NMC’s popular late-night series returns with a headlining performance by Los Angeles beatmaker Daedelus, the producer with over two dozen releases on a variety of labels (Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint, Ninja Tune, etc.), and collaborations with musicians in many worlds: electronic, jazz, hip hop, indie (Kelela, Kneebody, MF DOOM, etc.). Known as a founding figure of the LA "Beat Scene," each of his shows are distinct, employing dynamic controllers that allow on-the-fly improvisations and ingenious a/v from the robotic Archimedes to the twirling Panoptes.
Joining him are Montreal multi-instrumentalist and producer extraordinaire Ouri, eclectic house and disco selector Dane MacDonald, Toronto-based experimental electronic performer KOREA TOWN ACID, Nick Middleton Music (The Funk Hunters, Westwood Recordings) performing a DJ set as The Outlier, as well as Calgary's own DJ SONIDEF and DJ BLKFT.
The following DJs will also be guiding the night's silent disco:
- Lady K vs. SwaggaCats
- TAF vs. Heart 2 Heart
- Aaron All Day vs. F.B.G. of Icarus Sound
- Pallares vs. Donna Dada
In collaboration with AEMCON, and part of the NMC: ON program, visitors can expect an immersive experience including pop-up bars, a silent disco, interactive installations, and music experiments.
