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.

AIROD

Hailing from Paris, Dario Brkic aka AIROD is perhaps one of the finest incarnations of what the French techno scene can bring to the table when it comes to turning any cold-walled warehouse into a proper coal-fired furnace. A shared bill with Belgium techno ace Amelie Lens at REX Club would soon seal Dario’s fate, prompting Lens to get him on board on her highly reputed Exhale parties across the Globe, of which he’s since become a mainstay.

Lee-Ann has been passionate about the creative arts for as long as she can remember. From an early age music and singing have been her greatest passions, starting with her involvement in her school choir.
