Montréal electronic duo Pelada have resonated with audiences for their re-contextualized blend of Chicago house and Detroit techno with more abstract & abrasive club music. Chris Vargas and Tobias Rochman create a sound combining a patchwork of sequenced analogue synths, drum machines, samplers and voice that is both urgent and powerful. The resulting live sets are living and breathing entities, energetic and combative. Pelada grew out of Montréal’s infamous underground warehouse scene, performing alongside DJs, punk groups, and live experimental electronic acts. These large parties are often illegal, populated by an eclectic mix of punks, club kids, ravers and freaks, promoting a spirit of inclusiveness and open-mindedness.
