• About Magma •

Paris, France – One of music’s most innovative and eclectic ensembles Magma will be performing select US dates beginning in April 2015! Swirling riffs in odd time signatures, theatrical choir arrangements, heavy and distorted pulsing bass guitar, bombastic and minimalistic (sometimes both at the same time), dark and brooding, adventurous and angelic, jazzy or classical, but always with the highly innovative and original drums of founder and main composer Christian Vander. On the forthcoming US dates the legendary ensemble will be performing selections of new and classic Magma music!

“MAGMA is happy to return to the United States to play for Americans. We know you are passionate, respectful and curious about music. We find you to be generous and open. It will be a joy for us to see you this year.” – Christian Vander

Magma was founded in Paris in 1969 by Christian Vander, who derived his inspiration from a “vision of humanity’s spiritual and ecological future” that profoundly disturbed him. Vander was a self-taught musician, who received some tips from drum legend Elvin Jones. In the course of Magma’s first album, the band tells the story of a group of people fleeing a doomed Earth to settle on the planet Kobaïa. Later, conflict arises when the Kobaïans, who are descendants of the original colonists, encounter other Earth refugees. A distinguished aspect of Magma’s music is that Vander actually invented a constructed language, Kobaïan, in which most lyrics are sung. Later albums told different stories set in more ancient times; however the Kobaïan language remained an integral part of the music. Reportedly, Christian Vander is also highly influenced by the work of jazz legend John Coltrane. “For my work, it is still Coltrane who actually gives me the real material to work on, to be able to move on.,” says Vander.

Bootie Mashup, the international club brand that has helped popularise mashup culture around the globe, comes to Canada for ONE NIGHT ONLY! Headlining this night of mashup mayhem will be the clubs creators, San Francisco DJ duo A Plus D, who for more than a decade have become internationally-known as not only tireless torchbearers of the mashup genre, but mashup producers and performers in their own right. In addition to DJing, they also add a live element to their sets, as DJ Adrian (who also fronts live mashup band Smash-Up Derby) takes the mic to sing a few mashups live! As the SF Weekly wrote, “Committedly unpretentious and ready to rock, A Plus D deliver the perfect remedy for the occasionally snooty, often staid dance scene.” Helping them keep the night going will be Bootie Seattles resident DJs, Freddy, King of Pants, and Destrukt, as they all spin the best mashups in the universe!

Launched in 2003 by San Francisco DJ duo A Plus D, Bootie was the first club night dedicated solely to the then-burgeoning artform of the bootleg mashup — and is now the biggest mashup event in the world, with regular parties in several cities on four continents. Voted “Best Club Night” for the past nine years, Bootie celebrates pop culture both past and present, keeping your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations. Mixing and matching every musical genre, era, and style into one big dance party, it’s a place where everyone is welcome. And with free mashup CDs given away like candy, Bootie provides the soundtrack for the A.D.D. generation.
