International talent dominates the second batch of artist confirmations, with the accent also on ingenious audiovisual performances, experimental composition and Mexican premieres. Legendary member of The Orb, Thomas Fehlmann graces MUTEK.MX audiences with his maximalist sound, while fellow German, the mysterious and culty Vril unleashes his abstract techno buzz. American ambient compositional producer Steve Hauschildt and Canadian synthesizer whiz Sarah Davachi unfurl waves of harmonics. Moody Swedish electro duo Orphan Ann join compatriots Dorisburg with live sets, while Dutch sensation Palmbomen II promises one of his infamous trippy slo-house sets. This new wave joins an already globally-inclined lineup that includes British superstar Squarepusher, Babyfather, Actress, Emptyset and Alva Noto, representing almost a dozen different nationalities as MUTEK.MX underlines its reputation and function as an essential bridge for its audience to the world of cutting-edge electronic artistry.

The first event of 2017 will have Lotic, Jlin and Wasted Fates as guests
With only days before MUTEK Montréal begins, here in Mexico we decided to celebrate big time with a unique and one-of-a-kind event: the confirmed artists for our series of exclusive NANO events are Jlin, Lotic and Wasted Fates. In our insatiable quest for new experiences for our audience, MUTEK brings together three artist which mix diversity and the unusual. In this second year of NANO events, and in the context the Edition 18 of our Canadian forefathers, this is the very first time these three will share the same space, while each one will offer something unique to give us a memorable night of unstoppable dancing.
LOTIC (US) is a Berlin-based American producer, who will have his first show on MUTEK Montréal and his second in Mexico. Member of the Janus Collective, he promises to captivate with his uncommon techno full of eroticism.
JLIN (US), the American producer Jerrylinn Patton, pleased us in her last year’s presentation in MUTEK.MX at the Foto Museo de Cuatro Caminos. In May she released her second LP called Black Origami and with her electrifying footwork she will surely take us to discover new sound pathways.
WASTED FATES (MX), aka Octavio Kh, is a Monterrey producer and a self-taught multimedia artist. He is member of the N.A.A.F.I. collective and Extasis Records; he has been in Mexico’s most important electronic music festivals with his high intensity club music.

On August 24, a collective of Mexican artists will take over MUTEK Montréal to celebrate the city’s 375th anniversary.
Leveraging MUTEK’s considerable ties to Mexico’s capital, cultivated through 13 editions of MUTEK Mexico, these activities serve as a link between these two places. CDMX, the oldest capital city in the Americas and a modern, “alpha” global metropolis, is a hotbed of activity for contemporary art, music and food culture with an ascendant international profile. Presented with the support of the Agencia Mexicana de Cooperación Internacional para el Desarrollo, the Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores, Consulado General de México en Montréal and the Ministry of International Relations and La Francophonie of the Government of Québec, the activities representing Mexico City on Thursday will treat Montréal to the dynamism of this both ancient and young super-city.
