Warrego Valles’ third instalment “save as” continues the duo’s experimentation with the deconstruction of sound and their attempts at shaping a music conglomerate that will transcend the usual club night format and at the same time allow them to stay true to their raw queer selves.

Evolution is a constant in our daily lives – constant change and metamorphosis, putting layers on layers, saving data on data. Yet our deepest fear is to be left behind, covered in dust, trapped in the vast space of oversaturated information and a parallel nothingness, forgotten, never saved. Like the 0’s and 1’s of the binary code, our DNA is a mere system of data, inevitably subject to change as it tries to cope with the pitfalls of existence. If only we were in fact generated as artificial systems – capable of reproducing ourselves and our new selves by producing new genomes, capable of perceiving history not only as it was written, but as it was.
