Lusine is the brainchild of Jeff McIlwain for his visceral, melodic vision of abstract electronic music. Having attended Cal Arts to study 20th century electronic music and sound design for music and film, he has since recorded for labels such as !K7/MAS, Hymen, Delikatessen and Isophlux. Since making the move to Ghostly in 2003, Lusine has released "Push" , "Flat" Remixes, and the "Inside/Out" EP, as well as the stunning and widely-lauded "Serial Hodgepodge" full-length from 2004.
Four Tet is the name used by Kieran Hebden (born 1977 in Putney, London, UK) for his experimental electronic music-oriented solo efforts, to differentiate from his work with post-rock band Fridge. Hebden's solo work typically utilises samples lifted from various sources including hip-hop, electronica, techno, jazz, and folk mixed with his own guitar playing. Four Tet shares some stylistic similarities with other musicians, such as Prefuse 73, who use computer editing techniques that give the music a staccato, cut-up feel.
Vitalic (born as Pascal Arbez in 1976) is an electronic music artist. He was born in France and is of Italian descent. His first singles were released in 1996 and 1997, but were confined to the underground electronic music scene. He decided to make music when he heard Daft Punk's Rollin' & Scratchin' in a club in his hometown Dijon. He became good friends with Michel Amato, also known as The Hacker, whom he met in the Rex, the "techno temple" of Laurent Garnier. The Hacker suggested he send his new tracks to DJ Hell, head of Gigolo records in Munich.
Tijs Michiel Verwest (born January 17, 1969 in Breda, The Netherlands) is better known by his stage name Tiësto. He started out DJing professionally at school parties, and then moved on to become a resident DJ from 1985 to 1993 at several clubs in The Netherlands. It was at a club called 'The Spock' where things really took off for Tiësto; he stopped producing hardcore/gabber tracks and started to produce his own sound from 10pm until 4am on weekends. In the mid 1990s, Tiësto started to produce trance and the rest, as they say, is history.

Reims , France YUKSEK
Album 2009 : AWAY FROM THE SEA Two or three times a week, on his Myspace page, Yuksek gets an e-mail from Turkey saying “Hey, know what? Yuksek means “high” in Turkish!” The answer to which is no! Pierre-Alexandre Busson wasn’t aware of this when he chose the name by instinct four years ago, partly for its sound and partly to buck the trend of English-sounding names that are ubiquitous in electronic music. In recent months, the pseudonym has been collecting an ever-growing halo of buzz.
Timo Maas (born July 27, 1969 in Hannover, Germany) is an electronic music DJ/producer and remixer. Maas' first fascination with music was sparked by listening to the radio when he was young. At the age of 9 he bought his first record and went on to buy his first set of turntables at 17. His very first set was in 1982, when he played at a party in his friend's home. The beginning of his career consisted mostly of gigs around Germany playing "Top 40"-records, but occasionally sneaking in a techno record.
Sir Qbik's binary orchestra.
From the magnificent wallop of the opening elicited textures that are well delineated and sumptuous through to the final measures of orgiastic fulfillment, the orchestra will delivered handsomely.
