Flowjob was formed in 2001 by Joakim Hjørne & Mads Tinggaard. After a several initial releases on Iboga, the duo crafted their own unique morning sound that resulted in releases on Tribal Vision, Flow, Plastic Park etc.. Shortly after, their debut album "Support Normality" Flowjob began touring the international trance circuit, playing around the world at festivals such as, Fusion, Glade, Maitreya, Full Moon, Midnight Sun, & Universo Parallello.. "Zentertainment" thier 2nd album was released in 2008, with a more upbeat vibe.. Tracks like "Tomorrow Returns" and "Dont believe in Mirrors" quickly became dancefloor hits. In 2009, Mads left the project due to injuries that made long studio sessions and flights impossible. Joakim is now working constantly in the studio, releasing several compilations as well as recently completing the third Flowjob album "Sway", and the new "Windbreaker" EP just released on Iboga... Both show off a more tech edged and quirky sound yet maintain the same warmth and drive that makes Flowjob irresistible.
MAD MAXX (http://madmaxxmusic.com/)
MAD MAXX is the result of years of hard work, perfecting a unique sound, embodying all the travels, experiences and parties of the past 15 years. The music is a mix of trance, ethnic and deep sounds, with a strong kick and ominous bass line, an electro touch, emotional chants, and at times nostalgic atmospheres, with a BPM ranging from 140 to 145 in general. All of this sonic mayhem delivered in a whirlwind of psychedelia of course...
SPACE TRIBE (http://tinyurl.com/spacetr
Olli Wisdom SPACE TRIBE), Originally from England, now living in the Rainforest near Byron Bay, Australia, has been a pioneer of Psychedelic Trance for many years. In the early 80s Olli was the singer in the theatrical Goth/Glam band "The Specimen", & ran the famous London goth club " The Batcave ". After the band split up in 1986 Olli went traveling in Asia and in 1988 came to Koh Phangan in Thailand where he first encountered the fantastic electro-driven wild psychedelic parties on the beach. Instantly hooked, he immersed himself into the music and has never looked back. Over the next 4 years, Olli spent his time mostly in Goa, as well as traveling for events around the word to turn people on. In 1995, the first official Space Tribe tracks were hatched in the studio with Simon Posford (Hallucinogen/Sphongle), and everything flowed from there. Olli moved out to the rainforest in Byron Bay in Australia, and set up the Rainforest Space Base studio. Space Tribe released the first album, 'Sonic Mandala' on Spirit Zone in 1996, and since then Space Tribe has released at least an album a year. In 2004 Space Tribe Music was set up as a record label providing an out let for Space Tribe releases & compilation albums. Space Tribe parties have lifted the spirit and tweaked the synapses in Australia, Brazil, Japan, South Africa, Israel, America, Thailand, India, Ibiza, Bali, England, Germany, Hungary, Holland, France, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland & more!

Nikola Baytala, Kontrol (http://soundcloud.com/niko
For well over a decade, Nikola has built his reputation as a DJ the old fashion way: by playing the music he loves with a passion and skill that is unmatched. Originally from New York, Nikola got his start in Los Angeles in the 90s producing parties with the legendary Doc Martin. Upon his arrival in San Francisco, Nikola quickly developed a reputation both as a record connoisseur and a vinyl manipulator, playing kinetic sets that not only showcased his technical prowess behind the decks but also his fearlessness as a music selector by not conforming to any particular genre. Known as an obsessive vinyl record collector, Nikola's extensive knowledge of music allows him to play sets comprised of the deepest house to the chunkiest techno and all the frequencies in between. Nikola is also one of the crucial components of San Francisco's minimal-techno collective, Kontrol. Founded in 2005, Kontrol almost single-handedly revived the techno scene in San Francisco and is currently one of the most respected techno parties in North America. In addition to his hectic DJing and promotional schedule, Nikola still finds time to work on production. With tracks on labels such as Robsoul, Junior Boy's Own, Large Records and Nightshift, Nikola has a long list of critically-acclaimed productions to his credit both under his own name and along with his musical production collective, S.W.A.T.

Jeff Richmond Steady (http://djjeffrichmond.com/)
Jeff Richmond is a San Francisco based DJ who loves techno. His music is defined by clean beats and poly rhythms, driving basslines, and funky, bleepy, computer glitch goodness all governed by a minimalist aesthetic that's prone to wandering into full throttle madness at the drop of a hat. Enjoy.

Scottino's range as a dj allows him to kick ass whether he's playing funky house poolside on a Sunday afternoon, or peak hour jackin' house at a New Year's Eve bash. Rumblemunk has been a musician for a long time and because of his love for the SF dance scene, added DJing to his repertoire. Not content to just play Breaks or House, Rumblemunk skips across genres, blending elusive tracks into a flow that you've never heard.
