14 July: Mieux (live) & DJ support by H∆NN∆ x D!ZZY
Whilst their Debut EP Neufant still showcases a level of thought-through arrangement skills and advanced musicianship, it just doesn’t allow the head to take the steering wheel at any time.
Drawing influences from house, juke and bass-driven music in general, Mieux’s first EP carries a very unique musical vision – Next level club music that even grows on your home stereo, if you will.
While they’ve been releasing music on a free to download basis during the last year, they’ve put up an impressive live show. Glockenspiel, MPC, kraftwerk-y drum-pads and synths add to their tunes, making it an all around joyride for ears and eyes, insofar that you can actually comprehend what they are doing. Google Boiler Room “Mieux“ to get a glimpse of the basic version, which since has been ever expanding in size and sound.
DJ support by the fantastico H∆NNA x D!ZZY.
What a lounge opening jamboree!
15 July: Zuzee (Waxos)& Mr. Wisdom (Wisdom & Slime / AWESVM / AO&)

Oliver Hardy: "Don’t get personal."
16 July: Restless Leg Syndrome
In the case of their second EP Dabkeh, named after a popular Mediterranean form of line-dancing, the subject of the musical explorations is the Arab world. The three guys from RLS spent quite some time mining old vinyl or cassettes to create the tracks on this EP, in the hopes of getting some wild Dabkeh moves started on dancefloors worldwide!
17 July: FM4 Friday feat. DJ Beware (FM4 Unlimited) & Florian Blauensteiner (Klasse Recordings)
He is the kind of dj who will let you catch your breath for a short while, but that's only so that he can push you harder afterwards. Inspired by the likes of Masters at Work, Dj Beware knows how to keep the vibe of the party diverse yet unified - mixing up genres and tempos of music, as well as knowing what to play and when to play it. In 2008, Beware was picked by Daniel Haaksman's Man Recordings to release two of the label's best selling records - Tamborzao Con Scratchy and the now very much in demand vinyl only dj tool, Rio Baile Funk Breaks. Since then Dj Beware, together with production partner Motorpitch, have a released a string of remixes and bootlegs that have been supported from the likes of Crookers, Brodinski, the Count and Sinden,and many more. In March this year, Beware and Motorpitch will release their debut EP "El Toro!" on Man Recordings. 2010 is a busy year for Dj Beware, juggling his time between hosting a popular prime time daily mix show "Unlimited" on acclaimed Radio FM4 in Austria, bringing out both original music and remixes, as well as a busy gig schedule.
Vienna based producer and DJ Florian Blauensteiner has been passionate about music for the last twenty years of his life. Florian started out as a teen playing Hip Hop and Jungle records at house parties. Being fascinated with the sounds on his favourite records, Florian soon taught himself how to make music.
Over the years, his skill and determ ination as a producer and engineer have given him the experience of being involved in almost all technical aspects of making a record. From producing rap beats for MCs, to recording church choirs in Jamaica, to mastering the latest dubplates for Kingston sounds ystems, to engineering for chart topping intern ational and domestic pop acts, to recording the Vienna Philha rmonic Orchestra; Florian has pretty much done it all.
Nowadays, Florian has turned his focus in making house and techno music that is both driving and beautiful. With his strong passion for Dub reggae, and using this as the root and essence to his approach to club music, Florian aims to collect all his influences and experience into creating records with a unique sound and precision. Despite having only had a handful of releases on Berlin's Klasse Recordings, his records can already count on the support of heavyw eights such as Âme, André Lodemann, Ian Pooley, DJ Sneak, Joris Voorn but to name a few.
Be sure to expect many more good things from this experienced newcomer in the near future.

19 July: Diversity Sunday feat. Namby Pamby Boy (live) & DJ support by Lazy Mason
Peering about a musical landscape littered with these concepts, they built NAMBY PAMBY BOY to circumvent the stifling encumbrance that these words represent. Produced in their Vienna hi-tech-gear-head cave, their second record, Greatest Hits Vol.2, continues their quest of the indefinable.
NAMBY PAMBY BOY includes anything and everything and worships nothing - except Fun, and the Extreme.

