Our 25th! The coolest artist to come out of Denmark in years and an experimental folk artist from Newcastle? The live sets of Frisk Frugt and Richard Dawson should floor everyone, but if that's not enough, there's the musical itchings of mathematician Lali Barrière and veteran soundartist Alfredo Costa Monteiro (aka Blaast), and let's not forget the 'Muito Bam Bam' tunage of DJ Multifunctionelis!

■ FRISK FRUGT (dk)
Frisk Frugt is Anders Lauge Meldgaard, a Danish multi-instrumentalist / composer with a kaleidoscope of musical inspiration at his command. Frisk Frugt emerged out of Copenhagen's influential experimental music collective yoyooyoy, where he was involved in numerous projects. On the back of these achievements, Anders delved deep into folkloric Denmark and went on to absorb the thrilling musical happenings in Mali and Burkina Faso. His most recent album "Den Europæriske Spejlbue", documents this; we can vividly imagine captain Anders, best of the class, setting sail for music’s uncharted universe with boundless curiosity: Danish folksong, European baroque, psych, avant-garde and pop music get beautifully collaged together. A one man post-digital fantasy orchestra, and one of our personal highlights of the year!
■ RICHARD DAWSON (uk)
Songs. Bloody good songs with a twist, that's what mister Dawson is about. Richard is a guitar player / songwriter from Newcastle upon Tyne, England. His repertoire is a far cry from the plague of whiny singer-songwriters infesting the planet. Only a few people outside Newcastle had a clue who Richard was some three years ago, but after a couple of great albums and many highly acclaimed live performances, he's being embraced by press and fans alike. Listen to his intense, discordant and captivating reconfiguration of English folk and guitar traditions. Chances are you'll be a fan in an instant.
■ BLAAST (Lali Barrière & Alfredo Costa Monteiro | es/pt)
The music of the duo sound/visual art veterans Lali Barrière and Alfredo Costa Monteiro promises to be a delicate electro-acoustic affair. It is roughly based on continuous, overlapping sounds that slowly evolve, eventually forming an intense, time stretching sonic mass that is rich in harmonics... the music of the duo resembling a journey out of time.
■ DJ MULTIFUNCTIONELIS (nl)
Low Point Drains bandmember who is mostly away from R'dam, business tripping in Southeast Asia. He will do some super fun “Muito Bam Bam" DJ'ing; rough but dancable Afro-via-India-via-Sri Lanka tunage mixed up with bits of jarring avant stuff.
