About the musicians:

Lusine (Seattle / Ghostly International)

From his early releases as Lusine onward, Jeff McIlwain’s electronic explorations make up one of the more diverse discographies of the past decade and a half. Effortlessly blurring the lines between techno, electro-pop and experimental composition, the Texas-raised/Seattle-based producer’s arrangements are meticulously constructed, but also filled with emotion and soul. With an introspective turn that’s hinted at in the record title, Lusine’s fourth album for Ghostly, “Sensorimotor”, sees McIlwain diffusing the pop-leanings of 2013’s The Waiting Room with opaque, brush-stroked melodies washing over these new buoyant productions.


McIlwain has performed throughout the US and abroad, including the SXSW, Mutek, DEMF, and Sonar festivals, and sets at London’s esteemed Fabric nightclub, Tokyo's Unit, and Berlin's Berghain and Watergate nightclubs. He has been involved in the scoring of various film and commercial projects, the most recent being music for Grand Theft Auto’s “Smuggler’s Run” and Meredith Danluck's debut feature film, “State Like Sleep” (Katherine Waterston, Michael Shannon, 2017) that he co-scored with fellow composer David Wingo.


Uji (Buenos Aires / ZZK / Shika Shika)

Uji (Luis Maurette) is an electronic producer and musician born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. A nomad since the age of two, Maurette has lived throughout the American continent in Ecuador, Chile, Mexico, USA and Argentina. Uji’s music is meant for the dance floor, and has roots in indigenous, folkloric and African music and borrows from the aesthetics and sound design of electronic music. Uji’s music is the alchemical ritual of merging these seemingly opposite worlds of the ancient and the modern.


He is half of the pioneering duo Lulacruza since its inception in 2005, with whom he has released 5 albums, a feature film and visual album by director Vincent Moon, as well as a remix series by a worldwide mix of producers. Their raw transformative performances have taken them to perform in festivals and concert halls in over a dozen countries.


Lola Villa (Washington DC / Bogota / Love Foundation)

Lola Villa is a producer and DJ from Bogotá. Her travels have brought her closer to her Afro-Colombian roots, taking the audience on a sonic exploration of the American and African continent through a digital lens.


When playing, Lola invokes landscapes, animals & rituals of her homeland Colombia – a country rich in Amazonian, Andean, Afro, and Arab musical legacies. By adding live and acoustic elements to her performances, such as percussions and southern rattles, she sets the tone for engaging and uplifting sets. Her sound is for that reason a profound journey of melodies––a playground of rhythms going beyond genres and geographical boundaries.


She’s a vivid advocate for an inclusive industry and a safe dancefloor, putting together workshops for aspiring female and non-binary DJs and musical meetups in cities such as: Tunis, Lagos, Amsterdam, and Washington D.C. Her philosophy: dance music needs disruption, it needs poetry, it needs people who cannot afford it. Dance needs people of color, it needs riot girls, and kranky queers. Lola lives in Washington D.C.


7e (Los Angeles / Tokyo / Bay Area debut)

A DJ from Tokyo, 7e is currently based in Los Angeles. She explores edgy experimental electronic music to indigenous tribal music, infused with much natural acoustics, luring many genres. Her strange but fresh selection, from the vast archives, is mixed experimentally. She has played for the deepest bars and clubs to massive outdoor music festivals, and is the resident DJ of Noods Radio in Bristol.
