At home with her again shot by Annabel van Royen in Amsterdam

“Watching the sunrise on Monday morning is a dystopian sight: tarpaulins, crisp packets and paper cups fly like tumbleweed. Single waterproof boots stand lonely in puddles of mud. Airbeds pepper the landscape. There is detritus everywhere. An influx of cheap, disposable tents means that campers abandon their temporary living quarters.”

HER AGAIN Interview by Angela Donskaia Photos shot for Subbacultcha by Annabel van Royen in Amsterdam

On 14 June we’re organising L.A.N. Party at De School featuring some of our favourite local artists. One of them is DJ, writer and activist Emma van Meijeren. You might have heard her before in the podcast De Schermerzone or seen her live behind the decks as her again. On a sunny morning in Amsterdam, Emma guides us through the place she calls home and gives us a glimpse of who she is.

Books are very important. I read every day, sometimes over 10 minutes and sometimes for hours.

calls out sexism, racism or homophobia at the moment nobody wants to hear or talk about it. It’s the same spirit of the sticker with the smiling sun sign from the All men? Nein danke project.

What is your favourite book?

What was that all about?

Ah, I think that’s impossible to answer. If all stories would be destroyed and I’m only allowed to read one for the rest of my life I would choose Astrid Roemer’s Was getekend.

I started that around a year ago together with Fenna Fiction. The line-ups for a lot of big festivals were being announced and I just got so tired of seeing that the majority of artists were male. I had just bought a t-shirt with a smiling sun logo that said ‘Heterosexuality? Nein Danke’. Originally, the logo is from an anti-nuclear movement and said ‘Atomkraft? Nein Danke’. I was attracted to the passive aggressiveness of the smiling sun. So we launched stickers and t-shirts to address the issue of too many mostly-white-male line-ups.

Yes, because I feel like you need a balance, especially if you want your writing to have some sort of engagement with politics. It’s important to organise and do different things to engage with people. Hey Emma, thanks for having us in your home. Have you always lived in Amsterdam? I grew up in the suburbs of Utrecht. I always lived at the same house with my parents. Until about four years ago. Then I moved out for a semester abroad in Santa Barbara and after that, it felt like the right time to move to Amsterdam. What makes something a home for you? Honestly, home is where the Wi-Fi is. My friends and family live all over the world and I’ve never felt much at home in the cities I lived in. So the internet is really important for me to connect with people. Your room looks super bright and is full of books. How did your room look like as a child? Everything had the same pattern: the curtains, my bedding. Everything was covered in stars, moons and suns.

You DJ under the moniker her again. Who is she? She’s like a feminist killjoy. It’s a term coined by Sara Ahmed that describes the person who

Could you tell us something about that poem on your mirror? It’s a poem by Judith Herzberg. I came across her poetry last winter. I was struggling a lot with my mental health and I opened the book on a random page at this poem called Moed. It reflected really deeply on what I was going through. There are these five lines that I think are beautiful: Lopen is op voeten balanceren, op straat zie ik de warme wezens die ook de onbegrijpelijke moed hebben gehad om op te staan in plaats van niet. I think when your health is interfering with your day-to-day life, it can be such an individualizing and isolating experience. I hate when poetry tries to universalize such experiences. Judith makes a connection outside of the individual experience which is not universal, but more of an intimate relationship to the next person—who could be anyone. That’s very comforting to me. — her again plays 14 June at the L.A.N. Party at De School, Amsterdam. Free for Subbacultcha members.

My Own Heaven by BEA1991. Directed by Jona Honer.

I came across your name so many times on the internet. From podcasts to line-ups and articles. Are you always busy with so many projects?

How important are books in your life, then?


Candy and tears in the club

COUCOU CHLOE Interview by Angela Donskaia Photos shot for Subbacultcha by Carson Davis Brown

A glistening underground sound and dainty dark aesthetics. That’s COUCOU CHLOE at first glance. She blends vocal raps through her synths and evokes a software sound with a clubby atmosphere. On top of that, she’s the co-founder of the NUXXE label, together with Sega Bodega and Shygirl. On an early morning in L.A., while she was getting her first cup of coffee, we chatted about surprises at the airport, sour candy and self-love.

Cutest desire you have?

Hazards of getting to know you?

For a long time, I’ve had this obsession with wishing for someone to pick me up at the airport, holding a board with my name on it. I wish a friend would surprise me like that. Sometimes people have these crazy drawings for the people coming home. I’m always so touched by these kinda things.

