South African-born, London-based Chantal Passamonte, aka Mira Calix, creates experimental electronica… sort of. Less obsessed with laptop gadgetry, she utilises analogue synths and vintage mixing hardware to collage found sounds, battered guitar riffs and the wide variety of weird and wonderful instruments she’s picked up on her world travels, creating an exquisite suite of almost palpably textured instrumentals.

Vienna’s Susanne Brokesch composes post-industrial artcore electronica where the ghosts of ancient opera recordings resonate in the same space as new-age jazz keyboards and retro-futuristic sci-fi sound effects.
