New Silent presents the launch of Fatima Al Qadiri’s new EP Genre-Specific Xperience. For this event Al Qadiri, a New York-based artist and musician, showcases five pieces of music that reinterpret five sub-genres of dance music: Juke, Hip hop, Dubstep, Electro-Tropicalia, and early-’90s Gregorian Trance. Each track will be accompanied by the premiere of a music video, created by some of the most exciting young artists working in video today: Ryan Trecartin, Rhett LaRue, Kamau Patton, Tabor Robak, Leilah Weinraub, and Sophia Al-Maria. An after-party that pays homage to the genres that inspired GSX follows.
