It is warm, upbeat, energetic and most of all, irresistible: The Egbert-sound. @discoveregbert Van der Gugten is an ordinary Dutch guy, except for the fact that he is THE Dutch techno-act at this moment.
In his loft in Rotterdam, Egbert produces one great dance floor track after another. However,no dance floor can hear it. The only witness to the magic he creates are the four walls of his loft until the Dutch techno legend Secret Cinema (Jeroen Verheij) finds him online.
Verheij pulls Egbert out of his loft and gives him, at age 20, a stage to perform on and a record label. It turned out to be the start of an international victory tour.
Having hardly recovered from his first two releases in the Netherlands, Sven Vath calls fromFrankfurt: Can Egbert deliver a track for Cocoon, stat. Vreugdevuur becomes one of the most prominent releases of 2009 and after that things go fast. Really fast.
The loft quickly becomes history when Egbert closes the main stage of Time Warp, crushesAwakenings for no less than a dozen times in a couple years and graces Club Womb in Tokyo.Additionally, he is a frequent guest in Cape Town, Budapest, Ibiza, Melbourne and Singapore Not bad for a guy who before his first release only flew in a plane once. But understand thatwherever Egbert comes, all (let me repeat: ALL) hands will go up, and they will stay there.
Very proud of him to be the youngest Dutch techno-hero bringing quality music to dance floors across the globe - Rocco Veenboer, Awakenings
Egbert sets a new standard when he singlehandedly performs for 6 hours straight in a sold out club Melkweg in Amsterdam. The question is: what is someone who achieved so much in such a short period of time going to do next? No worries. Aside from the fact that he still has accountless amount of tracks waiting to see the world (thank you, loft), Egberts ambition and energy are limitless.
The entire world is his next stop.
Live! performance recorded at Hyte (Amsterdam/NL) on February 28, 2015, no tracklist available.

As a now respected veteran of Germany’s techno scene, Dj Emerson struck a chord with multilayered techno; enriched in quality and indicative of his synthetic electronic style.
Founder of the esteemed Micro.fon imprint, he has opened the door and brought driving techno from its barren lands to a new territory built upon groove and bounce.
With releases on Electric Deluxe, CLR and Brood Audio Emerson has moved through the last decade unearthing a fledging reputation as a turn to producer for those who love a gutfull of groove despite how driving and hard faced the music may be.
As a young Dj and producer Emerson started out in South Germany, tinkering through various clubs before getting a break at Munich’s Utraschall Club, that led to a nationwide tour with the respected Timing Recordings label. Subsequently, opportunities arose with several major clubs in Germany, before Emerson decided to take his sound abroad to Ibiza, Tokyo, Miami and Eastern Europe amongst others. DJ Emerson is also an extremely prolific producer and much loved DJ both in his native Germany and across the globe. The positive response to his work inspired Emerson to start kiddaz.fm in 2001, a label which has clocked up over 80 releases, selling more than 100,000 units in the process, and counts the likes of Adam Beyer and Chris Liebing among its regular supporters, the latter with whom he released many records on CLR’s sublabel Spinclub Records including its inaugural 12” “Mr Nice / Cut The Crap”.
His underground cuts such as Rubberband Man and Truckvolume as still manage to twist handfuls of percussion and melody around a more industrial tech house backbone etching his name in to the collective consciousness of worldwide techno followers. As a modern techno juggernaut of a producer Emerson is without doubt part of a pedigree of underground artists vastly aware of a changing German music scene that sees him deliver his gritty beats and analogue architecture to dancefloors with ease.
Dominik Stuppy, born in Neunkirchen, is a German artist who works as a Mixing Artist and Producer in all kind of electronic music. At the age of 6 he started to take keyboard and drum lessons and already showed interest for electronic music. Especially Chris Liebing, Dj Rush, Carl Cox and Umek inspired him with their hard and aggressive sounds, what animated him to get his first own Dj equipment at the age of 16. He had many opportunities to show his talent in several local clubs and web stations.
Since 2013 he is producing his own music because he got tired of playing other artist&覥s tracks. He have Releases on well known Labels (Schubfaktor, AudioCode) and worked together with Producers Like: Dj Lukas, Sepromatiq, Tobias Lueke aka O.B.I Sutura, Killbrothers, Hellboy and many more.
Hours seeks input from a broad range of music to inspire his own twisted and progressive creations. His unique style and taste range across groovy ambient sounds, house tunes right into heavy techno. Still, the biggest impact on his vision for electronic music was the hell hole called Club Prag on the outskirts of the German city Stuttgart, where he started clubbing in his late teens, started DJing in 2009 and and is now known as the infamous “Lehmann Club”, located at the heart of South German Motor City, where he has been a resident since 2010.
Releasing hardcore punk records back in 2010 and 2011, the German producer looked forward to expand his musical horizon and started HOURS in 2012, a project dedicated to atmospheric electronic music with plenty of raw textures and grooves. Throughout this time he produced, mixed and mastered countless underground records for various German bands and artists, ranging from Hip-Hop to Death Metal.
After refining his sound for over two years, he finally released his debut on Driving Forces Recordings and followed it up with an EP for London based 2651 Records and a VA for AFFIN in 2014. Besides releasing a driving two-tracker on Pierre Deutschmanns XLR1507 he started his own imprint CONCEPTS OF TIME in may 2015. Asked if this broad in- and output of such diverse musical influence could have any adverse effects on his own material, his usual answer will be: “I don’t think so. For me, it’s just music. There is a time and place for anything. If I showed you the parallels between a great techno tune and a really underground sludge metal record, you’d be more than surprised…“
Pierre Deutschmann was born 1974 in Berlin. On the way to his style he passed early Hip Hop and Acid House and ended up with the sound he's producing today. But there is hardly any "typical“ Deutschmann Sound: regarding the sound, we can expect mostly everything around Techno and Electronica.
If we have a closer look at his work it is quite hard to imagine that all this is done by only one person - Deutschmann is definitely something we can call a musical workaholic!
During his time as a producer he had the chance to work together with artists such as Robbie Rivera, Louis Vega, Justice, Rockers HiFi,Westbam, Dj Pierre, Paul van Dyk.
2008 Deutschmann founded his first label "k:lender“, 2009 the techno-edition "k:lender limited“ was following.
After only a short while the next strictly Techno division was born: "XLR1507“ his youngest Imprint which was established in 2011 and is now growing fast!
When Pierre Deutschmann is playing his Gigs, he has the ability to catch even the worst dancing grump in the last back corner. His tool is a perfect working development in his set and therefore he doesn't need all them well known club-hits, he can help himself out of his huge repertoire of own tracks.
Gockel started to produce Hardtechno at the beginning of the year 2012 and after some months he also started djing. Soon he got his first releases on several big labels like Contempt Music Productions and Press Sure Records.
He had his first two gigs at the Nature One Camping Village in 2013 and soon he played at the Mikroport Club and at the Kult Club.
In 2014 he had the pleasure to release with the legendary label Cannibal Society. Famous artists like Fernanda Martins, Pet Duo, Candy Cox, Motormorfoses, O.B.I and others are playing his tracks. He also started his own label Massive Madness in june 2014.
From now on Gockel is one of the most important newcomers in the hardtechno-scene, be prepared for what’s coming next.
