big with: Matt Walsh, Jef K, Kolombo, Cosmo Vitelli, Joakim, Luke Solomun, Morpheus, Slam, Alexkid, Anthony Collins,... Meet Sex Judas (Sex to his mother). A sexual vigilante and underground musical entrepreneur working in tandem with his trusted sidekick Ricky since the dawn of time (or the death of Jesus). Myth has it that after the infamous >kiss<, Judas was damned to live on earth for eternity. He decided to make the best of it and delved head first into his true passion, music. Known as a motherfucker on the >Uggav< since his early teens, he emerged in the underground sounds of Judea and never looked back. Judas & Ricky state they are on a mission to play music that reflects the real life, in all its horny, absurd, joyous and yes sometimes evil ways…with emphasis on the bass of course! So what you now hold in your hands is the glorious first vinyl offering from Sex Judas and Ricky >Sex according to Judas< telling the story as it is, blending the old school sounds of Chicago with a modern day longing for bass and ass, with a steaming sex toy edit by Tim from Paris to go.

HECTOR

Desolat // Berlin (MEX)

Hector's signature lies as much in his deft melodic touches and powerfully driving beats, as it does in his relentless forward motion and transformation.

The journey so far has taken him from Mexico to England and Germany, from the DJ booth of Guadalajara's Bar Americas, to releases for labels like Desolat, Tsuba, 2020 Vision and Mobilee, with an extended stint behind the counter of London's famed Phonica Records in between.

Hector's eventual relocation to Berlin coincided with even more accelerated momentum for the DJ and producer; he has since criss-crossed the globe, performing at festivals like Time Warp, DEMF, Kazantip, Awakenings, BPM, Hideout and Sunwaves, alongside club sets for Tokyo's Womb, Space Miami,  Fabric London and New York's Output, while spearheading tours of North & South America, and making regular appearances at Ibiza institutions Music On, Carl Cox - Revolution, Enter. and Used + Abused.

On the eve of the launch of Stone Raiders - a new mixed-media venture that will encompass warehouse parties, a clothing brand, and a record label - Hector is poised to add ever more accomplishments to a list that already has him marked as a talent to watch.

Hector began DJing at the age of 16 after hearing visiting European DJs play on their rare trips to his home city, Guadalajara. Inspired by the sounds of Carl Craig, Moodymann, The Timewriter and Terry Lee Brown Jr., Hector realized that his future lay in music. After finding his feet at Bar Americas, Hector headed for England, where fell in love with the capital’s music scene. While playing in Ibiza, he befriended Simon Rigg of Phonica Records and soon began working at the Soho store upon his return to the city.

After having the honour of being first producer to release on Phonica's in-house label, Hector developed a strong following through acclaimed releases and remixes on 8Bit, Watergate, One Records, Siesta Records, Saved Records. A deep knowledge and infectious passion for cutting-edge music have made Hector a beloved figure on the international club circuit, and he continues to relish the opportunity to play alongside his heroes and friends like Loco Dice, Carl Cox, and Richie Hawtin.

Hector's ambitions continue to stretch beyond the seen horizon as he constantly seeks to evolve, and foundations he has laid down so far ensure an even brighter future.

DAVE VEGA

Exone / Memento Records / Sonido Records // Berlin (GER)

Dave Vega started DJing in the late '90s in Karlsruhe in the south of Germany. It was here that Vega and friends organized illegal techno parties at secret outdoor locations, with soundsystems so loud that people in other villages kilometers away could feel the bass. People would come from all over to party and would stay all day and all night. Inevitably these parties always led to fracases with the police...

After some years organising parties, Dave was bitten by the music bug and finally made the step from the dancefloor to the other side of the dj booth. In 2000, he moved to Frankfurt and began work as a music journalist. Later he met people like Ata and Heiko MSO who offered him work at their revered label empire, comprising Playhouse, Klang Elektronik and Ongaku. A residency in the famous Robert Johnson club soon followed, and Dave started to play all over the world. Over the years, he has played countless gigs in clubs like Berlin's Panorama Bar, Harry Klein and Rote Sonne in Munich, Rex Club in Paris, Nitza Club in Barcelona, Sugar Factory in Amsterdam, Space in Ibiza, and lately even a boat party in Honolulu, to list a few...

In 2007, Vega finally made the move to Berlin. Fueled by the energy of the city and a decade of DJing, he started producing his own music. Dave Vega released his first EP in March 2011 on the Berlin based label, Exone. His second EP was released on the Canadian label Thoughtless Music in May 2011, followed by another EP on Exone in the beginning of 2012. After that he released a bunch of remixes on different labels. Vega's roots have always been somewhere between House and Techno - that's what he plays and and still drives him after almost 15 years of electronic music experience.

ROBERT BABICZ

Babiczstyle / Systematic Recordings / Audiomatique / Kompakt // Cologne (GER)

ROBERT BABICZ - ON A MISSION WITH SOUNDS AND EMOTIONS

a.k.a.
Rob Acid / Dicabor / Sontec / Atlon Inc. / Department of Dance / Acid Warrior / Pumpgun Pro / Colone / Origin / Tannenhof / Twirl / Church Window

Robert’s musical output is inspiring and staggering. A true one-man operation, he writes, records and performs solo; commanding an ever-expanding touring schedule, tailoring the music he creates to the cities he visits. But that’s only part of the puzzle, Babicz's art is comprised of more than just his music. He films everything. Using his music to open doors and build relationships with people in only the way music can, he then records his experiences and interaction on film, both still and moving, later editing the images together as a picture track to his audio. Robert creates short films that capture the emotions, colours and feel of his trips, his music and the people he finds who want to be part of that experience. In turn these then also have an effect on his music colouring his emotive, unique take on electronica with a very human feel.

HERON

Limikola / KMS Records / Soma // Münster (GER)

Many techno artists’ biographies start off by singing the praises of an extremely early, extraordinary talent on synthesizers and other electronic devices. In Heron’s case, things are a bit different.
Martin Spittel aka Heron, has been shaped musically since his early childhood; his influences are as diverse as you can possibly imagine (hint: it ranges from Trash Metal to Detroit Techno). Martin has an extraordinary passion for nature, wild life and especially birds. This symbiosis from the love of nature and musical influences from his childhood are a direct reflection of Heron’s entire life and career.
Following the scream of the waders (limicoline birds), he moved to picturesque island Norderney in Germany back in 2005. There, exploring the island’s national park, he decided to live up to his ever-growing enthusiasm for nature by studying landscape ecology at the University of Mu?nster. It was this relocation to Mu?nster that initially sparked his music career: the months in Norderney served as inspiration for his own label “Limikola” (founded in 2008), which now achieves enormous support from both DJs and fans all over the world.
Producing his own music, running a successful label and club night, doing a radio show and DJ’ing, are all skills Heron has crafted to perfection over the years. This hard work started to pay off in early 2008 during the season’s opening at Time Warp, when Richie Hawtin played all three tracks from his Retro EP.
Heron’s journey continued with his bombshell track “Welcome to the Adventure Club” and pushed further forward with other big releases for Synewave, Supdub, Swap, micro.fon, Prosthetic Pressings and Hans Bouffmyhre’s Sleaze Records, to name a few.
Besides all these projects, Heron felt the need to keep focus on his old school roots more and more. With remixes for Damon Wild's Techno classic "Avion", Tim Grothe and Ziel 100 as well as with his release Rivie?re du De?troit on Kevin Saunderson’s KMS Records, Heron showed us where he truly comes from.
