Hard Daze Night is an outrageously fresh club night in Club 8. It was lifted by two legal aliens in exile in Amsterdam Gary Shepherd. (DJ Alec Smart) from UK and Maxim Chapochnikov (DJ Goldfinger) from Russia, both djs and music fanatics.  For the love of music they joined forces at indie label KidNap Records and scored a few hits picked up by the likes of 2 Many DJs and Stéphane Pompougnac (Hôtel Costes). Goldfinger is a man behind salonUSSR and Moskow Diskow, who sucks on his roots and loves groovy music from around the world. Alec Smart does irresistibly catchy remixes under the name Streamer as a part of StreamerPilot team, makes music for movies and theatre, but most of all exercises his excellent skills on the dance floor as a CDJ wizard.

Hard Daze Night stands for the sound of now. That is fresh and spicy, furious and ecstatic, beautiful and indecent, groovy and spanking. Think wobbly electro, baile funk, Baltimore, UK funky, dubstep, gypsy electro, tropical tech and hip swing.

For the Doggy Style edition of Hard Daze Night on May 7 those dressed in a dog fashion get a free entrance.

You can also play pool and ping-pong all night long.
Start 23:00 finish 4:00

Damage 6 euro

Gogi Dzodzuashvili  alias Post Industrial Boys
Georgian poet/ composer Gogi Dzodzuashvili alias Post Industrial Boys creates subtle futuristic electronic ballads both swinging and meditative, along with live acoustic guitar. It's a mix of easy listening tunes and melodious spoken word vocals, revealing unique Georgian melancholy under the surface of the playful lightness.
In the last 12 years Gogi released 6 albums with various vocalists and wrote music for theater and film.
Marika Asatiani is at the moment a resident artist at Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. She will do a visual accompaniment to Gogi's musical performance.

“100% proof oddness from German Popov aka OMFO aka Our Man From Odessa. OMFO has been exploring the under-reported world of Central Asian musics since the beginning of the decade, achieving some fame with the inclusion of two tracks from his 2004 'Trans Balkan Express' LP on the Sascha Baron Cohen film, 'Borat'. For his thrird album 'Omnipresence' OMFO has tripped back to the steppes of his original homelands to record everything from traditional folk melodies to the restaurant bands of Tashkent and their tinny keyboards. If, like us you're infatuated with the Sublime Frequncies Radio series you'll get an exotic kick out of this”. (The Telegraph)
The OMFO band includes German Popov (eletronics, flutes, vocals), Faiz Guzainov (violin, keyboards), Bakhtiyar Eybaliyev (percs, vocals), Dmytro Beloyartsev (buzuk, rabab), Gogi Dzodzuashvili (bass), Dejan Zaric (percussion).

Primitive Equations DJs
Primitive Equations is a team, researching the cultural archetypes by using ethnographical and anthropological data in a multi-medial performance. 

Both members of Primitive Equations Maxim Chapochnikov (Orphologist) and German Popov (OMFO) are collecting and making field recordings from various sources: radio, tv, dusty records from the Golden Age of ethnographic research, their own field recordings and findings in Siberia and Central Asia, but also field recordings as an artistic genre. 
At the Flying Carpet they introduce a dj set of groovy field recordings. Authentic tribal music, hilarious Bollywood disco, Turkish rock’n’roll, savage dance music, Polynesian nose flutes and war chants.

DJ Goldfinger

DJ Goldfinger (Maxim Shaposhnikov, 1963) was born in Russia in the Urals and lives since late 1980’s in Amsterdam.
Apart from being a club dj with SalonUSSR and Moskow Diskow, he makes soundtracks for films, (art) performances and (sound) happenings, and produces music. Under the moniker Captain Cook he has years of experience in creative radiomaking at Radio100 in Amsterdam.

Runs a label of adventurous music called KidNap Records.
“Music to watch the paintings by” is how Goldfinger calls his sets at the Van Gogh museum. Every set is finely tuned to current moods of the city and the theme of temporary exhibits. Think classical, soul, film music, instrumental funk, jazz, world, electronica, sound collages and experimentations mixed by Goldfinger for interaction with the visitor’s impressions of art. Relax and reflect.

Led by acid surf wizard Oleg Gitarkin Messer Chups will present their newest disc "Heretic Channel". The album is loaded with incredibly strange sounds of church organ, theremin, singing saw, scary vocals, and natural screams. In their music MESSER CHUPS combine surf, bizzare film samples and sounds from the 50's and 60's B-movies. The show is completed with scenes from trash cult movies of the middle of the last century - Betty Page, Bela Lugosi, zombies, Russ Meyer's and Ed Wood's creations all mixed in videocollages of the master Gitarkin.