I have a lot of love to give, so be careful. And I also don’t give a fuck, so be careful.

Love of your life? I guess that’s gotta be myself. I mean, it’s important to not forget you. At first, I wondered why I’d be loving myself consciously. But lately I started to and it made sense actually. It’s not selfish or too self-centred. How could you get to something healthy without loving yourself? Sometimes I even listen to In love with myself by David Guetta, haha.

Objects you can’t live without? Too lame to say, but my phone. And if I can be a bit extra, I’d ask for a pair of headphones with it. Definitely those two. And my laptop.

Utopia, what does it look like to you?

Open space you’d love to perform at one day?

Can you describe it in 3 tracks?

I really want to perform in a big parking lot. Or this place in America where you have these monster trucks doing all kinds of crazy stuff. I wanna perform on top of one of these trucks with a blasting soundsystem.

A place where you cry a lot, but where you smile a lot too. I feel like it’s more of a sensation, rather than something I can see. The feeling is easier to describe by tracks indeed. I was a bit emotional this morning and this is what I was feeling like:

Extrovert or introvert?

Otomo yoshihide - Modulations #1 and #2 Chopin - Waltz in a Flat op 69 no 1 Playboi Carti - Kid Cudi

Most of the time I’m pretty introverted. — COUCOU CHLOE plays 8 August at Garage Noord, Amsterdam. Free for Subbacultcha members.

Coolest people in your network? My grandma. And all my closest friends who are also people I work with. Like the people I work with through NUXXE, like Sega Bodega and Shygirl. And Oklou. What did you do before making music? I was in art school, Villa Arson in Nice. But I wasn’t the best student or going to school much. I guess I was partying most of the time. Yet, it really helped me to discover that I wanted to make music. At parties, I connected with so many people and planned all these projects with them. It was so stimulating.

Occasions you will never forget?

Candy you love most?

It could be anything, it could even be someone smiling in the street. Whenever I’m performing in a club, people are shouting and showing love. That feels really special. Lately, I caught myself so many times performing and about to cry on stage.

Oh, there are so many things to say. I really love the big Chupa Chups lollipops, with the chewing gum inside. They’re the best. Mmm, and the little candy eggs. They’re my favourite, together with Bubblizz. And soft cherries too, actually. I feel like when you get candy, you can’t just get one bag. It’s a whole experience, and you should get all the flavours you like and balance them out.

Under your skin: what makes you feel most emotional?

My music goes parallel with what I think and feel. For a while, I didn’t really want to feel soft emotions or hear my voice. For my new EP, I included a lot of different emotions. And now when I perform those new tracks I catch myself having wet eyes. It’s just super new and intense to me. But it’s beautiful.

A Mad Performance Party

MAISON THE FAUX Interview by Angela Donskaia

Ah, festival season! Days of madness, sweaty dancing and drinking beers. Immersing in new music and art, from dusk till dawn. The best way to celebrate summer hardcore. From all the line-ups we’ve scanned, there’s one performance that really caught our attention: MAISON the FAUX. This fashion house and performance group is building a Center for Humanity on the green grounds of Down the Rabbit Hole festival. It’s a transparent temporary house where visitors of the festival will be invited to take part in multiple ceremonies focusing on rituals in life: from birth to death. Intriguing, right? We called up Tessa de Boer, one of the co-founders together with Joris Suk, and asked what they’re all about. A DV ERT ISEMEN T

How would you describe MAISON the FAUX? MAISON the FAUX is a creative studio posing as a grand couture fashion house. Fashion is a form of art that connects to so many other forms of art, as it’s so related to identity. The work of MAISON the FAUX is determined by its multidisciplinary approach. We create “FAUXperiences” that challenge ourselves and our audiences to view the world in a new light. We believe fashion shouldn’t be limited to merely something you wear, but also something you experience. If I translate it from French it seems to mean “house of mistakes”, is that what the name refers to?

