ETHYL (Quintessentials / Cecile)
Hailing from the leafy home counties and connecting with music at a young age, Tim Hopgood AKA Ethyl, displays a musical knowledge and affinity for the groove far beyond his 25 years. Like many of todayâ€™s finest, while constantly looking forward, he has one eye placed firmly on the retrospective. First taking to the turntables at the age of 13 and gaining his first residency as soon as the law allowed at 18, Tim has tapped into the mentality of the dance floor, crafting impeccable selections for hypnotic effect. These skills have seen him win slots at the Capital's underground hotspots, across the UK and at Ibiza's most prestigious venues before a production had even dropped.
This synergy with the dance floor soon began to find its way from the decks to the studio, when after completing a sound engineering degree, he began to realise his own unique vision of house. Whether on solo excursions or in tandem with pals Flori or Huxley, productions that bear Ethylâ€™s name are raw joints, both sonically complex and rhythmically commanding. The eclectic approach of Ethyl's productions are maintained by a deep groove, with nods to early 90s US house & garage and effortless glimmers of Detroit.
STRIDE & ANDY LEMAC (Remote / Tekdisko)
"Stride (David Downing) has been spinning tracks from a very early age and his love for electronic music and DJing has evolved with experience in all the music mediums. Nowadays Stride's passion is channeled into mixing and producing beat driven occasionally melodic house and techno with deep and tribal vibes. He believes that music can take it's listener on a journey of the mind and he expresses this with varied sets including quirky sounds, intense highs, deep baselines, emotive vocals, live instruments, live effects and more...
Having recently released tracks on Flumo, Remote Records and many other labels the future looks big for Stride!
Like Stride, Andy Lemac's love affair with electronic music began at an early age. At 17 he discovered his greatest passion was behind the decks, fusing tracks together, building his sets with long mixes influenced by artists from the deep Leftfield to the upbeat styles of Danny Rampling.
Having also been signed this year to Remote Records and most recently Stab Recordings Andyâ€™s solo and collaborated productions have been turning heads. Focusing on melodic, minimal and percussion based genres he always keeps his music original and deep sounding using the latest production methods and techniques.
He is founder and co-owner of Tek Disko, which was started up with good friend Stride. They are both now currently in the process of developing Tek Disko into a digital record label with plans for many more deep underground releases.
In the smoking area of the musiquarium, there will be a range of real fruit Shisha available alongside a few debauched surprises...
