FRANKIE TWILIGHT (SE)
From the depths of the techno underground of Malmö, Swedish Frankie Twilight packs the punch right between Drexciyan depths and Legowelt’s mysterious moves, and delivers raw and pure drum machine anthems for the floor.
Not your usual techno producer, the woman behind this Alan Vega-esque alias does not subscribe to any genre definitions. Having played in a Berlin-based punk band as well as acting as resident DJ at a members only 78 rpm jazz club, to say her tastes are diverse is quite an understatement.
The DIY spirit is however a red thread throughout her musical career and on her debut EP for the Fasaan label.
Her feverish live jams are usually raw and undiluted. Sometimes they are weighted down with the moody blues of numbing synth chords, and sometimes they’re frying in the squelch of a classic acid (house) bath.
The deranged funk of her playful rhythm patterns will surely see you crawling and contorting your body to fit your limbs into the grooves, or sulking in a corner breathing in all of its gothic glory.
Frankie Twilight performs as part of the exchange programme of the Up Node network, invited by Intonal Festival in Malmö, Sweden. Made possible with support from the Nordic Culture Fund.
