Carmen Electro hails from one of the most Northern parts of Europe; the icy country of Finland. She fell in love with techno and the underground when living in London, which later brought her to Berlin, and placed her from the dance floor to behind the decks. Her aries personality drives her to constantly test her limits, and to get competitive with herself all while having a cheeky giggle. Partly due to her excitable personality, Carmen can’t commit to just one format and despite the fact that she’s recently seen playing vinyl-only, she also enjoys playing longer digital sets. When it comes to her selections, the past year has seen her focus on sets that feature elements of late 90s/early 2000s hardgroove as well as modern big room techno with mischievous energy. In the absence of clubs in the past two years, she also took on producing and has been spending time developing her sound which combines ingredients of old-school percussions and moving bass, dub techno, and a hint of rave brought together at around 145bpm.

Since his early childhood Arkan has been questioning things; the mysterious influence music exerts on its listeners, the origin and explanation for this most powerful form of the transmission of emotions. It is an enigma that occupies him until this day and which has kept him hungry, yearning to discover new musical pathways. His almost scientific approach to music making – a sort of harmonic grooves research – has led the young musician towards a sound characterized by its raw and stripped-down minimalism, its uplifting harmonies and its emotional depth. The music of Arkan is beautifully vague, open to interpretation and allows the listener to embark on his own mental journey, wherever it might lead. It is no surprise that his tracks have been well-received, finding their way into podcasts and sets from established artists as well as onto the esteemed SK Eleven label of Setaoc Maas, where Arkan released his own Skalter EP. As co-founder of the label Autonome Records and founder of Drawner Records, Arkan aims to push the sound he has become known for and to further develop these platforms as creative outlets for both himself and other promising artists!

Growing up in Tel-Aviv, Kashpitzky was etching out his musical path as a guitar player in a metal-core band. At some point though, he traded amplifiers for drum machines and really turned on the heat. His involvement in “V-DOOY”, hosting illegal raves in Tell Aviv between 2016-2018 allowed him to dedicate himself to finding his own sound, while his three-year residency at the Bootleg Club secured him gigs in the biggest venues the city has to offer, from the Block to the Alphabet Club and the Breakfast Club. In order to complete a formal musical education in sound design, Kash relocated to Berlin and graduated from the SAE Institute. He is one of those DJs who you can’t clearly pigeonholed in terms of sound. Always changing, always banging, he has a track for every occasion, letting even extended sets never get boring. His unique definition of techno is perhaps best exemplified in his energetic, deep but yet groovy productions, often combining broken beats with organic textures. In this regard, it is worth noting his release on Shlomi Aber’s Be As One imprint, as well as his contribution track to a various artists compilation of Volster’s Secession label. His tracks are often supported by heavyweights such as DVS1, Ben Ufo or Marron and Triangle Agency recently invited him to one of their Hör showcases in Berlin. With releases coming up on Insolate’s Out of Place (including a Tensal remix), Developer’s Olympian and a return to the Be As One imprint with a solo EP in 2022, the future looks busy and bright for this promising artist!

RÆZA’s fascination for electronic music emerged in 2018, yet he has always lived in the world of music since his early childhood. Born in Madagascar and raised in France, RÆZA’s earliest influence was that of his Malagasy origins. This changed at some point when he left his traditional musical background for unchartered, exciting new territory. Not soon after he made his Austrian debut, co-founding his own collective “Klangangriff” with friends of his from all over Europe. Then in late 2020, he joined the Dresden based Queer Collective Rawmantique, with which RÆZA had at this point already collaborated on projects like the queer audiovisual experience Haus of Raw as well as some Hör showcases and club gigs. Apart from that, he has already performed in every major city in Europe. RÆZA prefers techno, and the techno he prefers is fast, textured and sexual. For him music is a powerful vector and he deliberately harnesses this power to create a mood on the dancefloor, be it emotional, sensual or downright erotic. Most important to him though is the exchange of energy between the DJ and the crowd, the delicate dialogue that makes every set of his something special.
