David Foster is Huren, a Canadian DJ based in Berlin who has been pissing around in the Subterranean electronic music trenches for over two decades. Huren’s output ranges from dark minimal techno, rhythmic noise, and harsh industrial. Foster’s other aliases include MRTVI, Obscene Mannequin , AVM with Blush Response, and O/H conspiring with Rich Oddie with releases on Opal Tapes, Electric Deluxe and Inner Surface Music. Blush Response is Joey Blush, Cuban-American artist and sound designer. His music is characterized by a modular synth heavy approach to sound design, combining rough, glitch-heavy beats with thick, distorted synths to create a sound that blurs the lines between electronic genres. And we welcome back again with pleasure to the Tresor decks Spanish DJ Artik, now Berlin-based and whose unsettling ambience and hammering percussion break up the rhythms that define Artik as a young artist still remaining of the top watch list.Tresor resident REKA slams the dancefloor with her signature set. John Daly is a DJ and producer from Ireland, and the co-founder of Feel Music. A singular producer all the way, echoes of his “Words” EP from 2007 in his label still resound, with its vastness and film soundtrack feeling that begs for repeat listening. Releasing on plenty of other quality labels, the recent “Everlasting” on Secretsundaze reveals a lush musicality that puts him in a league of his own. Berlin-based DJ and producer Oliver Deutschmann has made his mark by running and releasing on the imprints Falkplatz and Vidab (with Stephen Hill), and numerous releases and remixes for the likes of Soma, AIM, or JackOff to name a few. His uncompromising selections range from deep dubby house to big room techno, keeping the pulse on new sounds while always paying respect to the past, which can also be heard in productions on his collaborations with Ed Davenport, or monikers Gowentgone and SubBroomAssosciation. Co-owner of the Maeve label, The Drifter is Mark Flynn, an Irish producer, DJ and singer. The Drifter‘s DJ style, like his productions, definitely lean towards the hypnotic, melodic and emotive side of electronic music. He ran the Passion Beat parties in Berlin for over 3 years with his buddy Mano Le Tough, creating a reputation as a DJ that has steadily grown and brought him all over Europe. Iron Curtis’ pieces originate in a place simultaneously tuned to the sounds of Detroit, Chicago and Hamburg. One half of the well acclaimed Achterbahn D’Amour outfit, he intertwines Deep-House with soulful Techno in a disturbingly enchanting manner, his sound moves in the equilibrium of reduced, but never minimal. Flashes of kitsch brighten the dark universe of Iron Curtis, but fail to interfere with the melancholy subtext.
