LEE FOSS - BIO
Few DJs have made such a dramatic impact on the underground house and techno scene over the last few years as Lee Foss. Described by DJ Mag as “one of the most talented new forces in modern dance music today” and by fellow future house innovators Art Department as their favourite producer, Lee has firmly established himself in dance music’s collective consciousness. Lee and his Hot Natured band mates Jamie Jones and Infinity Ink are currently leading a whole family of like-minded producers that includes Richy Ahmed, WaFF, Digitaria, Robert James and Miguel Campbell, who are currently re-writing the rulebook of how to make evocative, emotive house music. In 2010 he was the highest new entry into Resident Advisor’s key Top 100 DJs poll, entering at number 38 and by 2011 he had climbed to number 18 in the chart.
In 2012 Lee Foss completed his Radio1 Essential Mix to much acclaim and has been nominated for Essential Mix of the Year. Having hit the UK top 40 with ‘Benediction’ as part of deep house super group Hot Natured, with genre-spanning hits such as ‘Electricity’ (with MK) and ‘Reverse Skydiving’ under his belt, alongside remixes of chart topping artists such as Rudimental and Lana del Ray, Lee Foss is one of the most exciting forces in modern house music. Not forgetting Hot Creations, the groundbreaking label he runs with partner Jamie Jones, which is arguably one of the world’s most innovative house labels. His unique sound, born out a lifelong love of classic house, 90s hip hop, 80s electro and Detroit techno, has earned him fanatical grassroots support from clubbers in both Europe and North America.
ANABEL ENGLUND - BIO
Anabel Englund, acclaimed lead vocalist from the alternative band, Hot Natured, is stepping out. A well-known cult performer in the house music community, her lead vocals first landed on Lee Foss and MK’s hit “Electricity” gaining momentum and critical notice. While she garnered international attention for her collaborative work, it was “Reverse Skydiving”—the haunting, beautiful track from Lee Foss’ and Jamie Jones’ band, Hot Natured—that catapulted Englund and the band into international recognition. Englund’s live energetic performance was infectious, galvanizing audiences worldwide. “Something else takes over me,” she says. “It’s one of the times when I’m the most in my body but not at the same time. I love being able to channel into something that I don’t do everyday. It’s not just that everyone is watching…I am watching them and making eye contact with different people. It’s super special. It’s a really intimate experience that I love.” A native of Southern California, Englund started her career writing for ABC Family TV. Her passion, immediately influenced by the electronic dance community, she quickly became immersed in the scene.
Her rich, sultry delivery is undeniable. It is her distinct, audio signature that has brought her into her own solo career. In late 2016, she put out a cool, house vibe with “London Headache” on Defected Records. Her smoky vocals tell a story of love and youthful abandon over a carefree beat perfect for poolside sunsets or scenic canyon drives. She'll tap into a similar energy on a forthcoming EP. Englund has a sonic truth she seeks to share through her own art and performance. Her vocal elocution is always smooth and calming, even as it dances on a dynamic beat. She's ready to tell her musical story of human connection and positivity through fun, colorful chords and driving beats. By taking a more hands-on role in the production process, she captures the energy and vibe of the music that lives in her mind. Recently, Englund landed another hit: Gari Safari, a touring one-size- fits-all party series she helps curate with her brother and friends. It is all about the beauty and diversity of live dance music. Whether turning up in the south Florida sun at Miami Music Week or going late night in New York City, the Gari Safari is a late night DJ scene that serves memorable, high-energy experiences with 100 percent live vocals and hours of original music. “The theme is to let your inner animal shine,” she says…which is exactly what lies at the heart of everything Englund touches. Whether she's performing at Glastonbury or a dark warehouse in her native Los Angeles; in the studio laying down new tracks for her

As co-founder and A&R of Touch of Class Records and the new PillowTalk Music imprint, Michael Tello is a man who wears many hats in the music industry. From DJ, artist, producer, live performer, promoter, engineer and teacher, he has undoubtedly carved out a distinguished place for himself amongst his peers in today's electronic dance music community.
Michael’s love for DJing and music production started in Los Angeles at the early age of twelve and continued to ripen after completing a degree in Audio Engineering in San Francisco. His inherent passion for promoting and hosting events got thrown into the mix, founded on the importance of creating a space where people feel safe and can freely "dance like nobody's watching.” This methodology was the inspiration and concept for his brand and award-winning weekly party, Housepitality, going strong now for eight straight years and becoming an institution for local, domestic and international artists, dancers and patrons in San Francisco.
His greatest success to date is accredited to writing, producing and performing live with the eclectic electronic ensemble, PillowTalk. Formed in the summer of 2011 in the Lower Haight district of San Francisco, PillowTalk's music fuses house, disco, classic R&B, soul, funk and boogie with indie dance. With over ten releases including their 2018 sophomore album, “All People” and seven live tours around the globe, this project has received notoriety from fans, press, music venues and festivals world wide.
Additional compositions and productions embodying his love for jazz, funk, R&B and Latin rhythms can be found under his solo artist name, Michael Tello. His other live production/DJ duo, Signal Flow, has received praise for their collaborations with vocalists Kevin Knapp, Gustaph (Hercules and The Love Affair), Navid Izadi, Gretz and Michael Tello himself. To top it off, the artist’s newest moniker on the horizon, “Lil T,” realizes an uncensored and deeper side to his productions and will be breaking out of its shell later this year.
With an extensive discography under his belt including releases on: Life & Death, Visionquest, Crew Love, Wolf + Lamb, Kompakt, Jive, Culprit, Leftroom Limited, Om Records, Smoke N’ Mirrors and Roam Recordings, as well as remixes for Groove Armada, Kasper Bjork, DJ Tennis, HNQO, Laid Back, Soul Clap, W+L, Nick Monaco, Life On Planets, Tone Of Arc, PillowTalk, Navid Izadi, Midnight Magic, Future Generations, Set Mo, B.Bravo and Lonely Boy, there is no doubt that Michael will continue doing what he loves and is most passionate about, music.
The man of many hats’ latest endeavor is a project he holds close to his heart -a newly finished production, recording and mixing studio in Brooklyn is scheduled to open this year to the public with the mission to teach and mentor youth in the art of DJing and electronic music production.
