Shameboy, Danger, Fenech-Soler
Mochten de Stubru programma's Mekka en Republica nog bestaan, Fenech-Soler zou niet weg te branden zijn uit hun playlist. Catchy en dansbare synth- en electropop die meer dan zwaar genoeg weegt om het makkelijk langer dan enkele luisterbeurten uit te houden. Singles Lies en Cult of Romance hebben de weg naar het publiek al gevonden via het internet en leadzanger Ben deed de vocals op de Paper Romance track van Groove Armada. De groep speelde samen met Erol Alkan, A Trak, Crookers en Chew Lips en rijft de remixopdrachten vlotter binnen dan Slangen overheidsopdrachten.
Hou Fenech-Soler in de gaten!

Shameboy kwam in maart met de nieuwe single Blastermind op de proppen. De voorloper van hun derde studio-album, dat 808 State of Mind heet. Shameboy heeft na twee albums in alle grote zalen, clubs en festivals van de Benelux gespeeld en zorgde voor Bijdrages Aan De Dansgeschiedenis met Rechoque, Strobot en Heartcore.

Fransoos Danger is een nieuwe leerling uit de Franse rave- en electroschool die er grafisch design als keuzevak bijnam. Hij remixte voor zowel Kanye West als Empire of the Sun, en ook voor Sébastien Tellier, Lil John en One Republic. Denk aan Franse 8bit (huit bite ;-) ) en cartoons.

Warren Suicide

Warren Suicide
Berlin-based electro punk band Warren Suicide see themselves as an audio-visual art experience and artist collective which does not follow any clear scheme or old structures. Cherie (Vocals & visuals) and Nackt (vocals & guitar) are the core of the band, performing their music live on stage with various musicians who are friends of theirs. Therefore, any additional member of the band is a variable, which even underlines the uniqueness of the band and every single concert turns into an unparalleled event. Their music is Electronic that rocks. It's romance which sinks its poison teeth deep into your flesh. Warren Suicide originated 2003 in a loft in Neukölln, Berlin. Two men, Nackt and Fremdkörper, were working on songs in the studio, they were looking for a sound, a character. Cherie was sitting in the kitchen, heard the notes and drew a strange figure onto the paper in front of her. A small face appeared in, the outlines slightly contorted, the body of the slender figure, asexual, thin arms and legs. It smiled carefully, the teeth looking like those of a fish, the eyes with the look of a new-born baby, but wide open. Warren Suicide was born. Next door, the first song was created, starting with the words: "Hello, hello, my name is Warren Suicide". Ever since then, the musicians, the music and Warren existed, unseperable also in reality. Warren is no invisible band member or some cartoon character as it's the case with Gorillaz - he is an essence, he activates the musicians - Warren Suicide lies somewhere between the imaginable and the apprehended.

autoKratz

autoKratz
Since storming onto the UK music scene in early 2009, London based duo autoKratz have swiftly merited a reputable and solid name for themselves from the start: With their distinctly unique sound which boasts infectious bass hooks, insanely catchy vocals, compulsive beats and slices & bleeps and comparisons to Digitalism, this electro-duo quickly caught the ears of certain BBC tastemakers such as Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Pete Tong and Steve Lamacq who helped spread the gospel and gain support from the likes of Tiga, Erol Alkan and Brodinski in the clubs. Shortly thereafter, the Parisian electro-pioneers at Kitsuné snapped them up to release their full length 'Animal in the Fall of 2009 in Europe, prompting the band to embark on a widely successful tour, recruiting legions of hardcore fans across Europe in the electro underground scene with their formidable live shows, securing them as one of the most sought after breakthrough acts in electronic music this year. Having played a prestigious festival circuit this year including Glastonbury, Lowlands & Pukkelpop, the autoKratz set combines their trademark rock and roll energy with a remarkably distinctive electro sound - a recipe which has seen them touted as the most significant live electronic act to have emerged in recent years with comparisons to legendary acts such as Underworld, Depeche Mode, and The Prodigy. "Always More", the first single to be taken from their highly anticipated debut album 'Animal' is a moment of electro-pop perfection, proving autoKratz have honed their songwriting craft to produce a very special record.

The Hacker

The Hacker
The Hacker is a French electroclash and techno producer who has worked extensively with Miss Kittin. « L'homme de l'ombre »... From his start in the hardcore technoscene, to the massive success he found with Miss Kittin; Michel Amato aka The Hacker is one of today's most talented and innovative French artists. With influences from Electro (Kraftwerk) to New Wave music (The Cure and Depeche Mode) and familiarity with the French rave scene of the early 1990s his sound is well defined, yet original.

My Robot Friend

My Robot Friend
My Robot Friend is no ordinary electro act. This is no ordinary act full-stop. Whereas science fiction (and indeed robots) have always played a part in the presentation and mythology of techno and electronic music, the figure on stage is far from being cliché. Looking like a character from the 80's computer-enhanced film Tron tangled up with a well-lit Christmas tree, My Robot Friend ambles around in front of his audiences powered by a neon-lit 30 pound battery pack.

Danger

Danger
Franck Rivoire is Danger, an electronic musician from Lyon, France. He expands on the 80s action-film sounds of Kavinsky (Record Makers) and takes them into mysterious territories. Powerful compositions that evoke a landscape that belongs equally in an Amiga video game and to a fictional animated film involving explorers deep in South American jungles stumbling upon a colossal obsidian pyramid.


