Pacifica (Live)

Wed 19 Aug @ 20:00 – 21:30 CET

Two dignified veterans of Switzerland’s club culture hooked up this spring to release their debut EP “Blaze” on renowned label Drumpoet Community. Pacifica emerged from the fertile soil of Zurich’s rich club scene. Embracing broad influences ranging from balearic to deep house and techno, Domenico Ferrari (aka High Heels Breaker) and Balint Dobozi (aka Valentino Tomasi) achieve that fragile balance between creating spaces for the listener’s mind and delivering the beats for the feet. Working exclusively with a full-blown live setup, they bring true live-sequenced and processed music as much to the recording studio as to the stage. Individually, they’ve worked with artists like Jamie Lidell, Kalabrese, Vladislav Delay, David August, Nik Bärtsch, Jojo Mayer, and Roli Mosimann. We are more than delighted to have these two mercenaries of electronic dance music perform live at this year’s IRF!
