PHONO FESTIVAL ROUNDS OUT 2017 BILL WITH COSMIN TRG, KLEIN, DJ LAG AND MANY MORE
The forthcoming 12th edition of the festival presents a full line-up that offers the adventurous listener music and sounds from Romania to South Africa and adds a hard hitting programme for PHONO Club.
Artists pushing techno, deconstructed grime and various shapes and forms of experimental music join the bill: The programme locks in a debut live set from Martin Schacke and Rune Bagge. Both of these Danish producers are known for their break-neck heavyweight releases on the Copenhagen-based label Ectotherm, founded by Courtesy and Mama Snake. Notorious for rapid rhythms and manic rave style, this special duo will torch the dance floor at PHONO17.
Three very strong experimental UK acts have also been added: Klein and Okzharp & Manthe Ribane have both recently released records on the nigh legendary London label Hyperdub, and joins the programme along with the techno-gilded, post-punky polyrhythms of Blood Sport.
Also added to the programme is Elysia Crampton who will play her first show in Denmark. Her tumultuous production style and artistic practice revolving around gender roles and Latin American experience combined with a reputation for high-energy live shows makes for one of the most promising acts on this year’s line-up.
For the after hours PHONO has carefully selected a handful of the best DJs to play the off-venue PHONO Club. Without compromising in any way on quality or curiosity, this side of the programme will aim straight for the dance floor with names such as Berlin-based Cosmin TRG and UK’s own Mickey Pearce. We are also thrilled to add the DJ Lag who will showcase the South African Gqom sound that he’s been integral in creating. DJ Lag’s superb production skills have played a big part in transforming a sub-genre of house that began as soundtracks to taxi trips around Durban – and has become an enviably innovative part of the global scene.
