Jan Blomqvist announces European ‘Disconnected’ album tour
Widely renowned artist Jan Blomqvist will bring his fusion of genre-crossing sounds to all corners of the globe this year. Starting with a European tour for his recent album ‘Disconnected’, Jan will be playing several shows with his band, as well as, solo DJ sets across the continent.
Kicking things off in Germany, where Jan usually bases himself in the capital city of Berlin, Jan will soon move into Switzerland, Spain, Belgium, France and Ukraine, before dates in Lebanon, Turkey, Amsterdam and London next month. Following the European tour, Jan will be heading across the pond for a string of solo gigs including the esteemed Coachella Festival and Art With Me Festival in Coachella.
An innovative artist, Jan was one of the first producers to bring techno into the concert realm. Leading a band consisting of Christian Dammann (drummer), Felix Lehman (pianist) and Ryan Mathiesen (lyricist), the concert shows also include a light and visual show for a fully immersive experience.
Inspired initially by the punk movement during his adolescent years, Jan soon found his passion switch to the electronic movement, enjoying a variety of previous releases on Armada Deep; the sibling label to Dutch giant Armin van Buuren’s iconic imprint. With his ‘Disconnected’ album focusing on the constant connection of ‘the Facebook generation’, Jan’s production was the subject of widespread acclaim on account of his thought-provoking lyrics and rich, rhythmic melodies.
“The most important addition to the music on the Disconnected Tour is the light show that we developed with Shan Blume, a Berlin-based artist and a dear friend”, explains Jan. “That’s something to really look forward to!”
