Her Ra – Surrey Muse

Her Ra aka Sophie Zhamurely is a Tbilisi-based producer who has been making electronic music for more than five years and during this time, she has more than ten releases on labels such as: UNHEARD / Techno Vinyls Records / RED REC / Vumantra / W8RD and more. She`s also the co-founder of an experimental label ‘Borders Of Known’ created in 2020. Mainly focused on experimental, synthesis with Techno and Ambient sound, her current project ‘Saahiwa’ moves into ritual experimental music with elements of experimental techno. Her music is built more on mind trip than it is on dance rhythms- this applies to both her projects, but in different ways.

Lend Me Your Underbelly – Surrey Muse

‘Lend me your underbelly’ is the alias of Christian Berends, a musician and artist based in the Netherlands who ‘tries to create mesmerizing and surreal music where time is dilated’. Previously a member of the black metal band Salacious Gods, Christian began to explore ‘the dreamy and psychedelic side of music’ since 2011. Fueled by improvisation, nature and spiritual grounding, his experimental field recordings awash through guitar, ‘speaking in the language of the ancients, blowing as a still storm hanging in defiance to gravity itself’. Christian uses Guitar and a variety of other instruments as well as loopers and vocals ‘to explore the edges of inner musical perceptions.’
