He has a raw passion and dedication for his craft, and has garnered respect from some of the biggest names in House and Techno. Get Perlonized, hosted and curated by Sammy Dee, is one of the most prestigious club events Europe-wide. It has a certain illuminating power up it’s sleeve, that can not be gained by promotional exuberance or by worshipping at the altar of capital return; but with musical consistency – keywords that encompass and define everything the Berlin born artist does. Sammy Dee is one half of the House project Pantytec who released their debut album “Pony Slaystation” in 2002 and toured around the world twice. Thanks to his splendid DJ skills he is resident in famous clubs such as E-Werk, Robert Johnson, Ostgut or Tresor.

In Berlin, the Austrian Duo co-founded the creative collaboration Untitled 100 with Argenis Brito and Thomas Grün in 2012. Foehn & Jerome are best known for their sets incorporating hidden treasures of rough and percussive house music into the ease of cutting-edge analogue elements that they record over endless night sessions in their studio in Berlin Kreuzberg. Vendi is a self-taught artist and multi-instrumentalist. After having this first relationship with electronic music, Vendi moved to Berlin, a city where he found his place playing records for the last decade in several of the capital’s clubs, as well as touring internationally.

Always the innovator and a maverick behind the decks, it’s a terrific experience.
