Caribou, SBTRKT, and More Announced for Italy's Club To Club Festival
- Words: Jay Donaldson
Italy's long-running electronic music festival Alfa MiTo Club To Club, based out of Turin, has disclosed the first batch of names for its 14th edition this coming fall. Among those included in the "avant-pop" roster are Canadian producer Caribou, SBTRKT, and Apparat, while Marcel Dettmann and Ben Frost are set to deliver doses of heavier, darker-toned techno and sound design. The neon-global club sounds of Future Brown and Fatima Al Qadiri are also scheduled to have a showing, as are British outfit Jungle and Chet Faker. In the bassier camp are Fade to Mind affiliate Kelela, Evian Christ, and Millie & Andrea, the duo of Miles Whittaker (of Demdike Stare) and Andy Stott, while R&B-influenced vocalist Jessy Lanza and melodic techno newcomer Recondite round out the announcement.
This year's festival, under the theme "The Trojan Horse," adds an extra day of programming and new locations onto past events, and runs from November 5–9 in parallel with the city's Contemporary Art Week. All new elements will be announced in the forthcoming weeks, and XLR8R's review of last year's edition can be revisited here.
