His compilation ‘Something In The Sky’ was released on Axis Records in 2012, and In 2017 Jeff Mills entrusted DJ Surgeles to take care of “the Betty Hill Case”, a 12” inspired by the story and the interviews of an American couple who were allegedly abducted by extraterrestrials in a rural portion of New Hampshire in 1961. Shingo Suwa is a Berlin-based artist from Japan with a natural open mind towards musical exploration. His curiosity brought him to discover electronic music in the 90’s after experiencing the power of Chicago House and Detroit Techno during the prosperous years of Japanese club culture. All these influences created a versatile approach of self-expression, which can be felt during his eclectic DJ sets. Both a DJ and a producer, Shingo Suwa owns and manages two record labels. Merkur Schallplatten on which he explores the darker, more techno side of things and House Mannequin well known for its disco edits which he runs with Akirahawks. Together they form Love Comedy, a musical project with a first vinyl on the French label That Place Records.

We welcome back Aaron Siegel aka FIT Siegel to our home, he is the main distributor of house and techno from Detroit, the owner of his label Fit Records and Fit Distribution as well as the leftfield sublabel Est. 83′ Records and Fit Sound merchandise. As a DJ, FIT follows in the genre free footsteps of Motor City legends of the past. Rather than cordoning off a specific sound, he pulls freely from disco and post punk, to the most alien forms of techno and house music breeding in Detroit today. His unique take on the Motor City sound has taken him to top international venues. FIT’s days in Detroit are spent speaking and collaborating with producers such as Kenny Dixon Jr, Andrés, and Theo Parrish, finding new ways to push the music further. His nights are spent in his studio, producing, mixing or editing new material for upcoming projects.

Whether deep & twisted or time-stretched fine techno, Kassem provides the power needed on the dancefloor.
