15 YEARS of TRUTH
Saturday, 29 November 2014
Corner of Old Pretoria Main Road and James Crescent, Midrand
Presale available online via webtickets (R120) >>http://bit.ly/1tHrHMy
Door price: R150
STIMMING (Diynamic / GERMANY)
His understated yet masterfully executed production has led critics to tag his music as “intelligent club music”. With his deep rhythms, clean sounds, epic breakdowns and atmospheric build-ups, Stimming has crafted his own distinct sound— a sound that has established him as the scene’s most exciting talents in recent years.
DASHDOT (Kraftek / BRAZIL)
Electronic music’s global renaissance in the last couple of years has been led in Latin America by Brazil and Dashdot members Felipe Flora and AndreGuarda represent a new generation of DJs who have elevated Brazil’s electronic pedigree.
Although Flora and Guarda’s collaboration is fairly new (the pair formed Dashdot in February 2012 after meeting on the São Paulo house circuit), things took off quickly and they’ve already taken their heady, synth-heavy house all over the world via a jam-packed tour schedule.
ANNA (Kraftek / BRAZIL)
ANNA is one of Brazil’s finest exports, exploding into the electronic music scene as one of the most exciting female DJs & producers of this new era. With an intense love of music from an early age, she has been rocking clubs in her home country since she was 15 years old, and it shows!
Very comfortable in the producer’s chair, she has been releasing on some of the scene’s most consistent labels – including Turbo Recordings, Click Records, Tronic, Kraftek, Witty Tunes, Bla Bla and Toolroom Records.
Sao Paulo incoming!
Lake People *Live (Permanent Vacation / Germany)
Rooted in the depths of melancholic electronica and paired with a longstanding techno past, Lake People is the solo project of Martin Enke – who now produces a variety of house which, despite, or possibly because of – its deepness and organic warmth, elegantly masters the balancing act between dance floor and seclusion.
Releases on Permanent Vacation and Connaisseur Rec., (amongst others) and a continuously growing output of remixes, for instance for Lusine and Chymera, speak for themselves. It’s hardly surprising that his “Point” EP on Krakatau not only found its way to Dixon’s Boiler Room set but also to numerous record bags.
@THE THRILLSEEKERS (Armada / UK)
As one of the main players within the trance scene for well over a decade now and producer of some of the biggest tunes to grace clubland, Truth proudly welcomes Mr Steve Helstrip AKA The Thrillseekers to the BASEMENT!
DJ, producer and remixer working with the likes of Tiësto, Ferry Corsten, Timo Maas, Sonique, Chicane, Blank & Jones, and Seb Fontaine, The Thrillseekers has been at the forefront of the trance genre since the release in 1998 of his critically acclaimed track, “Synaesthesia (Fly Away)”.
Come prepared, a legend graces the decks!
