DJ NIGGA FOX (DJ) is part of Lisbon's Principe Discos crew, and an exciting sonic culture nurtured out of the Portuguese capital's urban and suburban areas. His debut 'O Meu Estilo' and follow up 'Noite e Dia' have liberated dancefloors.
JUHA (DJ) is founder of Progress Bar and plays new internet dance music. As of 2016, Juha presents Viral Radio on ResonanceEXTRA, a monthly two-hour programme following new developments deep down the rabbit hole of internet music culture.
LOTIC (DJ) is DJ and producer J’Kerian Morgan. Raised in Houston, Texas and now operating out of Berlin, Morgan is a resident at the city’s famed Janus parties and in recent years has evolved into one of the most original voices of Berlin's club life.
MEREDITH GREER (talk) is a writer and a feminist. She has published in Vrij Nederland, hard//hoofd, de Volkskrant, het Parool, HP/De Tijd and had a column at Vileine adressing old white men. She now works as an editor at Joop.nl.
MORO (DJ) is an Argentian producer whose work is concerned with highlighting the African roots of his country's most famous musical export: tango. Moro's debut EP, 'San Benito', was released last year on NON Worldwide.
YON ETA (DJ) has a maximalist approach to sound while striving to limit the options in the production process of his music. This Hague-based artist runs the DEVORM imprint, a hybrid community challenging the form of AV releases.
ZIÚR (DJ) is a Berlin-based DJ/producer dedicated to combining different sonic textures and brainy beats into a functional dancefloor framework. Her music is clearly intended for loud soundsystems (and preferably accompanied by a fog machine).
