A mainstay of Berlin’s techno scene Roman Lindau makes a rare London appearance with a seamless set flowing between the hard-edged techno sounds of Fachwerk to raw house. Solid and unmistakable, Roman’s sound is showcased on his recent remix of Micheal Klein’s “Dura 2 ” and the “Strange Brew” EP on Pan Pot’s Second State label.
Egg and BB favourite, Markus Suckut once again lets the music do the talking as he layers deep, textured and crisp drum-inflected techno sounds for the dynamic BB clubbing crowd. With a recent DJ Mag Sessions Live mix (Feb 17th) and his new album forthcoming on Exile, 2017 is already shaping up to be another strong year for Markus, having already imprinted his productions on labels such as Figure, Stroboscopic Artefacts and Rekids. Expect Exclusives a go-go.

Starting 2016 with six hour queues at peak times during their six day nonstop Sylvestre (New Year) party, Sisyphos has had another fabulous year of road-blocked, riotous, more-often-than-not truly magical parties- despite remaining largely under the mainstream media radar and for many inaccessible courtesy of their uber-tough (though usually friendly and fair) Berlin-friendly vibe check/ door policy.
Looking into 2017, Sisyphos leading lights (and Berlin Berlin Headliner/Residents) Jonty Skrufff and Fidelity Kastrow will also be contributing tracks to Egg's brand new label What Came First (kicking off with Jonty Skrufff's ‘Warpaint’ tried and tested on the dance floor already.
