Montréal electronic duo, Pelada, is the collaboration project between vocalist Chris Vargas and producer Tobias Rochman, who have resonated with audiences for their re-contextualized take on early Chicago house and Detroit techno, blending these sounds with more abstract modern club music and Vargas' politically-charged, Spanish vocals.
The pair play live using sequenced analogue synths, drum machines, digital samplers to create something that feels alive, expressive and raw. The resulting sets are known to be wild and confrontational.
Most recently they contributed the track ‘Desatado’ to the Discwoman/Physical Therapy benefit compilation ‘PHYSICALLY SICK VOL.2' advocat...ing for prison reform via the Brooklyn Bail Fund, with FACT Magazine calling their track “A total game changer.”
DIS FIG (NYC/Berlin)
A Berlin via New York transplant, Dis Fig’s music earnestly reflects her past and present. A member of NYC label PTP fka Purple Tape Pedigree, whose mold-melting output is woven with the same thread as her own, her sound touches on a shifting landscape of club genres and welds together unusually paired ideas to construct a new storyline.
ANI KLANG (NYC/Berlin)
Ani Klang is an experimental club music producer, DJ, and visual artist hailing from New York City. Her fast-paced, genre-bending dance tracks have caught the attention of labels like Infinite Machine and Knightwerk, the former of which released her Debut EP in September, 2017. With her fiercely energetic club tracks infused with avant-garde sound design, hammering drums, and bursts of demonic, distorted samples from around the globe, her music aims to invigorate, innovate, and infuriate the blossoming genre of experimental club music.
This event is part of the Northern Resonance Canadian Music Series, presented by ACUD Macht Neu with support from the Botschaft Von Kanada. It features a selection of Canadian artists and music-related film, to share the depth, scope, history and future of the nation’s rich music culture with the city of Berlin. Each edition is a reflection of Canada’s position on the world stage as a vital and active contributor to the arts. Curated by Shub Roy.
