Come and hear one of Denmarks finest producers talk about some of his musical influences and his own productions on the RBMA couch. There will also be info about applying to the Academy in New York this year and a chance to ask some questions directly.
"Actress's dubstep aesthetics mingle with rave breaks and micro-house attitude to conjure up a gleefully indefinable journey through one of the more tangential side roads veering off from today’s electronic music. The artist is certainly no stranger to challenging conventions. As label manager for London-based label Werk Discs, he’s played a pivotal part in bringing to light critically acclaimed albums by Zomby and Lukid. Actress’ own debut album, the tragically under-rated “Hazyville”, is equally bold and engaging, but apart from three more singles across a seven-year stretch, including this year’s “Paint, Straw, and Bubbles” on the mighty Honest Jon’s label, Actress has most flown under the radar. This year, MUTEK is betting his Montreal performance will change all that, and bring Actress’s abundant talents to the wider audiences his music so obviously deserves."

"You might have heard of the Danish label TEAL recordings – and if this is the case, you might also have heard of Beastie Respond. Maybe you have even been to the club Dunkel in Copenhagen for one of his so-called Ottoman-parties there – no matter what, there is absolutely no doubt that Beastie Respond is one of the most talented and interesting acts on the Danish drum’n'bass-inspired electronic music scene at the moment. The (killer!)track “Syncopy” on before mentioned TEAL recordings will be out in August 2011, holding a remix from Blawan, who will also play at Trailerpark Festival 2011. We have great expectations to this guy, you should too."
