Dadub, a project founded in Italy in 2008 by Daniele Antezza, is dedicated to combining sound design and audio synthesis experimentation with the aesthetic and musical heritage of Bass Music and Dub. In 2009 Daniele moved to Berlin where he began a collaboration with Giovanni Conti. They founded Artefacts Mastering Studio and, under the aegis of Dadub, collaborated with the groundbreaking label Stroboscopic Artefacts, profoundly influencing the label aesthetics and musical output. In 2017 Daniele left Artefacts Mastering and founded his own Dadub production and mastering studio. Moreover, staying true to the collaborative nature which has always characterised the project, Dadub was re-launched as a collaborative venture between Daniele and Marco Donnarumma, renown Berlin-based sound artist, performer and producer. Berlin-based Tommy Four Seven has established himself as a leading name in today’s techno scene. The widespread reception of his DJ sets, a skill much refined during his early years as a resident of London’s Fire club, has seen him play at some of the world’s leading venues. Tommy’s sets invariably encompass a rich variety of styles, drifting seamlessly between the straight-up techno required of the hour, and his signature, more broken form that is laced through his ever-expanding discography. Tommy runs his own imprint and event series 47 and is one half of experimental electronic duo These Hidden Hands with Alain Paul. After releasing records on L.I.E.S. and it’s offspring Russian Torrent Versions, returning artist and Caserta-native Domenico Crisci quickly rose to prominence among purveyors of timeless Techno. A third record on Eerie cemented his reputation as a careful engineer of effective, crafty dance floor cuts that comfortably sit next to early works of the genre’s pioneers. Domenico gathered experience as a DJ for many years, spinning a mix of Acid and Techno with a puristic approach. Hong Kong native Yanling emerged in Zurich & Berlin‘s leftfield dance scene pushing a bass-heavy sound inspired by early grime and rave at a time when that mix of sounds had few admirers. Yanling mixes cyber techno sets with dazzling incursions of electro and breakbeat. Since early 2018 she has been a resident of Forbidden Planet where she has pushed a corporal sound characterized by jagged mixes and an uncompromising focus on the dance floor. In Globus: A rather discreet yet well-established figure in the German techno scene, Stefan Schmidt-Dichte aka Perm distanced himself from all kinds of hindering norms and standards that so often seem to shackle creativity when it comes to the club-related competitive edge of things. Consistently proving, record after record, that the tried-and-tested 4/4 grammar isn’t boring or unadventurous by essence, the Leipzig-based producer has collated a handful of grade-A releases for labels such as Holger, his own label DUR Records, Mana All Nite and Uncanny Valley’s offshoot Shtum, on which he released shtum 014 in September 2017. Perm is a wizard who simply knows how to leave dancers both dizzy and beatific. Kevin McAuley is returning UK artist Pangaea, who makes electronic dance music that draws its energy from the bleeding edges between sounds. Steering clear of the self-perpetuating feedback loops that often exist within established scenes, his tracks instead express the elusive and innovative qualities that characterize club genres in their infancy. The result is music which ranks among both the strangest and most banging dance music to emerge from the UK in the last decade. Pangaea’s vision is perfectly demonstrated on his critically-acclaimed debut album ‘In Drum Play’ which featured on numerous ‘best of 2016’ lists. In 2007 Pangaea established the Hessle Audio label along with Ben UFO and Pearson Sound, which has expanded over the years to become a unique and pioneering force in modern club music. We welcome back Niels Luinenburg aka Delta Funktionen, whose tracks on Field 02 and 04 are delicious techno works of intricate, moody forces. Also a resident at Amsterdam’s LET – les enfants terribles – Delta Funktionen is content to go about his business quietly, and the Dutchman now spins a genre-defiant blend of Detroit techno, Chicago-licked house, crafty old school electro and sparkling Italo disco at clubs around the globe. Gigsta is one of Cashmere Radio’s exceptional selectors, driven by a broad spectrum of musical knowledge showcased in her radio show ‘fictions’. Playing her unique style of house or techno in London, Paris, Berlin or beyond, we welcome Gigsta back in our home.
