Back after some years absence, the legendary Tresor X-Mess party is back with a delightful line-up to help you usher in the night before Xmas eve. Maral Salmassi’s music career began in 1997 when she founded her first label Konsequent, on which she released music by artists such as Jay Denham, Christian Morgenstern, Fanon Flowers, and Alexander Kowalski, among others. In 1998 Maral co-founded the Cologne-based Techno and Electro distribution company Formic, which served as one of the most radical distributers of Detroit Techno and abstract electronica and was the sole European distributor for many underground labels. After a long hiatus Salmassi has both relaunched the Konsequent label and resume production work. A frequent guest in our home, head of Paso Music and resident DJ at Airport in Würzburg, as a DJ, producer and label-owner Marc Miroir has been around the scene on a national and international level since 1993 and is therefore far from being a flash in the pan or a one-hit-wonder. Quite the contrary is true, like regular top 20 rankings in the annual Groove-poll as most popular national DJ or bookings by the big stages like Nature One, SonneMondSterne, Rave on Snow or Thaibreak prove. Marc understands to contribute a special touch to every party by a mixture of charisma and a particular choice of music. Music made for dancing, created by hypnotic, groovy and sometimes also strange sounds, is his first aim. After moving to Berlin in 2007 Marc Miroir released numerous well-received EPs and finally in 2012 his full-length album “Hitting Home” was released on Paso, setting the path for this unique artist. Another returning artist Italian-born Francesco de Luca received early inspiration from heroes Masters At Work, Larry Heard and Ron Trent, moved to Berlin and quickly assimilated the German techno influence into his own understanding of DJing and production, crafting a versatile sound that reveals a sophistication akin to DJs more than twice his age – Francesco de Luca remains to be an artist to watch. Currently based in Berlin, Hypervactivist is a Venezuelan DJ who enjoys making unlikely mixes using differents styles of electronic music, working with a lot of Dub+Bass+Electro+Techno and playing with the tempo to generate contrasts, driving the clubbers into a really sweet party mood that stays up the whole time.