Franck Rivoire aka Danger, est un de ces producteurs phares de la nouvelle scène électronique. Musicien mais aussi graphiste, c'est en artiste accomplit que Danger mêle avec magnificence ses sons à ses productions graphiques, prêt à vous entraîner dans une valse à travers un voyage auquel vous ne resterez insensible. Mettant en scène son personnage masqué, Danger défend un univers scénarisé qui fait appel aux codes de la ''Geek'' génération (fortement influencé par les jeux vidéo) et de ses inspirations culturelles tirées de la société de surconsommation des nineties.

Dynamisme, structures étonnantes, textures recherchées et palette sonores virevoltantes, ses morceaux s'enchainent comme des histoires, véritables fragments de vie de son monde imaginaire. Ses compositions sont de véritables valses atmosphériques et épiques d'un nouveau genre, lorgnant parfois même sur des B.O de vieux films à suspens appariées à des bleeps, des breaks et des sons saturés. Un savant panachage prêt à envoûter le Clubbing liégeois.

Plus que de la musique au sens strict du terme, ses artworks omniprésents, Danger crée un univers à part entière où tous ces éléments interagissent et se complètent pour vous faire passer une excursion électronique mémorable.

Fischerspooner

Fischerspooner
Fischerspooner is an art pop performance project created and helmed by Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner that makes music, dance, fashion, film and photography. Their work fuses fine art and pop culture, as in their renowned outsider pop shows bursting with stage effects presented in both art galleries and traditional concert halls. Their full-length albums of music include 1, a punked-up digital party record trussed with conceptual lyrics; and Odyssey, a rich emotional fantasia with a deep, expansive sound. Fischerspooner's third album Entertainment, a sophisticated pop epic bubbling with hooks, releases in May, 2009.

Fischer and Spooner met at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where they collaborated on performance art pieces. Years later in New York, Warren was starting his career as a commercial director and Casey was ready to move .. a nine-year tenure with the experimental theatre company Doorika; both were looking for a new creative outlet. Eager to rekindle their collaboration, they attempted a TV pilot but became more interested in the digital soundtrack Warren had composed for the show.

Between 1998 and 2000 the duo wrote a spate of cool electronic tracks to accompany an ambitious new performance idea. The music was perfectly pitched for the turn of the millennium: a pure digital statement equally informed by Spooner's love of pop confection as by Fischer's classical training and background in the seminal math-rock band Table. The show, a smash-up of pop extravagance undercut by experimental theatrics, was carried off with aplomb by Spooner, the flamboyant trickster front man, and driven home with Fischer's pulsating, addictive beats. With the help of an ever-expanding network of dancers, singers, designers, and artists, the performances grew into large-scale arena-style pop spectacles staged in galleries and nightclubs.

After an unlikely debut at the Starbucks on Astor Place, subsequent shows jumped between clubs like Limelight and Baktun and art world venues like Jack Tilton Gallery, P.S.1's Warm-Up series and a staging within Rikrit Tiravanija's Apartment 21 installation at Gavin Brown's enterprise. Fischerspooner unveiled their first solo show at Gavin Brown in March, 2000 with a series of marathon performances, five sets per night for five nights, that cemented their reputation as a pioneering, uneasily categorized creative force. In 2001 they followed up with a supersized version of the show in Los Angeles, and returned to rock New York in 2002 with a kaleidoscopic spectacular at current gallery Deitch Projects, concurrent with the premiere of their short film Sweetness.

Miss Kittin

Miss Kittin
Miss Kittin (real name Caroline Hervé) is an electro vocalist and DJ. She was born in Grenoble, France in 1973. At age 22 she began DJing, spinning records in France, Moscow and Chicago with Mike Dearborn. Soon after she met DJ Hell in Marseille who wanted her to record for his International DeeJay Gigolos label. She presented him with the EP Champagne that she recorded with The Hacker. Miss Kittin & The Hacker released First Album in 2001. Several tracks, such as 1982 and Frank Sinatra, became anthems of the electroclash scene.

Kittin expressed an interest in the visual arts - she studied both contemporary and graphic arts. As time progressed, however, Kittin found herself emulating her parents' musical tastes by developing an interest in musical genres ranging from classic, jazz, funk, and disco to English Pop. Finding her niche in Electronic Music in 1991, Kittin raved all around the country before doing her first mix in April of 1993. Her first set came one year later in 1994, at which time she started her career with Tekmics Booking Agency, playing in the famous Dragon Ball wild parties of Southern France.

In pursuit of other opportunities, Kittin left France in 1996 and relocated to Geneva, Switzerland, where she would join the Mental Groove Record Posse one year later. Through years of an exciting and mobile career as a DJ, Miss Kittin is confident with her own personal sound. She states, "I get quickly bored when I listen to the same sound. DJs have to take risks, without only thinking about what people want to hear. Some people say I'm too technical. That's true, but this technique also gives me the freedom to concentrate only on music."

She has become one of the most important figures in electroclash, working with Felix da Housecat, Chicks on Speed, and Golden Boy. In 2002, she released a techno music compilation under her own name (Miss Kittin On The Road). Her debut solo CD I Com has elements from different electronic styles and is more experimental than her previous records.

She collaborated with Sven Väth, Steve Bug, Ellen Allien (for remixes).

In 2006, she released Miss Kittin Live at Sonar, recorded at the famous electronic music festival Sonar at Barcelona. She plays her own tracks, among others tracks from Aphex Twin, Modeselektor, Boom Bip. 2006 also saw the release of a double-disc CD Miss Kittin: Bugged Out.

Two years in the making and almost four years since her debut album I Com, Miss Kittin announced her second album, BatBox for a February 2008 release. BatBox comprises thirteen original songs, all composed whilst touring throughout the world.
