Swedish furniture and homeware giant IKEA is throwing a 24-hour virtual festival on 16th September 2021.
ZULI will release his new EP ‘All Caps’ via Lee Gamble’s UIQ this month.
Recorded in the months after his equipment was stolen, along with the year’s worth of new music stored on it, the EP is the sound of creativity erupting from frustration, and the Egyptian artist wastes no time in lighting the cathartic fuse. With six cuts spanning frenzied and experimental hardcore jungle, fracious rhythms and sizzling melodies, it marks some of ZULI’s strongest work to date.
ZULI and Rama, electronic artists and DJs from Cairo, Egypt, have launched a new platform, irsh, aimed at promoting the local scene.
Having originally launched in January as a live video series, irsh was halted due to coronavirus. Now, the label/platform will release its debut compilation, ‘did you mean: irish’, this month. The 10-track collection will be released on 25th September, and features a series of experimental club cuts from local artists and friends.
A new club is opening in Cologne's Stadtgarten complex, Jaki.
Housed in the basement of what's regarded as the German city's focal point for jazz and contemporary sounds, it will occupy the same space as now-defunct Studio672, albeit a complete redesign has taken place.
The venue's name is a nod to Jaki Liebezeit, the celebrated drummer and member of seminal experimental rock outfit Can, widely considered one of the most influential bands the country has ever produced.
