ABOUT BARNT: German artist Barnt is one of the few new faces in the electronic music scene whose tracks turn established formulas against the grain.
"Geffen" on Cómeme became an instand classic after its release in spring 2012,
leading many DJ's end of year polls.
His debut album "Magazine 13.", released on his own label Magazine in 2014, is "an
unusually heartfelt testament to techno's emotive potential." (Pitchfork)
That year also saw Barnt releasing the massive club hit "Chappell" on Will Bankhead
and Joy Orbison's Hinge Finger label. "Few tracks are as immediately recognizable
from the moment they inch into the mix – and so effectively uniting as it tears out of
the soundsystem." (Resident Advisor)
Being regarded an exceptionally well-skilled DJ, Barnt has been invited to major
clubs and festivals in over 40 countries during the last five years.
ABOUT WOO YORK: Members of the European techno revival, Ukranian duo Woo York produce a powerful, driving, dark yet sophisticated sound with a unique live performance placing them amongst the leaders in underground, electronic music.
Local heroes in their hometown of Kiev since 2009, Andrew and Dennis have been able to connect the world with their trippy, melodic techno through a string of releases with likes of Dystopian, Afterlife, Life & Death, Semantica and Soma. They’ve performed numerous showcases around the world with a club and festival portfolio that resulted in their debut listing in Resident Advisor’s Top 40 Live acts for 2016.
Moving between pure dance floor techno and more experimental material, Woo York’s hardware driven live performance shows an experience and dexterity that allows them to challenge a crowd’s perception of contemporary live performance. Their aesthetic, although rooted in techno, is left-field focused and driven by electronic music’s vast influences; from the avant-garde to the fundamental creators of Detroit, Berlin and beyond.