A DV ERT ISEMEN T

Eye Filmmuseum eyefilm.nl /shadow

MAISON the FAUX is translated to House of Fake or House of the Fictional. The name sounds quite pretentious and jokingly refers to bigger French fashion houses. But at the same time, it shows you that not all what it seems. In our work, we reflect upon many boundaries between the real and the fake, the ugly and the beautiful, the worthy and the worthless, etc. What’s the central message of MAISON the FAUX? We primarily focus on being human; on human behaviour, humanity and the individual freedom of humans while working in a group and society. We advocate the importance of being free and just being yourself. For instance, we don’t make a distinction between women’s or men’s wear; we create HUMANWEAR. We want to create room for personal development and freedom. So embracing every aspect, including every variety, is part of it.

Having been with them from the start, following 5 years of Subbacultcha producing the Down The Rabbit Hole festival guide, we’re thrilled to announce we’re currently working on the 2019 edition. This year’s gorgeous pocket-sized magazine will feature fact and fiction; from recent favs to pop culture icons, obscure finds and treasure maps to guide you straight to the sweet spots. Just saying: If you want a glimpse into the magic that is Down The Rabbit Hole festival, grab your copy at De Groene Heuvels whilst you’re there. <3

Is that why you chose a festival setting? Because people usually act a lot more free-spirited and open-minded there? Yes definitely, a festival audience is very interesting to us. Not everyone is always sober at a festival like they might be if they went to a theatre play in a fancy old building. We consciously look for interaction with our audience, and the unpredictable aspect is what makes it so interesting to us. We love making performances that stand in close relationship to the place they’re performed at. What should we expect at Down The Rabbit Hole festival? The performance will be called Centre for Entertainment. It’s about wanting to entertain an audience. The story is that we’re following MAISON the FAUX entertainers while they’re getting ready for the ultimate performance of their lives. We discover their rituals, question what performance actually requires, and what state of mind the performers are in. The rehearsals are super fun already. It’s a madhouse. Can’t wait! What should we drink while we watch? I think you should put a drop of LSD in your drink if you want to experience it to the fullest, haha. I don’t recommend using drugs, but if you do then you can drop by our tent and we’ll help you further.

Prepare to melt away with a deep sonorous bass, skittering beats and vivid lyrics. We had a chat with Zubeyda (DJ Haram) and Camae (Moor Mother) about exposure, spas and heavy nostalgia.

You are represented by Discwoman, a progressive collective and agency in electronic music. What makes this agency stand out? Zu: I feel like whenever women and trans artists can come together it’s a win for everyone. So we need more collectives like this and people who self start things to help their community. Discwoman actually makes sure that the ones involved are getting enough resources. Exposure is a trap. Discwoman is not about the looks, it’s about trying to get the artists paid and represented correctly as well. Your album, SPA 700. Does it have similarities with an actual spa? Refreshing, healing and sparking new energy? Zu: It’s actually literally the idea behind the title. Spas are important places for women to heal, talk and exchange feelings and ideas. Dancing is also related to feeling things and feeling safe. And the ‘700’, in 700 Bliss? Camae: 700 bitches living inside society’s shit. 700 is an infinite number though because we continue to develop and reach out to other artists to collaborate with. The crowd for this music will naturally grow out of people that identify themselves with the topics we are singing about. Your lyrics seem to have a political side to them. Is there an inherent form of activism or is it merely a soft encouragement to open up perspectives? Camae: It’s up to the listener to interpret this, but nobody has to force it. That’s the beauty of music; word magic and sound magic. If people tune in, they can get the whole message or just get the message through the drums, for example. The beauty of music is that you can keep finding new things to tap into. The word and sound magic create waves. We don’t force anything that is reactionary. We do all of our stuff through love. We’re not folding or crumbling.

SUBBACULTCHA X HF CLUBNIGHT OT301, Amsterdam

Every summer, Holland Festival offers a huge program of international performing arts, inviting artists from far and wide. The world on stage – for an entire month. HF invited Subbacultcha to curate a club night, where we try to translate their mission statement in the program of the night. After the last year’s iconic edition, the only proper direction would be going even louder. And we did. On the bill, from different spots on the globe: Prison Religion, Nocturnal Femme, Bonaventure and Chernobyl.

Saturday 6 July

KIRIN J CALLINAN s105 (De School), Amsterdam

Kirin J Callinan is a decadent moonbeam. A butterfly. A pop prince in jester’s clothing. Birther of internet memes, wearer of kilts and cowboy hats. Musicians spun into his starry orbit range from Mark Ronson and Jimmy Barnes to Connan Mockasin and Alex Cameron, with whom Kirin released hit track “Big Enough”. Get sucked into a romantic mania pulsating with kinetic energy.

