British producer Visionist, often labelled as post-grime, and even more often as an uncategorisable demolisher of all – hip-hop, grime and RnB – restrictions, looked into the abyss of anxiety with his first album Safe, released via the experimental PAN records, and translated them into complicated structures of vocals, piano, drums and noise.
After two years, he returned in October with his second album Value, released via Big Dada Records. On it, he faced his own value the expectations of the music industry. He is an artist who sees music as a tool to investigate his mental condition and processes, deeply rooted in London rave, while simultaneously seeking the sound of the London future. He has performed at all major festivals, from Unsound to Sonar and CTM, and warmed up for FKA twigs on her first British tour in 2014.
He’ll be accompanied by the Portuguese master of analogue film Pedro Maia, who already performed alongside Vessel at the Sonica 2016 festival in Ljubljana. This time around, he’ll dissect Visionist‘s body in his characteristic dark manner.
The traditional June electronic gathering will be introduced by a DJ set by music producer and performer Nina Hudej, also known as one half of Warrego Valles.
Bring your treats. Entrance is free.
Organisation: MoTA – Museum of Transitory Art in coproduction with Kino Šiška. The event is part of the June in Ljubljana festival.
