Producers trio VUURWERK, part of the Run Tell Secrecy collective (www.runtellsecrecy.org), draws its creative energy from emotional suggestion and tactile sensation. Rather than adhering to genre-specific musical characteristics associated with dance music, VUURWERK challenges listeners by combining ambient and industrial with techno, dubstep, breakbeats. Always on the edge of the underground & the overground pop. VUURWERK aims to drench the club experience in a comfortable melancholic haze, creating a dissonance between dance music & intimacy. It’s the kind of out-of-body experience you feel quite comfortable in.

Fueled by a delicately rare DIY IDM esthetic, their last year’s (April 2013) ‘Me+One’ LP vinyl holds the distillated drops from the early VUURWERK Ep’s (2011-2013, Me EP - Plus EP - One EP). This record received undeground attention when it got shared on the famous Boiler Room UK platform. This record was mastered by Sam John (Mount Kimbie, Fantastic Mr Fox, Aphex Twin…) & released on Kompakt & Run Tell Secrecy (their own label/collective).

Currently gearing up to release their upcoming full album (2016), kicking things of with a couple of remixes and bootlegs (School is Cool, Bon Iver, Arsenal, Balthazar & more), as well as original material on Lo Recordings (London). Late 2015 sees them touring with a new audiovisual installation mixing ghostly piano work, exotic percussion and glorifying vocals by guests such as Climb X, Justine Borgeus and Sylvie Kreusch whilst filing stage with strobes, haunting visuals and chaos.

Past endless summer, VUURWERK has played at the international showcase festival, South By Southwest (SXSW - 2015) in Austin, USA as well as a gig during the Paris Fashion week in ‘The Silencio’, a club designed by one of the bands favorite directors, David Lynch.

Previously played on: Pukkelpop, 10DaysOff, Nou9 Bucharest, Melkweg Amsterdam, Patronaat Haarlem, DeKreun, Stuk Leuven, Muzikodroom, KultuurKaffee Brussel, Nijdrop…

Supported by: Studio Brussel – Select track of the week 2014, NTS Radio London, Boiler Room London, XLR8R, Vice Magzine, 22tracks, DeMorgen, DeRedactie, Subbacultcha!, Cutting Edge, Fuzz Magazine, DaMusic…
