We learn about Marie Davidson, a French-Canadian artist from Montreal who writes dance-club electronica that satirizes the club scene; a group of five DJs/producers from Nairobi called EA (East Africa) Wave; Kiddy Sm!le, a gay Parisian DJ, producer, singer and fashion provocateur; a trio from Detroit called River Spirit; Mr. Twin Sister, a Brooklyn-based quartet that’s often compared to Cocteau Twins & Portishead.
