L?K?OThe 6-handed turntablist himself drives a demolition-derby school bus of amplified vinyl in all of its white-knuckled glory. Keep all limbs inside the vehicle.



2UPRabid drums battle table-saw guitar and perforated vocals in all of your favorite mutilated frequencies. An impossible thermal duo of tattered precision.

Geltz!Carnivorous bass and bass-eating drums make up this duo. At home playing in freeway traffic, or greeting aliens, they may - in fact - unhinge you.

Nikka-Sen (Mitsuru Tabata + Tatsuhisa Yamamoto + Kelly Churko + Cal Lyall)

Evol (from Barcelona)

EvolDoes something smell like burning styrofoam? Yes, the switchboard operator may have sent your earplugs into your cochlea. An algorithmic leader in fractured situations where machines make the rules.



OHPIAFlying in an space-saucer of post-mathematical psychedelic graffiti, our resident visual shamans have conjured the very best hallucinogenic spells for your peepers.
