Volvox & Umfang
AUG 5 / Amsterdamse Bos
Resident DJ at New York’s iconic Bossa Nova Civic Club, Brooklyn’s very own techno, acid and deep-house stalwart Ariana Paoletti always delivers when it comes to high energy and jackin’ sets. Alongside her performance work, Paoletti is also an active Discwoman affiliate, the collective that represents cis women, trans women and genderqueer within the dance music scene. This year she’ll be performing alongside fellow Discwoman peer Umfang, as the two make their Dekmantel debuts.
New York DJ and producer Emma Burgess-Olson has that ability to seamlessly traverse the boundaries of house and techno, while retaining a staunch level of grit and energy. Co-founder of Discwoman, a platform and booking agency that pushes the needs of women, trans and genderqueer within the music community, as well as part-time resident at Brooklyn’s Technofeminism parties, UMFANG’s staunch approach to mixing is as equally as relentless as her impassioned, social agenda. During this year's Dekmantel Festival Umfang will play back-to-back with the other co-founder of the Discwoman imprint: Volvox.
