How to be a Junglist: The Hand Horn Special
Today’s post is dedicated to Kristobal, boss manager at the venue Pumpehuset in Copenhagen. The hardworking people at the popular venue has just managed to land an awesome deal with Københavns Kommune which means that the venue in its current form (which is top form and still evolving) is safe and sound all the way until the year 2024 – which is a VERY CHRISTMASSY YEAR, we might add, so JUngLEkalenderen approves in many ways.
So here’s a pic of Kristobal, conveniently placed in front of a sign that reads December 13th!
IS THAT A COINCIDENCE? Of course not. Nothing is a coincidence in JUngLEkalenderen.
And here’s the article on the good news, all fresh: http://politiken.dk/ibyen/byliv/art5737045/Spillested-reddet-Pumpehuset-får-usædvanlig-julegave-fra-kommunen
The crew at Pumpehuset likes their basslines to be deeper than deep. And they like their music to be dark, mean, sometimes unpleasant and sometimes downright weird – and we salute that. I mean, JUngLEkalenderen doesn’t salute a genre like hardstyle as such, to be honest, but we salute the fact that somebody is musically curious enough to explore the uglier soundscapes, too.
So today, let’s give it up for Pumpehuset, home to many drum’n’bass parties, high quality death metal extravaganzas and cosy long table afternoons under the chestnut trees. We celebrate this with a post dedicated solely to a handsign that’s immensely popular with both the junglists and the metal heads.
THE HAND HORNS!
Here’s a handful of junglists having a great time with the handsign at Roskilde Festival 2008.
