JASSS (DJ set)
is a sound artist and producer born and raised on the northern coast of spain. Jazz, african and south-american rhythms, were one of the first and formative influences of her life. In disagreement with the cultural and social norms of Spain she found solace in the unknown landscapes of sound. In her youth she was in punk and hardcore projects while developing a keen interest for industrial, dub and experimental music. In 2010, after moving to the Netherlands she began working with field recordings and electronic music. One year later in Berlin she began composing and scoring music for experimental films. In 2015 she made her first appearance as a DJ with a quite distinctive eclectic style that would become her signature. Her first record, Caja Negra ep, was released by the american label, Anunnaki Cartel. Later in the same year she released her second EP, Mother, on Mannequin records, these were the first two records of the series titled; Death of the Machines. Her first solo upcoming release, Weightless, on iDEAL recordings, combines her interest in electroacoustic music and Audiovisual performances.

Thomas Ankersmit (Live Set)
(Netherlands, 1979) is a musician and composer based in Berlin and Amsterdam. Since 2006 his main instrument, both live and in the studio, has been the Serge Modular synthesizer. Ankersmit has long-term collaborations with New York minimalist Phill Niblock and Italian composer Valerio Tricoli. His music is released on the Touch and PAN labels.
Acoustic phenomena such as sound reflections, infrasonic vibration, otoacoustic emissions, and highly directional projections of sound play a central role in his work. His music is also characterized by a deliberate misuse of the equipment, using feedback and disruptions to the signal, and the extremes of frequency and dynamics, to create visceral but finely detailed swarms of sound.

In 2001 Mattin formed Sakada with Eddie Prévost and Rosy Parlane. He has over 70 releases in different labels around the world.
