Digital arts meets electronic music and technology at MUTEK.JP this month

Now in its fourth year, globally respected music and arts event MUTEK.JP just keeps going from strength to strength. With previously announced acts such as Hyperdub boss Kode 9 and techno queen Rrose, new additions also include deeply-rooted names in Japanese club culture such as Soichi Terada, Kuniyuki and Sauce8, who will be playing a collaborative new live set. There will also be an interesting spin on a ladies night, with an exclusively female showcase by Katimi Ai, Chloé Juliette and Mari Sakurai.

According to the festival, Minimal Wave label head Veronica Vasicka will also play a "hard techno set with a touch of industrial new wave and minimal synths". MUTEK.JP has now confirmed over 45 acts including both up-and-coming local talent and seasoned international acts. Find the full line-up here:
