PARA ONE Under the alias of PARA ONE, French electro producer Jean-Baptiste de Laubier has been known for his affiliation with French rap group TTC as well as a deep love for the ‘golden-age of hip-hop’ which along with his own productions had lead to remix requests from the likes of French-House giants Daft Punk (The Prime Time of Your Life) and Ellen Allien (Down).
AUTOKRATZ This London-based Electronic duo which comprises of David Cox and Russell Crank work together to produce a distinctly unique sound which boasts infectious bass hooks and insanely catchy vocals that have led to support slots for The Prodigy, La Roux and Crystal Castles to name but a few.
“The Kitsuné-approved duo deliver brutal bangers that would slip seamlessly into any Justice or Hervé DJ set.. …AutoKratz are coolly logical pop craftsmen.” NME
PAUL CHAMBERS Having played alongside some massive dance titans including Justice, Tiga, Erol Alkan, Boys Noize, Mixhell, and of course 2 Many DJs, his sets ooze with experience and panache and is certainly no stranger to a massive party.
SOUTH CENTRAL The unique, genre-hopping duo have set their sights high, as they manage to push the boundaries of Indie, Rock & Electro with their rapid succession of remixes for the likes of Metronomy, Klaxons, The Maccabees and Boy Kill Boy, which in turn has lead to the completion of two European tours with the Prodigy, collaborations with Gary Numan, Pendulum, A Place To Bury Strangers and the release of their debut album. Now they are here to tear up the dance floor, so be sure not to miss it.
TEENAGE BAD GIRL The French-Electro-House duo Guillaume Manbell and Greg Kazubski bring you smarter-than-average-electro and indie, said to be the genetic mix of Daft Punk, Aphex Twin and The Stooges with hints of Vitallic - the talented duo have become well known in the new ’French-Electro’ sound with releases on Record label, Citizen Records.
ACID WASHED These childhood friends create a self-proclaimed deterioration of sound drawing influence from souvenirs, friends, home studios and analogue equipment which in turn has resulted in the fusion of late nineties French house vibes and DFA disco touches, complemented by the striking, geometric visuals by Anthony Burrill which provides the hypnotic, focal point of their visceral live show.
LIGHTHOUSES Some bands choose to be the sum of all their influences, however Lighthouses choose to evolve from them - Joe Boyle and Richard Williams create beautiful harmonies with the use of man, machine, strings and synths fusing music of all genres, styles and ages, to make songs about life and modern love.
"Lighthouses deliver in spades that kind of rave state of grace achieved by the likes of Delphic, that kind of twanging dirty synth combo kind of like Fenech-Soler hitting Bloc Party with a dildo if you will!" NME Radio/Best of Myspace
PUNX SOUNDCHECK The partnership of John Taylor and Arif Salih brings together the music that shaped them and the music that’s shaping their future, traversing disco and house, reggae and dubstep, electro and (old) rave, all the while sounding effortlessly and elegantly modern.
ARVEENE & MISK Over the past couple of years the Dublin duo have clocked up nearly 30 genre-busting remixes for the likes of The Prodigy, Mr.Oizo, Felix Da Housecat, Kitsuné, Zombie Nation, Ed Banger, Gung Ho!, Turbo, Bang Gang [to name but a few].

DPPLGNGRS With their ability to effortlessly straddle everything from minimal technoid-bleepery and disco to house and bass, these heavy twisted party-starters and Hottwerk's powerhouse duo DPPLGNGRS have set forth to set fire to dance floors, armed with collossal beats and ground-shaking bass.
STUFFYA DISCO VS. T DUBYES Bournemouth born Rob White and Tom Dubyes rock the stage with their Electro-Dubstep stylings which will certainly leave you craving for more.
PETE CARVELL With a sound that is close to impossible to pigeon-hole, he is renowned as a hotbed of both indie and electronic with DJ's sets that sit comfortably in the realms of forward thinking house and techno.
TRONIK YOUTH Dj, Remixer & Producer TRONIK YOUTH (aka Neil Parnell) has certainly made a name for himself and with his unique Electronic-Disco sound has fast become a known as a ‘force to be reckoned with’, with three acclaimed singles released on the home of The Gossip and Chromeo, Back-yard Recordings and a highly anticipated debut album in the works.
