Santé (Desolat, Cocoon, VIVa, Avotre, 8bit, SCI+TEC)
Our headliner Santé promises to bring a proper Berlin vibe to the dancefloor as he debuts his sound in Los Angeles for the first time ever. 2013 has seen Santé kill in Ibiza at Sankey's, Watergate in Berlin and every other corner of the world as well. Somehow LA has slept on this incredible talent and we are proud to be the first to bring him to town in proper style.
Santé's releases on the mighty Desolat, Sven Vath's Cocoon, Steve Lawler's VIVa and on his own label Avotre have made him one of the most charted DJs in the game with artists like Hot Since 82 & Jamie Jones rinsing tracks like "Freak That" all year long.
This will be no chilled out sleepy set... bring your dancing shoes for a proper techy vibe all night long!
Human Life (Hot Creations, Defected)
Hailing from LA, Human Life has seen a surge in interest this year with his Hot Creations collab "Falling" alongside Anabel Englund. In addition to his recent remix for Felix Da Housecat, Human Life has a huge amount of music set for release in 2014 including the lead remix for Yolanda Be Cool feat. SYF & Fritz formerly of Azari & III, as well as several singles & EPs.
