In the main room, Gerald VDH, founding father of Meat Market concept in Vienna will deliver the beats. Already seen in MMA or even Berghain / Panorama Bar, trust him for the selection. Two Seb's will support him as we receive Seba Lecompte and, of course, our resident Seb Legrand.

| Rossko (FUSE London / INFUSE)
Raver. Record Collector. Music head. 10 years Resident DJ. One of the few that has made his name through his quality of selection alone.
Immersed in London’s rich electronic music scene over the last 20 years Rossko has carved out an original sound & armed himself with a relentless library focused on cutting-edge House & Techno with a knack of unearthing forgotten gems of the past.
His DJ sets are always slick and powerful, those who have witnessed him perform will note not only his diversity in his track selection, but his ability to create a vibe rather than just play to a crowd. With his upfront grooves and infectious vibes behind the decks, his DJ output reflects his passion for the music, capturing an artistry and a total understanding of the dance floor meaning he can be found at both large scale events such as Sonus Festival, Cocoon In The Park & DC10 as well as small intimate venues such as Robert Johnson, Sub Club & CDV.
The Berlin-based artist, well-known for his clandestine 'Cerca Trova' parties, held in illegal basements & warehouses from 2006 pathed the way for marathon sets and legendary after-hours nurturing his skills and reputation in the city.
This was his base which leads to an invitation from Fuse to become one of the original residents starting at the scene-defining 93 Feet East in 2008, Amnesia in Ibiza in 2017 and a world tour honouring its 10th anniversary this year.
In Addition, he continues as A&R for Infuse (Sister label of Fuse London), featuring regularly on Rinse FM, Fuse's monthly prime time radio slot as well his continuing his reputable project & label with Archie Hamilton as ‘Arkityp’ - all of which will see releases from the above this year.
2019 is already shaping to eclipse the success of last year with more focus on production & output with the launch of his own record label ‘Late Night Skanking’.
This will be his headquarters giving him the freedom to connect the dots between Techno, House & Garage with a nod to the past but a message from the future. Rossko kick-starts the label off with the 1st release weaving his own unique sound and blurring the lines with his direction,
It seems only one word can describe the year ahead in his own words, he simply replies; XL.
| Gerald VDH (MEAT Recordings)
Gerald is the founder and mastermind behind the infamous MEAT MARKET parties in Vienna, Austria’s thriving capital city. For almost a decade he has been running an outrageous amount of techno nights, all of which are well rooted in the LGBTIQ+ community.
Being a DJ first and a producer second, Gerald’s main ambition is to travel and play his favorite music in front of audiences all around the globe. His sets explore various genres of electronic music, while maintaining the balanced energy to keep a dancefloor busy for hours. With gigs in clubs like MMA Munich, Distillery Leipzig and (his favorite place on earth) Berghain Berlin, Gerald made a name for himself as a performer and music lover, who would give his life to safe a punter’s night out.
In 2017 Gerald started the label MEAT RECORDINGS with his fellow musicians MATT MOR and SPECIFIC OBJECTS. The imprint specializes in pret a dancer techno music with a focus on quality and groove. MEAT RECORDINGS is also responsible for soundtrack of the movie NEVRLAND, which will hit theatres around the world in winter 2019. The label has seen twelve releases so far, five of which have also been published on vinyl. Watch out for more releases in the very new future.
| Seba Lecompte (Segment Recordings / Trapez / Keller)
Seba Lecompte started collecting vinyl in the early nineties. One of Belgium’s finest and hardest working DJs, he is the guy behind the legendary Bang The Box parties at Decadance in Ghent and also plays regularly across Europe. His first release came out in 2004 and up until today, he has slowly made a name for himself with releases on Riot Recordings, Reload Black, Recode Musik, Girafe Sauvage, Krannit Recordings, Polar Noise, Balance 432, What Happens and many more!
| DJAXX (Club Vaag)
Djaxx has always been different from the other kids. At the age of 6, while everyone else was outside playing hide & seek, Djaxx was discovering music whenever he was given the chance. By the time he turned 13, while his mates were still wondering how to hide their braces when smiling, Djaxx was already walking on thin ice by trying to mix any tune with a house beat in it. It was not much later that he won his first DJ contest at age 15 and embarked on a real DJ’ing journey. This soon lead him to join forces with another all-round electronic music lover called Neurotique.
Their love for almost the entire range of eclectic music ranging from underground deep house to mainstream electro has always been one of the biggest assets of Djaxx & Neurotique. A versatility which has resulted in a track record one can be proud of; next to their residency in De Kaai, they have played 6 times in a row at Tomorrowland (including opening the mainstage in 2013) and also regularly frequent the DJ-booth of Belgium’s finest clubs such as Café d’Anvers, La Rocca and Culture Club. And did we mention Tomorrowworld in Altanta already?
Needless to say that such a DJ-career and all-round feel for ecletic music requires dedication and passion. However, Djaxx always felt an urge to elaborate on his more specific musical roots. As such, diving into deephouse on his own next to his collaboration with Neurotique enabled him to let his true colours shine through. Releasing his first track in 2014 with Deep Arena Records, Djaxx is dedicated to carry away his audience on a splendid mix of his own productions and the most hidden treasures of deephouse and UK-influenced Tech House.
Next to his own tunes, Djaxx’s quest for quality Housemusic has lead him and some likeminded friends on a true passion project to bring his Antwerp crowd the best possible Housemusic: a party concept called “High on House”. Only a year far, these parties have already become known in the Antwerp house scene for their warm atmosphere and amazing vibes, welcoming the very best of the best such as Santé, Oxia, Jacky, Truth Be Told, Ramon Tapia, Di Chiara Brothers and many more.
Wether it be through his own releases, through a heartwarming DJ-set or through the passionate DJ’s he welcomes at his parties, Djaxx should be considered a true added value for the Antwerp party scene. Definitely someone to watch out for!
