Audio Injection VS Truncate [Droid - L.A.]
65d Mavericks [Surface Records - London]
Doubleffe [Coma (live)rpool]
Coma is a completely new underground club night concept.
The guys behind it have always thought about putting up their own events because they thought there was not much of a musical choice for people.
Coma was born on the 3th of December 2010 in Liverpool [U.K.], enjoying a lot of success, as a platform for new and talented artists to develop and emerge alongside well known artists who hardly performed in the U.K. before and in whom we believe will bring a new emphasis to the U.K.'s underground Techno music scene.
Our goal is to bring you a party to share our love for Techno in all its wider nuances.
Our "homies" will be joined by various electronic artists who will showcase their love and passion for this particular electronic style of music once a month with various special guests.
Our desire is to achieve our goals in a tasteful manner, creating an atmosphere that can enable both devoted dancers and laid-back listeners to equally enjoy the sounds that we love, as well as helping them discover new and inspiring ones.
It’s now time to wake London up from the Coma in which it has been in as well!
For our first party in London we have prepared a killer line-up!

His Truncate releases have been getting support from big players such as, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Jonas Kopp, Chris Liebing, Speedy J, Dvs1, Luke Slater, Ben Sims, Silent Servant, Technasia, and many more.
With releases & remixes on labels such as Droid, CLR, Electric Deluxe, Sleaze, BluFin, Enemy, Impact Mechanics, Ground Factory and many more, Audio Injection continues to shape his own sound as well as collaborate with Drumcell to release more mind bending techno, putting Los Angeles & Droid Recordings on the techno map.
