The concept of Repeat Eater is to bring pure analog warmth on stage and to your speakers at home. Using only hardware units such as modular synthesisers, sequencers & drum machines, Julien Guillot (formerly known for his breakcore act Stazma) is creating a web made of all kind of electronic music – from IDM to acid and from ambient to electro; the whole thing with a pinch of noise and punk attitude… let's plug in and see what happens!
Ben Pest has established notoriety as an exponent of jacking live hardware-based techno, playing shows at festivals and clubs including Boomtown, Don’t, Uglyfunk, Balter, Glade, Suicide Circus, Berghain, Griessmuehle and Bangface. A Producer, DJ and performer, he has numerous vinyl releases on labels such as Varvet, RIOT Radio Records, Mindcut, Don’t, I Love Acid, Asking For Trouble, Horror Boogie, Bonus Round, Victim and his own labels OverworX & Panic Bridge.
He is also member of 8-piece band Pest who have had several releases on Ninja Tune. He also collaborates with Luke’s Anger as Bebop and Rocksteady, their initial 12” release on Lost in Translation was followed by EPs on Bonus Round Records and Off Me Nut Records. In 2006 he collaborated with Cristian Vogel, what came out of these hardware jams was The Black E. Their output consisted of a twistedly jacking 12” on Sleep Debt and a CD on Seed Records, as well as gigs in London and Berlin.

CXNCXR aka le Crabe
Le Crabe is a performer whose music escapes conventional definitions. His Hip-Hop/Noise creations, sprinkled with Breakcore and Industrial sounds, are highlighted by a firmly Punk-Rock performance and outrageous humour – to be taken with a pinch of salt. He will be playing his doom / noise set called CXNCXR for even more distortion. His last EP is available on VOYDER (voyder.bandcamp.com).
FEDKA THE IRRITANT
Too batshit for the techno scene, too techno for the squeaky bonk crew, Fedka the Irritant rarely gets booked.
When he does get booked though it’s rough and funk filled techno with live effected trombone interjections seeking notes or non notes that might make you shit yourself.
Bring fresh underwear and an open mind.
Live improvised rhythmic electronic music made with hardware.
HACKNEY TOWN HELL
Hackney Town Hell is a computer controlled DJ going to bring to you a selection of acid, techno and breakbeats.

All elements used are self-produced, mixing different techniques, analogue and digital, such as hand-drawn animations, pattern design, drawing, typography, photography and videos.
Hyperactive videojammer, maximalism colour frequencies representing the lumens. Playing with Resolume… Comps, decks, layers and effects you’ll be sucked into a visual vortex – pixel perfect my style is complex!
