Podcast 87: MUTEK_10 with Michel Pontbriand
- Words: Jennifer Marston
In earlier days, a MUTEK showcase commonly involved a room of pasty guys standing still while endless bleeps and blips filled the air. And while we’d never contest the importance of that particular breed of electronic music (which remains the foundation of most MUTEK events), the festival has seen a considerable amount of growth and variety over the last decade, perhaps most evident in the lineup for this year’s annual Montreal festival.
So we figured we’d celebrate the fact that Appleblim can play alongside Moderat and Ghislain Poirier will share a stage with Nortec Collective with a special MUTEK mix. Montreal-based DJ, producer, and classically trained musician Michel Pontbriand stepped up to assume the task of curating a podcast in support of the upcoming MUTEK 10th Anniversary event, set to kick off next week on May 27. The Musique Risquée signee and longtime friend of the MUTEK crew took a long, hard look at this year's roster, and his mix accordingly reflects its diversity, traversing house, techno, dubstep, downtempo, and more, all in just over an hour.
