DAX J

Forward thinking, London born, Berlin based artist Dax J, is at the helm of cutting edge music, constantly striving to push the boundaries of audio manipulation into new realms unexplored.

Label owner of “Monnom Black”, one of the 3 founding members of “EarToGround Records” and releases on seminal labels such as Deeply Rooted House, Soma, Mindtrip, Arts and Fondation Sonore. Dax has seen his music remixed by some of the scenes biggest artists from the likes of Phase, Ryan Elliott, Truss, Shifted, Jonas Kopp and Mark Broom.

In 2013 Dax started his own imprint “Monnom Black” a project that has seen music from artists across the globe establishing Dax’s ideal of techno. It has since gained huge support and has become a successful established go-to label for quality techno.

As a DJ, Dax J is known for his raw and powerful sets. Recent performances across Europe, Asia & South America at various clubs and events include the likes of Berghain (Germany) Dommune (Japan), Glastonbury Festival (UK) and Cocoliche (Argentina) to name a few. His techno sound reflects his early roots of pirate radio and underground raves.

Dax grew up listening to the UK sounds of jungle, drum n bass and garage. Being heavily influenced by the likes of Goldie and Bad Company, his love for the underground meant he soon started dj’ing on pirate radios at an early age of 15 whilst he was still at school. He became an avid vinyl collector buying from his local record store “Black Market” on a weekly basis whilst at the same time producing and crafting his sound. His first vinyl releases would come in 2005 on old Jungle labels like Mickey Finn’s “Urban Takeover” under alias “Dangerous” and his own imprint back then “Xplicit Sound.” Following on from this Dax went on to discover the sounds of techno during one summer spent in Ibiza. From this point on his passion for cutting edge 4 by 4 beats took over but the old jungle influences are still heard today in his dj sets and productions.

His past and current music have earned Dax plays from some of the most respected names in underground dance music as well as receiving BBC Radio 1 airplay. Degree educated in Music Technology and running his own studio in Berlin, Dax J also works as a sound and mastering engineer. With a stack of music set to be released and a busy gig schedule over the rest of the year the future is looking bright for the British artist.

K-HAND

The story of techno can’t be told without Detroit, and the story of Detroit can’t be told without K-HAND. Over two decades, A businesswoman, DJ, and Producer, K-HAND aka Kelli Hand is the First Lady of Detroit techno worldwide. While she is a contemporary of all the Motor City titans - Mills, May, and Robert Hood to name a few - Kelli forged her own path from early on in her career. She turned down the opportunity to release on legendary imprints Underground Resistance and Axis to plant the seeds of her own label, in full bloom, Acacia Records. K-HAND is one of Detroit’s best kept secrets and has steadily been building a storm through her passion, talent, and hard work along with creating DJ workshops for Kids of the New Generation up & coming.

Her sensibilities are informed by her formative experiences partying in New York as a member at Paradise Garage, with sample-heavy tracks that are full of character, driving rhythms, raw percussion, and body-moving grooves. In both her releases and DJ sets, she effortlessly glides back and forth between house and techno, with a signature funk and movement common in her selections and productions. Her recent releases on Nina Kraviz’s Trip, her classic Project 5, and latest Project 6 EP's plus tracks such as, ‘Candle Lights’, ‘Starz’, and ‘Come On Now Baby’ are some highlights of her massive catalogue, with over 200+ releases to date.
She has a myriad of accolades under her belt, but K-HAND’s attitude has always been to let the music speak for itself first and foremost.
