There’s just three days to go before Le Guess Who? takes over Utrecht. With over 150 artists set to perform, how do we make sense of such a monumental line-up? We made a list of the artists we’re most excited to see and asked them for their recommendations.
Watkins / Peacock
Performing Saturday 12th November at LE:EN (part of DJ Fitz presents)
Entrancing electro-acoustic duo Watkins / Peacock inhabit a sonic world at the borderlands of improvised music, krautrock and dub traditions. Visionary musicians, singular improvisers and prolific collaborators, Watkins and Peacocks’ list of projects includes Black Spirituals, Kronos Quartet, Mwahaha, tUnE-yArDs, and many others. Formed in 2017, the duo’s powerful hybrid of digital and analog conveys an ineffable sense of joy and resonance between their distinct musical approaches. We can’t wait to see them perform at Le Guess Who?. And today Peacock tells us which other artists he is looking forward to seeing. Read on to find out.
Fulu Miziki Kolektiv
Performing Thursday 10th November at TivoliVredenburg
“Ever since I heard Sun Ra, the album Lanquidity, I’ve been into Afrofuturism… Fulu has their own thing completely and I’m very drawn to them… also love the what I believe to be instruments that they have built themselves!”
Cate Le Bon
