Things start to go sideways on Friday with live sets that tease trippy rhythmic inclinations and strange-inducing sensations. Local artist Canhota adds her layer of weirdness to a lineup that runs a gamut from now Berlin-based Ramzi who has been honing her peculiar amalgam of balmy beats, altered vocals and disquieting, fantastical elements—to Tolouse Low Trax, the alter ego of Kreidler member Detlef Weinrich, who unleashes his slo-mo, leftfield, minimal collage-funk; the irreverent tech house stylist Machine Woman takes us on a ride through her subtextual musical narratives, and Errorsmith who last played MUTEK in 2004 brings his acclaimed new material and live show to Montréal.
