Lotic is DJ and producer J’Kerian Morgan. Raised in Houston, Texas and now operating out of Berlin, Morgan is a resident at the city’s famed Janus parties and in has recent years evolved into one of the most original voices of Berlin's club life. The 25-year-old released two EPs in 2013 - Sankofa / Glittering, and Fallout - both on Sci Fi & Fantasy, and has followed up with 2014's Damsel in Distress on Janus's own imprint. Having featured on Bjork’s recent sit-in for Rinse FM alongside a flurry of press attention, the stereotype-baiting producer’s first official outing, 2015’s Heterocetera EP on Tri Angle, is undeniably worthy of the hype.
Larry B (UK)
The gender-defying 26-year-old producer, vocalist and dj, Larry B (‘B’ stands for Boakye), is one of the London underground’s most exciting new talents. With an ability to write heart-wrenching songs and create genre-bending productions, Larry B has spun her own unique take on the R&B genre, which can be experienced on her debut EP 5 sad songs, described by the artist as an intimate, dreamy mixture of "melancholia and grown nursery rhymes".
Gary Gritness (FR)
Hailing from the post-industrial city of Nancy, France, is bad boy and multi-instrumentalist funkateer Gary Gritness. Killer electro funk blends nowadays influences from the streets of Detroit, Oakland and Atlanta around his trademark soulful sound. Using an oldschool approach, Gary's music has been released on Clone and Hypercolour, and is dirty, warm & funky, and is best enjoyed in his powerful live shows featuring seamless dance beats, masterful vocoder and funkafied keyboards pyrotechnics.
Zeno van ver Broek (NL)
Zeno van den Broek is a Dutch-born, Copenhagen-based composer and artist. Van den Broek works in a multi-sensory way to research and express physical, social and acoustic notions of space. He utilizes immaterial and temporal means to create site and concept specific works and performances. This trans-disciplinary method has a strong conceptual foundation, which enables Zeno to comprehend and reveal the richness and complexity of spatial, social and physical perception. At CLICK Festival Zeno van den Broek presents his piece Hysteresis based on the concept that the current state of a system is dependent on its history. Van den Broek implements these mathematical and physical techniques on the composition of visuals and sound while simultaneously relating these concepts to movements in society.
CLICK Festival 2018 takes place from 19 – 20 May 2018 in Elsinore, Denmark.
