Finland's Aleksi Perälä has formed a labyrinth of work over the past two decades, including over 20 albums for his own AP Musik label, Rephlex and most recently Clone Records. Over the past year His deeply hypnotic, spiritual and otherworldly techno has been showcased at Atonal, Printworks, Berghain, Flow Festival and Dekmantel.

Oliver Ho's activity has been non-stop since 1996, working with Blueprint, Drumcode and many more before the launch of Broken English Club- his outlet for no/wave noise, post-punk and dystopian electronica, which has seen seen light amongst the ranks of Cititrax, Jealous God and L.I.E.S.

Bristol's Giant Swan perform with aggressive tact. A cross-breed of hypnotic bass, industrial percussion and disorientating energy. Armed with machines and pedals, they abuse standardised instrumentation to create their own brand of techno-not-techno for the likes of Howling Owl and Fuckpunk.

Demian Licht is a spearhead of Mexico's techno scene, whilst being a vehicle of progression as the country's only female certified Ableton instructor. We play host to her new 'ANIMUS' audio-visual live performance, following shows at Berghain, Saule, Dour Festival, La Machine and for Hessle Audio's 10th anniversary celebrations in Scotland.

Camila Fuchs are an electronic duo from Germany and Mexico, based in London. Through a range of analog machinery and abstract visuals, alien frequencies merge with IDM tinted trip-hop to create a passionate and pained interpretation of urban soundscapes. Their latest album saw respected press recognising them as one of the most exciting crossover acts of 2016, with a new album being released for All Tomorrow's Parties next year. 

White Peak is a live project which, despite their name, plunges elements of jungle and hardcore from their golden era's into the black depths of techno, which has been showcased over the past year at Freerotation and in support slots Venetian Snares, Alex Smoke and The Sprawl. 

White Peak is a live duo project. Taking inspiration from 90’s jungle and hardcore, manipulating into a contemporary techno interpretation. Performances over the past year at Freerotation and in support slots with Source Direct, Lee Gamble, Venetian Snares, Alex Smoke and The Sprawl.
