Cari Lekebusch is a Stockholm-based sound architect alongsides other Swedish Techno profiles like Adam Beyer, Joel Mull, Alexi Delano and Jesper Dahlbäck. He has borne many pseudonyms over the course of his illustrious career. His first releases were on his inaugural label Hybrid Sound Architectures, which later became known as H. Productions (a.k.a. H-Prod) and the eventual expansion of his studio created a core platform for his artistic visions, as well as numerous sub-labels. Cari Lekebusch continued to create excellent techno music, leading to appearances at top international festivals, events and clubs, acting as one of the best ambassadors of “Swedish Techno”. Fellow Swede Andre Kronert: analogue warmth meets raw energy. This furious mixture made Andre a synonym for powerful and high-octane club sound, as a DJ as well as a producer. Since 1994 the head honcho of Odd/Even, Night Drive Music, 3rd Wave Music and Neurotron Music, he has set on fire countless parties and festivals, proving himself to be a major reason for escalating atmospheres and bursting dance floors from Dubai to Georgia. Tresor resident Esther Duijn lays down a dazzling techno set in support. In Globus: returning artist Derek Plaslaiko quietly paid his dues on Detroit’s rave circuit from his nearby home town, and quickly earned a reputation for forward thinking DJ sets that were clinical, sophisticated and extremely sensual. This combination resulted in a residency for Family, the weekly party at Detroit’s legendary Motor. Some will know Derek Plaslaiko as a favorite of the mid-90s Detroit warehouse scene, which lead to a personal invite from Carl Craig to appear at the inaugural Detroit Electronic Music Festival in 2000. The now Berlin-based artist, famous worldwide for his 12-hour sets, is an electronic chameleon who expresses a passion for music that over-rides the usual trappings of the modern DJ industry. Eric Cloutier has established himself as an influential underground figure purely off the back of his DJ sets. Known to be able to tease and control crowds for extended periods of time without resorting to cheap thrills or lowest common denominator kicks, since first emerging in 1996 the acclaimed native Detroiter has been a resident at some of the most knowing venues around the world. These include local hotspots in his native city, internationally acclaimed clubs in his current hometown of Berlin but also mythologised places like The Bunker in New York, and Japan’s esteemed Labyrinth festival. House, dub and techno are all fair game for Cloutier, and be they deep and driving tracks or harder hitting selections, every one bridges the gap between the old and the new in seamless and unpredictable ways. As well as being involved with The Bunker NY label, his first productions and remixes have been snapped up by Studio-R, Freund Der Familie and Steve O’Sullivan’s influential Mosaic. It’s no wonder Eric Cloutier’s deep, airy and atmospheric music is turning out to be just as essential for those who know. Since moving from her homeland of France to Berlin in 2005, Bloody Mary has made quite a name for herself, or rather, for her dancefloor seductress alter ego. As a world-class DJ, she has traveled internationally, launched her own label Dame-Music, and started a new project “The Jaydes”, a Berlin-based project comprising of two friends and studio partners – Bloody Mary & Attan, releasing their full-length “The Jaydes” in 2014.
