SPECIAL GUEST
Oscilador Bass (Mexico)
The favorite ancestral robot of housewives and washing machines was assembled over 15 thousand light years ago with parts of ancestral robots and spatial glass pieces; this supreme being is the miracle of his extinct civilization. His planet called “Cumbiatron”, a planet full of technology and beings focused on creating a fusion of electronic components and feelings. Oscilador Bass is a robot with a heart. His mission and objective is to collect music and culture of all galaxies. After long traveling to find a destination, he discovered a planet called “Earth”, after investigating he finds out it is a civilization full of feelings and love, therefore he decides to establish his home there. Oscillador Bass created a new sound called Latin Bass Sound mixing güiros, cencerros and tumbas with the best spatial sound getting his sole objective: to feel and to transmit happiness to all humanity, fulfilling the desire of their ancestors”. He started the free netlabel Latin bass mexico records, counting 8 mega compilations of latin bass sounds and has also released 4 EP’s of his own productions.

Aero Manyelo
Born in Zebediela, Limpopo in 1987, and growing up in the Johannesburg township of Ivory Park, Manyelo was influenced by his father’s love of jazz – and his music has a depth that distinguishes it from South Africa’s plethora of house music. Township Electro is how Manyelo describes his sound and sees him ready to take it to increasing numbers of fans around the globe and at home. Over the past decade, Manyelo’s career has been rapidly gaining momentum on the back of a string of releases on labels such as Out Here Records, Akwaaba Music, Get Physical Music and his own label Herbal 3 Records. His considerable remix skills have also been in demand (Amadou & Mariam’s “Ce N’est Pas Bon” and Jupiter & Okwess International’s “Margarita”), while his original tracks have been included in several high-profile international compilations, and has worked with many renowned artists.