22 July: Affine im Sommer feat. Cid Rim (Lucky Me, Affine Records) & Lehrl (Affine Records)
speaking of his influences and musical socialisation, the 28 year old viennese producer and drummer of JSBL inevitably ends in the 70ies of the past century. Think of the JBs, big band sounds á la Stan Kenton or the drum breaks, which widely opened his personal doors to funk.
Through constant exchange with his band colleagues Dorian Concept and The Clonious he sharpened his producer skills and also pushed forward into progressive HipHop and contemporary electronica. While startin´ as an enthusiastic sample digger his current works unfold a tempo-independence, a playful and interlaced sound, shifted with deep chords. A hybrid of programmed beats and analogue drum patterns meets razorsharp grooves and monumental power-steps.
Cid celebrated his debut in 2010 with his Full Nelson EP on Affine Records, followed by a signing from prestigious scottish Label Lucky Me where he released his much-noted and self-titled micro album „CID RIM“ in 2012. In the following year he continued with the 4 track EP „Mute City“. 2013 is also the year where he emerged as a distinctive remixer and collaborator. The last 12 months have seen him produce for Theophilus London and Spoek Mathambo. His trademark remixes for CHVRCHES, Mikky Ekko or Darwin Deez clocked up serious airplay all across the world and been heavily featured by various BBC radio hosts.

01 August: Affine im Sommer feat. Zanshin (Affine Records) & The Reboot Joy Confession (Philpot) hosted by Flowery Field
Exploring Zanshin will leave you with traces of any kind of broken step leading to classic electro flirting with abstract jazz and avantgarde. This is music that spreads from sweaty club floors to lonely rides on the night train with ease, a fractured panorama of emotional complexity.
He celebrated his debut in 2011 with “The Humdrum Conundrum EP” followed by the experimental rooted full length album “Rain Are In Clouds” on Affine Records in the same year. In 2013 he began to fiddle with uptempo sounds and served the “bass-heavy-broken-house” blueprint “Swings & Roundabouts” which showed his preferences as a DJ in a clear manner.
Zanshin is an idea, more a concept than a name, meaning "the heart that remains". As its roots are found in asian martial arts, it is hinting at a certain kind of vigilance and alertness, ready to react in any given situation. Something for your mind, body and soul.
Zanshin – Low End Fairy:
Zanshin – Esmeralda The Swift (Official Video):
Zanshin – Lilacc Locc (Official Video):
The Reboot Joy Confession is a galactic venture. With an uncut sound aesthetic the Viennese musician travels through different genre-universes. Utterly weird sounds of the next generation of downtempo house, a mixture of flashy disco and magic swing music, full of misteries and yet unshakably optimistic – it's difficult to describe this sound without letting the midn wander far out into outer space. Not for nothing the lates album is titled "Absolut III Way harmonious Enterprise".

A romantic is a person who believes in romanticism, which is like a philosophy on life. Romantics love nature, old things like castles and churches, love poetry and beauty, and have a tendency to get carried away by ideas. This can be both bad and good, as most of the original romantics stood up for their beliefs and greatly helped England, but also went to help people in revolutions and got killed. They also tend to get randomly depressed, but this is because the weather and colors and beautiful things make them act differently than others.

12 August: Affine in summer feat. Wandl & The Clonious (Affine Records)
A soulsearcher and vinyl aficionado who wouldn’t mind to know how to smash a breakdance in a jam packed club, usually he ticks out without being asked anyhow though. His journey started in 2007 where he participated at the Red Bull Music Academy in Toronto. Just 2 years later he got signed by San Francisco based Ubiquity Records releasing his debut album “Between the Dots” which received great attention and reputation all over the world. In 2010 he teamed up with his labelmate Cid Rim for the split EP “Full Nelson” and served a fine blend of various uptempo styles plus a collaboration with respected Detroit Vocalist Paul Randolph.
Over the years The Clonious proved his qualities as a versatile DJ from Vienna to Cape Town. As a remixer as well - you can find various trademark reworks for the likes of Alice Russell, longtime companion Dorian Concept or Krts on his visiting card.
