Clive Henry (Peace Division/UK)

Peace Division have been hailed as Danny Tenaglia's favourite UK producers so much so the last track he played at this years Miami Winter Music Conference in his legendary 12 hour set was their much acclaimed Trancesetters remix of "Roaches", now a tech house fave appearing on numerous compilations. Since its release, Clive Henry and Justin Drake have been quite deservedly heralded in the English Music press as innovators of their own tech tribal sound and reviews of their debut long player 'Junkyard Funk' have drawn this out. Releasing on their own Low Pressings label, tracks like 'Tribal Phunk' set the agenda for their stripped down, drum heavy house sound, while their remixes of Trancesetters and more recently Moby have seen them propelled into the mainstream.

Chris Liberator (UK/ Stay Up Forever/Maxiumum Minimum)

For the past ten years Chris Liberator has blown the minds of many people with his hard-edged acid techno and the energy put into each set he plays has given him a cult DJ status around the world. He is considered the ambassador of Acid Techno. Chris now returns to our shores for the Advent*jah Summer Festival to show you why he has been voted in the top 50 DJs in the world for the last three years running. If you are into the Acid Techno sound he's loved and respected for, you're not going to be disappointed. Chris is the label owner of Maximum Minimum , Yolk and co owner of Double 7, with many releases on Smitten/Stay Up Forever to name a few.
