Sensu dj 3pm-5pm
One of the original minimal dj's from Brussels. Sensu's sets focus on the unexpected and can in some way even be called eclectic. Organising events with the Plain crew and with Manna, Sensu is a solid part of the Brussels underground scene, playing all over Belgium and spreading his very own take on the electronic music gospel.
Immer.Chic dj 5pm - 7pm
A project formed by Julian Jöckel and Gregory Schuchmann as a result of their enormous passion for electronic music. Since 1999, they have been producing a very diverse body of electronic music tracks, together with different musicians or just with synthesizers and a computer. As Midnight Opera their engaging dj sets are touch upon film music, 80's electronic punk, house, soul, etc.
Pub vs Pliiant live 7pm - 8pm
Well known for integrating any particular style or sound, Pub provides the melodies for the dissonant, percussive clutter created by Pliiant. On their only EP together, released on Ampoule, they reshaped the formulaic structures of electronica and experimental hip hop to set these genres back on track towards freestyle variation and improvisation.
Vakula dj 8pm - 10pm
Vakula was born in the 80's in a small ancient town called Putivl in the north of Ukraine. With his innovative and complex method of layering different rhythms and building song structures, he breaks with the traditional patterns of loop-oriented house music and shows how to produce tracks of the complexity that sometimes shows up in sophisticated jazz music.
Pliiant live 10-11pm
Pliiant just delivers beautiful, thoughtful music. No major pretensions - anything goes, as long as it comes from a place closer to the heart than to the mind. Early releases on Ampoule and Talent Hoover were characterised by atmospheric and densely layered Electronica. The recently released mini-album ‘Gnipps’ was an acoustic masterpiece and at the moment, his head is seriously into upfront stuff with a twist.
Screening of rüts DVD
In the second room at Faro, a selection of clips from the 'rüts' DVD will be screened. The DVD has been compiled in collaboration with Ampoule records from Glasgow and contains 25 videoclips & 6 short films and a special treat.

Will O´Brien dj 10pm – 1.30am
SUB-SCAPE founder, organiser and resident dj Will O'Brien, originally from Ireland and now based in Belgium, has been buying and spinning records since he first discovered electronic dance music in the late 1980s. Heavily inspired by the deep Detroit techno sound, he incorporates many other influences from electro to acid, house, idm and minimal into his dj sets.
Aardvarck live 1.30am – 2.30am
Together with Steven de Pieven, Aardvarck is part of the Rednose Distrikt Dj-Team which experiments with everything that ranges from broken-beat, leftfield techno, cut-up soul, hip hop or sample-slapstick-jazz. The producer's own material on Delsin Records largely consists of lush, melodic broken beat with the warmth of Detroit techno firmly in mind, while, for his Rushhour releases, he picked up one of his old loves: techno - with the dancefloor monster ‘Cult Copy’ being the highlight so far.
His latest masterpiece ‘Pigstyle’ came out as part of the Nod Navigators series on Kindred Spirit featuring 9 cuts of late night, head-nodding excellence.
Shed live 2.30am – 3.30am
After numerous 12”s on Soloaction, Styrax Leaves, Delsin and releases as STP and the mysterious EQD, with the strong post Basic Channel techno release ‘Equalized#001’, Shed’s debut album ‘Shedding the Past’ has been released end of this summer on the prestigious OstGut imprint, Berghain's very own label. On this album, he melts and merges rough and demanding dance floor skeletons with shockingly detailed melodies, harmonic structures, irresistible hooks and airy arrangements. He will be supporting his debut album live for the first time ever.
T++ live 3.30am – 4.30am
Torsten Pröfrock, aka T++, is the forward-thinking mind behind 12 years of genre shaping and (re)defining techno music out of his base at Hardwax in Berlin. From early appearances on the FatCat label under his Various Artist guise, to dub techno blueprint setting work on Chain Reaction using his Erosion moniker, via proto-dubstep as Dynamo, then onto his role as half of legendary production unit Monolake, Torsten's had an indelible impact on the course of techno and rhythm based electronica.
