MUTEKLIVE196 - Canhota
Friday August 24, 2018 – Société des arts technologiques [SAT] - Espace SAT
Mastered by Pheek
Who: Montréal-based producer and DJ Sophie MacArthur
Style: Hardcore bedroom baile funk; reckless and rambunctious experimental ritmos; buffet-style bundle of high-powered electronics
More: Canhota enjoys testing the waters of new material by dropping fragments of works-in-progress into her emotive live sets
With her hiccupping sense of rhythm but also a knack for collaging disparate musical transgressions into a high-powered and emotive soundtrack of bloops, thwacks and thumps—pronounced “ca‧ño‧ta” and meaning left-landed in Portuguese—this divergent thinker incorporates dembow, noise, hardcore, tarraxo, industrial and baile funk into her punchy beatmaker’s brew.
