For the first time in Moscow you have a chance to see the only session of musical and visual hypnosis from trip-hoppers SOFA SURFERS!

Sofa Surfers is an Austrian project which manages to produce a fantastic music on the cross of alternative rock, trip-hop, dub, acid-jazz and chill-out. Few more tags may be added but it won’t help to learn the essence of their music. This might be just the case when it’s better to hear them and even more better if live because integral part of the performance is a fascinating visual show.

Sofa Surfers early works got the most positive though subjective comparisons with Massive Attack by mass media. Their track «Sofa Rockers» was included into the cult mix-compilation Kruder & Dorfmeister «The K&D Sessions» in 1998. Such masters of underground hip-hop as MC Dalek and Sensational and others took part in recording of the album «Encounters» (2002). 2012 album «Superluminal» happened to be so successful that it attracted a lot of new audience.

Deep bass, hypnotic rhythms, hip-hop recitative immersing into trance, incredibly powerful enveloping sound and completely stunned audience – these are the main concert characteristics of these gloomy Austrians.

Sofa Surfers are coming to Moscow at full strength and – what is of special importance to their fans – with original Nigerian vocalist Mani Obeya!

Opening act of the show will be a band from Moscow named Kirma. For 4 years already this unconventional band plays in the best clubs of Moscow and St.Petersburg giving joy to the fans with own compositions and those of related bands like Archive, Stateless, dEUS and Portishead. “Magazine” was the first single played by radios. “Delight”, the biggest hit of the band so far was included into soundtracks for two movies already.
A distinguished characteristic of the band is the unique and bright vocal of Eugenia Blagova and quality modern sound. The musicians do not restrict themselves within the boundaries of only one style and make the best use of their opportunities with trip-hop, lounge and dynamic pop-rock. Apart from authentic material there is always a place for Again (Archive) and Down Here (Stateless) in their program. At the moment the band is preparing their second album.
