Nkisi, Swan Meat, Croww, Hesska
Nkisi, SWAN MEAT and Croww will be joining us for the next Club CITS (now at Joshua Brooks / Versions!)
Nkisi (DJ) ~
As co-founder of NON Worldwide, whose raison d’etre is described as “a collective of African artists and of the diaspora, using sound as their primary media, to articulate the visible and invisible structures that create binaries in society, and in turn distribute power”, Nkisi’s ethos and music is imbued with a certain punk sensibility along with a political push back against conformity. Her DJ sets draw from a wide range of influenced forming a fast paced and exhilarating experience in the dance. Her production reflects deeply in these influences also and provide a sound that is equally relentless and evocative.
SWAN MEAT (DJ) ~
Reba Fay, alias Swan Meat, is a poet, audio engineer, and composer from Washington, D.C. Informed by her experience with chronic illness & body dysmorphia, her work pairs "a carnivalesque assemblage of spoken word pieces" with jarring, arrhythmic industrial and ambient compositions, and is built from a library of memories teeming with sonic detritus: vestigial feeding tube, bytes of heart monitor.
Croww (DJ) -
Working around the periphery of music of the vantablack variety, Croww is a Manchester based artist pecking at the corpuses of black metal, flashcore and DnB and nesting new mutations of hypermodern dance music. His debut release 'Prosthetics' was out earlier in the summer on The Death Of Rave label. Also a resident at Manchester’s Fiktion (fka Faktion) raves, Croww’s rare dj sets stretch across the board - from Grindcore to Crunk.
