Amotik

After moving to Berlin in 2014, Amotik has been steadily building a base in the city that significantly inspired him. Starting in 2015 with a series of EPs on his self-titled imprint, he was soon regularly featured in the Groove Magazine and Resident Advisor monthly charts. Having developed a unique style of hypnotic/atmospheric techno with a relentless raw undertone, his consistency as both a DJ and producer has seen him perform at some of the most exciting clubs and festivals around the globe.

Anfisa Letyago

Anfisa has been cultivating her own unique and sophisticated sound, moving away from the more commercial edge of her early beginnings and embracing her love for underground House and Techno. Recently this rising star has caught the attention of  Mr Carl Cox who has been supporting her music regularly in his DJ sets and as a result he has given her the space to do 2 EP-releases in 2019 on his acclaimed Intec label.

Charlotte de Witte

Belgian DJ and producer Charlotte de Witte has amply proven her skill in the studio and behind the decks. On stage de Witte charms techno heads with her natural ease, composure and expertise. Making it almost look easy to play the biggest stages in the world. Her own studio productions have proven to be intense, addictive and downright impressive, captivating sounding labels like Novamute and Mary Go Wild. Her curriculum vitae of credentials is simply mind blowing: An Essential Mix debut on BBC Radio 1, a passage at Boiler Room, the cover of DJ MAG and continuous support by Resident Advisor, MixMag and XLR8R. She also impressed the crowd at Rotterdam Rave in the past with her own style of uncompromising and headstrong techno.

Cynthia Spiering

Cynthia is a rising, young techno producer/dj from Dordrecht who provides some hard techno with an old school sound. Her ability to expertly combine upbeat melodic cuts with driving percussion has brought the talented artist across the Netherlands.

Dax J

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.

DYEN

DYEN is Dutch techno producer/dj. He started with producing techno back in 2016. He had several releases on Otomo Records and a remix on Raven sigh. After these releases he created his own sound inspired by 90's and uptempo techno.

I Hate Models

Descended from the dark depths of the French rave scene, I Hate Models is known for exploring all the outer edges of music, from electro to a harder industrial sound. With an artistic line based on the expression of melancholia and intense emotions, his music can be characterized by a showdown between Love and Hate, Darkness and Light.

Imogen

UK techno princess Imogen showcases quality techno at every gig. Expect a bass in your face mentality with a clear concept behind the story she wants to tell in her set.

Inhalt der Nacht

Inhalt Der Nacht is a Berlin based producer, defined by a singular sound imprint inspired by cold wave and new wave beats. Through his productions, Inhalt Der Nacht, give us his own interpretation of EBM-fused Techno. He has already been noticed by well known artists as Dax J and created his own label called "Lebending".

Kobosil

Born and raised in the working class district of Berlin Neukölln, his musical aesthetic is shaped not only by his upbringing but also the cathartic energy of EBM, noise and industrial. Aside from releasing regularly on Berghain's in-house label Ostgut Ton, Kobosil also runs his own R - Label Group imprint, which he uses as a platform to promote releases by upcoming Berlin producers at the forefront of a bleak and riotous approach to dance music. It’s this combination of the dark and ecstatic that is at the foundation of Kobosil’s powerful approach to techno.

Onyvaa

California native, DJ and producer, ONYVAA is one of Europe’s newest imports known for her driving melodic techno with Detroit influences and raw analog touches. Based in Paris, France. ONYVAA’s brand of no frills and movement provoking techno landed her on renowned stages like Rex Club, Café d’Anvers, D! Club Lausanne, Future Frequency Festival, Cercle at Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace and l’Institut du Monde Arabe alongside DJs like Pan-Pot, Luke Slater, Amelie Lens, Charlotte de Witte, ANNA and Bambounou.

Paula Temple HYBRID LIVE

Noise Manifesto|R&S|Axis Records The Lancashire-born, now Berlin-based DJ and producer Paula Temple blurs the line between production and DJing running through dozens of tracks, edits and clips in one set. The hybrid DJ sets the artist performs are powered by the innovative live performance midi controller MXF8, which she co-developed and took on the ‘Mind and Machine’ tour for three years.

Rebekah

Rebekah is a DJ and producer from Birmingham, England who has been active since the mid-'90s. Like most figures of the Birmingham techno scene, her tracks are often hard, dark, and minimalist, with heavy pounding beats and gradual suspenseful development. An avid clubgoer since her youth, she began spinning records in 1996, at the age of 16. Anyone that has seen her play knows first hand that there are no gimmicks or clichés about this Producer/DJ, just unadulterated raw talent and a passion for the music she plays.

Stranger

Tipped as being one of Rotterdam’s best kept secrets in techno, DJ/producer ‘stranger’ moves in mysterious ways and has quickly proven to be one to watch. His first musical appearance in 2014 was quickly picked up by established names as Dave Clarke, Sven Väth and Marcel Dettmann, giving to his career as well as to his own Self Reflektion label a major kick-start.

ROD

ROD, the alter-ego of Rotterdam based Benny Rodrigues, currently one of the most popular and inspiring electronic music artists of the Netherlands. Known for his versatility, Benny has chosen this additional artist name to clearly define the more Techno oriented side of his musical identity. Where Benny seeks breadth, ROD goes into the depths. Expect techno with a versatile touch; Detroit to Chicago, from acid to dub, from industrial to offbeat. His knowledge of music, undying love for techno and sharp taste got him at the most populair techno hotspots around the world, the iconic Berghain (Berlin) included.

999999999

999999999 are an imposing and inescapable presence at the vanguard of the hard techno scene. In the studio and on stage, the immediacy of uncompromising machine music collides with the unpredictability of improvisation to create an ever-shifting, forward-pushing energetic force. Every thunderous kick, daggering synth stab and twisting acid line is fired off with a clear-sighted intention – everything is pitched to elicit the maximum physical and emotional response from the dancer. There’s no middle ground, just an emphatic tribute to the hard, dark, deep end of the night.
