Hide are an electronic duo based in Chicago. Together since 2014, the pair create sample based compositions using a combination of self sourced field recordingsandvarious pop culture/media.
Hide’s second full length album ”Hell is Here” on Dais is dated for release late summer 2019.
The band’s trademark elements, complex drum programming, stomach churning sub bass, aggressive expressive vocals, remain intact while the listener is met with something a lot less illusory and a lot more direct.
Last year the band toured Europe, Russia and UK in addition to multiple North American runs. Known for their energetic live performances, the duo also work as interdisciplinary artists together, creating films and visual art installations as well.
MUERAN HUMANOS (ARG)
Mueran Humanos consists of Carmen Burgess (vocals, drum machine, moog synth, samplers) and Tomas Nochteff (vocals, bass, MPC, tapes) who together make propulsive, unfurling Spanish language songs, using avant-garde methods with a punk attitude. Bothe were born in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
For the uninitiated, MUERAN HUMANOS can be tough to explain. You could list their influences and call them “a psychedelic-krautrock-post punk electronics duo who manage to capture the rich cultural history and excitement of their adopted home of Berlin and infuse it with a sophistcated South American chic imported from their native Buenos Ares”, but that would be doing them an injustice. The reality is that there isn’t anything to explain. The reality is that there isn’t anything to explain. They don’t need a pretentious description, once you listen to them, it just makes sense! At their core, these are simple solid electronics foundation solified by driving bass lines and textural keyboard parts.
They played big festivals like Primavera Sounds, Wroclaw Industrial Festival and Wave Ghotik Treffen and legendary venues like Berghain, SO36 and did a session with Boiler Room. Mueran Humanos were handpicked by The Horrors to support them through their European tour.
