Oliver Hafenbauer, born 1978 is resident DJ and musical curator at Robert Johnson, runs the in-house music label Live At Robert Johnson and his own imprint Die Orakel.

Conventional wisdom dictates that people produce music and then get DJs gigs relative to the level of success their records attain. Oliver Hafenbauer isn't a famous producer, but his behind-the-scenes work at Robert Johnson, the highly respected Offenbach venue, has given him a platform to show just how great a DJ he is.
If anything, his role as a music director at the club is arguably more complementary to DJing than making music, closely considering, as he does each day, who and what moves a discerning dance floor.

Hafenbauer also takes care of the club's in-house label Live At Robert Johnson which hosted a much-loved mix CD series but these days the label is focussed on releasing high quality club music from its extended family—Massimiliano Pagliara, Portable et al — and beyond. In 2013 he started his own label Die Orakel where he releases ambient, leftfield and techno records by artists such as Edward, Jaures and Roman Flügel.

Pional aka Miguel Barros is probably Spain’s best-kept secret when it gets to electronic music production. This young multi-instrumentalist that compulsively colours his tracks with his own vocals, first burst into the scene with a 12” on the Barcelona-based Hivern Discs, the label from his friend, the infamous John Talabot, unveiling a slo-mo disco anthem –“A Moot Point”- that aroused great interest.
His last reference for the label, the unique house gem “We Have Been Waiting For You” proves, this producer is one of the talents to follow and already got championed from people like James Holden and Erol Alkan.

Handcrafting a sound that explores house, deep textures or kraut influences relentlessly getting a special treatment, Pional’s three track “Last House On The Left EP“ for Permanent Vacation shows the great quality of this young producer, with his influences ranging from Moodymann to Matias Aguayo, from Caribou to Grizzly Bear.

Philipp Lauer is a producer, musician and DJ based in Frankfurt. He performs as Lauer and also as one part in Tuff City Kids with Gerd Janson.
Raised on a strict diet of hip hop & punk rock, Philipp finally succumbed to the pleasures of electronic music in the late nineties when he started to produce deep house tracks.
One of his most successful projects in the early 2000 years was Arto Mwambe with Christian Beißwenger (AKA CB Funk, TCB). During that time Philipp founded his own label Brontosaurus and they played many live shows all around the globe.
His debut solo album "Phillips" was released in spring 2012 on Running Back, followed by "Borndom" 2015 on Permanent Vacation.
In 2013 he started to get serious with Gerd Janson: as Tuff City Kids they put out one release after the next and started to play shows together.

There is a remarkable elegance to the way Pete, best known as Lawrence, found his space as an artist internationally somewhere between Hamburg and Tokyo. Lawrence produces, djs and at rare occasions plays live. Doing this for over a decade and fluently moving through ambient, experimental and club music, he now completes a trilogy of albums on his japanese home MULE MUSIQ, run by Toshiya Kawasaki. „Yoyogi Park“ (2016) is his seventh album overall and after many classic releases - also appearing on Pampa, Cocoon, Ghostly International or Underground Quality - he delivers what people grew to love: subtle but playful house and techno music, equally vulnerable and liberating. With Lawrence being a true collaborator, there should be hardly anyone interested in contemporary electronic music who has not been touched by his work in one small way or the other. A fleeting moment on a dancefloor, at home wearing headphones or holding a stunningly designed record sleeve. Together with like-minded artists, Lawrence laid the groundwork for his presence co-founding the free-spirited labels DIAL in 2000 and SMALLVILLE in 2005, also marking the beginning of his long-standing collaboration with visual artist Stefan Marx.
Starting out at the legendary Golden Pudel Club in Hamburg he now is a regular DJ in the scenes most beloved clubs (Panoramabar, Robert Johnson, Zukunft, Oval, Concrete...) where the DIAL allnighter consistently showcases the labels artistic depth. And it still isn’t all he does. One might also catch him playing with his experimental Improv-band „Sky Walking“ alongside Christian Naujoks and RVDS. As with his own music he found a striking balance of outlets as an artist, offering fragile concerts, exciting decisions for his labels and intense, emotionally intricate DJ-sets. A worldwide touring schedule with stops at festivals like Mutek, Dimensions or Dekmantel takes Lawrence to where he feels most at home: out there, sharing music.

Move D, aka David Moufang, is one of modern electronic music’s most beloved souls with a long and varied musical history with roots in 60s and 70s jazz, psychedelic, rock, soul and early electronica.

Making his first appearance on vinyl as part of a school bands competition in 1983, it was only another four years before he started toying with the medium as a DJ, playing funk, soul, hip-hop and proto-house.
In the 90s things began to move fast with the inception of his Source Records imprint, early productions (including the debut Move D LP ‘Kunststoff’ – Source Records, 1994) and the beginnings of a 26 album relationship with close friend, the late Pete Namlook. Since then, Moufang has become an unassuming heavyweight in house music as a producer for countless forward thinking labels, a collaborator and a truly original selector.

His discography is long and impressive and holds releases on a broad variety of labels such as Source, Modern Love, Workshop, Smallville, Warp, Running Back, Uzuri and Electric Minds among others plus collaborations and involvements in projects like Magic Mountain High (w. Juju & Jordash) and Reagenz (w. Jonah Sharp).

