Avant MUTEK tour tonight at Nectar

MUTEK is a festival of electronic music in Montreal celebrating its tenth anniversary this June. MUTEK’s sharing the love (and getting the word out on a grand scale) by sending a sample of the festival to cities across America.

Here in Seattle we’re getting un petit morceau de festival with a Thursday night show at Nectar Lounge featuring Akufen, a Montreal native whose “utterly distinct, a cut-up, micro-sampled approach to house music” gained him a respectable following of fans. After releasing an experimental album in 2005, Akufen scaled back his involvement in the electronic scene but now he’s back and ready to rip it up.

Also on the bill: Stephen Beaupré who blends complex rhythms into abstract and organic textures to produce a mélange of house, techno, and funk.

Seattle’s own Nordic Soul kicks the whole night off.
