Andy Stott is a DJ and producer from Manchester. Since his debut Replace EP in 2005, he has released four full-length albums, five more EPs, and several singles. Drawing inspiration from the usual dub techno suspects and fusing them with minimalist ideals and bathwater-warm melodies and textures, Stott’s tracks offer a deep home listening experience, as well as the requisite punch to make club floors move. Blessed with an ear for space and a knack for constructing tracks that are simultaneously smooth and rumbling, Stott neatly strides the axis between intelligent techno, dub techno and dubstep.

Leeds & Edinburgh based duo Forward Strategy Group formed in 2008, and are seen as one of the most unique acts in techno today. Their lo-fi approach to modern techno & attention to textural detail has been one of the key inspirations for the new wave of industrial techno musicians.

Patrick Walker is resident and co-promoter of Unseen in Edinburgh, bringing the finest acts in modern techno to the capital. Smear has been resident at Leeds' legendary Detatched & Future-Past club nights in for the past 3 years.

FSG's work on their own label, and labels like Perc Trax and Stroboscopic Artefacts, not to mention their in-demand remix work for Zooloft, Bas Mooy, Perc & Justin Berkovi among others, has seen their records firmly planted at the front of many DJ's bags. Their new album Labour Division, their most diverse & accomplished work to date, has already garnered huge critical acclaim.

Their turbulent live shows have earned them cult status in techno clubs throughout Europe & beyond, and their marathon DJ sets incorporate house, industrial, synthpop and experimental music, all woven seamlessly into their trademark sound.

Bennett founded Whitehouse in 1980, with a mind to creating "the most extreme music ever recorded". They succeeded. The group remained at the forefront of the experimental and noise scenes over the next 27 years, invariably creating controversy and stimulating debate with their choice of violent and sexual subject matter, before eventually disbanding in 2007. A specialist in linguistics and unconscious communication, Bennett now helms the mass hypnosis experimental project, Extralinguistic Sequencing, which premiered at Tate Britain in 2010. For Cut Hands, rhythm is his chosen weapon; on recently released album Afro Noise I - eight years in the making - he utilises vaudou and Central African percussion in radical new ways, generating a sound unrivalled in its physical intensity.
