The Polish festival's initial lineup also features Rustie, Sepalcure, L-Vis 1990 and Gang Gang Dance.
Tauron Nowa Muzyka Festival began in 2006 with the goal of introducing Polish audiences to artists on the vanguard of jazz and electronic music. Since then it's grown into an internationally facing electronic festival, but has stuck to its mission of highlighting new ideas in music. Only a handful of names have been announced so far for this year's festival, with Hotflush boss Scuba topping the bill. He's far from the only bass artist confirmed: Sepalcure, Rustie and Night Slugs co-founder L-Vis 1990 are locked down as well. Warp Records is represented by left-field artist Chris Clark and recent signee Kwes. Brooklyn collective Gang Gang Dance add a psychedelic touch to the lineup.
The festival will host a series of pre-parties this month in Katowice, the first of which is happening tonight at Fabryka Trzciny, with Ninja Tune artist Bonobo headlining. The Cinematic Orchestra will play at the next one on February 19th at the Szyb Gallery. Later that night, Brainfeeder artist Kutmah will make his Polish debut at a free after party at Jazzclub Hipoza.
