20:00 Perturbator (France)
A former black metal guitarist who switched to dark synthwave, James Kent aka Perturbator got his genre-free attitude toward music from his parents, one of them being rock critic Nick Kent. He was given a Pantera album at the age of three, and a guitar at the age of 11. After learning Tool and Slayer riffs on the guitar, he began writing his own music, but Mom and Dad's synth collection was also calling, and the younger Kent took to the keyboards with both metal and cyberpunk attitudes. He debuted his sound with the 2012 EP Night Driving Avenger while two albums, Terror 404 and I Am the Night, arrived that same year. The combination of retro-techno and aggression attracted the developers of the campy and violent video game Hotline Miami, who added Perturbator to contribute to the 2012 game's soundtrack. The Sexualizer EP followed in 2013, and was reissued by the Finnish extreme metal label Blood Music. The label also issued Perturbator's concept LP Dangerous Days in 2014. Work on the Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number soundtrack followed in 2015, then Dangerous Days' story of a religion using technology to persuade followers was continued on the 2016 concept album The Uncanny Valley. The following year, Kent issued the EP New Model.

23:00 WhoMadeWho (Denmark)
Danish band WhoMadeWho play on the fringe of pop, working with the likes of Hot Chip and Digitalism while landing on vanguard labels like Gomma and Kompakt. Founded in 2003 in Copenhagen, the band is a trio comprising Tomas Høffding (bass, vocals), Jeppe Kjellberg (guitar, vocals), and Tomas Barfod (drums). Their disco-punk style draws from a range of influences, among them 1960s psychedelia, 1970s stoner rock, 1980s post-punk, and 1990s electronica. Upon signing to the Munich-based Gomma label, WhoMadeWho released a few 12" singles -- Happy Girl (2004), Two Covers for Your Party (2004), and The Loop (2005) -- before unveiling their full-length album debut, WhoMadeWho (2005), which spawned two additional singles, Space for Rent (2005) and Out the Door (2005). In support of these releases, the band toured Europe extensively. Their second full-length album, Green Versions (2006), was an acoustic interpretation of their eponymous debut full-length that was inspired by their experiences as a live touring band. After a couple years of silence, WhoMadeWho returned in 2008 with a new single, TV Friend, which was followed in 2009 by a second single, This Train, and an accompanying full-length album, The Plot. After joining the roster of the trendsetting Kompakt Records, WhoMadeWho released two more albums, 2011's Knee Deep and 2012's Brighter. Their 2014 release, Dreams, found them moving closer toward pop and signed to a new label, Darup Associates. Along with touring, WhoMadeWho kept themselves busy with short-form releases such as 2015's Ember EP and the following year's Hi & Low single, which also appeared on the group's volume of the Body Language mix series. In 2017, the single I Don't Know arrived ahead of their fourth album.
