Cristian Marras is an exciting young DJ, who has slowly been working his way through clubs in Berlin, Italy and Spain. He plays solid driving techno which is basic, raw and hypnotic. This young artist shows a good knowledge of the genre. Emanuel de Vayrac is the right person to take us on a deep and trippy journey along his long musical experiences. Organizing in Hamburgs’ mid-nineties illegal open air raves and techno parties in the notorious Rote Flora, he first started producing and djing ambient/experimental sounds. After moving to Berlin, with musical stops in glamy synthpop and minimal, the Goethe Institut invited Emanuel in 2007 as Berlin’s representative underground DJ to play in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Other international bookings brought him internationally to Tokyo, Toronto, and Moscow. His Habitus parties, inviting artists like Hector Oaks, The Transhumans, and Keith Carnal, are a fixture in Berlins’ Techno scene. Tonight’s new faces host is Joseph McGeechan, aka iFormat, who began his career in 2008 as one half of the BCR Boys, releasing on their own Backwater Community Recordings label and also on Perc Trax – with further releases on Synewave and Sleaze. The Glasgow artist is now residing in Berlin and is highly respected in the international underground techno scene: his dystopian post-punk exploration of techno creates an infectious unique experience.
