Kvarteret, Sweden’s new 2,200 capacity club has now opened, with Gerd Janson, Jackmaster and Avalon Emerson locked in for its debut season.
Located in the Slaughterhouse district of Stockholm, Slakthusområdet, an area known for its nightlife, we first reported on the venue last month. Operating five days a week from June to September, the likes of Carl Craig, DJ Seinfeld, Mall Grab and Jayda G are all confirmed to play, as is Larry Heard, who just shared his first Mr. Fingers album in almost 25 years.
The opening sessions, from 1st - 3rd June, saw locals such as Karima F, Daniel Savio and Zernell Gillie providing the soundtrack, and supporting fresh domestic names is apparently a key part of the plan.
According to an interview in Totally Stockholm with one of the founders, Alex Drewniak, the music policy will involve everything 'from indie, disco, house and techno presented by mostly local talent' from Sweden on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Thursdays will be centred on larger shows, such as Guy Gerber's first date in the Swedish capital for ten years.
