FRITZ HELDER (of AZARI & III) live

 

After CSS, HOT CHIP, BLOC PARTYs KELE OKEREKE, BONAPARTE & JUVENILES, DENGUE DENGUE DENGUE, LENA WILLIKENS, SHAO & the EC 2 year anniversary celebrations with  SOULCLAP in Beijing and the LOCAL SUICIDE / METRO TOKYO / JUNKS  & ECTOPLAZM tour through Ningbo and Hangzhou  we now are very proud to present you FRITZ HELDER and bring Hangzhou synthwave heroes JUNKS to your doorstep.

 

As part of Azari & III, Fritz Helder shifted the landscape of house; pushing up against, and pushing past, genre boundaries, with love and irreverence. Tracks such as Hungry for the Power, Reckless (With Your Love) and Manic became chart topping hits in the UK and Germany, propelling the group into a new stratosphere amongst the electronic dance ethos. Azari & III’s success culminated with the group dominating the European festival circuit, co-headlining a US tour with DIE ANTWOORD and a JUNO Award nomination for Electronic Album of the Year

 

After announcing their hiatus in Jan 2014, Helder, long term choreographer of NELLY FURTADO and previously signed to her label NELSTAR he worked on his appropriately titled debut “A Force of Nature”. And as the name suggests, Helder is exactly that live: Ambitious and fierce. “This being my first solo endeavor, I feel like my naïveté and vulnerability are on full display with this first collection of songs. I’m giving up the ghosts of my past and carving out a place of my own. I purposefully ventured away from what I thought people would expect from me.”
