Hosted by Stein Bjelland
Over the last few years, Varg, the main alias for producer Jonas Rönnberg originally from northern Sweden, has manifested himself, not only as one of the most productive new voices in European electronic and techno music - with countless releases and projects - but also as one of the most interesting of the lot. Completely free from any concern of genre notions towards his music, he moves freely from ambient and drone to experimental techno and draws from the Nordic black-metal aesthetics. He performed at such prominent festivals as the Poland’s Unsound, Berlin Atonal or Insomnia festival. The latest entry to Varg’s Nordic Fauna series – Gore-Tex City, received a positive review in the Pitchfork online magazine. Besides his performing career, Varg runs the Stockholm-based dark techno label Northern Electronics alongside fellow Swedish producer and DJ Abdulla Rashim.
Lišaj is a Czech musician whose sound is based on droning mixtures of field recordings infected by slow beats, lo-fi sampling and liquid genre motion. His first release, called Szara,was built as a construction made from field recordings gathered on the Hel peninsula with an attempt to “dig a tunnel between the noise and the voice”. It was released on the consonant label Genot Centre.
Maoupa Mazzocchetti (BE)
Brussels-based Maoupa Mazzocchetti debuted on Unknown Precept with a cryptic dispatch from the brink of hardwave and minimal electronics, experimenting with thick quakes, paranoid tones, and caustic drum machine welts. Call it what you will, Maoupa’s vicious industrial terror adds sex appeal to discomfort for when the dance floor turns ugly.
Sugar (DK) - DJ set
Sugar is 1 of the 2 founders of the Copenhagen based Fast Forward Productions; an organization presenting a new take on DIY rave culture where all events is build from the ground up, focusing on a quality artistic profile, a strong social and political engagement within Copenhagen´s local scene, and on collaborating with like-minded crews and concepts from abroad..
His musical background springs from more than a decade with punk and metal music, transitioning into harder electronic music and techno in recent years on both sides of the booth. Sugars DJ sets are focused around a broad variety of old and new hard, funky percussive techno.
Varg, Maoupa Mazzocchetti and Lišaj are in 2017 part of SHAPE, a platform for emerging music and sound artists supported by European Union's Creative Europe programme. Synapse Knowledge is kindly supported by a grant from Czech Ministry of Culture.
