Mutek Montrealers: Akufen

Posted on May 22nd, 2009 by .

It’s no coincidence that some of the biggest shows at Mutek are being left in the capable hands of Montréal musicians. The same love and support of electronic music in this city that helped make Mutek so popular has also helped propel several local artists to international acclaim.

A perfect example of this funky symbiosis is the man known as Akufen, who returns to Mutek with some new music I can’t wait to hear…

Akufen, real name Marc Leclair, played the fest’s first edition and credits Mutek as being the real launching pad for a career that has taken him around the world and made him one of techno music’s most respected household names. His distinctive style of music is made up of cut-up music and sounds blended seamlessly together with more organic instrumentation music, the end result being dance music that can be enjoyed on or off the dancefloor.

Though he’s been busy DJ’ing and remixing, his appearance on May 31st will be his first live show in over 4 years and will be chock full of both old and new music. It promises to be one of Mutek’s real highlights. I’ll see you there…
