FLOATING POINTS

The Manchester born, London based producer/dj/composer Sam Shepherd aka Floating Points has quickly become one of the most respected and sought-after musicians in contemporary music. Also as a DJ, Sheperd has gone on to establish himself as one the forerunners of today’s new dance music movement, earning the respect of his peers and contemporaries such as Theo Parrish, Kyle Hall, Benji B & many more.

HUNEE

Every DJ would like to think themselves a real musical connoisseur, but Hunee really is – it’s not him that says so, but pretty much anyone else whenever the man born Hun Choi pops up in conversation. As likely to draw for a classic house record as he is a disco curveball, a boogie delight or mixing an African bomb into a techno record, each selection he makes is a thing of true passion – you can see it not only in his eyes, but so too in the eyes of those dancing along.

TERRENCE DIXON (live, as POPULATION ONE)

First live show in the Netherlands ever, first time in Europe since 15 years… The Population One track ‘Rush Hour’ inspired RH’s company name, we can’t express how honored the Amsterdam institution feels to have him on the bill during this year’s weekender, at Shelter. Terrence Dixon debuted in 1994 on Claude Young’s Utensil label with a pair of 12″ releases under his own name and an album, Unknown Black Shapes, as Population One. Under the Population One codename, the Detroit citizen has realised some of his most vivid, esoteric portals to the Motor City mindset.

JORDAN GCZ (live)

One half of the much loved improvisation specialist duo Juju & Jordash and one third of Magic Mountain High – when Jordan GCZ flies solo he takes things to a whole new level. Originally from the US, GCZ has resided in Amsterdam for some years now with one foot in the local scene and the other firmly in his studio. Releasing his most recent output via local institution ‘Rush Hour’, ‘Future Times’ as well as his own ‘Off Minor’ imprint, Jordan’s productions capture the spirit of Detroit along with his own signature musicality and energy.

LOVEFINGERS

DJ, producer, promoter, label and A&R manager — Andrew “Lovefingers” Hogge has worn practically every hat there is to wear in the underground dance music industry over the past two decades. If one thing has driven Lovefingers’ myriad endeavors since the beginning, it’s the love of sharing music — pure and simple. An unwavering passion for crate digging and a penchant for the esoteric, have seen him emerge as a revered selector and tastemaker among discerning international listeners. Andrew brings the same deft curatorial hand to DJing as he does to his esteemed ESP Institute imprint, a global touchstone for genre-bending experimental dance fare.

KAMMA

Born and raised in Amsterdam, Kamma’s path to her craft could not have come more naturally. A child to parents who both have DJ’d professionally for over 25 years, Kamma was brought up on jazz, funk, disco and early house. Her instinctive nature and open-mindedness make her a purveyor of a wide range of sounds, going deep beyond her traditional roots. With an effortless contrast of energy and emotions, she journeys dancers into complex rhythms, dreamy waves and new era electronics.

MARGIE

Music runs deep in the veins of Margie, also known as Mijke Hurkx. For as long as she could count bars, Margie has been collecting and writing about music. The music lover extraordinaire collects boogie, house to whatever floats her boat. In Margie’s world without genre borders, there’s simply good or bad music. No doubt she feels right at home at Amsterdam’s versatile Rush Hour, where she runs the House of Music fanzine and plays DJ to RH’s label nights.

DREAMCAST

Dreamcast is a super soulful young singer and producer out of Washington, D.C. At the moment, he’s got a handful of tracks out (a few of which were released on the D.C.-based independent and funk-focused label PPU), on which his gentle, straightforward croon can be heard hovering over funky bass guitar lines and two-step friendly drums.

MARK GRUSANE

Former co-owner of Mr Peabody Records in Chicago, DJ Mark Grusane has a strong history and knowledge of DJing and Dancefloor culture while being an important go-to-guy for selections amongst a vast pool of international DJ’s, Compilers, and Record Labels. Just a little research will instantly show you his influence on DJ Culture, Record Collecting & Digging.

INTERSTELLAR FUNK

What marks out Interstellar Funk’s productions and DJ sets is van Elden’s love of the imperfections and eccentricities associated with left-of-centre analogue machine music. You’ll hear them within the new wave, electro, techno, jack-tracks, heavy electronics and everything in between that populate his DJ sets, as well as the solo records he’s released

SASSY J

Sassy J is a DJ, music lover, promoter and handcraft artist based in Bern, Switzerland. She has been pooling global sounds through her own night, Patchwork, for the last 10 years – doing it strictly for the love of music – by curating line-ups (from Sadar Bahar to MF Doom to Theo Parrish), or through her selections as a DJ.

RELMER INTERNATIONAL

Relmer International really tries to create a journey through house, balearic, italo and back in his sets as well his productions. He is an upcoming Amsterdam-based DJ, producer and new kid on the block ,who alsoproduces atmospheric house with a keen eye for the dancefloor.


SEKAN

Characterized by a broad musical taste and deep knowledge of various genres, Sekan attracts a wide range of music lovers. By his family he was exposed to Indonesian music at a young age, which still has a major influence on his current approach to sounds.
This eventually resulted in the start of his own platform Jiwa Jiwa. What originally started as a music label, has evolved into a multidimensional platform where photography, articles and films are expressed with the binding factor music.
