FAST FORWARD X BASSIANI

We welcome you to 2022's first Fast Forward rave!
The shadows of the pandemic are slowly fading away, and it is time to reconnect with old and new friends and acquaintances.

For this event, we have invited back our Georgian friends & residents from one of the most legendary clubs of our time BASSIANI <3
Bassiani has, over the last eight years, been part of shaping the fast-emerging club scene and electronic music culture in Tbilisi and has been at the forefront of fighting for social justice for marginalized people and communities within Georgia.
We are honored to have them back in our city, and for this night of celebration, they will present their first-class residents, accompanied by our local warehouse superstars.

Even though most of you are well aware of our values and principles, we encourage everyone to read through our awareness ambition, make it our own and discuss it with your friends.

FAST FORWARD 2021

It is with the greatest pleasure and relief that we can finally announce the next Fast Forward Rave after more than 1,5 years in hibernation, and welcome you back at VOLUME!

Last fall was supposed to be our big 5th-year celebration, instead, we aged a year that felt like 10, along with the rest of you and we promise to bring our A-game for this belter of a party!

We felt blessed back in March 2020 that we were able to have one final dance just 3 days before the whole country went into full lockdown.
The last 18 months have most certainly been both mental and physical exhaustion for everybody around the globe, and we know many are still struggling to recover, artists, promoters, nightlife workers, as well as everyone else - both financially and mentally.
While most of the cultural sector has benefited from governmental relief packages, the alternative nightlife has been grossly overlooked, and it shows now more than ever, that it is time to change the narrative, and we start to acknowledge the socio-economic benefits that these safe havens contribute with to this city before they are completely gentrified away.

Since 2019 together with other like-minded crews from Copenhagen, we have been aiming to do this through the promoter organisation København Frie Promotere (www.k-f-p.dk).
We urge all promoters with the same mindset for a more inclusive nightlife to get involved and help to create better conditions for the next generation of revellers, clubs and organisers.

Fast Forward - Back into the Future

The future is here and its indeed looking grim. The planet is decaying faster than we realise, and xenophobia, political bigotry, fear and apathy in the population is spreading as the capitalist systems around the globe continue their scourge of the earth.
Now more than ever we must get together where we can, and celebrate the things that matter to us: love, diversity, acceptance, kindness, the longing and need for peace of mind for a little while, together and without the fear and hatred the system forces into our lives.

The future doesn't seem to be ours much longer, but for one night we will take it back! Back into the future, together!

4 Years of Fast Forward

4 years of Fast Forward, and we are now looking back at 40+ raves and concerts, a huge community of supporters and collaborators (built around and shaped by our amazing volunteers), an agency with 16 of the best producers and DJs the Copenhagen techno scene has to offer, and most importantly a constant push to promote a new way of raving which has sprung from a continued effort to try to create safer spaces at the venues we use; sexism, racism, homophobia and transphobia will not be tolerated !

To celebrate the last four years, we have invited a good selection of dear friends and amazing DJs:

Anetha - (Mama told ya, OAKS, Blocaus Series)
D.Dan - (Amninote Editions, KAOS, Mala Junta)
SUGAR - Fast Forward - (Euromantic, Kulør, Mama told ya)

Strøm Åbningskoncert: Fast Forward

Strøm Opening Concert: Fast Forward
Fast Forward Productions and Strøm invite to a double live set concert with two of Denmark’s most current and interesting electronic musicians at the small and intimate setting of Riddersalen’s wooden walls. Repro runs the Copenhagen-based label Euromantic, is one half of Funeral Future and has played a central role in carving out and strengthening Copenhagen’s techno sound. Rune Bagge is one of Copenhagen’s sharpest techno-producers - after his debut-EP, Ingen Tak Til Systemet, he released several tracks that vary in pace and composition, but all have a certain blend of melancholy and darkness in common. Fast Forward has a strong focus on inclusion and anti-discrimination and over the past years manifested themselves as one of the most progressive party-crews and agencies in Copenhagen.

Lineup: Rune Bagge, Repro
Visuals: Visuals: Björt Dánialsdóttir and Freja Sigsgaard-Hansen

In recent years governments all over Europe have lurched to the right, not least here in Denmark. Amongst a long list of new racist and xenophobic legislation – and as the neo-fascist Rasmus Paludan establishes his new party and is given government-funded protection for year-long hate-speach tours in areas with large Muslim populations – the Danish government is running several incarceration camps to hold rejected refugees. Living conditions in the camps are inhumane, children in them are being denied access to education, and according to humanitarian organisations many of the people held in them are showing signs of severe and increasing distress and mental illness.

Fighting against this shameful injustice is a growing movement called Together WE PUSH, which is dedicated to buying and delivering high-quality food and other necessities to the incarcerated families at the SJÆLSMARK camp, as well as organising events for the children there. Together We Push is comprised of a massive network of volunteers and is able to operate thanks to financial contributions from private citizens, support parties and fundraising initiatives.

