friday funk: cio d'or!

it's friday, and it's almost time... for cio d'or to make her chicago debut!

cio will be coming to town tomorrow to play smart bar, and i am quite giddy with anticipation. in the wide world of techno (and electronic music in general), cio is one of my absolute favorite artists. she's also very warm and inspiring on a personal level; we had a nice long chat when i met her in detroit during movement festival a few years ago. she does not play in the US very often, and in 2014 she'll be focusing on her own music, and much less on touring. so, for those in or close to chicago who crave deep, hypnotic abstract techno, this one is not to be missed! (more details over at the facebook event page.)

to help get ready for tomorrow night, here's a selection of discogs links and youtube players with some of cio's music. i've started with two tracks from her 2009 LP for prologue, die faser - "goldbrokat", perhaps the album's most well-known track, along with my personal favorite "brokat".

next up is the self-titled track from cio's 2011 EP magnetfluss, again for prologue, along with "ur" from her ur / uhr record on telrae last year.

finally, here's cio's very cool "mountain remix" for deepbass's "process", also released last year.

... and here's just one mix, if you're not yet suitably informed. it's from 2011, and it's still damn good: cio's RA podcast.

... and that's all for now. see you there!
