HI DEAR FOLLOWERS,
ILLUSION SOUND IS COMING DOWN TO A SECRET WAREHOUSE IN SHOREDITCH TO CELEBRATE OUR 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY WITH A MASSIVE LINE-UP AND NEW CONCEPT.
Octave is an emerging techno artists in France - no real wonder since he grew up within a musical atmosphere and had his first experience with turntables in 2003 and thereafter concentrated more and more on a minimal approach to techno, which he started to produce by himself in early 2007.
After his first few steps into the techno field with some releases in 2007-2008, he was chosen by none other than Richie Hawtin to take part of the "Sounds From Can Elles" project, and saw one of his track released on M_nus by the end of 2008.
In early 2009 he started to develop his own Live and has had the chance to play in some clubs in Europe - including Tresor - with fantastic reactions to his sets on the floors and with fans.
These days Octave continues to develop and is constantly evolving. His music combines a deep-rooted foundation of techno underlined by stirring basslines and rhythms,glitch moments, and hypnotic background atmospheres.

Morgan Tomas is a DJ/Producer from France. He's also running the label Reloading Records and the weekly podcast with the same name.
In the past years, he has several releases coming out on labels such as Sleaze, Nachtstrom Schallplatten, Prosthetic Pressings or even Silent Steps and has been supported by great artists who often play his tracks.
Morgan's music is a deep rooted Techno, dark and energetic.
Chris Page is a London based DJ and music producer. He spent many years learning the art of mixing vinyl on crusty old turntables, slowly expanding and upgrading his set up when money would allow. Nights we're spent listening to the mixtures of the DJ's he looked up to. Weekends we're spent hopping from bar to club in order to soak up the music and land gigs. Success came and sets came at nightclubs such as Ministry of Sound, SE1 and Turnmills.
After a while, a desire to make his own mark emerged, and steps were taken towards starting to produce music. Years we're spent toiling away creating all manor of strange and abstract music. However in 2010 things shifted up a gear and the output from Chris's studio became more prolific. By early 2011 his first EP has been signed to Stuttgart based Fassade Recordings. The ball was rolling now and it wasn't long before Affin signed his 2nd EP 'Busker'. This EP grabbed the attention of Joe Mcgeechan (iFormat) who nurtured a certain sound from Chris, a sound that was right for the BCR label, and 2 more EPs followed.
2012 would see Affin release a 2nd EP from Chris,. One of which was to make a real difference to his profile. The 'Used EP', including a remix from Sweden's Mattias Fridell, charted high on download sites, and pulled positive feedback from many of the worlds leading techno DJ's. The EP proved so popular that it became Affin's first EP to be cut to vinyl. More releases followed on labels such as Gynoid, Translucent, Sonntag Morgen, and Shapeless. With a healthy release schedule behind him, Chris has gained a residency at London's VOID night, where he has supported artists such as Tommy Four Seven, Perc, Phase, and Ben Klock. He also is one half of Kontrol Room, an innovative DJ/Live set up he performs in with Dave Johnys.
2013 is sure to hold much more for Chris. With many remix requests coming in, and his own work being remixed by some high ranking names for future release on Rebekahs new 'Decoy' label, his profile is set to rise even higher.
