For Sunday afternoon, starting at 2 pm, MUTEK//PIKNIC 2 lets loose a 9-hour music marathon that will run up until 11pm. The stage features a five-pack of international techno to rival the United Nations, a line-up that makes a strong case for the new shape of a globalized techno that incorporates the richness of indigenous rhythms and sounds into a tight percussive minimalism. Beginning with a Vakant imprint double-bill featuring Turkey’s up-and-coming Onur Özer** and his lively brand of techno, the afternoon then veers toward the new school of German producers with the Mathias Kaden*. Argentina’s Ernesto Ferreyra will then take to the stage for a high-quality live set of minimal techno. As the stars begin to shine in the night sky, Onur Özer and Mathias Kaden** will return for a tag-team encore that will leave audiences wishing for one more summer night.
