A Low Hum

Wellington, NEW ZEALAND
Preferring to only play live, not recording or releasing any music - never ...playing a song the same way twice, Ian Jorgensen (A Low Hum) has spent the best part of 2019 touring through the US, Asia, UK, Europe and his home of New Zealand. Playing original house, techno, whateveryacallit, live, in the middle of the audience, don't spill beer on him, please. Consider ginger beer or root beer if you absolutely have to spill some kind of beer on him - he prefers organic, cold-pressed, slow-brewed arrogance in a bottle. A Low Hum will be spending all of 2020 touring throughout the world and will be playing your house, local club or festival, if not, make it happen - ask him to play your house, do it, if he says no, press him, ask him why not, then accuse him of selling out if he still says no. If you have a spare room, he probably won't say no. If you let him into your house, make sure you have plenty of cake. Fuck Trump. Read More

Mt. Borracho

San Antonio, TX
Mt.Borracho is a audio-visual project founded in 2013 by Zachary Smith and ...Cameron Day. Since forming Mt.Borracho has released material surrounding personal surrealism, paranormal and abstract sound design. The act has appeared multiple times on the Radio Dada Chicago Whpk 88.5 with an improvisional style involving textures, drone and dark sounds.

Mt.Borracho appeared alongside local veteran deejays Katrina Fairlee, Nick McDonnough and NY-based Umfang for a set in 2018. Zachary Smith recorded an in-studio broadcast at Red Light Radio Amsterdam and abstract set at Asile404 Marsaille, France . Prior to SXSW, Mt.Borracho was featured in the March 2020 Wire UK magazine for their long abstract track as an “A/V collagist” according to writer Raymond Cummings.
