On his way to becoming one of today’s most praised and sought after DJ/producers &ME has built the well earned reputation as a gifted producer and DJ extraordinaire and, after his whirlwind Sydney show in early 2016 will finally return to Australian stages bringing his unique blend of techno and soulful housemusic.
There is no denying genre defining ANDHIM (who’s self described style of “Super House”) are enthralling fans throughout Europe and Asia and will be bringing their soul and passion to the Electric Gardens MIXMAG Main Stage.
Joining the legendary Jamie Jones, &ME, and a very special guest yet to be announced, Brazil-born and Barcelona-based, ANNA will set the CODE stage alight! Creating success out of everything she turns to, whether producing originals for well-respected labels, remixing top-flight acts or moving dance floors the world over Anna is now in global demand.
Producer, DJ, cinematic synchroniser and modern day composer, EELKE KLEIJN is a rare breed of music maker, and the world has only scratched the service of his talents. Whether it is own productions or remixing the likes of Arcade Fire there is nothing his Midas touch cannot handle!
Inspired by a simple desire to be a part of Tel Aviv’s flourishing club scene, famous for it’s wild enthusiasm and uninhibited atmosphere, GUY J launched his music-writing career at the early age of 14. Now on the path to becoming one of the premier artists of this electronic generation, his disregard for boundaries has catapulted his genre-diverse Lost & Found imprint into one of the most highly regarded brands in the underground.
Recognised as a leading light in the ever-growing Tel Aviv underground music scene and with his own distinctive musical template that has seen him establish himself as a top DJ/Producer worldwide, GUY MANTZUR is instantly recognisable through his unique hypnotic melodies and seductive grooves, both in his productions and his DJ sets. His unique style and unrivalled technique allows him to regularly play alongside a very diverse selection of international stars, such as Sasha, John Digweed, Pan-Pot, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Tiesto, Nic Fanciulli. As a result, Guy’s skills behind the decks have been recognised at the prestigious XL Awards, where he received the accolade of “Israel’s Best Underground DJ.
If ever there was an artist who doesn’t need an introduction, it has to be the man known to music lovers the world over simply as El Maestro. Throughout his rise to become both a foundation and a founding father of the underground house scene, the name Hernan Cattaneo has become synonymous with dedication, passion and an unwavering commitment to championing a unique quality of music that is hard to define, but instantly recognisable as his signature sound. Following on from the huge success of last years B2B between Hernan and Nick Warren, a highlight for so many fans, Electric Gardens decided to ramp it up a notch and have confirmed for the DIGITAL THERAPY Stage, Hernan will go B2B Guy J in what promises to be a truly unique experience for Australian fans!
Finally, with his first return to Australian festival stages since 2010, and a career spanning more than a decade, Grammy- nominated heavyweight DJ and Producer MARK KNIGHT is easily one of the most respected UK house heavy weights and not to be missed.
