Electronic music and video technology cemented the basis of 2014 Sound Department winter format. We want to listen to artists in their being eclectic, setting them free from the rules of the thousand people-dancefloor, to let them feel free to express their art at best at these latitudes. We just wanna tell you a story mingled in the night of a club in which there is just one storyteller : the artist. We’re not inviting you to a club or to a night in a discotheque, but we’re inviting you to be a part of our tale, to write it with us. The moral of this tale will not only be impressed in our minds, but all the feelings of the 200 lucky audience will be relived in high definition on our own hard drives.
Rødhåd has been socialized by Berlin's looptechno nights and always finds the perfect balance of timeless techno to lift the dancefloor higher and higher.
His style is always deep, powerful and melancholic - from dubtechno to techno and back to house.
A technological society, a mechanist present, an industrial era... long and dark nights, warehouses, cogeneration plants, noise.
Which kind of music matches the rhythm of Western civilization better than Rødhåds music?!

SIMONE GATTO bio:
The peaceful sound of the morning breeze and the powerful noise of the sea waves shattering on the rocks in the darkness are sounds that Simone has assimilated from his motherland. This scenario is well mixed in his musical productions, combining it in a delicate balance within his deep and dub house tracks.
Thanks to his philosophical and sociological studies, he enforced his underground beliefs such as tangible expression of the energies that are related to people’s deepest emotions.
All these shapes take place in Simone’s tracks, productions that are the result of contaminations between all the “young” producer’s musical backgrounds. His strongest influences are without any doubt techno and house music, merged with his funky roots.
As a result of this very well mixed knowledge Simone’s dj-sets reflect an infinite multiplicity of musical combinations. The final purpose of his acts is to transforms energies and sensations that the crowd expresses on the dancefloor, into a continuous vibe created mixing vinyls.
