KABLAM

[SE]

KABLAM kicked off her DJ career as a resident at Berlin's genre-bending Janus parties alongside Lotic and M.E.S.H. The combination of glossy melodies, hyperactive hi-hats, and bold rhythms found in her productions offer a sound that is allusive, brash, and completely new.

Born by the Swedish coast, Kajsa Blom lived in Berlin for several years before recently returning north. Janus, which started as a monthly party in a small venue in Berlin’s Kreuzberg, has recently held two parties at Berghain, booking producers and DJs such as Arca, Nigga Fox, DJ HVAD, Total Freedom, Venus X, DJ Sliink, DJ Marfox, and more. In keeping with her peers in the collective, Blom experiments with the radical possibilities of music, what a club environment is or can be, and what a dance floor looks and feels like. As a DJ, she manipulates digital tracks, taking advantage of the advanced possibilities offered by CDJs. She likes to play and mix contrasting genres, finding imaginative points of entry and combinations between them, using the parameters of space rather than time to structure the music.

As a producer, Blom makes tracks that are both hard and emotional, releasing them unofficially via her SoundCloud page. Blom has made remixes for Stockholm-based producer Dinamarca and Berlin singer/songwriter Dan Bodan.

KABLAM is supported by the 2016 SHAPE platform, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
