[a:rpia:r]
A set of a DJ is in fact, a puzzle of tracks, that wants to achieve an image. Most of the times we hear only the pieces. There are only few who can create a whole. The reason is the lack of pieces in the puzzle. Here we come, trying to cover the missing things. The purpose of [a:rpia:r] is not to conquer the radio or tv. The measurement unit is not the chart, but the pure feeling and sensation on the dancefloor, in the club.
Apollonia
A collaboration between three of Paris underground’s hottest exports, 2012 saw the launch of Apollonia, the imprint and DJ outfit from Shonky, Dan Ghenacia and Dyed Soundorom.
Presenting a back2back2back spectaculaire, Apollonia DJ together for extended sets of five hours or more, following a strict one-record-each concept for the full duration of the show.
Parallel to their gigs and studio endeavours, the boys also manage their own self-titled record label, which has seen 28 releases so far, including re-releases from Point G, Callisto and Kerri Chandler, together with new music from Apollonia themselves, iO (mulen) and a bunch of tour a tour remixes inc Charles webster, The Martinez Brothers, Melchior Prod, Hold youth and many more.
Black Sun Empire
When the Utrecht-based trio of Rene Verdult and brothers Micha and Milan Heyboer chose their artist alias, they couldn’t have known it would manifest itself as a destiny to be fulfilled. But for Black Sun Empire, their title has become their fate. Known to many as the leaders of the harder, heavier and more experimental end of drum & bass, Black Sun Empire has grown into more than an artist project.
Now Black Sun Empire and its offshoot, Blackout, is a record label and events empire with a reach that stretches across the globe and has seen its three-man namesake spearhead a whole generation of new artists.
DJ Stingray
It is 3:47 AM eastern standard time in Detroit, and Sherard Ingram is smoothing out the microscopic kinks in his latest composition. While the focus of his finessing would not be audible to the average ear, his consistent drive to weave a distinctive techno masterpiece is the thread that has captured the attention of alternative audiences worldwide. Whether he is sharing his unconventional techno offerings with crowds in Berlin, Madrid, Glasgow, Amsterdam, Paris, London or at home on U.S. soil; the deep and authentic roots of this electronic visionary’s music are undeniable...
Dubfire
From global success in the commercial domain, to equal accomplishments within the underground scene, Dubfire (aka Ali Shirazinia) is an artist whose drive, talent and intuition have placed him in the top tier of electronic music artists in the world. He maintains this position within the industry with an unrelenting work ethic and a determination to innovate, evolve, and entertain. Whether it’s his involvement with Deep Dish, his solo performances at an extensive list of the world’s most influential clubs and festivals, his dubfire:live HYBRID show, running his label SCI+TEC, or simply his exploration of audio and visual technology, Dubfire is in a class of his own.
Ferry Corsten
Hailing from Rotterdam, The Netherlands, Ferry Corsten’s illustrious career is exemplified by a passion for music that began as a hobby and spiralled into a full-blown profession, as he continues to push the boundaries of trance music as much today as much as he did in his fledgling career. This is highlighted by his latest project UNITY, a concept launched in 2018 that will see Ferry collaborate with iconic trance acts throughout the year with the vision of uniting the Trance community for a bigger cause. Ferry has partnered with VH1’s Save The Music Foundation, an organisation formed to reinstate music programs for children, which has helped 2,100 schools to date. The first of these collaborations came in the form of icon Paul Oakenfold, a track that Billboard hailed as the “perfect starting point for UNITY”. This project follows on from Ferry’s 2017 sci-fi concept album ‘Blueprint’, a full length for which.
Ferry worked with House Of Cards screenwriter David H. Miller to complete, and which includes narration from Amazing Spider-Man and Exorcism Of Emily Rose actor Campbell Scott. 2017 also saw Ferry place in DJ Mag’s Top 100 poll for the 7 th consecutive year, making him the longest serving Dutch DJ in the ranking, and with past accolades and new projects taken into account it’s no surprise.
Goldie
Pioneer, graffiti artist, drum 'n' bass icon, DJ, actor and producer.
Goldie is a total original, a multi-talented complex shape shifter, who’s sold more than 2.5 million records worldwide.
Against all odds, and despite a traumatic childhood, he succeeded in unleashing his boundless creativity from a very young age, having transformed an underground British sound into a mainstream international movement, whilst collaborating with major pop icons along the way.
Mr. G (Live)
The term 'legend' is often banded around willy nilly in the dance music realm, but Mr. G, aka Colin McBean, is one of the few who can rightfully lay claim to this accolade. Having been in the game for around 2 decades now, Mr. G is widely considered to be one of the most under-rated artists about - with only true music fans appreciating his vast contribution to dance music.
