Tokyo-based DJ Galcid plays live sets of warped, acid-drenched techno and electro according to the rules ‘no PCs, no presets, no presentation.’ An uncompromising philosophy, executed with bespoke modular synths, Galcid’s sets are a full-on analog assault. Her vision for electronic music has caught the attention of serious heads from veteran of the Japanese techno scene DJ Nobu to Yellow Magic Orchestra alumnus Ryuichi Sakamoto, who tipped her most-recent album, ‘Hertz’. Released on the revered Detroit Underground label, ‘Hertz’ committed to wax the improvised ethos of the experimental artist’s live sets, but swaps the nervous energy for Monolake-evoking soundscapes, white noise, and fidgety bleeps moving in fits and starts.
