The outdoor event shouldn't be all shoegazing and chin-stroking, though, since Sutekh (born Seth Joshua Horvitz) has shown that he can get his groove on with the best of them. The tracks Horvitz has released on underground labels like Force Inc., Background, Cytrax/Delay, and his own Context imprint are equal parts sonic experimentation and driving techno. Even his live sets at festivals around the world shift from the deep tonal rumblings of slumbering factories to four-on-the-floor beats with funky bass burbles and glitchy sample tomfoolery.
Twine's Greg Malcolm rarely produces such dance-floor-accessible material, but his mix of experimental clicks 'n' cuts and hip-hop beats is far more stimulating than most laptop experimentalism, so we'll be sure to get there early for his opening set.
