TOYOTA VANGELIS (Czech Republic)

“Something of a local prodigy, Prague natives tell me how each performance is unlike the others.”

Freddie Hudson, Inverted Audio

Singer-songwriter Toyota Vangelis uses his uniquely autotuned voice and seamlessly merged electronic and (simulated) acoustic sounds to dismantle the binaries between the human and the machine. He’s always looking for new ways to interact with electronic music as the lead designer at the synthesizer company Bastl Instruments, but he still manages to find elaborate ways to sculpt the Czech language into his rhythmic and melodic structures. His songs revolve around love metaphors, while in fact they infiltrate intimacy into topics such as big data, climate crisis or alienation.
