ANDREA FERLIN was born as an artist in 1992 at the tender age of 15 and has been DJing with the most influential and recognizable faces in techno like Richie Hawtin, Ricardo Villalobos , Chris Liebing, Marco Carola for over 10 years now. In 2002 he began a fruitful studio partnership with his friend Dusty Kid as Duoteque.They released 5 records for a German label Boxer & their tracks appeared in important comipilations like Magda`s "She`s a dancing machine" on Minus, Crosstown Rebels ``Get Lost`` and of course every DJ worth his salt`s record box. The doors through which Andrea could develop & reinvent himself were open...In 2006 Andrea started to work alone honing his production skills with releases on Freak'n Chic, Mindshake, Religioaudio & Leftroom. Now over 15 years after starting his career Andrea has toured Japan (Womb, Mixroffice), Venezuela (Crobar, Solo), Australia (Circus), United States (Minimoo, Minitek festival) plus 3 seasons in a row as regular guest at the infamous Circo Loco at DC-10, Ibiza.Forthcoming is the release of his deeper, jazzy yet angular, tracky house project "Clarissa Hazel Duo" with Italian wunderkind Matteo Spedicati, to be released on labels such as Frankie & Tittbit in the near future. And there is clearly so much more to come from the Ferlin...
CYLO is a New York-based minimal/Tech DJ and producer with a driving beat and aggressively risky mixing technique in a town better known for its laid back style. He brings an enthusiastic stage presence to events throughout North America and Europe.
Talking about Cylo is talking about MGR - Cylo is the mastermind behind Massive Groove, an organization based in UK, Berlin and New York where he currently resides, he's played alongside some of today's biggest minimal techno artists in the US and Europe. "One of the most interesting lessons I have learned is that whoever is behind the decks in a club has total control over the moods of each person in the room. So how I then choose to play will, in turn, affect everybody else's mood. Quite a powerful responsibility, and one which must be treated with respect."
ARANA Founder and resident DJ of the Wobble parties at CIELO in NYC, Arana relentlessly pursues the purest forms of house and techno for the dance floor, with a penchant for funk, indie/rock, Brazilian and outerspace. He frequently champions lesser known masterworks - whether deep, twisted, organic, minimal/maximal - to inspire authentic movement and feeling on the floor.
Exploring thousands of tracks from underground labels all over the world, Arana carefully selects his musical building blocks to create unusual combinations of harmony, rhythm and melody, weaving together their common elements into energetic, tightly-executed sets.
Arana honed his musical ear composing on classical guitar and playing in rock bands starting at the age of 13. After moving to NYC to practice corporate law, he randomly fell for electronic dance music in 1999, began DJing in 2003 as he juggled life as a lawyer, and then launched the first Wobble parties at NYC's top dance music venues in 2004. He currently focuses on his upstart tech-house label, Wobble Music, based in the Lower East Side and his monthly party at Cielo.
