Sweden’s Alex Willner releases gorgeous minimal techno as The Field. Typified by long-form, loop-based compositions, Willner’s music has a trance-like ambient quality to it, and last year’s “Cupid’s Head” appeared on numerous year-end charts. Check out one of his most famous tracks, “A Paw In My Face:”

Footwork/juke/ghetto giants Rashad and Spinn will be playing their native Chicago. Both are founding members of the TEKLIFE collective. Rashad had a big 2013, putting out an EP, “I Don’t Give a Fuck” and a full length, “Double Cup” on the influential Hyperdub label.

Female-fronted snotty punkers Perfect Pussy split heads last year with their EP “I have lost all desire for feeling,” a 4 track, 13-minute affair. Their debut LP, “Say Yes to Love,” tightens the screws without losing the edge. Pitchfork’s Lindsay Zoladz gave the album an 8.6 and the coveted “Best New Music” tag, so it’s no surprise to see them on the line-up.

The chorus also echoes the saxophone sample heard in the Souls of Mischief track, which is Washington Carver Jr.’s cover of “Aubrey” by Bread.

VW pays further homage by borrowing the first line of the song, so that

Back back way back I used to fret that my honey/Would play me for one with more papers it was funny

becomes

Back back way back I used to front like Angkor Wat/Mechanicsburg, Anchorage, and Dar es Salaam

Compare the chord progression (and heavy use of the harpsichord) of “Step” to Pachelbel’s Canon in D.
