The subversive visuals of Weirdcore are a thrilling match for Slikback, a prolific musician who has emerged as one of the most exciting club artists from East Africa in recent years. Known for his dark sound design and mischievous approach to sampling and composition, Slikback has found a terrific aesthetic mould for his unique fusion of contemporary club styles like techno, dubstep, jungle, breakbeat, footwork, trap, and drill.
London-based visual designer Weirdcore also knows how to bend genres and styles in his own visually unique ways. For over 15 years he’s collaborated with a huge range of daring contemporary artists, creating mind-bending technology-driven videos and boggling tour visuals. Last year, the duo was invited to Rewire to present the world premiere of a brand new audiovisual performance called VOID, but due to visa issues they had to adjust the work into a shorter remote presentation. Over the last year the duo have further developed the piece, resulting in a thunderous and mind-blowing audiovisual live show. At Rewire 2023 VOID will finally be performed in full.
VOID is curated by Unsound, commissioned by Rewire, Donaufestival, and Unsound.
