One of the top techno DJs, Berghain resident and owner of the label Klockworks. With a strong competence to adapt his music to the circumstances, he can create an unique atmosphere in a room rather than just playing. The Berlin born DJ Ben Klock’s sounds are full of consistency, tension and dynamics.
Berlin-based DJ, producer and label boss Dax J grew up listening to the UK sounds of jungle, drum and bass and garage. His passion for techno has dominated his powerful sound but his old jungle influences are still evident on his DJ sets and productions.
This German duo started making music since their childhood. Today, after several singles and releases with artists such as Rødhåd, they are part of the label Monkeytown.
The Ghost In The Machine is a project by Frank Nitzinsky and Nils van Lingen. Their fresh take on techno and their razor sharp production swiftly garnered them support from some of the leading names in the harder recesses of techno and ultimately culminated in Ghost in the Machine being added to the roster of Perc Trax.
Resident DJ at club Basis and the infamous Nachtcollege nights; Jorn Luka knows how to move a crowd. He has got the support of many big names in the scene and even played back-to-back sets with artists like Ansome and Gary Beck.
Being born in Caïro with both the Egyptian and Dutch nationality, Karim Soliman learned to navigate through different cultures. After moving to Rotterdam he started his career as a DJ and began to organize illegal raves that quickly drew huge attention of Rotterdam's youth (nowadays known as event company Give Soul).
This Rotterdam local has been on the rise for quite some time now and has established himself as one of the harbour city's most promising tech-house artists at the moment. Known for his groovy sound, he will surely break down the stage like he breaks down Rotterdam's nightclubs week in and week out.
Renowned for his 30 years of experience in the field, Michel de Hey is a worldwide respected DJ, producer and the owner of his own HEY! Imprint. His weekly radio show inspires young DJs till this day, and his own club nights shake the floors all over the Netherlands.
Fairly new to the scene, but already way ahead of his game, Remco Beekwilder is taking the world by storm. The Dutch DJ/producer has been releasing EP’s steadily on imprints such Monnom Black, Self Reflektion, and Binary Cells over these past three years, while also playing gigs all around Europe. With his energetic and deep sound, clearly rooted in techno, Beekwilder has already marked his own place in the scene.
This summer we are back with the 4th edition of our outdoor festival.
RDM, Rotterdam Directiekade 32, 3089 JA Rotterdam, Netherlands
The outdoor stage will be located alongside the river Maas, overlooking the industrial port. A big warehouse will replace the infamous festival tent. This location also offers us to expand our festival by adding a proper 3rd techno area.
Rotterdam is Rave. Rotterdam is Techno.
