Christian Bolland has been a leading light of the electronic music scene since the earliest of days of rave. His first EP’s such as the seminal “Ravesignal III” featuring the huge techno anthem “Horsepower” appeared on the earliest releases of Belgium imprint R&S records along with all time classic techno L.P. the 4th Sign.
In 1996 His track “Sugar is Sweeter” went to number 1 in the US dance charts and 11 in the UK nationals, he’s remixed just about everyone from The Prodigy to Depeche Mode and the track “It ain’t gonna be me“ appeared on the soundtrack of classic rave film Human Traffic.
In more recent years Christian has been concentrating on live music, but is now by his own admission “back in the game” and has started recording new techno tracks. After a recent impromptu back to back session in Paris, D.A.V.E. the Drummer & Christian formed an alliance and he has agreed to play for you lucky people!
So welcome to Hydraulix Christian, we cannot wait to hear what you have in store for us.
Originally from Brasil, the dynamic Duo of David Merlino and Anne Gelfei have been residing in Berlin for over 10 years now. Otherwise known as The Pet Duo, they started life as a DJ tag team in Sao Paulo, with an absolutely obsessive knowledge of techno and electronic music they quickly become one of the cities top DJ names.
After playing an event with DJ Rush in Brasil, he offered them a tour or Europe with him, there they quickly made new fans and decided to stay in that part of the world, where they have toured relentlessly ever since.
Possibly two of the most dedicated hard working people in techno, they have now become Resistohr to allow them to play the amazing lower BPM techno which is around today while keeping The Pet Duo name for the harder faster stuff of the old school, but don’t ket that put you off.
Expect a set of dark industrial tinged techno bristling with energy and fun.
