GUILLAUME KELLER (France)
Is a 21 years old DJ. Born in Paris, he began exploring the universe of electronic music when he was a teenager, while listening to the albums of Unkle and Daft Punk.When he was 16, he developed a real interest in radio. He started the co-operation with M’Radio, the radio of Necker Kids Hospital in Paris. During this time, while promoting his favorite tracks, he realized that music was his true passion. After his experience with M’Radio he made a step forward and bought his first controller. He learned how to mix at home and at friend’s parties in his town - Fontenay sous Bois, in the suburb of Paris.
During his studies of radio-journalism, he spent 5 months in Barcelona, working as music journalist for Equinox Radio. The internship gave him the opportunity to discover the night life of the city and its electro scene. While working for Equinox radio he interviewed famous Djs such as Fatboy Slim, Claude Von Strok and Booka Shade. In May 2013 he started his own radio show entitled „Diffuse Electro Radio Show”, called after his facebook page Diffuse Electro.
He performed his first gigs in Barcelona at the beginning of summer 2013. He mixed in Red Lab, a quality music bar in Gracia. Mixing with Gunther Robbles, working in the bar made him progress a lot. The same summer he interviewed Anja Schneider, Pan Pot or Paul Kalkbrenner.
In October 2013, he met the founder of The House Party and joined the team.
At that time The House Party collective was a resident at City Hall and after moved to Surya. Since January 2014, he’s taking care of The House Party project in Barcelona with three other Djs - catalan producer and dj Bassel Darwish, Edvex and Joanna Kiedrowska. Today they continue organizing Deep Thursdays at Surya (Barcelona). They are also starting to have gigs in other places such as La Vietnamita, Rouge Lab and Rex Room in Razzmatazz.
The name Lady Jay has recently been equated to as New York City’s next Techno/Deep House/Minimal talent of Ida Engberg and at the same time the girl next door unjaded sweetness of American country star, Faith Hill. All comparison aside (no blood relation to either), Jay Hill has made her mark as one of the fastest rising and hardest working talents around the globe.
Landing four residencies in NY with back-to-back gigs from Los Angeles to Austin, TX to London UK (Notting Hill Carnival), two guest appearances on Ibiza Global Radio (Riccicomoto's Audioselfdefence show), and special guest appearances on Berlin's Lucidflow Records Podcast, Girl Power show on Strom:Kraft Radio (Hamburg, Germany), Kiss FM.au (Melbourne, Australia) and Quantized Music sessions on Cannibal Radio (Greece). Formerly a Trip-Hop based singer songwriter/spoken word vocalist in San Francisco, Jay's life has been surrounded with an intense passion for the expression of movement and sound. . .
n 2007 in Los Angeles Jay founded her company The Writing Studio (www.thewritingstudionyc.com) a boutique copyrighting agency with a niche for bios/press kits for electronic dance music. Through The Writing Studio, Jay has been had access into the minds of some of the world’s biggest
electronic music producers such as Shonky, Surgeon, Kenny Larkin, Infected Mushroom, Dimitri Andreas and David Herrero, plus many more.
After relocating to New York City in fall of 2011 (via Los Angeles), Jay dropped into the dance music scene and became known not for her writing work but her own gift for spinning free-style mixing with perfect timing selections. As a result, Jay has shared the stage with some of music’s biggest producers such as: Infected Mushroom, Shonky/Dan Ghenacia, Franck Roger, Nadja Lind, Okain, Timid Boy, Michel de Hey, and Pete Oak to name a few. . .
2013 was an awesome year for Jay, as people started discovering her true talent for mixing and impeccable track selections - she got booked in some of NYC’s most world renown clubs such as Cielo, Output/Panther Room and Best Buy Theatre to coin a few.
In 2014, her focus is on her original productions, remixing and vocal work which is already paying off, in May 2014 her first EP will be released on Flowing Movement Music (Brazil) followed by tracks/remixes on Quantized Music (Greece). . . all of which makes this one, Lady Jay right at the helm - everyone around her can feel it . . . - B.

MATIAS VILA (Argentina)
Listening to this Argentine producer' s works, who has established its "headquarters" in the city of Barcelona, we realize that Matias Vila has managed to reach his full artistic maturity . With this we do not mean the fact that there is no longer anything to be expected on his part , but, on the contrary, we believe that anything could happen and that he is able to capture in his music, what he wants, when and how want.
Matias shows us his inner word and he goes beyond what people usually expect from a producer of electronic music, helping to dismantle the idea that if you compose dance music, you're not musician. Luckily, many producers, like Matias, they are demonstrating how much such beliefs are wrong .
His latest works are ready to be appreciated in him live sets full of feeling and fervor. A mystical journey that will keep you locked from start to finish; an excellent work that will not leave you indifferent and supported by important figures in the world of progressive house, like Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren (just to name a few).
We can try to convince how good his musict but you never believe to these words without your personal experience. Try to believe, the advice we feel responsible to give you is that another concept of electronic music yes, it is possible!
Eclectic! This is the word that best describes this Italian Dj, settled in Barcelona since six years already. Passion for music worked as an input for Emilia Celona, a.k.a. MìKO, who has always wished to let people move at the sound of her music. This child, who used to dream awake in her room with headphones and walkman, has grown-up now and her dream has slowly become true. Although it is not a very long time since she started performing in front of the huge public, MìKO knows how to keep attention from the audience and how to make people dance with a very peculiar sound. For her nothing is funnier than choosing next song and observe how the public will react.
After performing throughout several Italian towns, like Messina at MeClub, Cuneo at ZooBar, Barcelona and after many contributions to radio programs at MHT Records, this 2014 seems a very positive year for this artist who recently begun working at her own music. She is able to harmonize Progressive, one of her favorite music genres, with Chill-out, Nudisco, Deep, Tech-House and Techno. She is co-founder and resident Dj at Religion party
MìKO thinks about her performances like a collective catharsis – a group therapy – as she strongly believe in the power of music and wants to pay the opportunity back to those who made her dream come true: the public.

DANNY LLOYD (Italy)
Danny Lloyd was born in the late 70's in a small Tuscan village overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. Since his childhood he shows interest in music spending much time listening to records that his mother used to buy for him. While he was growing, his passion increases, and he begins to explore the vast world of electronic music, still practicing any kind, for an innate eclectic sensitivity. In the early 90’s, the contaminations of ambient, deep and experimental house sounds create his unique musical style and give a recognizable stamp to each live session (dj) that he realizes.
After his first experience as a producer, in 1994, with the project called "the cream project" (label ZAC), he decided to create his own studio to express himself freely. Over the years, Danny, using various nicknames (Denyo, LloydHertz, Twelve etc etc) explores many styles including Ambient, House, Techhouse, Deep House, Funk Jazz, Chillout, Minimal, Techno, Progressive, creating good experience in production and receiving many international acclaims.
He is very requested as a remixer, where he always manages to give a particular interpretation that distinguishes him. Currently, he produces for different labels and different styles of music. His radio-shows are a continuous journey of ups and downs of emotions compared to the flight of a manta ray.
You can listen to his radio shows on:
PROTON RADIO (USA), EILO.ORG (BUL), SONIC.FM (ARG), GOLDEN WINGS (ARG)
Currently he works with several artists, in particular with the artist Andrea Cassino, creating a very interesting project that they are pursuing for several years, that is “NOCTURNA”.
