His minimal techno makes for an extremely special occasion, but you never know what style of techno he will throw down. All you can be certain of is being in awe over his absurd control of the decks.
The Ukranian duo Artbat has a standard of excellence that would make a pop fanatic understand techno. Their clean production has been recognized and implemented into sets by leading names like Richie Hawtin, Solomun, Tale Of Us, Pete Tong and more. Their break through single was, “Mandrake” on Definition Music and if you haven’t seen their Cercle set at Bondinho Pão de Açúcar, then do that now.
4. Kevin Knapp
With music for the body and mind is house producer and vocalist Kevin Knapp. By taking a bottom up approach to creating music, Kevin Knapp is notorious for house music with urgency that grabs the hips while treating listeners to intellectual intricacies that simulate the mind. Currently based out of Berlin, Knapp has been fine tuning his chops playing for the snobbiest of techno crowds and without falter has emerged within the electronic music scene as a favorite.
