Artist info:


Ata is a DJ and founder of the labels Playhouse, Klang, Ongaku. He also runs the 250-capacity Robert Johnson club in Offenbach, Frankfurt-Am-Main, one of the world’s premier techno clubs.

Ata started DJing in the late eighties. In 1992 he founded the record shop Delirium with Heiko Schäfer, aka Heiko M/S/O, where he established the labels Ongaku Musik, Klang Elektronik and Playhouse in 1993. Together with Heiko Schäfer and Jörg Henze, he DJed variously as Delirium Posse, Heiko & Ata, Ata & Jörg and Heiko & Jörg.

Beside DJing, Ata founded the first ‘real’ clubnight in Frankfurt for modern house and deep house, the Wild Pitch Club at the Nachtleben-Club. After years of parties he closed the concept and opened the Robert-Johnson 1999. Through the DJ he has booked, his own DJ sets and the club itself, he made the Robert-Johnson to one of the most important clubs worldwide for electronic music.





Esther Silex

Esther Silex – deejay extraordinaire,
Colognian woman-about-town and very dear new addition to the Studio Barnhus family. She has an unquestionable status as an impassioned powerhouse with enough West German swagger to create timeless music with equal..

“Dance, dance otherwise we are lost” the larger than life modern dance choreographer and ballet director Pina Bausch once said. The Cologne based DJ and producer Esther Silex deeply believes in those words of wisdom and took the statement as one of many inspirations behind her debut EP “Pachamama” for Sweden’s finest free spirited electronic music label Studio Barnhus.

The EP title refers to the old mother earth goddess of the indigenous people of the Andes, who is an independent deity that has her own creative power to sustain life on planet earth. For Silex she is a divineness that follows her on each and every step as a female with groove in her heart.

After a nomadic upbringing all around Europe she started to play records at the tender age of 17 and quickly became an integral part of Cologne’s house and techno scene. Her sets are anything but predictable, with an eclectic selection that somehow weaves seamlessly through techno and house to soul, funk, afro and disco. The three tracks named ‘Hans’, ‘Heinrich’ and ‘Oskar’ of her debut release, reflect this musical diversity and don’t adhere to any formula, whilst remaining entirely and explosively dance floor friendly.




Narcis Junior

Narcis Junior is one of the pionners of electronic music in his home country, Bosnia and Herzegovina. His first dj skills were in Lonodn’s underground clubs in mid 90’s. Sets that he is performing are full of energy and no one can remain unaffected.

Charlie Roennez

Roennez`s love for music began at an early age when he was exposed to a vast variety of music as a youth. Roennez was provided with a unique musical base filled with selections from every genre of music. At the age of sixteen, Roennez started as a dj building his own collection that included all types of music ranging from traditional to hitlist music and then experimented with his taste by playing his chosen selections in genres like house, r&b and dancemusic. By college he honed his natural given talent for selecting and playing music by working as a dj for events & nightclubs.

Past the years Roennez have build an competence in music by running a music store for 4 years and been working in the nightclub industry the past 17 years working his way up to leader position. And all the way the music has followed him.

During this years playing as often as possible as a dj..
And do still…

Roennez `s lidenskap for musikk begynte i ung alder da han lyttet til et stort utvalg av musikk som ungdom. Roennez var utstyrt med en unik musikalsk base fylt med utvalg fra alle sjangre av musikk. I en alder av seksten begynte Roennez som dj å bygge sin egen samling som inkluderte alle typer musikk som spenner seg fra det tradisjonelle til hitlistemusikk og eksperimenterte med egen smak sin ved å spille sine favorittsjangere som house, r&b og dancemusic. Med årene har han finpusset dette, ved å spille som dj for utallige arrangementer og nattklubber rundt om i Norge.

Siste årene har Roennez bygd en kompetanse i musikk ved å drive en musikkbutikk i 4 år og jobbet i utelivsbransjen de siste 17 årene og arbeidet seg opp til ledende posisjoner. Og hele veien musikken har fulgt ham.

Wilhelm a Tanzanian/Swedish. Now Oslo based DJ/producer.
Has since he was a kiddo had a big interest & passion in all kind’s of music.
It started out in the 90s with italo disco, house n dance. After a few years with with rnb & hip hop he found his way to punk, ska, 2-step & reggae in the late teens.

But now he is clearly starting to find his own sound. And the path is mostly minimalistic, deep, groovy with a slight touch of disco. With a group of friends I ran a dj crew from 5th-7th grade, we built everything from the cd racks to the speakers. Then we played on different occasions mostly youth clubs. After then the interest never really grew until I moved back to Oslo.

