A DJ for over 25 years, Jane Fitz is resident at London's Pickle Factory, legendary UK festival Freerotation and her own Night Moves, the party she co-runs with Jade Seatle. Unique in creating her strong reputation from DJing alone, Jane plays a hard-to-categorise mix of music that can take in early UK acid tracks, deep, spacey house, psychedelic techno and trance or ambient textures. That’s why you’re just as likely to hear her playing in the mountains of Japan, the beaches of Montenegro, the warehouses of Birmingham or the basements of London as well as in the world’s most credible clubs, such as Concrete, Tresor, Closer or Panoramabar, often playing lengthy sets or even all night long. Recent, unhurried productions have begun to surface under the Invisible Menders name (co-produced with Dom Ahtuam) on cult labels such as Porn Wax, Boe and Animals On Psychedelics. But playing records in obscure locations remains a focus. As always, there is plenty to discover, much to learn and more to come.
Wata Igarashi has quickly emerged as one of Japan’s leading DJs and producers. He has been exploring the deeper side of techno through well-received EPs on Midgar, The Bunker NY, and DJ Nobu’s Bitta label, as well as standout tracks on compilations on Semantica and Time to Express. By day, Igarashi works as a sound producer and the skills he has developed through his work are reflected in his productions, which are distinguished by their subtle and carefully polished feel. Igarashi pursues a similar sound in his DJ sets, developing a distinctive take on the more trippy and psychedelic brand of techno Japan has become known for.