He was initially part of the KCC DJ trio playing at the now legendary Confusion parties and subsequently started recording as one half of The Advent, producing many ground-breaking releases/remixes and albums, and touring the world with their intense, relentless style of techno. In 1999 Colin decided to go his own way and founded the Phoenix G label in order to create his unique brand of analogue bass-heavy electronic tech-funk, which immediately attracted props from his peers and the music press alike.
Nick Warren
Nick Warren became one of the first so-called "superstar DJs" in the mid-to-late '90s, holding down a high-profile residency at Cream in England, touring around the world, and appearing on several DJ mix albums before they became commonplace. Though he spun an eclectic array of dance styles in the late '80s and early '90s, he eventually championed the late-'90s trance sound of labels like Hooj Choons and joined the ranks of other superstar DJs like Paul Oakenfold, Sasha, and Tall Paul.
Nina Kraviz
Nina Kraviz is one of the most significant artists in the global electronic scene.The Siberian born singer, producer, song-writer and a DJ is well known as a passionate record digger and for her outstanding taste in idiosyncratic electronic music, which lead her to create her label трип (pronounced trip). In 2015 трип was chosen a record label of the year Mixmag. The Siberian taste maker is well known for her musically uncompromising energetic DJ performances, where she plays music most others wouldn’t dare and for her sincere connection to the audience. This unique feeling together with a badass attitude and charismatic stage persona have earned Nina Kraviz headliner status at all the reputable festivals worldwide.
Oliver Huntemann
Myths abound in the north when it comes to techno ground zero, and they refuse to go away. Oliver Huntemann is one of a handful of children of the north who, for what seems like an eternity, add an element of credence to the mythology. He does not, of course, live in a snowy forest or at the edge of the polar oceans. The sun does, on occasion, shine down on Hamburg. Nevertheless, there is a tendency towards hypothermic reduction in the rigorous efficiency of the Huntemann oeuvre. Images of cold storage warehouses, desolate heavy plant sites and bluish flesh are not entirely misplaced. Shards of German Engineering glimmer in his music, laced with persuasive logic, gruesome Darwinism. What remains: what works.
Pan-Pot
It can be the similarities between two people that draw them together, but it's the differences between them that create something special. It would be nothing if those two polar opposites failed to meet in the middle. Such is the story of Pan-Pot.
Tassilo and Thomas met at Berlin’s renowned School of Audio Engineering, better known as the SAE Institute, and were drawn together as they were the only two in their studies who had their sights set on the sound of techno. Their initial musical efforts placed a primacy on integrating electronic experimentation with minimal stylings while simultaneously establishing the ominous, murky sounds that have since become synonymous with their name.
Peggy Gou
Born & raised in South Korea and now residing in Berlin following several years studying in London, Peggy Gou made her recording debut in January 2016 on Radio Slave's Rekids label with 'The Art of War Part 1', featuring a remix from Galcher Lustwerk (White Material, Lustwerk Music). With a diverse range of inspirations including J Dilla, Patrick Cowley, Yellow Magic Orchestra and DJ Sotofett, her productions immediately garnered attention for the maturity of their sound coupled with an uncanny ability to create instantly accessible dancefloor records.
She soon followed that first release with the 'Day Before Yesterday' / 'Six-O-Six' 12" for Phonica White - the vinyl-only label of the internationally-renowned London record store - before returning to Rekids for the 'Art of War Part 2' EP, this time with a remix from L.I.E.S. regular Terekke. During this period her DJ bookings skyrocketed, with a debut at Berlin institution Berghain, a support slot for Moodymann at his DJ-Kicks album launch, and gigs alongside The Black Madonna, Jackmaster and DJ Koze before the end of the year...
Ricardo Villalobos
Born in Chile, raised in Germany, world citizen – that pretty much sums up Ricardo’s life, geographically speaking. In 1988 Ricardo played for the first time in a club, armed with his considerable, wide-ranging record collection. He realized his first productions with the famous Roland syntheziser, but in the beginning of the 90s, Ricardo began to upgrade his equipment and to dedicate himself to acid house and early techno sounds. In 1992 he released his first production. Today there isn’t a continent where Ricardo hasn’t played; his choice of music is trend-setting for other Djs and fans alike, and even though his tracks are never commercial, they are immensely successful and he’s well known even beyond the borders of the underground music scene. A good deal of his productions already attain cult status when the first whitelabels surface. Ricardo’s inexhaustible creativity and innovation and his unfailing feel for the crowd make him an outstanding artist in the contemporary world of electronic music.
