If we were to write a who's who of modern techno then this man would undoubtedly be one of the first names to spring to mind, year on year he makes it into RA's top 10 DJ list, without ever been stamped with that "commercial" label. Klockworks head honcho & Bergain resident since 2004, Ben Klock has more than made his imprint during the development of the sound during the last 10 years. His sets are lathered with deep, soulful grooves to contrast the dynamic tension brought about by the industrial characteristics of the archetypal techno sound - an impressive physicality of Ben Klock’s great art and skill.
Crosstown Rebels rise to notoriety has been something quite meteoric - and Maceo Plex has played an affirmative role in their development as a label. After releasing prolific works on such labels as Treibstoff, Dumb Unit, Cocoon, Audiomatique, Modern Love & Mothership, his popularity as an artist has grown to something quite extraordinary.
Last up on the bill is one of the most innovative producers to immerge from the UK in the last 5 years. Formally known as Ramadanman, Pearson Sound has managed to run & co-ordinated a successful record label (Hessle Audio), produced some of the most forward thinking tracks of our time along with creating one of the best Fabric LIVE mixes ever to be released - a feat some could only aspire to have fulfilled by their mid twenties.
