GAYANCE leads the ship, going through rhythms of African, Haitian and Brazilian traditional drums. She will bring you towards the disjointed universe of Arca, KenLo Craqnuques, Eludem, and many other electronic music producers. She will end with style, Australian Future-Soul style.

Tactical turntablist and renegade theorist tobias c. van Veen presents a sonic journey through the Afrofuturist archives, travelling the spaceways from Sun Ra’s outerspace jazz to the robotic rhythms of Detroit techno, with stopovers in the interstellar eddies of galactic hip-hop, Chicago acid house, and cosmic funk.
