Montreal’s own duo, Pelada, returns to our stage to present their new album Ahora Más Que Nunca.
Support: Teykirisi and LaFHomme
In collaboration with
Pelada, the duo of singer Chris Vargas and producer Tobias Rochman, broke out of Montreal’s underground warehouse rave scene in 2014 after uploading tracks to SoundCloud which caught the attention of the global dance music scene. They spent the next five years touring the globe extensively before signing with Berlin experimental label PAN in 2019 and releasing their debut LP Movimiento Para Cambio. A record which Mixmag included in their 'Best Albums of the Decade' list, Resident Advisor named it 'One of the Best Records of 2019' while DJ Mag asserted “they are a vital and contemporary addition to dance music’s punk cannon.” The LP was featured twice on the godfather of punk Iggy Pop’s BBC6 radio show, who personally told his listeners, “They always wake me up. I like this.”
Their collaboration is a blend of urgent Spanish language vocals centered around themes of power, control, social justice with hardware samplers, synths, and drum machines. The unique sound has led them to perform in many different contexts, whether it be entire tours opening for more traditional punk acts like Iceage and Shame, to the exact opposite, performing live during peak times at techno clubs such as Berghain.
In 2023, Pelada returned to the live stage for a 3-part world tour. Part 1, which concluded in June, included stops in Italy, Switzerland, Japan, and Australia. Part 2 will see them visit the USA, Canada, France, and Germany in support of their highly anticipated 2nd album Ahora Más Que Nunca, which they are self-releasing. The new album features notable guest appearances, including Zambian-Canadian rapper and 2020 Polaris Prize winner Backxwash and trumpet player Aquiles Navarro (of Irreversible Entanglements, Impulse! Records). Both Pelada’s sound and ethos translate to a galvanizing live show that will spring dancefloors to action in festival contexts, switched-on club zones, and punk bunkers alike.
LaFHomme is a Tiohtià:ke/Montreal-raised DJ and digital artist that uses their craft as a spiritual practice through experiments. They value creating an intercultural polyrhythmic experience in reflection of their upbringing around various communities. They are inspired by many creative individuals in the diasporic rave scene such as Jasmine Infiniti & Estoc, and work to contribute to the QTBIPOC narrative.
TEYKIRISI is a Honduran DJ/Producer who mixes the vibrant and diverse sounds of the latinx diaspora, from the gritty sounds of reggeaton,dembow & batida, to sleek electronic sounds influenced by footwork, jersey club and techno.
Her passion for music goes beyond the dance floor, as she works closely with members of the local community to create events that showcase and uplift Latin American artists. Her events are more than just parties, they are celebrations of the rich cultural heritage of Latin America, and often offer a platform for fundraising to support social justice issues.
Teykirisi is the co-founder of Club Kadera.
