Schoppen Wittes’ groovy night Chili Fries series kicks off for another night of spicey house music, this time taking over the Globus Floor with some exciting international guests. Mark E is a DJ and producer from London. Back in the early 2000s, Mark E made his name with a series of re-edits on the Jiscomusic label. Those early explorations – long, loopy, glassy-eyed and chugging – effectively defined his distinctive production style. He returned to these roots in spectacular style last year, with a series of similarly minded edits under the E Versions alias on his own Merc Music label. A natural talent, since his 2011 debut full-length “Stone Breaker” Mark E’s rise has been slow but remarkable, finding his luxurious sounds among the best of house music DJs.

Jay Denham is the second generation Detroit Techno pioneer – musician, DJ artist and producer from Kalamazoo, Michigan – city right in the middle between Chicago and Detroit. His style is a unique blend of these two worlds – Chicago House and Detroit Techno, staying true to the underground, making the music for the art of it and always remembering where he comes from. A legend in his own right, whether jamming with Anthony Shakir or capturing the attention of Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson who released Jay’s first EPs on Transmat off shoot label Fragile, as well as the KMS label – Jay Denham‘s style remained unique and blistering.

Afrozoid was formed by the brothers Rafael Lopez (ex-Los 3 brasileros) and Phabian Edward in 2013, rescuing old influences of House and Techno of the 90’s. The main idea of the project is to bring all the knowledge that both of them had in the past as DJs, when they played at underground parties in the 90’s. The essence of their productions brings influences from the past to the new era of House and Techno. Afrozoid comes with a combination of Groove, Dark and Detroit. And also on the decks is Dust family member Caleb ESC, who is definitely making his techno sets known in the club scene around Berlin.
