Every week, a different FADER editor compiles a playlist to highlight a new release and give you a guide to that artist’s web of influences and peers. These Staff Selects live in our Spotify app, alongside GEN Fs from our archives and playlists for each issue. This week, it’s Emilie Friedlander on her trip to the Mutek festival in Montreal.
This weekend, I took a plane to Mutek, an international electronic music and digital art festival that was celebrating its 14-year anniversary in its hometown of Montreal. To accompany a travel log I wrote of my experiences on days three and four, I thought I'd put together a playlist of some of my favorite artists there, from gritty Montreal beatsmith Hobo Cubes to minimal techno pioneer and Underground Resistance founder Robert Hood.
