Korea Town Acid (KR/CA)Using an experimental and purely improvised approach to samplers and synths, Korea Town Acid’s expansive and cerebral rhythms sit at the juncture of dubby house, free-jazzy techno, and funky ambient territories. Hypnotic compositions are dextrously assembled as skittering, slowly billowing technicolor synth jolts. Building on the momentum of childhood piano lessons and teenage stints as a keyboardist in various bands, Korean-born, Toronto-based producer, musician, and DJ Jessica Cho took a liking to improvisation through jazz and hip-hop. Her early career cuts of abstracted house were indebted to Korean folk, experimental hip-hop, and even R&B.
Ouri (FR/QC)Of French and afro-caribbean descent, Ouri is a Montréal-based electronic producer, DJ and multi-instrumentalist. Her training in piano, harp and cello are what primarily influence her shape-shifting relationships with melody and bass. The cycle of birth, death and constant rebirth sends her transcending through the creation of her first album, Frame of a Fauna, as she explores what lies inside the lining of the big dharma wheel: trauma, control and vulnerability.
San Farafina (CA) Colliding up-tempo club beats with the ethos of modern afro sounds, San Farafina - a key member and resident DJ of the globally-based Moonshine collective - curates an ethereal fusion that draws inspiration from her diasporic roots and an eclectic upbringing. She fuses the unrefined nature of garage, the erratic percussion of batida and the menacing synths of gqom to create a story that can only be told through sound.
