Johannesburg-born and bred DJ and composer Renato has been in the dance music industry for over a decade and has hosted well respected underground events all over Johannesburg, South Africa, headlining and supporting some of the biggest names in the industry. Among many prolific projects including high profile labels, Renato also launched Chocolat Records, an electronic music label co-owned with Miguel Tavares. In this all but exciting venture, the label promises to release pristine content with artists signed globally. Klas Lindblad aka Sasse has been DJing since the end of the 80s, dwelling first thru pop music and eventually finding electronic music in the early 90s. He was running one of the first house clubs in Turku, Finland from 92-96 and was a regular guest at the major parties in the Finnish electronic scene. His early work has been considered a milestone in the Scandinavian house sound and the original 12-inches are still very much sought after. Sasse started Must! Records in 2003 for more obscure disco, italo and chicago house edits, and has secured residencies in several Berlin clubs that keep his fans happy. Returning House Of Waxx guest Katerina moves smoothly inside the sphere of house and techno but you can hear her drop just about anything in her sets. With a special knack for the avant-garde shades of the dance palette, Katerina has gained a reputation for suspense-packed and emotional marathon sets, to be experienced first-hand at her residencies at Helsinki clubs like Kaiku and Ääniwalli, and festivals such as Turku Modern and Flow Festival.
