We are excited to welcome Perspectiv Arts Kollectiv to their first appearance at Just Dance; Autumn Fire. They'll be reaching deep into their roots to weave a tapestry of ancient rhythms intertwined with modern sonic patterns to create a deep global groove dance experience. This will be a truly special night!

Hailing from Mozambique, Perspectiv (the DJ duo of Jason & Shamil) is first and foremost a shared dream set in the belief that our common humanity can be made visible through musical expression. The Perspectiv Arts Collective is the group of young creatives attempting to transform this very dream into a visible reality. The group has its roots in Mozambique’s bustling capital, Maputo. A truly multi-ethnic metropolis where the assortment of sights, sounds and smells epitomizes the polymorphous character of Mozambican identity.

Expect African and latin percussion, bass, and trancelike grooves. Perspectiv Arts will take us on a musical journey to bring fire to your Friday. Resident Just Dance DJ Handford will be opening the night with his latest musical treats.

Visuals for the evening will be crafted live by the talented VJ Kashub.

Just Dance is a positive consent-based intentional dance party where all are free to express themselves to their deepest level! All are welcome :-)

:: PERSPECTIV ARTS KOLLECTIV ::

Perspectiv is first and foremost a shared dream set in the belief that our common humanity can be made visible through musical expression. The Perspectiv Arts Collective is the group of young creatives attempting to transform this very dream into a visible reality. The group has its roots in Mozambique’s bustling capital, Maputo. A truly multi-ethnic metropolis where the assortment of sights, sounds and smells epitomizes the polymorphous character of Mozambican identity.

Musical sounds have always been a quintessential necessity, a tool for survival. This was the language through which messages regarding the doings of daily life were expressed, as well as a medium bonding the world of the dead with that of the living. The power of music’s all pervasive reach continues to permeate through every junction of daily life. This reality is nowhere more obvious than on the mother continent, Africa. It is a force that unites, a force that celebrates, that mourns, a force that defines our very consciousness. Music is mystical. Its ability to hijack bodies and minds dubs it as nothing less than ‘supernatural’.

:: HANDFORD ::

Handford is inspired by the intersection of the traditional musical legacies of Africa, India, Europe and the Middle East with modern sample based electronic music making methods and is an active music producer. He enjoys collaborating with vocalists and instrumentalists to co-create musical journeys. His artistic goal is to forge connections between the spheres of deep house, downtempo global bass music, jazz, and world rhythms. Festivals to his credit include Burning Man, SubLunar, Otherworld, & Burn In The Forest.

:: VJ KASHUB ::

Kashub's name stems from the tribe of his ancestry situated along what is now the Baltic Coast of Poland. The tribe, now dispersed and displaced, lived peacefully isolated amidst sand dunes and swamps along the Baltic since before the dawn of the State of the Teutonic Order some 800 years ago. VJ Kashub brings powerful visual projections to induce a spiritual scene so as to reacquaint long lost souls of his ancestry onto our dance floor.
