Gabber Modus Operandi
Ican Haram and Kasimin are two represents of Denpasar’s artistic scene in Indonesia, they operate under the moniker Gabber Modus Operandi, and have been active for a few years now. Last year they released a remaster of their first opus Puxximaxx (which could have been the original title of their formation).
People who have been to a Gabber Modus Operandi show would agree there is something deeply ritualistic about Gabber Modus Operandi’s performance. Whether it be on the stage of Kampala’s Nyege Nyege Festival, in the mythic building of Berghain in Berlin or in their very own Ravepasar festival in Denpasar, Bali, the Gabber Modus Operandi duo knows how to electrify a crowd.

Meuko! Meuko! has been a staple of Taipei’s underground scene for years. She’s a close collaborator of visual artist Non Eye and Taipei Based Visual & Installation group ‘Naxs corp.”.
In her work Meuko! Meuko! developed a visual universe showcasing both traditional and modern architecture of Taiwan’s cityscape. With her audiovisual performances, she’s able to capture the emotions triggered by this visual environment, by transporting this audience in an immersive experience.
Meuko! Meuko! works also dips heavily into video game references and internet culture (think of MMO’s and virtual avatars), and has been presented at events like Unsound Festival, Rewire Festival and the online Wrong Biennale. In this exchange, we dive back into the creation of her latest EPs, and the production of Invisible General, a project presented at Nuits sonores.
Nite Fleit first appointment with a deejay deck came in 2015. In 2016 came producing, which was introduced to the Australian-born artist through a friends’ M8-20 and a TR8. Fast forward a few years, Fleit moves to the UK where she’s currently based, in the meantime she added a few entries to her catalog, on imprints such as Planet Euphorique, Steel City Dance Discs and Return To Disorder, Helena Hauff’s label, whom invited Fleit to perform on her curated night in the latest edition of Nuits sonores in Lyon.
Listen to the full discussion on Soundcloud to hear more about Nite Fleit, from deejaying in bush doofs, to her latest project Day Fleit – Nite Fleit, a split album oscillating between day and night with gremlin-like agility.
