The Mutek Festival is putting on a whole day full of concerts and activities and an intense special programme that features The Orb, the legendary group formed by Dr. Alex Petterson and German producer Thomas Fehlmann, who are celebrating 25 years together and who were one of the most influential acts in the world of electronic music in the UK in the '90s for their role in the creation of ambient house. Also tops on the bill is American artist Shigeto and his downtempo hip hop, who debuts tracks from his latest EP, 'Intermission' (2015).
Speaking of debuts, Stefan Betke is performing for his first time in Spain. If his name isn't familiar, you might know him as the dub artist behind Pole, and he brings his new audiovisual project created with Marce Weber (MFO) – an elegant display of prisms and projections that explore contents and aesthetics of enchanged forests, the central theme of 'Wald', Betke's latest effort. Canadian sound sculptor Deadbeat is back at the festival to remodel the music from his latest release, 'Walls and Dimensions', characterized by his avant-garde dub style, which will also feature a performance by Adeline.
The day is rounded out by Q&As with Kara-Lis and Gerd Janson as special guests, speaking to Shawn Reynaldo from Resident Advisor and with visual artist Alba G. Corral, who presents #supportvisualists, a newly created initiative to be on the lookout for, spread info about, discuss and help the visual sector (VJs, visual staging, visual artists...).
