MUTEK Goes on Tour!

 

MUTEK is gearing up to celebrate ten years of musical discovery, and to mark the occasion, we wanted to give something back to all the people who've helped us grow into the internationally acclaimed event that we’ve become.  And so, we’re going out on the road with the MUTEK_10 North American tour, from April 8th to the 18th, taking the MUTEK experience out of Montreal and bringing it to the front doors of music fans all across the continent!

Over the years, the MUTEK festival has fostered the careers of innumerable Canadian electronic artists and, in partnership with Exclaim! Magazine and Resident Advisor, we’re bringing some of those names on the road with us.  Victoria’s The Mole (Wagon Repair) and Montreal’s Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts (Musique Risquée, Oslo) will helm the first leg of the tour (Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa) with the live sets that have wowed crowds all around the world.  Chilean producer Pier Bucci (Crosstown Rebels), who has performed many times over the years at MUTEK events in Mexico, Chile, and Argentina, will join the Canadians for stops in Toronto and Montreal.  Montreal's ambassador of futuristic hip hop, Ghislain Poirier, joins the bill in Toronto

Once the tour dips down across the border to Brooklyn’s Studio B, the industrial-strength dub-techno of the Modern Love crew – including none other than Claro Intelecto, Andy Stott, and MLZ – will join Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts, the garage-fuelled dubstep of Pangaea (Hessle Audio), and the bristling deep-listening electronics of Ezekiel Honig (Anticipate) for a what is sure to be one of the most talked about showcases to hit New York City this year. Meanwhile, The Mole will finish off the last leg of the tour across Western Canada (Edmonton, Vancouver) with a number of local artists from each city, including Inkwell, Andy Clockwork, and members of Shout Out Out Out Out.

At tour stops along the east coast, audiences will be able to purchase MUTEK festival passports at each showcase.  Initial acts for the Montreal festival will be announced on March 16th.
