DJ Koze (GER)
Not many can stand taller in Germany’s electronic dance music scene than DJ Koze. He can rightly be described as one of Germany’s longest running servants of dance music, a foundation member if you like. The readers of Germany’s trend-setting SPEX Magazine correctly voted DJ Koze the DJ Of The Years for 1999 - 2004, and now the listeners of global dance music correctly calls DJ Koze one of the worlds’ best. His remix of Lapsley’s ‘Operator Please’ went nuclear last year, and with the recent release of his recent album Knock Knock, Koze is set to go number one on pretty much every planet just outside of earth. This will be his first Australian return in over 4 years.
Charlotte de Witte
In the short time she’s been releasing music, Charlotte de Witte has become one of the most exciting acts in techno (if not all electronic music) today. As we've seen on releases through Turbo, Suara, novamute and more, which include standout tracks like 'Closer' and 'Control', de Witte favours an intense, minimalist style of techno that emphasises dark moods, vocal lines and heavy drums. A style that has in turn, earned her numerous main-stage slots at festivals and events worldwide.
Gerd Janson is one of the most highly respected DJs in the world of house and techno. Quite often, “highly respected” goes hand-in-hand with “underrated” but over the past few years, audiences around the world have also found out what insider types already knew: Janson is a DJ that reconfigures the classics you already knew in an unexpected way – and introduce you to new classics, a few months (or years) before you’ll hear them played everywhere else.
