1. Hot Since 82
With the release of his most recent mixtape Little Black Book, Hot Since 82 has been catapulting himself to the top of event flyers wherever he goes and escaping from the wing of individuals such as Maceo Plex.
A UK producer initially known for his prowess in the bass world, including his BBC Radio 1 show with Benga, 'Skream & Benga,' Oliver Jones has transformed himself in a disco powerhouse. Look no further than his performance on the Discotech stage at HARD Day of the Dead or his most recent release with Sam Frank.
3. MOOD Records
Nicole Moudaber has always been a prominent figure in techno, so its no surprise to see her name on the bill. What is a surprise however, is that with her label, MOOD Records, having just launched less than a year ago, has already booked the team a MOOD showcase at BPM. A good start indeed.
The brain behind Bromance Records has been very busy this past year. With some massive releases such as Gesaffelstein’s Aleph album as well as Louis’s own single, ‘Gimme Back The Night’ featuring Theophilus London, Brodinski has brought the Parisian label a long way. Having recently wrapped a very successful US tour with the beautifully talented Louisahhh, expect Brodinski to provide some dark techno and badass hip-hop vibes.
5. Claude VonStroke
With both the ‘Urban Animal’ album and the US tour alongside J Phlip, seeing major success, CVS comes South of the border on a echelon of prominence never before reached by the Detroit native. Dirtybird has never looked this good.
6. Matthew Dear/Audion
Although the bill may say Matthew Dear, its safe to say we can expect much of his Audion material on display. The cobwebs have been dusted off of Dear’s alter ego after some relative dormancy in years past. Lets go dancing.
Catz Eats Dogz
What do you get when you combine Catz n’ Dogz with fellow Dirtybird Eats Everything? Pure bliss... and also Catz Eats Dogz, the newest trio collaboration. Expect these three to hit the decks together on the Mexican beaches.
