DISK Welcomes mobilegirl
We're excited to have mobilegirl join DISK Agency. mobilegirl first caught the scene's attention with her leftfield r&b edits of iconic divas J.Lo and TLC. Like many of her friends at Staycore, she joined the Stockholm label casually. Following several European dates including a much-hyped performance during this year's Unsound Festival, she continues with a busy schedule including a December Asia tour.
Thomas Ankersmit to premiere new work at CTM Festival
Devoted to music at its most intrusive and gargantuan, Thomas Ankersmit will premiere his new multi-layered composition, "Infra," in Berghain on 2.2.2017 during CTM 2017 festival. The work explores the artistic, musical, and perceptual potential of infrasound, triggering strong emotional reactions from unease and angst to awe and even spiritual catharsis. Ankersmit continues to be busy with several parallel projects at the forefront of exploring sonic perception.
Now booking for winter/spring 2017.
DISK Welcomes Rabit
We hare happy to welcome Rabit to our roster, with avails for Halcyon Veil showcases in May and solo shows.
Starting his career in 2012 Burton’s music has always been deeply informed by an outward-looking taste. After releasing several EP’s, splits and singles it was his 2015 debut album, Communion, released on NYC’s Tri Angle Records, which garnered him broad attention. Inspired by the talent emerging around him, Rabit also launched his own Halcyon Veil label with a collaborative release with NON’s Chino Amobi as well as providing a official remix for Björk’s Vulnicura LP.
Special Project Available: 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 is now available for shows worldwide.
