Didi Han
More

Born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, Didi Han’s passion for arts began in high school. During university, where she majored in art and textile design, Didi worked as a designer. She first began blurring the lines between the arts of fashion and music after working as a music director for fashion shows and selecting music during fashion week.
Inspired by Nicolas Jaar’s performances, Didi soon delved into the world of DJing, and became part of the ‘Deluxe Seoul’ collective, performing for Boiler Room on two occasions, and touring in Europe and Asia. While active as a DJ, her creative spark soon led her to craft her own music.
Didi unveiled her debut release Forest (2019), sharing a glimpse of her thrilling production with lo-fi textures and flugelhorn sounds. Two years later, she released Wake Up (2021) on the french record label Roche Musique. She completed this house EP on her trip to Bali, drawing inspiration from the sounds and moments she experienced in the warm sunlight and emerald ocean.
Didi also released a brand new EP In the Zone (2023) after moving from Seoul to Paris. In this EP, she strives to capture the essence of the korean word '무아지경', a profound spiritual state where one loses themselves in pure focus, even forgetting their own existence. Just like the dancer who enters a meditative 'Zone' when moving with abandon, she invites you to immerse yourself in a world where existence fades at every beat, leaving only the rhythm of the moment.
Since then, Didi’s popularity has growned worldwide. She performed at festivals, clubs and headlining shows, such as Village Underground, Ministry of Sound (London), Festival de la Philharmonie de Paris, Badaboum (Paris), Circus (Tokyo, Osaka), Under Bron (Stockholm), Club Malasaña (Madrid), Potato Head (Seminyak - Bali) as well as Kablys club (Vilnius).
Furthermore, Didi launched her own unique curated parties Dance Therapy.

iagö
More

British musician and designer Theodore Ian Iagö known professionally as iagö, was raised on the East Coast of England. With a hyper-attention to detail, much of his work explores the dividing lines between various disciplines and the intersections between sound and image; soon establishing him as a designer who’s worked with some of the most pivotal artists of our time, from Pharrell Williams to The Rolling Stones.
This pursuit for a more all-encompassing craft that led him to withdraw himself from putting on nights at the likes of Phonox and David Lynch’s Silencio in Paris, and touring Europe as a DJ - through which he performed alongside the likes of DJ Hell, Pete Tong and The Martinez Brothers.
His track ‘The Wall’ was released in 2021 as part of a compilation on Hardt Antoine’s Reculture, alongside Argy and Dharma. This fierce tempo offering typified his desire to blend a variety of influences, and saw him gain widespread support from the likes of Innealea and Agents of Time.
His subsequent single ‘Last Ashes’ heralded the arrival of his most complete project to date: his debut EP, ‘The Chemical Wedding’. The highly clinical accompanying video of the title track, directed by Angelo Dominic Sesto (Gosha Rubchinskiy, LOEWE, Skepta), and featuring choreographer and dancer Sem Osian, depicts a grisly netherworld that embodies the harshness and energy in the track.

“Music from the past, present and future. Influences that span longer than I can imagine. Admittedly concluding with my obsession with the relationship between sound and image; David Lynch’s ‘Lost Highway’ comes to mind.”

Chippy Nonstop
More

Chippy Nonstop takes her moniker from her teen nickname (her friends called her “Chippy” because of her love of eating potato chips) combined with her relentless hustling nature. And there’s a reason the name has stuck. For over a decade now, the DJ, songwriter, producer, rapper, singer, promoter, writer, community organiser, even graphic designer has existed in her own unique and thrilling realm: one spontaneously built from scratch, manifesting in a bright, maximalist, high-energy amalgamation of all the sounds of queer rave culture that she’s existed in and helped create through the years.
“When I was young, I moved so much that I didn’t feel like I belonged anywhere,” she explains, “And so I really connected to music that just sounded like it could be from anywhere.” It’s a sentiment that makes a lot of sense if you’ve ever come across any of Chippy’s work; having grown up across the UAE, Zambia, Canada and the US, with parents of Indian descent, her sound is one that is borderless in terms of genre and style. It’s telling that she's been tapped by Major Lazer; has DJ’d around the world (including spots at SXSW, Panorama Bar); has played revered sets on Boiler Room, Mixmag’s Lab and HÖR Berlin; featured in Vogue, VICE, Fader, DJ Mag and more; has put together mixes for Resident Advisor, BBC 6Music, and a coveted Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 in 2023.
Chippy founded Intersessions, a series of community-focused, artist-run seminars aimed at addressing the imbalances (gender, sexuality, race) that still exist at all levels of the music industry, and also runs Pep Rally, a raucous night which centres both fun and fluidity. Accordingly, Chippy Nonstop has become a global name in pushing the industry to think more about disparities, inclusivity and accessibility while also ensuring everyone is having a good time.
Evidently, Chippy Nonstop has been leading by example and doing the damn thing. For over a decade now, she has been trailblazing through the boundless spaces where she belongs; and with plans to expand Intersessions and Pep Rally, along with new music and collaborations lined up, plus murmurings of a label, you know she’s just getting started.

SWAN MEAT
More

Swan Meat(Reba Fay) is a record producer and DJ from Washington DC based in Cologne, Germany. Since truly breaking onto the scene with her 2019 EP, FLESHWORLD (Infinite Machine), which Resident Advisor called “a dizzying sequence of references and samples programmed to shock and awe,” she has carved out her own niche in the underground, perfecting a sound in which sweeping string arrangements, 8-bit synth melodies, and gigantic kicks meet in a weird and eerie whorl. Her sound is exemplified in singles such as “SLUDGE,” “PSYCHOPATH,” and “BEHAVE,” among others, but especially on her latest EP, BLOOD SUPERNOVA, where her sound is pushed to its maximalist limit. A resident DJ on Cologne’s dublab outlet, as well as one-half of the techno duo House of Suns with DJH, Swan Meat has proven herself versatile and ever-evolving, touring the world with her extreme, uncompromising live sets. Fay also composes for video games, with recent projects including music for the Divine Disco in Bloodhunt.

"Usually I make off the wall, high octane mixes that sort of pummel your eardrums, for NR I wanted to make something softer and more dynamic that builds to a crescendo."

Whitley
More

Holding much of a hobbyist approach to electronic music until his teens, Whitley was nothing more than an average listener, often favouring more experimental forms of music. Although his tastes were drawn from various ends of the musical spectrum, dancefloor-based music remained largely unexplored until later in life. During this time, his only insight into clubbing was attending events in his local area which his friends would be playing at - usually messy nights in a function suite playing hardcore all night or shoddily organised illegal raves in a forest.

After he began integrating into the Glasgow techno scene during the latter years of his teens, Whitley's electronic music interests began to expand, honing in on a variety of old school sounds and eventually venturing into the realm of trance.

Having spent his recent years pursuing these styles, Whitley has recently re-ignited his love for hardcoreand pushed everything else to the side. With a particular liking to the Millenium style coming from the late 90s and 00s, it is evident that his passion for euphoric sounds is not going anywhere anytime soon.

As one of the Voight-Kampff collective’s founding fathers, Whitley's role within the collective has been responsible for the aid of launching VK, as well as his solo career, into much deeper territory than Glasgow soil.

"In this mix, I put on a display of rough, choppy mixing, switching rapidly between genres and varying styles of techno, broken beat music, and hardcore sounds. The aim of this mix was to challenge myself to move as seamlessly as possible through difficult transitions between styles of music that are not so familiar to me in terms of mixing as well as styles that I mix frequently."
