KB14

Pusher of buttons, twister of pots. Creative but slightly strange guy. From the Netherlands, doesn’t use a mic. No discs to jock, Traktor makes the noise. Faceless selector of bleeps and bass.
Heavy into the dark vibes of Techno.
Appreciating the deeper Ambient.

djGinman

Ginman hails from The Netherlands and has been dj-ing and producing since the early 90s. Still madly in love with vinyl, but not unfamiliar with digital romances. Dark atmospheric techno is what floats his boat, but various subgenres may occur occasionally.
