One of the most significant audio-visual Festivals in South-eastern Europe is taking place in Zagreb, from November 6th until December 9th at multiple locations.
12th edition of Illectricity Festival brings the music program that each year raises the bar for quality of festivals content, and offers a variety of workshops and audio-visual projects.
The opening of the Festival took place this Sunday, November 6th, with Autechre’s amazing live performance in complete darkness, alongside with legendary Russell Haswell and DJ Andy Maddocks.
The next Illectricity live event takes place on Thursday, November 24th in KSET, Zagreb with Foil, Croatian DJ i producer with distinct raw and rhythmic techno sound influenced by wide range of music, from DnB to synthwav; and British based artist Guy Andrews with his live performance of new musical direction combining aggressive distortions and tender percussions. His first release was published by famous Hemlock label, and he has been producing ambiental music under several artist aliases for many years. His amazing talent was recognised by artists like Massive Attack, Marry Anne Hobbs, Scuba, Untold, Hotflush, Pennyroyal and many others.
Illectricity’s main night, Decemenber 9th in Bogaloo, Zagreb will present us with amazing performances of Luke Vibert (UK), SYNKRO live (UK), Gary Gritness live (FR), Ivna Ji live (CRO), Illectricity Nucomer & CFSN DJs
Luke Vibert has performed under many names, but his most known pseudonyms are Plug and Wagon Christ. We could easily say there is no genre in which he hasn’t dipped tis toes in, from hip hop and electronic music production to punk band. His releases are published by Planet Mu and Ninja Tune, and his collabs and remixes include names such as Aphex Twinom, Nine Inch Nails, Squarepusher and Tortoise.
Synkro’s outbreak to the scene occurred at the end of 2000s with dubstep and since then he has shown his talent in producing heavy bass sound after which he touches the sounds of atmospheric DnB, deep house and IDM. His latest release from Apollo label is his album “Changes”.
Gary Gritness aka Slikk Tim will treat us with his electro funk sound with a major influence of Detroit, Oakland and Atlanta.
Ivna Ji, or Ivna Yuri, is Croatian DJ and producer, who started her musical path in collaboration with club nights Le’tronik and Sicko Disko, and now she creates her own programmes – Revolver and Divine Divine. She publishes with Adriatiko Recordings with whom she’s about to release her new EP, and by the end of 2016. we will witness her fist record “The Glowing” see the light of the day, published from London’s’ Brokntoys.
The night will be enriched by the organisers themselves, CFSN DJs, and the opening of the night will be a set of the winner of Nucomers competition.
