“Visually stunning” would be a total understatement. The peninsula, with its fine pebble beaches and silky turquoise waters provides the perfect spot for blissful endlessness.
...consists of Johannes better known as Findus and Bernie aka Acid Kayak.
Both were born in the beginning of the 80ies and grew up in the far out corners of Bavaria in places so remote you wont even find em on Google maps.
Well, since their surroundings then were mostly into cheap Eurodance, “Zeltdisco” and “Ru?scherl” they both developed a healthy D-I-Y attitude and started to throw parties from an early age on.

Probably Europe's one of the most beautiful artist and press areas. We welcome our special guests with an original ligthouse, garden area around and own luxury bathrooms to use.
Michal Zietara is frozen around 1758 and 1985 thawed son of Mozart.
By answering the question how guys came to Djing, the most of them talk about the tape on childhood. Michal would be happy, if he could say the same, but he couldn’t, because the guy is from Poland.
This is one of the reasons why he is dedicated to the vinyl medium.
Anyway, the whole guy is quite a subtle and colorful glossy magazine.
This is also the reason why he has a residency in the Suxul Club in Ingolstadt and in the creative collective WupWup, where he shows his being!
He knows how to handle his House vinyls, that’s why his rhythm is not just any rhythm.
With two strong debut releases on the Praterei imprint, 7 Citizens aka Viennese musician and producer Felix 'BNCKD' Bergleiter quickly nurtured a respectable name for himself within the small but thriving underground scene. Faithful to the analogue sound, he lays down anything from nostalgic house vibes of the early 90s, to the fine bumps of detroit techno. Considering his backround, some hip hop might even make it into the mix, considering his role in Austrias highly influential Hip Hop collective Waxolutionists.Together with Danilo Plessow (Motor City Drum Ensemble), he teamed up to deliver HUNDRED20, presenting their outfit of fully analogue Chicago crumbled house.

Stefan Karl Friedrich was born, raised and wasted in Vienna. As he was tired of playing music alone in his room, he decided to aggravate the people around him and started throwing partys. Together with his friend Hennes, he infiltrated the cities underground scene with the Viennese Wurstsalon. That was in 2006. He quickly realized that he prefers to turntables over office tables. Three years later, the two stumbled over an old sauna in the middle of a park. They took it as it was and build up a club called PRATERSAUNA (mainhost of the festival), and the rest is history. Nonetheless he never stopped playing music sports his skills and repertoire as a resident DJ at Pratersauna whenever the opportunity arises. His sets are a combination of new sounds he finds inspiring as well as the mandatory anthems of our generation, yet he somehow finds a way to challenge the audience in an effort to inspire the party goer beyond just tapping a foot to the rhythm. Lets see what Locke has got in store for us on Lanterna Island!–

More releases and remixes of this local hero are already in the works. See what the kids rave about.
Berlin goes LHF
Considering his meteoric rise to fame, it would be easy to stereotype Black Coffee as just another black diamond, a BEE beat magnet out to mine the insatiable upwardly mobile urban house party market. But as he proved on his South African Music Award-winning album “Home Brewed”, this DJ and producer defies convention. Sidestepping Afro-house clichés and stage-managed highs in favour of restrained sophistication, Black Coffee's penchant is for true Afropolitan house: home-brewed but fresh and future-focused. Expect almost sculptural balance and beauty.– http://https://www.facebook.com/realblackcoffee/?fref=ts

