// BEC //
Named as one of the Top 10 Leading Ladies of the Underground last year by Pulse Magazine along with being snapped up by the almighty Pan-Pot who recognised BEC’s rare talent to join their roster of world class DJs under the Second State imprint is no surprise when you look at her career in music so far. It may have only begun a short time ago, but in just a few years she's accomplished more than most hope to achieve in a lifetime. Brighton born, London bred, and now Berlin based, by her early twenties BEC has rocked floors at top clubs from London, to Hong Kong, to Berlin and Barcelona to name but a few. Becoming a firm favorite with club crowds and the industries elite the world over isn't an easy task, but with her infectious charisma and a vividly distinct sound spanning the vast spaces of grooving, cerebral Techno, BEC is able to do it with ease. Now it's time for her to transport her undeniably contagious sound from live set to release. Her upcoming debut EP 'Relentless' via Second State is already getting rave reviews from some of the trades biggest names. BEC is just getting started and if her record thus far is any indication, we can expect her to be at the forefront of the scene for many years to come.
// S L F (a.k.a Stephane Lefrancois) //
started his music career in the early 90's, playing drums for various ensembles in Paris where he was born. After moving to Canada, he spent some time perfecting his recording engineering skills, and is now producing in London, releasing on labels such as Compost, !K7, BBE, Tuskegee, KMS or R2 Records, and DJ gigs at Lightbox and Ministry Of Sound.
Stephane's love for percussive instrument is apparent when listening to his music. So is his fascination with dense, complex, evolving synth textures, and...effect units! As a performer, SLF has built a hardware – only live set, featuring deep house and techno grooves, latin percussion, infectious vocals and melody lines. His sets are built from his extensive library of unreleased material, mixed with groovy, soulful and melodic techno. Expect a driving, uplifiting and original blend that will make the crowd dance.
Soon with his new EP on Endless Music.
// Rockaforte //
The Italian Luca Olivotto aka Rockaforte is the man behind Endless Music but also a talented producer and DJ. His productions and sets, supported by prestigious names like Hot Since 82, range from deep house, tech house and melodic techno but experimentation has always been at the forefront of his ambition. His last EP "Monologue" was just released and already received the applause of magazines such as Mixmag.
// Derek Marin //
Derek Marin has been a staple of underground music for over 20 years and could easily be defined as one of the hardest working human beings in techno. As a talented producer, his tunes saw the light on mighty imprints like: Get Physical, Little Helpers, Subtrak, Nervous and of course Endless Music. He is currently working on new productions that will be very soon released on the label.
You got it, this night will be about independent and beautiful electronic music!
