The festival centerpiece, NOCTURNE 4 on Saturday, May 31st at 10 pm, is an all-night two-room event presented at Metropolis that features several of the most notable names in electronic music today. The line-up in the main room gets underway with Toronto tech-house producer Noah Pred, followed by Montreal’s own Mossa and the French techno-pop duo Nôze, before taking a turn toward the deep electro-fused techno of France’s Chloé*. Longtime fans of Cologne’s Kompakt label will be treated to a Canadian premiere of highly coveted act The Field**, appearing on the Metropolis stage with a live trio that is at once linear and sublime. In the Savoy Lounge, a night of eclectic leftfield producers will fill the room with strange and otherworldly sounds via a line-up that threatens to overshadow the main room! Kode 9** appears in versatile experimental form for a brooding live set, followed by none of other than the surf fusion of Quiet Village***, featuring Radio Slave’s Matt Edwards and Joel Martin. New York’s DJ Olive* displays the more experimental reaches of abstract beats, before Montreal’s own Deadbeat sets the room aflame with his 21st century dub.
