XLR8R has just gotten back from EM15, the annual experimental electronic festival (formerly known as Mutek) that takes place in Montreal during the summer. Richie Hawtin, Ricardo Villalobos, and Matthew Dear (as Audion) were among the over 100 artists there performing at this leading-edge electronic arts, music, and culture event. This year’s highlights included American-Chilean producer Nicholas Jaar, composer Ben Frost, hyperactive junglist Lee Bannon, the city of Montreal itself in a summertime cameo, and, of course, loads of napping.

In this new Fact article, the drum & bass don delivers his three favorite pieces of gear including the Roland V-Synth, the Emu E64 Sampler, and, of course, lots of experimenting during his unorthodox creative process.
