The Canadian electronic music festival will begin the countdown to its 10th anniversary with a tour in April.
Guillaume & The Coutu Dumonts, The Mole, Pier Bucci and more will be among the artists hitting various cities in Canada throughout April. The tour will begin in Montreal at a venue that has held Mutek events in the past, Cœur des Sciences. From there, Toronto, Ottawa, Edmonton and Vancouver are all on the table with each city getting the talents of The Mole's techno soul and oftentimes much more than that. (Check your local listings below for details.)
In between those dates, the tour will swing down into the States for a mega-Mutek showcase, which will feature Guillaume, a Modern Love contingent (consisting of Claro Intelecto, Andy Stott and MLZ) and, if that wasn't enough to whet your appetite, dubstepper Pangaea from Hessle Audio—RA's label of the month in February—will also be taking to the decks. Oh. And premiere ambient producer Ezekiel Honig will also be playing live. It's almost like RA's 2008 year-end poll come to life in one venue.
As for Mutek proper, we're pleased to also be able to announce that come Monday, March 16th, we'll have an exclusive announcement about the festival's initial line-up. Get ready. It's something special.