Pietro Caprioglio, a young venetian guy, creates the project Autre in 2008. After several years spent in the field of instrumental music studying drum, charmed by the research of sounds and animated by the desire of fascinating the dancefloor with his music, he starts approaching to this new horizon. His never ending research brings him to explore every field of music and so he can create his own and personal style through the years. He produces combining all the elements of his musical background with a deep-house stuff giving life to a new and original concept. Bound to his drummer roots he approaches crowd with groovy full analog live sets made up by using his machines and synths that move people from smooth and mellow sounds to harder ones and as he tells you a story. Resident at the electronic festival Altavoz, he immediately gains a considerable and positive feedback through the electronic scene and then he starts to collaborate with several labels.– http://soundcloud.com/autre
Cher Monsieur is one truly devoted dance-cosmopolist. Lead by a sure hand for exotica and obscurities his fingers have digged through the heart of darkness, built castles on the sandy shores of Rio, held the reins of the normads’ camels, changed the strings of shabby gypsy guitars, have clapped the castanets to the proudest flamenco dances, ... and they are still not weighted down with weariness at all, always eager to work that vinyl collection of pure black gold for the sake of a world-spanning, body-moving education in DANCE.– http://www.facebook.com/chermonsieur
Mister Scheibein doesn’t know most of his neighbours. Florian made his first active and creative steps in the mid-90s as a HipHop-DJ, Turntablist and MC. 2002 he made the decision to focus on the different playing fields of electronic dance music. The desire, to unify people through sound and rhythm and make people lose themselves in the flow of music led him to play residencies at Vienna/Feldkirch-based event series Stadtpark Musik and at big Vienna club Pratersauna. 2011, him and A:lex founded the label Leap Records, which also releases their own productions. His packed schedule shows Flo’s versatile DJ personality: secret weapon, headliner, warmup act or savior of the morning – it is what it is!

His sets are full of long teasing breaks, smooth beats and quite a lot subgenres of house. In the late club hours his preference for slow house is undeniable. His ability to read the crowd and atmospheric track selection made Mosbee a busy DJ throughout the weekends.

Her second album “Meine zarten Pfoten” was released on DJ Koze’s label Pampa Records. Hamburg concert hall tycoon and star author Tino Hanekamp writes: “In the broadest sense of the word, it’s pop. But ultimately it’s music that exudes so much warmth and tranquillity that it puts even the greatest bundle of nerves into a state of ultra-fine-tuned receptiveness.”– http://www.facebook.com/in.a.gadda.da.ada
Taking no shortcuts, he mastered his music knowledge, taste and DJing as one should, not by following trends but instead developing his own style. Mislav has left his mark in clubbing scenes wherever he lived in the past, as with his latest project known as Mugic Soundsystem. With his partners in crime for the past 5 years, Mugic Soundsystem has been pushing already notorious nights in Singapore known for its raw energy, own-built Klipsch vintage soundsystem and wide musical repertoire consisting of uncompromising mixture of electric funk, old school electro, house/techno hybrids, disco, various leftifield and obscure disco/punk/nu wave oddities thrown in for proper musical journeys, keeping open-minded listeners entertained throughout the night. When playing out, you never know what to expect from the man, but be ready for raw energetic music greatly influenced by sounds originating from Detroit, Chicago, Hague and New York. In 2012, Mislav joined the Burek crew, co-running the label and the newly launched DJ Agency as well as embarking in an A&R role for a new sister label Barba–

With almost a decade in existence and after many life-changing milestones to look back on the Soul Housing Project has finally found its feet in yet another form of it’s various incarnations over the years. Moving from a 4 piece to 5 piece band and finally peaking at 7 musicians on stage all at once, SHP has finally found a new duo format to explore their vast catalogue of original music. We couldn’t think of any better place to showcase this sound than the original place where the need to explore a duo electronic format was born, Lighthouse Festival on the island of Porec in Croatia. With it’s post card quality level of picturesque views and glimmering sunsets hovering over the ocean in the horizon you couldn’t find a better place for an artist to experiment with new music that audiences will be hearing for first time. After having debuted and experimented with a live duo electronic dance music set at last year’s Lighthouse Festival day stage, SHP is beyond proud and excited to again return to showcase their skills in 2016 with a set which will once again be an exclusive debut of unreleased, unheard brand new original music.– http://www.facebook.com/SoulHousingProject

