Electromanteca (CL)
This Chilean producer, DJ, and musician based in Buenos Aires (AR) with more than 10 years of focused musical creations (including a love affair with Digital Cumbia). His musical repertoire includes beats like hip-hop, global bass, and electronica mixed with tropical samplers. He founded the Perrera Cultural collective and has been the host of innovative parties in Buenos Aires – such as Boiler Roof and Peput! Currently, he is developing his first EP Nuevacumbiacción, a two-sided release with his own sound on side A and mashups on side B.

Lt.Dan (IL)
His love for music goes way back to his hometown Jerusalem, from making mixtapes to his parents’ parties when he was 10 years old, through working in “The Ear Way” music shop, where he acquired perspective, passion & fine ear for unusual sounds – from jazz, post punk, wave, classic & even pop. This wonderful house of music forged Dan’s sensitivity for esthetic sound and quenched his constant curiosity for new / old school music. After making his name in Tel Aviv with Legotek crew and many party concepts, he moved to the electronic mecca of Berlin, where he led the DonnersDucks party in Ritter Butzke for a few years. He regularly spins his sounds around Europe in cities like Hamburg, Milano, Warsaw, Prague, Vienna, Copenhagen, Paris & Barcelona to name a few, spreading his open minded music world to various dancefloors.

In 2007, he founded the MASH IT UP! platform in Cologne; in 2009 he became resident DJ and
