Eszaid (FR; Collapsing Market, Meandyou)
Paris-based producer and DJ Louis Vial creates wild, bass-heavy music under his moniker Eszaid. Besides his own productions, which all are informed by dub music, he also publishes music from internationally acknowledged artists on his label Collapsing Market.
Magda Drozd (CH; Präsens Editionen)
Zurich-based artist Magda Drozd is interested in a non-rational perception of the world and speculative narratives, which she expresses in the form of sound and performance. In December 2019, she released her first LP Songs for Plants featuring eleven tracks ranging from ambient, experimental electronics, and off-pop to dub techno on Präsens Editionen.
Delmore FX (CH/DE; Das Andere Selbst)
Ticino-born, Berlin-based Elia Buletti applies free improvisation in his solo project Delmore FX to maneuver through his cubist sounds. Passing by eerie inlets and wild vortices every once in a while, the artist constantly reworks his stream of sounds and recordings, which lead to unforseen rearrangements.
