FUKKK OFFF (FREAKZ ME OUT / HAMBURG)
Fukkk Offf aka Bastian Heerhorst has been renowned for some time in his hometown for storming live sets in the clubs scattered around Hamburg's red light district. "Die sündige Meile" or "the sinful mile" as it is known has seen its walls shaked and thighs quaked by the throbbing depths of Bastian's big room Fukkk Offf Sound.
Many a night you would witness the frustration on the faces of lonely old men as they realized that the brothels were empty. All the girls would no doubt be down at the club shaking their money makers to the sounds of our young hero. These same streets are where the Beatles made their way in the early 60s. John Lennon was once quoted as saying "I might have been born in Liverpool, but I grew up in Hamburg".
DON RIMINI ( MENTAL GROOVE / PARIS)
ARE YOU READY FOR the MAIN ACT of the LOVE ELECTRO! Festival 2011 on our IRIEDAILY MAIN STAGE DON RIMINI FROM PARIS? You are? BUST A MOVE!!!
Looking back, one could be amused by the fact that Xavier Gasseman, best known as Don Rimini, first burst onto the scene with a track titled Let Me Back Up – rather ironic coming from a guy who hasn't lifted his finger off the fast-forward button since 2007 . Four EPs, innumerable gigs, and within the last year only, 120 DJ sets spanning over 5 continents, leaving Australia, America, Japan and Europe with their head spinning and not as little as a rose on their pillow. Sets that are intense, hysterical, frantic even; truly an experience. Don Rimini is never predictable (his vigorous take on Young MC's Bust A Move for the legendary Delicious Vinyl imprint, for one) yet inevitably all over every spot you'd wish to see him at (breaking legs on the dancefloors of Barcelona's Sonar, I Love Techno in Gent, or Hard Fest in Los Angeles). He has accumulated remixes like as many more-than-legitimate kids (Sinden & Rye Rye, Designer Drugs, Steel Lord...), and dropped his own hymns for people to feast on in clubs worldwide (2 Many DJs, A-Track and Diplo can be counted amongst the craving predators).
LONG BEACH CITY KIDS (LOS ANGELES / USA)
Here you get it, LONG BEACH CITY KIDS directly from LOS ANGELES / USA). We proudly present there first Italy Gig! AWESOME! Get ready for awesome sounds directly from the STATES!
Welcome to Long Beach, the West coast capitol of throw-back jams, bass bumping trunks, and candy painted Cadillac's. Right here, among the golden grills and Reebok pumps, comes Alex Noblé and Luigi III, two young, disco inspired DJ/producers who make up the electronic dance duo, LBCK. The name, which is an acronym that can be interpreted to have a number of meanings, is most commonly hailed as "Long Beach City Kids." Since originally forming in late 2009, LBCK has made an addition to their lineup, bringing aboard Luigi III; the pair have been spreading the love ever since. Their unique style is highly versatile, but can be best described as the uncharted realm where disco funk meets crafty synths, epic builds and viciously heavy drums. !
LBCK is no newcomer to the stage. Their talent as producers has gained them world- wide recognition through the blogosphere and the outrageous energy of their live performance has earned them a rapidly growing fan base. Since their debut in 2009, the duo has garnered mass attention by appearing on more than 350 blogs and music platforms across the web. This attention has allowed for performances with many successful acts such as: Major Lazer, Treasure Fingers, Classixx, Steve Aoki, Them Jeans, DCUP, Villians, Steed Lord, Felix Cartal and an assortment of others. In October 2010, LBCK released their debut EP/single titled "START" on French record label On The Fruit Records, featuring remixes & an award-winning music video. The EP continues to be well-received collecting support from Breakbot, Busy P, Erol Alkan, Treasure Fingers, and even BBC Radio 1's Jaymo & Andy George. In November 2010, "START" was featured in Virgin Mega France's "Le Meilleur De La Scène Indé 2010" (The Best of the Indie Scene 2010). Upcoming plans for LBCK include the production of a new EP & and a Winter tour. Stay tuned!
TYLER NØZE (NEON DISCO / MILAN)
"il dj che rappresenta la Milano sotterranea,
leader della raveband Crowolf e resident della serata culto Neon Disco.
cela la propria identità dietro un mantello di mistero e pseudonimi,
mentre tutti cercano i propri 15 minuti di celebrità promessi da Warhol
lui fugge dall'attenzione di media e mainstream.
Non troverete nulla su di lui attraverso i network istituzionali
e se vorrete sentire le sua edit di SebastiAn o dei Beastie Boys
dovrete essere presenti il 4 gennaio al Love Electro.
se siamo fortunati è capace che ci faccia sentire anche qualcosa del suo progetto horror industrial
che evoca l'inquietudine di Dario Argento e l'umanità dannata di Carpenter"
Check out the VIDEO! It will BURN YOU DOWN!