JUAN WAUTERS s105 (De School), Amsterdam

Juan Wauters delivers idyllically skewed folk. Listening to his songs is like being immersed in a cool body of water: refreshing, brisk and utterly awakening. La Onda de Juan Pablo, released early 2019, was composed over two years as the singer-songwriter travelled to different Latin American countries. Currently performing with vocalist Carmelle Safdie (of Beachniks) and vibe-maker-in-set-and-lighting Matthew Volz.

Kim David Bots

Melkweg, Amsterdam

GothBoiClique is a Los Angeles based rap collective, consisting of several key actors in At Sneaks + Linda Fox at Dethe Nieuwe Anita, fusion between trap and emo ever-rising Amsterdam music. Together with Melkweg, we’re welcoming emo-rap pioneers Cold Hart, Fish Narc, Horse Head, Mackned, Yawns and Wicca Phase Springs Eternal. Orbiting around moody melodies and rattling hi-hats, the members of GBC wear their heavy hearts on their sleeves.

Casting a bleak forecast for Brexit, Farai serves up a political commentary that is full of depth, anger and subversion. Post-punk for the millennial malaise. Visceral poetry delivered with stoic resolution. Navigating London’s landmarks and the experience of being part of the African diaspora, debut album Rebirth is a new-wave battle cry.

Danny Boyle’s masterful take on Irvine Welsh’s novel, Trainspotting (1996) is a hyper-moving and humorous portrait of four Scottish heroin addicts. Garage band Teddy Hit capture the essence of “Cool Britannia” with their songs for ‘slackers in love.’ Think Ultimate Painting, Weezer or Ty Segall.

Kelman Duran’s approach to DJing is more than unique. Utilising the Caribbean music he grew up with, alongside vocal refrains lifted from dancehall and reggaeton, hip-hop acapellas and clips from historic speeches, he live links drum loops, creatingPaul off-the-fly, Jansen original & Zn. edits. An experimental filmmaker by trade and classically trained as a double bass player, Kelman expertly reconciles two disjointed musical nodes: party and the transcendental. DJ support by Arif!

In his distinctive glided-clockwork aesthetic, Anderson insightfully reflects on the human condition. Duo Feng Suave will transpose the 1970’s vibe and psychedelic soundtrack of the movie.

“Art institutions have been coming under a lot of criticism of late for their ever increasing formalisation, bureaucratisation and general loss of their once famed free spirit. Rather than to keep beating the same drum on these obvious restraints to the art school today, Mushroom Radio was set up to seek out and celebrate the extra-curricular activity that we could see happening around us within the school and to galvanise it.”

I envied him. It wasn’t the fetching shirt or the waxed Victorian mo. It was his peace in transit. He found tranquility, not in the provincial vista hurtling by - the hues of green and orange blurring together a palette of rural spring - but in rest. Being the recent recipient of involuntary cardiac abscission that I was, I ached for the armistice of unconscious, I pined for the pacification of my pondering mind and hurting heart, fleshy mounds of it towed behind the train carriage like a bloody breadcrumb trail of woe. The tracks lay slick with ichor, stretching back to that central station I once skipped through and now trudge. My mind traffics in impossible dichotomy: wondering what I could have done differently and also trying to accept it happened at all. I just want my noodle to grow fucking quiet and my upper lip to grow a fucking handlebar. Image and text by Max Favetti • @max.favetti

MUSIC THAT EXCITES ROBY The first part of the year is over, and it’s summer now. Although I think we’ve just come to the part where we realise we are well into the new year and we have to start low-key wrapping it up again. Bracing ourselves for the summer season, I assume we all have plans and expectations. So I would really like to look back at the last couple of months, for they were sick, thanks. Subbacultcha will keep on suprising you with great events to go to. Make sure to check our calendar for more Subbacultcha online/offline. Here is a little extraction from what’s in my playlist.

4 AM Forever

Emiranda Real Life

4 AM is the most spiritual hour. When night dissolves into day. The magic hour. The liminoid phase of dreaming. For this project, we ask artists to set their alarm clock to 4 AM and create something covering their lucid dream state at that moment. Divine creations at the most ungodly hour. 4 AMEN.

