Sepalcure’s combination of love for bass and 90s house acapellas is the culmination of a cathartic two week collaboration between Machinedrum and Praveen. Their mix of tribal dub, house and two step beats works equally well for both late nights in the club and rainy, introspective nights at home. Detroit techno chords cut through wooden beats, neon synths and dubbed out atmospherics.From Brooklyn by way of Minnesota, Brian Lindgren produces some of the most acrobatic electro-hip-hop and uses sampling in very unique ways. Informed by classic breakbeats and 8 bit nostalgia, his diversity within the genre is unparalleled. Mishka claimed that his 2010 LP Skulltaste (Ghostly International) ‘heightens the face of bedroom production.’Originally hailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico, DJ Manny has long had an affinity for performance and a life long love affair with music. An accomplished and award-winning Austin artist, musician, and teacher, DJ Manny founded the DJ Dojo (music store and studio) to share his passion and knowledge with the music community. His music is sexy, fun, and energetic. DJ Manny never fails to drive the dance floor to the brink of losing it, expertly drawing in his audience with pulsating walls of bass.

He’s done pretty much every aspect of DJING from playing in weird other countries to celebrity weddings, barmitzvahs, and clubs of all different shapes and sizes. He plays appropriate music for any occasion, meaning he is not too proud to play some tear out dubstep, throwback electro, or some 90’s rap shit. His personal music tastes do shine and he prides himself as being a tastemaker- so expect the best- no shitty music from this guy.
Dials has been writing and producing music for years, his first 12′ record was released on Brownswood Electr*c Volume 2- Giles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings. He has hundreds of beats that will never see the light of day, mostly downtempo and the occasionally syrup dripped rap jawn. Based in San Francisco, Dials curates tastemaker shows in many clubs across town. He tries to challenge the audience and has a fun time doing it… as he puts it, ‘I want to do memorable parties with good music’.Sleazemore’s personality in American electro culture is big and hugelike the ocean is deep. The ever-ready party machine has been known called the antithesis of many bad decisions. His party in San Francisco, Light’s Down Low (nominated for best club in SF ‘08 music awards), is an essential spot, acting as a minor league for artists who shortly after become major players, and has recently become intenational with the opening of Lights Down Low Amsterdam and Lights Down Low France to much acclaim. Sleazemore’s graphic design is not only in demand, but has been one of the most influential of today’s electro scene. His track selection is consistently solid he’s been known to mix the hottest track of the minute with the hottest track of tomorrows when it’s not even 5 hours old. He’s shared the stage with the likes of Simian Mobile Disco, Green Velvet, Justice and the Ed Banger Crew, MSTRKRFT, Boys Noize, Laidback Luke, Jesse Rose, Miss Kittin, Tiefschwarz, Kid Cudi, Felix Da Housecat, Major Lazer, Matthew Dear, the Sounds, Sinden, Crookers, A-trak, Trevor Loveys, Dj Craze, The Glimmers, Tim Sweeney,The Jaun Maclean, Tommie Sunshine and countless others and has played everywhere from NYC to Berlin to Mexico City to Paris.
