Christian Burkhardt is an artist truly absorbed with the range of sonic possibilities. A producer not content with existing within the realms of House and Techno, but one that is determined to further stretch its limits with his signature sound. A native of Heidelberg, Germany, who along with the likes of Reboot, Johnny D, Markus Fix, Ray Okpara - all from the country‘s Southwest quarter - have carved out a niche‘ revolution within House and Techno that has influenced the global electronic music community nearly as much as Detroit, Chicago, London and Berlin have in there respective years of glory.
His earliest productions found there way onto Oslo, Raum...Musik, Deep Vibes and Area Remote. All regarded as contemporary go-to labels for quality House music. In 1998, ‚Doubledub‘ surged through the speakers of main floor events and fueled after hours across Europe and beyond. Since then it‘s been clear that Burkhardt approaches music making with a strong detail to complex rhythms that not only move your body, but rise above generic club music. His masterful use of technology meshed with the warm sounds of analog gear and over 13 years of music production experience, have tinged his production with a unique sound that other producers praise and DJ‘s never seem to stop playing. Solely on the basis of his productions, he has been invited to present the sounds of his Offenbach studio in the form of a live set, on nearly every continent. Live sets which are by no means a playlist of Burkhardt hits. This melody and groove obsessed sound pioneer tweaks, layers and twists his sounds differently for every event. Inspiring even himself with every performance, increasing the passion of his own purpose. 2010 brought Burkhardt to a new level with his first album project, Revolver, co-produced with Einzelkind on their new Jax label. You certainly know some of their past collaborations as the infamous La Peña. His long list of remixes for Tsuba Records, Mobilee and Deep Vibes were still ringing in club lands ears, as a new batch of original material on Oslo, Raum...Musik and Cocoon were given the stamp of approval 2011, with constant rotation in clubs, radio and podcasts. His success is measured only in the pleasure that he finds in making music.
A feeling that may start in the club, but it never seems ends there.

Mihai Popoviciu, from Sibiu in Romania, is considered one of the most innovative eastern European producers of electronic music today. He was born in Romania in 1981 and was drawn to the fast-growing rave scene of the 90’s. He started producing music in 2001 being influenced by the techno and house virus and it took many years of experiments untill he came up with his first vinyl release on DJ Hell’s imprint Gigolo Records in 2005. Since then he has steadily added chapters to his personal success story with solo projects and those with partners like Markus Homm or Jay Bliss. In June 2007, his EP "First Contact" was released on Pascal Feos' label Level Non Zero Recordings. Mihai joined the Highgrade family together with Markus Homm in late 2007 and from then on the duo have had several successful releases on the Berlin based imprint like “Deaf Sniper”, “Lagoon” or “Urban Ballroom”. In 2009 the discographic activity of Mihai got very intense with releases on highly respected european labels such as Fear Of Flying, Hudd Traxx, Bang Bang or Diynamic. The club hit Bis Co (produced together with Markus and Jay Bliss) was featured in all major dance charts across Europe and confirmed once again his fine producing skills. When teaming up with Jay Bliss the duo call themselves Hermannstadt Collective, a dj and producing team that has made big waves on the dancefloors all over the world with tracks like “Raw Fruit”, “Thirst Day” or “Safety Match”. Mr. Popoviciu is the kind of producer that likes to innovate and to allways refine his varied sound pallette surprising the audiance in the best way.
It’s not a big surprise that Mihai’s reputation as a DJ grew fast in the past years taking him to Europe’s most important clubs and venues. His flavourous dj sets have a distinctive peronal touch delivering you a perfectly balanced mixture of groovy beats, warm pads and musical emotiones that will get you addicted.