Seth Troxler
Seth Troxler is one of electronic music’s most instantly recognisable characters, as widely regarded for his encyclopaedic knowledge of early Chicago house and minimal techno through to obscure indierock and ambient psychedelia, as he is as a cultural commentator, art curator, restaurateur and entrepreneur. Descended from a family of cowboys and Baptist preachers, he’s part African-American, part Egyptian, part Cherokee Indian but while his heritage is all-American his global outlook, and unique way of viewing the world through the prism of contemporary music culture, transcends his Mid-Western origins.
Sonja Moonear
After studying classical music in her youth, Sonja Moonear set aside the piano in favour of the turntables and bought a Roland R8. Moonear slowly began collaborating with artists like Luciano or Cosmic Chile Zürich, along with Dandy Jack as Junction SM. She has acquired an impressive international reputation, playing in clubs and festivals worldwide. Her sets reflect an enormous wealth of ideas and creativity and lead her to perpetually redefine her style. Her musical background, eclectic tastes and enviable record collection have made miss Moonear a much sought-after DJ.
Steve Lawler
You would be hard pushed to find a more in-form, in-demand and talented artist as Steve Lawler. Regarded as highly by his industry peers as he is by his huge global base of musically educated fans, Steve has been busy with the beats long before genres were but a twinkle in clublandʼs eye. An electronic artist who defies generic boundaries, he began his career organising the infamous motorway raves back in the early 90s underneath the M42 motorway.
VIVa MUSiC works as a culmination of everything thatʼs gone before; from putting on the aforementioned illegal raves, to his residency at super club Cream back in the mid 90ʼs and the success story of his 7 year residency at London’s The End. Whilst nobody could question his underground credentials, Steve’s talent as a producer has also led him to remix high profile artists such as Jamelia, Dido and Justin Timberlake. As well as recording a track for the blockbuster horror movie by Ian Softly, ʻThe Skeleton Key’, Heʼs released some of the industryʼs most well-known mix series such as the ʻDark Drumsʼ ʻLights Outʼ and the ʻVIVa Series’. Bringing his well-honed selection skills into 2016, Steve has now begun his own monthly radio show, NightLife Radio. Allowing him to champion the latest and best underground artists he’s discovered in the Who's Hot and What's Hot section, Steve also provides a live recording from one of his recent sets in each show.
tINI
It took tINI only a few years of playing in clubs to become one of Germany’s most highly acclaimed female artists in techno and house music.
Her involvement with rhythms and beats started at the age of 7, when tINI, who is originally from Munich, began playing drums, while the curiosity and passion for sounds finally led her to first production attempts on her brother’s Atari. While her general interest in music has been aroused by new romantics, wave and grunge, her first dj adventures started with underground hip hop to rap. As her interest, knowledge and skills developed, her DJ style became more electronic when she stumbled upon Moodymann’s “Amerika”.
Zip
Zip co-founder of the label Perlon, is familiar with the dancefloors around the world and famous for his tremendous minimal shifts within the 4/4 scheme. He has an illustrious musical history which began in 1986. as singer in the band Second Voice. In 1992 he moved to Frankfurt and joined the EBM band Bigod 20. Now he is a regular guest DJ in clubs around the world and holds residencies at Robert Johnson (Offenbach) and the Panorama Bar (Berlin). He participates in the Narod Niki project, occasional collective laptop live jams initiated by Ricardo Villalobos and Richie Hawtin. He has released tracks and remixes on Perlon, Playhouse, Force Inc, Novamute and others.

EPIZODE is an international festival located in Southeast Asia, in Vietnam’s biggest island - Phu Quoc.

 

Festival’s main goal is creating a completely new format in the region, with the main focus on the contemporary art and music.

 

EPIZODE is a unique opportunity for locals and random travelers to take part in the establishment of the modern culture, as well as for the Westerners and residents of neighboring continents, who are searching for exotics.

And while the Northern hemisphere is covered by snow and the thermometer doesn’t rise above zero, here in Phu Quoc, surrounded by wild palm trees, white beaches and ocean waves, everyone can, not only get the necessary dosage of vitamin D, but also participate in the bloom of an unique creative environment.

 

The third EPIZODE will be held from December 28, 2018 to January 8, 2019 at the already known Long Beach territory, at the western part of Phu Quoc Island in Vietnam.
