Mutek 2010 Sneak Peek

JUNE 2010: One of the leading international electronic music events releases the first glance at artists performing at this year’s 11th Annual Mutek Festival in Montreal. I’ve really enjoyed my travels to Quebec for this, and last year was quite special – intimate and overwhelming experiences to be had in/outdoors. Always on the cutting edge of what’s out there, festival coordinators have been scouring the globe to find the brightest a/v talent, new work from veteran artist/producers and many surprises. This year they bring favorites Vladislav Delay, Matmos (check out their ’01 debut podcast), Tim Hecker, Mouse on Mars and Carl Michael Von Hausswolff to the stage as well as the following:

ACTRESS (UK), BEN FROST (AU), BRANDT BRAUER FRICK (DE), THE CARETAKER (UK), CHEAP & DEEP (US), DAVE AJU (US), DEMDIKE STARE (UK), DIXON (DE), DJ KOZE (DE), GUILLAUME & THE COUTU DUMONTS (CA), HENRIK SCHWARZ (DE), IKONIKA (UK), JON HOPKINS (UK), KING MIDAS SOUND (UK), MARSEN JULES (DE), MATIAS AGUAYO PRESENTS CÓMEME (CL), MINILOGUE (SE), MORITZ VON OSWALD TRIO (DE), NICOLAS JAAR (CL), PAUL KALKBRENNER (DE), PÉPÉ BRADOCK (FR), REBOLLEDO (MX), SAN PROPER (NL), SHED (DE), THEO PARRISH (US)

    Yes! Especially stoked about Ben Frost (on record I like, live it should be 10x better,) Demdike Stare, Dixon & Schwarz (especially if they appear at Piknic for a DJ set,) Ikonika, Von Oswald Trio (of course,) Paul Kalkbrenner (whose Berlin Calling movie I still have not seen,) Pépé Bradock, Rebolledo (amazing new school-er that is bringing change to the dancefloor’s current landscape,) Shed… and for TP, I’m just very scared of being disappointed.

    I’ve heard SO much praise about his DJ sets, they simply can’t all be justified. I expect lots of un-characteristic (for Mutek) old school Disco, Soul, Jazz & Funk, blended with current Detroit stuff, and instant bliss as ambiance. Too much to ask? I thought so.

    Nice blog, TJ. Glad to see you’re back. xo
