DJ Massari hosts Copenhagen based, genre-melding electronic duo, Smerz, for a live in-studio interview on Thursday, May 2nd @ 12:45PM. The Norwegian duo perform on Friday, May 3rd at this year’s MUTEK SF Festival.
One day, Catharina Stoltenberg and Henriette Motzfeldt abandoned their classical training for digital chamber experimentation. Inspired by the freedom and immediacy of footwork and bass, the duo began to spin their lyrical intuition on the low end spectrum of electronic music, creating a hypnotic, intriguing sound with an emotional honesty so minimalist as to be brutal.
Okey (2017) and Have Fun (2018), two releases for XL Recordings, extract just the necessary pop and R&B to deliver both the sexy and the sad, as corny as they are rebellious.
