E Saggila is the moniker of Iraq-born, Toronto-based DJ and producer Rita Mikhael. Sitting at the crossroads of techno, noise, gabber and breakcore, Rita Mikhael's music is fearless, confrontational and utterly thrilling. Before she decided to focus on music full-time, Rita Mikhael studied medical aesthetics at a school in Toronto, where she learned about "very invasive" procedures like chemical peels and facial reconstruction. Like those procedures, the music she's made since then is not for the faint of heart. As E-Saggila, Mikhael builds on her background in harsh noise and analog improvisations to create claustrophobic and densely layered techno.
