Miane's story is one of hard work and DIY dedication. That, added to her immense talent, have managed to put her among the most interesting artists in the scene. Despite not growing up in a musical environment, Miane is the living incarnation of the DIY culture that is taking over electronic music -- a culture that hasn't stopped giving us some of the most incredible talents of the last few years.
Since 2013, when she settled in Ibiza, Miane has evolved and developed her elegant sound.
Nowadays, after years dedicated to the growth of her label and her DJ career, Miane is now focused on producing, her true passion. Mixing the best features in each of house's subgenres, with her unique use of Black voices -- that she manages to tweak at will -- and that magic touch that works as her secret ingredient, Miane manages to empower each and every one of her tracks. Thanks to the sound palette she has managed to develop over her more than seven years in the industry, Miane is -- without question -- a newcomer to keep an eye on.
Her DIY mentality, her passion, and the curiousness she develops towards any innovation -- both digital and analog -- have made her a more complete artist sonically, evolving naturally towards that warm and organic sound she feels most drawn to, with influences that range from old school house to R&B, or '90s soul.
Miane's story is an old-school one, where talent and hard work meet to give us a unique artist, set for a meteoric rise. A promise that becomes real, with the future in her hands.
Sonic manipulation is the cornerstone of Dillon Nathaniel’s unconventional approach to house music. In just a few short years the graduate of the revered Icon Collective and self professed gear junkie has proven himself to be a technical mastermind and modern house music connoisseur. The strength of his thick low-end grooves and quirky sound design have caught the ears of A-Track, AC Slater, Destructo, Chris Lake, Malaa and Tchami. His sound has also begun to inject itself onto the ears of mainstream audiences with plays popping up from BBC Radio 1, Rinse FM and Sirius. And with appearances on Night Bass, Confession, This Ain’t Bristol, Main Course, Audiophile and Perfect Driver it’s clear his intent to “Shake up people’s perception of what house is” is well within reach. While it may seem like this young bass technician has seen a quick rise, his roots run deep. The former audio engineer and gear junkie found his footing in music at an early age as a vocalist and guitar player. His father hoped to impress upon him a strong emphasis in dance music exposing the budding musician to the likes of Carl Cox and Sasha on road trips from the age of 8. He eventually brought Dillon to EDC at the age of 16. It was this that provided the ultimate inspiration to pursue a career in dance music. His ability to construct a mood extends well beyond the studio into his dynamic and energetic DJ sets. He’s flexed the subs throughout the country bringing his unique sound to Avalon Hollywood, Exchange LA, Webster Hall (NYC) and Insomniac Event’s Escape Psycho Circus. There is no doubt that Dillon will continue to turn heads as he pushes forward in his effort to reshape the face of modern dance music.

House Legend and Grammy award winner Todd Edwards has had a stellar musical career spanning over 25 years. Very early on Todd developed a unique way of utilising sampling, particularly vocals and would often use this technique in place of a musical instrument in his productions. This hypnotic collage of cut-up samples over swung beats and lively disco- flavoured baselines helped set him apart from many of his peers and resulted in him being credited as one of the Godfathers of UK Garage, being referred to as Todd ‘The God’ Edwards amongst fans. A succession of releases followed over the years cementing the admiration fans and producers alike have for Todd, each track highlighting his unique production style. In addition to his own legendary productions, Todd has remixed artists like phoenix, Wiley, Justice, Matthew Dear, Hot Chip, Wilkinson, Klaxons, Jess Glynne & Jax Jones, St. Germain, Mella Dee, MJ Cole, Oliver Heldens & countless others.
