Ben Klock

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.

Ghost In The Machine

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.

Joyhauser

Joyhauser holds up an arsenal of hard-hitting beats accompanied with captivating and melancholic strings. Their sophisticated array of refined sounds can truly be recognized in both their sets and productions. Eventually, they somehow always find a way to bring a unique analog epos to the listener, which is the exact reason why Joyhauser is still one of the key artists of the FloorFiller collective.

Karim Soliman

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).

Rowen Clark

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.

Kobosil

Max Kobosil, born in 1991, grew up in Berlin in post-Wende times of structural change, he discovered Techno when it emerged from sub culture into modernity, from an early stage he was determined to contribute his share to the city and genre as well as coining both.
