Rokolectiv Festival 2018
Red Bull Music x Rokolectiv Festival present: Eomac / Tommy Four Seven / Machine Woman / Giant Swan/ Admina
Ian McDonnell aka Eomac, best known as 1/2 of Dublin duo Lakker, presents a live set that draws, just like his last album, from obscure Middle Eastern music, digging deep into a dark mysticism for the dancefloor.
A leading name in today’s new techno scene, British-born Tommy Four Seven brings in one of his trademark DJ sets of deep engaging atmospheres, while St. Petersburg’s native Machine Woman “waltzes the line between techno and avant-garde”.
Across a table of machines and pedals, incorporating abused guitar and free vocal manipulation, Bristol based Giant Swan feature their cross-breed of hypnotic bass, industrial percussion, and disorientating energy delivered with telepathic intricacy in a live set that is never the same.
Hailing from the local young scene, Admina, the DJ, producer, and visual artist strongly related to Bucharest’s Queer Night parties and to the female identified platform Corp., rounds up the night.
Rokolectiv Festival takes place yearly in various venues across the city, and is a singular voice on Romania’s scene since 2006. This year’s program features, as usual, a carefully selected pool of artists whose heterogeneous practices range from noisy techno to meditations on digital enlightenment, with club sets, videos, performances and discourse. The rest of the lineup includes the likes of Colin Self, Nene H., Elysia Crampton, Errosmith, December, CEM & more.
Select performances will be recorded and broadcast on Red Bull Radio, one of the largest resources for discovering new music on the web.
