Jeff Mills, along with Robert Hood, Carl Craig, and Joey Beltram, is one of the biggest American names in techno. Championed for his music’s relentless pursuit of hardness and his stripped-down, almost industrial DJ sets, Mills is the latest in a long line of Detroit-bred talent to take on an international reputation.
After many years of playing together in the club and in the studio, Praslea and Raresh decided to unveil their own Praslesh project. The Understand 002 was the first of many releases to come. If you enjoy their productions you should know their back 2 back is already a classic. It first happened here, in their own yard, and now they are all over the place! Just like a diamond that needs a little polish, they started this new adventure when the time was right. And we were there. Always been, always will.
Hamburg native Helena Hauff made her name as a DJ spinning acid house, EBM/industrial, and electro at the Golden Pudel Club, where she hosted a night called Birds and Other Instruments. Her own productions draw from these influences, as she creates stripped-down techno and electro recorded strictly using analog equipment, usually in one take.

In truth, there is little available information to offer on Vlada. Having grown up in Moscow and trained on the piano from the age of just six, she has been travelling the world and playing records since she turned 18. Her time today is split between Berlin and Moscow, and she continues to hold a residency in the latter city’s Arma17 nightclub. In addition to this, she also manages the curation of The Volks parties as co-founder.
First blowing a gale as a forerunner of the new wave of Melbourne dance producers, Tornado Wallace’s distinct and perceptive electronics now find him in a constant rotation of both hemispheres, spending most of the year based in Berlin.
