12AM – 1AM
In his DJ performances and track production, Adam X's sound is best described as hard, EBM and industrial inspired dance-floor techno & electro. Adam X penetrates, educates and infuses his audience with a real energy, often drawing from dark & sexual themes, through the mastery of the electronic music medium he has gained from a prolific career. Adam got started in NYC in the early '90s -an era of a burgeoning grass-roots music and club culture, which he himself had contributed to. In his career, Adam X has performed alongside artists such as Aphex Twin, Surgeon & Joey Beltram, and lately, the likes of Terence Fixmer/Douglas Mccarthy and Andrew Weatherall. He's performed at thousands of events, raves and club nights globally including Mayday, Love Parade, DEMF, and Fabric. Adam's list of solo commercial releases and collaborative projects on CD and vinyl is equally impressive. A few of the many labels Adam has released music under are Wax Trax-TVT (Mastermix Series Vol. 2), Instinct Records (Adam X 'On the 1 and 2'), Oliver Chesler's Things To Come Label (Sensory Deprivation) and many projects on his own aforementioned label, Sonic Groove. Adam currently has a chameleonic approach to his artistry, playing at Industrial events like Maschinenfest in Germany, to playing famous techno clubs the next night like Rex Club in Paris. His own productions also combine the two genres, containing elements of both in a single track.

Psycho The Irrational Kidd
Irrational Mob Mentality/Gold Coast Multimedia/Funkilinium
10PM – 11PM
Expect the unexpected. One of the most wildly unpredictable DJs that you will ever lay your eyes and ears upon. Psyc, a 24-year veteran of the turntables (and former Midwest scratch champ), recently gave up staying in one area because he believes that "if it's on vinyl, it's fair game". He also plays with FUNKILINIUM, a 6-piece powerhouse funk band that has been getting a lot of attention from the majors lately. Be there to witness why Psycho has been called "the missing link between Jeff Mills and the Tazmanian Devil".

(hard/dark/aggressive drum & bass, Kalamazoo, MI)
11PM – 12AM
This turntable assassin was born with a wide variety of skill and precision. His name is the epitome of his raw style which encompasses the full spectrum of drum & bass music, but you really should leave your silver bullets at home, cause this guy is definitely known for bringing it dark enough for the vampires...
Race of Reaction/True Family Unit /C9 Records

Roll has been producing for 6 years, blending a steady mix of hip hop jungle and scratching About a year ago roll finally decided to take up the 1200's, deeming jungle as his weapon of choice. Having played along side the likes of Danny the Wild Child, True Family Unit, as well as fellow Race of Reaction peers, the last year has been a bombshell of productivity. Boasting a wide variety of tracks and one (of many) vinyl releases his sound will leave you, rollin, rollin.
Irrational Mob Mentality | UKG/2step

Looks can be decieving. Max Jerome doesn't look the part of the funky get-down artist that rocks all points of UK Garage, but let him loose on the decks......and watch the bassbins react. He's been studying the Garage scene since 1997, and is a walking encyclopedia of all things UKG. Come witness the sound of the Bwoi them call Max J.....and see why he's top choice.....

Cartel, Almost Famous Chicago, IL
Having been in the game for 6+ years Brad is no stranger to the scene. Drawing from the likes of Terry Mullan, Nigel Richards and Angel Alanis, which means he knows about that TechFunk. Having recently opened for Adam X, Brad bounces those heads by switching back between Techno and House. With his past residency at Heat, his slot at Relapse, and being one half of the driving force behind the Cartel he is a very busy guy. This is some home grown talent that you don't want to miss.
