TOM REAL (UK)
Tom Real's career spans all the way back to late 90s London, but while his music’s kept up with the freshest, his love for a party remains unchanged. Glastonbury, Glade, Boom, Universo Paralello, Burning Man, Secret Garden Party and Kazantip are just a few of the international festivals that have felt the power of his DJ sets. With a focus on techno, Tom Real’s sound is inspired by playing mind-bending music to casts of thousands at extreme parties in far-flung corners of the globe. If it's hot and sunny, preferably has a beach or a jungle, there is a solar eclipse happening or if the party lays in the ruins of a post-apocalyptic playground then he’s there, sonically taking the dance floor apart and taking the assembled throng on a journey of mind, body and soul.
Until recently Tom was heavily focused on a project with a long-suffering friend called Disco Of Doom which saw support from DJs from Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Annie Nightingale and Kissy Sell Out, to the likes of Mixhell, Brodinski, DJ Zinc, Timo Maas and Fake Blood. He remixed the stars, life was good, the party didn't stop, there were dwarves everywhere, it was naked ladies riding pure-white horses bareback across nightclub floors, and hanging out with A-list celebs and getting invites to all the hottest parties in town. Then one day he awoke…and thought: “this isn't the life I want to lead. Take me back to the mythical dance floor, wide-open space… mountains in the distance, thousands of passionate party-people worshipping at the temple of rave. Take me back to the place I love.” Be warned.

After a little while he approaches music in a more intimate manner by starter playing guitar and electricbass and when he is still very young, he joins a psychedelic band as bass player. At the age of 23, the turning point. After being to Freankfurt,Germany and after visiting the Neuton European mega-distributor, he develops a passion for the dance music and he watches the evolution of the TECHNO phenomenon in Naples, which has been defined as the newer and innovative “second wave”. With his open-minded temper, he becomes promoter of underground events, bringing into the city the hottest well-known names of time. Always a passionate connoisseur, he goes on a regular basis to the production studios of his friends, who at the time were young techno producers and who now are the famous Marco Carola, Rino Cerrone and Danilo Vigorito. In 2000, tired of being a spectator, he starts playing , causing quite a stir. His experience as promoter for so many years, the many hours spent in the studio with the Neapolitan “Masters”, along with his experience as psychedelic bass player have given JD the opportunity to have all the requirements to bring energy and freshness of style to his sets. He is among the first playing minimal techno and experimenting electro insertions. JD has just created the track FULL ONE, remixed by TOM CLARK, on Inminimal rec and he released “anything_groovy” on Casbah.rec remixed by Guido Schneider.

Since going behind the decks Steve's DJ sets have proved popular, playing a blend of sounds that reflect years of experience in dance music. Thus, Sun Drenched Tribal Grooves was born. Whether in clubs or festivals, the unique choice of tracks always creates a positive energy on the dance floor with a distinct air of originality.
The Kundalini organisation has been active since the mid 90's and has always been about breaking convention, constantly striving to provide a complete party experience.
GROOVEDESIGN aka DJ Emiliano started DJing in 1990 and since then he has certainly been one of the purest representative dj of the international underground scene. Throughout his long career he has developed his unique style of performing, mastering both vinyl and digital techniques. Vibe and energy are masterfully crafted to create a simple but sophisticated message. Light as shape of a vibrational field that reaches far beyond common imagination, are depicted through beats, grooves and frequencies, in a fractal ever changing fashion.
New wave influences spring about in a deep, dark electronic ambience where house roots are just a remembrance, though a persistent one. Techno is the frame in which this powerful psychedelic journey takes place.

