Smith n Hack (DE)
This Berlin duo is composed of Errorsmith (who we also have the pleasure of presenting solo within the framework of the Experience 3 program) and Soundhack, who also records under the alias of Soundstream. With many records to their credit, the two artists are established in a genre outside the norm. Implementing primary mechanisms which lend dynamism to dance music, they've greatly stripped down the elements, using this base for improvising from loops manipulated in real-time. The result: purified funk, incessant and prolonged machine-driven rhythms, layered with textures in perpetual dynamic variation. Destabilizing, energetic and enigmatic in its simplicity.
