JAMES MUNRO (UK/BRASIL)
Born in the UK and now settled in South America, James Monro’s immersion within the music industry goes back some 30 years. Having been classically trained at school, James’ musical influences diverged into a long and keen love affair with all things electronic. From his initiation into the otherworldly sounds of Yello, Jean Michelle Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Visage, Human League, Brian Eno, Georgio Moroder and the more left field electronic experimental bands of the early 80’s, and combined with a deep love of the psychedelic bands of the 70’s, disco and early hip hop, it was inevitable that he fall into a passionate relationship with electronic dance music.
James has been a world-travelling dj since the late 80’s. He has played pretty much everywhere there is to play and has worked along side many of the biggest names in dance music. He helped set up and was one of the owners of Flying Rhino Records, the seminal trance label that constantly pushed the boundaries of electronic dance music through the 90’s and early millennium. He also co-produced over 100 releases on Flying Rhino as well as on many other labels as Technossomy, Stoop&Fidget, Slinky Wizard, Bumbling Loons and 4D and has been hard at work developing his solo project over the last few years. He has also produced music for TV and theatre, and is co-owner of TBrecords/Tropical Beats – a music label and DJ agency in Brasil.
Nela’s love affair with music started when she was just a child playing the piano. Her discovery of electronic music was an intense breakthrough where she realized she didn’t just want to play music but was inspired to create it. Embracing this new journey with drive, devotion and deep intuition, Nela’s purpose is to inspire people on the deepest creative level, the way only music can. Hailing from Tel Aviv, it wasn’t long before Nela made a name for herself in the local music scene as an artist with an influential and unique vision. She rose to international acclaim performing on every stage in Israel alongside established artists from around the world. But Nela wanted to pursue her dream even further, beyond her wild success at home. She moved to Berlin to join a new generation of artists in pure electronic music, in the famed city where it all began. Inspiration followed soon after her bold move to Berlin and Nela began to focus on producing music. She combines different styles: heavy techno grooves accentuated by percussions and deep, hypnotic melodies- music that is driven to addict. Nela is regularly sought out by some of the most exciting and high profile international nightclubs & festivals in Israel, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands & South Africa. She plays regularly at Kosmonaut, Ritter Butzke in Berlin and at Scorpios in Mykonos.
CHELINA MANUHUTU (IBIZA)
Chelina Manuhutu, born in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, is a DJ and Producer. Chelina Manuhutu is a true performer and a real star. Despite being surrounded with music in her early life, she found her fortune in the modeling business. But the true love never dies, in 2011 after ten years of modeling; Chelina and the music became professionally bound with each other. She manifests herself in several occasions at various places all over the world, from Berlin to Ibiza to Miami USA. With her Deep Tech House sound she puts down a funky and ruff image. She also spends a lot of time producing music in her own studio in Amsterdam.
VIKI MAKRIANAS (ISRAEL)
A meteor in the musical industry, Viki masters deep and tech music like no other. The sounds this beautiful Amazon makes are unimaginable and include ethnic sound with loads of groove and melody. This writer – producer – dj artist grew up in a musical household and has classical training. Viki became a force to be reckoned with in the industry with a growing global fan base.
