At first glance, BADBADNOTGOOD is one of the more curious placements on the lineup. The Canadian trio has made its name in avant-garde jazz jamming. Delve a little deeper, and it comes to light that their off-kilter beat work has also earned them features alongside stars in the hip-hop and R&B scene. Catch them Saturday for what is looking to be one of the most unique sets of the weekend. Expect some guest features.

Part funk, part glitch, part indie, all groovy. Hailing from Oslo, Norway this Scandinavian electronica duo is sure to be one of the more upbeat and memorable performances in the desert. Lemaitre (pronounced lem-my-tray) consists of former classmates Ketil Jansen and Ulrik Denizou Lund and boy do these two know their synths. Fusing traditional instruments and original synth melodies seamlessly, every Lemaitre production is carefully crafted and proportioned perfectly.

 

 

The viking duo’s 2016 is already off to a massive start with the release of their EP earlier this year 1749. Sonically, this release has a heavy use of piano and takes a few cues from neo-French touch music in the same vain as Breakbot or SebastiAn. Their live set is not one to miss. See you out there at the Polo Club.

When they made it into our 2014 Honorable Mention for the rousing Dead, Young Fathers were only getting started. Follow up album White Men are Black Men Too continued to feature their Scot-pop catchiness interlaced among heavy militaristic droning with hopeful background bagpipes staying strong. Interspersed across all of that sonic space are politically charged rap and soulful ballads that highlight a deeply caring and international influence.

 

Catch them Sunday for what’s been touted as a very energetic live show.

 

Young Fathers – Low

Young Fathers – Old Rock n’ Roll

Young Fathers – Shame

Young Fathers – No Way

With two EPs, one LP, and several high-brow festivals under her belt, singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Meg Myers has proven her prowess in alternative rock and stands as a warning beacon to the repercussions of being vulnerable to love and lust. While one’d expect romanticised lyricism to maintain mellow pacings, Meg Myers would rather throw that notion out the door for in-your-face gritty rock. That’s not to say she doesn’t have range; tracks like ‘In the Morning’ and it’s eerie lull seep through the soul just as powerfully.

 

Be sure to catch her early Sunday to start your weekend’s close off on a proper mosh.

 

Meg Myers – Desire

Meg Myers – Lemon Eyes

Meg Myers – I Really Want You to Hate Me

Meg Myers – The Morning After

Meg Myers – Go

Of all the first families of electronic music: The Brothers Lawrence, The Brothers Macklovitch, and The Brothers Martinez. The most influential and dynamic duo of them all has to be The Brothers Dewaele aka 2manyDJs. For the past 12 years they have been annihilating dance floors across the globe with their eclectic anything goes style. If you looked at a track list you would find Justice next to Journey, Boys Noize next to Blur, or Moby next to Mumbai Science.

 

 

An offshoot of the legendary group Soulwax who pioneered many of the grimy synths you hear in electronic music today, 2manydjs brings a lot of the heavy electro synths and style into their own performances. Likely to go down in the Sahara Tent, this set is a must-see. Old school and new school fans rejoice as this may be the most diverse and unique electronic performance of the weekend.
