Back in December we had our first taste of the lineup for this year's Moogfest—one of America's top experimental electronic music festivals. Gary Numan, Floating Points, Robert Hood, Kode9, DJ Harvey, Blood Orange and The Black Madonna were among the artists first announced to be playing the festival in North Carolina.
Moogfest has also released the second volume of their Translational Drifts EP series, showcasing the artistry of Moogfest performers from past, present and future.Translational Drifts: Moogfest Vol. 1 included contemporary electronic musicians reinterpreting seminal tracks from previous Moogfest performers such as Devo, Suicide and Laurie Anderson. The second volume offers remixes of four new contemporary reinterpretations. Highlights include Brian Eno's "1/1" from Ambient 1: Music For Airports, covered by Dan Deacon, then remixed by Afrikan Sciences, and Kraftwerk's "The Telephone Call" covered by Taz Arnold with a treatment from Nosaj Thing.
