February 13 will see the Ästhetiker bombdrop into Saalbach-Hinterglemm for their inaugural Winter MÄSH. As you’ll see in the video, the plans they’ve got for the park look sick, and the music lineup makes us want to send it already… Be There.
A Stereo MCs vs Bam (Jungle Brothers) DJ set has been announced as the International headlining act to rule the Thursday night FM4 Club of the Ästhetiker Winter MÄSH presented by G-Shock, the inaugural Music, Art and Snowboard Happening from February 13th to 15th 2013 in Saalbach Hinterglemm. On Wednesday “The Ruff Pack“ feat. Holunder (Blumentopf) kick off the event at the Red Bull Brandwagen Street Party. Three days of musical mayhem will culminate in the 20-years Texta and Ästhetiker Open Air concert backed by the S.K. Ambassadors on Friday night.
International Headliner: Stereo MCs vs Bam (Jungle Brothers) DJ set
With one of the best live dance music shows on the planet, the mighty STEREO MCs have been leaving their mark on the landscape of Pop and dance music for over 20 years. Often labeled as one of the UK’s most iconic bands and with Brit awards and million selling albums behind them, the Stereo MCs present a big and bouncy Dj set. If that wasn’t special enough, frontman Rob Birch is joined by his old friend of the Jungle Brother’s AFRIKA BABY BAM aka BAM Djing, hosting and performing classics and freestyles. Supporting acts on decks are FM4´s own DJ Chrisfader and DJ Testa.
Set for the Thursday night in the Schwarzacher (www.der-schwarzacher.at) directly at the base of the contest area, they sent a description of what to expect: “Join the Ultimatum Experience with Stereo M.C.s v.s. Bam (Jungle Brothers) taking you on a journey with an eclectic mix of Ultimatum cuts and edits on the decks – dancing shoes are essential!”
Red Bull Brandwagen Street Party: The Ruff Pack feat. Holunder (Blumentopf)
The music line up will already be in full effect on Wednesday when The Ruff Pack and Holunder heat up the crowd at the free to all Red Bull Brandwagen Street party in the centre of Hinterglemm. Based on a classic jazz guitar trio, The Ruff Pack takes instrumental HipHop to another level. Stephan Kondert and Matthias Loescher, both born and raised in Austria, collaborated in many different projects for over 15 years. In the world famous drummer Daru Jones (Jack White, Talib Kweli, Black Milk, Slum Village, etc.) they found the perfect match for their open-minded visions in sound. Spicing up the beats through a microphone Holunder of Blumentopf is set to flash the crowd – after all the man is considered a freestyle rap miracle. To make the Night perfect the Desperados x Vice x Winter MÄSH Opening Party will be featuring The New Tower Generation in the Älternative Location Glemmerkeller.
Open Air Main Stage: 20 Years Texta Concert backed by the S.K. Ambassadors
Celebrating the formation of two crews in the year of 1993 and „takin´ it back to tha old school“ on Friday night Texta hits the mainstage backed by the S.K. Ambassadors at the base of the event area. Almost as if in a parallel universe, the history of Texta and the Ästhetiker have much in common: The members of both crews grew up in the 80ies, officially formed a posse in 1993 and from then on became respected underground players in their small enclosed scenes. Off the mainstream radar both crews have pioneered in laying down a lo-key but solid fundament in autonomous activity for generations to come. Supporting act is Austria´s „next best kid“ Average MC who was just about out of his diapers in 1993, but today stands for both the Ä and the Texta way and philosophy like few others; respect, competition, progression and family.
As new partners on board of the greatest International Snowboard Team Contest in the heart of SalzburgerLand, Austria, Blue Tomato and Desperados have confirmed their support.
Steve Gruber, president of the Ästhetiker, presents the setup of the Nightpark Saalbach Hinterglemm for the great happening in the brand-new teaser video, good times ahead!
