Kraak & Smaak
Kraak & Smaak
2013 was another stellar year for Kraak & Smaak with The Future Is Yours – the debut single from their new album Chrome Waves hitting the # 1 spot in the DMC Buzz Chart and the German DCC Chart as well as being crowned Tune of the Month in Mixmag and being supported by tastemakers from London To Los Angeles and back to Amsterdam.

Good For the City – their follow up single with Sam Duckworth of Get Cape Wear Cape Fly fame repeated the good vibes with that tune also getting a Mixmag tune of The Month and also hitting # 1 in the German Club Charts leading to Kraak & Smaak being the most charted international artist in Germany in 2013 ahead of big budget rivals like Disclosure and Depeche Mode.

It wasn't just their original productions making waves though. 2013 saw a series of killer remixes with their Kinetic remix for Golden Girls making Mixmag's Tunes of 2013.Kraak & Smaak have been on a continuous upward curve since they first broke out of Leiden with their debut album Boogie Angst and have never looked back since, playing massive live band shows at the cream of the world's festivals from Glastonbury to Detroit Movement, EXIT to Bestival and DJ'ing at the world's best clubs.

They followed up their debut with the album Plastic People which gave them one of their biggest hits Squeeze Me before they released their third studio album Electric Hustle and the effects of that release are still rippling right now. Dynamite from that album was a # 1 radio record in the US, Let's Go Back was in Mixmag and DJ Mag's singles of the year and was one of the longest serving releases in the Beatport Deep House chart.

Their new album Chrome Waves topped US college radio charts in Jan 2014 and got massive support by tastemaker blogs like Earmilk, Dancing Astronaut and MTV Iggy, to name but a few. Influential LA station KCRW once again showed their approval by awarding Kraak & Smaak's single Love Inflation featuring dutch star Janne Schra on vocals their coveted "Today's Top Tune" slot.

The band have 3 single releases from the album planned for 2014 and with the strength of the collaborators on Chrome Waves the difficulty is narrowing down the field to just three as the album contains collaborations with Ben Westbeech, Joi Cardwell, Capitol A, Stee Downes, John Turrell, Retro Stefson and Janne Schra as well as Sam Duckworth and talented dutch jazz soul singer Berenice van Leer who takes the lead role in the Kraak & Smaak live band.
Anthony Mansfield
Anthony Mansfield
Anthony Mansfield has been on a 20-year journey through the world of psychedelic dance music ever since attending the now-legendary full moon massives of San Francisco' s Wicked Crew in the early 90' s. Anthony spent the rest of the decade in New York, spreading the gospel of deep house across the Empire State with a late- night radio show, his 8-year-running weekly, and the countless underground parties that gave birth to his own crew, HectorWorks Soundsystem. After an exhausting and debaucherous 2-year run as GM, talent booker, and resident DJ at upstate' s largest live music venue, The Odyssey, Anthony was ready to return to San Francisco.

Anthony hit the West Coast running in 2001, joining his old friend DJ M3 as resident DJ and co-promoter of the infamous Green Gorilla Lounge in a string of successful weekly club nights, true seat-of-your-pants underground parties, and blown- out monthly events across the Bay Area, with some of the city' s and world' s best names in dance music. Anthony has left his mark on Burning Man for the last decade as well, at the Space Lounge, Green Gorilla, and Disco Knights sound camps, with a trail of exhausted dancers and party people in the wake of his many epic sets on the Playa.
Motion Potion
Motion Potion
Motion Potion wants you to know that you are not alone. He shares your intense love, respect, and admiration for Radiohead, Colin Greenwood, Jonny Greenwood, Ed O'Brien, Phil Selway, and Thom Yorke (oh, and Nigel Godrich and Stanley Donwood too). To prove it he has bent every rule of club DJ etiquette by collecting, creating, and playing every Radiohead remix he can get his hands on. That this unique dance-floor meal is digested with both mainstream consternation and unbridled joy from the enlightened few, just encourages him to keep serving it. For the past 5 years, he has been cooking up complex extended sets of Radiohead material at his Electric Nostalgia tribute parties. This has led to the creation of dozens of remixes, mashups, edits, and vamps, the best of which, complied into the 11-track LP Subterranean Homemade Alchemy were released in August 2016 at We welcome MoPo back to Brooklyn Bowl on November 5 to play a late night post-Motet set of Subalchemy, including his tracks and the dozens of other amazing remixes that make up the world's obsession with its most influential rock band.
Marky Enriquez aka proof is one of the West Coast elite, throwing game-changing events and spinning coast-to-coast with the hottest selections. As one of the original members of Massive Selector, a San Francisco-based collective of artists, DJs, and entrepreneurs, proof produces acclaimed events such as Wonder-Full: A Tribute to the Wonders of Stevie, Soul Slam: Prince and Michael Jackson, and SFNY. Heavily influenced by funk, soul, disco, hip-hop, and house, proof's sound definitely caters to the dancefloor. His mixes, known for their global flavor and crossing genres seamlessly, have created quite a buzz with music lovers. Proof has played alongside internationally known artists such as ?uestlove, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Gilles Peterson, DJ Spinna, Bobbito Garcia, Peanut Butter Wolf, Dam-Funk, Prefuse 73, Flying Lotus and countless others.