Not one to slack off, his live and dj performances have been on par with (if not superior to) his studio work, pulling from all corners of his diverse catalogue in order to create an experience that attacks the hips and head in equal measure.
His releases touch on house conventions but are delivered in his own inimitable style, leaving everyone - from long time fans to the uninitiated - with their jaws on the floor and their hands in the air.

Gerd Janson is one of the most highly respected DJs in the world of house and techno. Quite often, “highly respected” goes hand-in-hand with “underrated” but over the past few years, audiences around the world have also found out what insider types already knew: Janson is a DJ that reconfigures the classics you already knew in an unexpected way – and introduce you to new classics, a few months (or years) before you’ll hear them played everywhere else.

Raised just outside of Frankfurt, Janson came to dance music at a young age. He found himself traveling around the country to see heroes both local and international Masters at Work. Moodymann. Robert Hood. Techno. House. The style didn’t matter. He was hooked.

This genre-free philosophy been a theme throughout Janson’s career. House and techno have been an underlying theme, but listening to his DJ sets, you’ll often hear different types of things filtering through: UK funky, synth pop, industrial.

Janson is one of the most modest DJs you’ll find, and in spite of that he has held down a residency at Frankfurt’s Robert-Johnson club since 2000. Together with his partner in crime, Thomas Hammann, he has brought artists like Theo Parrish, Kenny Dixon Jr. and Maurice Fulton to the club. In 2010 Janson & Hammann compiled a Robert Johnson CD which made it to Resident Advisor's list of Best Compilations of 2010.

In 2013 alone, Janson played gigs in Australia, Brazil, Israel, Japan, Singapore and all over Europe and he also became a resident at Berlin’s Panorama Bar and Trouw in Amsterdam, as well as still holding the fort at Robert Johnson.
In 2013, he was named de:bug’s #2 DJ of the year, #8 in Groove Magazine and he was also in the Top 50 on Resident Advisor Top 100 DJ List.

Besides dj'ing, Janson is also the brain behind the Running Back label. He has released a number of highly acclaimed artists such as Tensnake, Todd Terje, Maurice Fulton, Theo Parrish, Suzanne Kraft, Redshape and many others. Speaking of being eclectic.

In addition to his work with Running Back, Janson has also teamed up with Philip Lauer under the Tuff City Kids alias. Originally taken on as a remix project, the partnership has quickly evolved to include original productions for labels like Unterton and Delsin.
It is similar in many ways to Janson’s work as both a DJ and a label boss – it’s the type of stuff that sneaks up on you. Quality, without being flashy. Wonderful, without announcing itself as such.

In short, Gerd Janson is one of the increasingly worst kept secrets in the world of dance music. A DJ versatile enough to rock just about any dance floor. A DJ who cares about the profession of DJ. A DJ worth hearing.

Ata is the daddy mac of both the club- and label Robert Johnson plus the house kingpin there. Upon returning to Frankfurt from a life-altering club night in Barcelona, he decided that he wanted to be a DJ, and has since come a long way – from his early days at Delirium record store, unforgettable nights at the Omen or his seminal Wild Pitch Club.

Since then Ata has co-founded the (very nearly holy) trinity of the Playhouse, Klang and Ongaku labels and the now legendary Robert Johnson club in Offenbach, a landmark in Europe’s club scene ever since its inception.

Amongst all this it would be easy to forget that he is still a DJ at the prime of his powers if it weren’t for his marathon sets that still have the power to turn lives around.

Because let's face it: There are more DJs in the world than basil leaves in Liguria and they come in all sizes, shapes and colors. Despite the latest developments and modern hotchpotch like laptop-deejaying there still is this almost metaphysical little extra pinch that's so hard to describe and that separates the wheat from the chaff. And for that Ata is a prime example.
How exactly this man manages to fascinate when stoically spinning records for hours on end, mixing emotion and intention, guiding the crowd is his secret. We may assume it is experience.

Isolée is Rajko Mueller, born in Frankfurt/Main.

Rajko was bored by synth-pop and EBM in the end of the eighties and listened more to rock and independent music. Friends made him discover house-music, hip-hop and techno in the early 90ies. He restarted to copy this on his old syntheziser and soon realized the need of more equipment.

After the landmark LP »REST« it took 5 years to maturate a successor. Rajko moved to Hamburg and well in 2005 the time had come and »WE ARE MONSTER« (Playhouse) drew massive critical acclaim from The New York Times over Pitchfork Media unto all those music magazines you read. It became one of the most highly anticipated albums of the year.

In 2011, he released his third full-lenght album "Well Spent Youth" via DJ Koze's Label Pampa.

John Talabot has become one of the biggest revelations of the last years.
He has gone from a complete unknown to one of the biggest electronic hopes in Spain. All thanks to his effusive house tracks in which Moodymann, J Dilla, Chicago house, Disco music and Northern Soul intertwine to produce organic and humane songs, full of life, and that make your hands and heart dance.

His debut album "Fin" on Permanent Vacation was one of the most highly praised records of 2012 and his DJ Kicks release for K7! in 2013 received much critical acclaim.

Gerd Janson has put together an unmixed compilation of previously unreleased tracks for Rush Hour. Most featured artists, including Move D, Roman Flügel, Âme, Tom Trago and Tensnake contributed more mellow sounds than we usually get to hear from them, resulting in an overall kosmische-esnpired feel.
