DISQUIET digs in to the ten­den­cies for dis­rup­ti­on and dysto­pia that per­me­a­te trough some of the dif­fe­rent sub­gen­res of hard­co­re tech­no like gab­ber, hards­ty­le, jun­gle and drum n bass, with a spe­ci­al atten­ti­on to the lat­ter. All the­se sounds are mar­ked by an inten­si­fied bass and drum, a mini­mum speed of 160 BPM and a ten­d­en­cy for dis­rup­ti­on of the flow. 

Focussing on the­se sonic rup­tu­res, pau­ses and bursts, DISQUIET explo­res how they can inform and sti­mu­la­te the body. Dancing hard­co­re is pre­sen­ted as a break from struc­tu­re, loo­king for a dis­qui­e­ted elsewhere.
