Drøp is the music project of sound designer and engineer Giuseppe Bifulco.
Considering sound as a bundle of informations that deals with psycho-acoustic and music therapy, his music is a combined outcome of digital synthesis/processing, acoustic instruments and manipulation of electronic circuits that crafts a thin, rarefied and abstract environment, a dream-like dimension, an empty set of micro-sounds, glitches and convulsed rhythms.
After his debut on Arboretum in 2014 with “Vasundhara EP” his work has been released on labels such us Farmacia 901 and Dromoscope with his last“V.I.T.R.I.O.L. EP”.
Mogano is the moniker of the electronic music producer and imprint founder Marco Berardi.
Based and active in Berlin since 2012, his sonic work is developed around retrieving and processing traditional musical instruments, soundscapes and polyrhythmic drums textures. Exploring techno, ambient, experimental and bass music spectrum both as Dj and Live performer, his music has been hosted at Contort (New Codes Berlin Atonal), Freqs Of Nature (Germany), Flussi Media Art Festival (Italy), Tresor (Berlin), Krake Festval (Berlin), Objeckt (Warsaw), RoBot Festival (Italy), Gegen (Berlin), Prozac 2.0 (Krakow), Suicide Circus and many others.
Since 2013 he is also curator and co-owner with the visual designer Andrea Familari FAX of Arboretum, a Record Label focused on Audio/Visual experimental works.
(Arboretum, Inner Surface, Haunter Records)
Honzo is a project of the Italian born and Berlin based Artist -Davide Carbone- founded out of his keen interest in human psychology.
By incorporating submerged futuristic-breakbeats, haunting cinematic soundscapes, cutting edge modulations and the whole dark palette of sonorous sounds, Honzo is figuratively painting a dramatic, yet post-apocalyptic and to some extent brutal and hopeless world’s fragment. With his distorted, drony and hallucinatory recordings Davide is definitely building a new musical perspective to techno music. It can be heard at Honzo’s debut 12″ record In A Bipolar Disorder which was released in the late 2013 and on his own Mini Lp “Das Unheimleiche”released on Haunter Records and on the compilation “Replicants" for the British Label Innersurface Music.
(Samurai Music Group)
Samurai Music Group label owner, artist mentor, events and radio show runner, Geoff Wright aka DJ Presha's list of accomplishments and roles within the music industry are hard to number. Even more impressive is that he has been a forerunner in each of these disciplines, firmly entrenching himself within the sonic architecture of drum and bass culture worldwide.
Through his 10 years old Samurai Music Group, Presha has served as a guiding hand in the growth and development of a new scene and sound that enumerates high profile releases from artists such as Fis, ENA, Grebenstein, Pact Infernal, Ancestral Voices, Homemade Weapons, Clarity, ASC, and many more.
Tetsumasa is a Japanese electronic music producer originally from Nagoya City.

Currently based in Berlin since 2016, he signed 'ASA Ep' on his own Vinyl imprint 'SAIDAN' followed by his debut on tape for Arboretum on “Obake EP” which accurately portrays the passage from his former industrialish and noise attitude into a more organic and deeply cinematic sounds-aesthetic .Lately his Live Performances have been hosted at Urban Spree for Libel Null Berlin, SuperDeluxe (Tokyo), Griessmühle (Berlin), Soup (Tokyo) and Spazio Rita.
