In an era of countless techno and house sub-genres, classifying Luis Flores’s sound is a difficult feat, and that is precisely its purpose. His personality and experience are present in every track he produces, where the normally inorganic techno manages to elicit large amounts of groove and sense of humour. Flores’s interaction with the machine becomes the listeners’ interaction with auditory landscapes of eeriness, altered states and paranoia. A minimal use of elements results in a rich spectrum of textures and a dark and trippy dance floor pull. Live shows, improvisational in nature, can last anywhere from 1-3 hours, resulting in a hypnotic exploration of the possibilities of electronic production.
Luis Flores has been producing electronic for close to 2 decades. Not only has Luis made a huge name for himself but he's also been at the forefront of a movement that made the city of Guadalajara, Mexico, a hot spot for electronic music production and events. At the centre of this movement was Nopal Beat Records, a label that created its unique brand of music, reflecting the quintessentially contradictory and dark spirit of Mexican nightlife. As Artistic Director of Nopal Beat, Luis worked with cultural authorities to produce a string of massive, free public events that could bring electronic music to a wider group of people. Besides providing a stage for local producers, he also worked with renowned international festivals, like MUTEK, to carry out their local editions, creating a meeting place for the most respected international artists and emerging local talent.
Combining years of experience with a fresh enthusiasm in a way that very few artists can, SPL aka Sam Pool turns audio expectations on their heads with his dynamic take on electronic music, producing a party sound informed by rock and combining elements of dubstep, neurocrunk, psychedelic, progressive, hip hop, house, techno and drum and bass. Fusing the shamelessness of old school rave music with an innovative approach to modern bass beats, SPL is devoted equally to immaculate sound quality and to the dance floor. A longtime lover of electronic music who began DJing at age 15 and making beats before that, SPL’s knack for entertaining and prowess in the studio has carried him on multiple world tours as a successful DJ.
Co-owner and Content Manager of Addictech.com and Addictech Records, Hypnotech has direct access to the leading artists and labels in upfront international underground electronic music. Focusing on booty warping bass heavy dancefloor transmissions, dedication to cultivating the finest in electronic music is obvious in every set. Becoming a fixture in the underground San Francisco circuit in 2000 and expanding from there to an international stage, Hypnotech has played an endless amount of clubs, outdoor festivals, and underground renegades with his hi fidelity sound. 2012/13 will prove to be an exciting year with the first original productions scheduled for public consumption, as well as many sightings planned including an extended tour through Australia's best club events and festivals.
Mr. Rogers' brain is a fun place to visit, but you might not want to stay for too long lest you get stuck in the intricate, syncopated pulse that oozes from it. Mr. Rogers connects with dance floors instantly with his totally unique style, and his "first and foremost, you have to have fun" dance floor ethics. His signature sound seeps out of every beat per minute, and latches onto your primal dance button. Mr. Rogers' sounds have long captivated the West Coast underground arts community, but now the secret is out, and this pioneering producer, is poised to conquer the far reaches of the dance floor with his twisted, psychedelic take on bass-heavy mid-tempo, and glitch-ridden breaks
