Step through the front door into the colourful world of Elmer. During Elmer's Open House, rapper/producer Elmer returns to Melkweg with very ex-tra show featuring friends Onegg, Splitter Splatter and Fags of Destiny. You've never seen anything like it. No, really. No, really really.
Elmer combines provocative rawness, disarming honesty and the colorful world of comics in an unapologetic act that brings a much needed breath of fresh air to the hip hop world. He (or she, whatever you feel like) is inpired by Peaches, Mr. Oizo and De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig, creates electronic funky beats and lyrics with humor and self reflection, and addresses topics such as fear of commitment, panic attacks and gender equality.
Elmer is here to break the mold of what a true hip hop artist should look and sound like. Come break it with us.
Analog outfit Onegg is comprised of sisters Marysia and Ewa Saras, along with their bandmate Mariette Huls. Nestled in Utrecht, their studio serves as a hub for creating hauntingly beautiful synth-driven electronica. When they hit the stage, their live set takes you to a dreamy realm with mesmerizing melodies and infectious beats that will ignite your dance spirit.
FAGS OF DESTINY
The Fags of Destiny are extraordinary beings, each possessing unique powers and exceptional campness. Their abilities that transcend the boundaries of the ordinary (duh) and claim space in what is homosexuality. For them too much is never enough! They are the chosen few, destined to play the game of destiny. Passing from one world to another, shaping the course of faggy worlds and other countless realms. Are you ready for a taste?
