We pick the artist - They pick the music.

UI Picks is curated by the Underground Institute, an international agency for adventurous music and platform for culture. UI Picks episodes are tailored for selected underground radio stations.

Hellen Wu (Prieste5s) is a Berlin-based electronic musician and visual artist originally hailing from New York City. She is passionate about experimentation, and devotes her time to exploring the unexpected crossovers among different genres and different mediums. Her sonic identity is characterized by unique grooves, evocative ambiences, mangled field recordings and found sounds. Having discovered the world of live-coding recently, she is also active in the live-coding / Algorave scene, and a member of TOPLAP Berlin.

For this mix, she selected music made by different live-coders around the world, taking you on an uninhibited journey across spacey ambiences and unusual polyrhythms; across glitched-out drums and dark growling basses. Unbound by genre, these tracks reveal the true versatility and diversity of the live-coding scene
