Born and raised in Istanbul, studied in London, and relocated to Paris in 2005, Tolga Fidan broke into the electronic dance music consciousness with his first ever release “Now I’m Weak EP” on Vakant (VA009) in 2006. In 2007 Tolga released “Venice / Tanbulistan EP” (VA014) to critical appeal: unprecedentedly a track from both his first 2 EPs was licensed to Cocoon for their seventh and eighth season Ibiza mix compilations. Continuing with quality releases on Vakant, Tolga Fidan’s bottomless sound, constantly morphing arrangement, and eclectic sound design somehow points towards the orient that has taken him so far in so little time, and tonight’s live set will convince you of his talent. Italian-born Alex Picone’s passion for deep analogue-sounding grooves is all consuming. In 2004 Alex took his first steps as a producer, hooking up with Kay Sand (Francesco Sperotto) to form Chronic Flakes. Their tracks quickly earned respect from the likes of Alex Neri, who released two Chronic Flakes’ 12”s on Bustin’ Loose in 2005/6, prior to unleashing their groovy, loopy tech-house extravaganza, the Omnadawn EP, complete with a remix by Guido Schneider, on Tenax Recordings in 2007. After moving to Berlin and submerging himself in recording and producing work involving friend Lucretia and Buzz Goree, Alex released his first solo EP “Furby Floppy” in 2008, played a couple of sets in Detroit during Movement DEMF in 2009 and explored a subterranean landscape of beats through his groove-ridden Motherland EP. Playing it, producing it, and making it happen, for the true heads: this is the fuel that ignites the passion of Picone. French artist Yakine began with a 2008 Esperanza release and eventually fell into a residency for the Weirdo Magnet parties at Rex Club, cementing him in the new emerging Paris house music scene. In November 2008 his first EP came out on the label Esperanza followed by other releases on the labels Eklo, Je t’aime records and Circus Company. London based artist Robin Ordell’s love of soulful grooves, dub and funk music stem back into a childhood influenced by the masters of funk and soul, finding themselves intertwined into what is now a deep love affair with house music. On the production front things are rapidly happening for this young artist with upcoming releases on Remake Musique, Safari Numerique and Leftroom. Robin Ordell is a resident DJ at London’s the wildly successful Half Baked parties, delivering his deep bassy breaks and warm loops that flow through his sets and productions, a unit of electronic rhythm with touches of minimal experimentation spread elegantly within his sound realm, whilst remaining resolute in a signature of funk encased in a strong house message.
