In her short but aspiring career, Lindsey Herbert has continued to drift towards the darker realms of techno, constantly honing her craft as a DJ and getting involved with the thriving scene in San Francisco. Fast-forward to 2017 and Lindsey has truly become a recognized name in her city and beyond, in large part thanks to her unique signature sets — true journeys that explore alternating soundscapes laced together by dark, deep and heavy textures, spatial melodies and relentless, gritty undertones. With tour dates that have brought her to international venues playing beside top name DJs, she is an artist to watch. Michael Kraus is Sphera De Noumenon, a DJ and part of the Equations Collective. In the last years he contributed to Berlin’s scene with interesting bookings for the Never Fade parties. The Equations Collective, which consists furthermore of well appreciated artists like Artefakt, Lapien, Metropolis and young guns like Cyspe, Archaic Space and The D, is dedicated to those who cherish dancefloor focused improvised live sets. Hardware porn and intimate vibes served for all life-long improvisers, as they call it quite rightly. Both of these dynamic new talents are welcomed and hosted by our techno resident Marcel Heese, who provides a power set for this New Faces edition.
