DJ Lag from the home of gqom: Clermont, South Africa

DJ Lag is having a moment: Uhuru (Good Enuff, 2019), the album that pays tribute to the club that he forged, has gained wide acceptance in the mainstream while the tracks warm the dancefloors of underground clubs and forward thinking festivals the world over. As the perfect appetizer before his arrival at MUTEK MX, his most recent Boiler Room session is now available: an hour of pure Clermont-style party from Durban, South Africa, the city that launched gqom and uThayela, genres that DJ Lag has raised to a global level:

Don’t miss his Mexican debut in Nocturne 2, Saturday November 23.

>  This is how Sol Oosel will sound in Edition 16

The presentation of Sol Oosel as part of Edition 16 also marks the new sonic journey of the project, which starts with En allégeance à l’inconnaissable — Une étude en chorégraphie pour le flux d’énergie, a record with Umor Rex that will be performed live for the first time this November. Modular synths and drum machines are used by Sol Oosel as methods to explore mental states and unique ways to meditate and connect through sonic structures similar to those of ritualistic music. The premiere single, “Attunement for a Thunderstorm,” is out now along with a bonus track, a remix by James Place, Sol Oosel’s label mate and another part of the MUTEK MX Edition 16 lineup.

>  Listen to a preview of Maria W Horn’s new album

October 25th, Maria W Horn will release her full album Epistasis, the second album from the Swedish composer, founder of the label XKatedral, and part of the pro-drone collective Sthlm Drone Society. Epistasis will be released by Hallow Ground and you can now listen to the first single: a nearly 10 minute long piece that mixes the harmonic structures of early doom metal and processes based in Tintinnabuli, a style of composition inspired by the mystic experiences of Arvo Part with choral music. In the recording of Epistasis, Maria W Horn collaborated with close to nine instrumentalists, including violin, viola, violonchelo, guitar, and organ:

Maria W Horn will debut her live set in MUTEK MX Edition 16 during Nocturne 2. Tickets available.

>  Circle of Live: a new series dedicated to ambient and new tracks for XLR8

2019 has been an intense year for Sebastian Mullaert and the circuit of producers that have joined the Circle of Live platform, which never stops experimenting with other disciplines and formats, always based in improvisation. In the midst of their recent announcements is a new event series for Breakfast Club in Berlin, In Dreams, which uses the theme of the dance floor to raise the idea of collective improve through meditation, repose, and serenity, with ambient sessions lasting all night. Along with the launch of In Dreams, XLR8 presented their monthly compilation XLR8R+015, under the curation of Circle of Live with cuts from Mathew Johnson, Vril, Amp Fiddler & The Digitariansm and Sebastian Mullaert himself.
