In a unique commission between Uganda’s Nyege Nyege Festival and CTM, which was supported by Nusasonic and the Goethe-Institut International Coproduction Fund, Gabber Modus Operandi were joined by Wahono (of Uwalmassa, a Jakarta-based project that explores connections between contemporary electronics and traditional Indonesian sounds), and Uganda’s Nakibembe Xylophone Troupe (one of the few remaining groups that perform on the embaire—an extremely rare and gigantic indigenous wooden xylophone that is simultaneously played by eight musicians).

The commissioned work premiered within a lineup that featured: Squarepusher, Don Zilla, Astrid Gnosis, Virgen María, and VTSS.
