Street culture collides with techno 2.0 micro-scenes in Dis Fig's heady dancefloor anarchy, spinning darkly atmospheric backdrops into anthemic lyrics with unsettling beats and cerebral holy moments.
Dis Fig rose up as a member of New York label and collective Purple Tape Pedigree (PTP), run by Geng and other artists as an incubator for Jersey club, grime, techno, baile, ballroom, rap and R&B mutations. After moving to Berlin in 2014, Dis Fig joined Berlin's Trade party series, home to Lotic, Soda Plains, Why Be, KABLAM and Mechatok – the city is also where she paired up with with fellow Brooklynite producer Hunni'd Jaws to become fearless outsider duo Call Dibs, co-hosting an experimental radio show dedicated to “hyperspace textures of club-construction bass music.” Her latest mix, for music site The Astral Plane, is a dense recipe of dark and light textures, rap and R&B vocals in an experimental club music abyss.
In the past year, she's played numerous club and festival shows in Europe, China and NYC, two Boiler Room sets – at NYC's PTP party and at fashion event Bread & Butter in Berlin – and opened Berghain's new Säule floor. Dis Fig comes to MUTEK to perform alongside fellow urban genre-disruptors on as part of the CTM-curated outdoor stage.