2015 წელს დანიაში დაფუძნებული DIY პლატფორმა FAST FORWARD PRODUCTIONS ადგილობრივი სცენის ინოვატორ არტისტებს აერთიანებს. სოციალური პასუხისმგებლობის გათვალისწინებით, პლატფორმის მიერ ორგანიზებული ღონისძიებების ერთ-ერთი მთავარი მიზანი უსაფრთხო საცეკვაო სივრცის შექმნა იყო. სექსიზმის, რასიზმის, ჰომოფობიის და ტრანსფობიის წინააღმდეგ ბრძოლის ფარგლებში, FAST FORWARD-მა ერთგვარი ინკლუზიური სივრცე შექმნა, რომელიც საერთო ღირებულებების და ფასეულობების მქონე ადამიანებს აერთიანებდა.

დროთა განმავლობაში პლატფორმა იმდენად განვითარდა, რომ ლოკალურ კონტექსტს გასცდა და საერთაშორისო მასშტაბი შეიძინა. ამავდროულად, FAST FORWARD-მა არტისტების სააგენტო ჩამოაყალიბა, რომელიც დანიის ელექტრონული მუსიკის სცენის როგორც გამოცდილ, ასევე ახალი ტალღის არტისტებს აერთიანებს. მათ შორის არიან REPR, FUNERAL FUTURE, SUGAR, RUNE BAGGE, SCHACKE, DJ IBON.

SUGAR კოპენჰაგენში დაბადებული დიჯეი, პროდიუსერი და FAST FORWARD-ის ერთ-ერთი თანადამფუძნებელია. სანამ ის გლობალური სცენის ნაწილი გახდებოდა, დანიის მასშტაბით სხვადასხვა ღონისძიებებს უწევდა კურატორობა, რომელმაც სცენის განვითარებას დიდი ბიძგი მისცა, ხოლო SUGAR სულ უფრო მეტი ადამიანისთვის გახდა საინტერესო არტისტი. მისმა მუსიკალურმა სტილმა მნიშვნელოვნად განსაზღვრა ლეიბლის ჟღერადობაც: სწრაფი, დინამიკური და მელოდიური ტექნო, რომელიც FAST FORWARD-ის სამარკო ნიშანია, SUGAR-ის გემოვნებასთან აბსოლუტურ თანხვედრაშია.

პანკ-როკ ბენდებში დაკვრის შემდეგ, დანიელმა მუსიკოსმა SCHACKE-მ გადაწყვიტა, რომ საკუთარი შემოქმედებითი პოტენციალი მთლიანად საცეკვაო მუსიკისადმი მიეძღვნა. ის აგრესია და ბრუტალიზმი, რომელიც მის ადრეულ მუსიკას ახასიათებდა, წარმატებით ტრანსფორმირდა ტექნოშიც. COURTESY-ის ლეიბლ ECOTHERM-ზე და KULOR-ზე გამოცემული მუსიკით SCHACKE-მ ბევრჯერ დაამტკიცა, რომ შემოქმედებით პროცესში ის კომპრომისებზე არ მიდის.

დაარსების დღიდან FAST FORWARD-ის მისია იყო, როგორც დიჯეებისთვის, ასევე ცოცხალი სეტების შემსრულებლებისთვის განვითარებისთვის საჭირო პლატფორმა შეექმნა. ერთ-ერთი ასეთ არტისტად, რომელმაც თავისი შანსი კარგად გამოიყენა REPRO შეგვიძლია ჩავთვალოთ. მელანქოლიური ატმოსფეროთი და 90-იანი წლების ტექნო სცენის ნოსტალგიის გათვალისწინებით, REPRO ცდილობს საკუთარ მუსიკას ავთენტურობა და თვითმყოფადობა შეუნარჩუნოს. ტექნოს უკომპრომისო ხასიათი, რომელიც მის სეტებსა და ლაივებში მუდმივად იკვეთება, FAST FORWARD-ის საღამოს ერთგვარი კულმინაცია იქნება.

2018 წელს გამოცემული წარმატებული ალბომის, OSTATI-ს და მსოფლიოს სხვადასხვა საინტერესო სივრცეებში დაკვრის გათვალისწინებით, შეგვიძლია ვთქვათ, რომ გიგი ჯიქია (HVL) თავისი კარიერის საუკეთესო ეტაპზე იმყოფება. მისი მუსიკალური პალიტრა იმდენად მრავალფეროვანია, რომ როგორც სტუდიაში, ასევე საცეკვაო მოედანზე HVL ყველანაირი კომპრომისის გარეშე ახერხებს მსმენელისთვის სიახლეების შეთავაზებას. გიგი ქართული სცენის ის უმნიშვნელოვანესი არტისტია, რომელიც ადგილობრივი ჟღერადობის საერთაშორისო სივრცეში გავრცელებას წარმატებულად ახერხებს. თავის მხრივ ბევრი წარდგენა არ სჭირდება MERCURRIO-ს, რომელიც HOROOM-ის ლოიალური მსმენელის საყვარელი დიჯეია. როგორც თავად აღნიშნავს, შემოქმედებითი საქმიანობაში წარმატების ერთ-ერთი მთავარი განმაპირობებელი ფაქტორი განვითარების მუდმივი პროცესი და ზედმეტ შეზღუდვებზე უარის თქმაა. ეს მიდგომა კი კარგად ვლინდება მის დიჯეი სეტებში. მუსიკის შერჩევის და მსმენლთან ურთიერთობის განსაკუთრებული უნარი MERCURRIO-ს ახალი თაობის გამორჩეულ დიჯეიდ აქცევს.
