Oberman b2b Konduku
Rotterdam has long been home to one of the world’s most vibrant and unique underground electronic music scenes. It’s here, amongst clubs, bars and record shops that have nurtured the talents of a myriad of lauded DJs, producers and record labels, that Nous’klaer Audio founder Sjoerd Oberman cut his teeth.
Now dividing his time between a myriad of musical projects and a growing list of DJ bookings, Oberman’s rise to prominence has been shaped by a desire to foster the same feelings in others that he felt when raving with friends at teenage house parties, impromptu adolescent beach bashes in the sun-rich Zeeland province, and as a dedicated dancer in Rotterdam’s hottest and sweatiest clubs.
At TodaysArt, Oberman will play an exciting b2b set together with Konduku, a DJ and producer based in Amsterdam, releasing on Nous’klaer Audio. In his work, Konduku often refers to his ancestral roots, drawing inspiration from Turkish percussion, jazz time signatures and polyrhythms inherited from his Ankara-born musician father, his mother’s time spent as a Balkan folklore dancer, and the picturesque natural beauty of the hill hosting his ancestral home.
