The iconic Boiler House will play host to rising industrial techno star NSDOS plus acclaimed producer Manaré from Rinse France on Friday night. We Are Robots presents a diverse roster of ground breaking electronic talent throughout the festival at Old Truman Brewery, London.
NSDOS After studying dance, Kirikoo Des aka NSDOS, felt the need to create his own sound in order to explore movement. This is how he started imagining a whole new sonic order, an alternative approach to music – through abstraction.
NSDOS can't restrain himself to existing technological tools and softwares, he prefers creating his own mediums; futurist instruments made of old audio converters, Gameboy emulators, pieces of metal dismantled and weld together giving form to surreal machines. Surrounded by his hybrid tools, NSDOS unravels the rectilinear anatomy of techno music. Textures are exploded, sounds mutilated, and brought back to their essence.
MANARE After quickly establishing himself as one of the go-to DJs of underground club music in Paris, he was put in contact with the ClekClekBoom crew around 2009 through his long-time friend and fellow label artist Valentino Mora (formerly French Fries). However it wasn't until 2012 that he dropped his critically acclaimed debut EP "Quartz / Down to Dis".
For simplicity's sake you might describe Manaré's sound as a hybrid of early house and dusty techno, full of eerie layers, groovy drum patterns and organic percussions coated in low frequencies.
Believing time shouldn't be a factor when maturing a sound of his own, Manaré took several years crafting his art, pursuing a journey only begun with a new EP coming out in Autumn 2017.
d'Voxx is a live electronic music project courtesy of established producers Paul Borg and Nino Auricchio. Using only modular synthesizers they create music that fuses sweeping soundscapes and progressive beats with strong melodies and harmonies. No laptops, no tablets, just pure voltage control.
