Avalon Emerson is from the desert. While she currently lives in Berlin, the music she produces comes from the dreamlike expanse and abstract textures of the Sonoran landscapes of Arizona. Her journey has taken her from that sunbaked state to the contemporary dance music mecca via a long stint in San Francisco, where she cut her teeth as a DJ in the city's storied warehouse party scene. In her DJ sets and productions now, she offers a timeless narrative that reflects a passion for the sound design of new wave, the futurism of techno, the soul of American house and the exuberance of rave. Though she's built up steam in 2015 from multiple sets at Panorama Bar, and globetrotting all around Europe and North America, she's just getting started, and continues to outdo herself with original productions released on Whities, Shtum, Spring Theory, and Icee Hot, and her own DJ tool edit pool, the Cybernedits series.
Not everyone grows up with the sea in his backyard. Sliding through the salty waters next to his parents’ residence in Zeeland, the Rotterdam based Oceanic found what he’d like the most: trancey percussion over floating ungraspable rhythms. By holding a monthly residency at Amsterdam club De School, he developed a knack for tracing lines between unpredictable genres whilst never taking his eye off the dance floor; making him one of the most exciting DJ talents of The Netherlands. Several thrilling productions settled on his brother’s label Nous’klaer Audio, remixes on Versatile and Yeyeh, with many more to come. The latest project entails a tripping ambient live set, which debuted at the World Minimal Music Festival at Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ in Amsterdam. In 2017 he was also part of ArcHertz residency in Assisi, Italy, to create a site-specific sound piece for a large crater; Mortaro-Grande.
