Robbie Lowe

Robbie Lowe is undeniably one of Australia’s most talented and respected DJ’s.

If a young DJ has made an impact on the Sydney’s underground house scene over the same time, Robbie may well have given them their start. Robbie has been given props by some of the biggest names in dance music today, that include John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo, James Zabiela & Danny Howells. More recently Robbie was the chosen warm up DJ for Tiesto’s Sydney - Elements Of Life Tour - shows.

Bingo Players

Bingo Players (Paul Bäumer & Maarten Hoogstraten) have been left gasping for air after a seriously hectic year with bookings in the Netherlands and abroad. Outgrowing local bingo halls to play with the big ballers of the game has been the result of their hard work and devotion. The Bingo Players appear to have been made for each other, the proof of which came in November 2009, when the DJ/producer duo topped the Beatport overall chart for a second time with their remake of the dance floor classic, “Devotion”, which stayed on no. 1 for two weeks and over a month in the top 10!

Dada Life

They don’t care about genres. They don’t care about smartness. They don’t care about the things you care about. Dada Life just want to make you jump up and down. Then make you crash into a wall with a smile on your face. The formula has been a winner since the start. In summer 2006 Dada Life released ”Big Time” and DJ:s all over got their first take on the duo. Since then there has been a steady stream of records: ”The Great Fashionista Swindle”, ”Vote Yes” and “Fun Fun Fun” as well as the full length album “Just Do The Dada”.

Motor City Drum Ensemble

Danilo Plessow is a hard man to pigeonhole. Since 2003, he's been producing broken beat and jazzier material with Joachim Tobias under the Inverse Cinematics banner. Their debut full-length Passin' Through was released this year, but there's another reason why people have been talking about Plessow in 2008. He's the man that's responsible for the Motor City Drum Ensemble project, producing music which seems to encapsulate the spirit of Detroit despite being made in Stuttgart - a place that - next to Wolfsburg - is considered Germany's own 'motor city'.
