Both solo as Ø, and in Pan Sonic with Ilpo Väisänen, Mika established blueprints for Techno and Power Noise whose influence is strongly felt in 2014. Mika has collaborated with Autechre’s Sean Booth, Charlemagne Palestine, and Fennesz, among many others.

Ninos Du Brasil is the carnival-inspired Italian percussive duo fronted by international performance artist, Nico Vascellari (Coda Lunga/Von Archive). Their febrile live show channels voodoo rhythms, noise and techno, presented with flamboyant costumes and cosmetics.

Helmed by Spanish sound artist Roc Jiménez de Cisneros since the late ’90s and inspired by geometry, metaphysics, noise, cosmology and rave culture, EVOL apply rigorous method to make delirious, brutalist algorithmic compositions at the extremes of dance and electronic musics.
