Gabber Modus Operandi (ID)
One of the contractual obligations when scheduling your attendance to a GMO ceremony is to enter in trance should the session require you to do so. The fact is that Gabber Modus Operandi always requires you to. Their thing is a rave with the smell of incense and the colour of Indonesian folklore ritual, but above 200 BPM (the fragments at 180 BPM in his case are a ballad). Grinding up traditional elements from the musical culture of Bali together with footwork and happy hardcore: is the kamikaze method behind the project by DJ Kasimyn and singer Icam Harem. HOXXXYA, their latest record on the label SVBKVLT, is a state of consciousness altered by a torrent of one thousand and one inputs and, at the same time, an extreme cardiac massage. It drives you crazy and revives you
Pisitakun is from Bangkok, Thailand. He started making visual arts and music in 2014 and is interested in music in different media environments. He uses a variety of inspirations in his songs, such as historical events, synthetic sounds, and musical instruments. In 2016, the album “Black Country” began to be prepared. In this album, Pisitakun is talking about a country full of dialogues between dark voices.
As Thai history currently unfolds under martial law following the military coup d’état on 22 May 2014 – the thirteenth since the end of the absolute monarchy in 1932 – Pisitakun’s practice represents a decisive break from many of his Thai peers: he questions fundamental and increasingly universal values without merely decrying the fact of corruption or offering neat palliatives.
