MARC ROMBOY [Systematic Records, Bremen]. 3hrs+
A true pioneer and dance music heavy weight, Marc Romboy has had a influential role in underground music for over a decade through his work at Systematic, Alphabet City, Terminal M and many more labels.
Electronic music with a certain break dance appeal - reminiscent of old school Chicago dance floor insanity - is Marc Romboy’s true passion. Romboy has co-founded and built internationally respected dance-music labels and projects, never tiring of coming up with fresh and innovative ideas to push the limits of electronic sounds.
Through both his solo releases and his collaborations, Romboy has also released on labels including Ovum, Simple, Brique Rouge, Superstition, 20:20 Vision and more. A regular collaboration is that with Romboy and Stephan Bodzin, the two have released records together on Systematic, 20:20 Vision and Bodzin’s own imprint Herzblut, with ‘Atlas’ and ‘Callisto’, being two of their biggest.
Romboy is one of The Likes Of You favorites and never fails to get the crowd into an uncontrollable frenzy, be prepared.
AGORIA [In Fine, Lyon] 3hrs+
The man otherwise known as Sebastien Devaud wasn’t bitten by the dance music bug until he was out of his teens, but once he began hunting imported 12”s from the US and Germany in his native France, there was no turning back. His production career began in 1999, with his debut album Blossom and first compilation following in 2003 – and it was clear even in those early days that a serious new talent was emerging. Blending the throb and groove of deeper, stripped-back techno with a keen sense of musicality, emotion and atmosphere, his sound transcends beyond mere dancefloor disposability.
His 2nd attempt at his first ever visit to OZ will be blessed with more fortune (we hope), don’t miss it.
CHEZ DAMIER [Mojuba, Chicago]
A now legendary figure in electronic music, Chez Damier has played close witness to many of the pivotal moments in the development of house and techno. Jointly responsible with partner Ron Trent for Prescription Records – widely recognised as one of the greatest labels of all time – Chez Damier carries abound a piece of the soul of house music.
In 2009, the last year of the decade Damier found a trusted outlet for his talents. A series of releases for the German label Mojuba signalled that he was on his way back to show the young pretenders the way. With momentum building behind him, Chez Damier will be exploring fresh artistic avenues in the new decade and looking to consolidate his legendary status as a DJ.
SUPER FLU [Monabery, Germany]
Feliks Thielemann & Mathias Schwarz - that´s Super Flu!!!
