Karizma is a dj’s favourite dj, one of that rare breed that lift the art to a higher level. He absolutrley smashed Hustle's 2nd Birthday last year and so we just had to get him back without delay. Karizma aka Kaytronik is the master of the cdj deck and djm mixer, a true craftsman and the man that Pioneer choose to exhibit the very best their products can produce when it comes to straight up House music.
Not only is karizma one of the tightest House music djs on planet he is up their with the greatest House music producers of all time. Working alongside DJ Spen as ‘Spen and Karizma’, as part of the legendary Basement Boys, bringing classic tracks such as Crystal Waters ‘Gypsy Woman’ and with Jasper Street Company producing all time classics such ‘Lift Every Voice’. He has remixed such musical icons as Michael Jackson, Mary J Blige, Lenny Kravitz, Roy Ayers, Erykah Badu and Ultra Naté.
As a solo artist Karizma has had equal success, a man who's sounds are championed heavily by radio luminaries like Gilles Peterson, Benji B and classic djs such as Tony Humphries and Louie Vega.
Karizma is a dj/producer who has done it all but who is still as relevant as ever as he continues to push musical boundaries bringing unique dj trickery to the ‘Boiler Room’ generation and forging new contemporary House sounds in collaboration with heavyweight producers such as Dennis Ferrer, Deetron, Osunlade & Atjazz and working with great modern soul artists like Ben Westbeech. Expect a melting pot of sounds and magical technical skills as Mr. Kaytronik brings the heat to The Hold.

Living in Paris, Joss Moog is a DJ/ producer who started music as a child, developing a taste for composition on different kinds of vintage synthesisers.
Listening to funk, acid jazz and hip hop, he joined several bands playing the keyboards and composing songs.
He fell in love with electronic music in the mid-90s and his own production evolved in that way. He was influenced by artists such as Bangalter, Sneak, Moodyman, Theo Parrish and so on.
He worked on different projects at the turn of the century but really got involved in house music when he met Phil Weeks (owner of Robsoul Recordings) and worked in collaboration with him. Phil gave him the opportunity to release his first well-known EP, “Room 25”.
Since then, Joss has been standing up on the house music scene and he can boast a rich discography such as his other “Rooms” (26 and 27) on Robsoul and some releases and remixes on labels such as Minority, Magnetic, Maracuja, Syncrophone and Kinjo.
His musical experiments brought him to elaborate a particular sound and atmosphere that can be perceived in each and every set and production he does. Funky enough to make it into Jackin’ house sets, hard enough to wrap around some tech, and groovy enough for those soulful types to grab on for dear life.
