MASAFAT FESTIVAL: MUMDANCE
Co-produced across the UK and the Arab world, Masåfåt debuted in London, Cairo and Beirut last year. The festival returns this September, full of insightful panels, workshops, and lucky for us, intimate gigs performed by innovative artists at London's ICA.
Producer and Rinse DJ Mumdance has become one of the UK’s emerging music-makers, bolstered by the collaboration between himself and rising grime star Novelist via XL. Working with his sonic sparring partner Logos, and Berlin DJ Shapednoise to form The Sprawl, the trio carve industrial grit from electronic music.
Also billed are Deena Abdelwahed, whose futuristic Arab music blends machine-like production with traditional samples and Karen Gwyer, whose experimental ambience has founds its niche on Radar Radio.
Their off-kilter electronics come to ICA on September 2nd.
Presented by 33 33 & ICA.
This is an 18+ event.