Wir sind Pomeranze. Wir verbinden Klubkultur und Kunst in Wien.
t began with funk&jazz, disco to brasil, ethno, dub, 70´s german electronics, ambient, house, techno & trance till today. Point of interest at the moment: techhouse with worldmusicinfluence, progressive house & oldschool jazz&funk&soul, funky´n jazzy downtempogrooves, balkan, ... Various influenced music, different worlds indeed, but very close together - and all combinations are possible today - some of them we even haven´t dreamed of. I always try to find the right sound for the location & the people & the mood of the event - thats what i think a dj should take care of with his sets, the selection & combination & mixing of music create the vibes of an evening.
Let's face it: there are more DJs in the world than basil leaves in Liguria and they come in all sizes, shapes and colours. 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.– http://https://www.facebook.com/djatamacias
Marta is lately drawing more and more attention. Ever since her appearance at famous EXIT festival in 2013, she is constantly one of the busiest female acts in the region. Despite her regular bookings in her homeland, she is being busy abroad as well. Austria, specially Vienna, is where she feels like home. Those, who ever came across her, are certainly aware of her contagious energy and optimism, she spreads around. One can say the same about her music. Often you will find her play and play with various styles of electronic music, combining genres such as Dub, Chillout, Funky Disco, and Acid with Techno, House and Electronica. However her true talent is the ability to mix everything together perfectly. With that and her picky selection of music she plays, she convinced Etia Creations collective, label and nights, which she became an important part of recently.–

D-Nox & Beckers–
Born out of a shared vision of musical inspiration, the duo of D-Nox & Beckers has, over the last 10 years, firmly entrenched itself into the landscape of the worldwide electronic community. Working as a perfect fusion of studio expertise and an impeccable dancefloor touch, this creative combination of Christian “D-Nox” Wedekind and Frank Beckers has become a an unfailing source of massive grooves which have successfully infected (infiltrated?) all corners of the globe. With more than a quarter century of combined DJing and producing experience between them, D-Nox & Beckers effectively merge a seasoned musical grounding with a dynamic creative spark that never fails in its ability to adapt to the ever-changing vista of electronic dance music.– http://https://www.facebook.com/dnoxandbeckers/?fref=ts
Live performances of electronic music have gone a long way since the seminal decision of a few men from Düsseldorf to leave their Krautrock beginnings behind and to become machines. Since then, the list of successors is epic and technologically refined in the process: from the musicians who on stage incorporated electronics into their post punk aesthetics to today's laptop PAs blurring the lines between performance and DJ set in a club context. Of course the evolution of according concepts also proceeded in reverse, with electronic musicians implementing their sound into traditional band structures, and performing their music as modern interpretations of the latter, combining the sounds of the according analogue and digital equipment.– http://https://www.facebook.com/elektroguzzi

Born in 1986 in a parisian suburb, Jeremy is a passionate record collector and music lover who’s collection and knowledge of deep house surpasses his years of collecting it.
To most electronic music aficionados, Detroit native Kenny Larkin is a man who needs no introduction. His impressive 20-year history of creating arguably some of the most timeless, soulful techno ever created, is unquestionable. But, to the newer generation of club-goers, who aren’t aware of his contributions, 2012 serves as the year to re-establish his position as one of the most valuable forces in dance music today.– http://https://www.facebook.com/KennyLarkinOfficial/?fref=ts
Hot off the back of writing, producing and recording Loco Dice’s Underground Sound Suicide LP, Martin Buttrich launches his new label, Rhythm Assault. This project is intended to be an outlet for impulsive releases of his own music, free from the constraints of rigorously organised and planned imprints. The label’s first project gives birth to Collaborator - A two volume project seeing Martin release a continuous stream of brilliant collaborations with the likes of Carl Craig, Guti, DJ Tennis, Loco Dice, Timo Maas, The Martinez Brothers, Guy Gerber to name but a few. October 16th sees the first Collaboration titled Synchronicity, with Mathew Jonson. There’s a common misconception that Buttrich merely engineered the myriad tracks he’s worked on over the last two decades. In reality, his long-running partnerships with the likes of Timo Maas and Loco Dice were fully collaborative.– http://https://www.facebook.com/martinbuttrich/?fref=ts

