Use Knife is a new musical outfit, in which Stef Heeren and Kwinten Mordijck unleash their mutual love for analog and modular electronic machinery and Saif Al-Qaissy invokes fierce Arabic percussion grooves and sermons vocal energies.
Use Knife coincides Western underground music with traditional Arab music culture into a genuine melting pot of unique musical current. Their music is composed around propulsive electronic rhythms, ricocheting sequenced melodies and samples and vibrant Arabic drum rhythms.
Use Knife is the trio’s musical vehicle to explore and express hallucinatory freethinking visions to contemporary global living.
Use Knife is collaborating with Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (Jerusalem in my Heart, Hotel2Tango) for the production of their debut full album and with Youniss Ahamad for live visuals and scenography.
New album to be released late 2022 in conjunction with Kunstencentrum Vooruit, Ancienne Belgique, STUK, Muziekcentrum Trix, Wilde Westen, Ancienne Belgique and CC De Grote Post.