PATRICK CRAMER

АукцЫон Дорога CocoRosie Fairy Paradise (live)

Patrick Cramer is an interdisciplinary artist based in Amsterdam, currently studying at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. We asked him to rise and shine or stay awake until 4 AM. He told us: “I still had a lot of energy from the day before. I woke up easily and felt determined to capture something during my journey outside. Usually, I don’t walk outside at night unless it’s going home after dancing.”

Synd og Skam Op Ad Dine Lår COUCOU CHLOE Gecko

Patrick also wrote down his 4 AM adventure, documenting what happened before he made us some sweet art. Waking up is easy. At least, this time it was. I told myself: “Open your eyes and go outside.” I’m walking slightly drowsy and clueless towards Oosterpark, which is a few hundred meters away from my house. I am still wearing my clothes from the night before. I think that’s why I woke up so easily. As I enter the park I notice a broken bottle of red wine with the liquid flowing in two directions. I trace the flood leading towards the right. It’s the direction I take every morning when I race to school. A few steps across the bridge and I see a silver motion in the distance. It’s fast and very concentrated. I can’t tell what it is, so I decide to get closer. I see a guy practising some combat sport with a big sword, while he’s talking on the phone with his Bluetooth headphones. His breathing stays perfect while he’s jumping up and down, talking and practising at the same time. In the middle of the night. I followed the right direction of flooding red wine and it resulted in something better than sleeping.

PRISON RELIGION

Fashion designer Yamuna Forzani

“There’s as many genders as people in the world.”

Interview by Callum McLean Photo shot by Kim Kevin

Prison Religion are a threat to today’s idiocracy, to boredom, and to healthy ears. So sounded 2018’s O FUCC IM ON THE WRONG PLANET, all precision bursts of bass, sirens and otherworldly screams. With a new record on the way, we caught up with Warren Jones (‘False Prophet’) and Parker Black (‘Poozy’) to talk noise-warcraft.

KAREL’S MONTHLY PLAYLIST

A DV ERT ISEMEN T

Karel’s music blurs the lines between euphoria and melancholia. Seasonless and seamless. So we asked him to curate a monthly playlist. Full of auditive gems that caught his attention and blended with his daydreams. Tune in on our Spotify and get ready to click on the hearts next to all the tracks. Spotify: subbacultcha_nl

How did Prison Religion come about?

How important is dystopia to what you do?

We met in an airport. We also used to date each other’s parents.

The imaginative, implied future... It is the sum total of our actions right now. And you can explore reflection through dystopia, but it seems to be here already.

Who has the biggest scream? Whoever is the saddest or angriest, lol. We approach the voice objectively, then as a tool. In whichever way things need to be said is usually how they are delivered. Your politics come through quite abstractly – do you try to focus on concrete political themes or is your approach more of an emotional response? For sure, we feel like political ideas should come through as an emotional or abstracted response. The preachy voice transforms the music into something else entirely, which we try to be conscious of, but sometimes it feels good to outright say it. You’ve said Prison Religion is “music to beat the shit out of your oppressors” – is this music for mobilising or is its violence more therapeutic? Haha, yeah, both – it depends on who is listening and how they want to interpret violence. Violence is such a mutated thing in art, which varies by context and environment. I wonder how a lion might react if Prison Religion was being blasted. Or if that lion was in the club with us, how the music would sound. But, yeah, it is also therapy for some – those who understand how to control their violence. How do your politics chime with being from outer space? ACK ACK ACK

While the genre question seems a bit irrelevant to Prison Religion, your individual tracks do flirt with hip hop, industrial, bass, punk and even dub – where do these musical elements come in during recording? We prefer touching on genres and rhythms and ideas in music we fuck with, but we’re aware of the confines of genre. So, we would rather be confined to our own sounds, LOL! There are too many budding artists that pigeonhole themselves with obscurity. Our mentality is to be able to play wherever – from club to basement to museum. What riot are you brewing next? We’re finishing up an upcoming album called BEACHHEAD – a 20+ track LP (P_R07) through UIQ digital. It is riding a jet ski through oily waters stained by war, and there is a storm on the horizon. Underneath the waves are broken, rusted ships and bodies and relics of how things were. It is squatting in a threestory beach house with the power off, hearing only the crackle of barrel fire and groans of metal over the shore. The water rushes in at high tide. It is a room lined with objects found in the wreck without context from a broken system, recontextualized into something useful or ornamental.

— Prison Religion play 21 June at Subbacultcha x HF Club Night at OT301, Amsterdam. Free for Subbacultcha members.
