Ferox Records is the label of producer and DJ Russ Gabriel. Running since 1993, Ferox took an immediate stance at the forefront of U.K. techno. Tonight will celebrate the label’s 25 years in existence, with some great invited guests. No stranger to Tresor Club, Russ Gabriel is one of the U.K.’s most respected electronic musicians, DJ, producer, composer and filmmaker, having recorded nearly one hundred EPs and several albums since 1991. Russ Gabriel also runs the house music label Soul On Wax Communications and Funky Barber Films. Steve O’Sullivan is a UK based producer releasing on Sushitech and on his own labels Mosaic and Bluespirit. Steve produces slowly evolving, very minimal, soulful club tracks on his labels Bluetrain and Green, showing his love for subtle sounds and dub effects. He also ran the Bluespirit label, on which he collaborated with Ben Sims, Lee Grainge and Russ Gabriel.  Mosaic offers a sound between house and techno and features, apart from his own productions as The Wise Caucasian and Ephebe, releases from Paul Mac, Aubrey, Downlink, Mark Broom and Mark Ambrose, to name just a few. Kosta Athanassiadis is XDB, whose deep and intensive love for electronic music was his driving force to start a DJ career in 1993. In 2006 XDB founded his own record label „Metrolux“ on which he has released several EPs, creating a reputation for his distinctive sound design. For the last 12 years, Berlin-born Janina developed an impressive sharp ear, technical skills, an asserted signature, despite continuously evolving music tastes. Playing regularly in the best clubs in Berlin and in European capitals, Janina is now playing twice a month as a resident of Monasterio Club in Moscow. In the Tresor basement: A native of Pittsburgh and a self proclaimed synth nerd, Shawn Rudiman is known for his deep, soulful style of techno, and for his live improvised sets which he constructs on the fly using a horde of vintage machines. In 2013 he released Monolithic Soul, a collection of songs in four time-limited installments through the Detroit Techno Militia label. Shawn Rudiman also runs the Technoir Audio label with Adam Ratana and Jwan Allen. In 2016 Shawn released collection of unreleased recordings from 1999 to 2004, the first in a series of from-the-vault compilations from the American producer. The following year a two-decade retrospective album “Timespan” was released on Pittsburgh Tracks. Joey Beltram hardly needs introduction. One of techno music’s most influential pioneers, his many albums on our label are legendary as well as on many of the biggest labels of the early 90’s such as Nu-Groove, Warp, Transmat, and R&S Records. Much of his music during that time is widely acknowledged as groundbreaking. Beltram has also been heralded as a major influence by many of today’s DJs and producers including Daft Punk (as mentioned in their song “Teachers”). To experience his basement set is something unforgettable. As if that was not enough, another Tresor legend and the prince of techno himself Blake Baxter will join on the decks. One of the original Detroit techno soul innovators, Blake has had seemingly mythical and prodigious releases in his career, many on our Tresor label that have become the stuff of legends. You don’t want to miss this basement extravaganza, especially considering that frequent guest and Buttons resident, Berlin-based Madalba of Femme Fraktale will be sharing the decks. In September 2011, Madalba moved to Detroit where she started the collaboration with DJ Seoul and Tom Linder of Detroit Techno Militia. This travel has definitely and radically changed her approach to the techno concept, which she considers more a political and social phenomenon and a lifestyle than just a musical genre. Aside from all this, she launched her own record label “Future Déjà Vu”.
