Berlin-based synthesist and Berghain resident JakoJako made her recording debut on Leisure System in 2019 and has since released full albums, collaborative and solo, on Muzan Editions, Bigamo and WSNWG. Her Verve EP will be coming out on Mute on March 24th. Her work dwells on intricate soundscapes infused with ambient, electronica, atmospheric techno and melodic IDM. Dreamy with a lot of forward and forward-thinking momentum, JakoJako’s music focuses on the intrinsic possibilities within. Her DJ sets are sensuous, propulsive and transcendent onslaughts into techno and breakbeat territory, unafraid to mix in trance elements and moments of soundscape contemplation.
French producer Quelza, based in Berlin, is a craftsman of sophisticated dance music, producing hypnotic, sumptuous techno tracks infused with breakbeats, wayward moods and techno soul. With releases on labels such as Mord, Palinoia and 47, Quelza has made a name for himself as an unconventional, even thought-provoking techno artist that aims to break free of dance music stereotypes. His DJ sets are full of experiment, looking for a deeper and at times even more intimate take on driving and punishing beats and breakbeats. He is part of a young generation of techno producers and DJs that confront the genre with new ideas and perspectives.
Belgian producer Daniel(i) is now based in Germany and is known for running his own whispering signals label, next to releasing on Lowless Music, Pyramid Blood Recordings, etc. His musical output swerves around techno, dub techno, ambient and drone, making for a deep take on both the repetitive and meditative elements in his music. He is part of the NoName/La Nature crew that organises a yearly techno and more festival in the Belgian Ardennes.
Gråzon from Belgium is a DJ focused on the deeper end of both house and techno music. He runs the Off the Radar show on community radio Studio Néau.
Resident DJ action comes from EMS members Caspro, Herjodd and Salto Mortale
