Tomoki’s trademark fusion of deep, tech, electro, minimal and soulful influences has won him many admirers and he was the first ever Japanese DJ on Ministry of Sound Radio while also holding down a weekly slot on House FM. Simultaneously tough and soulful, dark and uplifting, - his style retains more than enough depth and technique to satisfy the fussiest of house-heads without losing the sort of funk and groove that keeps the dance floor rammed and rocking.
Yiannis Balkizas has already completed a first album and is close to completing his second on the record label, Grin Recordings. His DJ portfolio is arguably even more impressive, having entertained club crowds at the likes of Turnmills, Ministry of Sound, Pacha, SeOne, Hidden, Inigo and Babalou. Yiannis has also visited sunny Ibiza and played at boatparties as well as different bars with his style of music that ranges from tech house to his biggest love, techno.
