As a tastemaker, educator, sound designer, and Motor City Proponet, Mike Huckaby has done much for Detroit electronic music. The man behind the once legendary Record Time store has gathered an encyclopedic knowledge of music.

BASIC SOUL UNIT
Hong Kong born and raised in Canada, Stuart Li aka Basic Soul Unit has been steadily making his mark in underground electronic music circles since his first release in 2003. Stuart grew up listening to Toronto’s college radio stations and attended after hours parties playing underground house music. He later worked at Cosmos Records store which dealt vintage Jazz, Soul, Funk, Latin, Brazilian, Disco, House & Hip Hop to crate diggers both local and from abroad. Reflecting his diverse interest in music, Stuart's house & techno productions can swing from lush and soulful to crunchy and jacking . He has released and remixed music on respected labels such as Nonplus+, Dolly, Philpot, Mathematics, Mule Electronic, Versatile, Ostgut Ton, Créme Organization & New Kanada. The end of 2012 saw the the release of Basic Soul Unit’s first album “Motional Response” on Chicago’s Still Music to great critical acclaim. Cassy recently included 2 of Stuart’s tracks on her Fabric 71 mix CD for Fabric London. 2013 also marks the inaugural ep release of his own label Lab.our which he started with long time friend Jason Ulrich.
As with his productions, Stuart's strength as a DJ is his versatility. Depending on the night and the crowd, he can
throw down melodic techno, heavy jacking and industrial sounds, deep house, disco, and often a combination of
these. Basic Soul Unit has also been performing live over the last 2 years. Stuart’s live set expresses the rawness and honesty of his productions. Expect soulful melodies and squelching acid basslines intertwining with rough hewn beats & jacking rhythms.
The “fantastic conundrum” of In Flagranti is a disco symphony created by Alex Gloor and Sasa Crnobrnja. Inspired by their love of the pioneering Cosmic dance scene that emerged from 80s Italy and an eclectic bag of genres including “Funk, Rock, Punk, Afro, Electronica, House, Reggae, Kraut, Classic, Blues and Hillbilly”, the pair have been working together for the past decade, creating joyful and mind-bending sounds.
Good Room resident Lloydski is back in the Bad Room with his record bag filled with gems and jams to keep us dancing all night long. The man behind 'Dinner with Lloyd' on The Lot Radio and one third of TIKI DISCO has been kicking it around NYC for 13 years. Growing up around DJs, he was influenced by everything from The Human League to experimental jazz to disco. His favorite record is still 'Is It All Over My Face' by Loose Joints, but his best records are the dollar records he found digging around town at places like A1 or Academy.
Soramimi is defined as “ a mishearing or feigned deafness. She regards her music as narrative imagery, with a sound illustrated by cerebral textures and dreamlike compositions. She brings a distinct fluency and gravity to the table of experimental dub techno. With a slow, pummeling rise into everyone’s sonic awareness, Soramimi is definitely one to watch.
NE SILEAS aka A. Radovski
Andrey Radovski is a DJ, producer and sound engineer, who relocated to NYC from his native Belarus in 2003 to pursue his passion for electronic sounds and the eclectic music scene of the city. DJ’ing out since 2006 and organizing groundbreaking Sound Noir parties with his friends since 2009, he is known for blending disco, house and techno spanning past 40+ years of dance-floor history. However, Ne Sileas is a brand new pursuit. Much of the inspiration for Andrey’s output under this name is derived from his work on film sound design and music, and in fact some of these compositions have already found a place in experimental and sci-fi film soundtracks. Conjuring up imagery of dystopian industrial societies and eerie dreamscapes through the lens of heavy cyberpunk romantica, Ne Sileas is about visiting a place that you might not want to become real.