Spent last summer at Ibiza, playing at Various Clubs and villas around the Island. Such as Plastik & Ocean beach. I am a frequent raver and a true supporter of the scene, who loves to travel the world listening to music.

That has and is going to keep evolving my musical exploration.





Et resultat av Sydney´s åpne og yrende klubbscene, og en norsk dog varmblodig minimalist. Vari Loves vant Burn Residency Comp i 2013 og har spilt, booket og arrangert fester i Sydney, Paris, Hamburg og vår egen kjære Oslo de siste 8 årene. Hun viser deg sjelen bak spillerne og spiller tidløs atmosfærisk-techno/house til å bli forelsket i! Forvent deg noe deilig.




Nilseus is an Oslo based underground producer with something of an ear for a tune. Since moving from his hometown of Budapest, he started to working on he’s project, and released some tunes on Blindfold Recordings, Ardor, Doppelgeanger, Frequenza, and he’s upcoming EP called Myra, will coming soon on John Digweed’s Bedrock Records. He also collaborate with Collective Machine, and they are releasing a single on 8Bit, which is coming on the end of November.




« I see, smell, hear, taste and feel and let the impressions marinate in curiosity, laughter and contemplation until they burst out through my finger tips. Sometimes I’m surprised – most of the times I’m smiling. »

On an icy cold but sunny bright February morning, Robbin was born in the southern town Ystad, Sweden. Running around doing flips and cartwheels was combined with playing the French horn in an orchestra and drumming in a hardcore punk band. After music high school Crussen was away from it for a few years until he picked it up again when having moved to Oslo, Norway in 2005. Producing became daily activity two years of sound design studies in Oslo lead to a bachelor in Popular Music and Record Production in Southampton, UK. This was followed by a master’s degree in the same field at Kingston University, London.





Any standard DJ Biography extols the virtues of it’s subject so avoiding clichés is a difficult one, especially when considering an artist like Norway’s Nils Noa who has followed a similar path as many but has done so with fantastic success.

Currently the co-owner of Troll Records alongside fellow Norwegian Christian Sol as well as a DJ/Booker at Oslo’s superb The Villa, Nils Noa has had a multifaceted career which has seen him develop a teenage passion of electronic music beautifully. It’s likely that his few years of playing high-level football (soccer) in Norway, or his years in electronic/pop act Bermuda Triangle that has created a firm resolve and work ethic for Nils Noa but it’s a certainty that resolve and work ethic, alongside passion and talent, have played a huge part in his career.

Driven by a varied and non-discrimantory vinyl addition as well as the age old fake-ID fuelled trips to the local house music mecca (in this case the legendary deep house night Skansen and it’s DJ G-Ha – now a respectful colleague of Noa), Nils started his first night as soon as he was old enough. Monkey Business (an apt title for a night created by the playful Oslo resident) quickly became an internationally recognised affair as well as a local hit and Djs such as Paul Woolford, Yousef, James Zabiela, Nic Fanciulli and many more passed through its doors – in most cases before they became the household names they are now.

During the Monkey Business period Nils started to win international support, even becoming the youngest artists to grace The Essential Mix turntables at the time. A steadily increasing schedule marked the end of Monkey Business but the beginning of an exciting stage that to date has seen Nils play in over 20 countries worldwide.

Balancing touring, The Villa, Troll and a burgeoning production schedule has been second nature and now Nils is an artist that can be banked on. His music is frequently winning support from a cross section of Djs and there’s an feeling of more success to come.

Beatport profile:





Dromedar is an Oslo based trio, well recognized for their hard hitting and mesmerizing live shows in the cross between art-rock, bass funk, psychedelic rapture, and jazz sensible activist punk. (Other times mythical-poetical (Tommy Olsson).
On the upcoming album “Human Condition,” which apart from the debut relies heavily on analog synthesizers, the group is expanding their musical playground with dada mix style fusion dance music, bringing expulsion of corrupted xenophobic forces into sudden ritualistic behaviour.
The group’s novel utilization of a wide spectrum of influences and their visually striking shows makes Dromader one of the promising up-and-coming bands to emerge from the underground music scene of Oslo in later years.



Acke Peiling Og Michael Jaeger

To loka dudes med caps å lue, Acke Peiling og Jæger, spiller sleskig techno imens den ene svetter ut gårsdagens moro og den andre lurer på om det er hans eget, eller kidden sitt spy han har på skjorta.
Sammen har de spilt masse gigs de såvidt husker på steder som ikke finnes lengre, og et par gigs som ikke finnes lengre på steder de ikke husker. På fritiden lager de frekke bootlegs og ghetto-tech med fryktelig bass å housa hihats. Og barn, tydeligvis. Mvh Hood Drunk
