DISK Welcomes Perera Elsewhere

After fronting the mongrel avant-pop band Jahcoozi in the 90s and establishing a grime foothold in her home base of Berlin, Perera Elsewhere jumped into solo work since 2013. Her debut album saw her collaborate with Gonja Sufi, and was picked up by Schlomo and Hype Williams who contributed remixes. Her second album, titled All Of This, will be released in June 2017.

DISK Welcomes Ziúr

Since catching everyone's attention with the razor-sharp contribution on Peaches' remix album in 2016, Ziúr has been busy playeding across Europe with Kablam, Amnesia Scanner, Patten and DJ PayPal, putting out adventurous mixes for NYC’s Discwoman collective and Resident Advisor, co-running Berlin's BOO HOO party, all while prepping her debut EP, slated for release on Planet Mu & Objects Ltd in October 2017.

DISK Welcomes Taso

Taso has been a member of the infamous Teklife crew since 2012 as a multi-instrumentalist, DJ, producer and engineer. With collab credits on most of Teklife king (RIP) DJ Rashad’s discography, Taso was integral in the development of the original, worldwide footwork sound and continues to innovate its evolution.

Nadah El Shazly Joins DISK Roster

Currently preparing the release of her debut album, Egyptian singer and composer Nadah El Shazly recently became resident composer at Stockholm’s Elektronmusikstudion (EMS) and was featured within local and international festivals including Norbergfestival and Clandestino Festival in Sweden and Masafat at London’s Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA).

Now booking for June 2017.

Appearing at The Barbican: Still Be Here with Hatsune Miku

A giant video triptych sets the stage for virtual pop idol Hatsune Miku, who appears center stage as a 3D hologram projected onto an Dilat-film screen. The stunning meld of hyperreal animation, subtle dance performance, documentary-like interludes, and original score and live sound processing by critically-acclaimed producer Laurel Halo is topped by Miku’s ethereal, unfaltering voice. This unique performance / installation will be performed on 26 February at The Barbican, and is available for other shows worldwide.
