[Prado] squirms between infections, cruelty, and the abyss.” – Tiny Mix Tapes

Nzʉmbe

For his Nzʉmbe project, Miguel Prado pens unusual, dramatic and very often romantic songs that delve into feelings of disenchantment, affection and humiliation. Built upon a musical bed of modular electronics and instrumental fragments, his recordings push forward the sound of the disembodied voice, laid bare in isolation, vulnerability and exposure. Miguel Prado is the story of a person’s life told from his birth to his death, detailing his deeds achieved and failures, and everything of significant interest to the same. His biography (Greek βίος, bios, “life” and γρᾶφειν, grāfein, “write”) usually takes the form of a expository story frequently narrated in the third person of the life of a real person from birth to death or to the present. In its most complete form, Miguel Prado also explains his actions according to the social, cultural and political context of the time attempting to reconstruct documentarily, his thoughts and figure. Miguel Prado can be recorded in the form of audio, visual or writing.

Flora Yin-Wong

London-born producer, writer and DJ, Flora Yin-Wong (aka ||FLORA) works with field recordings, dissonance, and influences from contemporary club culture. Her debut EP 'City God', a tape release on New York’s PTP, was inspired by Daoist traditions in regards to tutelary deities and the afterlife, using distorted sounds from temples, to traditional Cantonese/further Eastern influences. 

She has since released on PAN's ‘mono no aware’ double LP which she helped conceptualise, with the track 'Lugere'. Besides remixes for the likes of Eaves, Scintii, Yungve, and Halcyon Veil's Celyn June, she also contributed to Ziùr's Co-Op release alongside the likes of M.E.S.H. and GIL, and Lara Rix-Martin's Objects Ltd imprint. Most recently out on Caridad Records alongside Amalia Ulman, Lolina (Inga Copeland), and IVVVO, was a composition piece made up of seven layers of a violin she played, recorded and processed. Currently she is working on a debut full-length as well as new remixes for Holodisc and Milan's Haunter Records.

Besides previously DJing at the likes of Berghain, and Bloc for PAN’s showcases, to across the UK, Antwerp, Copenhagen, Bratislava, Lausanne, New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Seoul, Beijing and Sydney, she has curated shows at Cafe OTO and also regularly guests on shows on NTS Live, Know Wave, Radar, and BCR and Boiler Room earlier this year.

Ep/64

Ep/64 is a subtle wild improvisation combo, with variable geometry, formed by raw vocalist Dali de Saint Paul. Most of the time playing in trio, musicians dive freely into the interactions between his elements thus steering the energy of the music.
