✦ Pre Silent is a producer and live performer from Gaeta (Italy) based in London. He started his career as a DJ playing and organizing private parties and raves in his city. In 2013, during his residency for Movemind, he went to study in Milan and he started his own business as mastering engineer for underground producers and bands.

He has been described as a ‘Dark Futurist’ artist and is renowned for captivating his audiences with a branded mix of analogue synth hooks and infectious beats.
✦ Fairground of Tears is a concept that is categorised by the darker, industrial and more energetic tones of the techno genre. Years of experience in electronic music of all colours partly through his former alias and alternative electronica project Ne Plus Ultra along with hunt for expression ultimately leads itself to the Fairground of Tears concept and Exiled event series. The latter playing host to Melania, Operant, Violet Poison, Codex Empire, Inhalt Der Nacht to name a few and establishing itself as a premier and forward thinking events series. In that very same vein his own sets and productions are not fully bound by any specific style. Consequently an eclectic mixture of dense industrial textures and atmospheres as well as electronic body music can be expected in his mixes and productions.
✦ Twang is using elements of Techno and Electro, he has carved out a provocative experience for the uninhibited and propagates a bold, high-energy sound in each of his sets. He has been decimating dance floors in shady corners of London’s East End for some time. Fusing elements of Techno and Electro, he has carved out a provocative experience for the uninhibited and propagates a bold, high-energy sound in each of his sets. Cutting his teeth in Cape Town’s Fiction, TWANG's eclecticism has developed into a distinct artistic voice and his newly formed residency Shoes at Vogue Fabric’s has already achieved notoriety.
✦ Dahc Dermur VIII “dj sets are musical paintings set to performance”. From the runway to alley ways, through the dark and light, smoke and flames... Dahc Dermur VIII has risen above and is a force and talent to be recognised ... the New York icon has gone global and taken the UK by storm, leaving London smitten begging for more. A walking piece of art where flesh melts into canvas, Dahc operates on mystery and contradiction shattering stereotypes and extends a multi media xtreme xperience whilst under his spell of unique xsquisiteness...
