Born 26 years ago in Venezuela but currently based in London, Arca is one of the most interesting enigmas in recent electronic music.

Sonic witness of Chicago’s current sound is RP Boo, juke / footwork pioneer.

The sound of Berlin duo Amnesia Scanner, recently signed by the Young Turks label, is as brutal as it is futuristic. Berlin is home also for the Janus collective, which will present a showcase featuring the irreverent M.E.S.H., the emerging Kablam and the unpredictable Total Freedom. And then Toxe, the formidable 18-year-old dj/producer from Gothenburg who’s spearheading the Staycore crew.
