THURSDAY MAY 22
CARL COX & MORE
A professional DJ since his early teens. A musical ambassador and a veteran of acid house and a champion of techno – you name it, Carl's been there and done it, never losing sight of his passions – playing music, breaking tunes and celebrating life.
It was at the age of 15 that Carl was given a set of turntables and began working as a mobile DJ. Disco was the first music that captivated him but by the early 80s Cox had moved on to playing the same music as other young London DJs – rare groove, New York hip-hop and electro. He was perfectly placed to hear Chicago house music in its earliest forms, and when the epic 'Acid Trax' by Phuture (a.k.a. DJ Pierre) came out in early '87.

A Touch Of Class Records Showcase:
Touch of Class Records requires no introduction these days. A collaboration between Los Angeles natives, Michael Tello of PillowTalk and Ray Zuniga. Together they pay homage to their fathers’ businesses and artistic principles by sharing the same musical roots, tastes and creative vision. TOCR is a natural creation, serving as a podium for the founder’s own productions as well as providing an artistic developmental platform for a family of artists compiled through the many travels music has graciously leant.
- SIGNAL FLOW
Signal Flow is a new live electronic Dj and production duo featuring San Francisco's own Michael Tello of PillowTalk and Ray Zuniga. Originally from Los Angeles, the label mates migrated north to San Francisco and now live bi-coastal in NYC and Los Angeles allowing the opportunity to build a strong music network and expand the TOCR family worldwide. Michael and Ray began their musical collaboration six years ago, giving birth to the innovative partnership that is Signal Flow. Their international profile has risen quickly. With gigs at Berlin’s best nightclubs and Robot Heart Burning Man, 2013 additionally saw the duo playing across the globe at other hotspots in London, Mexico and Ecuador having quickly made a name for their eclectic sound and energy.
- LOW TIDE
Los Angeles based DJ and production duo Low Tide are making waves, showcasing their talent through a depth and emotion that resonates with a variety of musical souls. Respected and passionate artists Michael Sandler, aka SAND, and Joshua Finley share a creative vision and are continuous in their efforts to utilize technical skill and refined taste to bring a unique sound to the forefront of the scene. The encouragement of friends and colleagues joined with collective experience have acted as significant factors fueling a relentless pursuit in the studio to create a vibration of their own, already catching the attention of hotly tipped labels such as Touch of Class, Motek, and Stranjjur.

When Paul Rose was sitting in his bedroom in south London, stuffing individual envelopes with promo singles, little did he know that, a decade later, his label would evolve into one of the most game-changing labels in UK dance music. Since 2003, Rose – better known to the world as dance music maverick Scuba – and his Hotflush imprint have helped shape the UK’s bass-heavy electronic landscape, starting with early dubstep and teasing its dark, bass-heavy sonics into funky, new-school garage and 2-step, jacking house and techno. They are underground tastemakers behind year-defining club smashes like Joy Orbison’s dubstep/house crossover Hyph Myngo and, last summer, Paul Woolford’s ubiquitous piano house banger, Untitled. And they have launched the careers of innovators as diverse as Mount Kimbie, George FitzGerald, Boxcutter and Sepalcure.
