Skip & Die Love Jihad

at: BAR (old location)

The Dutch/ South African quartet Skip & Die, make an intriguing blend of cosmic psychedelia genre-blending dub and afro futuristic rock beats, drenched in socio-political undertones. The band met up with us in the middle of their club tour for the promotion of their first full length album "Riots in the Jungle" and played a stripped down version of their song "Love Jihad". The setting was provided by the recently moved BAR, a pop-cultural landmark of Rotterdam's night life,  in one of the last days of its residency in the West Kruiskade.

BAR, was founded by local pop-up party organisers Maatschappij voor Volksgeluk, in 2011 as a traveling bar and quickly became, due to its cozy and relaxed sphere, one of the most popular night life destinations of the emerging Rotterdam party scene. It was located for 2 years it the west kruiskade, before moving to its newer and bigger location at the Schieblock. BAR’s aim is to bring livelihood to forgotten areas as well as re-energize Rotterdam’ s night- (and day) life.
