Julia Reidy makes music for processed and acoustic instruments (mostly guitars). Their recent recorded work—brace, brace (Slip 2019,) In Real Life (Black Truffle 2019), and Vanish (Editions Mego 2020)—can be described as a series of non-traditional song forms which combine unstable harmonic territories, rhythmic elasticity and abstract narrative over stretched, episodic forms. They have performed at Tectonics Festival (SCT), Send/Receive Festival (CA), Mona Foma (AUS), Berlin Jazz Festival (DE), Angelica Festival (ITA) and Borderline Festival (GR).
aircode is a Swedish producer based in London whose production is linked by tone rather than genre. Though, heavy dub-rhythm and careful use of space are reoccurring themes mixed with vocals, short occurrences of piano, halfway-club drum patterns and constantly changing dynamics. Following her debut release on TT (fka Tobago Tracks) we have seen releases on labels such as Alien Jams, Cafe Oto’s Takuroku and Nostro Hood System.
