Perc Trax is a London label run by Perc, releasing deep tech house to driving techno. Launched in 2004 as a vehicle for Perc’s own productions, it has evolved into a must check imprint for those with an interest in rough-edged electronic music from techno to house & electro to more experimental industrial & noise works. Perc is one of electronic dance music’s reference points: an internationally touring DJ, label owner and one of the most respected producers in techno today. Known as one of the most forward-thinking individuals in techno Perc fuses current sounds with his extensive knowledge of electronic music’s past to create something new & unique. A regular artist on such scene-leading labels, Perc travels the world playing in the most famous venues. As one of the hinges of the 90’s rave generation, Italian DJ and Sonic Groove artist Max Durante’s sound and his presence have been fundamental for the early Italian Techno scene. Well respected as a DJ, thanks to his great mixing abilities, as well as a producer for his precious creativity in his recording productions, Max Durante is a true innovator of dark, industrial techno. Ausgang is a Berlin-based Techno label founded by Nico and Roseen. It is a small independent label whose nuggets are played by the most influential artists in the field, a raw techno that hits hard with a cold and industrial atmosphere that will subdue the room. Production-wise, as well as behind the decks, they also operate as Ausgang. Both share the basic idea of techno – raw and gritty sounds with pounding rhythms. Just made for darkened rooms with fog and strobe lights. New Frames, but well-known names: Mathis Mootz aka The Panacea Official/Squaremeter teamed up with fellow Berlin resident David Frisch for their debut album on HANDS that is obviously inspired by the thriving techno culture of the German metropolis. In contrast to their (so far undercover) endeavors with the “CONTINUUM SERIES 1991-1998”, this is no historiographic account of rave culture, but very much a production of its time: Dark, industrial and techno in an absolutely flawless production (which is not much of a surprise considering the people behind the music) that bears enough ammunition for the dance floors as well as it works as a unit. In Globus we welcome the duo known as SKUDGE: combining their inspiration and talent through wires and analogue equipment, they seem to always present something new – in a very faithful style. What remains most significant on their output through the main label Skudge Records, as well as their remix material present on a row of different labels, it must be their exceptional sense of loops and unexpected detail in their productions, and their terrific live shows. Expect SKUDGE to do what they do best – their own music on their own terms, meaning that wherever their journey brings to us and them, it will always be very tasteful. We also welcome back artist Kenneth Christiansen who has been DJing all over Europe the last decade, playing in top clubs in most capitals. Apart from running the labels Echocord and Echocord Colour, and the Pattern Repeat project with Resoe, he is also booker/co-owner/manager of the club Culture Box in Copenhagen. Nimrod Katzir aka Pharoah is the co-owner of Parallax Records together with Yogg, and revered resident/curater at The Block club. Pharaoh has established himself as a leading voice of the Tel Aviv electronic music scene. As a DJ he is praised for his long, high energy sets, where he flawlessly shifts between deep modern techno and dark, broken 90’s electronics. Yuval Goren aka Yogg is co-owner of Parallax Records and a resident DJ at The Block club & Avadon parties. Yogg had his debut EP ‘460’ released in 2016. In the following year he released on Ed Davenport’s Counterchange 10th compilation and The Block club 1st release. Yogg’s most recent work was released on Non Series. As a DJ he is known for his long duration sets of deep, Industrial, mesmerizing and oldschool Techno till the last man standing. Together their releases on Parallax reveal very dynamic work in the genre. Tresor resident Jose Cabrera aka J.C. from Spain, debuting in Tresor on one of the Echoes nights, expresses a style of simple, raw, stripped down and hypnotic techno. In 2012, J.C. started the AHD label together with his friend Damian Schwartz, and he produced his first EP for the Argentinian label Greener Records in the beginning of 2013. After several other innovative releases, J.C. joined the Tresor label family with his different blends in subtle electronics.
