Artist Details

Chris Lake

Chris Lake taps into a singular spirit evocative of dance music's golden age by infusing funked-out grooves and natural instrumentation into decidedly modern house. It's a sonic aesthetic that instantly incites movement and has established him as a trailblazer in the electronic dance music world. That perspective also set the stage for his forthcoming full-length debut available on Ultra Music in 2014. At 14-years-old, the multi-instrumentalist discovered progressive house music, and his life... View More

Chris Liebing

Chris Liebing had his first Residency as a DJ in a small club called "Red Brick" 1991 in Giessen, near Frankfurt. There he was playing all sorts of music from Soul, Hip Hop and Pop to House. In 1993, buying his records at Downtown Records in Giessen, he discovered the more electronic side of music, and one year later, he decided to open up a Techno Club, called "Spinclub". Already beginning of 1995 the club had to close down and Chris began working for Eye -Q Records in Frankfurt. During that... View More

Claude Vonstroke

In this day and age of music cross-pollination, Claude VonStroke sits at the forefront of all that is good, proper and most importantly fun. He’s just as at home remixing Kenny Larkin or London Grammar as he is dropping multiple underground hits. DJ wise, his relentless touring of every major city, festival and basement after-party around the world has only enriched this unique perspective on music. As the owner of the record label, dirtybird, VonStroke also built an impeccable A&R roster signing acts... View More

Dubfire

From global success in the commercial domain, to equal accomplishments within the underground scene, Dubfire is an artist whose drive, talent and intuition have placed him within the top tier of electronic music artists in the world. He maintains this position within the industry with an unrelenting work ethic and a focused determination to innovate, evolve, and entertain. Whether it’s his involvement with Deep Dish, his solo performances at an extensive list of the world’s most influential clubs and... View More

Loco Dice

Rewind back to the start of the last decade when a teenage Loco Dice was a rapper and a Hip Hop Dj, playing support slots to Usher, Ice Cube, Jamiroquai, Snoop Dog and R. Kelly. The Tunisian Born Loco Dice soon became a very well known figure in his native German Hip Hop scene and as the scene exploded (becoming Germany's biggest musical genre, as it did right across the world) he did what any self respecting underground artist would: He switched to house music. But not any old house music: very sexy... View More

Richie Hawtin

Richie Hawtin lives an enviably stylish existence in an unlikely and unexpected place. His refurbished home sits across from a throbbing factory in a spare, industrial zone of Windsor, Ontario. The 97-year-old building was once a firehouse in the days when its firewagons were drawn by horses. But in the 21st century, what used to be a hayloft has been transformed into Hawtin's striking, uncluttered, red-and-black apartment; the horses lived directly below in what's now his state-of-the-art recording...

Seth Troxler

In accordance with Mayan prophecy, Seth Troxler was, in fact, a gift to Detroit techno from intergalactic house demigods from the future. Rumours that Seth Troxler is actually an alien are untrue; in the early first century these demigods kidnapped the virile first-born child of a Roman centurion and his Egyptian trophy wife. After years of travelling around the western end of the Milky Way studying linear algebra, Byronic verse, city planning, and the essentials of electronic music composition, these... View More

Carl Craig

Carl Craig is described as a creative visionary, a groundbreaking electronic music icon, an inspirational artist, an esteemed Grammy-nominated composer, a world-class DJ and an ambassador for his native Detroit. Yet the common thread that runs through Craig’s broad musical canon and creative projects is a resounding fascination with futurism. Carl Craig has cultivated a unique path as an artist, entrepreneur and civic leader, guided by his tendency toward forward thinking. Craig released his first... View More

Green Velvet

Using the Green Velvet moniker to make his singularly twisted, funk-flecked house and techno hybrid, it was as Cajmere that he made his first musical mark back in the early 90's after ditching school half way through a post-grad, chemical engineering degree at top-notch US college Berkeley. Up until then music had been a hobby fueled by cobbling together tracks on a "sixty buck keyboard, a cheap four-track and a cheap drum machine" while still an undergraduate at the University of Illinois. This DIY... View More

Soul Clap

Before today there was yesterday and after tomorrow is the future. Elyte and Cnyce´s paths were crossed for all time when a Sun Ra light beam sent from Saturn collided with the P-Funk Mothership and sent them tumbling to earth. Now, Soul Clap time travels on a musical spaceship of dopeness... The early years As children on earth, they were driven to understand the history of dance music and found their teacher in original boston disco DJ Caril Mitro who admitted them into the temple of Vinyl...

Tale of Us

All good music should tell a story. Tales of experience. Tales of joy. Tales of love lost and won. A Tale of Us. Tale of Us are Berlin-based DJ and production partnership Karm and Matteo who are currently re-writing the rulebook for deeply moving, emotional electronic music. Together they share a sonic vision that pulls together elements of house and techno with influences from pop, nu-disco and ...even rock music. While all of their productions are instantly recognisable as Tale Of Us, these range... View More

Hot Since 82

If you love something, they say, set it free. Even dance music. It’s only five years, after all, since Hot Since 82, current hottest property in house music, the man behind some of Summer 2013’s biggest anthems, gave up DJing and producing forever. Back in summer 2007, Daley Padley was staying with his mates in a villa in Ibiza, playing regularly at Amnesia for Cream and basically living every young DJ’s dream. There was just one little problem. “I didn't like that music anymore,” remembers Daley, half... View More
