The first headliners are heavyweights indeed, let's look behind the scenes and check some of them!
Luciano was "made" by Ibiza. His star has truly risen as he sided with Cocoon in Amnesia, became a resident DJ at the crazy Circoloco in legendary DC10, and soon started his own parties in Ushuaïa club. He revived the spirit of the "old Ibiza" just brilliantly. "Luciano & Friends" gathered more than 4,000 people, soUshuaïa was constantly jam-packed. Cadenza artists have proven that techno does not need to be dark. The signature style of Lucien and his friends remains unchanged: top-skilled mixing of styles, with obligatory bits of Latin.
Chris Liebing, the creator of "Schranz" genre, is often called "Darth Vader" of electronic music. His long history includes becoming the No.1 DJ according to German Dance Awards in 2003 while playing at Cocoon and supporting Carl Cox, his own hard-sound showcase Spinclub/Giessen in 2006, then his heyday with most bright performances on Berlin's Love Parade, and, finally, the heavyweight CLR label. Now in 2017, Chris Liebing definitely remains an unusually contemporary artist, a living icon of the German techno school, in all its pulsating and brutal beauty.
Dixon is a true legend, staying the No.1 according to Resident Advisor Top 100 DJs year after year. Two decades of DJ practice in the most famous Berlin's venues such as Turbine, Tresor or WMF were an excellent school: back then people went to clubs for the sake of music and the DJ's talent. Dixon mastered the art to keep the dancefloor in suspense without any compromises. Today he is managing his own, world-famous label Innervisions. Still, Dixon keeps most of his own music works for himself and uses them only within his sets, making them truly unique.
Loco Dice came to Ibiza and instantly became a star and resident of DC10's "Circoloco". He is known for his unique talent of adding acuity to already fully saturated tracks and mixing them into unimaginable combinations with a surprisingly harmonious taste. This unusual artist is really a living insanity and his contribution to electronic music is invaluable. His releases on Cocoon, Cadenza, M_nus, Ovum and Four:twenty inspired new trends in today's musical culture, and his own label Desolat is a quality mark for a whole galaxy of headmost DJs known all over the world.
