  • Cochlea to Mark One Year Anniversary with Just Her Gig


    One year after debuting with a spectacular four-day music festival in Sinai, the party-pushing folk at Cochlea are set to celebrate their first anniversary with a party headlined by British artist, Just Her.

    Set to take place on Thursday 8th of December at Venue Lounge & Bar in Zamalek, the night’s line-up also includes Ahmed Saleh on opening duties, as well as Ahmed Samy and JORG, who are set to close the night with back to back sets.

    While beach-side music festivals have been en vogue in Egypt over the last year and as more and more names are entering the nightlife arena, few have managed to nail down an identity as much as Cochlea, with recent Cairo-based series, Lastbreath, having cemented the series as a haven for pure music lovers – no gimmicks, no themes, just some of the best local talent on stage.

    Lastbreath has seen the likes of Ahmed Samy find a fitting post-VENT platform, for example; John Damien played a rare Cairo gig; the incumbent Student DJ champion, Gaser, has also found a space to let loose.

    But of all the excellent bookings, Cochlea’s biggest coup is Claire Spooner, aka Just Her. Having found fame as part of Him_Self_Her, the  producer, DJ, musician and songwriter has gone on to make waves on her own, while releasing material on top labels including Toolroom & Crosstown Rebels.

    Describing her music as “deep melodic emotion-filled grooves”, the night is shaping up to be a fitting celebration for Cochlea.
