Karotte is quite simply a truly outstanding DJ, his Residencies at Germany’s most illustrious hot spots such as Harry Klein Munich and Cocoon Club Frankfurt have provided platforms for the sound he has forged over the passed two decade. His radio-show Karottes Kitchen and his productions on labels such as Great Stuff, Break New Soil and studio partnerships with Gregor Tresher have all been key ingredients to the uniqueness that makes up Karotte.
DJ RALF is without doubt a key element of the Italian house music scene, over a long career taking his signature style to clubs all over Europe and the world. He’s featured in publications such as, DJ Magazine, Rolling Stone, GQ, Vanity Fair, and Vogue, ran his label, Laterra Recordings, presented his own club night at Privilege in Ibiza in fact there’s not much that DJ Ralf hasn’t done, he is without doubt an institution and with him brings a flavour of the infamous pinnacle of Italian clubbing, Cocoricò to London.
Bart Skils has established himself as one of Holland’s most respected and in demand Techno DJs, his sets cheered by his followers as extremely forward thinking and musically well constructed. Bart’s releases and remixes for Drumcode, Tronic, Break New Soil, Cocoon and Rejected are internationally rated as some of the most cutting edge dance tracks to come out of Holland in recent years, his latest EP just out on Adam Beyers label has been making considerable waves.
From first winning Beatport’s Carl Cox Worldwide remix competition in 2011 to playing back to back with Christian Smith at the Miami Music Conference this year, Jewel Kid has consistently been a DJ Producer that delivers and makes as very welcome return to Familia, this time with his own a label showcase. Alleanza’s prolific releases constantly frequent the sales charts, with releases by artists such as Pig & Dan, Popov, Kaiserdisco, Hermanez, Bart Skils and of course Jewel Kid, it is with great pride that we host their first showcase in London.
