From Mexico City's vibrant, heady underground dance scene Demian Licht emerged in 2016 as an electrifying new voice in techno with the self-released Female Criminals Trilogy Ep’s through her own label Motus Records. A brooding, fiercely intellectual, floor- orientated call to feminist arms.
On July 10th, Demian release her first album Die Kraft.
The album explores the concept of Die Kraft, translating to the "the force," in German. The project was written between Germany and Mexico, where Demian Licht participated in ancestral ceremonies with women shamans. The nine tracks are representative of the El Camino Rojo, or the red road—the path where ancient groups in Mexico would summon their ancestors.
Die Kraft is also Demian Licht's live show project, combining sound, light and architecture in collaboration with Mexico City studio Fragments & Forms. The full-length is the Mexican producer's follow-up to her Female Criminals EP trilogy, a techno series centering feminism and womanhood. Aside from producing, Licht also runs the Mexico-based Motus Records and Motus Org.
Motus Records is the label where Demian Licht has been releasing independently her projects so far. She is pursuing in to create a multidisciplinary platform by blending several fields outside music itself such as; film, architecture, lighting design, multimedia & fashion. By giving an space to collaborate and support emerging Mexican artists from these fields.
