Lena Willikens b2b Alicia Carrera


Saturday 09, Nov

When two like-minded DJs and dedicated sonic voyagers join forces and record collections to explore the infinite possibilities of a b2b set, the results can be fascinating, and highly inspiring for both those listening and those performing. No doubt the coming together of Amsterdam-based DJ and producer Lena Willikens and Barcelona-based DJ and Hivern Disc’s label manager Alicia Carrera will mark one of those rare and magical occasions during which everything seems to flow and make sense.

A resident of the Salon des Amateurs club, Willikens has been sharing her unique vision of all forms of elusive music for a while now, through her acclaimed DJ sets, productions, remixes and her own radio shows on Radio Cómeme and, most recently, NTS. In parallel, Alicia Carrera has been a special presence in the underground and DIY Spanish and European scene for years, sharing her unique vision of the visually and sonically occult as a DJ and as a graphic designer, through her Zauberstab fanzine/radioshow and sets on Dublab.es, Red Light Radio and NTS.

But beyond all this, what these two forces of nature have in common is their desire to sonically transport themselves and the listener to new and unknown places. We cannot wait to venture far out there with them.
