Video Premiere: Gagarin – Panceat (Emergo Mix)

GAGARIN

In November 2020, producer/musician Graham “Dids” Dowdall released his Great North Wood full-length under his Gagarin moniker in all of its ambient splendor.

A veteran who has played with Nico, Didwell has collaborated with John Cale, Ludus, Eric Random, Suns of Arqa, Band of Holy Jo and Low Bias, and is a member of avant rock legends Pere Ubu and duo Roshi featuring Pars Radio.

Today we’re pleased to world premiere the music video for the remixed version of “Panceat” from the album.

On the self-produced six-minute clip, Didwell explores the colors and textures of a large sheet of rust as the remix explores the depths of ambient techno. He says the rusty metal signifies the concept of nature and the beginning of the post-industrial age in London.

Hit the play button below and enjoy.

NYC Health Department: Electric Zoo Attendees Need COVID-19 Test ‘Immediately’

electric zoo 2021

According to New York City health officials, 16 ravers who attended the three-day Electric Zoo festival held over Labor Day weekend on Randalls Island have tested positive for COVID-19.

Eight people have been identified so far as “potentially contagious and could have exposed others.”

As a result, attendees, who were required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the festival’s first day to enter the festival, are being urged by the city to get tested right away.

“The Health Department is leading this investigation, but New Yorkers have a vital role to play,” said Health Commissioner Dr. Dave A. Chokshi in a statement.

“Anyone who attended this festival should get tested immediately, regardless of whether or not they have been vaccinated. This is especially urgent if attendees are experiencing symptoms.”

Electric Zoo has yet to issue a public statement about the cluster.

Anyone looking to get tested, should visit nyc.gov/covidtest.
