Argentina artist Alexis Cabrera’s style can best be defined as a tech-house sound with groovy bases. He performs exclusively live, singing his own songs on the fly. His songs have been released on more than a handful of labels and in 2011 he co-produced Barem’s “After the Storm“, along with Barem himself, released on Minus. Cabrera released his debut album “Ocean Between” on Mindshake in 2011. Based in Berlin, Cabrera founded the Fun Records label together with Barem, which focuses on releasing freestyle jams with techno and house elements that work as a platform to feature friends and like-minded artists. Berlin-based Cab Drivers are DJ Zky & Daniel P, both producing dance music since 1992. In 1994 they founded Cabinet Records and with that, they became among the first to forge a new esthetic in house music, made of chasing, advanced 909 programming, clean, minimalistic sound design and subtle lines of funk and Latin melodies. Cab Drivers have released 6 vinyl 12-inches and many other classic cuts under the names of Compass, Horseshoe, Warten Borgmann & The Poor Knight. Recent releases include collaborations with Brawther, Subb-an, and Chez Damier. In 2006 Richie Hawtin picked the cream of the Cabinet`s repertoire, collecting it into a 2 x 12” and CD compilation released on Plus 8, which has become an essential must-have. Later more tracks from the duo got pressed on DAP, Seasons Limited 1, Sonar Kollektiv, Pokerflat, Highgrade and Sharivari Records. 24 years after their first release, Cabinet Records continues to put out quality music with incredible consistency. Returning HoW artist 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.
