The '200 bpm orgasm music' duo returns for a potent blend of gabber, footwork and Indonesian dance music
WhenFri. 1 May, 2020
It can be pulverizing, uplifting and terrifying, sometimes all at once.
Following a standout performance at CTM 2019, and a recent invitation to Tasmania's Dark Mofo extravaganza, Bali-based duo Gabber Modus Operandi return to Europe this fall for a string of dates between end of September and mid October, including Krakow's Unsound Festival. The soon-to-be infamous duo promise potent, unusual fusions of “the sacred, the stupid, and the fun,” exhibiting a penchant for any and all things outrageous.
Gabber Modus Operandi are DJ and producer Kasimyn and fashion designer/MC Ican Harem. After cutting their teeth at local parties and punk gigs in Denpasar, the two bonded together to experiment with and amalgamate the evil energies of gabber, driving rhythms of footwork, percussive patterns of funkot (an Indonesian dance music subgenre), and wildness of jathilan (a traditional Indonesian trance dance in which spirits possess a dancer’s body, challenging one to become more animal and more wild). These ventures can be heard in their singular productions of what they term “200 bpm orgasm music.”
Debut release Puxxximaxxx was released via influential Indonesian imprint Yes No Wave in fall 2018. Their captivating performances combine their high-energy sound with a strong stage presence, extreme vocals, costumes and banners, as well a video backtrack that showcases the duo's interest in Indonesia's anarchic street cultures.
