Recently performing with the likes of Machine Girl, Deli Girls, Swan Meat, and Gabber Eleganza, with two Knifefists, Julia Louise creates dense, noise influenced dance tracks to thrash to. Delivering the sounds of breakcore, gabber, and digital hardcore, KnifeFist takes to stage with a mission to take you to catharsis with his raw energy, explosive vocals, and brain-shakingly infectious rhythms.

KnifeFist is a founding member of Bitten Twice, a Dublin based experimental rave collective. They’ve been described by Plain Sailing magazine (Belfast) as “one of the most exciting labels to emerge from Ireland in recent memory.”

E The Artist is a Yoruba – Irish sound and visual artist from Dublin, Ireland. His musical works integrate and reimagine contemporary and past African diasporic sounds. Having performed with the likes of Yosuke Yukimatsu, DJ Paypal & Harmful Logic, his brash yet focused string of releases are being internationally recognised. 

E The Artist’s body of work recontextualizes contemporary black club genres in the loudest, brashest and most in-tense iterations. Dance and rap styles, from jungle to grime, fuse with the heavier strains of power electronics and extreme metal tropes to remove the oft-constructed ‘palatability’ label that’s falsely placed on black music. Instead, E places the lens on the constantly blossoming neo-cultures happening across the diaspora and from his home base of Ireland in his celebrated work as an artist.
