dBridge: dBridge, aka Darren White, has been traversing the drum and bass scene since the early ’90s, perhaps most memorably spearheading the group Bad Company alongside Dj Maldini, Fresh and Vegas. But Darren’s musical interest is far more unconventional and far-reaching than we might expect. Since founding Exit Records in 2003, Darren has demonstrated a clear desire to move away from typical club style drum and bass sounds to more ambient and experimental soundscapes.
DJ Nobu: Chiba-based DJ Nobu is something of a cult figure for those who know. He represents decades of experience, all of which are distilled at his acclaimed party Future Terror, his label Bitta and his few choice production outings. All of this has slowly but surely turned Nobu from being one of Japan’s, to one of the world’s most in demand artists who is famously flexible and ever evolving.

Minor Science: a key figure on the AD 93 label, Minor Science is an engineer of hybrid, hi-tech music which doesn’t quite sound like anything else out there. Club tracks like “Naturally Spineless” (2016) and “Volumes” (2017) featured on end of year lists from FACT, Mixmag, and Crack Magazine; his beloved remix of Special Request’s “Stairfoot Lane Bunker” (Houndstooth, 2017) fractured jungle into cubist shards; the “mixtape”/mini-site Absent Friends Vol II presented an intimate and virtuosically detailed take on ambient music.
Peter Van Hoesen: Belgium’s Peter Van Hoesen is considered as one of techno’s tastemakers. Peter composes for many different environments – the club, the home, the gallery or even the museum. He does so with a true sense of personality and a constant desire to search for new sounds and shapes. He is the founder and curator behind 60 Sounds as well as artistic contributor.
Wata Igarashi: Wata Igarashi brings together the euphoric and the psychedelic, with his music standing out for its crystalline structures and shimmering intensity. Igarashi’s considered approach is one that stimulates the body and mind, generating energy and emotion.
