Talal's releases have received support from Adriatique, Danny Tenaglia, Dubfire, John Digweed, Joseph Capriati, Joris Voorn, Alex Niggemann, Laurent Garnier, Maceo Plex, Petar Dundov, Richie Hawtin, Robert Babicz, Sasha and Steve Lawler among others.

Talal will also be celebrating the launch of his latest E.P. "Stay On" from Capital Heaven Records [roster includes Quivver, H.O.S.H., Ruede Hagelstein amongst others]

Pash (M2M) - in both sound and settings Pash is constantly on the lookout for the new thrills. The search brought him and his bag of deep techno gems to places as diverse as major international clubs, art galleries and beach parties of barely inhabited tropical islands. This year alone he made the dancefloors move @ the Ibiza, Burning Man and most recently off-Frieze Art Fair afterparties. His music choices are a revelation to some and a reward at the end of a long-time searching path to others. Do not miss! https://soundcloud.com/minimal_background

LaMelillo (Reaktion) - Laura was fully immersed in Italy’s underground techno scene since she was a teenager. Things were really turned up a notch in 2010 when she moved to London and got into the music full on. Vinyl at the ready she now plays in London and organises her own party Reaktion. This year also saw her appear in Madrid for Radioclub a Mororder Sound Club.
