Satori & The Band From Space will kick off ADE in true style by delivering a never-before-seen show at Paradiso on Wednesday 19 October. For Satori, who recently released his fifth album ‘Dreamin’ Colours’, it will be the first time in two years that he and his Band From Space will perform in the Netherlands. The spectacular new visual performance will be developed in the coming months especially for ADE.
Satori (a pseudonym of Dutch-Serbian music nomad Djordje Petrovic) has been pushing the boundaries of what a live performance can be both musically and visually around the world since his 2015 breakthrough album ‘In Between Worlds‘. With his groundbreaking ‘Maktub’ concept, he has bridged the gap between a ‘traditional’ performance and an electronic set.
“Creating the sounds and beats on the spot creates a very different dynamic than if you plug in a USB and want to force the audience,” Satori says.
“If you manage to synchronize the tempo of the performance with the rhythm of the audience, then everything becomes relative, you merge into the whole and the music becomes more dynamic, the experience almost psychedelic. Playing this way is risky, but the adventure makes the musical journey exciting for everyone.”
With that musical adventure, Satori will not only kick off ADE with The Band From Space on 19 October, but also immediately set the bar for all other artists at the international showcase festival for electronic music.
The performance is the culmination of an exhilarating summer, in which Satori has a residency at the iconic Club Chinois in Ibiza, performs at major international electronic festivals such as EXIT (Serbia), Off Sonar and Audioriver (Poland), and has several live recordings planned worldwide, including one already legendary ‘Maktub‘ show at the Pyramids of Giza.
The summer of 2022 also marks the start of Satori‘s own Maktub Records label, the first signed single being released at the end of June. To celebrate ADE 2022, Satori’s first release with The Band From Space will appear on the label.
