Music On A Whim and Brasserie Illegaal are thrilled to present an evening of bleeding edge electronics, freeform rap and noise. We use the tag line 'This will crush you' as an apt description of the harsh, frenetic, ferocious, yet utterly engrossing and polyrhythmic panoramas these incredible artists will open up for the audiences.
A driving force behind Tehran’s vibrant electronic music scene, Ata Etbekar better known as Sote has a wide-ranging love of rich sounds and textures that is embodied in diverse paths such as hardcore club sounds, collaborations that straddle (traditional) acoustic and electronic instrumentation, and solo experimental electronics. He will give a taste of new live material in the works, creating a hellish club inferno that picks up from the polyrhythmic madness of his seminal release, Hardcore Sounds from Tehran.

Their show is a very raw and improvised form of live experimental hiphop, Freeform Rap and Noise.
