MAFUCAGE >< Forte Tete /F Paris-based frenetic collective (bass/drum machine, noisy fx guitar), scrambling rigid boundaries between electro/accoustic/dub/beat/techno/experimental music.

FATA PADURE >< Fire Act /PL Waves of illumination, sparks and industrial drones in ritual performance of Wroclav unit, akin to Job Karma.
KAFFE MATTHEWS >< The last of violin /UK One of the most active artists on the new electronic music scene with surprising approach to exploiting digital gadgets and live performance transgressing any boundary between sound and image. Since 1996 regularly performing around the world and playing in the dark through multiple speakers, she samples, improvises with, and processes the sounds of the performance venue via microphones, computer and a small theremin, making beautifully clear, minimal works, playing architecturally with lines, bending, breaking and patterning them. First performance in CZ! www.annetteworks.com
COBRA KILLER >< Heavy Rotation /D Fabled extravagent duo comes back with wild punk-porn-digital-hardcore, vociferous vocals, disco beats and dissolute prostitute bar atmosphere. These Berlin´s Vivas, swirling in explosive tradition of post-industrial-pop-art culture, are long-term stars of Digital Hardcore recordings etc. The Wildest Gina V. D`Orio and the Kwikest Annika Trost bring yelling vocals and rotating beats! Uncontrolled and beautiful - Vagary upon! Hysteria all over! www.cobra-killer.org
IRINA ANDREEVA >< Who has been looking here /Rus New innovated solo performance of Russian dancer and performer from Teatr Novogo Fronta, a true living legend of the experimental physical theatre, celebrating 10 years anniversary this years. Exploration of the relationship between actor's body and the space of the event. Bitter grotesque on the edge of dance, parody, divided dance as butoh of TV clichés. www.tnf.cz
NEOTROPIC >< La Prochaine Fois /UK It´s time to welcome Renaissance woman of modern electronica, Riz Maslen, constantly deconstructing and redefining the sound of music. Multi-faceted experiments for 10 years alloy like nothing else - hip hop and jazz, with freakout noise, snatches of techno and jungle against dissonantly progressive classic arragements! Guaranting to provoke response and presented mostly by Ntone label, Riz has toured extensively in US ad Europe and made herself a name as one of the UK´s finest underground producers. Boosting with psychotic sonics and undulating ambient sent through the freak-wency prewash. First time n CZ! www.neotropic.net
