SQUAREPUSHER, the great & everlasting WARP artist, will bring over his breakthrough DJ set, with very special visuals, to make this party go into far future. Always one to test our senses and make the crowd dizzy, Squarepusher will lead us to the world of unknown music, where drum and bass finally melts with jazz in a never-ending music score. Meet the dark star!
OMAR SOULEYMAN, the Syrian artist who will exhilarate our blood and make our hearts beat with rhythmic explosion of tuneful dance. His music is where ancient meets electronic. In the very center of the Balkans, with immigrants from the Middle East fluctuating our streets, Omar will be the one to take us into a journey to discover our inner dancing self!
HANS JOACHIM ROEDELIUS is the legend we want to listen to this year. One half of the legendary Cluster, the pioneers of ambient music and Krautrock, Roedelius will give first a lecture about the beginning of electronic music in a pop world, and then play a memorable show that will take us to his unique spiritual exploration of solitude.
RASHAD BECKER, mastering engineer and vinyl cutter at Dubplates & Mastering, a company founded in 1995 by the legendary Berlin label Basic Channel, is also the author of some of the most inspiring noises in the world of underground abstract music. Wild explorations of distorted sounds we don’t want to miss out.
