16 Bit Lolitas – Esther Silex – Cider House Mules at Flash

Friday, July 21st • Bar opens 8PM, Green Room 9PM, Club 10PM.

Dutch duo 16 Bit Lolitas are progressive-house heavyweights. A flagship signee to the revered Anjunadeep imprint, their back catalogue of impressive cuts stretches back to the early aughts. Over their lengthy career, The duo’s remarkably tight productions continue to be crafted with extreme care and emotion, creating an authentic atmosphere that avoids overused trends or obvious techniques.

Cologne based Esther Silex is the newest addition to the free spirited Swedish label Studio Barnhus. Her in-depth knowledge as a selector began at the tender age of 17, leading to an eclectic sound not only as a DJ but as a producer as well. Her musically diverse productions are impossible to pigeon hole, but never cease to burn up the dance floor.

From 2003 onwards, Ariaan Olieroock and Peter Kriek aka 16 Bit Lolitas, form a solid and highly successful producer’s duo. Their productions are known for their patiently crafted, sophisticated sound, produced with emotion and care.

Currently signed to leading label Anjunadeep, they are one of the label’s longest standing flagship acts. Having been releasing on the label for almost a decade, the duo are behind a slew of much-loved label classics – ‘Nobody Seems To Care’, ‘Deep In My Soul’, ‘Murder Weapon’ and ‘Beat Organ’ to name a few, each track good for millions of Spotify streams.

In the 18 months since their last release as 16 Bit Lolitas, Ariaan and Peter have been busy collaborating with British singer-songwriter Tim Digby-Bell under their Cubicolor alias, with a critically acclaimed breakthrough album “BrainSugar” and live band show.

16 Bit Lolitas returned with the four-track ‘Peninsula EP’ last month showcasing their unique melodic sound. Opening the EP is signature moody house cut ‘Peninsula’, a highlight at last Autumn’s ABGT200 live broadcast at the 12,000 capacity Ziggodome in Amsterdam.

“Dance, dance otherwise we are lost” the larger than life modern dance choreographer and ballet director Pina Bausch once said. The Cologne based DJ and producer Esther Silex deeply believes in those words of wisdom and took the statement as one of many inspirations behind her debut EP “Pachamama” for Sweden’s finest free spirited electronic music label Studio Barnhus. The EP title refers to the old mother earth goddess of the indigenous people of the Andes, who is an independent deity that has her own creative power to sustain life on planet earth. For Silex she is a divineness that follows her on each and every step as a female with groove in her heart.
After a nomadic upbringing all around Europe she started to play records at the tender age of 17 and quickly became an integral part of Cologne’s house and techno scene. Her sets are anything but predictable, with an eclectic selection that somehow weaves seamlessly through techno and house to soul, funk, afro and disco. This spring, whilst spending lots of time with her Cologne roommate Matt Karmil and learning from his experience and musical wisdom, he helped her finalise her debut EP. The three tracks named ‘Hans’, ‘Heinrich’ and ‘Oskar’ of her debut release, reflect this musical diversity and don’t adhere to any formula, whilst remaining entirely and explosively dance floor friendly.
