Sherelle

This London-born DJ is considered a pioneer of a new generation of ravers that crave high-speed sound and energetic bass. Sherelle’s DJ set is lightning fast, guaranteeing a 160 bpm cross between crave jungle, drum n bass, footwork and juke. She was a resident at BBC Radio 1 for two years in a row and her debut EP, 160 DOWN THE A406 was labelled ‘one of the year’s most exciting production debuts’ by Resident Advisor.

 

Ploy

UK-based Sam Smith aka Ploy is known for his hypnotic sound. His style is influenced by UK bass and techno as well as baile funk and dancehall. You can find Ploy on lauded labels such as Hessle Audio, Timedance and Hemlock, and discover a discography full of experimental techno with a touch of polyrhythmic drums to a trippy effect.

 

AliA

AliA, also known as the princess of the Belgian underground, is driven by her passion for a variety of genres. She is a resident at Horst, and you can find her regularly at C12 and Kiosk Radio. Her sets bring house, UK garage, breakbeat and jungle to the dance floor.

 

 Enter Zeitgeist Freedom Energy Exchange ( ZFEX )

ZFEX, the brainchild of Australian drummer, Ziggy Zeitgeist is known for bringing futuristic funk-jazz with four-to-the-floor beats and punk. The drummer is considered a staple of the Australian music scene, being the driving force behind funk-jazz collective 30/70. In 2018, ZFEX became a meeting point between dance music and improvisation. ZFEX brings a live band experience that creates a synthesis of dance music in human form. The live band brought countless jazzy club bangers and support from Giles Peterson, Kamal Wimmiams, Byron the Aquarius, and Alexander Nut.
