IWTFA & GRID w/ Ness [TGP|Mental Modern] + X CLUB.
He began his electronic music journey in the late 90's and his evolving interest and passion soon encouraged him to start a dj career experimenting with various genres – from trance to pure experimental. With a background in sound engineering and many years of research and fine-tuning, he gradually developed a distinct personal style with a strong focus on atmosphere combined with hypnotic vibes. In 2007 he opened his own record store in his hometown in Sardinia (Italy) and 2 years later he founded his first label - Mono Records.
Acknowledged for his individual style, Ness has worked with labels like Phorma (Sweden), Synewave (USA), Dynamic Reflection (The Netherlands), M_Rec Ltd. (Italy), Informa (UK), Prologue (Germany), etc. and collaborated with artists like Claudio PRC half member of The Gods Planet, Deepbass, Attemporal, Rasmus Hedlund, etc.
Currently he is running TGP - an independent platform established since 2010 with Claudio PRC.
Ness music and dj sets are well accepted and defined as an exploration of wide range of deep and hypnotic techno and ambient soundscapes.

•X CLUB -
Born through a desire to experiment and push the boundaries of modern club music, ‘X CLUB.’ is the project of Brisbane based production duo Ben Clarke and Jesse Morath. The two creatives individually made a move into the Brisbane electronic music scene via their previous solo projects sharing club stages with numerous Australian and international producers. After playing a spontaneous back to back set and discovering they shared an equal passion for a rather more raw and experimental side of electronic music, the two joined forces and never looked back.
Drawing on major influence from the iconic sounds of the 90’s warehouse rave movement and modern experimental artists such as Bjaarki, Objekt, Skee Mask, Charles Murdoch, PTU and Clouds. Clarke and Morath have quickly developed a unique sound. Meddling with elements of techno, house, breakbeat and electro, X CLUB’s production is forever developing and refuses to be tied down by genre. While the duo’s arsenal of tech-heavy reworks of dance floor classics have earned them global online attention, their rather uniquely dynamic and energetic sets are quickly gaining a powerful reputation among the scene. This momentum is only set to grow with the seemingly imminent release of X CLUB’s debut EP.
