Two audioscapes full of mutant dance music, moody renderings and mind and body-kindling electronica are to be discovered this evening.
London duo James Ford and Jas Shaw, aka Simian Mobile Disco, return to CTM in support of their new full-length, Whorl, with a specially conceived av-show. Remembered as a CTM 2013 highlight, SMD combine their recent move into highly textured atmospheric soundscapes with their signature body-moving dance tracks.
Berlin’s Gajek appears in support of his new album, Restless Shapes, drawn from a wealth of music that ran the gamut “from post-rocky electronica to complex and moody renderings of intricate introverted beat structures to mutant dance music” before being passed on to Modeselektor for release on their Monkeytown Records in October 2014.
Simian Mobile Disco is the long-running project of James Ford and Jas Shaw, whose capacity for stylistic reinvention has made the UK production unit one of electronic music's most enduring and widely accessible acts.
Matti Gajek is a Berlin-based animator and musician. He has been applauded for his illustration video work accenting the “Beacon" track release for the prominent Warp Records musician Clark. Gajek’s own mysterious music composition, Restless Shapes, debuted at the end of 2014, on Modeselektor’s Monkeytown Records, after an auspicious introduction to the label by Clark.
