E-Saggila (live), Illsee, provoda
After a long summer hiatus Aqualung hits back again, this time treating Shanghai and Beijing with live performance from one of the most exciting Techno / Industrial / Gabber
producers in recent years – E-Saggila from Toronto, Canada. Her music had been released on labels such as Northern Electronics, Opal Tapes and BANK Records.
From her base in Toronto, E-Saggila covertly binds industrial music's harshest pole of rhythmic intensity with club-wise shock tactics to create a dark and emotive soundtrack to snap us out of our digital daze. As the co-founder of the cult label Summer Isle, E-Saggila has incubated her productions and performances surrounded by the noisy experimentation that the label is best known for — and it's here that we can locate her influences. Esplendor Geométrico and Muslimgauze give a hint, but there's more to it.
Locked into the idea that music's most extreme and abstract forms have everything to do with the development of dance music culture, E-Saggila carries the DIY ethos that underpins it all right into techno's contemporary core. Part destruction, part reconstruction, it's a sense that's increasingly swarming techno's mainline. A keen feel for elegiac ambient compositions glues much of her work together, and it offers much needed respite from the intensity that's otherwise closely stacked up. The eloquent and melancholic moments typically descend into grim cul-de-sacs, only to corner us there with strong doses of gabber's brutal horsepower. Often topping the low end with a frenzy of breakbeat workouts, E-Saggila is lethal in her hectic bursts.
With a collection of tapes on her own label, as well as a number of prominent releases on Opal Tapes, E-Saggila made an appearance on BANK Records NYC in 2017, which culminated in her acclaimed album, 'Dedicated to Sublimity', from last year. Off the back of this, E-Saggila commenced her first tour of Europe in late 2018, honing her live shows as support for Regis, as well as Lee Gamble. With a new album just released on Northern Electronics, her ascent is becoming sharper and evermore crucial.
在这个夏天休眠了一段时间的Aqualung水肺又重新浮上水面了，本次嘉宾是来自加拿大多伦多的E-Saggila，为您带来现场Live set，在我们看来她是近年最令人兴奋的 Techno / Industrial / Gabber 制作人之一。其作品分别发表在了Northern Electronics, Opal Tapes, BANK Records和她自己的邪典磁带厂牌Summer Isle上。
E-Saggila在暗中将工业音乐中最粗糙冷酷的节奏与俱乐部音乐形式结合，所创作出的黑暗且感人的作品能够将我们从数码世界的茫然中一掌拍醒。作为邪典磁带厂牌Summer Isle (主要发行工业/噪音/硬核/氛围音乐) 的创立人之一，E-Saggila在这厂牌标志性的噪音实验声音中孵化出了她独有的风味，同样在这个厂牌的发行作品中你也可以大致摸索到她的音乐根源，给你个提示: Esplendor Geométrico和Muslimgauze，但其实远不止这点。
E-Saggila在她运营的厂牌上发过数张作品，也在Opal Tapes上发了几张关键作品，于2017年首次在BANK Records亮相，随后于去年在BANK又发表了一张备受称赞的全长专辑Dedicated to Sublimity。紧接着展开了她的首次欧洲巡演，被邀请做Regis和Lee Gamble的暖场嘉宾。前不久在Varg的厂牌Northern Electronics发行了新专辑My World My Way后，她在世界地下电子音乐场景中的存在显得越发尖锐和关键。
