FJAAK, Newa, Aurora Halal
■ FJAAK ■ From a Spandau-Basement experiment to a now well established force in contemporary techno: The rise of the smoked out musicians that go by the name of FJAAK has been nothing short of spectacular so far. With eleven singles & EPs, two albums and a couple of compilation appearances under their belt, FJAAK can look back on a large discography that packs quite a punch. Easily moving through House, Techno, Rave, Ambient & Breakbeat, one can only wonder what the trio will release next. The only thing guaranteed: It will always move a dancefloor.
■ NEWA ■ Newa is a classically trained musician from Tbilisi, on the forefront of the rapidly emerging Georgian electronic music scene. Being the first female producer to have releases on Ben Klock's label Klockworks, with additional releases on Bassiani and Semantica, she has toured solidly with her dynamic and energetic dj sets, playing everywhere from the infamous ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event) to clubs like Berlin's Berghain, Tbilisi's Bassiani and Khidi and Montpellier's Institute Club.
■ AURORA HALAL ■ Aurora Halal is a producer, DJ and creator of Brooklyn’s Mutual Dreaming party series & the Sustain-Release festival. Shadowy and psychedelic, her hardware live & DJ sets have a hazy sensuality and metallic dance floor intensity that's at turns playful, dark, acidic, hard, euphoric and emotionally vulnerable. In all her projects, she treats dance music as an arena for transformation and underground as the final destination. She’s has spent the last years touring some of the most forward-thinking clubs, raves and festivals including Unsound, Atonal and as a regular at Berghain and De School.
