Africainoir Noir DJ’s: Teleseen, Peter Matson, Selekta K7
Africainoir : The soundtrack to a film noir set in 2075 Jo’burg. Africainoir is a party dedicated to left-of-center music from the African diaspora.
Main project of nomadic DJ, producer and multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Cyr, Teleseen weaves together influences from the global underground into a unique mix. Manifesting both in freewheeling DJ sets and a wide variety of his own releases and production work for other artists, Cyr’s musical vision draws equally from deep house and afro house, samba, batucada, baile funk and MPB influences absorbed while living in Rio de Janiero, as well as the experimentalism and sound system culture of his hometown of NYC. Known for for his shifting polyrhythmic programming style and psychedelic synth work, Cyr has released records on 100% Silk, Feel Up Records, Boomarm Nation, Percepts, and Goldmin Music. He has a new album, The Emotional Life of Savages, due out autumn of 2017.
