Abadir DJ Set

At a music festival for possible futures, few artists’ oeuvre and MO seem as common-caused as Abadir’s. The Egyptian-born producer-slash-DJ’s work flourishes under both macroscopic and microscopic lenses, actively pushing to breach overt nostalgia for lost futures and embellished pasts. Hypermodern characteristics of digital music-making take center stage, rendering carefully crafted, highly emotive expansions on glitch, jungle, IDM and experimental electronics. And yet it’s the load-bearing layers of darbuka drum sequences that tie up a powerful way forward, representing a distinct locale within the global eye.
