Bio

It was in deepest darkest Somerset, south-west England, sometime in the early 90's when Nick first encountered dance music. Ten foot high speaker stacks, muddy fields and purple ohms. Groove, bass and positivity. A good time being had by all. Nick had to learn how to mix. Fast forward over twenty years and these positive things remain the cornerstones of Nick's DJ sets.

Since the heady days of Somerset, Nick has worked among many aspects of dance music, from independent record shops to legendary nightclubs Fabric and The End. A stint at a vinyl distribution company while running his own record label opened Nick's eyes not only to the business end of the music spectrum, but new genres, techniques and people. From experimental grooves to tight techy house, via stomping techno and future disco, Nick's scope is far and wide. He's had guest slots on radio stations including Ministry Of Sound Radio, Hoxton FM, Brap FM and more & he currently has his own monthly show on Aaja Music.

He's been on the same bill as many big name DJs including Scratch Perverts, Saytek, Daddy G, Cut La Roc, Terry Francis, Doorly, Evil Nine, Jem Haynes, Frazer Campbell, Meat Katie, Normski and Shy Fx as well as having residencies at London nights Versus, Tune Up and Bass[sic].

Nick currently holds a residency at Bank Of Switches and is a regular guest at parties such as Minimal Force, ETTG and Route One, so he can be found playing tunes all over London at venues like Shelter, Cafe 1001, Werkhaus, Last Days Of Shoreditch, Near & Far Bar, Aaja Deptford & The Souls.

Bio

During his youth german Ingo Zobel developed a deep passion for electronic music, which was further reinforced by his affection for computer technology.
He eventually started going into clubs, intrigued by the mixing skills of the DJ's.  In the late eighties he got into collecting all sorts of electronic music as well as recording mix tapes for his friends. A few years later in 1993 he started building a home studio for electronic music and began composing his own tunes.

Between 1996 and 1997 he and some of his friends organised several underground parties under the name "Spaced Out Club", him being the DJ and playing a wild mix of IDM, Braindance, Acid, Breakbeat, House and Techno. During that time he also founded the electronica band "Drøn" with his friends Christoph Abert and Frederik Dahlke, which is  his main music project since then.

From 1998 until 1999 he played several guest DJ sets at the "Orbital Jazz Club", which took place at the then quite famous german underground club "Cafe Kesselhaus" in Darmstadt.

In 1999 his career as a musician took shape, when Drøn was signed by the internationally known label Elektrolux, followed by the release of several albums and compilation tracks. Some of their music was featured on the german television programs "Space Night" and "Flow Motion". Drøn also played a 3 hour DJ set for the german HR-XXL Chillout radio program.

Since then he has released music under the names Drøn, Signalform (a Drøn side project), Self Oscillate (his solo imprint), Interconnected (a collaboration with Bakis Sirros of Parallel Worlds) and Datasette (a collaboration with Christoph Soehngen, not to be confused with John Davies' project Datassette). He worked together with lots of different labels in the past, more recently he released music on the labels Touched Music, Touched Electronix, Furthur Electronix, Mighty Force, Moatun7, Intellitronic Bubble, Neotantra, Neo Ouija and Fantasy Enhancing. Counting all collaborations and solo work, he has released a total of 13 albums and appeared on more than 25 compilations so far.

Bio

Andy wears his influences on his sleeve. His obsession with electronic music started in the early 90s. Listening to artists such as Altern8, the Prodigy, Acen and Brothers in Rhythm. Skip to the late 90s, while at university studying Physics, he finds himself immersed in the trance and progressive house scene. It wasn’t until the early 00s that Andy became addicted to the dark and pulsing rhythms of Techno when he first listened to The Youngsters Album ‘Lemon Orange’ and the classic Funk D’Void ‘Diabla’.All these influences are obvious in Andy’s music. Full of melody, deep pads and old skool stabs, Andy’s music tries to strike at the heart of the listener.

His first EP for Hype muzik ‘Spectrum’ gained support from some of the undergrounds finest talents , including Ian O’Donovan, Madben, Mars T, to name a few. His EP ‘We thought Kraftwerk Was Robots’ gained support and plays from many DJs including UK legend Colin Dale and Nick Warren. You can rest assured, as Andy’s sound develops, interest and love for the music grows. Previous releases included on Biotech, Stripped Digital, Xenology, Espai Music. His next release on attic 49 soon is called "Into The light", with a remix by his musical hero Funk D'Void.

