Imagine this scenario: Sometime during the last XX years. You're navigating in one of the trustworthiest club in Leipzig. You receive an unpredictable, instantly hip-loosening, expertly, but oh-so-casual performed set, in which you want to dance for evermore. A light-footed ride over the keyboard of contemporary and universal sounds from organic-melodic house and disco through to soulful techno. You have to know who operates the controller here. You’re dancing towards the DJ booth . Who do you behold behind the turntables? Filburt. His sets between turntablism and beat match expertise, mindful of his flowing together in the great Floor formula style horizons are no more regional phenomenon. As 50 % of Good Guy Mikesh & Filburt and also as a producer / DJ on his own Filburts effective radius has expanded into the national and international in the recent years. As the former manager of the renowned Leipzig Vinyl Dealers Freezone Records and owner of the label O * RS was or is he active at all possible switching points of the scene. The experience behind the decks and in the periphery trains his sense for the perfect club track for years. Several formulations with this feeling for House and everything adjacent have already appeared on labels like Permanent Vacation , Liebe * Detail , Mirau , Dirt Crew , Compost and Riotvan.
Avid music collector, DJ's DJ, Vincent Neumann has gathered a loyal underground following by word of mouth, with consistently brilliant closing sets and long patient vinyl orientated mixing. Born, raised and currently residing in Leipzig, Vincent Neumann works as a psychotherapist during the day and as a dj by night. As one of the residents of Leipzig's Distillery since 2012, he happily gets to share his passion for dance music regularly. The vibes during his djsets are often described as energetic, fast, enthusiastic and sometimes even relentless, without ever sacrificing taste or quality. For him, authenticity will always stand above fame, and if you witness one of his 10 hour marathon sets at Berghain or elsewhere you will understand what the fuss is about.
Mauro Caracho ist seit Beginn seiner Tage tief verwurzelt in der Leipziger Szene. Damals noch ravend mit seinen Plateaus zu Trance, wandelt Herr Caracho stilsicher dieser Tage zwischen den Genres; arangiert spielend House, Techno und Disco zu einem stets zur Bewegung verlockenden, pulsierenden Ganzen. Mit diesem glitzernden Sternenhaufen an Erfahrung, vor wie hinter dem Pult, sowie der ihm eignen unglaublichen Energie des Stehaufmännchens, gibt er stets Alles und lockt dabei defintiv den letzten Tanzmuffel aus der Reserve. Nicht nur ganz nebenbei ist er noch Distillery-Resident, betreut das frisch aus der Taufe gehobene Label Distillery Records und ist Mitglied der allseits bekannten Fäncy Crew. No more words needed, innit?
