From Eritrea, returning artist Johannes Debese aka Johnny D became acquainted with a wide array of music styles from an early age and quickly developed into a versatile artist, active in the Mannheim Collective. Johnny D’s style continued to develop under the influence of minimal electronic music, prompting him to try his hand at producing. His musical versatility makes it difficult to define his style, but one can safely locate his music and vinyl selection somewhere between deep-house, minimal, and techno. His productions are now found on top labels such as Cocoon, Moonharbour, Strictly Rhythem, BPitch Control, Mobilee and many more. As well as an ever busier DJ schedule, Johnny D has become an essential member of the global house music scene. He shares the decks with Frankfurt’s DJ/producer Nils Weimann, who has just released his third EP together with Marc Philipp “Roy Noi” on Pleasure Zone. Nils is also a member of the Subtil Records family of artists. Nekes is one of the co-founders together with Frederico Molinari of Oslo Records,  a German tech-house label based in Mannheim. Now a Berlin-based DJ and producer, Nekes has been a very influential part of electronic music and has formed and inspired the scene for many years. His urge to create groovy, percussive music and his one of a kind DJ mixes have taken Nekes across the globe performing in the hottest venues. He holds a big fan base and continues to innovate himself hosting parties, producing music and mixing. Appearances on Oslo, Cecille, Mobilee, Deep Series, Melisma Records etc. are part of Nekes’ discography and as usual various releases for selected labels keep coming, catching attention and giving a glimpse of what Nekes holds for us in the future.