Lake People is the solo project of Leipzig-based Martin Enke. From there he takes off to play his magnificent live sets all over the world. In his unpretentious way he has managed in a short time to create his own sound universe, which is difficult to be withdrawn. Not because it is so pleasing, but because it touches sensitive spots without jumping on you directly. Rooted in the vastness of melancholy electronica with a long techno past Lake People today produces a form of house that just because - or despite - is able to overcome the conflict between dance floor and pulled back so elegantly with its deepness and organic warmth.– http://https://www.facebook.com/lakepeople.music/?fref=ts

San Francisco Bay Area native Marc Barrite created the DJ/production alias Dave Aju as a vehicle for his unique take on electronic music. Working at his own pace, Dave Aju has come to be known as a reliable source for fresh and expressive sounds, combining knowledge and passion for the roots of dance music culture with a natural fascination with sound and an adventurous approach, unafraid to try new things. A broad palette of outside musical influences can be found in Aju's work, though his jazz upbringing and hip-hop foundation are clearly at the core, with an overall warm, laid back, unmistakably west coast vibe.– http://www.facebook.com/Dave-Aju-official-121620111246957

When talking about Kutmah, it’s tempting to use an epithet such as “the best DJ you’ve never heard”, or “best kept secret”. But we like to think enough people know about him now to make that unnecessary. Justin McNulty was born in Brighton, England to an Egyptian mother and Scottish father. He moved to the United States when he was 12 years old and grew up in Hollywood, California. It was here where Justin became Kutmah and ultimately made a name for himself as a talented underground artist & DJ. Kutmah became a member of LA’s dublab collective and then in 2004 he founded the celebrated clubnight ‘Sketchbook’ which forged fundamental roots of the now-infamous LA beat scene. As an associate of Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder collective, his mixtures from his time spent on the West Coast are legendary amongst those that know, and he’s also released several of his own original records – even though he’s predominantly a DJ, with foundations in hip-hop and a record collection that spans far beyond the genre.– http://www.facebook.com/KUTMAH
Whether making music between all the zeros and ones, circuitry and cards, with analogue gear or digital possibilities becomes a valuable art or just a service, is defined through distinctive character. Peter Kremeier alias Losoul is a member of a unique guild of producers that always has been blessed with its very own sound signature. Fuelled with his unparalleled ability to abstract the basics of dance music, tracks out of his forge blaze as typical Losoul grooves. Already one of his first and most famous pieces “Open Door” impressively exercises his practice of marathon jams that never go stale. But Losoul can also adjust to different techniques. For instance, when he respelled the words electronic pop music by means of a new alphabet in conjunction with the singer Malte, delivered his multi-layered as well as fascinating albums: “Belong” and “Getting Even”. And most of all, the producer Losoul consistently pushes these majestically and stoical marching 12-inches as well as delicate album cuts which smuggle themselves equally into one's musical memory. Losoul, you know!– http://www.facebook.com/Losoul-127066756261
Among so hot and famous queer parties in Berlin, BEITOLA has conquered its eminence in 2014 specially for having had great names as headliners, such as Elbee Bad, Tyree Cooper, Telephones, Lauer and Kasper Bjørke. Nevertheless, one cannot talk about BEITOLA without mentioning its resident, Mauro Feola. He has been delivering intense sets, mixing the best of what has been produced in the last 30 years, comprising acid house, Chicago oldies and new tracks, from nu disco to electronica, from house to techno. For mixing them in a very peculiar way, Mauro Feola achieves with his crowd a very ecstatic vibe.– http://www.facebook.com/maurofeola.beitola

Ogris Debris (as described by Frank Dice) What happens if you take two crazy minds, a jazz attitude, a techno soul, a house approach, a hip-hop booty, a rock bottom, a quartet of funky legs & twiddling hands and a crooning voice, shuffle it hard and top it off with a handful of beatboxes and synthesizers ?

