Elrow Image

Elrow

For the third year in a rowThe Spanish club brand Elrowwill take over indoor main room at 18hrs Festival.  The basic concept around this success concept from Ibiza and Barcelona is fun!
It is difficult to explain the ridiculousness of Elrow without you actually being there. Crazy themes, quality techno music, lots of confetti, and all accompanied by fancy dress play-acting on a level you’re unlikely to see anywhere else. It makes no sense and we love it.

44BASS Image

44BASS

With her roots in Munich, she early on  earned a residency at the legendary ‘Ultraschall’ in 1994. Proving to be a giant leap forward she started touring international less than a year later.

SPECIAL GUEST: H.O.S.H. Image

SPECIAL GUEST: H.O.S.H.

There are solid record labels and then there are recognisable musical collectives… brotherhoods who work together for the furtherment of electronic music. One such crew is based proudly in Hamburg; goes by the name of Diynamic and owes a large part of its success to German born Holger Behn aka H.O.S.H..

PIG & DAN Image

PIG & DAN

If you know the records form Spanish duo Pig&Dan’s , then you know that they are well known for producing and playing music that is far from linear. They’re always looking to push the envelope with genre-bending music and are devoted to creating something special that gets right under your skin and elevates the spirit, as a result, Pig&Dan (terminal M, Cocoon) are constantly spreading their word by playing at some of the best clubs and festivals worldwide week-in-week-out.

STEFANO NOFERINI Image

STEFANO NOFERINI

Known to have a golden touch when it comes to dance floor destroyers, Noferini is a shining example that true talent rises to the top. Beside his productions for Monika Kruse’s Terminal M techno imprint he is running is his own imprint, Deeperfect Records.
Deeperfect is bringing superior sounds to the masses with sexy tech inspired grooves penned by today’s most relevant producers. It is one of the most respected dance labels today, no question.

STEFAN BINIAK Image

STEFAN BINIAK

Berlin, the musical melting pot already has already brought a few artists to light. Now it is Stefan Biniak´s turn. A resdient of the city by the Spree he is a rather modest and quiet contemporary who for a few years now has preferred it to let the music do the talking. With success!  His „Read all about it“ edit has had over 10 million hits worldwide on youtube and got him the highest respect on the Belle Level of the electric musicians.

BRAM FIDDER Image

BRAM FIDDER

Bram Fidder is one of the most promising new DJ-talents of the Amsterdam house scene. Only 22 years old, he has already played almost every club and festival in the Dutch capital.

WAZE & ODYSSEY Image

WAZE & ODYSSEY

Uk duo Serge Santiago and Firas Waez, aka Waze & Odyssey, having the ability to channel the past into the present day while remaining contemporary and relevant is no mean feat. To then take one of RnB’s most seminal songs (R.Kelly’s classic ‘Bump N Grind’) and turn it into a modern-day classic is quite possibly even more of an outstanding achievement.

SIDNEY CHARLES Image

SIDNEY CHARLES

It might have come as a surprise to some that Hamburg’s Sidney Charles topped Resident Advisor’s Top 100 Most Charted Artists of 2013, but it’s an accolade that speaks volumes about both his approach to music and his prolific, consistent output. Born Sidney Charles Hurricane Vieljans (yes, really), his journey towards the world of house and techno began when he first started DJing hip-hop, soul and funk at the age of 15. Taking his cues from the golden age of turntablism and associated culture in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, his attentions were led towards other sounds of the era also enjoying their first heyday. His infatuation with those classic 4/4 club sounds is something that lives and breathes vividly in his music today.

FRIEND WITHIN Image

FRIEND WITHIN

With releases on Dirtybird, PETS and the mighty Disclosure’s Method Records, and a wealth of remixes for the cream of modern music talent including everyone from John Legend to MAUSI and Ella Eyre under his burgeoning belt, Friend Within is one producer that’s proved consistently difficult to ignore since bursting onto the scene in early 2013.

Arguably best known throughout 2013 for the monster ‘Renegade Master’ refix released in October on Method that soon soundtracked many an international Summer party, Friend Within has steadily enjoyed a growing wealth of support from all possible angles.

BENNY RODRIGUES Image

BENNY RODRIGUES

Having risen through the ranks like no other, the Dutch Benny Rodrigues has once again proved that Funk certainly isn’t outdated. Nonetheless he never underestimates the value of tech-house and techno creating a musical bridge in his sets through which he is currently mesmerising dancefloors in Europa!

A strong interest in different music styles like motown, soul, funk and hiphop surrounded him growing up. A couple of years later the deep Electronic Vibes of Gui Boratto and Nathan Fake impressed him deeply making him explore the house and techno scene. Diving deep into the underground house music scene of Utrecht, Locklead started to shape his own style.

U KNOW THE DRILL Image

U KNOW THE DRILL

Pulled straight from a rooftop house party, U Know & The Drill deliver bumping beats, house piano’s, vintage vocal shots and basses that are thick as sludge. With solid releases on Basserk and BMKLTSCH RCRDS, and upcoming releases on SlapFunk Records and Music Is Love Records, they are well on their way of realising their dream of becoming a household name in the scene.

ROBERT DIETZ Image

ROBERT DIETZ

Branching out to a solace voyage of creativity and sound, DJ Robert Dietz has been making waves yet again in the dance scene with his latest epic venture – record label ‘Truth Be Told’. The Berlin-based label aims for originality and creativity, boasting music with character.

BAREM Image

BAREM

Mauricio Barembuem (Barem) influenced by imprints like Perlon, Spectral Sound, Studio One, Ovum, 7th City as well as, of course, Minus, he began on a long journey honing his own unique sonic fingerprint.  His first release, the Kleine EP, on free internet label Unfoundsound Records in 2005 was responsible for kicking off Barem’s career. After a few online releases, Barem signed with Minus. More releases followed on Minus, as Barem style evolved from stark, digital and abstract into a more organic tech house sound as exemplified by his Kolimar EP. The successful releases were accompanied by appearances on major festivals like Time Warp en Tomorrowland.

LEON

30 year old LEON from Italy is a man that has been making major waves in the house scene since his breakthrough at the beginning of 2009. Bursting onto the scene with a bang, LEON has carved out quite a reputation in such a short period of time., and this looks set to grow and grow.

With over 10 years experience behind the decks, its not hard to see why LEON’s reputation as dj, which was outstanding in Italy before his productions broke through, have now skyrocketed in the past year.

Now, years later, his profile is beginning to rise around Europe having played alongside influential DJs like Zip, Rhadoo and Onur Ozer at clubs like Studio 80 and Paradiso in the Netherlands, as well as at places like Salon Zur Wilden Renate and Club der Visionäre in Berlin.
