Carl Cox

ARTBAT are modern dance music tastemakers who have widescreen sound that is meticulously well crafted whether operating in deep melodic worlds or more powerful techno spheres. They head up their own influential UPPERGROUND label and are at the top of their game right now.

Sara Landry

Sara Landry is relentless. At once immensely creative and wholly uncompromising, she is a self-taught producer, audio engineer, and DJ known for her dark, driving, and divinely feminine brand of industrial techno. Do not miss.
