Florian Meindl is a DJ, producer and sound designer from Austria, based in Berlin. In addition to numerous collaborations with international artists he is busy with producing remixes (for Röyksopp, Hot Chip, Dave Seaman…), running his label FLASH Recordings and composing new music. He has successfully completed his BA studies at the London College of Music where his Loops & Samples brand “Riemann Kollektion” was founded. To date, you can find 20 releases with many guest producers such as Pan-Pot, Shlomi Aber, Christian Smith, Popof, Wehbba and Ramon Tapia.
Until now, his productions have been released on labels such as Trapez, Herzblut, K7, Kling Klong, Tronic, EMI France, Wall of Sound, Boxer, Hell Yeah, Great Stuff and his own imprint, FLASH Recordings.
If you ask Florian about the origin of his exceptional career, he will describe it as an “early identification with electronic music” which occurred in a small village in beautiful Upper Austria. At the age of 13, he bought his first house record and at the age of 16, he had already played in local clubs as a warmup act for big import DJs. His international career took off when he released on Trapez in 2006 and collaborated with Berlin head honcho Oliver Koletzki.
From his home-base in Berlin, he tours the world’s top clubs. His DJ sets are known, more than anything else for his precision in creating a driving, surprising and diversified vibe. Closely following the present development, this demanding representative of the next generation of electronic music is presently focusing on the expansion of his international work.
Every year Florian is working on a main project; on a milestone. In 2012, it clearly was his debut album WAVES. This year, he will move into the new “Riverside Studios” and start new collaborations – watch out and be up to date with Florian’s Twitter @florianmeindl.
Be sure to catch Florian’s live set at Monopark from back in October which will be the featured guest mix on HIBIKI with Shawn Basik.
Also, catch a glimpse of Florian at Holi Fest in Stralsund, Germany last August.
Always one step ahead of the game, Bart Skils has established himself as one of Holland’s most respected and highly demanded techno DJs. His DJ sets are praised by techno lovers as extremely forward thinking and musically well constructed. His releases and remixes for Drumcode, 100% Pure, Tronic, Break New Soil, Cocoon and Rejected are internationally rated as some of the most cutting edge dance tracks to come out of Holland in recent years. His reputation for tight productions gave him opportunities to work and remix artists and friends like Joris Voorn, Adam Beyer, Christian Smith, Nicole Moudaber, Kaiserdisco and Kollektiv Turmstrasse. With Anton Pieete he also forms the acclaimed techno alliance District One. As one of the main players on Amsterdam’s renowned scene, their percussive take on techno and house music are well loved by many.
Skils’ long running Voltt nights at Paradiso have proven pivotal in bringing Amsterdam’s New School generation together. During the late nineties Skils’ undivided dedication to techno already landed him a residential spot at the infamous Mazzo venue. This was where he promoted his first techno-fuelled nights, consistently staging the most futuristic in four to the floor beats. Many techno pioneers made their first Dutch appearances at these legendary nights and Voltt is still widely regarded as one of the leading events in Amsterdam’s internationally acclaimed club scene. His massive outdoor festival “Voltt Loves Summer” is praised by many in the Dutch scene as an absolute highlight of the year; over 15,000 party people attend this yearly happening on an old shipyard in Amsterdam!
With his residency at his own events, gigs all over Europe, and many releases and remixes to be played out on the dancefloor, Skils’ DJ star has been rising steadily and is shining bright. Persistently rocking venues and festival sites, he has further underlined his position as one of the country’s most reliable and authoritative DJs. His long lasting experience as a DJ and his ability to move effortlessly from deep house to banging techno make Skils a sure-fire crowd mover at any given party.
Catch a glimpse of him alongside Nicole Moudaber, Ida Engberg, Alan Fitzpatrick, Ben Sims, Joseph Capriati and Adam Beyer on the Drumcode Stage at the Awakenings Festival last month.

“Music was my first love, and it will be my last.”
Traditional course of a young man who grew in the eighties… Born in a small french provincial town, middle class music loving family, big brother as a teacher and dealer of good sounds, Arnaud (his real surname)quickly combined a passion for the music with an immoderate taste for computers and music machines.
Afterwards attempts at a rock band quickly fell through, influenced by the favoured high-school artists of the time (The Cure, Anne Clark, Depeche Mode…), the young man succumbed very quickly to the french touch of success in the nineties. Fascinated by Daft Punk’s “Homework” and Motorbass’s “Pansoul” and as a student in an art school, it’s under the name of Da Fresh that he began the first tentatives of solo composition. Determined and hard working, he produced quickly the titles which launched him onto the international electronic music scene : His first album “Supa Feeling” released in 2002 on the Lyon based label Weaked Records received excellent reviews, including the hit “Fuckin Track”. Oriented to originality and effectiveness : he has continued making tracks (Broken Dream, Spaghetti Groove, Age Of Love, Yesterday, Right On Time, Once Again…) and remixes for great labels (1605, Definitive, Toolroom, Armada, Funk Farm, Hot Fingers, BluFin, Moonbeam Digital…), as well as having created create his own label Freshin Records.
