Founded at the end of 2016 by three DJ’s Rue Oberkampf combines 80s ecstasy with the atmosphere of fog-shrouded, strobe-lit dance temples of the techno era. The combination of urban electronic music’s gritty drive with Julia’s French-German vocals reminds some critics of a more forceful version of Deux or Kirlian Camera: yet at the same time it creates something entirely original. See their performance, know your religion….theirs is a transformative experience. They embody ecstasy, the transcendence of societal boundaries, and a dark longing for the here and now. Their concerts are magical ceremonies that electrify the masses.Rue Oberkampf now performs headlining shows, such as at Wave- Gotik-Treffen (Germany), Monitor Festival (Portugal), as well as in London, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, and more. In addition to their own tours in Canada and Europe, Rue Oberkampf opened for acts such as Molchat Doma, Lebanon Hanover, DAF, and Drab Majesty.The band has released various singles, EPs, and albums on Young and Cold Records, Motor Music, Ant Zen, and No EMB Blanc / Genetic.
