Dean & Britta

Dean & Britta is a musical duo consisting of Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips, both former members of Luna. Wareham had formed Luna in 1992 after leaving his first band, Galaxie 500. Phillips joined Luna in 2000, replacing bassist Justin Harwood. Their first album started out as a Wareham solo project, but when he heard Phillips' demos, he asked her to join him. After Luna broke up in 2005, Dean & Britta spent the next year working on film scores (most notably Noah Baumbach's movie, The Squid and the Whale), and promoting the documentary film of Luna's farewell tour Tell Me Do You Miss Me.

The Subs

Rambunctious. That's the least you can say about Belgian beatbastards The Subs. Having already released a couple of underground dance maxis - 'You Make Me Spill', 'Fuck That Shit', 'Substracktion' - over the past years, they hit it hard in 2008, with 'Kiss My Trance', a punktrance-juggernaut of a hitsingle.
The track started off as a joke, the band wanted to see how far they could push the limits of the trance-genre and get away with it.

Saviour

We are a modern Hardcore/Death Metal band from north coast Perth Australia. We do not want our music to be seen as a common sound nor an alternate evil, but merely a channel for people to be proactive, a movement from this ever evolving sedentary lifestyle. You know no one better than yourself, so persist if you are going to try, pick yourself up when you're down, and don't let anyone push you around. We won't settle for second best. I swear, this is only the beginning.

Sound of Stereo

Sound Of Stereo interview: - Who is Sound Of Stereo?
Sound Of Stereo is 2 guys from Brussels, Belgium. We met two years ago on an internet community where we were diggin' the same music. We started talking and came to the conclusion that we lived only a few miles away from each other. I - Jochen - was already doing some production work and my partner in crime - Vincent - was already deejaying in the neighbourhood. We were both quite good at what we did, but we didn't have a way to promote ourselves. That changed when we decided to do stuff together.
