Tommy Four Seven: 3hr Set [47.Berlin.GER]
Berlin-based Tommy Four Seven has established himself as a leading name in today’s techno scene. The widespread reception of his DJ sets, a skill much refined during his early years as resident of London’s Fire club, has seen him play at some of the world’s leading venues. Tommy’s sets invariably encompass a rich variety of styles, drifting seamlessly between the straight up techno required of the hour, and his signature, more broken form that is laced through his ever-expanding discography.
The final part of his artistic repertoire is 47, an established party series with a supporting label. The aim is to encourage emerging talent, whilst also recognising established artists in the scene who have helped to shape Tommy’s sound. Previous acts have included Ancient Methods, SNTS, UVB, Shlømo, Killawatt and I/Y. 47 began as a regular event Berlin’s Arena nightclub, but 2015 saw the series grow and cross international borders to Paris and Amsterdam, with more events slated for 2016. Guests are also invited to contribute to the label’s renowned Various Artists compilations.

Anthony Jimenez: [Blank Code.Detroit.USA]
Anthony Jimenez got his start as a DJ back in 2003. Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, the DJ and producer was drawn to the dark and cavernous sound of techno when he moved to Detroit. Driven by the raw and primal nature of techno, his DJ arrangements and original productions are characterized by broody and deep musical explorations peppered with hypnotic and rhythmic sonic experiences.
Anthony’s productions are a mirror representation of the hard word and tenacity he adopts in every studio session and DJ set. Time Under Tension, his 2014 debut EP released on Blank Code, made waves in the international techno scene, receiving a mass of support and plays. His signature sound has made him a local favorite in a city that not only gave birth to techno-but continues to push the envelope for the genre’s future progress with a selection of top-tier talent in both the producer and DJ categories. Jimenez has landed coveted spots alongside some of techno’s greatest names in the international touring circuit including: Function, Matrixxman, Edit Select, Monoloc, Silent Servant, Dasha Rush, Regis, Perc, Adam X, Headless Horseman, and Dustin Zahn.
