There are plenty of great DJs around, but few are able to craft a journey as expertly as Panorama Bar resident and Perlon favourite Margaret Dygas. A specialist in disarming, weird and extraordinary sounds, Dygas is one of those selectors that will take you through strange and unfamiliar territory without it being jarring, managing to join disparate sounds to create endless grooves that never lessen their grasp of either your feet or mind. Stopping off at London’s Bloc on Saturday 9th September, she’ll be delving deep into the less explored realms of minimal dance music in an extended set at Krankbrother’s request.
Having moved to New York from her home nation of Poland at a young age, Margaret Dygas learned her trade in the big apple but quickly found her own niche with a twist on the skippy minimal that Zip’s label Perlon has become renowned for. Honing in on our sound through passages spent living in London and then Berlin, Dygas started producing around a decade ago, finding an experimental side to her music that deep house often lacks. Incorporating elements of dub, funk and jazz, Dygas’ own music matches her selections - strange, unpredictable and immeasurably alluring. Serving up the kind of grooves that could stretch for twenty minutes without change and yet never feel tired, her DJing is a true spectacle to observe, and with a full morning to play with at Bloc, this could be one of the most fascinating parties in London this September.
