Gabber Modus Operandi is an accidental project founded by Kasimyn and Ican Harem. Following a standout performance at CTM 2019, Bali-based duo Gabber Modus Operandi return to Europe.
The soon-to-be infamous duo promise potent, unusual fusions of “the sacred, the stupid, and the fun,” exhibiting a penchant for any and all things outrageous. After cutting their teeth at local parties and punk gigs in Denpasar, the duo banded together to experiment with and amalgamate the evil energies of gabber, driving rhythms of footwork, percussive patterns of funkot (an Indonesian dance music subgenre), and wildness of jathilan (a traditional Indonesian trance dance in which spirits possess a dancer’s body, challenging one to become more animal and more wild).
These ventures can be heard in their singular productions of what they term “200 bpm orgasm music.” Debut release Puxxximaxxx emerged via influential Indonesian imprint Yes No Wave in fall 2018.
