PROTECT YOUR EARS
► TESSELA (UK)
Slamming broken beats and a smart sense of rhythm have marked Tessela out from the crowd. Having released a handful of singles on labels including Peverelist's Punch Drunk records and his own Poly Kicks imprint, the UK producer has now found a home releasing on the legendary R&S Records.
► MANNI DEE (UK)
[Black Sun Records / Osiris Music]
Fiercely inventive, intrinsically diverse, and with one ear firmly on the future, Manni Dee’s known for turning out percussion-led music packing both dance floor heft and headphone nuance.
Manni Dee’s compositions cleverly anchor stark, machine-like percussion in unprocessed field recordings and abstract noise sources, toying with the conventional boundaries between sound and music. The mixture of impromptu organic recordings and pin-sharp manmade elements simultaneously humanises and adds an air of detachment to the work; a testament to Manni’s command of texture and flair for sound design.
► ARTHUR TIXHON (BE)
[Under My Garage]
As a promotor of Under My Garage, Arthur Tixhon is also know to be an excellent DJ and producer with a very distinct sound.
► ARPINE (BE)
[Resident / Anthem Festival]
Arpine always knows how and when to hit the spot, and he's already proven that as a resident of Boké. His vinyl collection reflects his strong love for heavyweight bassmusic, coming from a background as drum & bass and jungle dj known as Mofe Crew.
► D4T5UN (BE)
The guys from D4T5UN play as Boké residents under the name Chung & The Gang. Chung & SYDNY are like two peas in a pod, and they're going to deliver some firm and edgy UK floorfillers.
Slave to the rave, rave to the grave!
