Montreal's legendary annual techno festival doesn't take place until June, but we're getting a special sneak preview here, complete with the big guns. Akufen, Stephen Beaupre, and Vincent Lemieux are synonymous with minimalism, thanks to their releases on Musique Risquee. Efdemin makes soaring, melodic techno on Dial Records, and Cheap & Deep has been winning accolades for the eclectic, moody work he's produced on his own and with To Rococo Rot's Stefan Schneider as Hauntologists. With Derek Plaslaiko, Gamelatron, and Borne.
