Gabber Modus Operandi
Saturday, April 30

Gabber Modus Operandi are Kasimyn and Ican Harem. Born out of a shared obsession for high-octane, fast-paced sound, they explode an extensive range of influences into vibrant, outrageous productions.
Together, this duo from Indonesia fuses the challenging sounds of gabber, footwork, grindcore and noise with a number of uniquely Indonesian sounds such as jathilan (a trance dance in which a spirit possesses the body), dangdut koplo (a subgenre of a popular folk music), and funkot (reminiscent of both European happy hardcore as well as dangdut).
Their acclaimed records PUXXXIMAXXX (Yes No Wave / Danse Noir) and HOXXXYA (SVBKVLT) are chock full of tracks that are now international dancefloor staples. Be it through solo works and performances, video productions or collaborations, Gabber Modus Operand’s love for energetic, intense sounds forms the foundation of their hyper-active, unprecedented output. With exuberant digital sarcasm, they straddle the line between the sacred and the banal.