Bio

Sven Kössler's musical roots lead directly back to the Frankfurt of the early 90s.

After gaining experience with his own series of events in the Rhine-Main metropolitan area and building up a certain reputation as a DJ, he regularly played in big clubs such as Paramount Park, Prodo X or the legendary Frankfurt Airport Club Dorian Gray at the end of the 1990s.
With the collapse of the trance and techno scene in Frankfurt, the passionate music lover took a step back from the DJ booth and began to search and collect all kinds of electronic music.

With the release of his first own track "Back to Living" on the Pete Namlook tribute compilation "Die Welt ist Klang" in 2013, Sven shifted his focus to producing his own music. Since 2019 he has released two highly acclaimed electronica albums on Lee Norris' label "Fantasy Enhancing" together with his musical partner Si Matthews. The solo album "Bck T• Lvng", also released on Carpe Sonum in 2019, immediately reached 3rd place on the annual best list of the worldwide electronica portal "TWGEEMA". His rather acid-heavy, club-oriented tracks appear on such cult record labels as Móatún7 and Mighty Force Records.
With his music he is also a regular guest of the German cult radio show "Grenzwellen" with Ecki Stieg.

After almost 20 years of abstinence 2020 marks Sven's return to the turntables. In addition to this exclusive guest mix for Fourier Transform, he founded the online streaming station "Safe Room" in March together with the British artist Pushkin, a project supported by Touched Music and Mighty Force Records for the collective musical overcoming of the Corona crisis.

Within "Safe Room", he started the show "What it's about...", a regular broadcast about all varieties of electronic music.

Kone-R is the man behind the Uncharted Audio record label, which has introduced the likes of Cursor Miner, LJ Kruzer, Langer, Ukkonen and plenty of other weird and wonderful sonic tomfoolery to the world.

Manning the turntables since 1992 when he discovered the joy of warehouse raves, the spirit of that era lives on in his sets today, with a liberal sprinkling of ambience, techno, breakbeats and plenty of low frequency oscillations.

Bio

Wil Russell - part label owner and recording artist "The Vast Profound", started buying records in the early 80's collecting the Street Sounds Electro LP's and some of the singles which featured on them.

After the Hip Hop scene took a turn towards more aggressive tracks he stopped collecting or listening to any music, until his interest was rekindled in the late 80's & early 90's with a new sound of breakbeats, techno, house, ambient and electronic music.

Raves and free parties further influenced his record collecting and DJ style. Fast forward to 2020 and he now has a collection of 8000 plus records and a huge knowledge of forgotten gems and underground musical masterpieces.

Deep and melodic is what you will be likely to get.

Bio

Mark Darby began his musical and political biography in history as an ex-punk, free festival activist (having briefly worked with the Stonehenge Free Festival Campaign in 1983) and later as a warehouse party organiser. This established connections with the early Eighties festival scene and involvement in organising free acid house parties which led to an informal partnership between a DJ and sound system collective based around the shop and Nottingham's DiY Sound System, with whom they collaborated to stage free parties throughout the South West during the early to mid 1990s.

In the early 90’s he became co-founder of the hugely influential Mighty Force Records, a record shop and techno label based in Exeter, Devon, South West England. The record label is best known for releasing Analogue Bubblebath by the Aphex Twin, and "My Splendid Idea" by Tom Middleton later of Global Communication, Jedi Knights, Cosmos and AMBA. Later releases included the hard to find Fog City EP by Darby and Matthew Herbert.

Although the store ceased to trade in 1995, the label relocated to London Mark continued to keep his keen musical ear tuned into the pulse of house and techno and continued to release music by deep house artists such as Peach Palf and the Classic / Music For Freaks recording artists, Luke Solomon and Justin Harris under the alias Robotic Movement until 1998. However after a 20 year hiatus The Mighty Force is now releasing music once again.

He now hosts a fantastic weekly mix-show podcast, which showcases new talent and classics and everything cool, techno, acid, electronic and deep.
