Joseph Capriati is one of the new mavericks on the techno scene. Whether it be having the confidence to release a debut album containing ambient tracks and Drum & Bass; or the discipline and creative freedom displayed to convinced Adam Beyer to release two multiple-track EP’s on his Drumcode label; or the versatility and insightfulness that characterizes Josephs DJ sets and enables him to connect with crowds across Europe, South America, Asia, North America and South Africa. Rino Cerrone is also from Italy and from 1999 to 2003 he produced on his own Rilis label 10 hi quality releases, which soon become a cult label with impressive sales. In 2004 the Special Edition project was born, a collection of the very best minimal techno tracks, with his unmistakable style. Plus the new Rilis RMX project, born in 2005, where international artists remix the last 7 years Rilis hits. The same year a brand new label project: Loose Records. The label has the goal to produce and promote young talents. Tonight also marks the return of the mighty Mike Dehnert, delivering techno music like it should: no nonsense, pure and with an intention leaving no doubts as to where his soul belongs. The +4Bar showcases a very eclectic group of talent tonight. UK artist Tony Lionni has, over the last few years, been releasing track after glorious track of Detroit-tinged techno and deep house on mighty labels such as Versatile, Wave, Mule Musique, Freerange and of course Osgut Ton. Recent remixes on Moodmusic and International Deejay Gigolos as well as licenses to Balance (Will Saul) and Cocoon (Sven Vath) comps have all helped push Tony further into the limelight. Sven Weisemann is only twenty-six years old, but already he’s carved out a niche which is unmistakably his own as a composer, musician, producer and DJ. As a producer, his music draws deeply on the legacy of Chicago and Detroit, yet somehow manages to end up sounding as fresh as a daisy – records such as ‘Vibe’ and ‘Slices’ are house music that is half atmosphere and half beats, and not afraid to take its sweet time to lull the floor with their charms. With the addition of Fritz Zander (who you may know from Bpitch Control’s Zander VT), the upstairs area gets rollin’ big time.
