Swack (CA)

Since debuting their DJ+live set at Piknic Électronik in 2011, the synergistic tag team of Stefny Winter and Claire Kenway (known together as Swack) has put Montréalers under a spell of minimal techno grooves and warm, atmospheric melodies. Kenway’s singularly quirky sonic output stems from her upbringing at the hands of a violinist and a mad scientist. Montréal transplant Winter has been doling out fortifying jolts of jungle, house, Detroit and minimal techno since the mid-‘90s, and she also launched the non-profit record label, Goodnight Moon Recordings in 2013. As Swack, Kenway and Winter embarked on a project that would meld their disparate backgrounds and embody a spirit of improvisation using modest stacks of gear and machine-assisted grooves. After making her MUTEK debut last year, Winter returns to EM15 with Kenway for a rhythmically charged, sonically dense intervention in the Savoy.
