28th of April | Motiv Club | 22.00 hours | Ticket 15 lei | Facebook RSVP here

We are excited to announce the beginning of a new series of events - Black Rhino Music Sessions. Coming to a small club in downtown Bucharest, Black Rhino Music Sessions are dedicated to Djs and music producers. Our sessions aim to bring together artists and public in a cozy atmosphere where music exceeds its genre boundaries.

We were searching for some time for a small club that fits our criteria of atmosphere. We visited club Motiv two or three times before, and each time we were welcomed by nice people, open to all kinds of music genres. From bartenders to sound technicians and event managers, everyone there is happy to be involved in music. Another thing that drew our attention to Motiv is a brand new Funktion One PA and monitor system. Composed of 2 x bass F218, 2 x RES2 and 2 x Skeletal the sound is very well balanced and really do respond to that bottom frequencies. We do like a lot small clubs with low ceilings and a good PA, it creates a unique atmosphere. 

On the 28th of April we will have our first session for which we invited our friends Agmantav, Brusten and Serious Dub. Starting 22.00 hours, ticket price is 15 lei.
Each Black Rhino Session will be hosted by our crew members Low Freq and Fane.

Andrei Bucureci and Codin Oraseanu - Sep 05, 2018

After almost 50 years of a solid reggae genre where the harmony, rhythm, percussion and sounds where well established comes a new approach. Straight from the mother island of Jamaica, a new concept is born – the reggae revival. A term coined by Protoje, Chronixx and Jah9 to help them better market their sound.
