Fisz” Waglewski. In the concert version, they perform as FISZ EMADE TWORZYWO, with a greatly expanded lineup, supported by excellent musicians. Their album “Mammoth,” released in 2014, is one of the band’s greatest achievements. Recognized by many music journalists as the album of the year, it achieved Platinum Record status, and was also the winner of the 2015 Fryderyk Award in the Electronics/Indie/Alternative Album of the Year category. Their latest album, “Ballads and Protests,” is a strong return to their roots, the band’s musical journey to the 1990s, when the so-called music of the city – hip hop or electronica – was developing. It’s a sentimental tale of sounds that inspired and pointed the way of exploration, which we will try to address together at SnowFest Festival 2023.

ASTHMA

ASTHMA

The 21-year-old asthma, or rather Mateusz Wardynski, drew attention to himself just over a year ago when he released his first Polish-language song, Centrala. The rapper, who hails from Bielsko-Biała, previously wrote in English. And although, like Mata, he defends himself against the term “voice of a generation,” unlike the young Matczak, he is a rapper who truly creates conscious hip-hop; clearly and bluntly expressing his views. Importantly, Asthma speaks for society, not the environment or a class. “I always shy away from this phrase [głos pokolenia]. Do you know why? Because they are often attributed to an individual. And in my opinion, this is something that goes down a million throats, not one. This is what people will identify with. I would definitely prefer a situation where there are a million artists who speak out about certain issues, rather than one person who will be called the voice of a generation by the media, because it often seems insincere to me.” – he stresses in numerous interviews, and we are glad that a representative of the Bielsko scene will perform on the main stage of the SnowFest Festival, proving that Polish rap – including that created by younger generational artists – can not only be qualitative, but also extremely stagey and thrilling the crowds gathered in front of the stage.

DIMENSION_square

DIMENSION

His artistic pseudonym did not come from nowhere. Dimension, or Robert Alexander Etheridge treats his listeners to a multidimensional musical journey. On the one hand, underground sounds, on the other, radio vibe, these are the extremes on which he freely glides. Dimension is uncompromising in his musical work and does not shy away from experimentation. The songs signed with his name are distinguished by their lightness and energy. Dimension performs at all major festivals around the world, and collaborates with some of the biggest names in the drum`n bass scene such as Danger, Sub Focus, Wilkinson and Shy Fx. One could search in vain for a more unique artist who has defined the sound of drum’n’bass for years, and created his unique sound that has united all – even the most radical – listeners of bass music. With his new full-length album on the horizon, there will be plenty of pre-release tracks at SnowFest Festival 2023