KARL ALEXANDER (NL)
Karl got interested in DJ'ing back in the early 90's when as a kid he got his first go on a few 1200's with an old used and abused Dateq mixer at a friends place. Learned the ropes by playing his friends' collection of early (acid) trance, "turn up the bass" house music and early rave records at first, but eventually fell in love with techno music which lead him to buying his own records by the likes of Mauro Picotto, Jeff Mills, Dave Clarke and later some more work by Speedy J and Robert hood as being a bass head he slowly started to appreciate the more minimalistic, slower yet bass heavy sounds more than the fast, mid/high driven "rave style" techno music.
First equipment self-owned consisted of 2 second (probably third) hand silver 1210MK2's and an el-cheapo mixer (brand unknown to human kind) connected to an old Realistic Amp Stereo set up at an attic "studio" in the middle of a residential area pissing off all neighbors within about a mile radius.
Started playing in warehouses around Amsterdam's industrial area's he then quickly went from just pissing off his neighbors to also pissing off pretty much every one else’s in the rural Amsterdam area.
He then got a degree in IT Science, a job, the fucking big television, the washing machine, the car and mortgage and then he suddenly remembered that very early in the new millennium he got his first taste of all the wonders of the digital world of music when he saw a demo of Rebirth and later Traktor and Ableton at a technology expo in Amsterdam.
This could finally bridge the gap between his 2 passions. IT and Techno. The technology was, however, far from mature at the time.
But then, back in 2010, when he saw Chris Liebing and his all time hero Speedy J play an amazing set together remixing and mashing up tracks live with their set-up using Traktor, Ableton and Maschine he knew. This was what he really wanted to do. And so began the age of samples, drum machines, tracks and raging controllerism.
His trusty travel companions now consist of a MBP running Ableton Live and Traktor, 2X1 II's and an Octatrack. All connected to an A&H DB4 mixer bringing it all together in a hybrid Live-DJ set-up.
Usually seen in the greater Amsterdam area he's also known as the 'Eindbaas' (dutch for End Boss) for usually being the final bad ass act of the night. His sounds can best be described as deep, minimalistic, bass driven and hard.
CHRIS SOSA (NL)
Chris has been into and enjoying electronic music all his life. Making mix tapes when he was young, and later on burning his own CD's with the latest techno tracks for on the road.
At the age of 17 he attended his first full-on techno festival and ever since was hooked to the banging sounds coming from PA speakers.
At school he was responsible for the audio and lighting used for plays and party's and was the occasional DJ on CDJ's and SL1200's, which later seemed to be the perfect preparation for years to come!
After regularly going to party's in Amsterdam, with old time heroes like Sven Vath, Ritchie Hawtin and Dave Clarke, the time finally came to move and study in the city of Delft.
During the student years, a lot of time was spent on the party's held at the largest student fraternity of Delft: Virgiel. Here he was responsible for the concept, planning and execution of the audio and lighting used at party's, trying to make each time as unique and as special as the budget allowed.
After years of organizing events and listening to techno, the time finally came that he played some tracks himself at a friend's house and things went fast afterwards. The enjoyment of playing the music you like, the way you like it, was the main reason to pick up DJing again. Slowly piece by piece was collected to fill the studio at home and a decent collection of techno tracks was formed to last ages.
Together with friends party's have been given in the Netherlands, as wel as abroad, and DJing has become a part of the 'whole package' of musical entertainment that he wants to provide in the years to come.

London based DJ and producer
If you've been to OZORA festival, you've probably heard Katamii playing: her sets are elemental parts of the Pumpui stage, meanwhile she's one of the musical leaders and managers of the stage too.
Everything started with OZORA, where she revealed her soul-music in front of a major audience for the first time in 2011. Since then she's been the warm up for Eitan Reiter or Minilogue (among others) and this year she played before Perfect Stranger, who's been a dominant figure in her musical career.
She's been invited to play at Samsara- and Bakony Festivals in Hungary, two years ago she played at Seli Mountain Gathering in Greece and next year she's going to perform at Psy-Boutique Festival in Turkey.
She has a really impulsive style and you can always find that sneaky deep pulse in her music that sees through her sets - she's a real wolf in sheep's clothing.