IKKI – born in 1980 as Xavier Forfait – lives in Madrid and is half French half Spanish. As teenager he used to play the guitar in a metalband. In summer 2006 he started producing his own tracks featured by Nina Martine. They even made a song together with The Bloody Beetroots in 2007 called Pinky Girl. Tired of the strict separationf of metal and electro he decided to put them together and began in summer 2007 as IKKI to remix well known metal songs.
IKKI archived it to play in many underground clubs but also being in the setlist of many international DJs. In te meanwhile he was able to molt himself as the god-father of Madrids electro scene: He acts as a producer, hes got a studio and two years ago he built up his own label "Nu Bakalei". Furthermore he was a resident Dj in Madrids number one nightclub: Soundsick.
It isn't a secret that metal lovers aren't often in partyclubs – IKKI archived it to bridge between both scenes. There fore he acts as aftershow DJ on metal concerts and likewise on electroparties. The tunes of his first EP "BAKALA BANGER" he produced alone in a cellar, isolated from outside world.
IKKI shows hot electrocovers of well knows metal songs, wich try up every club.
THE INTEGRALS (OH MY GOD IT'S TECHNO MUSIC, Vienna)
The Integrals are a duo consisting of the two austrian producers Greg and Jo. They started out producing together after meeting on a schooltrip to Barcelona. A year later they moved their studio, they had built in in an old air raid shelter beneath Linz, to Vienna, where they started to explore the scene and played their first gigs. After getting international attention through some bootlegs they did, they very soon received Remix- and Bookingrequests from all around Europe and did official Remixes for Azzido Da Bass, Haezer, Noize Generation, A.G.Trio, just to name a few.
Now you could recite the usual list of accomplishments like getting support from cool guys like Steve Aoki, Kissy Sell Out, Dirty Disco Youth, or sharing the stage with Wolfgang Gartner, Erol Alkan, Sound Of Stereo, TAI and more - but Greg and Jo are not that kind of guys. For them all that counts is their music. Peace.

It got a good success by the critics and by the web radios, which appreciated its free and easy style that makes the track cool and fresh. The rejection of the merciless electro club dictatorship, imposed by the now-a-days music scene, lead him to experiment with new sonorities. His identification badges are crystalline samplings and bouffant synthesizers. At the beginning of 2009 he proved himself to be a superlative and visionary deejay with the Airys's remix "Vedo in te".
In the same year he sign with "La Valigetta" and release his first EP "The Bruxism Groove"

ENFANT TERRIBLE (Get Stroke, Berlin)
What a terrible child, that hang around every night in the clubs of the German capital.
The Berlin DJ enfant terrible was young when he found his way to the music; a journey of different music styles began. Starting with breakbeat and techno to electro, everything was there. Consequently his performences at the different clubs were very colorful; Watergate, Cassiopeia, Icon just to name a few. Because of its own project called <2 on 1 Stroke> the interest in a loud and creaky-bassy electro came bigger. He already played with Cyberpunkers, FUKKK OFFF, DDY, Sexinvaders and many more.
It is almost a synergy of a rock concert and a ride on a volcano, an eruption of the moshing crowd.
THE 2000 ( DEEPSESSION / ROME)
Powerful drums from the Hip Hop and hard basses from Punk-Rock and Metal are the main "touch" of the duo. In every track or remix that The 2000 produced are characterized primarily in giving this very special touch to their productions.

Subdudes aka Die Bossbuabn is a creative collective of three young punks hailing from the poor countryside somewhere south-ways of Bozen. They are one of the first drum & bass producers to make a significant dent among local dnb crowd creating a bridge of sorts brutalizing, overdriving, near industrial breakbeats and buzzing, hoover-esque basslines on tracks such as the Remix of Mystification's "Show Me How To Cry" an "Landen". Subdudes' most obvious influence are the local darkstep pioneers from Culture Assault Records, Corax, capturing the attention of the ever-darkening drum & bass scene by taking the harsh, dusty darkcore to a new level of grim yet addictive dancefloor experience.
While Tony is still rinsing it on snarebeat madness and 140 bpm tunage, ÷rf & Gabba back in 2009 had their try to spin the electrofreaking tunage. A year later they debuting at the Electrolauben with chaotic soup of electro driven sound blended with some growling dubstep beats.
