Shackleton is one of the most influential and uncompromising figures in exploratory bass music culture. From his pioneering Skull Disco imprint with Appleblim and the seminal Fabric mix, Shackleton has been zig-zagging in increasingly adventurous musical directions, using prolific output on Honest Jon's and his own Woe To The Septic Heart! label to hone a musical lexicon that has his customarily subtle serialist motifs, dazzling rhythmic tessellations and irrefutably dread, post-industrial low-end scored through its DNA.

You can hear Shackleton perform his new album on Thursday, 30th of September in Kino Šiška.

One of the fathers of the local electronic scene returns with a premiere of his new music! Octex, with his unique sound synthesis, marked international currents in the field of dub techno, which he later deconstructed and deepened through experimentation, modular synthesis, broken rhythms, field recordings and atmosphere building. On his comeback album Mindrifft (Polynya music, 2021), he goes a step further, taking us into a subtle play of frequencies and repetitions into the hypnotic fringe of sound perception, into pulsations and rhythmic shifts, into the loop of repetition and difference that forms in our auditory channels beyond the basic sonic matter. But these are not sonic eavesdropping. With them, alongside the sonically electrified bodies, Octex also takes us into the dance in our minds.

You can hear the premiere of new music from legendary Octex on Wednesday, 29th of September in MAO.
Swan Meat is a producer and DJ from Washington, D.C. based in Cologne. Since breaking onto the scene in 2017 with her EP BOUNTY, a tribute to classic Metroid games, she has carved out her own niche, perfecting a sound in which sweeping string arrangements, 8-bit synth melodies, and gigantic techno kicks meet in a weird and eerie whorl. She has since released myriad singles, remixes, and the EPs TAME, Knife Splits Ice, and FLESHWORLD. A resident DJ on London’s Rinse FM as well as one-half of the production duo House of Suns, she has proven herself versatile and ever-evolving.