One of the crew behind Eat More Beef Music, Santiago Lecce knows how to serve it up to the most carnivorous' house music diners. Starting out secretly playing his ex boyfriend´s records, the Buenos Aires born again Berliner became a full time party criminal by keeping half of the collection and making it his own. Dj booker by day, he certainly can get the most stubborn herd moving by night. Watch out for some premium cuts on his MISTER INSISTER Record label, launching late this year– http://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/santiagolecce
"San Francisco transplant and now LA local, Travis “T.K.D.” is one half of the production duo, Split Secs (Kompakt, Throne Of Blood, Jolly Jams). He cut his teeth as a mainstay in the early 90's SF music scene where he began DJing at the tender age of 17 in the now infamous venues like King Street Garage, Trocadero and DV8. He brings a deep knowledge of and respect for music to his gigs, a real selector in the classic sense. Drawing on disparate influences scattered across decades and continents, the guy has an uncanny ability to spin together a sonic Frankenstein able to mop up any dancefloor. He makes the new sound old and the old sound new. Never lazy, always evolving, he’ll have your girlfriend dancing on tables or your boyfriend trainspotting from behind the booth. He’s one of LA’s finest."–
The young French prodigy Worakls is a composer above all. As he grew up in a family of musicians, he started to learn the piano at the age of 3. Soon after the Conservatory, he finds in electronic music a perfect way to give his melodies this incomparable onirism and strengh that suit them so well. He draws his creativity from many genres such as movie soundtracks and classical music. In 2014, he creates the label Hungry Music with his friends N’to and Joachim Pastor, allowing him to fully express those influences.– http://www.facebook.com/worakls

Cem and Edgar are two of the masterminds and resident DJs at Berlin's latest technoesque night life experience Herrensauna. Their agile and captivating sets range from old school house tracks to deadly acidic techno bangers. Even though still young of age their sleazy bi-monthly celebration of sexual extravaganza is already more than known for it's high quality of music and ideal environment to live out ones pervy fantasies. Hedonism doubtlessly is to be used first when trying to find words for such a night.– http://www.facebook.com/herrensauna/
Maayan Nidam, an artist in flux, continues to change, evolve and challenge boundaries both in her Berlin studio and on stage. She has built a reputation as a fine DJ and producer who favours a subtle approach towards mesmeric moments. Her DJ sets, predominantly based in stripped-back, deep sounds, utilise an intriguing vinyl collection, using obscure interludes for re-contextualisation. This approach makes for some magical moments on the dance-floor, where a night’s highlight may come from the most unlikely of tracks. As a musician obsessed about sound and the technology behind its creation, her workflow places a strong focus on the studio environment. Triggering chain reactions between guitar pedals, drum machines, modular synths and acoustic instruments, generating sounds in unpredictable, exciting ways.– http://www.facebook.com/MaayanNidam/?fref=ts

Moving to Vienna in autumn 2013 meant a lot to Florian Stöffelbauer aka Heap as he has kept an eye on the Viennese scene for quite a long time before. Meeting a lot of like-minded people in a short time also inspired the popping up Vinyl-head to do his thing now: collecting and playing music he loves and bringing that music to people. In late 2014 Heap started his own record store called Discus Throwers as an online platform, being able to share his love for music with even more people.– http://www.facebook.com/heapvienna/info/?tab=page_info

Precocious talent Sam Bangura came all the way from the North West, near Liverpool, to explode on the London's scene at the age of barely 21. No great wonder, since he first started DJ'ing at 12. Hot wax love at almost first sight, vinyl is what dragged Sam Bangura into playing in clubs. His style cannot be defined in one word, neither categorized as easily. Subtle sounds grow together into a hypnotic rhythm to build what can be described best as a story. That is the general aim underlying every set of his, to take people on a journey and then back to earth. Surely this goal was reached in each of Sam's appearances across town, from the sets at Half Baked to the appearances at Damaged and of course London's Fabric for sets at WetYourSelf!. From not only electronic music but also reggae, soul, funk, jazz and hip hop, his influences are many and they perfectly reflected in his strong music selection, making colourful variety its key factor. Sonic oddities are perfectly blended in with rolling basses and synths. Sticking to only one specific sound would be a restriction, even more so when it comes to appreciating good music.– http://www.facebook.com/sambanguramusic
