Z E S
Tilburg producer ZES scores with his EP 'Hindsight' and specifically the hitsingle 'Do It Again' millions of YouTube and Spotify plays in 2016. He creates futuristic and atmospheric electronics that are reminiscent to Flume and Four Tet but also Danish Trentemøller is never far. Live shows at STRP, PITCH, We Are Electric and Noisia Invites gave him a solid liveprofile. ZES has just finished his first real album.

Amsterdam based Sjam Sjamsoedin has been around the electronic music scene for over fifteen years. He bought his first sampler in 1999 and has been experimenting with electronic instruments ever since, which culminated in building his own modular synth in 2014 to sculpt his own sound.
Sjamsoedin’s live reputation is growing, with shows at Down The Rabbit Hole, Amsterdam Dance Event, World Minimal Music Festival, Best Kept Secret, Solar and Milkshake this year, Sjamsoedin is already presenting his new material in a performance full of electronica, house and techno ingredients. All created live on stage by man and machine.

Electronic duo CUT_ took off rapidly after their rendition of Stromae’s ‘Papaoutai’ went viral. They has since then played numerous shows, including performances at Lowlands, Pitch and ADE.
“We feel our music is a crossover between dark alternative electronics and edgy pop music. Trying to combine our love for the two, we’ve been very inspired by a new style of songwriting that’s been greatly evolving the last few years. Acts such as Flume, Aluna George and Jamie XX paved a fresh way for us. One that we’re happy to walk.” (~ Belle Doron: vocals & songwriting)
CUT_’s finishing up their album and will be releasing singles of the forthcoming album very soon. Live a new dimension is being added to the show with a live drummer lifting the whole to another level.
H O L L T
Merging funky basslines and melodic tech-house with dreamy soundscapes. On stage, Hollt creates the perfect mix between techno and house, whilst having lots of fun with his audience and colleague artists. With his own label and studio, new releases and collabs slated and industry-wide support, 2018 will be the year Hollt is cementing his name in the scene.
F E I E R T A G
Feiertag is the alter ego of the Dutch live-act Joris Feiertag. Recording and performing since 2015, his sound can be described as electronic yet warm, and with a preference for innovative syncopated rhythms combined with fragments of instruments such as the harp and kalimba. Integrated with a varied range of international vocalists, creating a beautiful mix of chill, vibrant music easy to listen to which in return translates beautifully to live electronic dance-music.
A M : K L U B
AM:Klub is the alternative showpiece during dark nights. The DJ’s within this collective will always provide a weird but danceable mix of underground hits, funky guitar records and the best dancefloor bangers.

His first EP will be out this autumn and includes collaborations with Bink Beats, Ariaan Olieroock (16 Bit Lolitas / Cubicolor) and Chris Mulder (Yakumo Orchestra).
